The Leadership Tales Podcast with Colin Hunter

I have created this podcast so that we can indulge ourselves in learning how some amazing people have overcome challenges, and failures to achieve in their roles as leaders.  

My name is Colin Hunter, will you join me on this fascinating voyage through all things “Leadership”?

Your host

I am fascinated by people and how they have used Leadership in their journeys to success.
