In this episode Mark talks to Samreen McGregor.
Samreen is a Leadership Advisor and Executive coach who creates the conditions leaders need to stretch beyond their existing capabilities and simultaneously preserve their wellbeing. She is also half Venezuelan and half Indian and has over the years felt like a "Mutt" in a world of "Purebreds", but more recently she describes herself as a "Londoner", mother of 2 teenagers and leadership consultant.
In the past month Samreen has published "Leader Awakened", a book which stems from personal experience and adversity, as well as her passion for helping leaders and teams to flourish. It achieved Amazon #1 bestseller status in 4 markets almost as soon as it launched.
