Backing your ambitions – all the way to the top

Releasing your senior team to take time for learning and development can seem like a big ask when running a busy brokerage, but the benefits are not to be ignored. You and your team can transform your business by engaging in training and support designed specifically for senior and emerging leaders. In the second of two Future Leader Programme owners’ stories, we talk to Anthony Adler of Adler Fairways Chartered Insurance Brokers.

In 2019, Anthony sponsored Neil Thomsett, Group Resources Manager, at Adler Fairways to join the Aviva Future Leader Programme as a delegate. Anthony reflects on the skills required to run a brokerage and how having Neil on the Aviva Future Leader Programme has helped to transform the business.

Commenting on what it takes to support a future leader,  Anthony shares “I’ve seen such an improvement within Neil, once he completed his diploma and his twelve months on the Aviva Future Leader Programme, I made him a statutory director. As an owner, you’ve got to be prepared to support the individual, because it does need a lot of commitment, but you will get the rewards, the individual will get the rewards but also the brokerage.”
