In the December issue of The Players’ Room, players from London based clubs were the first of our members to visit Aviva’s head office in a joint venture with The RPA. Since then Quins’ Seb Stegmann and London Irish’s Kieran Roche have signed up to the Aviva Insight Programme which gives them access to their own business mentor and the benefit of their tremendous experience and expertise.

So boys, you were both part of the first group of players to visit Aviva, were you impressed with the set-up?

Seb: “It was really good for me, obviously I had a general idea of what Aviva do but it was a good chance to learn more about the ins and outs of how the business really works. It was great to find out what services they have to offer for the public and private sector and the processes that go into things like underwriting insurance.
