    Radio Show #413: Master Disruption for Value that Lasts

    Radio Show #413: Master Disruption for Value that Lasts

    Special Guest: Quentin Millington, Founder of London-based consultancy Marble

    When people think about ‘disruption’, the first thing that comes to mind is often technology. And companies rightly invest in technology and data solutions as a way to gain an advantage over their competitors.

    But disruption is more usefully seen as any force outside the control of the senior team that may affect the outcomes of its agreed strategy or the day-to-day running of the business. These forces often do not yield to the thinking, skills, aims, or activities that brought success in the past. A company must adapt if it is to thrive.

    In this podcast, Quentin Millington separates the challenge of non-stop disruption into elements that the senior team can talk about and actively manage. These include strategy, leadership, culture and practice, and dialogue with internal and external stakeholders. With a conscious approach to adaptation, companies can lessen the risks of a changing world and increase the value they create.

    A former Chief Operating Officer in investment banking, Quentin has worked with FTSE-100 and other multinationals to advance strategy, strengthen leadership, and enhance culture. He supports senior teams within complex organisations to deliver strategies that build resilience against disruption and create lasting value. Quentin’s past clients include Apple, Deutsche Bank, Informa, PwC, and UBS.

    Radio Show #409: Is there a Trade-off between Purpose and Profit

    Radio Show #409: Is there a Trade-off between Purpose and Profit

    Special Guest: Alex Edmans: Author of “Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit”

    Purpose is one of the corporate buzzwords of 2020, with the politicians, the public, and even investors themselves calling on businesses to serve wider society. But it seems unrealistic to think about purpose in a pandemic when companies are strapped for cash, and companies also have a responsibility to their shareholders. Is there a trade-off between purpose and profit, or is it possible for companies to achieve both?

    This podcast will critically examine the case for purposeful business, using rigorous evidence and real-life examples to show what works – and, importantly, what doesn’t. It will discuss practical ways for businesses of all sizes to put purpose into practice, and how investors and citizens can play their part. Professor Alex Edmans will draw on his new book, “Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit” which was named to the Financial Times Business Books of 2020.

    Join us as we discuss putting purpose into practice.
