Meet the Trainer – Diane Jenkins ACII

I have been involved in training almost as long as I have been working in insurance. (That is 40 years.) I started as an insurance company graduate trainee (only woman) and within a year was asked to do induction training to the next intake of graduates. For many years I did training alongside my main roles but in 2005 I was made the director in charge of technical training in the UK for Aon (still alongside other things), so the team designed and set up a technical training programme, some of which I delivered. I set up my own firm in 2013 after leaving Aon, I still do training alongside other things for example providing policy wording consultancy and cyber policy comparisons for a policy comparison web site.
