5 apps to improve your communication

Looking to save time and get the right message out there? Here are 5 of our favourite apps which can improve your communication. 


Slack unifies your entire team’s communications so that you can make your workflow more efficient. All the apps you could need have been integrated so they can all be accessed within the slack messaging service. It allows you to search, find your files, calls, messages and colleges all in the one place. The most useful features include group chat, magic search, unlimited users, file sharing, screen sharing and instant messaging. Best of all it is free for as many users as you want, for as long as you want.


You can now send out automated emails using MailChimp to save yourself time and hassle. You’ll be able to send beautiful emails as there are a lot more options for adding images and changing up the text. You can also connect MailChimp to connect your e-commerce store, advertise, and build your brand. Best of all, it is forever free for up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month.

Google Docs

Google Docs can also help your business work smarter instead of relying on the Mircosoft suite of Word, Powerpoint and Excel. Small businesses can use Google Docs for free or you can upgrade to benefit from additional features for $5 per user a month. All you need is a Google account and internet access for you to be able to begin to create, store and most importantly, share the documents you have created. The power of moving your documents, presentations and spreadsheets to the cloud is versatility and flexibility.


Frustrated by emails bouncing back because they are too large or trying to run around and find a memory stick? WeTransfer is a cloud based software which allows you to transfer your large files. It is the simplest way to send your files around the world in a few quick steps. It allows you to share large files up to 2GB for free.


Droplr allows you to snag images or videos from your screen and have them share-ready in a few quick clicks and seconds. You can also markup your screenshots and tag them so it is easier to find what you are looking for. You’ll love Droplr if you are doing a lot of file sharing, screen previewing, screenshots, annotations and screen recordings.

Our unique insurance market has an unrivalled concentration of specialist underwriting expertise and every day, more than 50 leading insurance companies, over 200 registered Lloyd’s brokers and a global network of over 4,000 local coverholders operate in and bring business to the Lloyd’s market.

The business written at Lloyd’s is brought to specialist syndicates, who price and underwrite risk, via brokers and coverholders. Much of the capital available at Lloyd’s is provided on a subscription basis – where Lloyd's underwriters join together as syndicates and where syndicates join together to underwrite risks and programmes. This kind of collaboration, combined with the choice, flexibility and financial certainty of the market, makes Lloyd’s the world’s leading insurance platform.

But in an unpredictable global climate, Lloyd’s underwriters must also rely on their experience and industry knowledge to cast light into the darkness ahead. Behind the Lloyd’s market is the Lloyd’s Corporation, not itself an insurer but an independent organisation and regulator that acts to protect and maintain the market's reputation and provides services and original research, reports and analysis to the industry’s knowledge base.
