MD Dave Morris participates in Leadership podcast

Dave Morris Business Leader podcast

Business leader and our MD, Mr Dave Morris has taken part recently in an episode of The Leaders Council podcast, which has been created to spotlight CEOs, directors, MPs and other leading figures and give a variety of perspectives on business leadership today.

Dave is interviewed by Scott Challiner discussing his experience from starting out on a successful career in the electronics industry at Marconi Instruments, through setting up his first engineering business in 1990 to the present day running 3 businesses. The podcast talks about tackling the dilemmas of the Covid pandemic, how he maintains morale, his current personal challenges and where he sees his businesses going in the future.

The interview begins with Scott asking Dave at which point in his career, he decided running his own business was the next step forward for him. “Gaining plenty of experience in an equipment manufacturer made me advocate some ideas as a leader including what changes I would make running my own business and having the passion to put them into action.”

However, once he had resigned from Marconi, Dave experienced a setback which could have potentially put his new plans on hold. “I broke my back shortly after in a trampoline accident. Once I was discharged from hospital, 6 months were spent lying on the dining room floor with a telephone to kickstart my new adventure.”

Find out how Dave Morris overcomes these challenges within the early stages of his business and more on the podcast.
