Helping individuals and business owners navigate the complexities of protecting themselves, their loved ones, and businesses with award winning insurance advice.

How did it all begin?

I started my career on the corporate side of the Protection Industry, working to a senior level. My experience here highlighted to me that there was a gap in the market, to offer specilist protection advice by working with professional introducers.

In 2014 I launched Heath Protection Solutions. I wanted to create a business that supported individuals and business owners seeking professional, consultative protection advice.

What sets your business apart?

We support underserved markets accessing advice. Smaller businesses are often unsupported with protection advice, and do not understand the risk to themselves and their businesses of not having adequate protection planning in place. Part of the action required here is education. I regularly deliver in-house training to accountants and solicitors on how to identify and talk about protection needs with their clients.

I am an ambassador for the Chartered Institute of Insurance and their market initiative, this has led me to work with women’s groups to educate on the need for protection planning.

Self-funded, as an advice firm I didn’t need a large investment to get started.

Some of the challenges you have faced and how you overcame them?

I have worked in a male dominated industry for over 20 years, and in most meetings, at the start of my career was the only woman in the room. I always went into every meeting with a plan of what I hoped to achieve. Preparation and speaking up were key.

Why is it important to support women-led business?

Women bring unique perspectives and problem-solving approaches to business. Women led businesses create role models and encourage entrepreneurship in younger women.
