New to Celebrancy

This podcast is so useful, encouraging and enlightening to me.
Being new to the world of Celebrancy I enjoy listening to Natasha’s words of wisdom but also love that she is reflective and willing to highlight, debate and discuss areas that all of us should be considering in our roles.
