Since launching in 2015, Superscript has earned an enviable reputation as major disruptors in the traditionally risk-averse world of business insurance.

Steve Noss, our Head of Creative, sat down to chat to Cam about the appetite for disruption at the heart of Superscript’s story, everything he’s learnt along the way, and what the dazzlingly bright future holds for the fast-growing team.

The next chapter in Cooper Parry’s ongoing, never-ending celebration of female leaders and entrepreneurs is here.
This time, Steve Whittle is joined by Abi Bown, Linda Marston-Weston and Elisa Howe. By title, they’re our Chief Growth Officer, Transaction Tax Partner, and Audit Director respectively. But really, their roles at Cooper Parry are about much more than that.
Born from their own experiences of becoming female leaders and getting involved in a wide range of diversity initiatives, the trio’s ideas on how to level the playing field for everyone (not just women), get people talking and build a more diverse, successful business and society shine through in this chat.
Of course, we’re partial, but it’s a brilliant listen. Enjoy.

Next up, we’ve been chatting to James Piper, CIO at Ecosurety – a B Corp Certified compliance scheme that helps household names like Kellogg’s, innocent and Lush reduce packaging, minimise waste and recycle materials effectively.
On top of being a passionate environmentalist and “rubbish geek”, James is also the author of a rubbish book – “The Rubbish Book”, in fact – which tells people how to properly recycle in their homes. Spoiler: can crushers, bottle top removers, you’ve been doing things wrong this whole time.
An eye-opening episode for anyone interested in looking after our planet. And if you’re reading this, we hope that’s you.
