Love listening to it! Simon is such a natural interviewer and the interaction with guests is super informative. It’s great, not just a NZ perspective, but also broader business knowledge - for all ages and stages. Look forward to many more.
Just listened to the building great teams podcast and loved it. Think this would be a good regular podcast for an employee or job seeker that hopes to contribute more at work or climb the ladder, someone who wants to go into business on their own or someone in business already who needs inspiration. Sophisticated and in depth but also totally digestible for the newbie looking to up his game. Good insight into the history of NZ business, but applicable for people around the world.
I'm really enjoying this podcast! Simon asks questions I wouldn't think to ask, but yet learn so much from those answers. We have so many big, exciting brands in NZ that we never really get to know, so am enjoying smashing out the back catalogue of this podcast.
Brilliantly written, researched and clever interviewing from Simon Pound on a great range of clever New Zealanders - from the usual well established suspects all the way to exciting start ups. The perfect antidote if you're feeling jaded about podcasts!~ Dave Hayward
Fascinating long-form interviews with innovators and leaders
Frequently I listen to a bunch of episodes back-to-back. The discussions are fascinating, revealing the determination, skill, and luck that needs to be present for success. Simon Pound's curiosity helps reveal more depth in the people he interviews than might normally come across in, say, written profiles.
