Hello Ros, 

Colourful Radio in London interviewed me recently on challenges in the workplace and how to overcome these and build fulfilling careers.

The warm and welcoming Julius Mbaluto and Faye Rowlands of the show "Global Conversations" asked me about how I became a coach, having a career in law, parental expectations of career, the "always-on" culture and how to get balance, dealing with difficult bosses, receiving criticism, career change, mentoring and more in this hour-long interview.

07:08 How the question "What do you really want to do with your life" led to me retraining from law to journalism, and then coaching.
