    John Caswell created Group Partners as an antidote to the frustrations and missed opportunities of the leaders in the business world. He saw the lack of creativity and thoughtfulness forced on businesses through legacy processes, investment in the wrong objectives, and generally, how easy it was to solve the wrong problems really well. And above all, he saw how these things were all the better for being brought to life visually.

Chiara Covone ,

Rich authentic content

Vesna interviews a variety of personalities and this makes her podcast interesting and original. I like the fact that she interviews personality with different background, stories and nationalities.

Super interesting

From today’s podcast: ’people are looking for content’ and that is what Vesna’s podcast is delivering, with every guest.
Vesna has invited many interesting guests to her program over the years and has a wonderful way to get them speaking of truly important topics. Love to listen Corporate Unplugged.

Tatiana Ivanova ,

Informative and thoughtful - a must for my daily commute

Corporate Unplugged, hosted by masterful Vesna Lucca, explores a wide range of topics that all share one common denominator - socially responsible and purposeful corporate life. You will meet a careful selection of knowledgeable and impressive guests including such prominent figures as Simon Sinek and Seth Godin as well as many experienced entrepreneurs, CEOs, researchers and academics. I am especially impressed by all the women who share their insights and experiences about fulfilment at work, meaningful leadership, midlife career change, parenthood and many others.
