    278 Fail Forward with Henri Ghijben

    278 Fail Forward with Henri Ghijben

    Having failed his GCSEs and being told he was nobody, Henri Ghijben defied all the odds to run a successful tree surgery business. Then after he had built the company up to 47 staff, his business went under and he lost his family home. Learning from his mistakes and rebuilding from rock bottom using his four foundational pillars of business, Henri is now on a mission to help others avoid the same mistakes and if they do fail to fail forward.
     
    KEY TAKEAWAY
    “Fail forward. Do not be scared of failure. Do not fear failure. Embrace it. Failure is only a negative if you do not learn from it.”
     
    BOOK RECOMMENDATION*
    Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed - https://amzn.to/3ljzAJJ
     
    ABOUT HENRI GHIJBEN
    Growing up in Bury St Edmunds, Henri’s first memorable experience of failure left him with the lasting ability to never get lost. It proved to be the first of many times Henri would fail forward. But it wasn’t until he faced losing his home, business and possibly even his family, that he realised the truth. 
    Failure is only negative if you don’t learn from it.
    Ever thankful for the love and support of his family, the loyalty of his team and the help of business owners who helped him when the chips were down, Henri now lives in Southampton where he runs HRG Tree Surgeons, has growing property management and investment businesses and runs mentoring programmes for business owners, entrepreneurs and directors who are on their own growth journeys.

    277 Students Against Sexism with Camille Saunders, Kelvina Malaj and Harini Iyer

    277 Students Against Sexism with Camille Saunders, Kelvina Malaj and Harini Iyer

    Experiencing misogyny and underrepresentation from an academic perspective, three students initially came together to combat sexism and empower those with marginalised voices. Now with a mission to achieve gender equality as intersectional feminists, Camille Saunders, Kelvina Malaj and Harini Iyer are raising awareness ensuring that women’s voices are represented on a global scale. Starting in their home town, through the NOUS London blog and podcast, they are now expanding and representing women on an international level. With solidarity of feminism, Camille, Kelvina and Harini are students against sexism.
     
    KEY TAKEAWAY
    “That’s the beauty of feminism. Even if you don’t think you’re creating change, you are. People are noticing what you’re doing and saying and they feel supported by you even when you don’t realise it.”
     
    ABOUT CAMILLE, KELVINA AND HARINI
    Camille Saunders is studying French and Spanish at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and is hoping that through the podcast she can make the world a fairer place by reassuring women that they are not alone in their struggle, and that they always have the right to be heard. Alongside the podcast, she has also written several articles for the Nous blog (www.nouslondon.co.uk) on a range of social issues related to feminism.
    Kelvina Malaj is a first-year History and Politics student at the University of Warwick. She's an intersectional feminist who prides herself in being particularly passionate about tackling issues involving class, race, and gender, and hopes to see more of this discourse applied to mainstream education.
     
    Harini Iyer is a first-year undergraduate student at Hertford College, Oxford studying Geography. She hosts the NOUS podcast with Camille Saunders and Kelvina Malaj and is passionate about intersectional feminism and empowering female voices.
