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 Joana Swash, Group CEO of Moneypenny, one of the world's leading answering service companies. Recruited as Moneypenny’s first sales person in 2005,  Joanna has been instrumental in growing the business which now employs more than 1000 people.

Joanna played a key role overseeing the company’s entry into the US market, as well as subsequent private equity investment by ECI Partners in 2018 to accelerate Moneypenny’s UK and US plans for expansion and acquisition.

At the heart of Moneypenny lies a unique culture which has seen the business enjoy recognition as a Sunday Times Best Company to Work For for over a decade. Find out more at: https://www.moneypenny.com
