Episode 4: Playing to your strengths with Ros Renel, Group CCO at Lloyds Banking Group

Playing To Your Strengths

Welcome to the Distinctive Leaders podcast hosted by Andrew Wallace. Today, we’re joined Ros Renel, Group Chief Credit Officer at Lloyds Banking Group.

Welcome to episode 4 of the Distinctive Leaders Podcast, where we bring you stories, insights and advice from some of the world’s most inspiring leaders.

Today, your host Andrew Wallace is joined by Ros Renel, Group Chief Credit Officer at Lloyds Banking Group.

As you’ll hear in this episode, Ros’s journey into Banking was far from traditional. And it’s her underprivileged background that she credits as one of the driving forces behind her success. She’s living proof that it is possible to carve out a career as a distinctive leader in any industry, regardless of where you start in life.

In this episode, Andrew and Ros discuss her journey to the top, as well as many other important and inspiring topics, including:

  • Why progression is only possible when you constantly challenge yourself, never stop being curious and take risks.
  • Why Ros proudly champions women, girls and the underprivileged, and what needs to change to create more opportunities for them.
  • And why it’s important to have passions outside of work so that you’re not defined by the 9-to-5.

So if you’re at the start of your career and feel like you’ve not yet discovered your true identity, or you’re struggling to advance in the way that you’d hoped, this episode will help you learn how to play to your strengths and become the distinctive leader you know you can be.

(Note: During this episode, Ros discusses the difficult but important topic of abuse, and how it affected her at a young age. We felt this was a very important topic to discuss further, so we will be bringing you part 2 of this conversation early next year).
