In this episode Kimon and Richard explain why they are launching the NBN Entrepreneurship and Leadership podcast, the topics they are going to delve into with their guests and what aspects of their guests’ entrepreneurial journeys they are most interested in. What has been the role of background and upbringing, social and family pressures, education (or lack of it), and their attitudes to competition and luck. Despite their common business history Kimon and Richard highlight differences in their experiences and how they believe their varying perspectives will lead to a solid exploration of what can be learned from the guests. If you want to get a sense of what this channel is all about, and why it should be interesting to listeners who are into entrepreneurship and leadership, this is a great place to start.

The NBN Entrepreneurship and Leadership podcast aims to educate and entertain, sharing insights based on the personal story of our carefully selected guests aiming for the atmosphere of an informal conversation in a bar or over a cup of coffee. Follow our channels on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter.
