Your #PowerHour with Chief Reporter Alev Doğan and CEO Valerie Mocker #Realtalk #TopTips #HowSheDoesIt


Being different - thinking differently, working differently, living differently to "how everyone else does it" - can be really hard. If you try to fit in, you notice yourself holding back or struggle to be fully yourself at work - you are not alone! In this episode I am speaking to Alev Doğan, who shares her courage and journey with us. At the start of her career she was told that her style of journalism was wrong. She stayed true to herself. And today is hosting a very successful political podcast that reaches up to 100,000 listeners each day.

But she takes every opportunity she can get to travel to Istanbul. And if you ever struggle to remember a magic spell from the Harry Potter world - Alev is the person to ask. She knows them all!
