School for CEOs prepare business leaders for senior roles - purposefully, pragmatically and personally. We do this by discussing the unique insights of our Faculty of over 90 senior leaders at our programmes, who share their personal experiences and challenges as CEOs, Non-Executive Directors and Chairs.

This podcast is designed to share some of those stories with you, inviting a diverse range of speakers from CEOs of some of the UK's most successful businesses, to elite sportspeople and military leaders.

This special feature shares a story of personal resilience from an extraordinary individual.

This episode features guest speaker Doddie Weir OBE, Scottish rugby legend and founder of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. After being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2017, Doddie set up the Foundation both to support other sufferers and their families and also to raise funds to aid research into MND, to find a cure for disease. Here he is with old friend and teammate David Sole OBE, as they reminisce about the good old days, dealing with diagnosis, and the work of the Foundation.
