Isobel joins us with three years’ experience in the insurance sector.
She is strategic and creative, with strong interpersonal skills and experience delivering and managing complex projects. Always looking to add value to her work, Isobel has transformed processes, injected new ideas and reimagined outputs to ensure projects contribute to the wider goals.
Isobel developed her analytical and project management skills when delivering the content and strategy of an award-winning executive development programme which modelled the effects of megatrends on the insurance and long-term savings industry. The programme explored issues such as evolving regulatory expectations, shifting consumer preferences, how businesses should navigate political uncertainty and what empathic leadership looks like. Her experience at a trade association refined her stakeholder management skills as she coordinated large-scale diversity and inclusion initiatives. For instance, she worked with 33 insurance and long-term savings firms to get them to commit to publishing their parental leave and pay policies to help build a more transparent industry. She also designed, analysed and launched an annual industrywide data collection measuring the progress of diversity and inclusion initiatives and representation across the insurance sector.
Isobel began her career in strategic communications and advocacy and has contributed to work which reimagined how we talk about insurance. She modernised, expanded and relaunched a multi-channel campaign in response to the Government’s industrial strategy. The campaign demonstrated the insurance and long-term savings industry’s purpose and its contributions to the UK economy and society. As well as this, Isobel designed the communications campaign for the launch of a multi-million-pound charitable fund for significant players in the sector.
Outside of work, Isobel can be found making the most of all London has to offer. A keen traveller, Isobel has been lucky enough to visit places such as Cuba, China, New Zealand and most recently, Vietnam. She also has a keen interest in workplace culture and productivity, and is slowly but surely, working her way through the pile of books on her bedside table. Back
