    Building Inclusion As A Strategy For Business Success

    I am delighted to be beaming in a dynamic leader,  United Kingdom, Mrs. Catherine Hamilton, an author, and entrepreneur  and dynamic mom. Catherine works across the business sectors designing and facilitating learning interventions to enable sustainable behavioural change. With over 20 years in the oil and gas industry initially, she has significant experience of working as an internal consultant on developing diversity and inclusion strategies, local and global interventions, raising awareness and understanding of dignity at work and the impact of our behaviours. 
    The move from Head of Inclusion & Diversity at National Grid to a freelancer, has enabled Catherine to broaden her client base over the last 11 years, whilst deepening her focus on inclusion, and particularly around bias and inappropriate workplace behaviours. Catherine bases her development ideas on real scenarios and combines this with innovative learning solutions to provide accessible and memorable learning whilst meeting personal and business needs. 
    Catherine is passionate about developing others and supporting them to become more aware of their own behaviours and the impact this has on others, through both 1:1 coaching and group workshops. Catherine has an honours degree in Sociology, an NVQ IV in Learning & Development and a Business Coaching Diploma. She is MBTI and SDI trained and an Executive coach for the senior civil service. 


    In this episode we discussed her big career pivots juggling her top job with family, her leadership pivots and her love for teaching inclusion. We had a great teachable moment where she described how make an organization more inclusive in business from the beginning. Of course had some fun moments discussing self-care as well as all that jazz in life that make it so exciting!

@livewithirenia dives in a little deeper into the story behind each person interviewed.

Love @livewithirenia; she has a way to have an interview flow and naturally dives in deeper into the story behind the story and gets the tidbits, and the listener may get tips and some insight to enlighten them on their own journey.

Continue with the great work!

This was a great episode! It was so interesting to learn about Adela’s story! Having lived in several countries, I could really appreciate her starting from scratch in a new country and how she never gave up but continued with her pathway. I am super appreciative that she is planning to inspire 1000 women in 2020! That is really awesome! Thank you for the great conversation!
