Adam Cox talks to Saleem Sheikh, Senior Partner at GSC Solicitors LLP, a City-based commercial law firm. When he was younger, Saleem had his sights set on being a pilot; but a family tragedy saw his career trajectory instead take a turn towards law. He discusses how entrepreneurs and business owners need to plan for the worst case scenarios we’d all rather not think about – such as bereavement and illness – and his role in helping with that. He also talks about the need for a trusted advisor – in business and in life – to help navigate life’s pitfalls, and why we need to be communicating with the next generation to create legacies that can genuinely last.

Adam Cox speaks to mentor and business coach, Denise Mortimer, about why many women are looking online and to social channels to create businesses later on in life. While the barriers to entry are low, Denise explains that it’s never been so important to carve a niche based on genuine value in order to create visibility in the online space. More and more people are becoming life coaches, but do we really need coaches when so much self-help content is free and widely available?
Joining Sue Dougan in the hot seat is Sarah Kelly, CEO of Stagecoach Performing Arts, for Stagecoach’s 30th anniversary since its inception in 1988. She discusses the importance of performing arts in helping children to develop well-rounded life skills for adulthood, as well as providing a safe space for self-expression and creativity – especially in the wake of a huge drop in Government funding for the creative arts in mainstream education. Sarah shares her earliest memories of visiting her father at his chain of butcher shops, and how she developed her strong work ethic from him – as well as never forgetting her mother’s saying, “Choose what you enjoy and you’ll always be good at it”. Plus, she talks about how her own experience of amateur dramatics as a teenager feeds into the way she approaches her CEO role now; why she thinks pushing boundaries and moving with the times is so central to successful business; and how failure is important for future success.
Adam talks to transformational coach, Effie Kli, about her story that not only led her to transformation, but started her on a pathway to helping others do the same. Effie speaks about the tragic loss of her mother to suicide while she was still a child; she shares how this taught her resilience, but also led to her living a life rooted in shame and self-deception. She reveals how, from all of this, she eventually discovered her true path in life – and now uses her experiences and insight to help other people live their truth unapologetically.
Adam talks to author Dean Williams about the inspiration and insight behind his first book, The Path to Financial Peace.

He talks about the importance of a financial review and the power of compounding, why the lack of financial education in schools is detrimental to our attitude towards finance as adults, and how education and mindset is crucial to finding your own pathway to wealth.
