#13: Talking Lessons in Leadership with David McQueen

Pros and Comms

Great leaders listen, even if they don’t like what they hear. Becoming a better leader takes an enormous amount of self-reflection and ego checking. And sometimes it takes the work of someone who’s outside of your sphere of influence who isn’t afraid to challenge you to help you achieve it. In this episode I’m joined by David McQueen, a professional speaker, executive coach and host of the Leadership Decoded podcast. David has worked with everyone from students to global corporations to high-profile individuals, coaching his audience on leadership, communication and workplace culture.

Ep 112: Making love last - lessons from 35 years together with Madeline and David McQueen

Project Love

Hi lovely, We are back! After our quarterly monthly break from recording and we are jumping back behind the mics with a special relationship episode.  We got together with the playful power couple: Madeline and David McQueen to talk about how they have made love last (while having two children and running a business together) for thirty two years.  I’ve known Madeline and David for over ten years and they offered me invaluable guidance and advice on love and relationships in the years when I was dating.  They have always been intentionally open about talking about their relationship and sharing about the ups and downs, warts and all, of being in a long term relationship. They believe passionately that friendship in your relationship is key and that every relationship requires work to help it to thrive. They are also both coaches and so they bring a level of insight, self-awareness and a no-nonsense practical attitude to their relationship which you don’t often find in other couples.  They have so many pearls of wisdom to offer on how to make love last and so in this episode Vicki and I got to ask them about how they have made their love last for over thirty years and what advice they would give to others about how to cultivate a happy and healthy relationship.  As ever, when I speak to Madeline and David, I came away with so many gems and aha moments (and was squirming in my seat on a number of occasions too, as you’ll hear!). So I hope you find some valuable gems in this too. If you enjoy this episode please leave us some of those shiny 5 STARS on your podcast channel - every review makes such a difference (and it makes our day)!  Lots of love, x Selina

David McQueen discusses race and discrimination in the media industry

Agency Dealmasters podcast

David McQueen is the co-founder of Q-Squared. He is an expert in leadership communication, workplace culture and presentation skills. He consults and speaks with senior leaders all over the country including, a certain Sir Richard Branson. We discuss the challenges for all minorities as they climb their professional careers in the UK but David pays particular attention to the challenges facing black professions. He sites that across 800 partners in the top 5 law firms in the UK only 4 are black. 3 of those 5 are not British born. Of the top 4 consultancies, EY, Deloitte, PWC and KPMG of 1500, only 27 are black. He says this is not about ticking a box, UK corporations have promised opportunity that for those that get on, work hard, they can do well but many have not followed through on their promise and are failing a lot of black and ethnic minorities. This is just such a fascinating conversation concerning everything from the fall out of events of recent months and back lives matter to everything else in between. If you are interested in anything to do with: Race and Diversity in our profession and what to do about it.
