BONUS Why your story matters and how to find purpose with Mark Leruste

Most people are afraid of what others might think or say if they showed up as their true authentic selves. Especially in a business context. That’s why so many of us are terrified of sharing our story authentically in public and struggle to make a lasting impact when introducing ourselves. 


But what if you could effortlessly enroll and engage your audience every time you introduced yourself be it at work, on stage or even on a podcast?


To talk about this, I have a good friend of mine on the podcast, Mark Leruste. He was previously Country Manager of The Movember Foundation, he has an award winning podcast ‘The Unconventionalists’ and has an inspiring TEDx talk.


Mark is on a mission to eradicate career misery in the workplace for the next generation of leaders by helping organisations and those who lead them clarify their purpose to better lead and inspire their people, and share their story more powerfully so the world listens.

 

His book “Glow In The Dark” is a guide to learn how to raise your profile and impact the world with your story.


But why are stories important? I’ll be honest, I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to words like being your true, authentic self. What does this actually mean? I learnt a lot from Mark.

  • #233 Processed food, sugar, spices and British Colonial History with Sathnam Sanghera

    01:02:15
    Sathnam Sanghera’s journalism has covered far reaching topics including racism, homophobia and even pianos in train stations which he bizarrely doesn't like. But when he decided to turn his attention to Empire and Britain’s colonial history, the backlash he received from the public and even some historians was fierce and unnerving. In fact, Sathnam has received abuse online, ridicule and even death threats.As a person of Indian heritage with their roots in the divided provinces of Punjab and Bengal, I thought I knew a lot about British history. But I didn’t realise how little I knew until I read Empireland and watched some of Sathnam’s incredible documentaries on Channel 4.Today we tell the story of British Imperialism through the lens of food. Spices, Sugar, Potatoes, Cauliflower and even processed food. These are all ingredients I thought I knew about! But when you dig a little deeper you can uncover just how incredible our past is and what we can learn from. As we negotiate a new relationship with the wider world, it’s never been more important to understand the nuance of our national history. At no point in todays discussion do we refer to Empire as either good or bad. Like the weather or our relationship with our immediate family, it’s complicated. I also think the medium of social media is the wrong place to have these discussions that require compassion instead of judgement as we wrestle with uncomfortable and sometimes brutal historical truths. I hope todays discussion will enable you to cherish food in a new light that appreciates its complicated past, as well as how grateful we should be for the variety and selection that adorns our market shelves.Sathnam Sanghera was born to Punjabi immigrant parents in Wolverhampton in 1976. He entered the education system unable to speak English but went on to graduate from Christ's College, Cambridge with a first class degree in English Language and Literature. He has been shortlisted for the Costa Book Awards twice, for his memoir The Boy With The Topknot and his novel Marriage Material. Empireland has been longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction, was named a Book of the Year at the National Book Awards of 2022, and inspired both the Channel 4 series Empire State of Mind and Sanghera's children's book about the British empire Stolen History.🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeYou can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.

  • BONUS Comfort Cooking and Joyful Food with Ravinder Bhogal

    36:27
    One of the best experiences I had in a restaurant was when I sat at a table in Marylebone (London), decorated with floral cloths and comfy pillows. Nestling into my seat I was struck by beautiful spicy notes, warming ginger that mirrored the welcome from the maître d'. Perusing the menu, almost everything was a blend of cultures, cuisines and flavours. Dishes that are so unfamiliar, yet deserve to have a home. This restaurant and cooking style, which is proudly inauthentic, feels deeply authentic and full of love, and you can understand why when you learn about the experience of its founder, Ravinder Bhogal.Ravinder is a journalist, chef and restaurateur, who was born in Kenya to Indian parents. She’s a monthly food columnist for the FT Weekend magazine and The Guardian’s Feast magazine, a contributing editor at Harper’s Bazaar, and regularly writes for The Observer Magazine and Vogue online. Basically one of the most influential women in food.Jikoni is one of my favourite restaurants and now ‘Comfort and Joy’ (Ravinders 3rd book) is one of my new favourites too! It’s one of those cookbooks to read, but also one that deserves to have its pages stained and spattered. Ravinder’s commitment to lavish vegetables with the same joy and creativity you’d bring to a steak or a chop has resulted in a globally-inspired collection of recipes.There are fragrant and fortifying curries and stews including a mango and golden coin curry; hefty salads packed with fistfuls of good things such as heritage tomato salad with lime leaf dressing, ginger and chilli. Basically this is the kind of food I want to eat all the time. I ask Ravinder about how she conjures recipes and why cooking is the ultimate expression of love. I think you’ll love this chat.🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeYou can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.
