Ep 56 Like 2001, but completely different: Andrew Brooks CEO Ascot Group

Ascot has been one of Lloyd’s great success stories of the past 2 decades yet its CEO Andrew Brooks doesn’t have the sort of public profile that one would expect to go with the job.

In our talk Andrew is engaging and very open and forthcoming about Ascot’s way of doing things.
