Welcome to Episode Forty Nine (Season Three) of the Executive Career Jump Podcast with your host, Andrew MacAskill!
This week’s episode is a little different as it was a “live” with two of my fellow LinkedIn Changemakers Neil Laybourn and Sonya Barlow discussing how the world of work is changing like never before and what does version 2.0 looks and feel like. It was great to welcome lots of people from the ECJ community and discuss their questions with my fellow Changemakers.
Neil started his career as a Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer however his life changed forever in 2008 when he talked a man down off a bridge who was contemplating suicide. Since then he has spent time helping organisations eradicate the stigma of mental health. He was recognised by the Pride of Britain Awards in 2014 for his work. Today he is helping companies large and small to understand and action their mental health and wellbeing plans.
