Ben Gallagher is the co-​founder of B+A, a creative management consultancy whose clients include Converse, Google and Beats by Dre. Before he founded B+A, Ben was a journalist at MTV and later, Sir David Frost’s producer at Al-​Jazeera. He then found himself leading Nike’s efforts to make running appealing to young people. With COVID-​19, he's here to give his tips on how to work and manage smarter through this time.

In this episode, Audrey, Lee and Ben discuss:

  • Building a positive culture with remote, global teams in the pandemic
  • How recognizing small wins to provide enjoyment, hope and satisfaction
  • Boosting your empathy levels
  • Recommendations on better leadership amid the COVID-​19 “rollercoaster”

"Leaders feel uncomfortable being vulnerable because business culture largely still promotes knowing the answer as opposed to being able to work with people to find it."
