Let’s Talk Redundancy: A Tale of Two Redundancies with Mark Villalovos
“Lightning never strikes twice” they say, until it does… Episode 17 of our ‘Let’s Talk: Redundancy’ series sounds a little different as it comes from across the pond; Chicago, IL to be precise. I’m chatting with Mark Villalovos about not just one, but two redundancy stories. Comparing one redundancy to another, we delve into all things money, marriage and the vital role that networking can play in getting back a sense of stability. Having been made redundant in the past, Mark feels he is back on shaky ground after being placed on furlough, which looks very different in the US when compared to the UK. A head strong leader and professional ‘doer’, Mark encountered the all too familiar hurdle of ‘asking for help’. Mark reminds us that there is no need for you to suffer alone when there are people out there who want to help you! Past friends, colleagues, managers. Network, network, network – you may be surprised by just how many people are more than happy to advocate for you.

Let’s Talk Redundancy: Stuck in the Middle with Marco Beschizza
Although it may be less widely spoken about, it’s critical to remember that there are people at every stage of their redundancy journey. You are not the only one still trying to find a job, there is no transfer window, you have not missed the deadline. In Episode 16 we return to our ‘Let’s Talk: Redundancy’ interview series and are joined by the wonderful Marco Beschizza – at the time of recording he is still very much in the ‘Messy Middle’ of his story after being made redundant in April 2020. As yet another reminder that redundancy can hit at any level and any age – Marco is an experienced Global Head of Visual Merchandising & Creative in the retail industry. Previously he’s progressed from national to international brands and has been leading teams and designing visuals to drive sales across the globe for years. Marco’s redundancy story starts with being on mute on a call with 900 people and hearing they’ve all been made redundant. This was understandably a fair shock, especially for a manager familiar with the ‘traditional’ process! Sitting now in what I call the ‘Messy Middle’, Marco and I talk about: Redundancy during furlough and a company sale The difference when you have a team Retail Life vs Real Life Figuring out your financials Handling the awkward silence from a recruiters If you enjoyed this episode or it inspired you then we'd love to know - Take a screenshot, share it on LinkedIn and tag us both!

2020 in Review: The Questions That Got Me Through
2020, how did it play out for you? A surprisingly good year given the circumstances or one you were so ready to close the door on? After taking time to unpack and reflect on the past year I found some key questions that got me through it. They really worked and I’m still using them today. In this episode I’m diving back into 2020 to share with you the exact questions (and even some of my personal answers!) that got me through and now continue to keep me focused on Dreaming and Doing. Dedicating some time with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and reflecting on experiences can give you some perspective, inspiration or answers that you never knew were there. It could provide you with the clarity you need to take the first step in a Dream you’ve been putting off, to seize an opportunity, or to help you move forwards in your day to day. In this episode we’ll be looking at: What makes you happy? Deciding how to use your energy. Celebrating your wins. And what you can do right now. As we work through these questions together remember that, although you might not feel like it right now, you are still a Dreamer and a Doer and that it’s completely fine to find that a little harder in the midst of a global pandemic.
