S6E3: “Scaling an anti-fragile business” with Jonathan Satchell, CEO of Learning Technologies Group

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."
