Claims Apprentice 2023: Episode 5 – Claims Inflation Podcast (Part 2)

The fifth episode of the fourth series of Claims Apprentice, in association with Insurance Post, has launched and is now available to view below.

In this episode – the follow-on and conclusion to last week’s episode 4 - teams Aspire and Connect go into the studio to record their claims inflation podcasts; Team Connect focusing specifically on motor claims and accident repairs, and Team Aspire on personal injury claims.

When your podcasts are completed they will be uploaded to the Insurance Post website. (The team) with the most hits will win.

Alongside Kennedys partner, and UK liability defence and travel team practice head, Claire Mulligan, who the six candidates will be aiming to impress, is a trusted team of advisers who have mentored the teams and will aide her in ultimately reaching a decision on this year’s winner. For this task, they are Partners Mark Walsh and Sandip Sidhu.

Mark and Sandip, mentoring teams Aspire and Connect respectively, help them to record podcasts that are both informative and entertaining. They also assist with lining up guest contributors to the recordings: Mark lines up a colleague, partner Ben Appleton, to contribute to Team Aspire’s recording, and Sandip steps up, to provide expert insight for Team Connect’s broadcast, herself.

It is then up to the listening public to determine the winner of the task: the podcasts were uploaded to Insurance Post’s website, and the teams encouraged to promote their podcast via members’ social media networks to maximise listens, which would ultimately determine the winner. Links to the full podcasts can be found on our Claims Apprentice website hub.

Which team will gel and demonstrate broadcasting chemistry, and who will be the most natural and comfortable behind the microphone presenting their podcast? Which teams podcast will get the most listens and land them the win to make it 2-1 in the teams challenges? Watch episode five to find out.

Claims Apprentice, which is designed to unearth, showcase and help young talent working in the claims market, was a new initiative in 2019 and, following the success of that inaugural series, and the follow-ups in 2020 and 2022 is back again this year.
