Weekly dose of top-notch thought leadership

From the very first episode with Rohan Dredge (which was recorded as a LinkedIn Live session) Shane excels in leading thought provoking and insightful conversations on mindfully curated topics. His address book is seemingly full of incredible, inspiring and uplifting people and he is doing a great job of getting them to join him on air. Would have given it 6 stars if it was a options
