    #8: Talking Policing and Discrimination with Pushpa Guild

    #8: Talking Policing and Discrimination with Pushpa Guild

    As a police officer you need to interact with people with fairness and integrity, whether that’s diffusing a hostile situation on the streets, interviewing a suspect, or managing a team of officers investigating complex major crimes. But the treatment of minority staff within the force hasn’t always reflected the values and standards that the police are supposed to uphold. In this episode I’m joined by Pushpa Guild, a retired police officer who served on the Bedfordshire police force for over 30 years. We talk about Pushpa’s life growing up as a first-generation British Asian woman, her experiences in the force as she worked her way to a senior investigating officer, and how the police are tackling diversity and unconscious bias within the force.

    We talk about some of Pushpa's investigations (including discussions around murder, dismemberment and rape) between 38:23 and 41:40.

    #7: Talking Human Sex Trafficking with Shihoko Fujiwara

    #7: Talking Human Sex Trafficking with Shihoko Fujiwara

    The difference between Japanese and Western culture extends way beyond language. Japanese values, landscapes and cuisine are what make it an amazing place to visit. But Japan has a dark problem which its policies and people have failed to tackle- human sexual exploitation. I’m joined by Shihoko Fujiwara, the founder and former Director of Lighthouse, a non-profit organisation focussed on helping the victims of human sex trafficking in Japan. We talk about how she became an activist in human sex trafficking, her perspectives on the two different cultures having lived in Japan and the US, and what is being done to stop exploitation of vulnerable people in Japan.

    #6: Talking Life Science Marketing with Chris Conner

    #6: Talking Life Science Marketing with Chris Conner

    When you think life science marketing you’ll probably think of LinkedIn, Twitter and white papers. But with the variety of innovative platforms and the pace of technology development, there’s so much more that life science companies could be doing to understand their audience and boost sales. In this episode I’m joined by Chris Conner, the founder and host of the Life Science Marketing Radio podcast. We talk about his journey into podcasting from corporate communications, how he thinks life science companies can better use digital platforms and the power of audio content when it’s used effectively.

    #5: Talking Science Activism with Mike Galsworthy

    #5: Talking Science Activism with Mike Galsworthy

    The UK has an incredible science landscape, but in the wake of Brexit how do we keep our world-class status and not lose access to all the amazing networks and technologies we’ve built in the EU? After all, collaboration and teamwork have been fundamental to the amazing scientific discoveries we benefit from. In this episode I’m joined by Mike Galsworthy, a scientist turned political activist in the wake of the Brexit referendum. We talk about Mike’s career, the motivations behind his activism, and what he thinks about science, social media and the post Brexit landscape.

    #3: Talking Business and Politics with Jimmy McLoughlin

    #3: Talking Business and Politics with Jimmy McLoughlin

    At their core, both business and politics want to bring value to their customers whether it’s consumers or the public. So keeping the government up to date about new innovations and the effects of policy change on the economy is essential in delivering good public service. In this episode I’m joined by Jimmy McLoughlin, who was a special advisor on technology and entrepreneurship to the Prime Minister, and is now the host of a podcast focusing on jobs of the future. We talk about Jimmy’s career and experiences in Downing Street, the effects of Brexit on British businesses and entrepreneurship, and of course, his podcast Jimmy’s Jobs of the Future.

    Introducing... Pros and Comms

    Introducing... Pros and Comms

    Communication is essentially story telling, so on Pros and Comms I talk to professionals about their stories and how they've learnt to get a message across to their audience. Because we could all do a little better at communicating these days. And when it comes to business, there's so many things you can learn from other people.
