Episode 20 with Declan Doyle, CEO at Bidvest Noonan
Aidan has been working in and analysing companies for decades, and while much of that time is spent focusing on the financials what is more fascinating is how companies operate, how the entrepreneurs started them, and the business people/managements who run them.
In this new podcast series, we are going to talk to these people to get insights into their journey, their highs and lows, their management styles, and the lessons they have learned along the way.
But as with most things, work/life balance is essential, so it won’t just be about the professional developments they have made through the years, but also the personal ones.
With every decision comes that sliding door moment when the future course of the business can be dramatically changed for the good or the bad and getting into their minds in the time before and after these decisions will provide a wealth of lessons for those listening, that may be faced with similar ‘moments of truth’.
