An award winning speaker and founder of the UK Professional Speaking Association, Judith Germain's guest Rikki Arundle has faced considerable discrimination when they came out as transgender. Today in celebration of LGBQT + History Month they are going to help us explore some of the Maverick Leaders who have helped to change LGBTQ + rights.

They discuss the difficulties employers face with the changes in how society sees and accepts the queer community in the UK. They ponder on the effect of the many LGBQT + celebratory days on other causes. 

Listen to this conversation and learn more about LGBTQ + Month, how employers and brands can support the queer community.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
