S02 E08 Celebrating Black History month with 3 Strong Black Women
Our latest episode celebrates Black History Month with three amazing ladies who are members of the Leeds African Communities Trust. Meet Lucy Ndlovu, Abigail Marshall Katung and Kendi Guantai and please have a look at their biographies further below.
We explored the idea of the Strong Black Woman; where does it come from? why is it important? what are the positive and negative aspects of it?
I found this discussion fascinating as I’m not from that community and wanted to learn more. I also wanted to compare it with the messages that I received from my Latin American cultural background.
Lucy Ndlovu is a researcher and a recent graduate at Leeds Beckett University where she completed an MA in Public Relations and strategic communication. She currently works in the Housing sector in this field. She is interested in the sociocultural model of PR and communication and as a practitioner, Lucy looks at race, gender, class and ethics and how these frame vital discussions within organisations.
Abigail Marshall Katung is a Labour & Cooperative Councillor in Leeds City Council. She’s the Lead Member for BAME, Support Executive Member, Chairs the Strategic Board of FE (14-19)25yrs and the Hate Crime Strategic Board. She is the first African to be elected on to the Leeds Council in May 2019. She is also an England Athletics Coach specialising in sprinting at the Leeds City Athletics Club.
Dr. Kendi Guantai is a public speaker, corporate communications expert, mother and community advocate.

S02 E04 Simplicity
Our new episode is about keeping things simple with Kieran O'Connor, aka The Simplicity Guy. We chat about finding more simple solutions to life's challenges. Often we can feel overwhelmed when dealing with issues and problems and can't see how to move forward, even if the answer is right in front of us.
Kieran also mentions the regular self-care practices that help him improve his creativity and support his ability to find the simple solutions.
I've always enjoyed talking to Kieran about big topics because as an engineer, he often comes at things from quite a different angle to me. He's morphed into a published author and his latest book is called 'The 1% Improvement Mindset'.
S02 E03 Feng Shui
Happy New Year to you all! We’re very excited to start 2020 with a podcast on Feng Shui with consultant Korina Hortynska. Korina explains how changing the energy in your home or work environment can impact important aspects of your life. She also gives a few practical suggestions to improve our spaces by moving things around and using colour.
The new year is a great time to de-clutter and change things up a bit. A good friend of mine recently did a pop up shop in her home of clothes and items she no longer wanted which now other people can use and enjoy. This inspired me so much that I'm currently going through my things to give some away. I always feel so much better after I've done this as I feel lighter and notice a change in how my space feels. Hopefully this will inspire you to start 2020 with more clarity and energy to make the improvements in your life that you want to make! Best wishes x

I really like the various topics explored on this podcast. My favourite part is the stories of how practitioners came to a certain paths in their lives and the things that shaped them along the way. I’ll definitely be tuning in to more!
