Launching Episode 3 from our ‘bold stories’ podcast. In this episode Jo chats about her thoughts and feelings about the bold Social Leadership Programme and the ways she has since flourished as a social leader.
Jo Cowan is a co-ordinator for the Highland Senior Citizens Network. A Highland-wide network of local voices who strive to truly empower the voices of senior citizens across the Highlands including those living with dementia.
Last year along with her colleague Anne McDonald they both took part in the In-person and then Online bold Social Leadership Programme.
Jo comments ‘It instantly struck me that I needed to forget what I know about dementia and just remember what I know about people.’
