Hello I’m Granger Forson
or find me on
This time on ScaleUp Radio I speak with Adam Jacobs
the owner of Bloom Procurement Services.
Bloom is an innovative business that links the public
sector and it’s needs for services with suppliers based on output
needs not procurement contracts. They started just over 10 years
ago, have 100 staff and celebrated their 10 year anniversary in the
Houses of Parliament.
What’s interesting in Adam’s story is how being an
entrepreneurial leader is about ensuring the vision is great, and
that everyone always understands it. It is never a once and done
As always, we cover a lot of ground, including:
Your business culture is never done. You must work at it constantly
and develop it.
You must build the “plumbing” first to make the value flow, then
you can scale your business.
is so important to build in the business the opportunity for
Networking that leads to Collaboration that then leads to
- Businesses succeed by small improvements everyday
What is wonderful about this conversation with Adam
is how his passion for helping our public services achieve better
outcomes at less cost through clever procurement drives everything
his business does.
