#233 Eva Chen: On Building A Brand On Instagram

Today's guest is one of my most requested — it's Eva Chen! Instagram’s head of fashion partnerships.She's an avid user of Instagram herself with over 1 million followers and works closely with representatives from across the fashion industry to strategise different ways of storytelling on a platform that is becoming absolutely key for fashion labels and retailers. In this episode I chat to Eva about The Instagram Edit pop up shop at Selfridges in London which is open now - I went along after interviewing Eva at Instagram HQ and it was a really fun experience — getting to browse an Instagram feedIRL. The pop-up isa curation of eight loved fashion, jewellery, beauty and homeware brands that were born and built on Instagram — including Amme London, Atelier Stella and The Frankie Shop. As part of this campaign, Instagram has also taken over one of the iconic Selfridges Christmas windows, partnering with a 3D artist Antoni Tudisco.

#232 BONUS: How Do We Make Work Better? (with Investors In People)

My guest today is Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People. Paul Devoy has been heading up Investors in People since 2011. Paul led the buyout of the organisation from UK Government ownership into it becoming a Community Interest Company in 2017. In a previous life Paul was Head of Organisational Development at the Scottish Prison Service and during his time there all prisons in Scotland were awarded Investors in People accreditation. This podcast is all about finding a career you love and making pivots along the way, so it was a joy to chat to Paul about the work Investors in People are doing. Their products have made work better for over 11 million people across 75 countries since 1991.They are a community Interest Company, for purpose not profit. Most of us will spend 80,000 hours at work in our lifetime. For something that takes up that much of our time, Investors in People think people should get more out of it than just a pay cheque which I totally agree with. They help organisations put people first by turning them into communities and by bringing brilliant people closer together, it helps retain the talent within the company. Moving away from Government has allowed Investors in People to significantly redevelop and expand their products, and now they offer various accreditations as well as a free platform that supports organisations to focus more on people. In this episode we discuss the problems in the workplace today, what makes us truly happy at work, and what managers and bosses can do to make positive change.

In 2017, Jamie presented the two-part BBC Two documentary series The Secrets of Silicon Valley.And the reason we are speaking today is because I have recently become totally addicted to his new podcast The Missing CryptoQueen, a gripping BBC Sounds podcast that has been at the very top of the iTunes charts for weeks now.
