ScaleUp Radio

Sep 28, 2020

This week’s guest on ScaleUp Radio is Phil Base from Offsite Servers, and IT solutions provider.

Normally, one of these things that happens in these intros is that we tell you about Phil’s journey, and how he’s arrived at his current role.

However, I’m not going to do that this time.

Phil’s story is so fascinating - and he tells it so well - so I’m going to leave him to tell it.

What I can say is this; I guarantee that you will have to listen to this episode twice.

We covered so much, that I’m only going to mention a couple of highlights here…

 - The process of bringing the business to a point where the directors aren’t needed by the business on a day to day basis.

 - Being honest - and amicable - when a partnership doesn’t work. You never know what’s going to happen in the future.

 - How important the handover is during an acquisition, no matter which side of the takeover you are. The value in having the new AND the old owner around for a short while is crucial.

 - When and where outsourcing should fit into your business. 

Phil tells the story of his scale up journey very well, and he’s very honest about the mistakes that he’s made in the past, but it’s the learning that he’s done from those mistakes that makes this a fascinating conversation.
