Distinctive Leaders Episode 8: The power of asking questions with Lisa Gordon

Welcome to the Distinctive Leaders podcast hosted by Andrew Wallace. 

Today Andrew is joined by Lisa Gordon; Chairman of Cenkos Securities and previously one of the youngest female board members in England.

Lisa’s incredible career journey is a testament to the power of curiosity. She believes wholeheartedly in asking questions and gaining knowledge. And has been the beneficiary of her naturally inquisitive mind, often switching lanes and always rising through the ranks.

Lisa looks back over her life and career and discusses her experiences as a woman working in the typically male-dominated world of financial services. During our conversation, we cover some really interesting areas, including:

  • How moving around a lot as a child has given her the ability to go into new situations and make them work.
  • Why you should get as much exposure to other industries as you can before you settle on a career path.
  • And how even in a heavily regulated industry like finance, you can still make your work fun.

If you want to find out more about what it takes to be a great leader, you’ll find this chat with Lisa inspiring.
