Since being founded in 1688 Lloyd’s of London has grown into a marketplace supporting over £35 billion of premium. Innovation is at the heart of its success. More recently the “Lloyd’s Lab” has supported over 100 companies from around the world that are helping insurers find new solutions for the insurance protection gap and improving efficiencies.

Dawn Miller joined Lloyd’s of London as the Commercial Director in 2022 after a career with some well-known global insurers - having cut her teeth as an investor and entrepreneur.

One of Dawn’s responsibilities is helping the Lloyd’s market (which includes 50 insurance companies and 380 brokers) identify new types of insurance to offer, improve efficiencies  - and support customers from global enterprises to small businesses around the world.

Join us for this episode to discover:

  • The range of Dawn’s responsibilities which includes the Lloyd’s Lab, the Product Launch Lab and FutureMinds.
  • Some of the milestones and success stories from the Lloyd’s Lab.
  • What is involved with applying to the Lab and becoming a mentor. Tips and great insights to help you apply for the Lab right now - wherever in the world you are.
  • How Lloyd’s is addressing the evolving challenges and opportunities in the measurement and management towards reducing carbon emissions and ESG more generally.
  • Implications of insuring new assets such as a hydrogen pipeline compared to other liquified gases.
  • What’s going on with all the debris in space and if it is insurable.
  • Whether Lloyd’s will ever want to be an investor.

We are delighted to be supported by Lloyd’s and supporting the Lab. Many of our corporate members have been through the lab, including the ones we discuss such as Previsico, McKenzie Intelligence Services, OTT Risk, hyperexponential and Praedicat.
