Listening and leadership

I first met Andy Lopata while I was on a fintech panel. He asked a question from the floor, and I realised I was the only member of the panel who didn’t know him. Later, he helped me build a clearer understanding of the role and power of networks and relationships while I was leading Level39.

This week he has published the most recent in his excellent #ConnectedLeadership podcast series, and I’m his guest. We discuss what experiences – and leadership challenges – we shared across each of three of my roles: Royal Marine, investment banker and startup founder. Listening played a large part. I hope you’ll enjoy the podcast which you can hear here:
