Withology Podcast: Episode 3 – Madeline Bell

Not sure what “Withology” means? That’s because we made it up.


Extraordinary things happen through collaboration, influence and inspiration. No successful person has ever achieved their goals on their own. Host Brian Tierney sits down with the nation’s most successful business and industry leaders to discuss their personal journeys and unpack the stories and people who helped them get to where they are today.

Withology will explore the philosophy that Brian’s parents instilled in him at a young age: anything is possible with hard work and great people.


On Episode 3, Brian Tierney is joined by Madeline Bell, President and CEO of the renowned Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). After starting her career as a pediatric and home care nurse, Madeline switched gears to enter the administration and management side of the renowned children’s hospital – her experiences along the way have led her to become a truly prolific leader who has prioritized diversity, equity and inclusion, women’s advancement and open lines of communication in the workplace since Day 1.

Madeline’s podcast, “Breaking Through with Madeline Bell,” is available now on PodBean and her “Heels of Success” blog can be visited here.
