    Getting the most out of your team with Paul Falcone, Global HR Consultant

    Getting the most out of your team with Paul Falcone, Global HR Consultant

    In the final episode of Series 5 of the Bet On Yourself podcast, I speak to global HR consultant Paul Falcone. He has worked at some of Hollywood's leading companies, including Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon, and is now setting about writing and publishing a five-book series on workplace leadership. His HR career started by chance at an executive search firm, and while it wasn't his first calling, his attitude and outlook took him to the top. Paul has some incredible stories to tell from his time in Hollywood, as well as some valuable lessons to pass on.

    Realizing your value with Sun Yi, Founder of Night Owls

    Realizing your value with Sun Yi, Founder of Night Owls

    In this week's episode of the Bet On Yourself podcast I am joined by Sun Yi, the founder of award-winning web agency Night Owls. Sun has done it all – from 9-to-5 jobs to starting and leaving his own companies – and is now looking to create a community by way of mentorship, sharing what he has learned with the world in a scalable way.

    Sun's self-confessed biggest weakness might have stopped anybody else from pursuing a creative career, but he soon realized it was in fact his biggest strength. Since then, he has used his scientific, analytical approach to build successful teams and take budding creators to the next level, helped along by his experience working in a whole host of different roles throughout his career.

    Using your voice with Dr Randal Pinkett and Dr Jeffrey Robinson, authors of Black Faces in High Places

    Using your voice with Dr Randal Pinkett and Dr Jeffrey Robinson, authors of Black Faces in High Places

    In this week's episode of the Bet On Yourself podcast, I am once again joined by two guests as I speak to Dr Randal Pinkett and Dr Jeffrey Robisnon, the authors of Black Faces in High Places. Published a decade after their first book, Black Faces in White Places, their latest work look at how people must not only fight for their place at the table, but use it to the benefit of others once they are there. Drawing on the examples of Carol Dweck and Barack Obama, among others, the authors talk to me about their experiences of academia, their careers and how they went about writing their newest book.

    Finding your superpower with Sage Ke'alohilani Quiamno, Global DE&I Tech Lead at Amazon Studios

    Finding your superpower with Sage Ke'alohilani Quiamno, Global DE&I Tech Lead at Amazon Studios

    On this week's episode of the Bet On Yourself podcast, I speak to Sage Ke'alohilani Quiamno, Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Amazon Prime Video and Studios. Having wanted to be a lawyer as a child, Sage has always sought justice in the world and has since dedicated her career to ensuring that businesses – both brand-new startups and large, global corporates – are representative of the communities they serve. She is also now using her platform to give back to the people of Hawaii through trust-based philanthropy, as a board member of the Hawaii People's Fund. Sage's story from international canoe paddling competitions to boardrooms across America is as colourful as it is moving, and I can't wait to share it with you today.

    Identifying opportunity with Liane Katz and Rumbi Pfende, founders of MAMA.Codes

    Identifying opportunity with Liane Katz and Rumbi Pfende, founders of MAMA.Codes

    On this week's episode of the Bet On Yourself podcast, I am joined by not one, but two amazing guests in Liane Katz and Rumbi Pfende of MAMA.Codes, a coding school for toddlers and children in the UK. Their business was born out of frustration – children were not getting the digital education they needed to survive in tomorrow's world. That frustration aligned with passions and interests in STEM subjects to create the perfect storm, and MAMA.Codes was born. Having had the foresight to take things online just before the pandemic hit, business boomed as parents were stuck at home with their children and now they've got their sights set on the next chapter of their story.

    Maximizing your time with Rick Pastoor, author of GRIP

    Maximizing your time with Rick Pastoor, author of GRIP

    On this week's episode of the Bet On Yourself podcast, I speak to Rick Pastoor. Having mastered his own time management, Rick wrote an internal guide for employees at his start-up, Blendle, on how to be more efficient with their own. After making it public, GRIP became an overnight best-seller in the Netherlands, which saw it go on to be published internationally. Rick admits that his principles are nothing new, but the way in which he presents the ideas in GRIP has meant they have landed with people in a way that has completely transformed their lives – personally and professionally.
