Sheffield Vulcans: Felix, Ashley and Michael

On the hottest day of the year so far I cleverly crammed as many people as possible into an oven-like radio studio.

But it was well worth it. Interesting interviews with five great guests.

On the programme today (broadcast this morning on Sheffield Live FM radio, and available as a podcast below):

Ashley Martin, Michael Hudson and Felix Barr, 3 members of the Sheffield Vulcans Rugby Club. Since launching last year, the Vulcans have had an action-packed first season as a club.

Sheffield Vulcans is a member of International Gay Rugby. Ashley, Michael and Felix told me about why and how the club was founded; their ethos and values; their first season’s successes on and off the pitch; how the club has recruited a number of high profile sponsors and their hopes for the next season.

And they flagged how anyone interested can meet them at tomorrow’s Sheffield Pride or via free taster sessions.

Jay Bhayani of Bhayani HR and Employment Law was back on the programme today giving the latest updates about employment law.

It’s always a pleasure to hear from Jay on her regular slots on the programme in which she shares valuable advice.

Jay covered GDPR, sexual harassment, a new Women and Equalities Committee Report and its recommendations, proxy voting in parliament, ageism and more. Essential listening!

Also essential: get yourself to events where you can meet other business and social enterprise leaders. And Tom Sutton of the Sheffield Chamber gave a heads-up on three key dates for your diary this autumn.
