Episode Description

For this episode, I had the pleasure of talking to the inspiring, global leader Dr. Stella Peace. Stella is the Chief R&D and Quality Officer at the largest Frozen Food Company in Europe, Nomad Foods.

Packed full of insight and information to help inspire you no matter where you are in your career. Join us as we discuss Stella’s impressive career in R&D, the importance of finding your purpose, good role modeling and communication as a leader.

Stella is a member of the Nomad Executive Team and she currently leads a team of over 150 scientists across Europe. In this episode, she explains her beginnings in the industry and the attributes that have helped her along her incredibly successful journey. We discuss the idea of good leadership during a pandemic and how it has forced us to ‘innovate the way we innovate’.  We also discuss staying on top of emerging trends such as sustainability and plant-based diets and the shift into online shopping.

Finally, Stella shares some of the lessons she’s learned over the past year, the future of Nomad Foods, finding the right work-life balance and the benefits of taking time out to engage with team members.
