Keep it Simple, Sweetie! Steps Towards Clarity in a Complex World with Julia Hobsbawm OBE

Ryan Nile Show

During this lockdown I was lucky enough to 'sit down' with Julia Hobsbawm OBE is an acclaimed entrepreneur and author who put the concept of Social Health – connected behaviour as a form of wellbeing and productivity – on to the map. We got to discuss what life is like during lockdown while launching a book, Julia's TED Talk, 'Info Obesity' being mentored by Maya Angelou (YES MAYA ANGELOU!), and hanging out with my idol, Oprah Winfrey. Julia was once the legendary author Maya Angelou's book publicist and she first learned the 1950s’ design principle K.I.S.S. It stood for ‘Keep it Simple, Stupid’ – a term Angelou changed into the more elegant ‘Keep it Simple, Sweetie’.  a concept that this book is hinged on. The Simplicity Principle is an essential guide for developing a clear, calm approach in life. It will help you achieve maximum creativity and improved focus in a world that tests the cognitive capacity of humans to their limit. I absolutely LOVED this conversation and I hope you get a lot from it, the principles in the book have already changed my life! Grab the book here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Simplicity-P...

Coronavirus & Broadway Bonus Episode: Julia Hobsbawm, social health expert, author, and entrepreneur

The Theatre Podcast with Alan Seales

In an unprecedented move to help contain the spread of COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, Broadway has just gone dark for weeks. Julia Hobsbawm, a social health expert, entrepreneur, and author of a new book called The Simplicity Principle: Six Steps Towards Clarity in a Complex World, I felt the need to discuss the effect of this mandatory social distancing.For people both on and off stage, Broadway and theatre in general feeds our social health, but without that outlet now, what can we do? How do we adapt? How do we use technology without getting sucked into it? As it relates to Broadway, the shutdown, and the Coronavirus, Julia and I tackle all of these questions and more... when at the end of the day, we find out that this simplicity and isolation may actually be a good thing.Connect with Julia: Get her book: The Simplicity Principle IG: @itsjuliahobsbawm Twitter: @juliahobsbawm www.juliahobsbawm.com Connect with The Theatre Podcast: Support us on Patreon: Patreon.com/TheTheatrePodcast Twitter & Instagram: @theatre_podcast Facebook.com/OfficialTheatrePodcast TheTheatrePodcast.com Alan's personal Instagram: @alanseales Email me at feedback@thetheatrepodcast.com.

The House I Grew Up In

PR supremo, professional networker & businesswoman, Julia Hobsbawm, takes Wendy Robbins to London's Hampstead & rural Wales. Julia was born in 1964 and grew up among the country's leading intellectuals and communists in London's Hampstead. Her father is the Marxist historian, Eric Hobsbawm, who fled Germany in the 1930s as Hitler came to power. Life at home in North West London was a whirl of dinner parties, "German" lunches, and mittel-European salons - hosted expertly by Marlene Hobsbawm whose parents had fled anti-semitism in Vienna. Despite this family history Julia says that she learned about the Holocaust from TV. Meanwhile, at her grandmother's appartment nearby she revelled in big Jewish family get-togethers and a different sort of politics altogether - here, people voted Tory and followed entrepreneurial paths. This is where the very unacademic Julia - with terrible A levels & no degree - would forge strong bonds with her grandmother's niece, Gretl, who ran a manufacturing business making dresses for Marks & Spencer. Julia also travels to the Croesor Valley near Portmeirion in rural north Wales. This is where the family spent all their holidays throughout Julia's childhood in a house rented from the architect & local landowner Clough Williams Ellis. He delighted in renting out the cottages on his estate to intellectuals, writers, radicals and artists. Here, as well as London, Julia mixed with many of the great & good - of great benefit, as she admits, to the networking career she would establish as an adult. Producer: Rosamund Jones.
