I was honoured to be approached by Brendan to be a guest on his podcast The Culture of Things. As a small business owner, passionate trainer and general seeker of new and innovative ideas, I have always found Brendan’s podcast to be informative, relatable and inspiring. Brendan is an inquisitive yet relaxed interviewer who encourages thought provoking conversation that is enjoyable to be a part of. I always find the podcasts interesting and a good way to refresh my thinking and ways of doing business.

This is a highly engaging podcast, expertly delivered by business culture veteran Brendan Rogers. Brendan produces a slick podcast which is a pleasure for the ears and brain. He masterfully bounces around new ideas with his diverse guests which results in deep conversations, fascinating analysis, and good humour.

I've been a subscriber to The Culture of Things from the first episode, so I was really excited when Brendan invited me to appear on the podcast. I really enjoyed the experience. Brendan is a fantastic interviewer - he asks thoughtful questions, listens attentively to the answers and then asks really good follow-up questions. At the same time, he keeps things light, so the interview feels like a friendly chat rather than a hostile interrogation. I've been interviewed by many people and have been asked the same questions a million times, so I was pleasantly surprised when Brendan threw a few new ones at me. That reflects his research and his active listening skills.

The Culture of Things is a highly engaging podcast and Brendan, naturally curious and explores topics with his guests in a very natural, conversational way. As a guest, I found myself talking about areas of interest that I had not initially planned on talking about. Brendan’s curiosity, got us into these areas which made for a highly authentic, and at times, raw recording. Brendan’s guests are well thought through, bringing a diverse and intelligent conversation across multiple facets of teams, leadership, culture and management. Highly recommended!

I have really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Brendan hosts guests and has simple and genuine discussions about his guests experiences and stories. This is an excellent way to learn from other people's experiences and has helped me come up with new ideas around how to lead my team.

Thanks for a great interview, Brendan. Given the quality of guests you have on The Culture of Things podcast, it was an absolute honour to appear as a guest, and a open and honest chat.

The Culture of Networking
I have just listened to Episode 12 - The Culture of Networking. An awesome episode that everyone should listen to. So many business owners think that networking is merely 'showing' up. This episode really shines a light on what networking really is and the importance of following up. It is a really thought-provoking episode that covers that simply and in a way that made me think deeply about the way that I network.

As a new listener, I am inspired by the conversations between Brendan and those he interviews. I could literally listen to Brendan all day and find him to be an authentic, genuine leader who has other people's best interests at heart. Looking forward to hearing more!
