    Getting Recognition Right with Debra Corey

    Debra Corey is a highly experienced and award-winning HR leader, consultant, world-class speaker, and five-time best-selling author who has been named as one of the top 101 Global Employee Engagement Influencers and HR Most Influential Thinkers. 
      
    After 20+ years working for global companies such as Gap Inc, Merlin Entertainments and Reward Gateway, she now inspires and ‘pays it forward’ by helping others develop and deliver HR strategies in a rebellious way, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo to truly drive employee engagement.  
     
    Debra has a new book out called ‘See it, Say it, Appreciate it’.
     
    With 65% of employees saying that they don’t feel appreciated, and 75% of employees who quit their job citing a lack of recognition as the key driver, clearly something’s not working. Debra’s book is written as a call to action and how-to-guide for managers who want to get it right.

    Building a Modern Legacy Brand with Mark Miller

    Building a Modern Legacy Brand with Mark Miller

    Mark Miller is the co-author of ‘Legacy in the Making: Building a Long-Term Brand to Stand Out in a Short-Term World’. He is the founder of The Legacy Lab, a thought leadership and consulting practice that explores how brands can build modern legacies; and he is also Chief Strategy Officer at Team One, Publicis Group’s global luxury and premium brand agency.
    Recently, Mark and his strategy team at The Legacy Lab published a pioneering study. It reports on the rare breed of leaders and brands writing history every day, the people they inspire to bring the past forward, and the physical or digital products and experiences they create to build lasting legacies in a short-term world. 
    Traditionally, “legacy” refers to the past. This important study examines legacy as a still-vital part of today. The resulting book, ‘Legacy in the Making’, has been endorsed by Simon Sinek as “a must-read for anyone who wants their work to last beyond their lifetime.” It was a #1 new release on Amazon and a bestseller on the Washington Post list and other places.
    I get sent many books as a result of hosting this show, and this is one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. As a result, this is an incredibly rich podcast interview where Mark shares some incredible stories of truly great leadership at remarkable businesses; there are some that you will have heard of, and others that you probably haven’t.
    Mark had kindly given us two copies of the book to give away to listeners of the show for free. All you need to do is click on the link in the show notes below.

    Transformational Leadership with Gavin Smith

    Transformational Leadership with Gavin Smith

    This week it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Gavin Smith who has worked in the public transport industry for over 20 years, starting his career as a bus driver in London. From there he moved into operations roles which eventually led to a five year secondment to Singapore as Operations Director for Go Ahead.
    During those five years Gavin digitised all operational processes through developing a bespoke app for the business, delivered improved efficiency through operational reviews and became involved in international tendering, leading to successful secondments in Australia and a Project Director role with Go Ahead Group.
    Six months ago he relocated to East Anglia where he is currently Managing Director of Go Ahead’s Operations there. And this is where we pick up the story.
    You’re going to love this episode in which we talk about the changes required to move from ops director to managing director, the lessons he learned whilst working in South East Asia and how these are helping him be an effective MD today.

Too kind Ben! High performing teams are easy to lead if you surround yourself with people far better than you are, as I was lucky enough to have with you and the 187 San team. Been too long as you say and I would love to sip a beer with you buddy. Stay safe

If you're looking to progress your leadership career, these interviews will help hugely as the strategies shared are tried and tested by the best in business.
