Emma Thomson on promoting positive protection insurance stories - MAF140
My guest on the show this week is Emma Thomson.
We talk about building LifeSearch, promoting positive protection stories, and the Protection Distributors Group.
It's a great interview full of insights and ideas about company culture and customer engagement.
Welcome to episode 140 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.
We chat about:
The success of LifeSearch, one of the UK's biggest protection insurance intermediaries
How company culture is important in developing a true customer focus
Making sure people see positive PR stories rather than focusing on the odd negative one
How real stories about the experiences of real people are the best way of broaching a dull subject like insurance
How creating your own awards event can improve products and service in your industry
The development and successes to date of the Protection Distributors Group
This is an awesome interview and we cover so much ground and Emma has such an infectious passion for a subject that many people feel is pretty dull.
