Podcast: Becoming a Business Chameleon

In these disruptive times, your business will grow only if you’re willing to adapt.

How we do business today isn’t how we’ll do business even a year from now.

As a result of this whirlwind disruption, adaptability has become the most valuable currency in the world of business. Put another way: Successful leaders must think and act like a chameleon.

In this episode of Longitudes Radio, a trio of industry experts chat with the BBC’s Samantha Simmonds about the importance of adaptive leadership and explore the most consequential changes rippling up and down global supply chains.

Holly Tucker, co-founder of online marketplace Not on the High Street, joins business development guru Roger Flynn and UPS’S Richard Currie for an insightful conversation loaded with practical advice for those weighing how best to navigate the breakneck pace of international commerce.

As the experts point out, you can’t simply dump money into the latest technologies – the tech arms race comes with a price.

But there are opportunities as well, especially for small businesses that can plug into the e-commerce ecosystem and become major players seemingly overnight.

Come gather ’round people … for the times they are a-changin’.

Holly Tucker is co-founder of Notonthehighstreet.com, an award-winning online marketplace for creative small businesses and their products.
