Here’s some of what I share in the show:

My Experience of 2017

I explain how 2017 was a milestone year for me,

“I became a Dr in 2017. I wanted to use what I’ve learned and a few months later I launched this podcast to support organisations like yours to help their people to reach their potential and drive performance through inclusive practices”

2018 will be the year of Demographic Data

I describe demographic data will be available at an unprecedented level in 2018 and this will lead to

“I predict that smart organisations will start to collect and publish all of their demographic data…. especially if it’s bad news”

Quality Resources to Help You Achieve your Goals

I explain my plans to provide you with outstanding resources to help you achieve the goals of your employee resource groups

“My final prediction is a cheeky one because it’s a prediction that I know is going to come true. My final prediction is to increase the high quality resources to help you achieve your goal”
