Available on these channels and more

You’re a founder, board member or senior executive. Tasked with scaling your business profitably and sustainably. But you’re facing a complex, dynamic, volatile and uncertain environment. How do you make smart decisions about where to focus and how to stimulate innovation in a world of ecosystems? How do you use venture capital wisely? How can you upskill your team to make important decisions? These are questions — and more — that Chris Rangen has been advising on, speaking about and teaching for the last two decades. In this podcast find out what:

  • high-performing boards and executives do.
  • you can do to stimulate innovation and scale it.
  • role corporate venture capital can play.
  • ecosystems do to the way you strategise and operate.
  • you can do to upskill people through learning simulations.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
