Welcome to the Howardco Leadership series where I explore the issues that impact organisations and businesses today particularly from the human perspective. Emerging from the challenges of Covid-19, a new kind of leadership has evolved which acknowledges change, understands the impact on people and inspires action towards new and redefined goals. In my work I have been privileged to meet some inspiring people who through this interview series openly share their experiences and tips on leading in the new world of work. I hope you enjoy the interviews.

Howardco with Mark Parry (Ron Finemore Transport)
Join me for this month’s inspiring interview on Leadership where I speak with Mark Parry, Managing Director of Ron Finemore Transport.
One industry that continues to be pivotal in our Covid recovery is the transport and logistics sector. Especially during lockdown when we have relied on our supermarket shelves being stocked and fuel for our cars. Mark Parry describes the challenges of dealing with a rapidly changing landscape while balancing the needs of stakeholders and providing direction and support to the many men and women who drive the trucks and plan the deliveries for this busy regional carrier. Be inspired by Mark’s clarity of thought and positive outlook and, especially listen in for his advice for new and aspiring leaders on dealing with complexity and developing your own leadership style. I hope you enjoy it.
Howardco with Jen McVeity (Seven Steps to Writing Success)
Join me for this month’s interview on Leadership where I speak with Jen McVeity, Founder and Owner of Seven Steps to Writing Success.
Be inspired by Jen’s humour, positivity and resilience as she explains how she navigated her team’s journey through lockdowns in 2020 and how she has pivoted her business model to embrace new opportunities in 2021. What do you do when your business model gets flipped by events outside your control and when 70% of your business disappears overnight?
Listen to how Jen used agility and empathy to inspire and lead her amazing team on this journey of unprecedented change. I hope you enjoy it.
