Ian is a clinical software specialist with a passionate belief in technology's potential to improve the way we deliver healthcare.  He has worked in healthcare ICT for 14 years and have seen some of the best and the worst applications of technology to solve healthcare challenges - from a basis of fully understanding the problems first.

We have to know that before we decide how to affect the change and what we need to deliver.

It has been a great pleasure to share with you this passionate conversation with Ian - enjoy

The business vision is based around improving the current model of healthcare through the innovative use of technology, particularly employing artificial intelligence (AI), to support, develop, & change how health & social care is delivered.

We believe in creating systems that allow healthcare providers to have the best IT foundations they can build on and continue to use in the future.

When we develop new technology, we don’t just rely on IT know-how. We actively engage with those whose work will be directly affected by our products. In order to inform the best possible system we can.

This has been our most emotionally challenging podcast to put out. If like us you've been moved by the brutal killing on George Floyd by US police officers then you will also realise that Racism is still prevalent despite our technological advancements, and relative peace and prosperity. In fact many would argue that Racism never died, but has has taken on a new alias. 

Today we shine a light on Racism, it's creation and its roots. Then we explore the possible solutions that will enable us all to live together in the spirit of the late Dr Martin Luther King JNR.

 

Tune in and engage - Racism Who's problem is it?  

 

RIP George Floyd your legacy lives on.

 

ALL is ONE!

Philip Cox-Hynd on Change by Choice, Mindfulness and Radical Leadership #46

Philip Cox-Hynd on Change by Choice, Mindfulness and Radical Leadership #46

May 8, 2020

Do you hate change, or love it? - It depends whether the change is imposed (like tax) or chosen (like marriage) - Philip Cox-Hynd

I reached out to Philip via LinkedIn and was delighted he agreed to be the show. This podcast was serendipitously inspiring, Philip provided a master class in his approach to change management with key lessons we can apply to our own lives.

Philip's approach is refreshing as it turns on its head the outdated and sadly still practiced change transformation methodologies that rely heavily on top-down power, enforced and disempowering change initiatives. Instead, Philips approach is bringing about 'Change by Choice' by:

  1. Vision: Developing and communicating a vision clearly and often, so everyone could see what the future held.
  2. Power: Establishing a powerful guiding coalition, involving all those people who had a hold on the reins.
  3. Engagement: Enthusing staff to choose to be agents of change by first nurturing mindfulness and then spotlighting the gap to be crossed.
  4. Involvement: Organising volunteers to draw up and be advocates for a change manifesto. People support what they help create.
  5. Measurement: Setting early-win and longer-term goals and validating progress promptly in line with their fast-response culture.

Philip implemented this approach at Ella's Kitchen now worth £100m, whose founder commended our change management for setting them up to continue their exceptional growth in "a better-managed and more focused way."

PHILIP'S BACKGROUND

Based in Henley-on-Thames UK, Harley Young is an implementational consultancy, comprised of change gladiators!

The co-founder, Philip Cox-Hynd, dovetails his expertise in human development with strategy and process improvement.

In the human development field, his expertise was gained leading public seminars for Exegesis (the UK version of Landmark Forum) in the 1980s, working with the Human Awareness Institute of California, as well as collaborating with John Grinder, co-formulator of NLP.

Philip combined this expertise with insights gained working with the inventors of business process re-engineering, work on strategy at Henley Business School UK, as well as hands-on experience on client projects over 25 years, delivering lasting corporate change.

This combination led to Philip becoming a strategic and cultural change management expert and, through his company, Harley Young, he has designed and implemented growth-led change programs for large and small corporations such as Barclays, Pfizer, Microsoft, Arup and Ella's Kitchen.

Philip is a Vipassana meditator - Vipassana is the origin of mindfulness - and he started this discipline in 2003, continuing to this day.

In 2019, Philip authored a book Mindfulness and the Art of Change by Choice: Radical Leadership for Managing Change.

A must-read for anyone seeking to master change.

 

Sit back, tune in and enjoy, this podcast will make your life Boom!

Thank you Philip - This will be a classic Show!

Fiona Small - 5 Ways to Corona Proof Your Business Plus so much more #45

May 2, 2020

I rarely find myself taking the backseat and lost for words, however on this occasion my feelings are well-founded. I've had the pleasure of interviewing the award-winning mentor, speaker and entrepreneur Fiona Small for the show. This being a conversation long overdue, and well worth the wait. Fiona drops pearls of wisdom from start to finish to keep you motivated and inspired during this lockdown and beyond.

Fiona replays her journey, discovering her ‘WHY’ and answering to her calling, revealing the hidden motivators to her abundant drive, resilience and laser-like focus. Fiona shares how she has assumed responsibilities that many have shied away from – this journey has taken her around the world where she has received numerous awards. Never frightened to stick her head above the parapet, whether it is standing up for women’s rights, social justice and economic empowerment for women.

This interview has something for every aspiring entrepreneur at a time when staying relevant, buoyant and connected has never been more important. Including a special teaser from her forthcoming eBook 5 Ways to Corona Proof Your Business.

We look forward too many more collaborations with Fiona and welcome her to The Mic Drop Club family.

Background

Fiona Small is a motivational speaker and entrepreneur. She is also the founder and director of the Young Mums Support Network (YMSN) CIC which has been going strong for the last 10 years. Helping young mums develop the skills to empower them to make better, informed decisions concerning their lives and relationships.

Teaching young mums about self-worth and developing their employability skills by providing tailored career advice across a range of industries has increased their confidence and aspirations of what they can achieve.

Fiona has featured as a guest on panel debates, round tables and mastermind groups to spread her message and has recently launched The Female Founders Club for founders of social enterprise. 

As a solo parent of two children, Fiona became familiar with navigating the challenges of returning to work part-time and taking the inevitable pay cut that comes with juggling professional life and parenthood.

SHAME: How to Overcome the Most Destructive Human Behaviours (Part 1:8) #44

SHAME: How to Overcome the Most Destructive Human Behaviours (Part 1:8) #44

April 30, 2020

Welcome to Part 1:8 of a series of shows focused on the hidden factors behind human behaviour.

In order to achieve our own goals. It is important that we able to reflect without bias on our own behaviours and emotions, seeking to understand its root cause and how to overcome them. All too often people fail to reach their optimum potential because they are stuck in a loop of limiting emotions that drives non-productive/constructive behaviours.

Equally, to become better communicators, it is vital we pay heightened attention to the signals a person is displaying as these can reveal their underlying emotions and processes to manage them.

In this show we unpack the lowest level of emotion which shame. This emotion is rarely discussed, as the people tend prioritise other high-profile states of emotions such as Anxiety, Depression and Anger. To support this series, we shall be inviting guests’ speakers to delve deeper on the subject to help you to support yourself or others seeking to overcome their emotions:

Copy_of_Untitled_6_.jpg

1. Shame
2. Blame
3. Despair
4. Regret
5. Anxiety
6. Craving
7. Hate
8. Scorn

Shame is an unpleasant self-conscious emotion typically associated with a negative evaluation of the self; withdrawal motivations; and feelings of distress, exposure, mistrust, powerlessness, and worthlessness.

Don’t be limited,

Enjoy don’t just Live life, Make Life BOOM!
