This is the second of two slightly different episodes of the podcast Subtle Disruptors.
I have had a three-month break from releasing episodes, and before kicking off 2017 I wanted to think about the key themes that emerged during the 2016 interviews, and to ponder the areas I want to explore as I talk to people in 2017.
Last week I released the 2016 reflection episode, and this week I will be talking about the ideas I am curious about as I start 2017.
