Hello I’m Granger Forson
or find me on
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,
As always, we covered a lot of ground including:
- Building a client retainer model allows for profitable
- 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.
