The De-risked New Insurance Brokerage Paul Deftly Built

As part of her insurance PR remit, Jane Hunt talks to Paul Howley, the very first insurance account executive who was selected for her insurance PR client, Gauntlet Group’s, new initiative, Gauntlet Brokerage Builder.

Gauntlet Brokerage Builder is a unique entry scheme into the world of insurance broking for anyone who wants to de-risk their future insurance business or who does not have the financial buffer to move straight from employment into self-employment without an instant client base. 

This programme, part of Gauntlet’s championing of a local broker renaissance in the UK, through its appointed representative network of brokers, the Gauntlet AR Network, allows aspiring individuals to work towards key goals.  These ultimately enable them to leave the programme with the ‘keys’ to their own insurance brokerage, if they have hit all targets along the way. 

Paul has done with this great aplomb, speeding his way through the programme and demonstrating how successful an ambitious account executive can be, if they put in the hard work. He now shares his story of what it has taken to achieve his dream of owning his own brokerage.

Jane finds out just what is needed, in terms of an individual’s approach to the programme and future self-employment and learns all about Paul’s first-hand experience. 

She also hears all about Paul’s future new business, set to launch on June 1, and what his aims and growth plan will be, once he becomes a fully-fledged appointed representative.

The episode should inspire anyone who works in insurance sales and who dreams of being their own boss one day but who cannot see how that is achievable, given their current circumstances or commitments.

It also helps highlight Catapult PR’s specialism as an insurance PR agency and also as a financial services PR agency and specialist.
