Andy Skidmore - Words With Oz Podcast Episode 91
THE ACCIDENTAL SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
It is The Words With Oz Podcast’s absolute pleasure to introduce you to this week’s inspirational guest – Andy Skidmore, CEO of BurnBright.Org.
Knowing his purpose and passion with clear insight and understanding from an early age, Andy was fortunate enough to land his ‘dreamjob’, inevitably turning into his dream vocation, at the age of 19.
He is the CEO of Australia’s most innovative charity for 2018 – Burn Bright, and dedicates his life to providing school students with aids and tools in authentic leadership and wellbeing. His story and Burn Bright’s story is both an inspiration and example to follow.
Andy’s specific question was:
“Is the interpretation of, or definition of ‘leadership’ different for our youth as compared to an adult who my already be labelled a ‘leader’?”
Oz and Andy first met studying their Masters in Coaching Pychology and this conversation covers all manner of subjects you’ll love to hear about… experiential learning, the importance of relationships, true leadership in critical self-assessment and all the incredible subjects that can help you improve your and your family’s performance and wellbeing.
Enjoy the show.
