Zing365 announces Andy Fairchild joining as Non-Executive Director


Insurance training specialist Zing365 has announced (14 November 2023) the appointment of Andy Fairchild as Non-Executive Director.

Fairchild joins Zing365 to help with its expansion plans in setting the standards for insurance and compliance training.

Fairchild was formerly CEO of Broker Network and Applied Systems Europe. He joins the Zing365 board as Advisor and Non-Executive Director.

Zing365 CEO Fran Burgess commented, “We are thrilled to welcome Andy to our team as we continue on this exciting journey of growth and transformation. We intend to be front and centre when it comes to shaping and improving training standards throughout the industry.  For too long Insurance professionals have been forced to complete their CPD and mandatory training via out-of-date software platforms and stale training content. 

“One-size-fits-all digital learning solutions may be a convenient and cost-effective way for organisations to deliver training, but unless it significantly improves the learner’s existing behaviour, it is likely to be a poor investment and de-motivating experience. Employees need the opportunity to access modern and relevant training in a way best suited to them, their role and their preferred learning styles.”

Fairchild added, “Investing in quality training is non-negotiable. The market needs a modern training proposition like Zing365 that delivers real-life benefits to employees and their customers.  By combining leading technology, great people and deep industry knowledge Zing365 are in a truly unique position to deliver for our market. I’m delighted to be joining such a high-quality company.”

By blending technical expertise, cutting-edge technology, and contemporary delivery methods, Zing365 is determined to offer insurance professionals more than just ‘tick-box’ training.

Zing365’s mission is to provide excellence in helping insurance firms and financial companies become leaders in professionalism, obtain the highest standards of compliance, qualifications and assist staff in gaining valuable business skills.

Rather than providing ‘dull’ e-training modules, Zing365 has a diverse and modern approach to training combining the personal touch with intelligent digital learning content.

Zing365 work with companies across the sector providing compliance, technical, CII qualifications, ESG and business skills training via e-learning or instructor led workshops.
