Grandkids Test

The Podcast – Out Now


Where bold leaders talk about how to create a sustainable future for generations to come.

What is the Grandkids Test?

We ask creative and business visionaries to talk about ways to secure a viable future for generations to come. Given the monumental challenges we currently face such as the climate crisis, unsustainable consumerism and the mental health crisis, it is easy to feel frustrated and powerless.

So, how can we all, as individuals and business players contribute to solutions? How can we move from doom and gloom to optimism and brave action?

As the great saying goes: “with great power comes great responsibility.” It is our responsibility to create positive social change.

Change is hard. So let’s hear how it can be done.

What motivates me is helping business leaders achieve personal and commercial growth while delivering a positive impact. Why do I feel compelled to do this?

Always attracted by innovation I carved out my career first as an event programmer and then as a marketeer within tech start-ups. I worked alongside visionaries helping launch new products and services in cutting edge sectors – at the same time, I became increasingly aware of the power we ‘business people’ have to impact people’s lives – both positively and negatively.

Later on, I felt compelled to consolidate all my skills to set up my own event series to address issues close to my heart.

Be You Talks began life as a series of events tackling the narrow choices brands and media campaigns had offered women and girls – often portraying stereotypical gender roles and presenting unattainable images of ‘perfection’ plus a singular version of beauty. The event series set out to explore ways to reverse the damaging social impact of such pervasive images and messages. We gathered politicians and leading business leaders to demonstrate the commercial case for using more diverse imagery in advertising.

What became clear from these events was the appetite for the business community to do good, to think more carefully about their output and to behave responsibly whilst still enhancing their bottom line.

The Grandkids Test Podcast expands the scope of the Be You Talks events and explores ways we can do business in a new more socially conscious way, in order to tackle the huge challenges we face today – such as climate change, unsustainable consumerism and the mental health crisis. It is time for us to step out of our comfort zone, innovate and find better ways to operate.

As a qualified NLP coach (2009) I now  work with thought leaders wanting to bring their big visions to life.
