Episode notes

Publishing phenomenon and Ted Talk sensation Simon Sinek (Start With Why, Leaders Eat Last, The Infinite Game) has launched his own imprint called Optimism Press. Through it he hopes to find the people and the ideas to realise his vision of a better world at work. For Simon, Matthew Barzun - who was US Ambassador to the UK for five years - is one of those people: "Matthew doesn't just turn existing ideas of management and leadership upside down, he completely blows them up and starts again." In this episode we hear how the image of America was born, how meeting the Queen led to a right royal gaff and the true meaning of the special relationship between the USA and the UK.
