Occupational Therapist, artist and 1/3 of the electro-punk band, Charismatic Megafauna - this episode we are joined by the fabulous Georgia Twigg. Georgia discusses the benefits of working across different industries (acknowledging it can also be exhausting), a DIY approach to whatever they focus on and applying 'doing, being, becoming' to areas of their life that pushes them outside their comfort zone. A great example - deciding to learn the drums whilst performing to audiences. 😳 They also share combing their skills as an artist with their knowledge of physical and mental well-being to form a workshop focusing on staying positive and engaged in the face of disagreement. You can listen to a version of the workshop commissioned by ‘Keep it Complex’ titled: ’How to talk to people you disagree with.’ and also purchase an accompanying zine here: https://makeitclear.eu/posts/how-to-talk-to-people-you-disagree-with/ It is super practical and provides a lot of useful information on managing your own health and wellbeing in confronting situations - such as campaigning or protesting (or at Christmas family dinners!).

For episode 80 we are joined by Coach and Co-Founder of Hack Camp, Isabel Sanchez. Isabel’s career started off in social enterprise and then merged with the tech sector working with the likes of Lifeline & Just Giving. Most of her roles revolved around working with people - establishing collaboration with clients, colleagues and developing others.

Together with the wonderful former Greater than 11% podcast guest, Samira Musa, they founded Hack Camp - coaching to enable ambitious young leaders to transform their lives from the offset. In addition to their coaching, their fist initiative ‘Future Leaders’ was put together and launched in a matter of weeks in response to The Black Lives Matter movement.

Allyship: A Verb Not A Noun In this month’s panel show, Crystal and Renee are joined by Aluma, the owner and founder of ADN photography and Beth Foster, a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Lead for Alphabet and Chief of Staff for the Black Googler Network.  Aluma shares her personal experience of the past few weeks; ranging from the exhaustion to personal growth. 75% of respondents to our poll said they didn’t know what Allyship means so we discuss Allyship fully and practically. What it looks like, what it feels like and crucially, that it is rooted in action. Beth discusses how intentions matter less than impact and her own Allyship journey.  Tune in for an honest, touching, kind and hopeful discussion about the small bold actions we can all take, to further racial equity and for a deep yet highly practical understanding of Allyship and what it entails.  Resources which were discussed listed below: READ:  White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. https://www.waterstones.com/book/white-fragility/robin-diangelo/9780141990569 WATCH:  White Fragility YouTube Video by Robin DiAngelo.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45ey4jgoxeU&feature=youtu.be&t=89 READ:  All BAME Ain’t The Same https://www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/why-bame-aint/1672936 READ:  Natives by Akala  https://www.waterstones.com/book/natives/akala/9781473661233 ACT:   Write to your MP using this template to make Black histories mandatory in the national curriculum https://www.theblackcurriculum.com/action ----- 🛎 We need your help pushing for change: a more diverse creative industry within years, not decades.

For episode 78 we headed to South West England - to Bristol precisely and are joined, virtually of course, by Foley Artist, Louise Brown. To flag, we had a bit of a dodgy Zoom line at times, so there is a little static here and there but nothing too unbearable. Louise breaks down exactly what it is a foley artist does. From hugging bowls of water for a shark film to walking on the spot for up to 8 hours. Ok, it is a lot more complex than that, but you'll have to listen to the episode to hear it from the metaphorical horse's mouth... or should I say hoof? With a burning desire to work in the music industry, but with no understanding of how or any industry connections, Louise made the decision to jack in her job at a factory and do a BTEC followed by a degree in Music Technology. Whilst doing a summer job with an unplanned visit Pinewood Studios she discovered foley and this began a long and slow slog to break into the industry - even having to ignore and push on after being directly told by her boss at the time 'women can't do sound' 😱. Louise pulls back the curtain and shares some trade 'foley secrets' - who would have thought paper clips attached to leather gloves would double up as claws? She also breaks down the whats and hows when working on a brief for the likes of BBC's Doctor Who or Netflix's Sex Education. ----- 🛎 We need your help pushing for change: a more diverse creative industry within years, not decades.

A note prior to details about this panel discussion.  We recorded this episode before the tragic news of the murder of George Floyd broke. We, like many others across the globe, are both shocked and angered by systemic and brutal racism that continues to cost lives, is completely and utterly criminal and causes engulfing waves of pain for individuals and communities. Greater than 11% has diversity at its core, is anti-racist and is both an ally and supporter for equality for all.  There is a proliferation of information on how to get involved, support, get educated on tackling racism and with the best will in the world and sincere desire to get contribute to change, it can feel a tad overwhelming. We have found the Obama Foundation’s (https://www.obama.org/) Meet Anguish With Action (https://www.obama.org/anguish-and-action/) website really valuable in terms of educating and reflecting on the current moment and how to get involved - even in small ways.  We also want to give a shout out to a charity promoted by a former >11% guest and absolute legend who we adore, Collette Phillips. Charity So White (https://charitysowhite.org/) is on mission to root out symptomatic widespread institutional racism in the UK’s third sector through education. If you have the means and are seeking to support anti-racism by way of financial donation, you can contribute to the vital work they do via this link (https://charitysowhite.org/donate) .   —- For this panel episode Crystal and Renee are joined by two Content Queens this week, Jenny Hollander, Director of Content Strategy for Marie Claire US and Lucy Ferguson, Editor for Think with Google in the UK.  They discuss changing content consumption appetites throughout Covid but by far the most interesting and bizarre topic discussed in Jenny's father's preoccupation with stuffed animals. The panel also shares their favourite pieces of Covid related content and the impact of Covid on their work.  Renee’s content recommends  View: Ruby etc (https://www.rubyetc.com/) . also on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/rubyetc_/?hl=en) .

Intentional, optimistic and sharp are three words to describe this week’s guest - Brand Strategist and Founder of Brand By Me, Collette Philip.  She discusses knowing early on that she wanted to work for the greater good and be a leader. As as a child she focused her aspirations on becoming the UK's prime minister (something that she says is still on the table). Studying Business and German at University, she discovered she really enjoyed modules focusing on 'marketing' which resulted in her landing an Account Manager role at Grey’s London, as soon as she completed her degree. Spending a number of years in AdLand she realised she was finding herself continually in a cycle of sticky floors or bumping up against glass ceilings when focusing on her progression. She pivoted her career to working directly with charities and after 18 years of building and shaping other brands she decided to found her own - setting up Brand By Me in 2016. 💡 She discusses the things, as an owner of a small business she is facing as a result of quarantine. Has some fabulous thoughts and tips for managing your brand - whether that be organisational or your personal brand during the Covid19 crisis and reflects on the importance of dealing with past baggage to ensure you can move forward.

Ep 67 is the first episode from our whirlwind Scottish tour.  Discussing her love of art, we are joined by Nicky Wilson - Curator, Collector and Co-founder of Jupiter Artland. Nicky studied fine art at Camberwell College London followed by a masters in sculpture from the Chelsea School of Art. On graduating she won a British School of Rome Sculpture Scholarship. Her sculpting practice took a hiatus whilst she raise her five children but she having moved to Bonnington House, a grand 17th century manor house nestled into 100 acre estate just outside Edinburgh, she began thinking about how to bring her love of art into the landscape. Nicky & her husband began commissioning artists to make large-scale landworks and outdoor sculptures for the estate and in 2008 Jupiter Artland opened to the public. Nicky discusses her role, dreaming of sculpture and that sometimes the struggle is what makes something rewarding. 🛎 We need your help pushing for change: a more diverse creative industry within years, not decades.
