GROW EXETER – A word from our editor.
GROW is a celebration of all that is great about Exeter. It’s about the success stories, the entrepreneurs, the international conferences, the world class sport and, it’s about the people at the heart of our business culture; the ones who make it happen.
It’s an inspirational, high end, complimentary magazine that blurs the lines between business, lifestyle and wellness and which supports the drive to put Exeter on the global map, as one of the best cities, in the world, in which to work.
Its purpose is to help create future leaders, entrepreneurs and risk takers who are ready to drive our city towards global recognition, in line with the vision of Exeter City Council leader; Karime Hassan.
Inform. Inspire. Connect. Create Growth. Add Value.
I’m 100% with author and TED speaker Simon Sinek when he says ‘people don’t really care what you do, they care why you do it”. They care about your beliefs, your integrity & your values.
A great company culture isn’t just about perks, a sexy office and an awesome logo. It’s about the psyche; the conscience of the company itself.
My purpose, as editor, is to invite the very best of our business community, both locally and on a global scale, to add their voice to the city’s success whilst communicating individual stories across with honesty, passion and with deep rooted human connection.
“Humans are designed to want to care; its the one thing, however strong our other traits may be, that we cannot get away from. Give them a story they can care about; a story they can relate to, that will leave them with a better understanding of who they themselves are and you’ll guarantee their attention”
