"In our mature and highly competitive UK Insurance market, firms have much to gain from hiring and developing neurodivergent  colleagues as a firm’s ability to innovate, create and “think outside the box” requires not simply a wide spectrum of skills but also, and importantly -  a diversity of thought, perspectives and experiences that speak to a wider range of customer needs, pain points and potential solutions." 

Johnny Timpson
Prime Minister's Champion Group member.

"For me, GAIN is about creating a community where neurodiversity can be explored and positive actions be taken, which will benefit not only those who think differently but also their allies, teams, employers and the wider society."
