‘Unfinished Business’ is the Henley Personal Development podcast.

Your career path might be more like a squiggle than a ladder; Dr Chris Dalton and Helen Tupper speak about "Squiggly Careers".

In our first episode of Unfinished Business, Dr Chris Dalton is joined by Helen Tupper (London) who describes her drive to improving people's career paths, and the foundations behind ‘Squiggly Careers’.

 
Helen Tupper (Henley MBA Alumnus) is the co-founder and CEO of Amazing If, a company with an ambition to make careers better for everyone. Together with her business partner Sarah Ellis, she is the author of two Sunday Times bestsellers The Squiggly Career and You Coach You. Helen co- hosts of the podcast Squiggly Careers which has had 4m downloads, and her TED talk ‘The best career isn’t always a straight line’ has been watched by almost two million people. 
 

In 2023 Helen was awarded a place on EYs International Winning Women programme. Prior to Amazing If, Helen held leadership roles for Microsoft, Virgin and BP and was awarded the FT & 30% Club’s Women in Leadership MBA Scholarship.  

 

‘Unfinished Business’ is the Henley Personal Development podcast. Hosted by Dr Chris Dalton, each episode is an invitation to join a conversation with an inspiring leader as they reflect on their lives, careers, and self-awareness. This is the personal side of management learning, which is a lifelong and emergent journey toward sustainable health and well-being for individuals, organisations, and wider community.
 

Many of those featured have graduated from Henley Business School’s top-ranked Executive MBA programme, and they represent a diverse set of nationalities, industries, job functions, and outlooks. What they have in common is a love of learning and passion for growth.

 

What barriers prevent us from reaching our full potential? How can fostering a healthy work-life balance enhance leadership? What role does personal growth play in driving organisational success? How can we contribute to a healthier community and environment? Join Chris and his guests as they tackle these questions, and more, as they navigate their unfinished business.
