This week our discussion includes learning from failure and how to spot the next big thing.
The biggest, wealthiest and most successful companies naturally get the most attention from the business press and broadcasters. But this masks the fact that failure is a key component of a dynamic economy. This week our guests talk about how to avoid failure, what to do if it can’t be avoided, and what they’ve learned from their own setbacks.
We also take a look at a positive way to ensure a company’s future: spotting new trends. Find out if our guests believe in market research – or if they eschew cold hard numbers and go with their gut instincts.
This week's guests:
Felix Dennis, founder and owner, Dennis Publishing
Rachel Elnaugh, entrepreneur and former owner of Red Letter Days
Bill Jordan, founder and chairman of Jordan’s Cereals
