#50: Lessons in Leadership with Kevin Watson

In this episode, we speak to Kevin Watson an award-winning business coach, who works with leaders to enable them to reach their full potential, overcome challenges and help take their careers to the next level. He is passionate about making a difference, enabling and encouraging leaders who want to create and sustain meaningful change.

He combines a supportive, results-focused approach with the practical tools acquired throughout his career that spans 17 years as a coach and over 25 years in retail, notably as part of the senior team responsible for the transformation of Selfridge to the iconic retailer it is today.

Kevin also hosts his own podcast, Words Matter, in which guests bring quotes, lyrics and poems that have been important to them, shaped their thinking and even changed their lives.
