Liz Johnson - Composer

Liz Johnson Composer - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Liz Johnson (b.1964) is an award-winning British composer based in the Malvern Hills, Herefordshire ‘a major composer deserving wide recognition’ (Divine Art). Her music encompasses an immense range from the smallest miniatures to expansive, large-scale, ambitious and multifaceted works. Liz was selected as one of Sound and Music’s first ‘New Voices’ in 2018 which has led to her directing a ground-breaking multidisciplinary project Scintilla weaving music, poetry, dance and live electronics, working with internationally renowned choreographer/ dancer Dane Hurst.

Several of Johnson’s works engage with wider issues of wellbeing: Scintilla explores issues of isolation and mental health, and the series of Triptych pieces for early instruments focuses on female body image after major surgery, inspired by the artwork Triptych – a scarred series by Dora Williams. Johnson has herself recently overcome serious illness leading to isolation. Having now regained her health she is passionate about creating work that allows people to engage with the most difficult issues. Colwall Requiem for Aleppo – a Requiem for Refugees – juxtaposes music for amateur choir and children’s choir with virtuosic meditations and transcriptions of traditional Arabic music for the viola soloist.  ‘I can’t remember the last time I actually dripped tears during a concert. And then she brought us back to a place of hope by the end of the piece so we were emotionally safe to head back into the real world.’ (Liz Garnett) http://www.helpingyouharmonise.com/colwall

Johnson’s debut double album Intricate Web (2017) has been met with wide critical acclaim ‘The Cello Suite is stunning… The music explores a vast canvas… To me, this suite is Johnson’s masterpiece (so far). It is not too much to say that it takes its place beside Bach, Britten and Ligeti.’(Musicweb-International). Johnson’s close working relationship with the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, who recorded the album, has given rise to two impressive large-scale works: the clarinet quintet Sea-change, featuring twenty-five different instruments, including string quartet with Swannee whistles and egg shakers and five different sized clarinets from Contrabass to E flat, and Sky-burial for female voice and string quartet. 'The music is in turn rugged, anguished, languid, and resigned, producing a haunting scenario that will not quickly be forgotten' (Fanfare), sung by vocalist extraordinaire Loré Lixenberg.

Liz Johnson started her career as a Primary School teacher and it was not until her mid-30s that she began studying composing for the first time. Taught by Philip Cashian she went on to gain her PhD at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in 2006. She lectures at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and is currently overseeing a new creative collaboration between student musicians and composers with choreographers and dancers at the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Neale Wood - Talk ‘n’ Walk

Neale Wood - Share Your Story - Podcast.jpeg

Having suffered from PTSD and the ailments that are often connected to a breakdown. Such as Anxiety and Panic Attacks, sever Depression and a self loathing and hatred of what I had become. My Hero Story I feel is more about what I did to overcome these debilitating illnesses.

For me as a guy now in his 50's, I had no idea what Stress was and to be fare thought that it was weak minded people that needed to get a grip. I never believed that I would suffer from it, never mind the fact that I tried to 'check out' and end it all. It was the most terrifying and debilitating illness I have ever suffered from and for many, many months the fight to survive hung in the balance, a balance I had no CONTROL over.

I had been brought up to believe men should be big, strong, never need help and not to show emotional weakness and protect.

Nothing prepared me for what happened and it was my core programming that was the real issue for my mental health state, or lack of it.

The rest you can find out by listening  to my interview and visiting my website/FB page, or watch my videos and blogs.

Jack Hamilton Fellows - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Loughborough Graduate 2019 with entrepreneurial tendencies. Started 3 companies during my studies: Personal Training, Import & Export of Hazelnuts and most recently an ethical clothing company, The Social Mercenary.

Interesting facts: My first job was in Nuclear Engineering. I like finance - coming second in a competition at Microsoft Asia HQ. I'm obsessed with self-development, lifting myself out of depression and regular panic attacks. I'm binary, it's 100% or nothing. I love going on adventures especially skiing or surfing. 

One of my hardest challenges to date. Opened up trading with ethical factories in Ghana. Raised £10,000 on Kickstarter in 2017 to begin the project, being featured in National Press. Donated backpacks to be filled as Xmas parcels for the homeless. Generated £40,000 in turnover from the first year of trading. So far we have sold 1000 backpacks and now sell a range of accessories.

Amir Bormand - Technology Recruitment

Amir Bormand - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Amir Bormand is the Co-founder of Elevano, a California- based recruitment company, who helps hundreds of people find more fulfilling jobs every year.

Amir is unique to the recruiting industry because he is a former engineer himself— and could still jot out a few lines of code! He’s seen the technical recruiting game from both sides, and during his engineering career, he constantly saw agency recruiters take shortcuts and use deceptive practices all for their own benefit.

That’s why, in his current position as Co-founder of Elevano, he encourages a candidate-centric approach to every aspect of technical recruiting and sales. His overriding desire is to smash the negative stigma left by current recruitment strategies, and replace it with a more transparent, honest and empathetic service offering.

When he’s not working, Amir enjoys spending time with his families and traveling. He and his wife have a 5-year-old daughter, who keeps him busy with the latest trends in Disney cartoons, you might just catch him humming Disney movie theme songs!

0057: Nick Davies - Really Great Training

Podcast - Nick Davies - Really Great Training.jpeg

Hi, I’m Nick Davies. I’m a tall Mancunian, Blue Peter badge winner and the bloke who owns ‘The Really Great Training Company.’ My background’s in law and business. I’ve been a sales rep, a sandwich maker, and even sold shoes for Russell & Bromley for 6 years - where David Beckham and Vera Duckworth were customers. I’ve also been the director responsible for business development at two limited companies, and started 4 businesses of my own. 

I qualified as a barrister as a mature student and even practised … for 6 months (the wig just wasn’t me.) As a trainer and coach in a range of communication skills, I travel the country, teaching bankers, lawyers, actuaries, civil servants and business people how to pitch, present, network, sell and persuade. 

My clients range from global legal practices and financial institutions to small, owner-managed firms as well as The Royal Household (a kind of more grand owner-managed firm.) 

When I’m not training and coaching I perform stand-up, deliver after-dinner speeches and host award ceremonies. Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to have worked and shared stages with a buffet of reasonably well-known people; including: The Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo, Sir Digby Jones, Jenny Bond, Kate Adie, Roger Black MBE, Alan Hansen, Frankie Boyle and Alastair Campbell.

Adrian Nantchev - share your story podcast.jpeg

Indecision! After graduating from university in 2014 I was unsure what to do. By chance I discovered Coursera and learnt about some subjects I had an interest about. 

Starting with USA's constitution and then branched into economics, finances, marketing and business management.

Coming from non business background all the topics were new to me and a lot of the things. I was beginning to learn learning about were in stark contrast to what I had been brought up on.

Soon after I discovered my love of reading. Reading books such as the '4 Hour Work Week', 'Rich Dad Poor Dad', 'Richest Man in Babylon', 'Think and Grow Rich'. After reading them, there was no turning back.

In late November 2014 I decided to start my first business; Game Overload. It was launched in late January 2015. In the end I bit off more than I could chew with this business. I tried pivoting the business, but the passion slowly burnt out.

Always learning, always reading, always expanding comfort zone, always creating win-win scenarios.

Always adding value into the world. Masters do whatever it takes.

Remember, you either win or you learn. And by learning you are developing deeper roots for success. You can do more good in the world when you are rich.

How you do anything, is how you do everything" - T. Harv Ecker.

Mastering the Magic of Gender Dynamics

It’s no longer a game of hard line selling your services and products, the name of the game is building relationships, growing your following, leading a tribe, the future legacy you want to attract is seeded in every conversation you engage in.

As an International Speaker, Changemaker and Gender Dynamics Expert, Pauline T. Crawford-Omps has 30 years of experience in corporate C-suites in the UK and Asia Pacific. She has led corporate and government projects in UK and Malaysia, bringing leaders and teams into a new paradigm for collaboration and conversation. Experienced PhD in Entreprenology, specialising in Business Behaviour, and acclaimed as #MissMagicalConversations, she has a passion to show men and women how to value their differences and work together to deliver that extra zest that beats the rest!

New to the US, I am fast making an impact spotlighting the fast-changing MIND-Field of business and life success for MEN as they discover that ‘working together’ with WOMEN truly requires a new mindset of trust and honesty. Not easy with the pressure of the #metoo movement and high-profile cases highlighted in the news.

As business and life merge, men and women need to create solutions together through magical conversations. The co-creation of new rules between gender dynamics is not merely a suggestion but an imperative for exponential growth. When an open mind perspective and a high level of heart-logic creates not only expansive results today but a legacy for tomorrow’s generation. Where a little magic in your communication goes a long way to ensuring not only your wealth in deal-making but good health in your whole life!

Podcast Natalie Hailey.jpeg

I set up Hot Content to help businesses with their blogging and content; I love writing and it seemed there was a real need for quality content for those who wanted to outsource this element of their business. However, as time has gone on, the teacher in me has taken over – I did always dream of being a teacher… and then I had my own children and realised perhaps being in a confined space with more than 20 of them perhaps wasn’t for me!

I now love to teach the principles of content marketing and never tire from helping people go from confused, overwhelmed and frustrated to relieved, in control and energised. I truly believe that with the right help and a patient teacher, anyone can take control of their own online marketing and enjoy the benefits of increased brand awareness, audience engagement and leads.

One moment, one person, one kindness—is all it takes to help someone go from a negative space to a positive place. BE the difference.” Gabriella has been seen by millions on Dr. Phil, ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. She also writes for the Huffington Post and the NY Daily News. 

#DaretobeKind a Global Movement
