The Pivot Point Podcast

With businesses in every sector facing change, three leading consultants have combined to create a new, broad-based offering for adaptation, refocusing and restructuring. Writer and director Mark Heywood (inkjockey), behavioural scientist Christian Hunt (Human Risk) and strategic adviser and writer Eliot Wilson have founded Pivot Point, a multi-disciplinary practice to help companies deal with change, manage risk, plan and embed their culture and strategy, and co-ordinate their communications and image.<br /><br />This podcast explores the inevitability of change, how we can frame it on our own terms and how we can own our Pivot Point.
