Sara Udin is a client, friend and absolute go getter and one for youth voices in celebrating on the podcast. She spoke to me about what it's like being a Brit starting a business based in Cambodia. "These were all huge things for me to both emotionally, and obviously commercially to overcome when starting a period business in a country where periods are not spoken about periods are not considered clean they are to do with your beauty and intelligence. It's shown me that the period of education is missing. And that's why we're going to provide it.
" I think my favourite exercise when I started this book with my book coach was to write the publishers headline, and think about what I'd want people to say about the book. I'm going to share this with you now - let me know what you think!! "Insightful, unconventional, structured, and providing the reader with a framework that flexes to their needs and individual contexts and encompasses storytelling, practical advice and coaching in one comprehensive stream of thought, and provides you with the tools to make those tough career decisions with greater ease. It is a remarkably easy, thought provoking read"
Belinda Ng, is a client, friend and inspiration to me. she shares her thoughts on employment at major corporations, and on food security in this episode. "The question that comes up for me is how much of this is really embedded within what they're doing? And it's true to their core purpose? Or is it really just, you know, controversial greenwashing. And that they're just kind of saying this, because it's kind of part of a cool, trendy thing that all companies are doing now. And they can have a lot of money to market themselves in this way. But I think actually, I'm more hopeful than I am cautious. There's the cautious element is more that it's making sure I still have that critical mindset that my education has really shaped me to have to not just take things at face value, but really try and explore deeper ask critical questions"
Abortion ESG is a term I've coined to describe the implications of abortion on the environment, the societies that form us, and the governance tha's meant to protects us. A friend introduced me to the term Cognitive Polyphasia where different knowledge and rationales live side by side in one person. And this is definitely something we are all experiencing when attempting to tackle complex issues in order to make deliberate choices. If we consider that all lives matter, the dissonance becomes even louder. Because we take so much life in the broad sense of bandwidth, in order that we may preserve our own. This is precisely the decision many women make of the people I know personally around the world who have gone through the ordeal of terminating a pregnancy. I don't recall meeting a single one who is proud of it, talks openly about it, or does not sometimes wonder what could have been.
Should companies focus exclusively on maximising profit? Nothing in life is that straightfoward, and certainly not today when our understanding of how our world works has had quantum leaps.

She brings some incredible insights. Before this recording, Susan said to me, the interesting thing emerging from her sustainable energy journey is that the role of engineering in the economy and policy is huge and not well understood, even by engineers. Today she wants us to dive into the underbelly of the economy where the engineers drive the engines of progress, and destruction… Sounds ominous!
