It is with pleasure that I, Kate Cousens, invite you to listen to my podcast ‘Ladder Down’ where we chat all things business and career.

Sending the ladder down is the concept of someone sharing their success to help raise others up and, in this podcast, we will explore the ups and downs of climbing the career and business ladder.

This concept is one that is close to my heart as back in 2018 I wrote and self-published a book called ‘Ladder Climbing in High Heels’ where I shared a number of what I called ‘Ladder Lessons’ that I found useful during my 20+ year corporate career.

Since then I have gone on to become co-founder of a UK based firm called DICE which stands for 'Develop, Inspire, Create and Embed', summarising what I do to help owners and senior leaders with their personal development and business growth goals.

I love listening to people tell their story and how they progressed in their career or got to run their own business. I hope that listeners will find these stories helpful and can apply the things they learn along the way in their own lives.

In this episode Kate chats to Dr Paul Leinster. Paul was Chief Executive of the Environment Agency from 2008 to 2015 where he famously developed the concept of better environmental regulation, which has been recognised within government and internationally as leading edge. Prior to that Paul worked in the private sector for over 20 years. He was awarded a CBE in 2008 and is a chartered chemist and a chartered environmentalist.

Since retiring in 2015 it appears he has been busier than ever, working as Professor of Environmental Assessment for Cranfield University as well as acting as a Non-Executive Director, Chair and Board member for numerous worthy causes all linked to protecting and enhancing the environment, which he is clearly passionate about.
