Take My Advice (I'm Not Using it) / Glenn Elliott - Entrepreneurship & Employee Engagement

Listen on

Episode notes

This week we have another fantastic guest. Glenn Elliott is the founder of Reward Gateway, a SaaS HR tech business, which two weeks ago sold for the third time, taking the total value of its acquisitions to well over half a billion dollars. 


Reward Gateway's platform enables companies used to better communicate with, reward and survey their employees and Glenn's experience there led him to write the book Build It : A Rebel Playbook for Employee Engagement in which he shared everything he’d learned about people and how to get the best out of them.


He's now Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Tenzing Private Equity and his job to help their portfolio companies to grow through advising founders and mentoring Tenzings' team.


You'll hear us talk about what Glenn's learnt from his experience scaling a tech company, how a decade of flexible work contributed towards their growth, why the notion of permanent employees is a fallacy and how even after the success he's achieved he still suffers from imposter syndrome.
