    Business mindset, presence and reaching our full potential: Meeting Gaj Ravichandra

    Business mindset, presence and reaching our full potential: Meeting Gaj Ravichandra

    How do we bring back focus to what we CAN control? How do we find more presence and ultimately reduce the anxiety of the unknown in order to perform better in the corporate world? As 2020 continues to spin in circles of stress, Gaj Ravichandra and I talk about this and much more as we discuss optimal performance, team work and recovery in 2021, as well as how we reach our own definition of ‘peak’ in our careers. A fountain of wisdom and calm in the business world I loved hearing Gaj’s view and found the whole thing deeply refreshing. 

    "Leaders are not born. They are made and then reborn with every experience they encounter!” – Gaj Ravichandra

    Leaning on 20 years of experiences and a background in Organizational Psychology, Gaj focuses his work on developing mental toughness, resilience, achieving peak performance.

    Do we have enough empathy for women in advertising? Meeting Nicky Kemp.

    Do we have enough empathy for women in advertising? Meeting Nicky Kemp.

    Nicola Kemp says it as it is. Having recently written a piece for Campaign UK titled “Mummy, what did you do in the great COVID crisis,” which sparked much discussion, Nicky and I talk about leadership and what she really thinks about empathy for women in the advertising industry. We discuss whether agencies have any idea what change and equity really means, how far we have come and how far we have to go.  Season 2 begins with a whole lot of honesty, a bag load of braveness and a true frankness that looks at things as they really are.

    “For the creative and media industries, this headline and its implicit everyday sexism also serve as an urgent reminder of just how important inclusion is for organizations and brands that have such a pivotal role in setting the tone for the broader cultural debate.” Nicola Kemp, Campaign, August 2020.

    Dear Beirut: Special Edition

    Dear Beirut: Special Edition

    This is a special edition podcast with a live reading fusing much of what I do on my breakfast show, Empathy for Breakfast (reading live) with my podcast.  Today I am sharing some words dedicated to Lebanon, to Beirut, and to all of those people part of the recovery since the explosion that quite literally blew our minds as well as their city. So often the spoken word can be more powerful than the written one so whilst this piece will appear in the media here I wanted to share a reading of it, from the heart, from me to you.  In times of recovery we are stronger together and this very short recording talks about the role of empathy in these times, about the powerful link between empathy and recovery and about our ability to rebuild our community together. 

    Dear Beirut. May construction begin, may your city rise again and may empathy be the glue that pulls it back together.

Enlightening & Refreshing

Mimis take on the corporate world as well as the empathy gap in society and politics, is a refreshing one. It’s a soft perspective, but one with a potentially great impact of strengthening our relationships, corporations and future. I am especially loving reading Mimis book now!
