In this episode of Talking Talks I speak with Anne Miles.
Anne is the founder and Managing Director of Suits & Sneakers, a marketing and advertising talent network, and host of Suits & Sneakers TV.
Anne speaks regularly on removing unconscious bias from communications and workplaces and is an much-called upon expert in gender neutral communication. She is also one of the most constructively provocative people I know.
A trigger warning. Anne is a survivor of family and domestic violence which we touch on in today’s conversation.
In our discussion we cover a range of things, such as being yourself, the importance of practice and having contingencies, why "excellence is more important than perfection" and Anne's 10 minute process for content development.

Anne Miles has left every single job she has ever held in the marketing and advertising industry due to discrimination, bias or abuse. As a survivor also of domestic and family violence, and with children with special needs and multiple disabilities - and also a transgender child too, Anne has been through many personal challenges and yet still turns up with a smile on her face.
Anne is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion and doing her bit to make change in our industry and for the people in society. Now that negative stereotypes are directly linked to domestic violence she is hell-bent on making change in the media, marketing and advertising industry.
Anne speaks on removing unconscious bias with a special interest in gender neutral communication.
