Castleoak Connects: New podcast series discusses“life, work and later living”

Specialist development partner, Castleoak has launched its first podcast series featuring one-to-ones with an eclectic mix of guests including a futurist, a public philosopher and a military leader, alongside thought leaders on later living and care.

Castleoak Connects brings together a diverse group of guests to share their thoughts and experiences of “life, work and later living”.
The first four, now live, are conversations with:

  • “reluctant futurist”, Mark Stevenson
  • Greg Walsh, specialist architect in design for those with dementia
  • Major General Andrew Mackay CBE, former commander of the British Army in Afghanistan
  • Roman Krznaric, public philosopher and author.

Future episodes will feature Professor Deborah Sturdy OBE, expert adviser for care home nursing to the NHS and director of health and wellbeing at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
“Curiosity has never been more important and this is a time where we have all been thinking big in our daily lives,” said Kate Still, Castleoak’s Chief Operating Officer, who will host series 2 of the podcasts in the new year.

“We wanted to talk to some really interesting people and get their perspective on life, work and later living to share not just with our own colleagues but also our wider partners. It’s quite inspiring stuff but also a really easy, enjoyable listen, and we hope people will give it a go and let us know what they think.”
The podcasts are available at https://castleoakconnects.buzzsprout.com .
