    A strong backbone and a warm heart | Helen Gillett

    A strong backbone and a warm heart | Helen Gillett

    Helen Gillett might be a leader but she’s also a genuine team player. You will find her leading on strategy but you also might find her stacking the dishwasher while chatting to a new member of staff! She believes leaders need to connect by foregoing any kind of superiority: employees should be supported beyond their work lives, with leaders displaying a vulnerability about their own challenges too.Helen is passionate about inclusion and belonging using all voices in the business to advocate for change. However, she recognises that as a leader she was complacent about race and equity in the workplace. She now commits to taking bolder action and being a true ally. She is empathetic, kind and has high expectations of others. Expect someone who isn't afraid to lean in, confront her own challenges and lead for the greater good.

    Democracy in action at work | Tom Tapper

    Democracy in action at work | Tom Tapper

    Tom knows that the kind of clients and projects they take on makes his marketing agency’s life hard. He isn’t interested in them feeding the latest fad. Instead, his agency named, ‘Nice and Serious’, provides a platform for organisations with a genuine intention for making a difference. He likes to ask ‘Is this work good for the planet?’. They only service this cause-based work, be it a charity or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project for a corporate. Their market is niche and unpredictable.Perhaps, what makes Nice and Serious so special as an agency is the democratic power employees have in the decision-making around client projects and what work they take on. They use a system called ‘The Moral Compass’ to empower employees to decide what work is ‘responsible enough’. This process (co-created by the staff) is essential to employees' commitment to Nice and Serious. Hear more about this and Tom’s dedication to responsible work with a collective feel.

    Scaling social impact to the size of a planet | Daniel Hulme

    Daniel isn’t joking when he talks about scaling impact to the size of a planet. He’s spent the last two years thinking about Satalia’s purpose and crafting the best possible values for humanity. He’s studied religious texts as well as great philosophers to inform his leadership. He’s developed a company that has no managers and no KPIs. He describes Satalia as a ‘swarm-like’ organisation.You might think this sounds like chaos. Well, no, not according to Daniel.He leads by enabling people, facilitating the company to be agile in a changing environment and developing a culture that preserves employees’ dignity, giving them the right balance between authority and accountability. He’s completely committed to a continuous journey of improvement.

    Undeniable positivity and celebrating individuality | June Cory

    From humble beginnings growing up on a council estate, straight-talking, down-to-earth June Cory did well at school and turned to advertising sales for her career. She quickly realised her passion for people and has sought to improve her leadership capabilities through high expectations and a kind heart. She employs five apprentices in her small advertising business, MyMustard, whom she nurtures while actively challenging them to do the things that they might perceive as ‘terrifying’.As a small business owner, she doesn’t ‘hang on’ to employees. She recognises they may want to move onwards and upwards – she encourages their ambition and gets them to buckle up for the ride while they’re with her. Her undeniable belief in others, her grounded attitude and her use of visualisation makes an inspiring person to talk to.
