Let's Do The Right Thing

Let's Do The States Thing with Keisha Townsend Taitt

Season 4, Ep. 30

As a business you believe in diversity. You keep it in mind, you applaud it when you see others doing it well, and you never miss an opportunity to share your support. But, if you don't walk the walk, you're in danger of losing more than your reputation. What you need right now is two things; firstly, the courage to never be afraid to ask, and secondly, this roots to branch conversation with the wonderfully inspiring Keisha Townsend Taitt. It's forty of the most important minutes in your life that you'll never regret giving up, and a vital reminder to us all that, a little like JFK's inaugural address, we should all be asking ourselves, not what inclusion can do for our brands, but what our brands can do for inclusion. Presented by Adam Hopkinson.

If you believe that doing something you enjoy is the key to setting up a successful business, then this episode will unlock everything.https://www.pashn.media/https://radioworks.co.uk/https://www.maplestreetcreative.co.uk/Recorded November 23
