  • In today's episode of LID Radio podcast, we're speaking with Panos Papadopoulos, the founder of Swedish swimwear brand Panos Emporio, about how he came from a small Greek village and went on to build a multi-million-dollar fashion empire. We also talk about Panos' autobiography, PANOS: My Life, my Odyssey, which shares every aspect of his extraordinary journey - from childhood to what the present look like for Panos.

    About PANOS: My Life, My Odyssey
    This is a rags-to-riches story about a man who came from a Greek village, born to a father with three years’ schooling and an illiterate mother, whose down-to-earth Greek values formed the foundation of an entrepreneur who went on to build a multi-million-dollar fashion empire.

    Today, Panos Emporio is one of the most established luxury swimwear brands in the world, being the choice of celebrities and royal families amongst others. Panos Papadopoulos created this empire in his new country of Sweden in record time, introducing the winning combination of innovative design, skillful entrepreneurship and ground-breaking marketing, which elevated the brand to its world-leading position. Panos’ life as an entrepreneur is a tale of passion and total commitment. In telling his story, he also provides success lessons and valuable advice to other entrepreneurs, that can be applied to sectors beyond fashion.

    Panos Papadopoulos spent the past 35 years starting and developing Panos Emporio, one of the world’s leading brands in luxury swimwear, which today generates annual revenues of $20 million. Born in Greece, he is now based in Sweden.

  • In today's episode of LID Radio Podcast, we speak with Dr Maria Katsarou-Makin about all things group dynamics, her lates book Group Dynamics-Mix, a very special experiment she conducted and more interesting insights.

    About Group Dyna-Mix

    Since the 2008 financial crisis, existing methods of executive leadership have experienced in-depth scrutiny beyond their control. In reference to Patrick Lencioni, to understand teams is to comprehend an “inattention to results, an avoidance of accountability, and a lack of commitment”. Executive leaders have been operating through silent, lucrative and confidential team dynamics that are difficult to access and subsequently difficult to challenge and understand.

    Dr Katsarou-Makin explores the team-to-trust and trust-to-team relations between executives and their associates – pertaining to the familial relations between these members and their unconventional codes of conduct. Under this umbrella of governance, directors, leaders and corporate gatekeepers operate in teams that are selected and trusted through unorthodox relations which must now come to light. Dr Katsarou-Makin seeks to explore how these teams operate through a collective consensus of trust and the values this trust demands.

    Dr Maria Katsarou-Makin is the founder of the Leadership Psychology Institute and has more than 20 years of experience in organizational development and executive coaching. She combines business and consulting experience and has done extensive work and research in team dynamics.

  • In today's episode of LID Radio, we're speaking with Anthony 'Tas' Tasgal about his new book The Storytelling Workbook, whether anyone can be a storyteller, why storytelling is essential for your brand and much more.

    Anthony Tasgal spent 15 years as an ad agency planner before setting up POV, a strategic brand consultancy. He is a Training Director for the CIM and a Visiting Lecturer at Buckingham, Nottingham Trent and Beijing Normal Universities. He lives in the UK.

    The Storytelling Workbook is a practical, nine-week programme (based on Anthony Tasgal’s “rule of three”) to help you learn to tell your own narrative and present your story, whether it be for your CV, your dating apps or your own personal writing. It is an entertaining, instructive and interactive guide to becoming a better storyteller across all facets of your personal and professional life.

    Including a mix of case studies, advice and exercises, this workbook is structured into three sections: before, during and after. In the before section, you will learn to free yourself from reductionism, obsession with numbers, facts, data and ‘messaging’; in the during section, you will concentrate on finding simplicity, meaning and depth; while finally, in after, you will come to understand how to write less and think more and ultimately how to keep writing again and again.

  • Philippe De Backer and Juan Gonzalez are coming back for a second episode on LID Radio. This time they discuss whether traditional banks can strike back and compete with the NeoBanks.

    Philippe De Backer is Managing Partner and Global Practice Leader of Financial Services at Arthur D. Little. Philippe draws from his extensive experience as a global leader in financial services to share a proactive view on the disruption in banking and emerging business models, which are reshaping the sector and many industries as traditional business boundaries are blurring.
    Juan Gonzalez is a Partner at Arthur D. Little. He has worked extensively on the impact of technological change on the information flows that shape organizations and their interactions with their environment.

    Philippe and Juan are co-authors of the book Disruption, together with Arthur D. Little's CEO Ignacio Garcia Alves.

    Disruption provides a critical understanding of the impact of the current economic crisis and the current industrial revolution on financial services, the new trends in the sector, and the opportunities for banks to leverage their unique assets and pre-empt challengers from gaining meaningful market share. The book also provides top-level advice about transforming financial services organizations by finding the right balance between short-term requirements and the imperative of long-term change. This balancing act is what the authors call the “ambidextrous approach”, which requires focus on two strategic initiatives: performance and innovation.

  • Originally a director of theatre, Nicholas Janni taught acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and directed his own theatre company. He dedicated 30 years to exploring the theory and practice of peak performance flow states.

    Over the last 20 years, he gained an international reputation for his leadership programmes, designed for chief executives and top teams from diverse sectors, public and private. He teaches regularly at Oxford University and the IMD Business School.

    Nicholas' transformative work bridges the worlds of creative, personal, spiritual and professional development in a uniquely powerful, relevant and accessible way.

    Leaders of today must possess potent powers for logic, reason, discernment and strategic forecasting. Yet, they must also be empathic and therefore embodied; grounded and therefore intuitive; present and therefore awake. They must be skilled in mindfulness and deep listening, able to inspire authentic engagement and collaboration, and possess a clear and wholehearted sense of service, mission and purpose – restoring coherence where there is fragmentation and unity where there is division. Nicholas Janni presents this new and necessary leadership style as the Leader as Healer.

    The book outlines both a theoretical and practical map towards a new form of leadership, one that embodies the ‘skill, heart, and wisdom’ that the current moment demands. The pathway Janni describes is one of integration and restoration, which is designed to reawaken the innate human capacities – physical and emotional, individual and transpersonal – that were previously discarded and forgotten during our perilous journey towards profit-maximization and “infinite” economic growth. It offers a way to grow ourselves as leaders and to heal our organizations.

  • Alain Liebaert started his career as a management consultant, specializing in reorganizing companies on a ‘no cure, no pay’ basis. Following the death of his father, Alain entered the family business – Liebaert Textiles – and eventually became CEO, where he turned the business around in a declining market. After 30 challenging years, he left the family business in the capable hands of his children (the fifth generation), only to return to his old love of management consulting.

    Alain just published his first book, Mastering Decline, sharing his tips with managers running a company in a declining market.

    Compounded by the pandemic-induced economic recession, many companies find themselves operating in declining markets – markets that have no real long-term prospects for growth, and where the demand for certain goods and services are stable at best but are not increasing. Yet, in such an environment, it is not impossible for companies to survive and make profits.

    In this book, a former management consultant and current CEO of a company that survived decline in its market provides practical and hard-won advice for managers and owners of any company in a declining market or situation. In doing so, the author highlights key activities that companies in declining markets should focus on in order to secure their future and remain profitable.

  • John Simmons is a writer and consultant with a background in the world of identity and branding. He is the author of several books about writing, language, identity and branding. John is a globally recognized guru of modern business writing. He founded two influential organisations for writers – 26 and Dark Angels – that continue to champion more creative writing for business.

    His classic book, We, Me, Them & It: How to write powerfully for business, is now republished in its 21st-anniversary edition.

    It’s no good having a good idea if you cannot communicate it to someone else. John Simmons, in this stimulating and readable book, demonstrates how we can write and use words more creatively and persuasively in business today. From differentiating your company from another, to injecting life and vibrancy into your products and services, to writing everyday emails, this cult business book by the modern-day guru of business writing (now released as a new 21stanniversary edition) shows ways in which we can use words to gain competitive advantage in business life through “tone of voice”. John Simmons’ method of writing powerfully for business is based on his “WE, ME, THEM and IT” model, which over the past 25 years has been adopted by tens of thousands of marketers and other professionals around of the world. Simmons argues that effective business writing is about learning to love writing and words, and bringing more of our real selves to working life.
