Saltaire Brewery managing director, Ewen Gordon (pictured), has been a guest on the Leaders Council podcast, which also included an interview with Sir Geoff Hurst.
Hosts Scott Challoner and Jonathan White asked each guest a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.
Ewen shared his own leadership approach, and how the brewery and its team has met the challenges of two years of rapid expansion, followed by the current Covid-19 crisis and its devastating impact on the industry and key customers in the hospitality sector.
Lord Blunkett, chairman of the Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, said: “I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where the host is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in, day out, working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.”
