Episode 109: 2nd April 2020

The Circular Economy, Online Learning, Men At Work, Little Wins and Julian Hearn of Huel keep our focus away from Covid19 this week.

For many  years now business corporate social responsibility and the environment have been climbing higher and higher up the agenda and this week, amidst all the madness, we take a look at what has become known as The Circular Economy. The idea of leaving nothing behind (or at least the bare minimum) had created a number of new businesses, new ways of thinking and improved collaboration. One man’s waste is another man’s fodder.

If you are interested in the mechanics of it all you might like to pop along to The Waste and Resources Action Programme (which operates as WRAP) and if you want to improve raise your game, think creatively and outside of the box The Ellen McArthur Foundation has lots of case studies and free resources to prompt ideas.  Tracy also mentioned a TED Talk by Dame Ellen and a learning resource called edEx.

With many of us working from home at the moment, we take a look at how plants can create a great working environment and flag up a free resource from Best Companies to keep tabs on how your staff are fairing under the current working regime.

Our review section looks at a cracking book by Peter Lindley called Little Wins: The Huge Power Of Thinking Like A Toddler which encourages us to take baby steps when creating or expanding our business activities and we discuss morale boosting tips for strong leadership.

Our business leader this week is entrepreneur business founder and the leading player in the brand Huel. Once upon a time meal replacements were the things of diet books and weight loss but no more. Julian Hearn built a brand of meal supplements that are part of every day life for a sector of the population (not women of a certain age like Tracy and Heather) and business is booming.
