The Green Room by Deloitte tackles a tricky question about the world around us every two weeks. From automation anxiety to zero waste, we’ll call on clever experts and great research from our firm and beyond to find the answer.
Episode #25: Do we care more about a brand or what they stand for?
Some brands have been around for generations. But we keep going back for more. And it doesn’t make it easy for the new kids on the block. So why exactly do we have such an emotional connection to them? Are we all just creatures of habit, easily charmed… or is there more to it?
Episode #24: What’s it like to be Black in Britain today?
How often do you think about race? If you’re white, chances are – rarely. That’s because you’re unlikely to be the only person in a room who looks like you. If you’re Black, race defines your experience from the day you are born. The street you grow up in. The school you attend. The friends you make. The jobs you go for. We might say we don’t see colour, but our skin marks every aspect of our lives.
Episode #23: One year on: did anything go to plan?
When our CEO Richard Houston took on the role in 2019, he spoke to our hosts about starting a new job and preparing for his next step. He was prepared for a challenging year, with uncertainty around Brexit, the ongoing audit debate and the pressures of life at the top. But what he couldn’t predict was a global pandemic. A pandemic that would turn our lives upside down and change the world forever.
Episode #22: Can we finally stop talking about Brexit?
At 23:00 on January 31, three years and four months after the EU referendum, the UK officially stopped being a member of the EU. But is it really all over? Can we finally stop talking about it? Or are we only just getting started?
Episode #21: Are we buying less because we care more?
Are we buying less, or just spending in ways that make us feel good? Can consumerism ever truly be sustainable? Or are shopping sprees now a thing of the past?
Episode #20: How much are we prepared to share for an easy life?
We live in a data-driven world. And it would be pretty difficult to exist in it without sharing information about who we are and what we like. But are we trading our privacy for the convenient life data gives us? How far are we willing to go? Where is this valuable information going? And what happens when it all goes wrong?

Imposter syndrome made clear
This was a powerful and candid explanation of Imposter syndrome - viewed through the lens of mental health it becomes crystal clear. Poppy Jaman was a disarming and relatable guest. Great - and meaningful - discussion.
