We would like to say a big thank you to all the attendees of the 3rd Cohort Brokerbility Academy Induction Event in October.

Without exception they enthusiastically joined in with all the challenges and were a credit to their companies.

The quality of the candidate’s remains as high as ever and we hope that they enjoyed the experience and took something away that will inspire them throughout their careers. We certainly thought that they were a great bunch of young people who we will support through their apprenticeships and beyond, along with BPP.

Georgia Hollis, one of our first successful graduates of the Brokerbility Academy, joined David McCallum in a ‘World of Work’ conversation giving first-hand insight to the apprentices of how her career has progressed since her apprenticeship.

Well done to team ‘Broker Beez’ who won the Apprentice Challenge team prize and Kyle Tompkins (BHIB) and Ellie Read (Clear) winners of the individual awards.
The teams worked together to produce an advert to encourage young school leavers into the profession by way of an apprenticeship.

This year’s keynote speaker was Nathan Littleton who set up his first successful business at the age of 12. Nathan who is still only 26, shared his experiences creating a powerful 'can do' message of hope, enterprise and ingenuity.

Our guest speakers again included both Sian Fisher (CEO of the CII) and Steve White (CEO of BIBA) who each presented their views on the profession today from their different perspectives.
We are proud that they continue to be happy to support the Brokerbility Academy at our key events.

Ken Wright (Axa Head of Broker Development) who has been ‘Loving Insurance Since 1987’, showed how technology has moved on since when he joined the profession.
He urged the apprentices to be open to a variety of experiences which is key to building credibility and maintaining personal interest.

Ashwin Mistry, Chairman of Brokerbility closed the event before member broker Miles Smith kindly gave the group a tour of Lloyds of London.
