EP 271 - Joining us for our first episode of 2024 is Philip Ogilvie, Managing Partner at Applifting, an international software development studio tailored for start ups, scale ups and enterprises.

Our chat with Philip unravels the inner workings of Applifting, from its company dynamics to the nitty-gritty of structure, culture, and ethics. We debate employee-owned companies and salary transparency — does it elevate or deflate a business? We also hear about Philip's days on the professional rugby field and why he thinks communication has become a lost art in the business world.
