Episode 102: 13th February 2020

Publicity vs privacy, psychopaths and Portugese banker Antonio Horta-Osorio occupy our minds this week.

As the time of recording  Valentine’s Day looms large, things are less than harmonious in the Prime Minister’s Cabinet reshuffle and stormy weather wreaks havoc across the land we  take a look at what it means to have a both public and private personae. Can real life ever be separated from our online presence and how do we manage this when it comes to profile and reputation?

Although Jeff Bezos has a new house, everyone (well 2billion of us) are hanging out on Whatsapp  and retailers are calling for an overhaul of the business rates system the ONS have published a report that focuses on personal and economic well being in the UK and it makes for interesting reading.

Tracy discloses her recent night time reading has included the study of psychopaths and it appears that the movie makers have been leading us us the garden path with their portrayal of the violent psychopath. Heather shares details of a recent CIPD at which the speaker was Shakil Butt and a presentation that focused attention on what we mean by ‘inclusion’ in general and in the workplace.

As mental health at work continues to be of growing importance on the business agenda we take time to discuss the experiences of Antonio Horta-Osorio, Group Chief Executive of Lloyds Banking Group. Osorio has spoken very candidly about his battle with mental ill health during a very stressful stage of his high profile career and encourages us to take time to heal.
