Episode 8: Ciara Conway, Group Chief Architect at Aviva

Published on: 15th August, 2022

Behind the Desk with Mark Thomas is back, and my first guest is Ciara Conway, Group Chief Architect at Aviva. Ciara has an infectious personality, and I am thrilled to have her join me to kick off season two of the podcast.  

We had a great conversation and covered a lot of ground including her journey into technology, which is an unusual one, the challenges she's faced around being a female in a very male dominated sector and her views on gender diversity and the progress we’re making within the insurance and technology space.

Her views on where the sector is headed are spot on and she is passionate about leaving a legacy, by removing legacy tech, and walks us through her ambitious plans for Aviva's future.  

Let’s get behind the desk with Ciara Conway.
