Welcome to episode 9 of The People-Led Podcast, we chat with HomeServe's Group People Director, the brilliant Kate Keyworth, about bringing people back into the workplace after a year of working from home, and discuss talent, customer and strategy!
In episode 8 we welcome Tom Grinyer, the Chief Executive Officer of The British Medical Association. The BMA is the trade union and professional body for Doctors in the UK, with over 160,000 members.
Tom talks to us about the tremendous journey he has made through his career, from his university degree in politics and economics, HR Management Consultancy roles, to his work in parliamentary research and the BMA . We discuss how the different roles and learnings throughout Tom's career have helped to shape him as a 'People-Led' CEO.
"One of the key things when looking back at my career is taking opportunities whenever they come along, and at other times, taking risks and really making the most of them!" - Tom Grinyer.
In this episode, we talk to Richard Bevan, CEO of the League Manager's Association (LMA), who represents a total of 560 professional managers in 30 countries around the world.
Richard discusses the LMA being an institute of leadership and high performance, and that well-being is at the forefront of every decision. During the interview, we find out more about his role, the company, and some all-important questions, such as:
"From the managers you have worked with, who do you think would make the step into running a business as a people-led CEO and why?"
We talk to Bev White, CEO of Harvey Nash Group, to find out her insights into what she feels it takes to be people-led. We cover topics such as communication, engagement, purpose, trust, and most importantly, her choice of biscuit.

In this fantastic and in-depth interview, Peter shares some very interesting insight into the role of the People Leader during the pandemic.
