Great advice and human stories

I’m so happy to have found this podcast (through Sue Black’s LinkedIn post).
The interviews are full of great advice and tips, and it’s lovely to hear such human stories.

Insightful and accessible

I really like the style of these interviews, not pretentious, very down to earth and practical. I just started listening but will happily go through the entire series.

This is pure gold

Leaders plus Podcasts are always high value.
This is a wonderful, honest conversation around leadership in crisis, being a caring mum and still managing to be an all round nice person. Very moving, completely inspiring.
