Having contributed to growing Skyscanner from a 32-employees small startup to a GBP 1.4 Billion  valued company with over 1,000 talented people working across 60+ markets, Yara is the perfect guest to talk about growth mindset, which she talks about in this episode.

Having been in the field of journalism and PR for over 25 years, Adam has amassed a wealth of experience in storytelling.

Finally, we have Shamik Talukder, co-founder of Be Tagged, an influencer marketing company, and the founding member of the largest Radio FM Network in India, Radio Mirchi, and former Vice President at Viacom 18 Media.
