I loved this talk by Neil Gaydon, CEO of Pace plc, one of the largest British technology companies most people will never have heard of.
Neil took over at Pace plc in 2006 when the company was doing £250 million revenue, losing £25 million a year and sitting at number 4, 5 or 6 in almost all of the markets it served. Some really great, simple ideas about strategy and culture – so many companies focus on the strategy without the culture. These days, strategy is almost a hygiene factor in business. Creating the right culture is critical.
Even for a Yorkshireman, this is straight talking.
This is a great story from the 2011 BLN Growth Forum, July 5th in Cambridge.
