The podcast for women in business to glow and grow: Note To Self
‘Note To Self is a self-development platform supporting creative women in business. I started producing events, including live podcasts for our community to interact and tell their stories mainly focusing on career journeys, and aiming to inspire through workshops, discussions and retreats that encourage young female entrepreneurs to connect.
‘This year, we’ll be returning with 10 women who’ve been making real change in their sectors, aiming to inspire the next generation of business owners and freelancers as well as support our existing community and my peers.’
For the first episode of stylist and creative consultant Alizé Demange’s podcast series, fellow member and beauty and tech queen Sharmadean Reid discussed all things female entrepreneurship and work-life balance at Soho Works White City. Featuring key women in the creative sector, who Demange calls Boss Babes – women who have changed the world for the better, no matter how small or large her contribution – delving into self-development, confidence and other challenges faced in the workplace.

The podcast for dealing with loss and grief: Daddy Issues
‘Daddy Issues is a platform where the stories of the fatherless can finally be heard and recognised. Having felt that my fatherlessness had left me lost, foggy and drifting, I became incredibly interested in how someone could channel their trauma or grief into a sense of direction and purpose. I want my guests’ stories to not only resonate with listeners, creating a vocabulary with which to speak about the struggles and realities of fatherlessness, but also, to inspire them. Fatherlessness, as I have found, need not provide a ceiling to your success. Rather, it can be the motivation and provide the focus to propel you forward towards bigger and better things.’
Angharad George-Carey’s podcast is a vital listen. We all have a loved one who’s lost a father, and this podcast is a revelation, as conversations on the emotional impact of fatherlessness often remain unspoken. Carey’s series normalises these conversations and emphasises how these absences are processed and, eventually, overcome. Guests include Mark Malloch-Brown, the former deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, actor Jordan Waller and DJ Clara Amfo, plus British GQ editor Dylan Jones, who was beaten by his dad as a child, and model Simran Randhawa, who speaks on what it was like growing up with a dad in prison.
