In this episode of Doing the Opposite: Business Disruptors, Jeff Dewing speaks to CEO, investor and author Julio Bruno. Julio has led many multinational companies including Time Out Group, and is currently Chairman of Mercato Metropolitano, London’s first Sustainable Community Market with 5 locations in the city and expanding internationally. He is also Board Director of Pacha Group, a global entertainment and luxury hospitality platform.
Julio describes himself as an international citizen, born in Spain but having lived and worked all over the world. He explains why he has ultimately settled in the UK and considers himself grateful to have won the ‘demographic lottery’ by being born in a western-culture country.
What motivates people? What engages workers within an organisation and what might encourage people to leave or look for the next challenge? Julio reflects on how his many interests have motivated him to achieve his aspirations in life, and reveals a mindset he has – that he even once gave himself a promotion!
There’s been a lot of talk in the news recently about the ‘Great Resignation’. Julio believes that rather than a resignation, it is in fact the ‘Great Re-Assessment’ as people reconsider their goals, and values and strive to improve their lives and their relationship with work.
