Following on from the success of our Pedagogy Matters podcast series, CDN is delighted to bring you a new mini podcast series which focuses on the subject of leadership. Leadership Matters will air over the summer period, while our original podcast, Pedagogy Matters, will return after the summer break.

In the first episode of Leadership Matters – which will be released on Wednesday 7 July – Valerie Jackman, CDN Leadership and Governance Lead, speaks to Grant Ritchie, CDN Fellow and former Principal of Dundee and Angus College. Tune in to uncover Grant’s leadership journey, find out what helped and hindered him on his journey, and what advice he would give to emerging leaders.

The second episode, which will be released later in July, is with Anthony Willoughby, author, explorer, and Founder of the Nomadic School of Business. Listen to find out what Anthony has learnt about leadership from living and working with indigenous communities across the world. Valerie and Anthony discuss the importance of personal leadership and the collective, as well as the visionary tool which Anthony uses to help people understand their territory.

The third episode is with Janet Whitley, Collective Leadership Lead at The Scottish Government. Hear about the work of Collective Leadership for Scotland, how the network supports partners and colleagues from across the public sector in the practice of collaboration and collective leadership, and how leaders in the FE sector can get involved.

The fourth and final episode is with Roddy Millar, Founder and CEO of Ideas for Leaders, and co-Founder of the Scottish Leadership Institute. Valerie and Roddy discuss his work as a writer and publisher in the fields of executive education, management, and leadership. Roddy also has experience of working with international business schools and he shines a light on the emerging trends in leadership practice across the world.

Look out for episode one coming very soon…
