Our guest this episode is Marcus Kingwell, CEO of EMD UK.

Marcus has amassed more than a decade of experience leading organisations including Welsh Cycling, AoC Sport, the Institute for Sports, Parks and Leisure and sports-based consultancies with both a national and an international reach.

During the episode we discuss Marcus’ early life and career and how being made redundant without notice was a turning point and the catalyst to start his own consulting business.

We also reflect on his approach to change management and how his perspective on leadership has developed throughout his career.
