Building a Team of Peers | Huddle

I gave a talk at yesterday’s TechCrunch Europe Geek’n’Rolla conference about dealing with growth, building a team of brilliant people and creating a great company culture. As I said in my speech, many of Huddle’s achievements make me very proud but (probably) the thing that I’m proudest of is the team of amazing people we’ve brought together.

My slides are below but if I had to summarise in three points I’d say:

  • Get everyone involved in the hiring process; this fosters a sense of family and buy-in
  • Recruit from your network wherever possible but if you do have to use recruitment agents then squeeze them as tightly as possible
  • As a business owner, continually ask yourself “is this a place I’d want to work?”
