Blaire Palmer hosts the business podcast ‘Punks in Suits’
The crazy lady with the dog is Blaire Palmer and she’s as lovely as she is crazy. I can’t help but be innately suspicious of people who don’t like dogs, so when I met Blaire at a business roadshow event we were both working at, we hit it off right away because she loves gardening, grows her own, wants to buy a smallholding and keep alpacas (that bit was a bit weird) and she has dogs.
Blaire interviewed me for her business podcast series, Punks in Suits, which is available to listen free on iTunes here and also free here on Podomatic for people who hate Mac.
I did once have a mohawk but I’ve never been a punk so I’m not sure why I was asked onto her show but I was flattered and also very pleased to be interviewed by Blaire. We talk about the research project I launched, The Good Life Project; one of our new courses ‘Chicken Training for Managers’; dogs (of course); the problem with leadership and management and why so many managers are ineffective; solutions for truly effective leadership and a spooky coincidence, too.
Take a listen, I think you’ll enjoy it.
