The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.
Our very own Katherine Buchan was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Sir Andrew Strauss. Host Scott Challinor asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.
Katherine also discusses the current challenges the events industry faces as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and how it is dealing with such an unprecedented crisis. As business meetings and conferences in London are on hold it is important to plan for the future, despite the uncertainty many people feel at the moment.
Scott Challinor commented, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.’
Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Scott Challinor is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’
