The Beazley Academy brings together all of the educational programs offered by Beazley to brokers and clients around the world. These include programs qualifying for continuing education credits as well as broker and client retreats featuring Beazley speakers and external experts. As well as face-to-face events, we offer a variety of webinars and will be producing a podcast series (Risk in the Digital Age) in the months ahead.
The academy builds on a long tradition of education and training offered by Beazley's underwriters and claims professionals. In 2011, Beazley founded the Andrew Beazley Broker Academy at Lloyd's (now the Lloyd's Broker Academy). As a company we are committed to sharing our knowledge and proprietary data with clients and brokers to enhance their risk preparedness.
Most of our events are by invitation only. If you are a Beazley broker or client, please contact us to learn about existing Beazley programs that may be relevant to your needs or to suggest new topics you would like us to consider. Our podcast series will be publicly available through this site and on the iTunes platform.
