The work landscape in the tech industry is broad and challenging. The ability to succeed in it requires a resilient mindset and the willingness to learn new skills. Everyone, all the way up to the CEOs of the biggest tech companies need to be able to learn from their mistakes and hold their hands up when they happen. This is the only way to create a positive culture.

In this episode James Fuller, the Co-Founder and CEO of Hnry, discusses how he and his wife Claire created Hnry after being self-employed.

He shares his own mistakes on this journey and the importance of showing contrition as a CEO. He also tells us about the successes of his own team and the perks of working for Hnry.
