Leadership Lessons – Swimming with Sharks
Michael Tobin OBE is an English industry entrepreneur, businessman, author and philanthropist. He was CEO of FTSE 250 data center operator Telecity Group. In 2014 he was awarded an OBE for his ‘services to the Digital Economy’ in The Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Michael shared his fascinating and inspiring story. Despite a tough start in life – from frying pan to fire to abject poverty; escaping from a troubled home at the age of 7; to a civil war in Africa; to returning back to UK as a refugee in his own country – Michael believes he’s been lucky in life.
Michael shared some great and often very funny stories about his journey. Michael has some unconventional approaches – such as “forget about strategy” and arranging for his management team to swim with sharks (yes – real sharks!)
Michael has written 2 Bestselling Books:
Live, Love, Work, Prosper: A fresh approach to integrating life and work
Forget Strategy. Get Results. Radical Management Attitudes That Will Deliver Outstanding Success
