Tom Fairey is the Founder and Head Coach at Stakester. Operating in the video game space, he took an idea from a scribble on a napkin to being worth over £50 million in just over two years. Now they are one of the biggest in the world at what they do. To help fund the growth of the business, he raised $1.3 million investment from a single LinkedIn post. 

Alongside this, Tom hosts the Back Yourself Show, a show with over 1 million listens, on which he speaks to investors, founders, and experts in the start-up field. 

Tom talks to us about how his leadership style has evolved through working in a number of very different environments, his three key leadership habits and how to build real, self-awareness. 

Tom also has a fantastic new book out – ‘How Not To F**k-Up Your Start-Up’ – and we have two copies to give away to listeners via the link in the show notes.
