A No Bull Podcast – #015 Glass Ceilings. Sticky Floors. Firm Fact, or Feminist Fiction?

May 19, 2021

The next chapter in Cooper Parry’s ongoing, never-ending celebration of female leaders and entrepreneurs is here. 

This time, Steve Whittle is joined by Abi Bown, Linda Marston-Weston and Elisa Howe. By title, they’re our Chief Growth Officer, Transaction Tax Partner, and Audit Director respectively. But really, their roles at Cooper Parry are about much more than that. 

Born from their own experiences of becoming female leaders and getting involved in a wide range of diversity initiatives, the trio’s ideas on how to level the playing field for everyone (not just women), get people talking and build a more diverse, successful business and society shine through in this chat.  

Of course, we’re partial, but it’s a brilliant listen. Enjoy.

A No Bull Podcast – #011 Piggin’ Brilliant: The Three-Time Co-Founder With The Midas Touch, an interview with Udhi Silva, Snaffling Pig / Startup Logistics / Medical Supermarket

March 16, 2021

After co-founding not one but three flying businesses with his trusty business partner, Nick Coleman, it seems everything Udhi Silva touches turns to gold.

The pair’s insatiable appetite for adventure and the next challenge started when they wrote their resignations together and set up Medical Supermarket; healthcare’s answer to Amazon.

From there, they founded the piggin’ delicious pork snacks and booze business, Snaffling Pig, which won over Nick Jenkins on Dragons’ Den, before setting up a fast-growing fulfilment business, Startup Logistics, when the pandemic began.

Through it all, Udhi has stayed as humble and fantastic as ever, and he shares the lessons he’s learnt from his serial startup success, and how he blends his work and family life in fun, memorable ways.

March 1, 2021

Next up, we’ve been chatting to James Piper, CIO at Ecosurety – a B Corp Certified compliance scheme that helps household names like Kellogg’s, innocent and Lush reduce packaging, minimise waste and recycle materials effectively. 

On top of being a passionate environmentalist and “rubbish geek”, James is also the author of a rubbish book – “The Rubbish Book”, in fact – which tells people how to properly recycle in their homes. Spoiler: can crushers, bottle top removers, you’ve been doing things wrong this whole time.  

An eye-opening episode for anyone interested in looking after our planet. And if you’re reading this, we hope that’s you.
