Episode 14: Alastair Paton, Managing Partner @ August Leadership.
Planet Driven Brands Podcast Alastair Paton
Alastair is an experienced leadership and executive search professional who is the managing partner of August Leadership.
In this podcast Alastair lays out where businesses are currently in regards their own leadership on sustainability. Our journey takes us from the boardroom to the affects of remote working on company culture and uses examples set by the likes of Unilever and Paul Polman
He makes it very clear that businesses and their leadership especially, need to be aligned on their sustainability objectives.
In doing so they will need to address change within their own corporate culture and to have their purpose and mission defined in order to attract the best talent
As he says: “The questions we need to ask, what is the company’s purpose, what is your view on sustainability, because to get the best people now; they’re going to ask these sorts of questions!”
Alastair, like all our panellists, is passionate about how we tackle the big issues around brands’ responsibilities to the planet and it’s a great discussion on how leaders need to face transformation as their organisations pivot towards sustainability.
Here, in Planet Driven Brands Podcast Alastair Paton he shares his wisdom, passion and experience with us.
I think you’ll love it and I certainly enjoyed the chat 🙂
