First Ever Guest Presenter

On Friday 11th March, 9am (UK time), the Roadmap MBA is having its first ever guest presenter!

It was always part of the bigger plan for the Roadmap to have multiple presenters from different backgrounds, experiences and cultures, so it's a real pleasure to take this next step on our journey.

Who is Ashleigh?

Ashleigh King is the podcast host and creator of the Nurture Your Zest podcast series, which hopes to share examples of overcoming adversity and how through courage, creativity and curiosity, you can find inspiration to nurture your zest.

An MBA Alumna of Newcastle University Business School, Ashleigh is originally from South-Africa and known for her enthusiasm and positivity, juggling a lot of interesting projects as a creative entrepreneur!

In her podcasts, you'll hear her honest reflections about life with ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a journey of overcoming perfectionism, failing at things and finding courage when it matters the most!

In addition to being our first ever guest presenter, Ashleigh is also following her childhood dreams of being a storyteller, teaching businesses and individuals how to launch their own podcast through her creative studio, Flamingo Heights, which is based in the Ouseburn, Newcastle upon Tyne.
