Reset: The podcast with Martin George, Waitrose

Like Comment
This week my guest on Reset: The podcast is the brilliant marketer Martin George. Customer Director, Waitrose & Partners

#Passion#Energy#commitment and #dedication - all words to describe Martin George, who is a man with a real story to tell.

From his amazing career at British Airways and marketing #Concorde through to his five year wait for a very public court case. Through it all, he learned the power of resilience & to focus on what really matters.

Martin chats to me very openly about the impact of these things on his career, life and family. He also explains how he is now an even more passionate advocate for the importance of wellbeing, culture & looking after your teams & his love of the Waitrose & Partners John Lewis & Partners brand.
