The Job Podcast - Series 3
The benefits of Executive Coaching? - After all no one’s perfect!
Are you really reaching your true potential? How to start a virtuous loop on business impact and self-development? Through this podcast Holger describes coaching as a “path finding exercise“ certainly not limited to “Executives”. You will discover Holger’s innovative approach, the Holben Sprint, a process that avoids long winded assessments, but dives instead right into your “bright spots“ to maximise your effectiveness. The Holben Sprint method produces a radical focus on two main areas, ONE selected leadership challenge on the outside and a corresponding self-development opportunity on the inside. Together they form a virtuous loop of business impact and personal growth. Nigel finds out from Holger what the ‘Love Zone’ is and how to bust the barriers, focus on the ‘bright spots’ and critical elements to keep the commitment high throughout the process. This podcast is really insightful, especially if you are someone who is considering coaching, but not yet taken the leap or an senior executive that can see the benefit of this type of support for their leaders and emerging leaders.

Commercial Excellence/Sales Effectiveness – What’s all the fuss about?
My good friend and business colleague, Greg Walsh (https://www.linkedin.com/in/greg-walsh-9b816b/) joins me for the latest podcast discussing Commercial / Sales Effectiveness. Greg’s background is within the Pharma and Medical Devices sector where he held global executive leadership roles in companies such as J&J, Baxter Healthcare, Becton Dickinson and BTG. Greg’s knowledge on commercialisation, sales effectiveness, corporate strategy, new product launches across EMEA and US markets, marketing, P&L, market development, patient centric business models are second to none. In 2018 Greg became an Atlantic Fellow in brain health from the Global Brain Health Institute (www.gbhi.org) at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and UCSF, San Francisco and has since set up his own business, DDS Architects Ltd (www.ddsarchitects.org) , a specialist design and training architects practice at the forefront of building and interior design for cognitive and sensory accessibility and inclusion, setting and implementing best practice design for ageing, dementia and neurodiversity. And if that wasn’t enough, he is also a key speaker on customer centric strategy, leadership and entrepreneurship at GBHI- UCSF and Trinity, GIBS South Africa, Imperial College, London. During the podcast on this vast topic, Greg shares some insightful knowledge and advice on What Sales Effectiveness is? and uses the phrase “delighting your customer”, bringing the customer what they really want, building lasting relationships and using a whole organisation approach to deliver the offering and satisfying the customer needs as a long-term strategy. Greg gives real life examples from personal experiences on how to approach a Sales Effectiveness strategy and stresses the importance that this requires whole company buy in, consistency and a commitment to execute a plan that could take up to 5 years to embed and see results. He has worked with companies to achieve these goals and has seen huge cultural shifts moving towards an outcome/solutions delivery which has “delighted” the customer and seen significant company growth as a result. Hope you enjoy watching - we'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences on this topic.
"What Venture Capitalists Want”
In this current podcast series entitled ‘Business Masterclass’ Nigel is talking with leading experts across a number of different sectors on how to succeed in business. This week's podcast takes Nigel into the world of early-stage investment, and he had the pleasure of talking with two expert guests, Rainer Christine and Joey Mason. Both these two leaders in early-stage investment have the perspective of being both venture capitalists and Founder CEOs Rainer describes himself as a “Life-science entrepreneur turned life-science investor“ with a “Focus on helping to build disruptive life-science companies that deliver strong benefits to patients and customers in a scalable fashion, leading to superior returns for shareholders. I am a strong believer in helping to create and support outstanding teams.” These are not just words for a LinkedIn profile; rather, his knowledge of and enthusiasm for this industry are evident throughout the entire episode. Joey Mason has invested in, directed and advised entrepreneurial businesses in all sectors of life sciences and healthcare from medical devices to health IT to biotechnology in Ireland, the EU and the US. He also brings multi-sector experience in a consumer health start-up, biotech corporate development and investment banking. Joey is clear in his thinking, straight talking, giving concise actionable advice. The advice and knowledge that they share would be beneficial to any founder or start-up looking into the idea of early-stage investment. During the podcast Nigel asks insightful questions including: • As a founder of a company, how do I get the attention of a VC investor? • What do I need to understand about the market I plan to launch a product in? • What are the main focus areas for my business to successfully gain investment? • In simple terms how do investment rounds work? • What due-diligence do VCs do when considering an investment opportunity? Nigel asks Rainer and Joey to summarise any advice they would give to anyone embarking on seeking venture capital investment. You’ll have to listen to hear their full advice but “kissing a lot of frogs” and “if you don’t love it, don’t do it” made it to their top tips! Hope you enjoy watching.
How to find the positives in any situation
Welcome to series 3 of The Job Podcast. To start this new series on a positive note Nigel has had the pleasure of interviewing Avril Chester on the topic of Positivity. Avril is an award-winning Technology Entrepreneur, experienced CTO, Author, Podcast Host and Cancer Thriver. She has been featured in Computer Weekly's most influential women in UK Tech 2022, 2021 & 2020 long list, was the Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 Women in IT Awards winner, is the Founder of Cancer Central and author of 'Tech Treats and Treasures'. Avril has recently been appointed CTO for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. During the podcast Avril shares some very personal health experiences and talks about the “Radiators and Drainers” and how to boost positivity by the people you surround yourself with. Avril used her positivity combined with her technology expertise to develop Cancer Central, a growing platform helping people affected by cancer find the support and information they need. Avril shares her thoughts with Nigel on how she looks to find positivity in all areas of her life and the importance of having fun, it is therefore no surprise that her book 'Tech Treats and Treasures' is a compilation from 80 influential leaders sharing fun stories, nuggets of advice and words of encouragement to spread the positivity vibe (also worth noting that all proceeds of the book is put towards supporting the development of Cancer Central). Nigel asks Avril how she manages to stay positive and she shares some brilliant ‘pick me up’ questions that can help you turn a not-so-positive situation into a more positive one and how you can regain some form of control. The Podcast is fun, light hearted with some thought provoking topics – thank you for watching.
