Strategic Partners

Strategic Partners are key to the Affinity Initiative model. We are working with companies that are markets leaders, differentiators and experts in their chosen sphere. In some instances they are complimentary; Vipr and DA Strategy or Netcall, and a number of our Solutions partners. In other instances they are specialists as with TrACK. Importantly all of our partners have a common trait; that of being focussed, professional and proven.

TrACK Mentoring and Coaching logo Blue

TrACK Mentoring & Consulting has two distinct, yet complimentary services, and aims to deliver “exactly what it says”. Established to initially provide direct one-to-one mentoring to individuals at important times in their careers – to then help them ‘track’ their own development needs and to get clarity around their futures and the decisions they make to realise their potential and aspirations. This is beneficial to organisations who are looking to invest in their ‘top talent’ by supporting the development needs and growth of their key employees and supports their retention plans. Secondly, to help businesses, in or around the insurance segment, stay on ‘track’ to maximise their initiatives and capabilities by accessing our consultants experience, knowledge and networks. In both cases, we help to guide and provide both individuals and firms with some insights and support by accessing our many years of experience in the industry and our unique perspectives.
