Round up of some of our favourite Influential Leader interviews – Part Two

2017 was an incredibly busy year for us all here at Mind over Matter.

We have been busy relaunching our website and also, back in August, we began our weekly Influential Leaders interviews which have been a huge success and taken us into all kinds of fields seeing what makes people tick and how they reach the pinnacles of their respective industries.

This has been hugely enjoyable and such an eye-opener into a huge range of industries, businesses and of course, individuals and we have made new friends along the way.

What do a hostage negotiation expert, HR leader, event agency owner, leadership expert, life transformer for those with neurological conditions as well as a supporter of women in business and finally, a world-renowned dance agency owner and teacher have in common? Meet Andrew Brown, David D’Souza, Christof Huber, Gordon Tredgold, Jan Flawn and Jill Kemp to find out more.

They have all taken part in our Influential Leaders’ interviews on the Mind Over Matter blog.

Find out how these influential people, who we at MOM admire and love to work with, start their day, what their best and worst jobs were, whether or not they feel that leadership is nature or nurture and what guilty pleasures have helped them along the way.
