Claims Apprentice 2022: Episode 4 – ESG Challenge (part 1)
The fourth episode of the third series of Claims Apprentice, in association with Insurance Post, launched today and is now available to view below.
In this episode teams Build and Unite are challenged to devise a ‘sustainable claims’ solution which relates to an insurance company’s wider ESG agenda/strategy. This could cover any part of the broader definition of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance as long as it impacts in some way how claims are handled. They then have to create a two-minute video and a supporting leaflet, which explains and sells it.
The pitches will then be presented at the Insurance Post Claims Leaders’ Summit where delegates will decide which solution they would prefer to invest in.
There’s probably never been a greater focus on environmental, social and corporate governance as there is today; not only in the insurance market.
Christopher Dunn, Partner
Alongside Kennedys partner, and head of the firm’s marine practice, Christopher Dunn, who the six candidates will be aiming to impress, is a trusted team of advisers who have mentored the teams and will aide him in ultimately reaching a decision on this year’s winner. For this task, they are Legal Director Denise Eastlake and Corporate Affairs Director Deborah Newberry.
Deborah and Denise each draw the team that they will be tasked with mentoring, to help them shape their ideas and develop a task-winning solution. They then work with their teams in formulating how best to present and communicate the solutions via a short promotional video and a complementary leaflet.
Solutions decided on and plans in place, the two teams then set off for Infopro Digital’s (Insurance Post’s publisher) studio to record their videos.
How will the team’s get on with devising innovative sustainable claims solutions, and recording and producing great videos and leaflets that will expertly explain and sell their ideas? Watch episode four to find out, and then the continuation of the task in episode five next week to see who ultimately wins this challenge.
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-up in 2020, is back again this year. Kennedys is very pleased to be supporting this initiative once again.
