    Episode 16. Future Proofing Your Career

    “It's easier than ever for you to do those kind of experiments, so you can instead of deciding to launch a newsletter you can start writing on Medium and get feedback in terms of whether or not people are interested and I remember for myself I loved my job that was in venture capital and so at some point I was invited to join an Incubator, an angel investing fund, and I decided not to do it … I decided to just stay in my job and allocate a portion of my salary to investing in companies and I went on the advisory board for them instead of joining them as a partner”, Diana Wu David kindly shared with me on Episode 16 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Diana is a former Financial Times executive, author of Future Proof: Reinventing Work in an Age of Acceleration and an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School’s EMBA Global Asia. She started out her career working on high level strategy as a management consultant and as an assistant to Dr. Henry Kissinger.

    She works with global leaders, companies and boards to enhance their ability to adapt, contribute, collaborate and grow.  She has consulted with or spoken to clients including JP Morgan, AXA, Credit Suisse, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, the World Bank, Asia Development Bank, Expedia and Randstad.



    She is a futurist and writes about the future of work for publications including Fast Company, Inc and Thrive and speaks globally on the future of work, corporate governance and boards and East-West issues.


    It's always fun to chat with Diana and we had a great conversation talking about the following:


    Starting Her Career Working For Dr Henry Kissinger;


    Having An Experimentation Mindset;


    Reflecting And Learning From Every Job Move;


    Being Strategic With Your Career And Looking To The Future;

    Episode 15. Becoming Forever Employable

    Episode 15. Becoming Forever Employable

    "If I could figure out how to reclaim control over my career so instead of me pushing myself out into the market, if I could create a situation where I am attracting, I'm pulling opportunities towards me, well that would guarantee that no matter what came my way, whether I was 35 or 40 or 45 or whatever there was always an inbound stream of opportunities" Jeff Gothelf kindly shared this with me on Episode 15 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Jeff helps organisations build better products and executives build the cultures that build better products. He is the co-author of the award-winning book Lean UX and the Harvard Business Review Press book Sense & Respond.

    Jeff started his career as a designer working with the first companies to use the internet as a new communication, sales and service channel. He now works as a coach, consultant and keynote speaker helping companies bridge the gaps between business agility, digital transformation, product management and human-centred design.

    Most recently Jeff co-founded Sense & Respond Press, a publishing house for practical business books for busy executives. His most recent book, Forever Employable, was published in June 2020. He has also written Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking.


    In recent years, I have developed a keen interest in technology and it was great to chat with Jeff about that and other topics including:


    His Early Life As A Musician;


    Transitioning To Becoming A UX Designer;


    How “Enthusiastic Scepticism” Has Shaped his Career;


    Thinking Of Your Career As A Start Up;


    Noticing And Adapting To Industry Trends;


    The Five Steps and Qualities To Becoming Forever Employable;


    Self Confidence & Managing Imposter Syndrome;


    The Importance Of Execution & Taking Action;


    Why Story Telling Is So Important; and


    Creating A Routine.

    Episode 14. Thinking Creatively To Overcome Obstacles And Find Success

    Episode 14. Thinking Creatively To Overcome Obstacles And Find Success

    "You've got to think “well is this how I want to spend a significant portion of my life” because time is the one thing that we cannot replace … but there's just something in your gut that says this isn't right and you just have to keep taking the next step and the next step … and eventually hoping that all those steps will take you to a place where this is where I need to be and the experiences I've had in the past all lend themselves to me being successful in this moment in this time that I'm at now” Shola Kaye, kindly shared this great insight with me on Episode 14 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Shola Kaye is a multi award-winning speaker, specialising in communication, leadership and D.E.I (diversity, equity & inclusion). She is passionate about helping organisations create an atmosphere of belonging for their people and for those individuals, in turn, to have the skills needed to make their full contribution with powerful and effective communication. She does this through workshops and consulting.


    Shola has had an amazingly diverse career. After graduating from Cambridge University and Emory University, she worked for blue-chip corporates in the high pressure industries of investment banking and IT management consulting in New York and London.


    She then pursued her dream of performing as a Professional jazz and Motown singer, both internationally and throughout the UK. Whilst still performing, she started her business, which she has been running successfully for a number of years.


    She has performed for, or spoken in front of tens of thousands of people internationally. She has delivered for clients like American Express, Tate & Lyle and The United Nations, and been featured in or written for Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and the BBC.


    She is the author of two books “Big Talk, Small Talk” and “How to be a Diva at Public Speaking”.


    I first met Shola through the Toastmasters programme, although she was a  significantly more accomplished public speaker than me. Shola is a Distinguished Toast Master, the highest level you’re able to achieve.


    It was such a pleasure to talk with Shola and we discussed the following:


     


    Overcoming Adversity To Move From Teaching To Management Consulting;


    Exploring Change When You’re Not Satisfied;


    Life As A Management Consultant;


    Creating More Inclusive Meetings;


    Gaining Greater Self-Confidence;


    Following Her Childhood Dream To Become A Professional Singer;


    Managing Nervousness Before Speaking Or Performing;


    Developing Your Personal Brand And Managing Your Career;


    Becoming A Published Author;


    Preparing For and Story Telling In Interviews; and


    Communication Tips For Work.

    Episode 12. Work From The Inside Out

    Episode 12. Work From The Inside Out

    "There are ways that you can try to connect with somebody and let them feel seen and understood, it reminds me of something that Dale Carnegie said “be interested not interesting”, so take the focus off of yourself and show an interest in the other person but in a way where you are genuinely interested not just on the surface" Tammy Gooler Loeb kindly shared with me on Episode 12 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Tammy is an Executive and Career Coach, Speaker, Facilitator and the founder and host of the “Work From The Inside Out” podcast. She is passionate about working with clients to achieve growth and deeper satisfaction in their careers and work relationships.

    Tammy brings over 25 years of professional experience to her work and is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach by the Coaches Training Institute and a graduate of the Co-Active Space Leadership Program. She holds a B.A. in Psychology from Hampshire College and an MBA from Boston University.


    Prior to establishing her practice, Tammy held a variety of positions in mental health services, higher education administration, public policy analysis and fundraising. Her practical knowledge and experience in organizational and leadership development, workplace communications, and change management builds a relatable relationship with clients striving for higher performance results.


    Tammy is the author of a book also titled “Work From The Inside Out”, which will be published later in the year.


    It was a particular pleasure having Tammy on the show as she has been a great supporter and invited me on to her podcast shortly after we first met last year. I had a great time on her show and this helped push me to launch my podcaast in January and a YouTube Channel shortly afterwards.

    How Her Parents Influenced Her Life’s Work;

    Episode 11. White Belt Mentality: The Art Of Remaining An Eternal Student

    Episode 11. White Belt Mentality: The Art Of Remaining An Eternal Student

    "It’s no longer about just what you know, it’s about how you can keep learning, keep evolving because the world doesn’t stay still, the world keeps changing and it’s our ability to remain an eternal student, adopt that white belt mentality, that will help us navigate these uncertain times" Simon Alexander Ong kindly shared with me on Episode 11 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Everything that Simon does is built around inspiring people to see their world differently and igniting their imagination of what is truly possible so that they can unleash their deepest potential.

    From a young age, Simon has always been curious about learning and exploring the areas of personal fulfilment, human potential and organisational success. This curiosity was accelerated following his departure from the financial industry, in which he began his career in following graduation from the London School of Economics.

    He speaks at international events, conferences and corporate events that have included those organised by Google, London School Of Economics, Barclays UK, The Institute Of Directors, Virgin, O2, Salesforce, 10 Downing Street, Natwest, Enterprise Nation and Microsoft.

    As a life coach and business strategist, Simon also helps leaders, entrepreneurs, organisations and celebrities to transcend perceived limitations and experience extraordinary transformations through the power of insight, perspective and energy management.

    Simon's has been featured in a wide range of publications that include the The Financial Times, Women's Health, HuffPost, Cosmopolitan, Forbes, Virgin StartUp and Harvard Business Review. He has also been interviewed on Sky News, BBC Radio London, LBC radio's Business Hour show and for Barclays UK adverts.


    He is in the process of writing his first book with Penguin Random House.


    I had a great talk with Simon and we discussed the following:


     


    Creativity;


    The Value of Hard Work;


    Acquiring New Skills;


    Finding a Job in Investment banking Despite Struggling At University;


    Creating A Compelling Story;

    Episode 10. Recycleye: Turning Trash Into Treasure

    Episode 10. Recycleye: Turning Trash Into Treasure

    “Recycleye was Victor looking at the waste industry and also what I was doing in computer vision and then … here's some technology that could solve this problem and applying it to the industry … specifically on things that are currently manual” Peter Hedley told me on Episode 10 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.


    Peter is the co-founder and CTO of Recycleye, a London-based intelligent waste management start up, which is training the world’s most powerful recycling robotics  with machine learning to sort recycling waste in a more efficient manner. Recycleye was founded by Victor Dewulf, CEO, and Peter, who first met at the University of Bath.


    Their team of technologists and creatives has developed computer vision algorithms that replicate the power of human vision to identify every item in entire waste streams – broken down by material, object and even brand. 


    Recycleye secured £1.2 million in seed funding last December with MMC Ventures and Playfair Capital leading the round, with participation from leading funds. They recently sold their first machine, which is an amazing achievement!


    Peter has a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Bath and a Masters in Computer Science from Imperial College, London.


    I first met Peter three years ago when he was setting up a Technology Club along with Jack Young and Sam Collins. I knew nothing about technology but was interested in learning more and became friends with Peter, Jack and Sam. Peter was helpful when I started designing a personal development App based on neuroscience and psychology and from this research came the Reframe & Reset Your Career Podcast and YouTube channel.


    Peter and I had such a great conversation and we talked about the following:


     


    His Interest in Technology and Pivot to Computer Science,


    Meeting Victor and the start of Recycleye,


    How He Finds New Ideas,


    Technology as a medium of delivering content,


    Reimagining your Career as a Start Up and Extracting Value for Your Skills,


    The Reality of Working For a Start Up,


    Thinking Creatively to Develop Their First Prototype,


    Ways of Developing Creativity.


    The Evolution of His Role As Recycleye Has Grown,


    Switching Between Deep Work And Daily Tasks,


    Managing Uncertainty On A Personal & Company Level


    Finding A Path Into The Tech Industry, and


    Fostering An Open Company Culture
