    Nutrition for Career Success (Ep 232)

    Nutrition for Career Success (Ep 232)

    Jessica Spendlove is a dietitian who specializes in optimizing performance through nutrition. Her work reveals a critical yet often overlooked aspect of professional success: that our diet is not just fuel for our bodies but a key driver of our cognitive capabilities and overall performance in the high-stakes corporate world. And not just our diet: She also wants us to know that exercise, sleep, and the way we treat our body and mind matter.
    Jessica's insights present a refreshing narrative, shifting the focus of job search from mere “skill and experience” to include the fundamental and holistic role of wellbeing and nutrition in professional excellence. Yet, we often neglect our diet and well-being during our demanding life and work. However, for ambitious professionals, understanding the significant role of diet could be the catalyst for achieving new heights in their careers.

Careers expert

Renata is a careers expert!

I have had personal experience as a client of Renata’s; she made the transition into job hunting after so long so easy, and she was so personable.

The time she took with me was so valuable, I was able to reframe my value with her help to realise that the strengths I had accumulated through my professional career are able to translate to career options I never thought about.

Renata helped me understand my worth in a professional setting and made me realise that it’s okay to be a human.
I cannot thank her enough.
