S6E6: “Growing and scaling to build a ‘double unicorn’” with Zoisa North-Bond, CEO of Octopus Energy Business

Zoisa North-Bond (CEO of Octopus Energy Business & Generation) 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.

Octopus Energy is the 23rd fastest-growing company in Europe, according to this year's Financial Times listing.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • The two "Amazonian" business levers that Octopus Energy has focused to create a $2B business in just 5 years
  • What the difference is between Growth and Scaling - and why both are important
  • How Octopus Energy has created a culture of ownership, where everyone takes responsibility

“We don't have HR because we believe that managers should manage people."
