Women in Propane Council presents: Through the Leadership Lens

Listen to our PodCast

(Her)story


Inspired by the April 2022 Women in Propane Council’s (WIP) 10th anniversary Celebration Summit in Nashville, Creator & Executive Producer Jessica Johnson came up with the podcast idea. “I wanted to help create something that was missing from the industry; a podcast from the WIP perspective, that pulls from the wealth of knowledge our leadership has.” Jessica explains the “why” behind the idea.

A couple brief chats and a handshake later, the podcast was born right then and there.

Our team is formed by professionals eager to educate and entertain people throughout the world on the topic of leadership. The motivation of each episode is that you the listener come away informed on what lessons and steps our guests endured to become the successful leaders of today and maybe for you to come away feeling inspired to take the necessary measures to help you become the effective leader of tomorrow if that is something that you aspire to be.

Or you can just sit back and listen to our seasoned hosts Bridget Kidd and Freddie Ridler and absorb the relaxing conversation.

So let me officially introduce you to our podcast. WIP presents: “Through the Leadership Lens”. With the help of our marketing wizards Peini Spinazzola and Chelsea Uphaus you can check back on this site and look for us on social media regarding our episodes and links on where to find them.

Thanks for listening and stay tuned.
