Arete is a Greek word that essentially means “the fulfilment of one’s full potential”. Or as the famous Greek author Homer wrote, “where heroes gather to realise their full potential”.

The Arete podcast is designed to showcase the careers of leading CEOs, Chairs and other successful senior leaders. Rather than a formal interview, this is a relaxed “fireside chat” style conversation, where Richard Triggs talks to the guest about their careers, key achievements, lessons learned along the way, and other interesting elements about how their careers have unfolded over the years.

The idea is that aspiring and incumbent C-Suite executives and Non Executive Directors will have the ability to listen to those “who have walked the path before them”, in order to gain some insights and wisdom, and thereby accelerate the listener’s own career to its fullest potential.

Richard is the Managing Partner of Arete Executive, a boutique executive search firm based in Brisbane.

Richard Triggs’ new book “Uncover the Hidden Job Market – How to find and win your next Senior Executive role” was released in 2015.

    203 - Mark Burgess - CEO & Managing Director - Quickstep Holdings

    The sky's the limit when it comes to aerospace, and ASX-listed Quickstep taking that literally. I spoke with Mark Burgess, MD and CEO, about the stellar growth the company has had in recent years, growing from a staff of 12 to 265 just on one manufacturing site alone.

    The company has diversified from being primarily focused on the international military market and now includes commercial transport, including sophisticated commercial drones.

    We discussed the hard recruitment and employment decisions Mark had to make to turn the company around when he took the helm some six years ago.

    It was a fascinating interview that will leave you in no doubt that Australia is at the leading edge of this important industry.

    202 - Andrew Penfold AM - Executive Director - Australian Indigenous Education Foundation

    When you can contribute to improving the education and prospects of young people, you can sleep at night knowing that your work is worthwhile. This interview gives us a brief, behind-the-scenes look at the work of an organisation that’s doing fantastic work and changing lives at the point where it’s most critical. It’s a testament to what can happen when a husband and wife start off with a simple, yet powerful idea.

Richard not only has some exceptional people with big names on the show, but also some lesser known people who have exceptional value..!
