    Glowing Up With Attitude - Morgan Defre

    Glowing Up With Attitude - Morgan Defre

    Morgan Defre is not your typical passionate Frenchman, the fact is, what these days would be "typical"?  He's an artist, one who cares deeply about those he works with and who believes it's important to find your passion in life and live it.
    Just be grateful I didn't take Morgan up on his lingual challenge, my A level French would've been found wanting whilst my guest's lyrical accent draws you into his world of transformation and empowerment.
    I loved this conversation I'm sure you will too. Please follow our future episodes and leave a review.

    Q1. Holly Marsh, Talent Development Manager in London asks - 

    "Many organisations use apprenticeships as a tool to bring in new talent and diversify the workforce. What are the the main challenges associated with this and what solutions can be put in place?" 

     

    Q2. Kiera in Birmingham asks "Can you give an example of how you make your direct reports feel a sense of inclusion, belonging, and equity on a daily basis?"



    Bio ⁠– Sue Johnson⁠

    Risk, Recovery and Lessons - Life After Covid with Sarah Daniels

    In this special episode we meet hugely experienced and successful business owner and Health & Safety Consultant Sarah Daniels.

    Sarah appeared as one of our contributors to offer thoughts on the HReSource survey and our conversation proved one that deserved airing in full...so here it is.

    We cover a range of issues from workloads to the Governments response to Covid-19 and the subsequent lessons we should be learning.

    BIO Sarah Daniels
    Supercharged and pragmatic Risk Management Practitioner, with big hair, she loves chocolate, Cake and Gin & laughs like a Dragon! Sarah is a Chartered Practitioner by profession. She founded the bespoke Health and Safety Consultancy The RedCat Partnership Ltd in 1999, after she found that helping people suited her skill set & personality more than the Enforcement work, she was doing!
    As if running one business wasn’t enough, she opened No8 Thorpe Road a shared office space back in 2014 before hybrid working was a real thing! Like RedCat No8 has exceptional sustainability credentials, and a personal service. Enabling Sarah to have the workspace she has always desired.
    If Sarah wasn’t helping folks with their Risk Management, she would be a florist, or a gardener preferably living in Northern Portugal.
