Episode 1 - with Seyi Akiwowo, Founder of Glitch
After a three month hiatus, we are back with series 5 of the podcast!
Not only do we have a brand new sponsor this series (hello Pleo!), we also have a pretty special line up of guests over the next few weeks so brace yourselves because there are some incredible stories coming your way!
I had to start series 5 with today's guest because quite simply, she's a force to be reckoned with. Her name is Seyi Akiwowo and she's the Founder of Glitch or as she goes on to say in this episode, her "oops baby" - a UK based charity recognised internationally for working to make the online space safe for all... who just so happens to be our charity partner too!
Recorded back in November - a giant thank you to Seyi for her patience getting this one out - we sat down to chat about everything from the series of events at the hands of both trolls and social media platforms that led Seyi to get Glitch off the ground; how she went about growing a team and learning to lead from a place of love instead of fear; the relationship she's been on with money over the years and why she sees her old debt as a battle scar. Not to mention the power of tuning in to watch Neighbours at lunchtime, and why she's determined to ensure that Glitch is trauma informed but not trauma led...
If you haven't checked Glitch out, I couldn't recommend their work more. This is Seyi's story so far!
Say hello to our new sponsor, Pleo...
The She can. She did. podcast is hosted by Fiona Grayson (that's me, hello!) and this series is sponsored by the incredible team at Pleo (aka. the multi-award winning business spending solution built for forward-thinking teams) who are offering all She can.

Say hello to this week's ad guest...
Not only have Pleo sponsored this series but they've also handed the mic over to members of She can. She did. so that they can promote their businesses in Pleo's ad space... what legends, we know! This week, you'll hear from our amazing member Lauren, Founder of Pilates East - the home of pilates in Norwich, Norfolk and beyond.
The good old social handles should you fancy a further peek...

PS. Given that this was recorded in lockdown, there's a few wifi issues where we ran into a few technical hiccups (!) so please do take those with a pinch of salt when they crop up!
