Insurance is more than just a bill from the doctor’s office or a strategy for your company. It’s a connected ecosystem teeming with opportunities, innovations, and dynamic individuals. Come explore this changing environment with Christopher Laubenthal, MPA, Data and Visualization Consultant, as he meets with Lockton’s best and brightest to talk about their work, their world, and how it all fits together.
Trust the process: Surety and growth
Since Lockton’s inception, surety has been at its core. Jack Lockton founded his company as a construction and surety brokerage more than 50 years ago. Today, Lockton is one of the largest surety brokers in the world. Patrick Pribyl, Lockton’s National Surety Practice Leader, walks us through the group's history, its founding principles of service and data, and how Lockton still applies those today.
Firewall: Protecting innovation in the internet age
The internet is endless information, connectivity, and ultimately, risk. Our conversation today is about not letting that risk deter us from innovating in the most compelling ways. The secret? Thinking critically and building understanding. Lockton’s Cyber and Technology Practice Lead, Anthony Dagostino, will share how to do just that.
Giving it your best shot: Helping employers with vaccination strategies
Access to vaccines is increasing quickly thanks to the hard work of many across the globe. As we vaccinate through groups like first responders, employers should begin to consider their role in this process. What is the right strategy for their on-site workforce and how will it impact their work site? Paula Day, Lockton’s Director of HR Compliance Consulting, walks us through these complex and important issues.
Breaking bread: Insuring food and beverage
Whether it's your family's favorite dessert, the historical significance of sharing a meal, or even its impact on the idioms we use; there is something special about food and beverage. Yet, we do not frequently think of the ecosystem that makes these things possible. Today’s guest, Matt Klein, Lockton’s Food and Beverage Practice Leader, walks us through that ecosystem, explaining the power of its people and the unique challenges they face.
The road to success: Innovating data
In this episode, Amit Mantrow, Lockton’s Chief Data and Analytics Officer describes the key to success in the modern workplace—applied data. He shares how companies use information to drive wisdom at all levels and why it's so important for innovation.
The mother of all invention: COVID-19 and innovation
History is full of moments when people innovated their way out of the unknown. In the face of the unthinkable during 2020, we adapted our lives and livelihood, but like any other massive change this response introduced different risks than before. Mark Moitoso, EVP-Risk Practices, walks us through some of the larger innovations during this time, the correlated changes to risk, and what he believes will stay around long term.

Fantastic perspective of a unique company
The host is engaging and the guests are very knowledgeable and communicate well. This is a very informative and helpful podcast. Keep up the fantastic content!
This is a level-up podcast
This is a level-up podcast. What do I mean by that? You’re smart. You know lots of things, some of them incredibly deeply, some of them at a more surface level. Christopher and his guests take the knowledge you have and show you, through what they do with their own knowledge and resources, what comes next. What good processes look like, and the kind of questions that you can ask of yourself and your organization to build the best version of whatever it is you are doing. All related to a diverse set of topics that touch the world of insurance. And so you level-up. You gain experience and see new and interesting ways to apply the skills you have.
The cherry on top is Christopher’s references. “The financial version of Indiana Jones” reference in the last episode (9/22/20) was awesome.
Interesting and engaging
Interesting topics, great host. A well-produced and researched podcast. Not just for those in the field.
