BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROJECT MANAGER – WILLIS TOWERS WATSON
Working in London Insurance Markets was of great interest, because it addresses the safeguarding of personnel and assets, a theme to my working life. I did a month with a broker, Willis Towers Watson, a month with Beazley was planned to get insight to underwriting. The programme allowed me to network with many people and to find out more about what they did, often it was in fascinating niche markets. I tried to study and answer my own questions about insurance too. If there were outstanding things to ask the next day my mentors were very good and filled in the remaining blanks for me. I now help to win business, working with teams of brokers to describe how we will best safeguard major projects and operational assets worldwide for clients in Construction, Project Risks and Real Estate.
