How to Go to Work - Nell Gifford

Nell Gifford

How to Go to Work
Welcome to episode eight of _How To Go To Work,_ the podcast that accompanies the book _How To Go To Work_ (Penguin, 2020). Each week authors Lucy Clayton and Steven Haines will be asking guest to take us right back to the beginning of their career. We’re not interested in stellar success stories or show off narratives – this is a show about the start of things. However famous our guests are, we start with their Saturday job. Tracking the progress from early work experience through to guest’s current professional life, we examine what was learnt on the way, how the journey developed, how people are held back or inspired further. This week’s guest is the legendary Nell Gifford, founder of [Gifford’s Circus](https://www.giffordscircus.com/). This special episode was recorded shortly before Nell’s death at the end of 2019 and is a tribute to her creative genius, work ethic and vision. * [How To Go To Work: The honest advice no one ever tells you at the start of your career — published by Penguin](https://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Go-Work-Honest-Advice/dp/0241399467/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1580036511&sr=8-1) * [Nell’s obituary in the Guardian](https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2019/dec/23/nell-gifford-obituary) * [Follow Gifford's Circus on Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/officialgiffordscircus/) * [Nell and the Circus of Dreams](https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0192765949/), Nell’s book This podcast is produced by [Origin](https://origin.fm/).
