Podcast: David Yelland, PR consultant & former editor, The Sun

David Yelland is the former Editor of The Sun, and is now a senior communications advisor to global CEOs.

In this in-depth interview, David discusses the challenges he faced as Editor; talks candidly about his successes and mistakes, and the reality of working with Rupert Murdoch; shares leadership lessons from his time at Harvard Business School; argues passionately against Brexit and offers his analysis of why the Remain campaign lost; and explains his work tackling alcoholism, inspired by his own recovery.
