Congratulations to the graduates of Aviva's 2022 Future Leader Programme


Authored by Aviva

On 1 November, we said a formal congratulations to our third cohort of Aviva Future Leader Programme (FLP) brokers at their graduation ceremony in London. After completing twelve modules on the programme, the evening was a chance for the delegates, along with their business owner sponsors, to celebrate their achievements and look back on their progression.

You can watch the graduation highlights here.

Hosted by Aviva FLP trainers, John Nutter and Dan Wall, the evening shone a light on the individuals. Featuring special moments from the course, it was an emotional evening with speeches from the training team, programme sponsors and the delegates themselves. Three special awards were given for:

  • Delegate’s choice award - awarded to Lee Elgie of Erimus Insurance Brokers.
  • Trainer’s award – awarded to Jordan Crozier of Consort Insurance.
  • Andrew Scott recognition award – awarded to Mike Shaw of M R Ratcliffe Consultants Ltd.

Brokers shared their experiences of the programme

“I leave the course excited for the future, wherever that is, and it’s made a big difference to my strategic and business thinking. Instead of just being the voice for a company, I actually think I might be able to lead it!” Valedictorian Oliver Burns, County Insurance Services.

“I would certainly recommend the FLP programme to any business owners, particularly small business owners. It gives people the opportunity to network with people in other businesses and test out the ideas that they might find on a program like this and bring them back into our business.” Andrew Gibbons, Mason Owen Financial Services Ltd who sponsored delegate Sam Gosney on the programme.
