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. Episodes are released on the first Monday of each month.

Earlier episodes have featured School for CEOs Managing Partner, David Sole, Faculty members Craig Donaldson, Shaun Kingsbury CBE and Rosemary McGinness, Inclusion & Diversity specialist Sue Pascoe, former Royal Marines Officers Peter MacDonald and Martin Smith CB MBE and Scottish Rugby legend Doddie Weir OBE. Today we are delighted to share our eighth episode, featuring Chef Proprietor Tom Kitchin.


In this episode, we interview Tom Kitchin, award-winning chef proprietor and the youngest to achieve a Michelin star in Scotland. Tom shared the key ingredients to his success as a leader, highlighting the importance of the team, how his personal leadership style has adapted and modernised over time and how he fell in love with the pressure of high performance.

Find out more about the Kitchin Group on their website.

You can also listen to the podcast on Spotify or iTunes.
