About the Episode:
Welcome to another MentorCore! We are joined this week by Rupert Evill, Founding Director of Ethics Insight. Rupert is a risk and compliance practitioner, a mentor, and entrepreneuer. In our discussion, we cover a lot of ground on all three topics including:
How to approach bringing a risk mindset into an organisation that may not have it yet
Going out on one’s own and starting a business: how to prepare, knowledge and skills-wise to make that change?
Mindset differences between bootstrapping vs getting funded when starting a business
What it takes to get a business through difficult times, including a pandemic, as an entrepreneur
How the act of mentoring others can be a help to oneself in times of difficulty
We also find out how Rupert maintains wellbeing in the workplace, and we hear one of the most straightforward and powerful “most valuable thing you’ve ever learned from a mentor” we have ever had on the show. Tune in to hear all about it.
