Series 1, Episode 1
Reset The Podcast, with Suki Thompson, Founder and CEO of Let’s Reset, launches in January 2021 at POWER UP Festival. The Reset Podcast Series is for anyone who cares about wellbeing at work and at home. A series of personally intimate and professionally revealing stories that are designed to inspire, engage and inform. Lyre’s non-alcoholic spirits are sponsoring this Podcast Series which kicks off with Suki’s interview with Paul Pomroy, the CEO of McDonald’s in the UK and Ireland. A fascinating exploration of how his childhood impacted his adulthood both personally and professionally. The rest of the ten part series sees people from the worlds of business, politics, and even royalty.
Inspired by the number of celebrities, sports-people and high-profile stars coming forward to talk about mental health, Suki Thompson noticed that very few business people were doing the same. As a result, LET’S RESET was conceived and created to highlight mental heath’s relationship to business and commercial success. Alongside anecdotes and messages from top business, marketing leaders and entrepreneurs LET’S RESET sees Suki share her own transformation story, with top tips and practical advice around mental health, wellbeing and resilience. Specially commissioned portraits of all contributors to the book have been taken by Rankin. They aim to show the ‘real selves’ behind the people and explore the modern preoccupation with issues such as FOMO [Fear of Missing Out] in both their professional and public lives.
