At Ethos Broking, we’re dedicated to supporting our Regional Brokers in giving their people the opportunities that they need to flourish. 2020 marked the first year of our Ethos Accelerate programme, which saw talented individuals across our Regional Brokers come together to pave their way as future leaders in the insurance industry.
Along the way, our learners have delved into key skills and practices that they can put into effect in their own roles, including communication and emotional intelligence, strategic foresight and thinking, personal branding and executive presence.
As the programme has now drawn to a close, we’ve spoken to a few of our participants to find out what they’ve taken from the experience.
“The programme opened the door to the possibilities on offer within the Ardonagh group if I was willing to step outside my comfort zone, challenge myself, build networks and show a willingness to want to improve both my professional standards and relationship building skills. Being able to interact with peers from across the group who were all passionate about wanting to be the best versions of themselves is extremely inspiring and infectious. I would totally recommend this course to anyone who wants to embrace a challenge, is open to change and wants to build a legacy.”

“The Accelerate Course has been a magnificent experience for myself and I have benefited from working with likeminded individuals across the Ethos Group. My team were a wonderful group of people who I cannot wait to work with again on new projects to help take Ethos forward.
The course delivery was superb and at a manageable pace with everyone fully adapting to the “new normal”. I will forever be grateful for this opportunity and would encourage any motivated and driven individual within the business to put themselves forward next year.”

“In partnership with Arcadia Consulting, Ethos created a bespoke leadership program that inspired us all. Despite being run virtually the course was highly engaging and provided us with lots of useful information about becoming a successful leader. We learnt about ideas and techniques that we can use in our everyday working lives to improve our communication, strategic thinking and presentation skill sets. The course also challenged us to look at our own personal branding and share our future career plans. Working in collaborative cross broker teams enabled us to produce innovative business ideas, this was the highlight of the program for me. I am sure this is only the beginning of an exciting new path for us all.”
