Welcome to Inflection Points, hosted by Joe Hine. This podcast is an exploration of those pivotal moments in a company’s, founder’s or leader’s history that resulted in a step change in their growth. An inflection point has been defined as an event “that results in a significant change in the progress of a company, industry, sector, [or individual] …. considered a turning point after which a dramatic change occurred, with either positive or negative results”, “Investopedia”. Some of these events will be gradual and deliberate, others will be fortunate accidents, a dramatic shift created by external factors. We examine these inflection points through the stories of the leaders that experienced them. The goal of this podcast is to understand the drivers of these inflection points, how leaders / CEO’s reacted to them and what they learnt as a result.
