Podcast: Transforming Spaces

About this Podcast Episode:  Transforming Spaces, with Professor Sally Mackey of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

As we navigate the changing landscape of work and the blurring of boundaries between home and office, finding ways to create a sense of community and a reinvigorated attachment to place is more important than ever.

Uniquely qualified to offer wisdom on how to achieve this, Professor Sally Mackey of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama shares an array of project examples where a sense of belonging has been created in unlikely environments.

In this fascinating exploration of leadership, Sally talks about the value of confidence, wisdom, the power of building upon the foundations and lessons of the past, plus the art of balancing agendas to bring your people on board with change and innovation.

"That's a shift change, and it creates a shift change in our own sense of belonging and then a sense of purpose as well."
