The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand what leadership means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.

Susanna Jones, Chief Executive of Swindon Carers Centre, was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Lord Blunkett.

Presenter Jonathan White comments, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial sector, is an absolute honour.’

Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland says, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Jonathan White is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their sector or industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’

SCC CEO Susanna Jones says “We are delighted to be involved in this podcast to spread the word about the work we do at Swindon Carers Centre and raise awareness of unpaid carers in our communities and wider society. Carers are experts in our health and social care systems and it’s vital to recognise and acknowledge what they do and enable them to have a break from their caring roles.”
