I'm really excited to bring you two guests in this episode, Ben and Katie from Milkwood Care, who were both under 30 when they stepped into their managers position.

They share with me the challenges they've faced, the support they've been given to thrive in their roles and Ben shares his dramatic story of how his home came to achieve their Outstanding rating.

If you've got aspirations to be a manager, or know someone young who does then it's well worth sharing this episode with them.
