Rockstar Series: Insurance Tech Masterclass with David Howden

Monday 11th July 6:30pm

The next in our Rockstar Series of 2022, our flagship event welcoming entrepreneurs such as  Levi Roots,  Kelly Hoppen and Richard Farleigh to name but a few.

This time we welcome insurance magnate David Howden.

David shares his journey from founding what was originally a brokerage with just three employees to becoming a leading global insurance intermediary group now employing over 10,500 staff and operating globally. As chief executive, Howden focuses on leading the firm’s M&A activities and directing and implementing its strategic growth and direction.

David acquired an entrepreneur’s ability to navigate major setbacks early in life. Having broken his back at the age of 17 playing rugby, “I decided not to go to university. There was no point if I couldn’t play sport”. Instead he started working for the family insurance firm, specialising in professional cover against being sued by clients for the likes of lawyers or accountants.

Howden has worked at several major London brokers, founded his own business, been bought and sold and backed by investors, and started buying companies himself.

While the pandemic impacted many businesses, in 2021, Howden Group Holdings emerged with an organic growth of 19% and impressive financial figures. Howden Group Holdings financial results stands testament to the health of the company and the work of their CEO. Join us as we hear from David, the tips to his success and how his business has thrived during uncertain times.

David will be in conversation with branding expert and speaker, Barnaby Wynter
