The Future of virtual coworking and “Deep Work”

Working from home has its perks, from flexible schedules to easy access to snacks, but what about the downsides? Join us as we delve into the world of remote work with serial entrepreneur Alicia Navarro, founder of Flown – a platform revolutionising virtual coworking. In this episode, we explore the challenges of feeling disconnected from your company and colleagues while working remotely, and how Flown aims to combat distraction and loneliness by fostering "deep work" – that highly productive mental state we all strive for. Alicia shares her entrepreneurial journey, from inadvertently inventing affiliate links over a decade ago to her current mission with Flown. Discover how a rejection from a Google Maps job interview led her down this path and how she's navigating the ever-evolving landscape of remote work. But it's not all business – we also dive into what it takes for humans to reach their full potential, memorable encounters like partying with Snoop Dogg, and why Alicia always brings authenticity, even if it means swearing, to her job interviews. ********** Follow us on socials!

The Future of Journalism and Tackling Nepotism, with The Spectator’s Fraser Nelson

How many magazines can claim to influence how world leaders are picked? Well, The Spectator certainly can, as one of the oldest and most established UK publications around. It started life as a collection of magazines in 1711 - over 300 years ago - with early readers including founding father Benjamin Franklin. Today, it’s a political stronghold, with past editors including heavyweights Nigel Lawson and Boris Johnson. The magazine has also ridden the wave of digital evolution over the last decade. That’s prompted its subscriber numbers to boom, alongside its valuation, now valued at a hefty £100 million by some estimates. How and why has this happened? We sat down with its current Editor, Fraser Nelson. He tried a few different jobs before settling on journalism, including applying for the RAF and becoming a professional piano player. When the Barclay brothers purchased the Spectator in 2006, Fraser joined the ranks before becoming editor in 2009. Perhaps most notably in those 15 years, Fraser has overhauled the magazine’s recruitment process, by making CVs blind. They now allow anyone from any walk of life at any age a chance to apply to its internship scheme. This innovative programme has led to remarkable results as we explore on this episode of Jimmy’s Jobs of the Future, recorded in the heart of Westminster at the Spectator magazine HQ.

Geoff Norcott | The Future Of University

Geoff Norcott is one of Britain's favourite comedians. He's also one of those rarest of things, a right-wing comedian. Before his comedy career, he was a teacher, and during his time as a teacher in the 90s and noughties, he encouraged lots of his students to go to university. Now though, with fees much higher and satisfaction levels at university at an all-time low. He's wondering whether it's really the case that his son should go to university. So he's embarked on a documentary for the BBC saying, is university really worth it?

Timpson | From Keys to Convicts

Timpson is one of the most recognizable brands in the whole of the United Kingdom. With 2, 000 stores they have a presence on every single high street. They employ 6, 000 people and what you might not realize is 10 percent of those are prison leavers. It's a remarkable statistic and James explains to us how they actually teach people how best to rob them. Timpsons was started in 1865 by shoemaker William Timpson and his brother-in-law, Walter Joyce, in Manchester. To give you an idea of the legacy Timpson has in the UK, it was listed on the Stock Exchange in 1929. 150 years on, it has over 2,000 shops across the UK with brands including Johnson's The Cleaners, Snappy Snaps, Jeeves of Belgravia, The Watch Lab and Flock Inns. Today I'll be talking to James Timpson, in one of their flagship stores and chatting a bit about his new book, The Happy Index, which looks at upside-down management. We speak about the rules of success of a business that has seen itself go through two world wars, a pandemic, and the changing nature of the high street to create one of the most endearing brands in the United Kingdom.

Is Neurodiversity Really a Superpower In Business? | Dan Harris

Longtime followers of Jimmy's Jobs of the Future may have picked up on the fact that I'm dyslexic, a detail that becomes even more evident if you've perused my substack. While some people label dyslexia as a business superpower, as Richard Branson has done, it's perhaps easier to declare such sentiments when you're worth several hundred million quid and own your private island. Growing up and especially in the early stages of my career, I didn't always perceive dyslexia as a superpower. However, over time, things have changed for the better. Our understanding of dyslexia and various forms of neurodiversity has significantly advanced. Much credit for this progress goes to our guest today, Dan Harris, who has served as a director at Deloitte for an impressive 22 years.

The Future of neurodiversity

Longtime followers of Jimmy's Jobs of the Future may have picked up on the fact that I'm dyslexic, a detail that becomes even more evident if you've perused my substack. While some people label dyslexia as a business superpower, as Richard Branson has done, it's perhaps easier to declare such sentiments when you're worth several hundred million quid and own your private island. Growing up and especially in the early stages of my career, I didn't always perceive dyslexia as a superpower. However, over time, things have changed for the better.
