What our trainees have to say

  • After years of hearing about data in the Kenyan insurance market and the opportunities around the data, this training offered a practical approach to leveraging the data. A wealth of knowledge has been gained over the last two days and it was a privilege to be a part of the experience. The trainers created a holistic learning environment that serves to drive change in an industry that has for so long been slow to progress. The future is truly bright! Thank you, AB Consultants

  • The two-day training has provided valuable insights on Insurance technology, market research, product design and data science. From a regulatory perspective, the knowledge and experience gained will inform a shift in IRA’s approach to insurance penetration in Kenya through the application of more modern and scientific methods. The trainers and participants were a vibrant lot and I enjoyed the two days. Thank you, AB Consultants! Keep it up!
