The Link network moves ‘Up North’

Anyone who works in the north of England is sure to have felt the same frustration that many of us do. An invite lands in your inbox, the event sounds great, and when you look at the address – of course it’s in London.
Now LINK, the LGBT Insurance Network, is trying to tackle that, with the development of Link Up North. This inter-organisational network is open to insurance providers, banks, brokers and any professional services industry that works with financial services providers.
The first Link Up North event in May focused on LGBT networks, and gave companies a chance to share best practice, discuss challenges and think about solutions. The expert panel, made up of Jo Alderson from Pinsent Masons, Simon Farrell-Roberts from Lloyds Banking Group and Dayna Fawkes from Aviva, talked about their own networks before opening up for Q&A from the audience.
