In this episode Jack chats to entrepreneur Phoebe Hugh who is on a mission to bring justice to the insurance industry. In an age of dodgy online deals it’s a big task but Phoebe is no stranger to hard graft.

But tenacity isn’t the only thing that has catapulted her to CEO status in her mid twenties – for Phoebe taking calculated risks is not just her business, it’s a way of life.
