Manage episode 291736010 series 2921961
I’m delighted that today I’m joined by Laura Whyte, the current chair of XL Vets. Those of you that attended the inaugural Women in Veterinary Leadership conference last autumn will recognise Laura from her brilliant talk there - she is a hugely experienced, charismatic leader with a lot of wisdom to share.
Laura spent over 30 years at the John Lewis partnership, of which over 10 years were on the management board, primarily as director of HR. Laura has huge expertise in managing people, getting the best out of a team, and building a business around the personalities and qualities that those within it offer. She also has an impressive number of trustee and non-exec directorships under her belt, and we talk in this episode about how she chose the organisations she’s worked with, and how voluntary roles can enhance your working life.
Laura is so warm and friendly, and full of good advice. I really enjoyed chatting to her and hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
