#3 Business Etiquette Survival- Mistakes in Japan, Chinese Gift Giving, Michelle Obama / Queen
We take a world tour with Julia Esteve Boyd a Business & Social Etiquette Consultant! We covered so much in this podcast such as big mistakes in Japan,  the importance of patience in Mexico, ordering food correctly in India, surviving gift giving and dining in China, world class handshakes and…did Michelle Obama get it wrong with the Queen?! This episode also explores the concept that etiquette could well be the key differentiator for your business as we become more global in our work. Also, how much it pays to do your research up front before travelling to different cultures…and being flexible to different cultural preferences.

#2 The Legend of Belbin / High Performing Teams / Boris Johnson, J K Rowling & Gordon Ramsey
In Episode #2 Michael Costello speaks with Jo Keeler from Belbin - the world leading experts on team theory and developing high performing teams.  Jo has 18 years experience of working with Belbin - advising companys globally on their teamwork challenges.   Thank-you so much to Jo for her time. She provides an incredible sense of passion for the topic of teamwork whilst treating it with the seriousness that is deserves.  The episode explores the story of Belbin and how the world famous "Belbin Team Roles" were created (you can see a link to the 9 Team Roles that are evident in high performing teams below as well as the resources available).  The discussion explores individuals from the public eye such as Boris Johnson, Gordon Ramsey and J.K Rowling to identify their Team Role (according to Jo) helping bring the framework to life. Focus is also centred on what key skills leaders need to perfect to develop a high performing team as well as how to drive "Psychological Safety" in teams - a term developed as a result of research by Google ("Project Aristotle").  We explore the topic of organisational culture and team roles in relation to the NHS as well as the usual listener's questions (Q: Do Belbin Team Roles Always Play Out As They Should (Question from The Belbinator!") Q: What are the applications of Belbin? Q: Is Belbin still as relevant today as it was in the 1970s? Q: I need help with my football team, what should I do (Charlie, Aged 8)?

#1 Sales & Marketing Guru to Cadburys and Home Shopping Channels Tony Camp!
Wow! What a first episode! A little longer than expected but some great content on  What lessons can businesses learn from bigger brands such as Cadbury's to help sell and market their products? Why on earth did Cadbury's think recording a gorrila playing the drums was a good idea to generate sales? What was the Cadbury's workplace culture like and has this changed since the take-over by Kraft? Will this take-over impact the brand?  What makes a great sales person on a home shopping channel & how do they sell the more unusual items! What are critical success factors that contribute to a successul product launch  Thank-you so much to Tony for his time. If you enjoyed the podcast please like and share!
