In this episode of the Leadership Tales podcast, Colin welcomes Tim Carroll, Weather and Climate Lead at Microsoft. After leading teams at Dell, IBM, and other major tech companies, Tim stepped into his current role because he believes there is no more impactful work than predicting weather and climate in order to protect and improve the lives of all people.
Colin and Tim begin the conversation by recounting the unique way they met (spoiler: there’s a callback to Series 4 Episode 7 with Chris Tuff). The conversation then steers towards Tim’s work in climate science, including how to get people to interact with one another in a polarized political climate. Tim and Colin also bond over common experiences and their shared interests in music, and even touch on AI and the idea of legacy.
