Honeycomb Group’s Chief Executive, Diane Thompson, took part in a podcast with The Leaders Council, to speak about leadership and the role it has played in her career.

Joining the episode was former professional footballer, Geoff Hurst speaking about football, his career and leadership.

The episode is part of a series ran by the Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, talking to leadership figures from across the nation about leadership and what it means in the UK today.

Diane Thompson said: “It’s great to be involved in the Leaders Council podcast because it’s so important to share leadership thoughts to support each other, even more so at this time.”

Matthew O'Neill commented, ‘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 industry sector, is an absolute honour.’

Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O'Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their 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.’
