The LiiP with Huw Edwards, CEO, Co-Founder, CyberFortress, S1, E33

This podcast is also available on:

When running an Insurance leadership Podcast it's sometimes nice to connect with someone on something that isn't just Insurance. Huw Edwards is a CEO and Co-Founder on a mission firstly to deliver a world-class insurance solution to eCommerce businesses with Cyber Fortress but also to rescue "over-educated, high achievers from corporate suffering".

It's a mission that we both share - you can work hard, be successful outside of the big corporate world so why don't more people do it?  

This was a fun conversation, in it we talk about:

  • How the Welsh accent is received in the USA (as Australian)
  • How parametric applies to the eCommerce industry and why it's a better model for SMEs
  • Capturing the human element in the cyber risk model
  • Building the right partnerships for cyber cover  
  • SME cyber - is the consumer educated enough to the risk?
  • Embedded insurance finding the right partners and the right touchpoints on the consumer journey
  • Corporate life - why is Huw on a mission to "alleviate suffering" for corporate  
  • We talk entrepreneurship and ultra-marathons - you can't control all the variables bad things will happen
  • I foolishly announce I'm doing an Ultra-marathon.....
  • Can you learn entrepreneurship?
  • Huws journey from Oxford - Goldmans - Bridgewater capital to entrepreneur the search for purpose  
  • Entrepreneurship theme - we don't like to be told what to do!
  • Is creativity the thing corporate culture crushes?
  • Can we allow people more freedoms in corporate culture? What's the balance?
  • How do we connect as teams in a fully remote environment?
  • Does the office make way for the creative hubs/meeting space/clubhouse?
  • Don't demonize the corporate culture - all corporates were a start-up once!
  • Intrapreneur? BS?

Innovation labs -  without budget and authority what's the point?  

Thanks, Huw for your time - I really enjoyed that conversation!
