Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The New P&L speaks to Tessa Cooper, Founder, Collaborative Future

The future of work looks very different to how we imagined it might be just 12 months ago. All of us - from business leaders, SME employers, employees to those in the contracting and freelance sectors are going to have to creatively reimagine what that future now looks like for work and employment. There are, clearly, many challenges ahead of us, but with change and challenge also comes tremendous opportunity – to recreate, change the power balance and build a new way of working based on collaboration, mutual respect and collective purpose.
This week we speak to Tessa Cooper, Founder and Managing Director of Collaborative Future – a UK-based social enterprise that is focused creating a world of work in which everyone is empowered to thrive. We discuss with Tessa the type of leadership needed to build strong, cohesive cultures in a hybrid working environment, what work could and should look like as we emerge from the pandemic, the importance of social innovation and enterprise, and the inherent contradictions in the ‘Gig economy’.

  • The New P&L TO THE POINT on the Power of Partnerships and Purpose Recorded: Jan 8 2021 11 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    Welcome to our first The New P&L TO THE POINT FOR 2021! The New P&L TO THE POINT is a weekly podcast series where, in around 10 minutes each Friday, we break down the key elements of our weekly The New P&L conversations with industry leaders and entrepreneurs. We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    Today, The New P&L TO THE POINT analyses this week's The New P&L conversation with Hannah Pudner, deputy CEO of international development agency, United Purpose. This episode looks at the power of partnership and purpose and how businesses can reframe the definition of partnership to strengthen the relationship between businesses and their customers. We consider the the importance of purpose in business as a positive binding force and a rallying point for the greater engagement of employees. We also ask what kind of world we want as business people and what we prepared to do to ensure we create a better society and environment for business; as well as considering the real power business leaders have to change the world around them.

    If you enjoyed this episode, take a moment to listen to this week's full The New P&L interview with Hannah Pudner - episode 68.

  • The New P&L speaks to international development agency Deputy CEO, Hannah Pudner Recorded: Jan 6 2021 48 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    There is often a fundamental misconception about nature of the relationship between corporates and their partners in the international development and charity sectors. The misconception is based on the belief that it is largely one way – businesses offering money, resources and expertise and those in the international development and charity sectors simply being the recipients of these.

    However, the reality is far more nuanced and reciprocal than that. These sectors have a huge amount to teach the corporate world about personal and community empowerment, aligning diverse groups of people around a common sense of purpose or cause, as well as how to effectively manage limited budgets to ensure there is a maximum return for both those you are investing in and those you have invested on behalf of. Over the next few years, as a result of the economic challenges placed on businesses by the pandemic, all of these fundamental characteristics will need to be embraced by businesses too if they are to weather the storm and engage and empower their employees in the process.

    This week, we speak to deputy CEO of United Purpose, Hannah Pudner. Based in Wales, UK, United Purpose is global leader in community-led development and grassroots innovation. For more than 40 years, it has worked with frontline activists, community organisations and individuals to help people across the globe gain agency over their own lives - so they can move ‘Beyond Aid’.

    We explore with Hannah the subtleties of the modern relationship between corporates and the charity sector; what moving ‘beyond aid’ actually delivers; the need to understand that ‘not-for-profit’ does not mean ’not-for-loss’; and how the pandemic offers an opportunity to fundamentally and positively change the relationship between donor and recipient at all levels.

    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    This week, The New P&L speaks to serial entrepreneur, host of The 10 Minute Entrepreneur podcast, and best-selling author of 8 Unbreakable Rules for Business Startup Success, The Greatest Entrepreneur in the World, and World’s Greatest Business Plan, Sean Castrina. Sean has launched a new business each year for the last 20 years, so in this episode we took the opportunity to discuss with Sean his thoughts on what successful entrepreneurship looks like. We discussed with Sean the common sets of characteristics successful entrepreneurs share; understanding risk as an entrepreneur; the fundamental differences between the dreaming up of a new idea and the delivery of it and how companies can keep the passion and innovation going after the founder steps back or leaves.
  • The New P&L TO THE POINT: on Values, Habits and Balance in Business Recorded: Dec 22 2020 11 mins

    The New P&L TO THE POINT is a new weekly podcast series where, in around 10 minutes each Friday, we break down the key elements of our The New P&L weekly conversations with industry leaders and entrepreneurs. We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses. As it's Christmas this week, we've published our weekly episode a little early!

    Today, The New P&L TO THE POINT analyses this week's The New P&L conversation with Jen Du Plessis, America’s Mortgage Mastery Mentor. We look at the habitual nature of success and the systems needed to breathe successful thinking into our daily thought processes; the importance of defining and living your values in life and in business; driving decision-making based on facts; and the importance of recognising the difference between principles/strategy and tactics - the need to keep heading in the right direction in business but being flexible enough to change the road to get there when required.

  • The New P&L speaks to America’s Mortgage Mastery Mentor, Jen Du Plessis Recorded: Dec 21 2020 49 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    This week, we speak with Jen Du Plessis. Jen is known as America’s Mortgage Mastery Mentor – a title hard earned over a stellar 37-year career she was consistently listed in the top 1 percent high performer in the US mortgage industry. Jen is also host of two hugely successful podcasts, Mortgage Lending Mastery and Success to Significance – Life After Breaking through Glass Ceiling, and best-selling author of LAUNCH - How to Take Your Business to New Heights. A regular commentator on some of the US most recognised news channels, newspapers and industry journals, Jen is also internationally known as a charismatic keynote speaker.

    Jen's back story is a fascinating one. From very humble beginnings, Jen was adamant she would not let her past determine her future, rose to the very top of her field in a highly competitive and demanding industry, and then went on become a hugely successful speaker, author, and podcast host. Her passion, drive and determination are clear. What surprised us was that despite all this success, Jen's road has also been one of constantly fighting against imposter syndrome, self-doubt and the need to prove herself. A very inspirational 40 minutes of wisdom for entrepreneurs and business people.

We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    Today, The New P&L TO THE POINT analyses this week's The New P&L conversation with self-described 'female Jerry Maguire, Sue Izzo. The New P&L TO THE POINT the importance and value of strong personal relationships as a key competitive advantage; the dangerous, slippery slope that exists for everyone in business – employees, leaders, business owners and entrepreneurs when we – either willfully or subconsciously – let our self-worth be defined solely or largely by the outcomes of the business; whether the pandemic has given many of us the time to take a moment to consider the smaller, but often infinitely more important things in life; and why asking for help is so critical to getting to the top of your profession.

  • The New P&L speaks to Sue Izzo, self-described Female Jerry Maguire & Strategist Recorded: Dec 16 2020 41 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    The path of entrepreneurship is rarely a smooth one. The perceptions so commonly held about the excitement of the entrepreneurial life belie a more pragmatic reality for many - days and days of hard, hard work, hopefully punctuated by pockets of success. As entrepreneurs, we need to ensure that in the drive to achieve, to win in business and become the successful entrepreneur - the narrative portrayed in the media and a multitude of business - we don't just define ourselves and critically, our self-worth, solely by professional success.

    Why? Because on those days, weeks or months that we may not win, what does that narrow self-definition then deliver to us in return? It paradoxically works against us, telling us we are worth less as individuals, because of a temporary professional bump or failure. - the antithesis to what we need in our character to push on as entrepreneurs.

    This week, The New P&L speaks to former self-described female Jerry Maguire and hugely successful entrepreneur, Sue Izzo. Sue founded her own sports management agency at 25 and built it into one of the most successful boutique sports management agencies in the US, managing a host of global sports stars and world champions. After being acquired in 2005, Sue went on to establish herself as a brand strategist and consultant, working with entrepreneurs and companies across the world to refine their brand and amplify their story.

    But, all that incredible success doesn't tell the full story. So, we discuss with Sue the reality behind the challenges of building an entrepreneurial business; the highs and the lows; the risks of defining yourself just by your professional successes; how you balance determination, drive and the need to allow yourself to breathe in the process; and the importance of building relationships not just resources in business.

  • The New P&L TO THE POINT: Corporate Innovation, Imagination and Intrapreneurship Recorded: Dec 11 2020 14 mins

We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    Today, The New P&L TO THE POINT analyses this week's The New P&L conversation with innovation powerhouse, Tendayi Viki. The New P&L TO THE POINT considers the definitions of innovation and how they affect the success of it within a business; why innovation should be focused on value creation not product development; the challenges when there is no bridge between the free thinking corporate innovation lab and the business that it is doing the free thinking on behalf of; and why leaders should consider their companies as a 'portfolio' and what that means for how they align innovation, intrapreneurship and collaboration across the business.

  • The New P&L speaks to Innovation Expert, Tendayi Viki Recorded: Dec 9 2020 47 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    A focused and passionate commitment to innovation has to be one of the prevailing themes that drives all businesses. If you fail to continually focus on genuine innovation – in your creative thinking, in your people, your processes, your products; over time in the inevitable will come to pass – declining revenues, irrelevant products, disillusioned employees and leaders, frustrated shareholders. It’s ironic then that something so critical to business is also so misinterpreted, misunderstood and so often misaligned with the businesses it is there to serve.

    This week, The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business podcast series speaks to the innovation powerhouse that is Tendayi Viki. Author of ‘Pirates in the Navy’ and Associate Partner at Strategyzer, Tendayi has helped some of the biggest and most successful global brands to reinvigorate and realign the principles that define their corporate innovation. We discuss with Tendayi how to address the issue that many corporate innovation labs are not fit for purpose when it comes to the demands placed upon them; how you can determine a company’s true commitment to innovation by the reporting structure that exists between the Lab and the CEO; and how unspoken expectations and assumptions within senior management about both the role and the output of a corporate innovation lab can set it up for failure before it has even begun.

    Leonie and Paul discuss how brands can use culture to bridge the gap between themselves and consumers to create a more holistic exchange; the reasons strategy today can not be a 'one size fits all' approach; the importance of 'signals' when thinking about culture, strategy and interactive collaboration; the challenges of the current agency model when it comes to fostering a more inclusive range of voices and views; and what the future looks like in a world where consumers play more of a leading role in a brand's product innovation.
  • The New P&L Culture, Creativity and Competitive Advantage Roundtable Recorded: Dec 2 2020 72 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    There is real power in true diversity in business – it motivates minds, creates competitive advantage and builds brands with brilliance, relevance and longevity. It is, and must be, a critical component of a business’s strategic and commercial tool kit to ensure it both represents society it resides within and crucially, also understands the needs, desires and emotional triggers of the customers it serves.
    In this special edition of The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business Roundtable series, our guest host, cultural strategist and diversity consultant, Leonie Owiredu leads a conversation with some of the most exciting minds in the UK’s creative scene.
    The panel discusses how more diverse cultural, gender and social representation at every level within business leads to the creation of a more dynamic, creative and purpose-led culture of innovation, aspiration, and ultimately, commercial success.

  • The New P&L discusses high performance and productivity with Tony Walmsley Recorded: Nov 25 2020 51 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    So much of leadership is about the ability to perform at the highest levels - under pressure, day after day, commercially, mentally, emotionally. Key to this is the skill that lies in intelligently anticipating and rapidly adapting to an everchanging environment. High performance athletes are masters at this - anticipating and reading the game as it plays out and quickly adapting their game plan, strategy and playing style to meet the new challenges they face at any given moment in time.
    This week, The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business podcast series speaks to former professional football manager, now Performance Coach, Board Advisor and CEO of The Leaders Advisory, Tony Walmsley. After two decades managing high performance athletes on the football field, Tony transferred the considerable skills he had honed and applied them to the board room, working with CEOs, board members and senior management teams to help increase their business performance. We discuss with Tony the psychology of high performance; the effect of the 'always on' culture in business and what leaders need to do to build greater trust, authenticity, and transparency with their key stakeholders.

We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    This week we analyse our The New P&L podcast discussion with business strategy coach and host of The Resilient entrepreneur, Michelle Mercier, where we received a deep understanding of Michelle’s entrepreneurial journey so far, including the trigger point that started it; the trials, challenges and opportunities she has encountered and how her definitions of success have changed along the way.
  • The New P&L discusses courage and definitions of success with Michelle Mercier Recorded: Nov 18 2020 37 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    The entrepreneurial journey can be richly rewarding in many ways. It can also be challenging and filled with self-doubt as the entrepreneur battles both the external and internal voices that question the worthiness of their entrepreneurial idea and their ability to successfully deliver it.

    This week, The New P&L speaks to Business Strategy Coach and 'The Resilient Entrepreneur podcast host, Michelle Mercier. Four years' ago and with a young and growing family, Michelle made the bold decision to step out of the relative comfort of a senior role at a Fortune 500 company - with all the consistency and financial security that offered - and into the brave new world of entrepreneurialism.

    We discuss with Michelle the trigger point - the moment at which she knew she had to take that first bold step to becoming an entrepreneur; the trials, challenges and opportunities along the way and how her definition of what entrepreneurial success looks like has changed along the way.

We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    This week guest host, Kelly Bewers joins host Paul Spiers on the show to discuss The New P&L 'Reimagining Entrepreneurship' Roundtable she hosted earlier this week. Paul and Kelly discuss the challenges in the many definitions of entrepreneurship, the unequal access to funding and whether there might be new ways to create the conditions for entrepreneurship that are much more inclusive and sustainable over the longer term.
  • The New P&L 'Reimagining Entrepreneurship' Roundtable Panel Discussion Recorded: Nov 11 2020 70 mins
    Kelly Bewers, Social Innovation Leader
    There's a lot of talk about "build back better" with business leaders, organisations and think tanks contributing ideas and concepts to paint the picture of a better future. However, we also need to focus on the doers - those taking action, and willing to fail, in pursuit of the reimagining of business today. In particular, at times of crisis, these entrepreneurs are seen as leaders who can emerge with new solutions and innovations that play their part in transforming society.

    This week on The New P&L 'Reimagining Entrepreneurship' Roundtable Panel Discussion, Sana Shafi, Founder of STRIVE; Bayo Adelaja, CEO at Do it Now Now and Alice Moxley, Founder of Pivot join our guest host, social innovation leader, Kelly Bewers to explore what it means to be an entrepreneur today; who 'gets to be one'; the challenges of, and imbalances in, access to finance and funding; and if there might be new ways to create the conditions for entrepreneurship that are much more inclusive and sustainable over the longer term.

We offer an opinion on the key points from the conversations and how our listeners may practically apply them in their businesses.

    This week we spoke to Kazuhiro Gomi, president & CEO of NTT Research, the research arm of one of the world’s largest telecommunications and technology companies. It was a fascinating insight into Kazu’s views on innovation, the challenges around data privacy and how technology companies can play their role in designing and defining the future.
  • The New P&L discusses Innovation, Data & Defining the Future with Kazuhiro Gomi Recorded: Nov 4 2020 48 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    Successful technological innovation is a fundamental tenet of the continued evolution of society. However, ongoing advances in technological innovation rely on several critical factors to ensure that this innovation is balanced, fair, effective, and crucially, that it works for all the members of the society it needs to serve.

    This week, The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business podcast series speaks to President & CEO of NTT Research, Kazuhiro Gomi. We discuss with Kazuhiro Gomi how to innovate for a future when the present is so unpredictable; whether today’s technology disruption is evolutionary rather than revolutionary; how to balance innovation and privacy concerns; and what role global technology innovators like NTT can play in both defining and designing a better future for humankind.
  • The New P&L discusses Resilient leadership & Warrior Mindsets with Sean Bacon Recorded: Oct 30 2020 48 mins
    Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series
    Resilience in a crisis is a critical asset for a leader and the need for leaders to make calm, rational and clear decisions has rarely been more important than right now for many businesses, as they wade through multiple challenges faced by the pandemic and the uncertain future it has created.

    This week on the New P&L, we speak to resilient leadership specialist and Canadian Armed Forces veteran, Sean Bacon, who used his leadership experiences in the Canadian Armed Forces as the basis for The Warrior Mindset – a methodology that helps build more resilient, dynamic and agile leadership. We discuss with Sean how businesses can positively leverage disruption and chaos; the roles trust and intuition play in a resilient mindset and how leaders can identify whether the decisions they are making are based on emotion and fear rather than rationale and reason.

    To learn more about what Sean and the Warrior Mindset methodology, please go to: https://www.dynamic-shift.com/
Principles & Leadership in Business
We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways.

Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
