PODCAST: Thought leadership and the power of self-awareness, Mark Hodgson

Mark Hodgson

In this episode of Defence Connect podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Mark Hodgson, a leadership expert and thought leader, to discuss leadership and what it means in the defence industry.


Hodgson reflects on his short-lived career in the UK Royal Navy as a pilot and what he was able to take away from his two years of service, his views and observations towards the defence industry and the role of humanity in leadership today.

Hodgson reveals his top tips for modern defence professionals looking to build their self-awareness, how to create a personal brand through thought leadership and how to present the best possible version of yourself.
