Hélène Stanway - Expert Spotlight

What is your role now since leaving corporate life? 

I sit at the intersection of operations, emerging technology and data in the Lloyd’s and London Market. That unique combination enables me to help organisations create future focused operating models using new technology and data solutions, including sensor technology to make more data-informed decisions that (most importantly) supports the human. 

How long have you been an Expert of Camelot?  

2 years.

Have you been a panel expert on any Road Tests? 

I have supported 3 road tests.  I enjoy being able to help organisations refine their pitch and go-to-market offerings by providing honest feedback that is not corporately dressed up.  This transparency is far more helpful to organisations as they make their way in the insurance market.

Area of expertise:-

Underwriting Operations and Emerging Technology - Internet of Things and sensor technology, London Market transformation and Blueprint Two

Highest/proudest most recognisable previous role:-

VP, Global Head of Technology Innovation at AXA XL

How long have you been doing this subject/area?

Because I’ve had roles across several different functions, I’ve got a good end-to-end experience of all parts on the insurer value chain - 29 years and counting!

What is your company name?  

HMLS Consulting Ltd

What is your LinkedIn profile URL?

Please can you provide some examples of recent projects/professional high points that you’ve worked on? 

  • Gap analysis of three technology solutions who want to enter the Lloyd’s Market & Blueprint Two

  • Supporting a corporate partner in their Blueprint Two journey

  • Helping Brokers and Carriers navigate Blueprint Two

  • Driving the adoption of IoT in the Commercial Property market

  • Market scan & supporting the discovery phase for a new Outwards Reinsurance application

  • Market research into the data & technology pain points for delegated arrangements

What is your unique selling point? What makes your business approach unique? 

I’m a continuous learner and a proud generalist so I know a little about a lot of subjects! That means that I can strategically assess operating models and technology solutions across people, process and data – how these connect, where the gaps are and how to transform.

Do you have a favourite quote? 

Never change to be accepted by others.  Stay weird.

And… Last but not least, how does being an expert of Camelot help you/or add value to your business?

When you leave corporate life, you no longer have a ‘work family’, Camelot brings that work family and a network of people you can ask for help and that support you.  We all lift each other up which is important when you’re all independent.
