    Episode 15. Mike Lever

    2 MAY. 2024 · The banking crash of 2007/8 was the most severe global financial crisis since the Great Depression, but what was it like to be on the inside of it? Mike Lever was there. Sitting around war tables, trying to rebuild a bank - Northern Rock - that was on its knees. At the same time, Mike and his wife were living with repeated rounds of failed IVF, and whilst taking a shower one Saturday ended with Mike in intensive care having had a massive brain haemorrhage. What happens when you wake up in intensive care and just how does a brain haemorrhage change you? Can you live well after such a life changing brain injury? And what is Neuroeconomics?  You’re going to love this sarcastic, funny, but powerful conversation with Mike, Sales Performance Expert, Speaker and Children’s Author. Enjoy!  https://www.linkedin.com/build-relation/newsletter-follow?entityUrn=7103087169040171008  https://www.linkedin.com/in/strategicdirector/

    Episode 10. Thor Holt

    13 MAR. 2024 · Thor Holt is a Performance Coach, Non Exec Director and Podcast Host. When I ask him to define success he replies “Having a laugh. Because life is too short not to have a laugh with your clients.” Humour is one of the bedrocks in life for Thor, who has also been known to tread the boards of a comedy club or two. Wow, does this conversation cover a lot of topics - plant medicine, the tenets of coaching, speaking with courage - also the name of his podcast (formerly the Hippie Hut) - Thor’s upbringing on Shetland and the Tarlov Cyst on his spine which doesn’t return anything nice when you give it a Google. This chat is full of intelligence, thought provoking approaches to life, and naturally, a lot of laughter. Enjoy!  https://open.spotify.com/show/5627gIuO5RgEdhXDuAFJkF?si=0d28b8a0dc494af7 http://linkedin.com/in/thorholt

    Episode 8. Kaye Moors

    1 MAR. 2024 · Let’s be honest, covid, lockdowns, 2020 was not a brilliant year and the first six months were no different for Kaye Moors, Managing Director of Drum. After months of home schooling the summer holidays couldn’t have come soon enough, but two days in Kaye had a massive brain hemorrhage, which would eventually lead to a second, months in hospital and years of rehab. How do you rebuild your business after that, is it even possible? What was it really like living inside a locked hospital during a global pandemic? As a result of the two brain hemorrhages, and a 19 hour brain surgery, Kaye’s left handside is paralysed and she has trigeminal neuralgia - also known as "the suicide disease” because of the intense pain it causes. Kaye’s story is remarkable. She continues to run Drum as MD, having made specific adjustments to let her continue which she explains in our conversation. Kaye is also an award nominated disability campaigner and digital inclusivity champion. You can find out all about Kaye's activism by following https://www.linkedin.com/in/kaye-moors-02bb203/ And learn more about the work that Drum do by https://wearedrum.com/
