Zurich Financial Services is the UK’s largest unit linked life assurance, pension and investment organisation.

The company prides itself on good communications – a factor that led to its nomination as one of the best three companies to work for in the UK.
Sandy Leitch, Chief Executive, has been with the company since its launch as Hambro Life in 1974. In 1996 Sandy Leitch was appointed Chairman of British American Financial Services and in 2000 became Chief Executive of Zurich Financial Services.

It was his promotion to Chief Executive of Allied Dunbar in 1993 that prompted Sandy Leitch to contact spoken communications consultancy Aziz Corporate.

Although already an accomplished communicator, his new position entailed a heavy schedule of speaking engagements to audiences of all sizes around the country, culminating in an annual presentation to over 2,000 top achievers in the massive auditorium of Wembley Conference Centre.

“Communicating well from the top of an
organisation is crucial. It sets the direction, tone and style and it gives a key competitive edge.”
