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 100 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.

Here we share our 22nd episode, featuring Steve Ingham, School for CEOs Faculty member, former CEO of PageGroup and, since 2019, paraplegic. This episode was recorded in 2020. 

Steve Ingham has been Chief Executive Officer of PageGroup, the FTSE 250 recruitment business, since 2006, having joined the organisation as a recruitment consultant 18 years earlier. 

In March 2019 he experienced a near-fatal ski accident which has left severe permanent damage including the loss of use of his legs and partial deafness. 

In this interview Steve talks about his accident, how it happened, how he recovered and how it has affected his leadership. We explore his view on inclusive leadership and his opportunity to influence and inspire and also how changing work practices can create opportunities to level the playing field for wheelchair users and other marginalised groups.

You can also listen to the podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and others.
