The last twelve months have seen more than 200 Discover Risk events delivered in schools, colleges and companies. In addition since its inception Discover Risk has run more than 150 university events for many thousands of undergraduates and supporting companies and practitioners, providing a compelling introduction to the insurance profession.
In 2013/2014, one of my particular highlights was running an event at a school where one of my supporters had been a student at the same school just the previous year. The Discover Risk event that he attended as a student was the spur for him to apply for jobs in the sector. That was a very rewarding moment.
We receive some really positive feedback regarding Discover Risk and it’s clear that students are starting to appreciate the benefits of the sector - the perception of insurance is changing.
