A Little Bit Radical - a business podcast from Standing on Giants

By Standing on Giants

The most exciting moments in business always start with an idea. An idea that is often a little bit radical…

In this bi-weekly podcast, we meet business leaders across industries who are doing things differently and bringing a little bit of radical thinking to their organisation. Listen in to get inspired on how to put your own ‘little bit radical’ ideas into action.

Who are we? We’re Standing on Giants. Born from the team that created giffgaff, we now work with Airbnb, Lenovo, Heineken, O2, and many more companies to build thriving communities of customers, staff, and stakeholders.

Coming Soon: 'A Little Bit Radical' - a business podcast from Standing on Giants!  Think you're radical? No? Maybe you'd like to be? Well, we've found that no radical thinker thinks they’re radical. They just think it’s common sense. And often, it is. We want to encourage people to believe in their idea that's ‘a little bit radical’ and help make it happen.  In each episode we meet a business leader who is just a little bit radical. These are people who are doing things differently, taking risks, and challenging the status quo to bring about exciting change to their business and the world.  In each episode we dive into: Little Bit Radical You- What about this guest's background and early years has led them to be a little bit radical? Little Bit Radical Work- Each guest works for an exciting company. Whether a startup on the bleeding edge of progress, or a much-loved household name, they'll share how their radical ideas and approach have brought about meaningful change and results in their organisation. Little Bit Radical World: We step outside the world of work and look outwards to hear what changes these radical thinkers would like to see in the world.  'A Little Bit Radical' promises to be a series of fascinating conversations hosted by Rob Fawkes from Standing on Giants.  Standing on Giants is an agency helping businesses around the world engage through community. Current clients include Airbnb, Lenovo, Heineken, and O2.
