Episode 1

Get the best from your team.

The best startup founders know how to get the best from their team. They set clear goals and priorities, they align sales, growth, customer success and product behind a singular vision.

I'll show you how to get clear on your priorities, how to align you team behind your north star and how to re-focus your team on the biggest priorities.

Learn fast to grow fast.

Speed is everthing. The most successful tech companies are the ones that learn the fastest.

I'll show you how to identify the drivers of growth and value. We’ll build a product strategy that articulates a path to a highly defensible product that locks in lasting value.

Delight your customers.

Great products don’t just satisfy the customer, they delight their users.

I'll show you how to find out what really motivates your customers and how to organise your teams so that you build high retention products that your users love.
