Ikigai - a topical podcast - ‘to live the realisation one hopes for’

9/18/2018
More
This is a new format I want to try out, a topical podcast, so please give me some feedback. I read Philip Perry’s article on Ikigai a few months back. Ikigai is a Japanese concept about what you love, what you and the world needs and what you are good at. It translates into your passion, mission, vocation and profession. And the overlap is Ikigai, which translates as ‘to live the realisation one hopes for’. As an expert on the topic I invited Philip to tell us about Ikigai and what it...

Begin with the end in mind and more productivity tips from Kate Lavender

9/6/2018
More
This week I interview Kate Lavender, a superstar I wanted to interview for a long time, and we finally found some time in both of our diaries. She seems to be a mega-juggler, between family and a successful career, and we discuss work life balance, productivity and get a little bit philosophical around life in general. Kate and I chat about success and happiness, having this undisturbed time to being able to let go and enjoy the moment. Her mantra is ‘begin with the end in mind’ (Stephen...

We are starting season two with a recording of a conversation with two guests over beers, so it’s a bit longer than the usual one. We kick it off with Dale Lovell and Francis Turner from AdYouLike. So we talk a lot about native advertising and have a lot of fun. Whilst we joke and chat a lot, we also go deep into the entrepreneurial spirit of launching a startup, growing it and joining forces with another company, managing cultures, people, job titles and growing pains.

Suki Thompson - Be Fearless

6/26/2018
More
Suki Thompson is an amazing woman, to the extend I was actually nervous interviewing her. But she made me feel at ease so quickly and we touched on so many interesting topics as we sat down and tuned in. These include her building the Oystercatchers and sell it to Centaur Media, whilst juggling two children and family. We discussed gender equality and her upbringing in Cornwall. Whilst doing all that she used to do triathlons which she now tuned down a bit due her history of having cancer....

Tim Drake - Generation Cherry

6/14/2018
More
Today I welcome Tim Drake on the podcast. Tim used to run a successful business he sold years ago. For various reason, the sale did not give him enough to live on in comfort for the next thirty or forty years. There was no way he wanted to go into conventional work in an organisation, so he created multiple – independent – income streams. He founded Think Tanks for Chief Executives, did selective consultancy work, and wrote books on his experiences. His latest book is called ‘Generation...

Emily Penn - Ocean Advocate

6/6/2018
More
This is an episode close to my heart. Emily Penn is an ocean advocate, skipper and campaigner. She is on a mission to get us all to save our oceans and understand the impact of plastic pollution on particularly female health. So whilst we speak about success, there have been few routines in Emily’s life, but ambitious goals to make this world a better and cleaner place. Her journey is amazing and what I took away from this episode is even more awareness on how many plastic bags we use, how...

This week’s podcast is with Sophie Newton, the COO of Brainlabs. It was a quicker than usual conversation, mainly because Sophie is super smart, quick to the point and knows what she is talking about. We discuss a lot of personal development and routines, and really touch on values, how contribution to society matters and gender equality; for the latter Sophie won awards. A selection of her endless book list can be seen on my recommendations page.

Stories of Success with Jim Brigden

4/26/2018
More
Interviewing Jim Brigden was an absolute pleasure. We drifted a bit into politics, spoke about success, family and being at the right time, right place to maximise one’s opportunity. He told me loads I didn't know, and explained how he had a few exits so far; he made me think and hope you can take a ton away from this conversation. Success is more about happiness than cash, and wealth, so Jim, cannot be measured in cash. He is a man of strong values and an "Entrepreneurial GM". I hope you...

Her approach to life seems simple, yet very profound. I enjoyed every minute of our conversation about coaching, morning routines, and what life has in stock for us. We didn’t drift too much into the philosophical side of things, but discovered a lot around success, discussed...

It was an honour to speak to Bruce Daisley, Head of Twitter in Europe and podcast host of ‘Eat Sleep Work Repeat’. Not only did he give me hints and tips on podcasting but he revealed that he doesn’t have a master plan and thinks that most of the discussions around ‘success’ are not for him. He started interviewing me at some point and we reflected a lot on habits, work culture and how hard work, persistency and reasoning always pays off.
