S2: E4 – In Conversation with… Andy Clayton on Neurodiversity in Leadership

Series 2, episode 4 - Andy Clayton on Neurodiversity in Leadership

in the fourth episode of our season 2 of In Conversation With, we speak with Andy Clayton, a speaker, author, coach and entrepreneur.

He leads Petra Coach Europe, the UK’s leading Scaling Up coaching company, helping entrepreneurs and high-growth companies to develop and deliver high-growth strategies. He is also autistic – it wasn’t until late into his successful career that he discovered he has autism.

In this podcast, which was recorded before the world was hit by the current pandemic, he talks about leaders showing their vulnerabilities and the fact that those with neurodiverse qualities can be great, successful leaders.
