Andrew Bohnet, Founder and CEO of UK based indirect tax technology company, Innovate Tax Limited, is interviewed by the prestigious Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as part of a nationwide initiative to share leadership stories of inspirational businesspeople.
The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland brings together the most influential figures from across the country. It celebrates the hard work and achievements of the nation’s unsung leaders, while laying the ground for the next generation.
The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.
Andrew Bohnet from Innovate Tax was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Geoff Hurst. Host Matthew O'Neill asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.
Matthew O'Neill commented, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.’
Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O'Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’
On being invited to participate in the series, Andrew Bohnet of Innovate Tax remarked, ‘I was very honoured to be asked to share my thoughts about the importance of leadership, and what that means for those at the helm of a growing business. Too often perhaps the focus is on management with leadership being tied under the same title. It’s a refreshing and necessary conversation to ensure that the distinction is drawn between the two, so that businesses can continue to thrive on inspiring, influencing and instigating cultural change within their organisations.’
