Women in Tech Lead

Faye is a people-focused business leader who is on a mission to transform how we think about organisational productivity, purpose, profit and people’s happiness so we can move beyond insular focus on shareholder value. As COO for Vanti, one of the UK’s only Master System Integrators with a Smart Building reference site, Faye is currently working with the best and brightest minds to collaboratively imagine and engineer technology solutions that positively change the way people live, learn and work. As Chair of Birmingham’s ‘Women in Tech’ working group, she is a key advocate for encouraging women and girls to enter careers in Technology. “Helping to drive a more diverse technology workforce in the Midlands, is a huge passion of mine. It’s not about employers having a ‘tick-box’ mindset to diversity, but truly appreciating that ‘diversity in thought’ is far more important and key to business innovation and people growth. “However, unless we break down some of the barriers and proactively work to improve and widen the pools we can choose our talent from, things will only remain the same. To be able to work with like-minded, determined people helping to drive real change, is something I’m incredibly proud of – I can’t wait to look back in a few years’ time and see just how many women and people we’ve inspired to join our industry!”

I am disruptive insurance influencer, developer and mould breaker with experience in Commercial Underwriting and Broking. I am a confident public speaker and seminar leader, with a detailed knowledge of Cyber Risks and emerging tech trends. I achieved a position as 2015 Insurance Age Broker Apprentice finalist. I believe in change, change in the way insurance advice is delivered and the how the industry is perceived by the general public. I strive to disrupt the market to allow insurance to thrive as no longer a necessary evil, but a positive, supporting business choice.
