Nathan Gambling is a heating engineer and lecturer who has taught in colleges and a prison. As well as industry, teaching and assessing qualifications he has a psychology degree in Behavioural studies and is regarded as a leading expert around training and the learning process within plumbing and heating.  He has a remarkable heritage within the heating industry: As central heating first started to take hold it was his grandfather who brought Swedish oil burner technology to the UK and was the UK's leading oil combustion expert venerated throughout Europe. His great uncle was lead engineer and European Energy manager for Unilever and his dad was a technical rep for Trianco Redfyre who back in the 80s was the UK's leading boiler manufacture.He sometimes works with his cousin who is the UK's leading acoustic sensitive heating and ventilation engineer installing and maintaining the comfort cooling and heating systems in some of the world's best recording and post production facilities here in the UK.  Nathan often jokes that some of the radio/tv stations who've had guests on dismissing heat pumps are actually sitting in facilities heated and cooled with heat pump technology his cousin's engineers installed, and that if heat pumps were that noisy you'd hear them on some of the world's most famous record albums."He currently hosts the award winning low carbon and renewable heating podcast BetaTalk and provides consultancy. He is regarded as knowing who the best engineers in the UK are and has helped senior figures in the energy discourse find competent engineers for their own homes. He is also able to help local authorities receiving money from the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund understand who the competent suppliers are on their Dynamic Purchasing Systems Further reading:Depherhttps://www.depher.co.uk/Miriam Violet Griffithhttps://twitter.com/MLiebreich/status/1480645001155858433https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Miriam_Violet_GriffithBetaTeachhttps://www.betateach.co.uk/

If you've been on LinkedIn recently, it's likely that someone you know has liked something that our next guest has written - because her posts are just THAT GOOD. But it wasn't just her LinkedIn activism that made us want to sit down with her today - it was some impactful articles that she wrote, including one for Cosmopolitan in 2019 and one for the Harvard Business Review in 2021, that made us excited to talk about something that we haven't really touched on, on the podcast to date: colorism. If you're sitting there asking yourself, what is colorism, or what does that have to do with race, systemic racism, and how we look at people - then marketing and advertising, as we've known it to always exist in the United States, has largely been doing its job. But that doesn't mean it's the right job - in fact, today, we're going to talk all about why it's so important to understand colorism as a fundamental piece of our systems that affect us all (like racism), and also the very personal impact that it can have on people. We're here to learn in 2022, and to keep asking those questions that make us think deeper and challenge what we've always been told. Have questions, comments, or concerns? Email us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com What to listen for: What is colorism? How colorism has impacted Mita personally, as she shares in her piece in Cosmopolitan The clear ways that the marketing industry still has a problem, as she writes in Harvard Business Review  Other industries that need to be aware of the impact of our bias towards lighter skin About Mita: Mita Mallick is a corporate change-maker with a track record of transforming businesses.  She gives innovative ideas a voice and serves customers and communities with purpose.  She is currently the Head of Inclusion, Equity and Impact at Carta. She was formerly the Head of Inclusion and Cross Cultural Marketing at Unilever.  She has had an extensive career as a marketer in the beauty and consumer product goods space.  Mallick is a LinkedIn Top Voice, a contributor for Entrepreneur and Harvard Business Review, and her writing has been published in Adweek, Fast Company and Business Insider. She is also the cohost of the recently launched The Brown Table Talk Podcast, where she and Dee Marshall share stories and tips on how to help Women of Color win at work, and advice for allies on how they can show up.   Buy our book, Dear White Women: Let's Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism, and leave us a review on Amazon!

Profits should come not from creating the world's problems but from solving them. Companies must ask themselves: Is the world better off because your business is in it? These are just a few of the urgent and inspiring lessons offered by the globally renowned sustainable business author and advisor Andrew Winston in his recent book, “Net Positive: Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take,” co-authored with Paul Polman, the visionary former CEO of Unilever.In this episode, host Gil Jenkins speaks with Andrew about the principles and practices of net positive companies that are outlined elegantly and colorfully in his seminal new book. Gil and Andrew talked at length about the growth of clean energy and sustainable businesses, what ultimately convinced Andrew to write his fourth book on the subject, and what makes his co-author's journey so compelling and instructive for others. They also discussed the Golden Rule, why corporate climate advocacy is so important, the failure of shareholder primacy, and a whole lot more. We hope you enjoy this spirited conversation on how businesses can prosper while also helping to confront the massive dual challenges of climate change and rampant inequality. Links:Andrew's Website Book: Net Positive Andrew on TwitterAndrew on LinkedInArticle: Sustainable Business Went Mainstream in 2021 (Andrew Winston, December 27, 2021)Article: Companies Must Find the Courage to Back Up Statements on Climate Action (Andrew Winston and Paul Polman, September 7, 2021)Episode recorded: December 15, 2021

Today we talk about an issue that concerns over 100 million young people in Europe. During the pandemic our podcast guest, a couples therapist, was approached by many millennials who were struggling with their relationship skills. Even though the needs and situations were all quite different, Katharina Wäschenbach realised they could be resolved using the functional tools of couples therapy. But this needed a twist, because couples therapy is: (1) for two and not a coaching for one person. (2) highly stigmatised and suggests something is wrong that needs to be fixed. (3) is not easily accessed. Her conclusion: There is a huge demand that needed a digital solution. So she founded Dearest, a relationship wellness app for millennials. Before stepping into the digital health business, Katharina worked in HR and Recruiting for companies like heycar, Foodspring and Unilever. With her new won passion for bringing the communication skills needed for thriving relationships to people, she is on the mission to democratise relationship health. Tune in to find out:

Atlanta, a monthly meet-up designed to empower, educate, and advise on sustainable and profitable real estate business. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Brandon earned his corporate stripes working for international brands, including the Kraft Heinz Company and Unilever. An undergraduate from Georgia State University, Brandon gained his degree in Operations Management from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University, where he also earned his Entrepreneur Certificate. Born in Chicago and raised in Stone Mountain, Brandon now resides in Atlanta with his wife and four children. Brandon joins me today to discuss his journey into real estate that began in 2016 when he abruptly fell off the corporate ladder and needed a solution to provide for his new wife and baby. He shares his early cold calling strategies and why the first 'NO' is not the final 'NO," and why you shouldn't be burning through your cold call list too quickly. He reveals why hiring an Acquisition Manager was a game-changer in his selling method and what automated offer delivery systems can do for your numbers. Brandon also explains his three C's, Consistency, Continuous Learning & Development, and Coaching, and how these have been the bedrock of his rapid real estate success. "I got out of my own way by putting an acquisition manager in place to send offers without appointments. And once we started to do that, our goal is 50 offers a week. We really started to see some really strong results." – Brandon Barnes "A cold caller needs to have their own set of follow-ups of people that immediately said 'No Not Interested' but they're going to come back to them because that is going to even out the amount of leads that they're generating over time." – Brandon Barnes "Sending 50 offers is one thing but being able to follow up on all the offers that you sent is the other piece." – Brandon Barnes "Literally, I hired acquisition manager in November - it was around Thanksgiving when I did the interview. And that next year we went from making like 280 to 950 within that business, plus I had my own deals going on at the same time" – Brandon Barnes This week on Flip Talk: How Brandon adapted his direct mail strategy for amazing returns How an Acquisition Manager can help in ramping up offers Why your cold call technique might not be working Why the follow up is the vital Part Two of your strategy How to get your offer and their price in the same ballpark What an automated offer delivery system can do for your sales outcome Brandon's Three C's for REI Connect with Brandon Barnes: Send More Offers Website REI LIVE!

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein in 1892. Orphaned before he was a teenager, he fought at the Somme in World War One before going on to become one of the best-selling authors of all time. Bilbo, Gandalf, Gollum, Frodo, Sauron - these are just a few of the famous characters he created for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Nominating Tolkien - an Oxford University professor - is the popular historian, Niall Ferguson. He aims to rescue Tolkien from the hippies, who, he says, claimed Tolkien as their own. "The fascinating thing to me about Tolkien is that his sensibility is so profoundly conservative - with a small 'c'. ...when you look at the man's politics, he was such a reactionary!" Presenter Matthew Parris, who doesn't believe in elves or dwarves, is not so sure that the fantasy author deserves to be rescued. With additional help and guidance from Malcolm Guite. Niall Ferguson is senior fellow of the Hoover Institution and author of Empire: How Britain made the Modern World. The producer for BBC Audio in Bristol is Ellie Richold. Future episodes in this series include Rory Sutherland on Johnny Ramone; Nina Sosanya on Jeanne Baret, the first woman to circumnavigate the globe; and the boss of Iceland, Richard Walker, on William Lever, one of the founders of Unilever plc

When Paul Polman joined Unilever as CEO in 2009, the consumer goods company – home to 400-plus brands including Dove soap, Ben & Jerry's, and Vaseline – had been stagnated with years of lackluster performance. His famous turnaround of the company centered around his ability to redraw the boundaries of Unilever's mission to emphasize sustainability and long-term growth. He's a perfect example of why every leader should consistently reexamine the boundaries that limit their business – and be prepared to redraw them as you grow. By redrawing boundaries, you can reinvigorate your team with a new sense of power. As Polman says, “You cannot change people's behaviors if you only work on the purpose – and don't change the boundaries around it that drive people's behavior.”Read a transcript of this episode: https://mastersofscale.comSubscribe to the Masters of Scale weekly newsletter: http://eepurl.com/dlirtXSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Seriously…
Could I Regenerate My Farm To Save The Planet?

Seriously…

Regenerative Farming is gaining traction around the world as a means of increasing biodiversity, improving soil quality, sequestering carbon, restoring watersheds and enhancing the ecosystems of farms. The shepherd James Rebanks, author of English Pastoral, is on a quest to find out if it is possible to adopt these methods on his farm in the Lake District. He meets leading proponents of these methods in the UK, US and Europe and discovers how mimicking natural herd movements, stopping ploughing and adding costly chemicals could make his farm economically sustainable. This is becoming an urgent question as not only is the global population projected to rise to nearly 10 billion by 2050 but according to the UN's Food and Agriculture organisation within 60 years we may literally no longer have enough arable topsoil to feed ourselves. Meanwhile our reliance on meat products is being blamed for increasing CO2 and climate change. But can James,and indeed other farmers, make the switch to these techniques when industrial farming has been the paradigm for so long? When so many people believe turning vegan and shifting to plant-based ecological farming is the way forward, should he continue breeding sheep and cows? And as companies like Nestle, Walmart, Unilever, McCain and Pepsi all pledge to invest in regenerative farming to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, do the claims about carbon sequestration stand up? How can he use his farm to save the planet?
