Remote working and isolation with Britain's first astronaut

By Workplace Evolution

04 May 2020

Helen Sharman OBE joins the podcast to help us navigate the challenges of remote working – a rising trend in the workplace and one that can come with the issue of isolation...and you can’t get more remote or isolated than space! We also explore Helen's incredible journey and achievement back in 1991. Can you imagine the responses you would have received from your loved ones or your colleagues if you told them you were applying to join a team of Russian Cosmonauts to work on MIR Space Station!? She pursued this dream which is a huge testament to Helen’s character – she is a truly inspirational leader that the United Kingdom should be so proud of – it was a pleasure to keep this story alive, and I hope you feel the same way too.   Click here for the link: https://bit.ly/3bUZNId   "When you look back on earth from Space you don't think of the things you own, you think of those human relationships...the people you know and love on earth. I hope this isolation experience will make us realise what actually is important"

Podcast Topics:

Time and space to reflect during the Lock-Down Astronaut Wanted, No Experience Necessary The Pursuit of a Dream The Journey VS the Destination The 1st British Astronaut - was diversity and equality even an issue?
