In 2022, we took the airwaves for the first time with our podcast Purposing. Two seasons and 16 episodes later, we’re still lifting the lid on how to run a truly purposeful business. ‘Purposing’ is a podcast for CEOs, senior leaders and wanting to understand how to put purpose into practice.

Tune in as Given’s co-founder and CEO, Becky Willan, hosts insightful conversations with voices from some of the world’s biggest brands. With each episode focusing on a key theme, you’ll finish each episode with three distinct action points to use in your own business.

In series one we heard from Jenny Whitehorn, The Body Shop’s Head Franchise Director for Latin America, Fiona Cannon OBE, Group Sustainable Business Director at Lloyds Banking Group, Nina Bhatia, Executive Director of Strategy and Commercial Development at John Lewis & Partners and Amanda Mackenzie, chief executive of Business in the Community.


Series two was just as full of purpose pioneers and industry disruptors. We spoke to Tom Berry, Global Director of Sustainable Business of FARFETCH, Jessie Macneil-Brown, Head of Social Mission Europe at Ben & Jerry’s and Steve Waygood, Aviva Investors Chief Responsibility Investment Officer.
