In this episode, Mel dives deep into these recent podcast episodes


005 The Answer is Inclusion with Linbert Spencer OBE


006 Workplace Wellbeing with Bobbi Hartshorne


007 Turn Customer Service Inwards with Andrew McMillan


Three conversations about three very different topics.  Interestingly, whilst on the surface these subjects are distinct, as we dived deep into each episode, and my guests shared their wonderful insights some common themes began to emerge. These included the pitfalls of throwing money at a challenge without being super clear about where you are going from a strategic perspective.




“Behavioural change is the fundamental piece that is often missing when we articulate where it is we want to go. We fail to spend time thinking about what will be different when we achieve our goal. What will we see, hear, and feel? How will our experience have changed? How will the experience of our team, colleagues, students have changed?”
