When Ansvar committed to support our insureds with best practice safeguarding risk solutions, we sought the best of help and advice.

Hetty has been that source for us. What a coup it has been to have Australia’s leading expert work with our company to guide us and to lead thinking, develop resources and support our staff, brokers and clients. Hetty’s time with us concludes today (9/3/2022).

Hetty came on board for 8 months – bringing the passion that has defined her commitment and recognition to making Australia the safest place to raise a child and protect vulnerable people and reputation as a fearless influencer. For our risk team, she changed our thinking, developed our knowledge, guided our resources and built what I believe is the best “Safeguarding Self-Assessment” for clients anywhere on the market. Nothing else like it.
Above all, Hetty brought clarity of purpose – a reality as to why we are doing this and the great role an insurance company can play in making organisations take prevention of sexual abuse seriously. Without insurance, an organisation can become unviable. With better risk management and awareness, they can contribute to reducing the risk of abuse to its lowest level. Everyone is better off. Particularly our most vulnerable; something that goes to the heart of the Ansvar and the Benefact mission.
Please join me in wishing Hetty well. I feel it won’t be the last we see of her, I certainly will be calling occasionally on her wisdom and knowledge! We will miss her.
On behalf of the whole Ansvar family, thank you Hetty!
