Thom Kiddle from Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE) appears in Leaders Council podcast alongside Geoff Hurst.
The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.
Thom Kiddle from NILE was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Geoff Hurst. Host Matthew O’Neill asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.
NILE, a world leading centre of excellence in the provision of teacher development courses, supports English language teachers, trainers and other education professionals at every stage of their ELT careers, both face to face and online, in the UK and overseas, from their base in Norwich.
Matthew O’Neill commented, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.’
Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O’Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’
Leading NILE through a challenging time for the industry, Thom Kiddle says ‘I was delighted to be invited to feature on the Leader’s Council podcast, and to share my thoughts on leadership in the language education sector in these unprecedented times. I have had very positive feedback from all who have heard the interview so far, and am honoured to have appeared alongside Geoff Hurst’
