Jonathan Satchell (CEO of Learning Technologies Group) talks with Xquadrant's Founder Richard Medcalf.
We're continuing our season on "Secrets of Scaling", where the CEOs from some of the fastest-growing companies in Europe and the USA (as measured by the Financial Times top 1000 rankings) share what's propelled their growth, what's held them back - and explore what it will take to reach the next level.
In this conversation, you’ll learn:
- The story of how Jonathan has scaled Learning Technologies Group from £8M to £190M turnover and from 100 to 1100 employees in just a few years
- The learning points and success tips from 17 acquisitions and mergers, and the "acquisition formula" that's been refined
- The "anti-fragility" that comes with a portfolio of ten operating businesses - and why "lean" might be just a little overrated
"My younger leaders are now injecting their own ambition into the whole story; everyone is pushing forward and it inspires you to think bigger and more on."
