Welcome to episode 8 of Radio Omnicor – our podcast about the science of business!

At Omnicor, we’re driven to understand as much as possible in the current organisational and people development space. Each episode will feature fascinating guests who will share tools and the latest thinking to help grow your own career or improve your team or business.

In this episode, James Ashton takes us on an epic journey, so beautifully narrated that it will have you transported to faraway places and spaces. He shares his very personal story of starting Omnicor with his wife Cathy Farlam, and how they built a business with passion and purpose at a time in South Africa’s history that demanded sensitivity and vision.

The final leg of the journey sees James and Cathy sail off into the sunset to Malta, a lifelong dream of theirs. These stories are neatly interwoven into James’s new perspective of executive coaching and how gestalt therapy has renewed his connection in all relationships.

You are going to want to keep listening to this episode!
