podcast with Lawrence Jones MBE, UKFast CEO and Jeremiah EmmanuelA year ago, I began a new journey: podcasting. It’s not something I’d done before and it certainly felt a little odd, talking away to myself at first!

However, a year down the line, we’ve talked about everything from Donald Trump to the power of self-belief and mental health. And it’s building real momentum.

Along the way I’ve interviewed some extraordinary characters, and thought that on the anniversary of starting this journey, I’d share some of the well-received topics and some of the interesting characters I have encountered so far.

Changing the World

My most recent guest was Jeremiah Emmanuel. Jeremiah, as you may already know if you read my posts regularly, is a young man who is destined to change the world. I met him through Sir Richard Branson and the STRIVE challenge team. Having experienced youth violence first hand, Jeremiah dedicates his time to becoming a role model for young people living with gang culture and violence.

In this podcast, we talk about that journey, his experience saving a man’s life and how he ended up going from the concrete of London to sitting on a donkey coming down a mountain in the middle of the Moroccan desert.

Building Great Leaders

It is said that the job of a great leader is to grow more leaders. I couldn’t agree more! I am a huge believer in growing a leadership team from within the business. There’s nothing more rewarding than unlocking your team’s potential and nurturing their growth.

So how do you do it? Back in February, I recorded this podcast to share how I look for and develop leaders within a business and why this approach is transformative.

Doing Things Differently

Back in November last year, the whole UKFast team gathered to experience the magic of the Tony Robbins team. Whilst it’s a very American concept to have a room full of people and be taught about goal setting and mindset, the results are undeniable!

I managed to grab some time with Mike Savage, one of Tony Robbins’ right-hand men, to record this podcast. Mike led the training team and has been with the Tony Robbins Institute for most of his life.

Here we discussed the life-changing training.

It’s certainly been an interesting year so far. Recording these podcasts has driven me to meet more interesting people and reflect on the journey we’ve been on so far.

I’d love to know what you’d like to hear more about, what burning questions do you have?
Thanks for reading, thanks for listening. Here’s to many more interesting conversations!
