Earlier this summer, CarterBaldwin Executive Search Partner Andrea McDaniel Smith joined forces with Matthew Hall, Provost and VP of Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Christ Church Lake Forest Campus Pastor Ben Dockery, and Vivek Sarin, Founder and CEO of Juvo Company,  to launch a new podcast, Leading Forward.

Leading Forward features conversations on the connection between healthy leaders and healthy organizations. Each episode is hosted by Matthew Hall and a member of the Leading Forward hosting team and features industry leaders like Dave Evans, Co-Founder, Stanford Life Design Lab, D. Michael Lindsay, President, Taylor University, and Kelli Masters, President, KMM Sports, who kick off the podcast’s first three episodes.

In the latest podcast, Andrea and Matthew sit down with Bill Haslam, former Tennessee governor and Mayor of Knoxville, to discuss his recent book, Faithful Presence: The Promise and Peril of Faith in the Public Square, and how Christians can be faithful in their Christian identity wherever God puts them.
