75. Where are they now? Dan Reed on going back
Show Notes

Today’s episode is part of my series ‘Where are they now’ to check up on how some of my past guests are getting on and how sometimes the best laid plans can go differently.

And today I am speaking with Dan Reed on the concept of boomerang employees. This is not just a concept, but personal too. Very personal.

was a guest on the show back in August 2021 on episode 46 titled ‘Networking Secrets from the Career Dad’ and we had chatted a week or so after he started at Adobe, his dream company. 

Then in Jan 2022, Dan made the surprise announcement on LinkedIn that he was going back to his former employer Barclays Bank. 

Why would he do that? And how did he go back? How was the journey? Dan reveals it ALL, he literally holds nothing back.  We talk about things that a lot of us hesitate to talk about: shame, embarrassment, depression, mental health, consequent weight gain, therapy, pride.

Hope you take away some key lessons you can apply to your own career!
