Show Notes

In this episode I chat to Annie Ridout: journalist, author, poet and founder of the business community for women The Robora

When I listened back to this conversation, recorded in July, I realised that Annie is such a natural coach that I had accidentally ended up talking more about myself than I usually would.

Thankfully I managed to shut up long enough for Annie to find the space to talk to me about her varied career, starting from a very young age washing cars, passing through nightclubs in her early twenties and internships at newspapers to where she is now.

We also talked about the idea of all art as connection, her book Shy, where she explores the value in being the quiet person in the room and what it was like to go viral with her poetry,

Welcome to my very chatty chat with the endlessly lovely and fast thinking Annie Ridout.
