The Inner Chief

Dec 9, 2021

In this Best of Series episode, we hear from Trevor Matthews on how a leader is a dealer in hope, building a track record and thinking globally, acting locally.


We interviewed Trevor back in September 2017 when he told us the story of his remarkable career from Actuary to CEO and Chair of some of the world’s biggest insurance companies.

He is also the Former MD/CEO of Legal & General Australia, Manulife Canada and Japan, and has since gone on to become a trusted advisor, Chair and Board member at companies like Bupa, CMC Markets APAC, State Insurance Regulatory Authority and Preferred Global Health.

In short, Trevor is an elite Chief and we were privileged that he came on the show.

In this episode, you’re going to hear Trevor talk about:

  • Why a leader is a dealer in hope;
  • How he got new roles as a result of building a track record of solving problems;
  • How he brought ideas from around the world and implemented them locally; and
  • Earning your seat at the Executive Team’s table.
