    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    This week’s guest is Justin Spooner, the co-founder of the London-based consultancy, Unthinkable Digital.

    Justin knows more and thinks more than anyone I know about how people learn and how they connect.

    In a world that has moved mostly online, that understanding has become essential not only for our business success but for our humanity - and increasingly for our sanity.

    What do you need your people to understand and what problems do you need them to solve?

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    This week’s guest is Frank Spotnitz, the Founder and CEO of Big Light Productions, a London and Paris-based production company.

    I’m fascinated by the role that stories play in shaping society. They affect our personal lives, our politics and our businesses.

    And I’ve never met an impactful leader who couldn’t tell a compelling story - about their vision for the future and why it matters.

    What’s your story? And how do you tell it?

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    Nicki Sprinz is the Managing Director of B-corp digital product studio ustwo.

    What makes her story even more compelling is what she has overcome in her personal life long before her professional life began.

    As a leader, she has brought gender pay equity to her business. A challenge at which most businesses are absurdly still failing. And she brings relentlessly positive and upbeat energy with her.

    They are a very modern business, built to match marketing talent with opportunity in dynamic and flexible ways. If you were going to design a business to confront the challenges of these two viruses, WeAreRosie would be a pretty good blueprint to follow. 

    They are built to unlock the potential of people.

    Marcel Marcondes is the U.S. Chief Marketing Officer for Anheuser-Busch.

    And about the need to show up as a human being first and a leader second. 

    We also talked about why he’s listening now, more than ever. And then turning what he hears into action.

Essential listening

Full of insight and practical advice. A must-listen for anyone leading or who wants to lead a creative organisation.

Essential

“Fearless” somehow manages to be diverse in narrative but reassuringly constant in quality week after week. Every listen provides another lesson, perspective or insight that motivates and inspires. And not a week goes by where I don’t shamelessly ‘borrow’ a quote, replay an anecdote that echoed or challenged my own experience, or simply tell someone “you have to listen to this”.

It’s the only podcast I listen to end to end every week.
