An Interview with Stephen Coulson

What do you do for Atlas Life?

I am one of the founders of the business and have day to day responsibility for Head Office operations.

What do you love most about your role?

Talking to advisers and their clients about the importance of life cover. Interestingly, their appears to be a renaissance gathering pace with more and more high net worth clients looking to include protection products within their personal estate planning.

How has your business adapted in light of the current COVID-19 crisis?

We have been fortunate that we have embraced a 'work from home' culture for a number of years so it was relatively easy for our employees to make the transition. Despite the pandemic, our business has continued to grow nicely and revenues are up on the same time last year. However, like everyone, we remain extremely cautious about the next 12-24 months ahead.

Why did you join PCD?

The membership matches our distributor profile and we like the way that David and his team have created such a robust global network in just a short space of time.

Have you attended a PCD webinar? What did you think?

Yes, there were very informative and the speakers all knew their subjects.

My top tip for working from home is...

Plan your day as if you were going to the office, do all the normal things you would do and don't shout at the kids!

On a weekend, I am most likely found...

Enjoying family time and thinking about the week ahead.
