ScaleUp Radio

Jul 17, 2023

Hello I’m Granger Forson or find me on LinkedIn.

This time on ScaleUp Radio, I speak with James Wilkes, the founder and CEO of Wilxite limited.


Wilxite is a software development company based in Stroud with a 27 strong team who are based around the world. James started the business 12 years ago, built on the ashes of a previous business, he created.


As always, we covered a lot of ground including:

  • Building a client retainer model allows for profitable growth.
  • Building a relationship with clients through the delivery of quality, builds trust.
  • Attitude is key, we are all in people businesses regardless of what you do.
  • Empower your team to take risks and to learn.


What I love about this conversation with James, and we continue long after the conversation stopped recording, is that his experience in creating businesses he says is as much about your motivation of where you want to get to, as it is about what you learn. The first influences the second significantly.


I know you’ll get a huge amount out of this episode.
