It is with pleasure that I, Kate Cousens, invite you to listen to my podcast show ‘Ladder Down’ where I chat all things business and career along with other people who do interesting things!

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 an advisor, director and shareholder at a Chester based firm called HM bamboo helping 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.

Please let me know what you think of the Podcast - I am a total newbie to it so we will be learning lessons together along the way....but hey, that's what life is all about! Connect with me: https://linktr.ee/katecousens

This episode is a twist on the Ladder Down concept as Kate chats to Imogen Maguire who is currently in Year 13 studying A levels in Maths, Business and Physical Education. 

She has played football since the age of 6 and now plays football for Birmingham City Under 21’s! She says her ambition is to enjoy football first and foremost and is hoping to play in the Women’s Premier Division next year.

Her main mission is to change the world and she aspires to be an entrepreneur which she is well on the way to being already since she set up her venture - Corner Bookmarks - when she was 12. The area of business she is most passionate about is the environment and rightly, she believes we all have a part to play.  

She is the Founder of Power Now, an app which allows Electric vehicle home charging point owners to rent out their home charging points in an easier and more efficient way than other apps in the market which saw her become a finalist in the Unloc and Verizon Young Entrepreneur competition. She had the idea after experiencing ‘range anxiety’ when her Mum got an electric car and sought a solution.

Tune in to hear Imogen talk about her ambitions and the future world of business.
