Talking Business with Jason Stockwood | Episode 11
In this episode we’re Talking Business with Jason Stockwood Jason is the Vice Chairman of Simply Business and it’s difficult to sum up his career in a paragraph ... Vice-Chairman & CEO at Simply Business (acquired for £400m in 2017) Non-Exec at Skyscanner MD of Match.com & Lastminute.com Simply Business won ‘best place to work in the UK’ in ‘15 & ‘16 Jason was voted ‘Best Leader in the UK’ in 2016 and in 2018 he published his first book ‘Reboot’ Jason has also invested in 25 companies, including Sanctus. In this episode Jason talks to us about: - how making money isn’t the end goal - how growing up on a council estate and studying philosophy translated to being good at business - why the existential question ‘who are you?’ drives him so much - how it felt to make a life-changing amount of money - why genuinely caring about people has been good for business — Jason is one of the most successful people I know but also one of the most genuine and I felt lucky to get the chance to sit down and talk business with him for an hour - hope you enjoy :) GB x

Talking Business with James | Episode 10
In this episode we’re Talking Business with James James is my best mate and co-founder @sanctus and in this one we talk about one topic in particular ... ‘How you do business is more important then why you do business’ We started by talking about the concept of a ‘glassbox brand’ and how companies have nowhere to hide anymore now that people get to see behind the scenes through social media and platforms like Tripadvisor, Glassdoor and even Netflix. We talk about companies like Revolut, SportsDirect, Boohoo and Qantas and Scott asks us about how we run Sanctus and what that’s been like for us - we also do a round-up of our last 3 guests ... Tom, Damien & Mills This is the kind of conversation me and James have every day so it was fun to get him on the podcast and Talk Business - it won’t be the last time we have him on! I’d love to know what people think about this topic - email me on george@sanctus.io if you have any thoughts/feedback - hope you enjoy :)
