Host Sue Stockdale talks to Rob Lawrence, a podcast producer, coach and mentor about how the combination of sound and language can influence our emotions and can be a catalyst to create change.  Rob talks about how he changed his career from being an IT professional into podcasting and coaching and how he is ‘obsessed’ with creating highly engaging listening experiences, and supporting aspiring leaders and coaches towards finding their own voice, audience and message. Rob's successful podcast, Inspirational Creatives, reached over 130,000 downloads in 2020 and taught Rob that you can create an audience organically, by consistently producing content you care about. His podcast contains interviews with over 120 creative entrepreneurs, artists and producers on “how to create a successful living doing what you love".Find out more about Rob Lawrence: Website and LinkedIn Twitter Instagram with Access to Inspiration and read the transcription for this episodeWebsite - www.accesstoinspiration.orgTwitter Facebook quotes in this podcast:[3.29] Whatever it is, I'm listening to, I am having an emotional experience of sorts. And as that sound varies, my emotional experience varies too. And what I can say is I don't feel the same depth of experience with visual stimulation necessarily.[10.47] And what was really interesting to me was within the time that it took to walk from one end of the beach to the other, in my mind, he asked me three or four questions which completely changed my perspective on everything I did and how my life was at the time.[14.08] I love the ripple effect of podcasts. It's instant, it's global it's growing.[15.54] In order to make a positive difference, I think we have to think more consciously about everything that we do.[18.45] Is the next hour that I'm going to spend with this person, something that has the potential to lead towards positive change? If the answer is yes, that's the only measure I need on a day-to-day basis to keep going.[19.34] To me - to be inspired means to be moved. Perhaps a little bit more than that. It means to be moved positively towards wanting to create something.[21.50] It's really important we listen to ourselves and what we think. We all deserve the opportunity for our own voices to be heard, but not just by somebody else, but by ourselves too.[22.32] We all deserve that opportunity to be heard, but we also deserve the opportunity to create opportunities for others to be heard.

Sue Stockdale talks to Karen Espley, who could be described as 'the accidental adventurer' about what encouraged her to travel to Antarctica, New Zealand and West Africa. After 15 years working in large businesses, clawing her way up the career ladder Karen Espley had a demanding job with almost unbearable levels of stress. With the cushion of having saved enough money to live without earning for a year, Karen realised that there must be more to life, and when an opportunity came for a life changing trip to the Antarctic in 2000, she took the plunge and began her journey to find a different way to live and to escape from the expectations she grew up with.These adventures included living on a Russian base in the Antarctic, and working as a project manager in a rainforest in Ghana with Raleigh International. Karen then travelled back to the UK through West Africa via Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal using only public transport. In 2013 at 50 years old, she had a midlife crisis and then travelled around New Zealand and Australia in a camper van.Connect with Karen Espley: LinkedIn Twitter the transcription for this episode at and connect with us on social media via:Twitter  Facebook LinkedIn
