Extracts from the featured interview:

“Digital technology offers powerful tools for social as well as business empowerment, giving access to solutions for challenging personal circumstances”

“Boards need to have far more digitally qualified directors on them”

“As a leader – whether in a business, charity, campaigning or social enterprise – make sure you’re always raising money”

“Always hire people better than yourself; don’t be daunted by that, but embrace it. If you surround yourself with smarter brains you will be in a much more robust position”

“As a leader, clarity of communication, relentlessly reiterated communication is crucial: what are we doing, why are we doing it, how are we going to do it?”

“Never lose sight of whatever it is you’re trying to deliver.”
