He said, she said…

One thing that has surfaced in the conversations so far that has left me pleasantly curious is our perception of time. "I think that 5 years is a really long time in this world..."

Audio Stage: Responsibility in cultural leadership

Such an important conversation.

ESTHER ANATOLITIS

It was a great honour to be a guest alongside Angharad Wynne-Jones for the Audio Stage podcast by Jana Perković and Fleur Kilpatrick with Kieran Ruffles.
