As many of us head off on our summer breaks, business leaders will finally be able to relax with an exciting novel or unwind with an insightful podcast. Criticaleye Community Members share their personal favourites with Dylan Totton.
Featuring commentary from:
Rachel Barton, Strategy & Consulting Lead, UK & Ireland, Accenture: I’ll always take… books on vacation because a moment of pause is a good time to reflect and up our game on self-care.
Aimie Chapple, Executive Officer, Customer Management, Capita plc: Right now, I am reading The Body Keeps Score by Bessel van der Kolk. It is a fascinating book about how the human body deals with trauma, how that plays out in society and what individuals can do to address their own trauma.
Benny H. Goh, NED, Cyber Data Centre & Board Mentor, Criticaleye: Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life. A quick read, but still a refreshing reminder of what we require daily that will help us get out of bed excited and have a zest for life.
Gary Kildare, NED, Defence Infrastructure Organisation & Board Mentor, Criticaleye: I've very much enjoyed the podcast series by US comedian Marc Maron, called WTF with Marc Maron. He has had some fantastic guests.
Rahul Malhotra, Head of Brand Strategy & Stewardship, Royal Dutch Shell: I’m currently reading The Singapore Story by Lee Kuan Yew… a fantastic recollection of how the resilience of a few people helped change the destiny of an entire nation.
Jerzy Nagorski, Senior Relationship Manager, Criticaleye: The comedian Frank Skinner is on a mission to get the British people interested in poetry again, and I definitely recommend his Poetry Podcast.
