"My driving force in my career is that I want equal rights, I want equality, I want to be recognised in my profession for who I am and what I'm capable of," says Susan Nicholas who will shortly take up the post of president of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture and is one of a select number of female horticulturists in positions of real power within the industry.

In the latest Horticulture Week Podcast, hosted by HW technical editor Sally Drury, Nicholas discusses the priorities for the CIOH during her tenure, including the need to restore higher level horticultural qualifications, reach out to the young and the changing status of women within the industry.

Producer: HW digital content manager, Christina Taylor
