Third Sector Podcast #8: Leadership

In this episode, we discuss leadership in the charity sector, chat to CRUK's Ed Aspel and look at a new campaign from the British Stammering Association

Our eighth monthly podcast looks at leadership, examining the challenges and barriers to leadership development in the charity sector. 

Deputy editor Emily Burt and features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney speak to Shaks Ghosh, chief executive of Clore Social Leadership, and Vicky Browing, chief executive of charity leaders body Acevo, about Clore's recently published Talking Leadership report. 

They discuss what leadership is, what the barriers are to developing leadership in the sector and what options exist to help develop people's leadership skills. 

Rebecca also talks to Ed Aspel about his plans to retire from his role as fundraising and marketing director at Cancer Research UK and his thoughts on the future of fundraising. We also find out about his infamous tattoo.

Later in the episode, senior reporter Liam Kay talks to Betony Kelly, a trustee at the British Stammering Association, and the charity’s chief executive, Jane Powell, to discuss its latest campaign, Stamma, which aims to reposition stammering as a serious issue and smash misconceptions of the condition.
