Paul Spiers is host of ‘The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business’ podcast series and founder of The New P&L Brand Purpose Institute. He is a speaker, presenter and panel moderator on topics and trends around Principles & Leadership in Business as well as the growing field of commercial creativity and business innovation.
Paul believes business needs a ‘New P&L’: one much focused on ‘Principles & Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit & Loss’: if a business’s Principles are right and aligned with its purpose, and its Leadership has clarity of vision & is strong, focused & empathetic, then a business will be in profit and not in loss in many ways.
After a career as senior executive and entrepreneur in the creative services, marketing communications and reputation management sectors; a career-defining and life-changing series of events led Paul to re-evaluate where he was heading professionally as well as the core principles and leadership characteristics that underpin businesses today. As a result, in 2019, Paul launched ‘The New P&L – Principles & Leadership in Business’ podcast series and The New P&L Brand Purpose Institute in 2020.
In ‘The New P&L podcasts, roundtables, events and panel discussions he hosts and moderates, Paul talks with a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business executives and social impact investors. He challenges them to think deeply on the issues and opportunities around principles and leadership in business and how they, as leaders and influencers, can works towards building more principled, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful businesses – ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and passionate, motivated teams.
