6 Star Leaders

6 Star Leaders

What makes a 6 Star Leader? Is the 6th Star really 5 plus 1? These are the questions that we answer through our conversations with guests who are driven by a purpose bigger than themselves and have a desire to reach more people. Our guests are successful business owners, entrepreneurs and passionate professionals who always aspire to evolve, improve, and better themselves and the lives of those they impact. Most often they put the customer experience at the forefront of everything they do. Each week your host Aveline Clarke creates a space where she and her guest have a conversation about what it takes to bring that 6th Star to the world through their business. This isn’t one of those podcasts where the hosts fire questions at an interviewee in the hot seat; it’s a collaborative exploration and ongoing global conversation about customer journey excellence, employee engagement, humanising business and what that 6th star really means, and how it can be used to create more impact for a better future for us all.
