FWD Group (“FWD”) today announced the launch of season two of its popular podcast series: Changing the way people feel about insurance… with FWD.
It follows the company’s first season of nine episodes, where FWD’s executives talked about the innovations and insights behind creating a new type of insurer in Asia - from building a regional business to creating an inspirational brand and leveraging digital channels to reach customers across 10 diverse markets.
Since its introduction in January, the podcast has broken into Apple Podcast’s Top 100 in several markets, including the business podcast category in Hong Kong and Singapore, while attracting a global audience spanning 50 countries.*
The second season will feature some of FWD’s innovators who are constantly striving to make insurance a simpler, faster and more positive experience for customers. They will share more on how the company seeks to bring its customer-led vision to life – from simplifying policies to communicating with customers, driving service innovations and more – in conversation with Fiona Mattesini from The Podcast People who continues as host.
The first episode of season two was released today and features Leon Dorai, Assistant Vice President in FWD’s Brand & Marketing team, who shares the company’s fresh approach to bringing insurance products to life beyond traditional brochures to enhance customer understanding and engagement.
Azim Mithani, FWD Group Chief of Staff, said, “A sincere thank you to all of our listeners and subscribers from around the world who tuned in throughout the first season of our podcast series. In our second season we will bring more inspiring stories and we hope our audience enjoys listening as much as we enjoy changing the way people feel about insurance.”
