From a work perspective, the growth of the cyber and technology practice at Gilchrist Connell both internally and externally culminating in the development of a team of colleagues able to assist in cyber and technology matters and invitations to tender for and the appointment onto various insurer panels.

I am a strong advocate of Gilchrist Connell’s “Listen. Engage. Solve” mantra, which succinctly represents a set of service principals we have always held ourselves to.
