In this enormously candid and generously open chat, Imogen Osborne - founder of research and insight house The Pulse Business - talks to hosts Brendon and Zoe about why truth and honesty should be celebrated at the heart of every business culture and how some of the most challenging events in our lives, be it death, divorce or debt can actually make us better and stronger people. Imogen has had an illustrious, wide-ranging career in comms, spanning both in-house (inc. Skype, Cisco) and agency (inc. Edelman, AxiCom) before changing her focus to research and insights. Imogen shares her insights on the challenges of captaining your own ship; the truth about work/life balance and reveals why it’s vital for businesses to adopt an open culture that sees mistakes as a good and acceptable stop on the path to greatness.
