Welcome to this week’s second episode of The Mindset Mentor Meets Podcast which hears Angela interviewing Samantha Grierson, Transformation & Strategy Director and published Playwrite.
About our guestSamantha is an experienced transformation and strategy director and has held roles at Travis Perkins, Carillion and Homeserve. She proudly supports LBGT+ as one of the Outstanding 100 LBGT+ Execs and having recently been diagnosed with adult autism she is an advocate for Autism Awareness too. Her published play, Crocodile is based largely on her experiences of living with autism and is destined for greatness.
About this show Samantha shares her experience of growing up and moving into adulthood feeling different, not only because she knew she was gay but for a reason she couldn't put her finger on. It was only later when she was diagnosed with autism that everything fell into place. She generously shares her proudest moments including how she recently attended a writing retreat and produced a script for a play which beautifully articulates the challenges she has faced. She goes on to share the initial fear and trepidation she felt in wanting to be authentic and share her sexuality at work and her ultimate joy at being able to support and champion LBGT+ as a senior leader. An uplifting and inspiring half hour.
