Poonam is passionate about Diversity, Equality, Inclusive values & Climate change. She is a Syndicate Investor with Investing Women Angels and Board-level Advisor, Chair & Consultant for Technology Startups. Poonam said "I’m a very strong vocal champion for diversity and women’s causes and I invest in Investing Women Angels. Data shows that we are not as equal as we thought or as we would like to be. So there is perception and then there is stark reality on the investment side that less than 2% of venture capital goes to women founders and no wonder that when women form businesses, they can’t scale because they cant access support and funding."As a Climate Change Champion she said "This year the world’s eyes are on Glasgow for COP26 and more than that- It’s not just that we are hosting it, it’s the after effects of the COP . At the moment we are thinking about what a good COP26 looks like. This is the year when we have to make the world leaders agree to something that keeps that world temperature down to 1.5 degrees., Scientists have been saying for a long time that temperatures are rising, glaciers are melting there are more floods and fires and it’s spreading. It’s not someone else’s backyard problem,  it’s reaching here, it’s reaching everywhere, so now is the time to take action and the leaders need to align to reach the net zero targets that are being set.

Episode 56- Angela Burton- Why Writing Your Story Matters
Angela Burton is the Founder & Chief Writing Motivator of Feet to the Fire Writers' Workshops®, a creative program that inspires older adults to challenge themselves through expressive writing. Started in Louisville, KY in 2014, Feet to the Fire has expanded to develop a licensed train-the-facilitator program for senior living communities and wellness organizations. The program currently operates in seven U.S. states; in 2020, amidst the COVID pandemic, Feet to the Fire pivoted to launch a consumer version – writer’s kits and virtual groups for those who are socially isolated by the pandemic, a needed way for people to fill up their days, writing the stories of their lives, finding purpose along the way.  She landed a spot in 2018 Louisville's WILD Accelerator for Female Founders program and has gained national attention since. Feet to the Fire was recognized as Next Avenue’s Editor’s Picks for 2018 and has been featured in McKnight’s Senior Living (2019), MarketWatch, Forbes and other publications. When COVID19 restricted senior living communities from having even small-group activities, Burton decided to keep their voices alive by starting a podcast, Feet to the Fire Writers’ Workshops® OUTLOUD, featuring interviews with and stories read by the writers themselves. Currently the podcast is being listened to in the U.S. and abroad – from Canada to the UK to Ireland and India! Burton was recently named a Next Avenue Influencer in Aging, sharing the spotlight with such greats as Dr. Vivek Murthy and Michael J. Fox, among others.  Burton says, “We are driven by our social mission - to provide a meaningful way for people to express themselves through writing. The research tells us that writing is a useful tool for improving social/emotional and cognitive wellbeing. With the tragedy of a global pandemic, we know that people need resources such as ours to help them feel connected and heard, to bring them self-awareness and purpose and to support their mental wellbeing as they age. We simply could not give up, rather move forward at a time when what we do is sorely needed.” Burton holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a B.A. in English from the University of Louisville.  Our social media links: https://www.facebook.com/onfirewriters Facebook business pagehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/angela-burton-35738410/ LinkedIn personal pagehttps://www.linkedin.com/company/feet-to-the-fire-writers'-workshops/ LinkedIn business pagehttps://twitter.com/onfirewriters Twitter business pagehttps://www.instagram.com/feettothefirewritersworkshops/ Instagram business page                                                  If you would like to know how you can Become More Significant right now, book a 20 minute free coaching call on https://calendly.com/sylviabaldock/1-2-1-discovery-call or by emailing  sylvia@sylviabaldock.comhttps://podfollow.com/becoming-more-significant  Available on all major Podcast Channels

Episode 55 - Joe Foster - The Reebok Story
Joe Foster, Founder of Reebok, born with the ‘DNA of an improver’, shares his incredible story in this fascinating conversation. Joe’s grandfather was the founder of J W Foster & Sons (Athletic Shoes) Ltd and the inventor of the Spiked Running Shoe and the Trainer (Sneaker).  Joe and his late brother Jeff were born into the J W Foster & family business, but on their return after 2 years away from home on National Service, they asked questions. The year was 1955 and the brothers saw a business still rooted in the 1930’s. Their Father and Uncle were now operating the business and spent more time feuding than collaborating.  So, in 1958 Joe and Jeff left the Foster business to set up a new Sports Shoe company; Mercury Sports Footwear, which after 18 months they changed its name to REEBOK.  By 1965, Joe was on his way to the NSGA (National Sporting Goods of America) Show in Chicago, which was the start of many Global adventures and experiences that after 15 years brought him together with Paul Fireman and later many Stars of film and television.  As the surviving Founder of Reebok, Joe still welcomes the opportunity to travel and recount those early stories from start-up to taking the company to a $4 billion business, overtaking Adidas & Nike to become the Worlds’ No.1 sports brand.https://twitter.com/Reebokfounder https://www.instagram.com/reebokthefounder/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/joe-foster-a38a4b10b/ https://www.facebook.com/JWFosterheritage  ‘The Shoemaker’ - https://bit.ly/ShoemakerJoeFoster *                         *                            *                            *                           * Sylvia Baldock has been transforming lives from the tender age of 13 when she ran a youth group for deprived teenagers in Glasgow, Scotland.Throughout her varied career from Theatre Sister in Open heart Surgery to a Masterclass Facilitator, Speaker, Business Mentor/Coach and Author, Sylvia has inspired and motivated thousands of people to recognise the unique value they bring to the workplace and to live a life of purpose and impact by Becoming More Significant.Sylvia works with Leaders, Aspiring Leaders, Teams and Individuals who want to increase visibility, credibility, confidence, clarity, communication, collaboration, motivation, productivity and growth.If you would like to know how you can Become More Significant right now, book a 20 minute free coaching call on https://calendly.com/sylviabaldock/1-2-1-discovery-call or by emailing  sylvia@sylviabaldock.comhttps://podfollow.com/becoming-more-significant  Available on all major Podcast Channels
