Henry Gale’s midweek special: What it’s like to be a young person in insurance


Henry Gale spoke to four young people across the insurance industry to produce a podcast about what it's like to be a young person in insurance.

Ainsley Martin, Beazley; Kinga Wazydrag, Markel; Areefih Ghaith, Quantexa; Adam Yasir, Aon Inpoint, share personal experiences in the industry and discuss what the industry can learn from young people - covering topics like diversity & inclusion, technology and social media. The guests highlight where the industry has done well in those areas as well as where insurers can learn from the next generation.
