Episode Description

With so many people being classified today as neurodivergent, our awareness and understanding is rising. Yet common beliefs still exist that not fitting into a so called ‘norm’ is an affliction rather than potentially a real strength. Why is it that so many successful people in life are neurodivergent? Yet 40% of the prison population in the UK have also been identified as neurodivergent? Is the system putting many at a great disadvantage and are we missing talent that could elevate our business and society? Following our recent interview with Paul Graham, Managing Director of Britvic I wanted to explore this hugely important subject further. I am delighted to introduce you to Charlotte Valeur, a former Investment Banker and FTSE Chair and Non-Executive Director, whose board-level experience spans a host of sectors and industries. Charlotte’s experience also includes the highly prestigious role of Chair of the Institute of Directors (IOD). a recognised international authority and professor in corporate governance and leadership, and author of Effective Directors (Questions to Ask). As a lifelong human rights advocate, Charlotte is driven to play her part in creating an inclusive society; she advocates for equality and inclusion for all, working at the intersection of Government, Industry, Academia, and the Third Sector. To this effect, she founded and chairs Board Apprentice and the global Institute of Neurodiversity, ION. With a breath-taking Wikipedia entry, and such success in often male dominated business, it came as no surprise to discover that Charlotte is autistic. So, let’s discover how we better embrace neurodiversity to ensure that unique talents are identified, cultivated, and embraced.
