On this podcast, Sean Doyle joined me in the studio. Sean was crowned CEO of Aer Lingus in January 2019 after over 20 years working with British Airways. In 2018, Aer Lingus recorded an annual turnover of €2.2 billion and with 4,000 employees to look after, his job must be somewhat interesting. It was an absolute pleasure to chat with Sean & I can’t thank him enough for taking the time to come in.

Using her own experience of transforming her lifestyle, Alice has inspired a shift in the modern-day consumer’s attitude to healthy eating and exercise.

On this week’s podcast, I traveled down to Stamford Bridge Stadium, the home of the mighty Chelsea Football Club to meet Carl Southwell. Carl is the enterprise manager at the Chelsea FC Foundation. The Chelsea FC Foundation works on a broad range of initiatives focusing on entrepreneurship, social deprivation, crime reduction, youth offending and much more. Carl has set-up a concept called ‘The Edge Of The Box Club’ within the foundation and it aims to help start-up entrepreneurs with business support, idea generation and all the other components involved in getting a business off the ground. Many football clubs are criticized for ‘forgetting the about locals’, however, at Chelsea FC it seems to be different.

On this podcast, I recorded a business meeting I had with Jonathan Wilson from Wilson Douglas Wine Investments. I’ve known Jonathan for a while now and we’ve had many interesting chats about marketing in the past. The two of us are potentially going to work together on some email & content strategies for his business. I think this ‘behind the scenes’ content may provide value for listeners who are interested in digital growth & strategies. I hope you really enjoy the show.

On the show, we discussed everything from the rapid growth of the company to copyright infringement issues to social media strategies.

In this episode, I decided to go the solo route and discuss an area of marketing & social media that I feel needs more publicity. I still feel that brands are using social media the same way they used newspapers & billboards back in the ’90s. I think it really comes down to two reasons: 1. Fear of creativity 2. Lack of commitment. Many brands still opt for the old push strategy which I think adds no real value to the end consumer.
