Interview with Robin Field

In this short interview Robin Field, ex Chairman and CEO of Filofax explains:

  • Why CEO’s should work on only the vital issues in a business
  • How to build your strategy from the customer backwards
  • The 3 most important activities when taking over as a new manager
  • The exact strategy he used to turn around Filofax (you’ll kick yourself when you hear it, it’s so simple)
  • What goes wrong in the handover of a business that involves family members
  • How being lazy is a great attribute for running a business and running your life. Yep, less work with more success!
