The kindness of strangers with Big G

Season 4 Episode 17

Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 4 Episode 17 of People Soup.

In this episode it’s a welcome return for Big G - by popular request (Big G is my Dad, Gordon McIntosh). He reflects on his experience of the kindness of strangers and also his recent Chisi Award for Compassionate Inspiration.

You may wonder how this relates to adults in the workplace, well I think Big G is doing some important role modelling and I think we could all do with a bit more kindness at work. And I talk about this at the end of the episode.
