After his initial aspirations to follow in his father’s firefighting footsteps were dashed, Lee Elliston took to the world of insurance within a claims role in Ipswich with Willis.
Lee talks about his journey in to the City, clarifies the role and function of the Lloyd’s Market Association and opens up about his recent and ongoing battle with anxiety and depression.
“I found it really hard because of the masculinity barrier. Speaking up was something I delayed, delayed and delayed because I felt as though I was expected to just deal with it”.
He shares with host, Nick Hoadley, how critical it is for the market to establish a talent pipeline to attract diverse backgrounds and skills to the industry, his favourite success quotes and how the culture, brand and values of the LMA are driving its success and supporting the standards of the market.
Lee talks about the importance of connecting with individuals and encourages us to use our networks within the market place and wider value chain to build our careers.
