#55 Mark Hollingsworth - How to improve emotional and stress resilience

January 10, 2022

Mark Hollingsworth is the CEO of the Nutrition Society, a scientific learned society, based in London, United Kingdom, a position he has held since 2014. I met Mark in 2017 when I was fortunate enough to work for the Nutrition Society and we have stayed in touch ever since. 

In this fascinating episode we discuss:

- Dealing with stress during military service

- Strategies to handle emotionally testing situations

- Resilience in a leadership position during COVID-19

- Coping with the death of loved ones

- and much, much more

A graduate of the Royal Air Force College Cranwell, Mark began his career by serving for 16 years in a variety of roles as a military officer in the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force, serving in Belize, Germany, Canada and the UK. Upon leaving the Royal Air Force Hollingsworth then developed extensive leadership experience in the non-profit sector, serving as a Director, Vice-President, Executive Director and Board Chair in Canada. This was followed by a two- year period as a visiting lecturer on Leadership at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, during which time he published two books on the basic skills of leadership. He returned to the United Kingdom in 2014 to take up his role as CEO of the Nutrition Society. 

He was awarded CEO of The Year for life sciences in 2018 by CEO Today Magazine, the Global 100 CEO of the Year for Life Sciences in 2019, and has been named in 2021 as one of the Top 20 Most Dynamic CEOs in the United Kingdom by CEO Publications.
