The Society is delighted to have been the focus of an episode of Audible’s new podcast series ‘How to outperform: what Britain’s best brands can teach the world’, an audio show produced by ITN Productions for Audible. Narrated by journalist Charlene White, the episodes get under the skin of some of Britain’s oldest and most famous companies and institutions to find out what has kept them successful.
The Society is featured in the final episode of the series, which explores our history and how we have stayed relevant to the wider world over time by continually evolving. The episode features our Director, Professor Joe Smith; former President, Sir Michael Palin; and RGS-IBG Fellow Dr Max Jones from the University of Manchester. Research lead for Hargeisa for our Migrants on the margins field research programme Professor Laura Hammond from SOAS, University of London and famous British Polar explorer and polar medallist Felicity Aston are also interviewed.
Throughout the episode, the Director of the Centre of Inclusive Leadership, Paul Anderson-Walsh, provides his reflections on what keeps the Society both unique and successful. He also sheds light on how the Society can continue to stand the test of time, now and in the future.
