Leading Security Provider That Cares

Condor Security is a Canadian security company that was established in 2001 by Benjamin Tabesh. It provides a variety of security services to businesses, residential communities, and individuals. Recently, Benjamin has been recognised in the Most Influential CEO Awards 2023, so here we take a closer look into his company and approach.

Condor Security offers security consulting, risk assessments, security planning, security training, and physical security services that include manned guarding, condominium concierges, and mobile patrols. Additionally, it has technology divisions that provide security system integration, access control, and surveillance solutions.

The core values that Condor Security is built from have been key for its ongoing success. Firstly, it is committed to providing clients with the highest standard of services possible. Challenges within any industry are unavoidable, and are part of running a business, which is why Benjamin encourages forward thinking. This ensures that Condor Security is able to find solutions to all the security challenges that may arise. In addition, another of its values is training, which goes hand in hand with the quality of its services. The employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver clients with the best solutions to their needs.            

Client satisfaction is central to all Condor Security does therefore, customer focus is an essential value that is always present. All that the team does is with each client in mind, which is why it keeps away from the one size fits all approach to security. Every client is unique, and the team get to know their needs and requirements to provide them with exactly what they are looking for. What’s more, not having set packages avoids clients paying for equipment that they don’t necessarily want or need.

Benjamin ensures that the workplace culture is supportive, inclusive, and empowering which is then reflected on the team’s performance and job satisfaction. Currently the industry is seeing a shortage of qualified security professionals, and this has been a challenge that Condor Security has had to overcome.

However, the company has the advantage of a culture that attracts candidates and keeps them motivated and engaged. Benjamin believes that taking great care of its team is essential. The ongoing success of the company is a common effort and Benjamin is immensely proud of what the entire team has built together.  

Benjamin’s leadership style is very hands on, he is very involved in the everyday operations of Condor Security and is known for his ability to connect with all members of the team. Throughout the years the company has grown and evolved which has pushed Benjamin’s leadership style to develop alongside it.. With the growth of the company Benjamin has had to learn how to delegate tasks and responsibilities which has helped him focus on the bigger picture through the company’s long-term goals. Now he is more focused on strategic planning, with a deeper understanding of the industry and market trends.

Currently, Benjamin has been planning the upcoming year for Condor Security. He is looking to expand its services and capabilities to meet the ever-changing needs of its clients by making advanced security services available. To achieve this, Benjamin is investing in new technologies such as artificial intelligence, biometric recognition, and other cutting-edge technologies. On top of that, he is going to develop new training programs to provide more specialised skills to his team. Benjamin enthuses, “This will help us to provide more specialized services to our clients and ensure that our team members are equipped with the knowledge and expertise needed to meet the evolving needs of the industry.”

Leading a company comes with a great deal of responsibilities, which involves the customer, the employees, and also the community. The values of the company are a direct representation of what Benjamin stands for. When it comes to the community, he believes that companies have the responsibility to give back, and he is committed to helping and supporting people wherever he can. Condor Services partners with non-profit, charitable organisations with the hope of making a positive difference while building a strong bond with the people that it works closely with.  

Benjamin’s commitment to his company and the community is inspiring, and it reflects a great level of compassion and care to what truly matters most – people. He reflects leadership skills that are able to successfully push a company towards great highs while also being humble and considerate of those that surround him. He wants to be part of building a better future where people are the main priority. This is why it comes as no surprise that Benjamin has now receive the title of Most Influential CEO 2023 – Ontario.

Innovation and Internationalisation in Italy

Carlo Russo is the CEO at, a consultancy aimed at helping Italian companies who want to develop their business activities abroad through international projects. As the recipient of Most Influential CEO 2023 – Tuscany (International Trade & Development), it seems like a good time to take a closer look.

The founder and CEO of, Carlo Russo, is passionate about innovation and internationalisation. He is involved in not-for-profit Consulting, Management Consulting, Marketing Consulting, and Business Consulting. He is the go-to person when it comes to starting business abroad, being a specialist in defining and implementing company plans and policies, defining business strategies, and assisting organisations with their action plans in terms of budgets, investments, partnerships, and markets. can help develop trailblazing business plans fully capable of optimising business processes. It offers strategic consulting, acting as the right-hand man for its partner businesses, helping them to navigate fast turnarounds and manage difficulties. It supports Italian companies in development and transformation, intuiting advice based solely on their individual needs to offer a service that is tailor made. This creates value for companies through helping them to develop plans and create new opportunities in new geographic regions. is itself based in Italy, with locations in Milan, Florence, and Rome, but it offers internationalisation for its customer companies in many different areas. Its operations cover Italy, the Commonwealth of Independent States area (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Krgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Georgia), the Balkan regions (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania), the Gulf area (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman, Iran, Itaq), France, Spain, Turkey, and Malta.

The team Carlos leads at, is made up from a pool of cosmopolitan experts and consultants, all operating at the highest level and with considerable experience in the field. These professionals, guided by Carlos, support projects and paths of international business for companies intending to develop or consolidate their activities abroad. acts as a partner and a problem solver, occupying the role of ‘Service Company’ alongside its customers. Constant attention is paid to changes in international economic scenarios, and all the requirements necessary to allow companies to flourish in the current global market.


“In a global market, having excellent managers is no longer enough to internationalize a company: it is necessary to open up to external specialists. How to build a successful foreign plan for an SME? Business ‘as usual’ is no longer an option in a world characterized by economic upheaval, geopolitical crisis and climate change. As a professional with experience in international markets, I have come to the conclusion that there are key elements missing…”


Carlos writes numerous social media posts about internationalisation, having lately covered topics such as female representation on boards of directors, and the current energy crisis. In a recent article he identified 3 false myths about internationalisation. The first one concerns companies thinking that to expand they need to be big. Although size helps, according to Carlos it is in no way a prerequisite for going abroad. Sometimes, it can even hinder progress as large companies can be more set in their ways, making adaptation difficult. Smaller companies can be more flexible and agile. The second false myth concerns people thinking that international markets are risky. Carlos clarifies that actually investments in a new market, which are often joint shared ventures, can be significantly lower risk than domestic ones. Sometimes, for example in emerging markets, companies can even market a product at double the normal price. The third myth Carlos has busted is that going international has to be done one market at a time. In fact, he says, it’s much more a matter of finding the right market for the business and going in prepared. In this way, many companies have successfully expanded into multiple geographies at once.

As an open, sharing, and collaborative company, is able to partner up with companies to help them achieve their exigencies. Its general purpose is to improve their competitiveness through encouraging them to operate in the international and national markets. It will promote companies abroad, guiding them every step of the way in the acquisition of new customers and new orders. Its professional services take into account awareness of areas that may be characterised by unique territorial, cultural, regulatory, economic and political issues. It determines different methods of development with particular attention paid to the risks derided from exercising business activities in such a market. 

When looking at new business initiatives in foreign markets it is essential to pull together a complete business plan that defines the project and determines all the strategic, financial, and economic aspects. has all the appropriate skills and knowledge necessary for successfully achieving business objectives. It will evaluate all the technical and commercial aspects of the expansion program, supporting its partners through increasing their levels of territorial diversification. It enables business opportunities through international marketing strategies, and creation of sales networks abroad. The creation of this new international structure is destined to acquire new market shares in the chosen country. will also closely monitor all sources of information on the international procurement sector, and opportunities presented by the main multilateral development banks.

It will deal with the analysis of the decision to operate abroad, the definition of objectives, and the identification of target markets. Once that process has been cleared, it will move on to definition of the modalities of mapping entry into the target markets, economic and financial planning for internationalisation, and development models and entry strategies in foreign markets. Moving forward, it will look at foreign trade techniques including contractual, fiscal and customs aspects. Then it will search for financial and industrial partners, before finally reaching the closing stage, export of the product.


“In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, we are all continually called to confrontation and dialectic. participates, with companies, or for companies, in negotiations for the conclusion of commercial contracts and diplomatic or trade union agreements and for the resolution of company crises.”


When it comes to negotiation, it’s good to have working on your behalf. It will carefully prepare dialogues, analyse the various opportunities and problems, and prepare its business partners to face any challenges they might come across. It will also deal with public affairs and lobbying. Identifying knowledge gaps that need to be addressed regarding influential but perhaps poorly informed persons. will ensure the appropriate persons have information provided to them to make fully informed decisions. It sees building a path that brings awareness into the decision-making process as the optimal choice. It operates under the perception that in reality the relations entrepreneurs cultivate with institutions play a fundamental role in the definition of the business strategy. Therefore, they must be guided by a strategic programme. This is necessary when it comes to realising the objectives of both types of bodies, institutions and businesses. With working on your behalf, in an operational context, it is possible to maximise such basic relational techniques.

The tailor-made service offers is paying dividends when it comes to the international competitiveness of Italian companies. Helping to find new sale channels abroad, and developing the entrepreneurial initiatives in foreign territories is exactly the spirit of partnership it celebrates. With Carlo Russo at the helm, it is certainly a company more than capable of innovating business plans and optimising processes on the international playing field. In this capacity it is truly going from strength to strength.

Innovation With Yooo In Mind

Businesses that truly push their customers to the forefront of their every move are absolutely imperative for the advancement of the corporate landscape. Founding, organising, and overseeing a plethora of companies under his parent company, YoooGroup, Benjamin Willmore has caught our eye. We take a closer look at the admirable work that Benjamin does as he wins Most Influential CEO 2023 – Surrey (Investment Management).

In 2017, Benjamin Willmore launched YoooGroup, a private-owned investment firm, to
incorporate YoooServ, Yooodle, Bomboni, Bookify, and Bla Bla. With an exciting mixture of bars and cafes to an estate agency, premium office spaces, and software, YoooGroup has swiftly become more than substantial – it is an unbreakable goliath within the business world.

With YoooGroup, Benjamin had formed a business that would make waves across a selection of industries whilst putting customer satisfaction and team morale first. One of his greatest
achievements is YoooServ, which was launched in 2019, after years of hard work and a vision for a better way of doing things.

Linking quality with affordability, flexibility, and fantastic customer service, Benjamin
embarked on a journey towards unrivalled success as YoooServ completely took off.

YoooServ is proud to cover commercial office space in order to shape a better world for us all.


Benjamin’s background within the working world covers many areas from hospitality to
estates, making him a well-rounded, informed, and talented as a jack of all trades. Benjamin’s
experiences led him to working with, and for, many companies over the course of his career –
and taught him a lot about how he prefers to manage people.

In an article from the Successful Founder (Meet the Successful Founder: Benjamin Willmore
| The Successful Founder) we learnt more about how his negative experiences also shaped his
future as a successful founder and CEO of the group. He said, “YoooServ was spawned accidentally as a direct response to my own negative personal experiences of trying to find the right serviced office for my estate agency business Yooodle. I was really unimpressed with the quality and service of what was available locally.

“Having been fed up with these poor standards, I wanted to create something different – a
new way to work, with well-designed spaces and outstanding facilities that foster better culture, productivity, and staff retention.”

Benjamin also tells us more about his leadership style. He says, “Mine has been grown from
years of grafting in different trades and industries. I spent so much time watching others and how they interacted, seeing their mistakes and nurturing my own style. I have never been one to read a book about someone else or follow others as I feel that I can write my book and make my own mistakes.”

Benjamin is proud of his team and what they do, but without his drive, vision, and innovative approach YoooGroup would not be where it is today. He is a CEO with compassion, and he
always looks out for his staff so that every member of the team can feel part of something that is bigger than themselves. He tells us, “I interact with the team every day. They will
come to me if they have troubles in their life, they feel relaxed and know that they can approach me on anything.”

From the very beginning, this open-door approach has never been alien to Benjamin. A successful CEO, or any member of senior management, incorporates care into everything they do – and Benjamin is particularly influential due to his approach. When elaborating on the importance of his team, he enthuses, “They are the success; I had the ideas and vision, they have implemented it and brought it to life. Sitting here, I can hear laughter in the background. I can see the team working away on different projects. It’s a really good buzz.”

As YoooGroup continues to serve small businesses to global billion pound/dollar companies,
Benjamin’s approach keeps both them and the end customer in mind. He believes in making their industries a better place, keeping people happy, and flexing his creative muscles throughout every endeavour – daily, weekly, yearly.

Any challenges that YoooGroup has faced have been met with an innovative approach and a
positive attitude. YoooGroup has grown substantially over the years gone by and now, with so much experience behind him, Benjamin can proudly lead a team exactly the way he believes teams should be led.

For the future, Benjamin is in talks with numerous investors and funds to help build his vision while the team are planning on opening 3 more serviced locations – and add in 4 more corporate managed tenancies. Benjamin shares, “Our app company Bookify.Space is growing extremely well, with new clients joining each month The cafe business Bla Bla has its first location, with a second being secured, we plan to add 2-4 new café’s a year for the next 5 years.”


“I will just keep going and going. I love watching people grow, seeing them develop, and for the team to always feel secured. I guess in a way, I won’t stop as the end goal isn’t decided.”


Winning Most Influential CEO 2023 – Surrey (Investment Management) is yet another fine
achievement for Benjamin as his upward trajectory continues. We are excited to see where his career takes him next.

From serviced offices and managed office spaces to indulgent, top-tier bars and restaurants,
YoooGroup has Yooo covered. If you would like to find out more, please visit the website

One Giant Leap…

Having launched the concept of giant smartphones back in 2011, tech pioneer Mark Jones has taken Giant iTab from a fledgling company to a highly respected global brand with multiple awards and global partners around the world. We speak to Mark and find out more about his innovative range of products that have propelled him forward in the digital era, as he is crowned Most Influential CEO 2022 – London, United Kingdom.

Like many before him, Mark  Jones started out as a one-man band working from his dining room table with an abundance of ideas, a very small budget, and an acute passion for film. Having worked in film & media for MGM and Sony Pictures, Mark recognised the undeniable benefit of digital presentation and is a true believer in the universal truth that‘content is king’.

Combining a degree in engineering and experience working with touchscreen manufacturing, he saw the potential for a ‘giant smartphone’, having observed that 50% of attendees at a leading tech exhibition were looking at the large touchscreens on offer, whilst the other half were on their new iPhones – leading to his eureka moment for combining the two!

From relatively modest beginnings, he quickly made friends with major brands and built a network of reliable ‘best of breed’ technology supply partners who have helped form the backbone of Giant iTab’s client portfolio for many years. Recognising the enormous contribution made by digital pioneers like Tim Berners-Lee and Steve Jobs, Mark often refers to his own company as “standing on the shoulders of giants”.

Mark’s current role as a proactive CEO is balancing the executive management of Giant iTab, whilst being at the epicentre of generating the vision to take the company to even greater heights. This involves succession, bringing in experienced people to take over the day-to-day running of the business, and creating more time for driving new product development, building professional teams, and securing more global business.

As an independent, family-owned company with a dynamic team of specialists that services the full spectrum of the event industry – from exhibitors, through to conferences, organisers, venues, experiential agencies, and stand builders – Giant iTab’s international footprint and partners span across four continents. The company’s work ethic and drive rotate around its core values and purpose: “making presentation technology more familiar and more engaging by leveraging the most significant digital device in the world… the smart phone.”

Before they became event profs, the giant smartphone concept was originally designed to be sold into the retail and e-commerce market – and then serendipity herself delivered the events business into the team’s hands!


“We had a good idea and worked hard to make it happen. We were also fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. The events business was showing interest in the use of technology to deliver a better visitor experience, and smartphone apps were being created as digital show guides for almost every large event. The need to make a big impact in a short amount of time became a key market driver for the growing exhibition and event sector.

                                                                                            – Mark Jones, Founder CEO


Leveraging the success of the smartphone, Mark has carved an important “niche” in the market as a global supplier to blue chip companies and the exhibition and events market, providing a range of giant smartphone solutions which have been proven to create better visibility for their clients, sponsors, and exhibitors, by providing more engagement and an improved customer experience for visitors to events, exhibitions, and conferences all over the world. As a result, the company has won multiple awards including the prestigious EN Best Supporting Supplier Award and EN Best Sales Tool 2022, forging Giant iTab into the event tech history books.

After speaking with Mark, it’s clear that from his more than 6 years as CEO, his leadership style has been shaped around the events industry, even becoming a notable thought leader. He’s created a progressive and high-performing team supported by a healthy work environment, with the foundation of his leadership style being based upon core values revolving around honesty, work ethic, performance, generosity, people first, service and support. It’s evident he adds value to everything he’s involved in within his company, and this shows as Giant iTab has translated it’s attentive level of care into higher client retention and stronger brand loyalty year on year.

Mark handpicks each staff member to ensure they possess the qualities best suited to the core values of the company, and that they can demonstrate the skills needed, not just to fulfil the requirements of their individual positions, but to showcase that they have the communication, self-awareness, and technical skills needed to engage with senior members of staff and clients at all levels. This high calibre of personnel creates a competitive and progressive environment, simultaneously supporting each other to reach a common goal, which ultimately, is the driving force behind the company’s continued successes.

In light of the global Covid-19 disruptions, rendering the live events and conference industry to zero, Giant iTab’s bounce back has been nothing short of phenomenal. Having been chosen to build custom giant smartphone solutions for TikTok, the fastest growing social media brand in the world, at a time where live events and conferences were completely off the cards, Mark took it upon his shoulders to rise to the challenge and deliver an amazing series of innovative products.

When live events were finally back on, Mark understood the necessity to diversify and adapt to the challenging circumstances by introducing ‘smartphone sanitisers’ so events can demonstrate they are following government guidelines to combat Covid-19 and provide a safe environment for staff and visitors, truly bringing to life that “necessity is the mother of invention”. Mark’s trailblazing and thoughtful nature during these challenging times has enabled Giant iTab to continue to procure high-profile partners as well as create a very pragmatic and elegant new solution to its product range.

With the growing appetite for success and innovation, Mark and his team are always developing their product range, with the ultimate goal of improving user experience and options for their clients. Their most recent project involves the design, manufacture, and marketing of their 7th generation model, the ‘G007’ – otherwise known as the ‘Salesmate or Executive Sales Tool’. This is your very own ‘portable’ giant smartphone – perfect for the ‘on the go’ event prof. or salesperson looking for a lightweight sales tool to carry with them and present all their apps, websites, social media, and other digital content more effectively. The fact that this particular giant smartphone comes in a custom briefcase compliant with airline hand-luggage allowances, makes it the ‘must have’ sales tool of today!


Mark’s Simple Tips for CEO Success

“Be optimistic. Believe in yourself. Trust in your own capabilities. Know your CEO style. Revisit your assumptions on a daily basis. Stay focussed on what your best at. Set achievable goals. Communicate effectively. Search for the best in everyone and build the loyalty of a good team around you by showing you care. Leverage technology. Take the role of CEO with pride and act as a true north compass bearing with all your company’s, colleague’s and client’s best interests at heart. Celebrate your journey”

Fleet Management You Can Trust

Supplying company cars from either a large or small fleet can sometimes result in headache after headache. With so many statistics and variables to keep on top of, it can feel like a mammoth task to undertake within your corporation. This realisation struck Simone Costantini in 2001, and he has since assembled Fleet Support SRL to resolve these issues. We discover how Simone came to be awarded with the title of Most Influential Corporate Mobility Software CEO 2023 – Italy, and what his incredible company can do for a vast array of clients.

As a company with over 40 years of combined experience in car management, Fleet Support SRL was established in 2001, only to become the leading solution provider within the Italian automotive sector just over a decade later. Its focus on long-term rental and corporate fleets has allowed it to truly hone its craft over the twelve years since its inception, and none of it would have been possible without the visionary mind of Simone Costantini.

Awarded with the title of Most Influential Corporate Mobility Software CEO 2023 – Italy, Simone has made an imprint on the fleet management industry that’s impossible to ignore. As a result, he’s managed to create a company that’s client-focused, all whilst placing an intense emphasis on making fleet management as seamless and stress-free as possible. Whether it be handling a small corporate fleet, or a large collection of vehicles, Simone has geared Fleet Support SRL to handle each fleet with equal levels of skill and prowess.

At its heart, Fleet Support SRL is a company that acts as a solution provider and software house. Thanks to its constant updating, it’s able to provide a personalised service for corporate mobility that has yet to be contested within Italy. It’s this drive to develop new managerial and technological solutions within the automotive field that has driven Simone to constantly keep updating his company’s practises, which, in turn, allows his passion for the industry to truly shine.

When becoming the CEO of Fleet Support SRL, Simone set out with one core mission: to bring companies management solutions for car fleets that are efficient, whilst also impacting them in a positive economical way. And, thanks to a knowledgeable internal culture that Simone has been able to foster throughout his time as CEO, he’s been able to forge a reality from what was one an ambitious dream.

Now, Fleet Support SRL has a huge client base throughout all of Italy, and its fantastic reputation is irrefutable. One client of Simone’s expressed how Fleet Support SRL, as a management service, is “the only one in the automotive sector to be able to manage your fleet, be it large or small!”. This, in itself, acts as a testament to the brilliant minds behind Fleet Support SRL, and none of it would be possible without Simone’s prowess as a highly competent CEO.

Over his time working within the industry of fleet management, Simone came to understand the inner workings of the sector, and which aspects needed to be focused on in order to provide the best service possible to any manner of client. This has resulted in Fleet Support SRL’s carefully structured list of available services. From administrative, operation and network management to expenditure forecasts and collections, Fleet Support SRL allows clients to make a selection from a myriad of options that’ll best suit them.

This, in turn, has led to the overwhelming success of Fleet Support SRL and, most notably, its inspirational CEO. Simone’s can-do mindset towards his business is resolute, and he makes it his aim to present the best service to both clients and employees. He regularly encourages staff members to express themselves in ways that will benefit their work processes, and actively promotes the expression of different and diverse ideas from a collective of hand-picked, knowledgeable individuals.

Each team member within Fleet Support SRL has an impeccable understanding of the industry, to a degree that places each and every one of them in a position to help the company grow. Simone expresses frequently that his staff are necessary for Fleet Support SRL’s facilities to thrive, and he values the hard work and dedication that’s seen from each and every individual working alongside Fleet Support SRL.

So, it comes as no surprise to learn that Simone also treats his clients with a respect that’s astoundingly impressive. Regardless of the size of a company’s fleet, Simone will personally get to learn his clients inside out, all in a bid to provide whatever services they require. So long as the client is fulfilled, and has an easier time managing their fleets through Fleet Support SRL’s brilliant software capabilities, Simone is content and satisfied. Client happiness is what Fleet Support SRL’s primary concern is, and its this ease of access to its systems that makes it truly shine.

With IT tools that have been developed over several years, and its vast wealth of experience in supporting clients, no matter their fleet management needs, Fleet Support SRL has established a reputation for itself that’s bound to stand the test of time. And with such a capable and motivated CEO behind it, it seems as though Fleet Support SRL is here to stay. All the while, CEO Simone will be spearheading every necessary change to provide the most updated and high-quality fleet management software throughout Italy.

This Sporting Life!

Sportswear is an industry that is rapidly growing, with new ways of making clothes transforming this sector into one which is immensely popular across a host of ages. Establishing a business here is by no means easy, but that’s precisely what Adam Franks of Legacy Sportswear has managed. Now named Most Influential Sportswear CEO 2023 – UK, we thought it time to catch up with Adam and uncover some of the secrets of his success.

When looking at the world of clothing, it’s clear that sportswear has taken on new importance over the last few years. Customers are looking for products that make them look good, feel comfortable and offer a practicality that they often struggle to find from other manufacturers. Sportswear also encompasses celebrity culture, serving customers who want to match icons of the sector. The success of Legacy Sportswear comes from serving both of these needs.

Through Legacy, which sells gym and lifestyle wear and The Locker Room, which allows professional sports clubs and fans to purchase team wear, custom-made jerseys, and official merchandise, Adams Franks has been able to build the team at Legacy Sportswear to new heights of success. This thriving family business achieves because it maintains a closeness at all times that ensures constant support throughout the development of any project.

Adam Franks was a professional sportsman, focused on the world of ice hockey. “I’ve had the opportunity to share the locker room with some incredible leaders on and off the ice, including coaches, captains, and players,” he says with a smile. The discipline of working in this environment with a strong team proved to be the perfect training ground for Adam’s future entrepreneurial success. Not content with playing to the best of his ability, he watched those who led and began to unpick what set them apart.

This part of Adam’s career saw him and his team go on to win the league, playoffs, and playoff finals, but key to this success was not just raw talent. “Effective, clear communication was essential,” Adam explains. “I learned early on that being an individual doesn’t win you games and that everyone has a role to play in creating something bigger, and when everyone plays their part, good things happen.”

The founding of Legacy built on this incredible success, with Adam applying what he had seen to the business of sportswear. “My role as CEO at Legacy consists primarily of working with professional clubs to bring them on board, as well as collaborating with Legacy and working very closely with the development team to help improve the fabrics designs we work with,” Adam tells us. “The majority of the team is made up of athletes or ex-athletes.” Such awareness of the sector has given Adam and his team an incredible boost when compared to the competition. Not only do they know the market, but they know how rapidly it can change over time.

Adam has worked hard to ensure that every member of the team is empowered to make decisions and knows that they have the support of their peers. “Installing that team mentality early on in the business was critical to our early growth and success because it laid the groundwork for how Legacy would grow and what type of clients and employees we would attract,” he explains. For Adam, Legacy is more than just a business that creates sportswear. “I knew that when I started Legacy I wanted it to mean something to our community and to the staff that work there because I wanted them to represent, shop, and most importantly be proud of Legacy.”

The idea of community is one which seeps into every part of the business model that Adam has created. The firm was created during the 2012 Olympic Games, hosted in London. “I had a few friends representing Team GB, so we had them try and test our kit and provide honest feedback,” he tells us. “Each time we made the changes they requested until they were happy, and we knew if professional athletes were happy, our kit would be perfect for our store!” Such care to ensure that those who perform at the highest level of the sporting hierarchy has been key to securing success for the Legacy Sportswear team.

While making sportswear that even the best athletes can work with is important, so too is the need to keep an eye on the future. “We have invested heavily in working with sustainable fabrics for the brand,” Adam tells us, “creating collections that include leggings and bras made from bamboo, hoodies made from recycled polyester and organic cotton. We’ve also begun to produce more items in the UK to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Since opening the doors of Legacy Sportswear, Adam has committed to understanding the basics of each part of his business as far as possible. “To be a good CEO, I believe you should spend at least 3 months in every area of the business, including web development, dispatch, clothing development, creative, and photography to help understand how it works, what issues it faces, and how we can solve them faster,” he tells us. This depth of understanding has ensured that Legacy Sportswear can be as reactive as it needs to be in a challenging market.

The market for sportswear is one which you simultaneously have to seek out, and be sought for. Sports fans can find Legacy Sportswear through their e-commerce, with social media driving a great deal of traffic. Team wear, however, is typically sold through word-of-mouth and clubs seeing our brand on professional sports teams on television as well as at most ice rinks when we have pop-ups. Because Adam understands every part of how the business works, he can adapt to suit the individual markets that he is serving.

One of the challenges that Adam has managed to overcome over the last couple of years has been clothing production oversees. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the factory the team used closed. Fortunately, there was plenty of stock in storage but it did lead to a major change for the business. “Legacy Sportswear was re-invented from top to bottom,” Adam explains. “We looked at suppliers, production, and how we could cut costs. I decided we had no choice but to move to on-site production. This proved to be very beneficial for Legacy because it kept costs down and our work almost tripled as the time frame shrank.”

Because so much is now done in house, it’s easy for the team at Legacy Sportswear to match up precisely to what their clients expect. “Legacy’s in-house design team will create the collection using our cuts, the club’s colours, and heritage to create a team wear collection to be proud of,” Adam tells us. “Our team will then create an e-commerce store for the club, which is housed on our team wear section of our Legacy webpage, so customers and fans can order clothing quickly and easily from the club, and we will provide a quick and easy service for their fans using our print on demand methods.” Aiming items directly at a fanbase is what Legacy Sportswear excels at, primarily because each member of the team comes from a sporting background themselves.

Looking ahead, Adam plans to take significant steps to become a one-stop shop for all of the team’s needs, including those of its players, coaches, and fans. “The most exciting part will be phase three of this plan,” Adam says,  “where kit designer teams will be able to login and design their own kits online, with colours, and personalise them with numbers and names.” Until then, he and the Legacy Sportswear team will continue to develop new products such as the recently released high-quality fabric for ice hockey jerseys and socks, which is now in production. The team have also created a new website for the brand and an easier user experience journey so that ordering for clubs, teams, and the brand is super speedy and effective.

Growth is no easy achievement, but Adam has proven determined to make it a reality. We celebrate his tremendous success and look forward to what Legacy Sportswear manages to achieve in the weeks and months yet to come.

In the meantime, the company will be bringing excitement to Camberley town centre from Monday 15th May after winning the first four-month spot at The Pop-Up Club located on 27 Obelisk Way.

“We’re excited to bring our brand values to life with the launch of our opportunity in The Pop-Up Club,” Adam comments. “We believe that our values of quality, sustainability, and customer service are what sets us apart from our competitors. We’re looking forward to showcasing our products and expertise to the people of Camberley.”

Media Moguls Secure Success

The media and advertising ecosystem is one which depends on data to thrive, and that information is precisely what the team at Kantar IBOPE Media. Led by Antonio Wanderley, the business has become a major part of how leading businesses work. Now named Most Influential CEO 2023 – LATAM (Marketing Data & Analytics) in the Most Influential CEO Awards 2023, we take a closer look at precisely how he has brought about such enviable success.

The media industry is one which is constantly changing, and staying ahead relies on being able to predict precisely what the market demands as early on as possible. The team at Kantar IBOPE Media, under the leadership of Antonio Wanderley, have managed to secure a prominent position thanks to a digital transformation in 2014. As CMO, Antonio was able to reinvigorate Kantar IBOPE Media for a whole new generation leading a merger with the leading global company (Kantar Media) to form Kantar IBOPE Media.

Kantar IBOPE Media focuses on the needs of media producers as well as sellers and buyers of advertising. If a company has a touchpoint with media and advertising, they will want the impressive services of Antonio and his team. The team’s data is a vital part of informing all advertising trading transactions the length and breadth of Latin America.

Antonio’s style of leadership has seen him establish a remit that covers not only Latin America, but Spain, Asia and Africa too. Having such reach has meant that his leadership methods have been forced to change when compared to the smaller responsibilities he once held. “I have more and more shifted into more horizontal structures,” he tells us. “We focused on creating and empowering leadership teams, rather than individual leaders. These teams are held accountable for delivering against a small number of high-impact OKRs.” This approach to the sector has worked well indeed creating a business model which is always moving forward but always testing itself to ensure the best path possible.

Key to this success, therefore, is finding the right talent to achieve exceptional results and managing their performances successfully. “To assure focus and consistency, we create management principles that guide our team’s decision-making and behavior. These principles are reviewed and updated annually during our planning process.,” he explains. “these include being impatient with internally focused decisions, putting clients above politics, and holding everyone accountable for delivering to clients, not just their own part of the process..” That everyone is empowered to deliver with such care and attention is why Antonio and his team have been able to secure such tremendous success so far.

Needless to say, however, that the growth of the media landscape has forced Antonio to adjust swiftly to meet changing demands.“It is always very hard to change while winning,” Antonio says wryly, “Developing and solidifying a culture of proactively disrupting ourselves is a major task. This means being willing to challenge the status quo and make changes ahead of the curve.” Needless to say that Antonio and his team have managed to establish their attitude as disrupters at precisely the right time.

Change is hard, but if companies do not change then they will become irrelevant in the rapidly changing world in which we live. “I believe many companies are talking about digital transformation,” he says, “but few companies take any serious steps towards it, and only a handful of those have been successful at it!” In a world where forms of broadcasting have been usurped by streaming, professionally produced content by user generated content and linear mass advertising by targeting, change is vital.

None of this even considers one of the biggest forces for change in the 21st Century, namely the blockchain and AI. The instability of the world today is why the team focuses so much on being experts at adaptation. It means that Kantar IBOPE Media will thrive beyond the limits of what media companies currently demand. “We managed to change,” says Antonio, “and we were able to take an approach which is scalable and could benefit our clients too.”

Despite all this talk of change, however, it’s clear that Antonio does, in fact, value those aspects which will never waver despite the state of the markets. This include, frankly, the incredible team which he has managed to build around him and which has been able to secure such amazing success for Kantar IBOPE Media. “It’s seems counter intuitive but I have focused on what’s constant and not what’s changing,” he says. “I feel most people do the opposite.” In an era where automation is playing a bigger and bigger role, his aim has been to humanise his approach to leadership and interpersonal connections in order to support clients.

One of the key aspects where Antonio has been able to provide incredible support has been through the development and empowerment of a diverse talent base that can bring vital new perspectives to the table.  Kantar IBOPE Media is not just a large media empire that stagnates, but one which depends on a unique set of skills and creativity that will unlock growth for many years to come.

Looking ahead, it’s clear that  Kantar IBOPE Media has a great future ahead. The team have been able to take Brazil to the global forefront of media measurement. “It’s arguably the most developed market globally in terms on media currency data,” Antonio tells us. “In the immediate future, our focus is to scale this solution to the next LATAM markets such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru as well as to other continents. Spain and Vietnam should be the next markets that Kantar IBOPE Media aims to penetrate.

We can see that Antonio is an immensely responsible leader, pushing his business to adapt constantly while also supporting his team to thrive in a traditional manner. People come first at all times at Kantar IBOPE Media, and that’s why the team has been able to secure such tremendous growth over the years.

Consulting for Grown Ups

Change and Transformation affects every organisation. All change is ‘Business Change,’ irrespective of whether it’s enabled by technology, the people side of change, or regulatory requirement. However, this does not mean every organisation keeps the required resource and capability in-house to deliver their change and transformation successfully.

Project One is a leading, independent, business transformation consultancy, led by CEO James O’Sullivan, who this month has been named the ‘Most Influential Business Transformation CEO of the Year 2023 – London’. Celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2023, Project One is a challenger brand to the traditional large-scale global consultancies, with an operating model that focuses only on leading change and transformation delivery.

In this feature, we learn more about the consulting industry and how organisations benefit from partnering with boutique consultancies like Project One to make real change happen and make a real difference to their businesses and their customers.

Consulting is an industry that follows the oscillations of the global macro-economic conditions. In 2018 and 2019, the industry was impacted by the non-committal nature of the Brexit negotiations, as organisations slowed their change agenda until they had clarity around whether the UK were leaving the EU trading block. In 2020 and 2021, COVID-19 impacted the industry as some organisations closed their doors, whilst others ran slower than planned with their change agenda as they negotiated the pandemic.

The impact to consultancies of such events is both positive and negative, simply by the nature of what they do for a living and the service they provide their customers, in both good times and bad. Established in 1998, Project One has 25 years of experience in observing the continuous oscillations that come with the industry. There have been significant technology developments in the last two decades, and the role of Project One is to support their customers in remaining relevant and competitive.

Chances are, if you’re a business of any significant size, you’ve encountered the need to change or transform. Every industry is constantly changing, adapting, and adopting to new developments in products, services and underlying technology solutions. The need to transform your business to suit these emerging demands can become complex and requires a clear shared vision.

Aligning all aspects of your business towards much-needed change can feel challenging. Project One looks to address this issue by making what appears complex, more simple. Large-scale, global organisations such as AstraZeneca, BAE Systems, IAG, Rolls-Royce, Unilever and VMO2, to name a few, trust Project One to help them change and transform their business.

Dedicated to making change and transformation delivery as simple as possible for their customers, Project One approaches change from the Boardroom down, building long-term, trusted relationships with their C-Suite customers. A key differentiator for Project One is that every consultant has significant change leadership experience to work at this senior level. The benefit to their customers is that they can draw on the combined experience of what is likely the largest team of change leaders in the UK, bringing this added value to every conversation.

James commented, “No person is an island, and no consultancy can be a success based on the critical few. The beating heart of Project One is our people, they are our business asset, and our continued success and growth is based upon the ‘power of the team.’ Whilst we all have our own individual roles to play, accountabilities and responsibilities to deliver upon and live up to, the collective power that we bring to bear for our customers through our collaboration is tantamount to our success and that of our customers.”

One aspect that makes Project One stand out in a competitive market is their experienced CEO, James. After working in the business change industry for nearly 30 years, he has an unwavering passion for finding a solution to complex business problems and is most at home when sat with his customers, in front of a whiteboard with a pen in his hand.

James continues to build and grow the reputation of this award-winning business, earned over the past 25 years. Taking and blending an innovative approach, alongside respecting the heritage, ensures that his team remains happy, productive and celebrate successes along the way.

Different to larger consultancies, this is consulting for grown-ups. His consulting team has no traditional performance management, balance scorecards or sales targets, just a pure focus on their customers’ change delivery agenda. This enables an astounding rate of productivity that’ll serve his customers well during their business change and transformation.

One long standing customer, Global CIO, said, “Having a small team from Project One in our business creates a community of excellence. They’re all a certain standard of capability, drawing on their experience to join the dots. This is why I repeatedly choose Project One.”

Above all else, Project One sticks to their values and has done since 1998, making the complex simple is what Project One truly excels at to stand out amongst the rest. Transforming your business doesn’t need to be complicated or intimidating, and Project One will be there to support you.

Thanks to their incredible CEO, Project One has become something truly special. With James O’Sullivan’s fantastic leadership skills and dedication to his customer’s satisfaction, Project One is a brilliant company to work alongside. No matter your challenge, or your change and transformation agenda, no transformation partner will be better for you than Project One. After all, with an award-winning CEO at the helm, there isn’t much that Project One can’t do.
