In this podcast, we have the best guest; the stories will have you crying with laughter. Dominic Mellonie brings his unique take on what it means to be a Global Head of HR in today's commercial landscape. Everything from the trials and tribulations of managing disciplinary cases, how he nearly became an MI5 agent, until he realised national security isn't a priority on a bank holiday. The international travel and cultural differences, the dreaded calls after a work conference party, through to his take on companies managing COVID, mental health and working from home. There are some insights, some stories that are beyond believable and far too much laughing for either of us to remain professional.. Thanks, Dom, it was a blast!
I'm Dom Mellonie. I am currently Global Head of Human Resources for Motorsport Network and have been working in HR for waaaay too many years to think about. In that time, I've led HR in businesses such as Talk Talk and Expedia, have worked with Private Equity, Engineers of every description (from Games Developers to Nuclear Subs), Clothing Designers, Marketeers, Sales Teams and all manner of Folks from every corner of the world. In this podcast, I share some of my insights across my career, some stories and discuss the impact of Covid on businesses and the importance for Businesses and the wider Society to start taking Well-Being and Mental Health far more importantly than has been the case. Whenever Ruth and I catch up, there's laughs and guffaws a-plenty and this Podcast is no exception. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did doing it with Ruth - and that along with the mirth there are some things that resonate. If not, I blame my caffeine intake during the recording. Stay safe!
