What else is on our mind this week? We're thinking about diversity! 


Our latest podcast episode with Warwick Hunt, COO of PwC UK is out and our founder and CEO, Kike Oniwinde, is discussing diversity in all its ways - diverse organisations, diverse opportunities and diversity of thought, and why it's essential that companies need to continue to think outside of the box.


From career advice for millenials, to what board members should be doing in the boardroom to change their workforce, there's some pearls of wisdom here. 

You can listen on iTunesSoundcloudBuzzsprout Spotify.

We hope you enjoy reading!
