Totally new look at insurance-refreshing!

No more full and boring traditional insurance. Really interesting, innovative thoughts, ideas and brands focus. Love it. Keep doing what you do.

Pronouns

I really love this podcast. It’s high quality and interesting.

My only criticism is that I find the guests often use the pronoun ‘he’ to describe pretty much everyone who works in the industry. For example, ‘if we look at a standard CEO HE will do this...’

I know the industry doesn’t have a lot of diversity but I’m sure there are females in the industry to justify changing to ‘they’.

Note, this is only the guests, the presenters are fab!
