In the episode, Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast by Samreen McGregor, executive coach, founder of Turmeric Group, and best-selling author of Leader Awakened!

Samreen founded Turmeric to bring businesses and people the insights, strategies, and skills they need to translate their goals to life. Samreen inspires leaders, teams and organisations to embrace adversity as a catalyst for empowerment and well-being.

Samreen, who is half Venezuelan and half Indian and bilingual in English and Spanish, inspires leaders, teams and organisations to embrace adversity as a catalyst for empowerment and well-being. She is described by her clients as rigorously expanding their rational, emotional, and intuitive capacity – creating improvements that really last. Find out more at

Samreen has a unique ability to create the conditions leaders need to stretch beyond their existing capabilities, with her interventions lying in a unique cross-section between business performance, behavioural change and embodied consciousness.

In her new book, Leader Awakened, Samreen explains how leaders can use their experiences as a powerful point for learning, empowerment, agency and improved well-being. The book provides a thought-provoking blend of practical examples and theoretical observations alongside Samreen’s personal experiences of trauma following her son's cancer diagnosis and a lifetime of grappling with questions of identity and belonging.
