26th July 2019

This month we caught up with Lesley Maxwell, Business Development Executive at Just Travel.

In a short sentence, tell us what you do in your current role? 

I work in Just Travel Cover’s Broker Support Team, and as a Business Development Executive my main role is to source new partners and work closely with existing partners right from the initial set up of an agency and training, through to day-to-day servicing.

What did you want to be when you were growing up? 

I always wanted to do something travel related, I imagined I’d be jetting around the world.  I didn’t expect Travel Insurance to be the Travel related career I had hoped for as a kid but I suppose it is close enough!

What characteristic do you most admire in others? 

Caring characters who spread a bit of kindness and positivity.  Good manners, a smile and a kind word can make someone’s day and it really takes no effort.

What's the most important lesson you've learned in the last year? 

The importance of being brave and worrying less about the consequences.

What super power would you like to have?  

Teleportation…on a beach somewhere with a click of a finger!

What is one thing that annoys you the most?  

Chronic moaners with undue negativity.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three possessions would you want with you? 

Vast amounts of good food, good booze and a good music playlist.

Which celebrity do you get mistaken for? 

Cheryl Cole...sadly for me this is not based on looks and only ever over the phone down to the Geordie accent!

Past or present which five guests would you invite to your dream dinner party? 

  • Freddie Mercury
  • David Bowie
  • Stevie Nicks
  • George Michael
  • Hugh Jackman

Karaoke will follow after dinner!

Finally why should brokers consider using Just Travel Cover?  

We will be able to provide a solution that works for you, whether Travel is only a small portion of your business or if it is your main focus.  Our system makes it incredibly easy to access our large range of policies so you can cater for the majority of leisure risks and we also provide fulfilment options for brokers who do not wish to deal with travel themselves. Our dedicated Broker Support Team have decades of experience in the insurance industry so we know exactly what is important to you.  We really do pride ourselves on the service and relationships we have with our partners and we receive excellent feedback from our current partners.  You’ll love what you see and so will your clients!
