Square Peg Round Whole
The Next Frontier: Square Peg Employment, with The Neurodivergent Coach Samantha Nuttall
Show Notes

Samantha Nuttall is The Neurodivergent Coach and she talks to Lou about life as a neurodivergent mum to two neurodivergent sons and the interesting lightbulb moment she had that led her to develop her business as The Neurodivergent Coach.  Sam is passionate about helping neurodivergent people to overcome disability discrimination barriers with employment.  She's on a mission to change the life and employment outcomes for all Neurodivergent individuals, at an individual, organisational and systemic level.  Music to Lou's ears!  They get "fired up" as they chat and put the wrongs to right.  An energetic discussion that really will give listeners food for thought.
