Here's what the 2016 recipient had to say about the experience:

Truly an experience of a lifetime! I have always understood that our industry is based on relationships, but my time in London gave me a new definition of what a relationship business really is. The daily personal interaction and open discussion was a fascinating aspect of the Lloyd’s market. I had the opportunity to spend time with syndicate underwriters who shared their thought processes when underwriting individual accounts as well as portfolios of business. Previously, I had only a theoretical understanding of portfolio underwriting and never had the opportunity to see Big Data in action. Seeing how underwriters analyze and apply scheduled modeling to their parameters further emphasized the impact that analytics have on business. The knowledge and experience displayed within the Lloyd’s market makes it easy to see how they have remained essential to the insurance industry.
