’We invite brokers to take the lead on their own learning journeys,’ says head of organisational development 

Insurance broker Konsileo has launched its own academy as it looks to expand its peer-to-peer learning.

Called the Konsileo Academy, the content included will be organised into four pillars –  insurance knowledge, business development, compliance and operational and personal effectiveness.  

Online learning will be hosted on a platform developed by Zing365, with Konsileo’s proprietary courses, insurer content and third-party CII accredited e-learning modules available on demand.

Allan Rhodes, head of organisational development at Konsileo, said: “We observed that a lot of brokers within the community were reaching out to others for advice.

“Konsileo Academy will give a structure and rhythm to these interactions. It formalises and accelerates the exchange of learning that is already happening within the organisation.”


Konsileo Academy will also facilitate peer-to-peer learning of practical skills through three-month mentorship programmes led by a Konsileo broker with expertise in a specific area, such as business development and digital lead generation.

Every Konsileo broker has a coach and none have a line manager. As peers, brokers take the initiative on when and how to team up on client work.

”We invite brokers to take the lead on their own learning journeys by defining and clarifying the challenges they’re facing and the opportunities they want to take advantage of,” Rhodes said.

“In turn, we know that an organisation that embraces constant learning will become stronger, which helps Konsileo deliver on its promise to clients to protect their business properly.”
