Resilience and recovery

In this episode, I interview Nathan Simmonds

Nathan helps business leaders and professionals stuck in their 9-5’s, take the lead on their careers, work out what they bring when they’re at their best and create fulfilment in the work they do.

 He does this using the tools and ideas he’s learned as a business coach, trainer, speaker, and soon to be author.

 He has a vulnerability and courage gathered from a multitude of highs and lows, personally and professionally which he’s deeply reflected upon.
