    #KatieTalks with Richard Yetsenga, Chief Economist and Head of Research at ANZ Bank

    My guest today is Richard Yetsenga Chief Economist and Head of Research at ANZ Bank.  This was always going to be interesting, throw into the mix a slightly tumultuous global pandemic and voila you have a great conversation.
    We discuss Richard’s approach* to using Twitter in terms of the way that he publishes and influences dialogue. It was also interesting to hear that Twitter has been a key source of information for him as Covid19 evolves at a rapid pace. Central to this discussion is the importance of trustworthy content and we talk in detail about this critical issue. 
    The ability to stay informed about news across the globe is vital for Richard and it’s always interesting to hear how influential time poor people do this. We discuss ‘reading aggressively’ and his go to publications.
    We also talk about the fact the Alanis Morissette has a lot to answer following a study that Richard describes which charts song lyrics from the 1990s to now show a steady move from focus on love to more around hate. Isn’t it ironic?!

    #KatieTalks with Bronwyn Bate, Founder of social enterprise Mettle Women

    #KatieTalks with Bronwyn Bate, Founder of social enterprise Mettle Women

    My guest today is Bronwyn Bate - CEO and Founder of Mettle Women, a social entrepreneur turning empathy into action.   This is a remarkable influencer story.  As a (former) court reporter Bronwyn met lots of inspiring women but realised that when domestic violence victims don't have financial independence, 52% who have escaped dangerous situations return to the system. 
    Bronwyn made good use of her communications background and recognised that an important mechanism for success would be to get women into work.  And so harnessing the power of a conscious consumer, she founded Mettle Women Inc a social enterprise which creates sustainable employment paths for survivors of domestic and family violence. 
    I came across Mettle on Twitter in the lead up to Christmas and loved the concept, including the fact that many of their products are made by small local Western Australian organisations.
    The ingenuity of Mettle Gifts has been recognised by Marie Claire magazine, whose April Australian edition will feature Bronwyn and her team.  You can read more and shop at https://www.mettlegifts.com/

    #KatieTalks with Graeme Bowman, Freeing our Planet from Patriarchy

    #KatieTalks with Graeme Bowman, Freeing our Planet from Patriarchy

    Katie Talks is back for 2020 and my first guest is an interesting one.  Graeme Bowman is well known as a keynote speaker, writer, corporate comedian and hoax speaker.  Graeme uses his 34 years' experience in the arts to raise consciousness around the ways that systematic patriarchy plays out within male dominated organisations. 
    You may wonder what a self-professed 'old straight white male' can do about this. I did too, listen for some fresh perspectives.

    #KatieTalks with Stella Voules, Organisational Psychologist

    #KatieTalks with Stella Voules, Organisational Psychologist

    This episode of #KatieTalks is an interview with organisational psychologist, aka Cultural Change Whisperer, Board Capability advisor and beekeeper Stella Voules.
     
    If you're interested in culture this is the podcast for you.
     
    We cover a range of fascinating topics including the way that leadership has evolved over the last decade, with a significant increase in access (to leaders) and transparency.  Stella talks about how this started in Silicon Valley with a firm antiestablishment movement which can be witnessed well beyond the corporate world.  We talk about how this as created a shift in power dynamics, with employees having more of a voice than ever before.We explore the opportunities in all this for leaders and employers, citing Edelman Trust Barometer findings that people trust their employer much more than government or the media. 
     
    We hear why Stella is such a big fan of futurists and about highly innovative organisations that employ them, without a position description and give them three months to explore the organisation and determine where they can have the most impact!
     
    Another interesting topic is why when founding JOST, Stella and her business partner ignored advice that they appoint one CEO rather than both act as co-CEO, and why this is proving to be a highly successful approach.

    #KatieTalks with Katherine Mountford (once again), Specialist Marketing and Business Development Recruiter

    #KatieTalks with Katherine Mountford (once again), Specialist Marketing and Business Development Recruiter

    This episode of #KatieTalks delves into some interesting themes with Recruiter, Coach and Professional Services Trainer Katherine Mountford, including how pivotal LinkedIn should be in building one's personal brand and eminence.  We build on this theme exploring a recent blog that Katherine wrote after she interviewed a senior leader who said that they 'don't do digital'.  It elicited some pretty strong feedback on both sides,
    Katherine has a number of tips (six in fact) for professionals looking to move from one industry to another which is something that this interviewer recently did.
    We also explore the concept of a balanced life and Katherine talks us through her personal check list to manage energy levels and the demands of a new consultancy with her many other passions.
    This is an upbeat, interesting listen and you'll be sure to finish feeling ready to incorporate a few clever tips into the way that you work.

    #KatieTalks with story teller and content maestro Neil Glaser.

    #KatieTalks with story teller and content maestro Neil Glaser.

    On this episode of #KatieTalks is story teller and content maestro Neil Glaser. 
    We are living in an era when business is firmly changing its approach to creating content.  We are embracing a move away from enormous reports that senior leaders don't have time to read and embracing shorter, bite sized snackable, easy to consume.  In this new more client centric world I couldn't think of a better person to interview than Deloitte's Head of Editorial, industry speaker and former serial co-collaborator Neil Glaser.  
    Neil shares his top five tips for creating compelling content that will help you to improve your own writing, in whatever form that takes.  He also shares some interesting statistics including the fact that poor business writing costs around $400 billion dollar per annum.
    My favourite tip (a difficult choice) was to make every word count, Neil tells us that writers often have compulsion towards very lengthy content.  This was superbly illustrated by our narrator who tells of a bet that Ernest Hemmingway's friends placed as to who could write a cutting story in only 6 words:
    For sale, baby shoes, never worn. 
    You won’t be surprised to hear that Mr Hemmingway won.
