Dr Simon Hayward from Cirrus on Jazz FM

by | Oct 22, 2016 | News

Cirrus CEO Dr Simon Hayward was a special guest on Jazz FM’s Jazz Shapers programme on Saturday 22 October.

The programme’s regular ‘Business Shapers’ slot features entrepreneurial leaders who have defied convention and gone on to achieve great success.

Simon was interviewed by presenter Elliot Moss, who is also director of business development at leading law firm Mishcon de Reya. The two are pictured together, above, with Elliot on the left.

Simon talked about his career in business leadership and consultancy and how he still gets a great ‘buzz’ from working in partnership with clients and helping to create positive change. He explained that in setting up Cirrus he went out of his way to recruit talented people and to encourage collaboration.

“We have three core values at Cirrus: Connected, Courageous and Creative. These are at the centre of how we operate. They influence how we behave, how we respect each other, how we talk to each other.”

He is a firm believer in the power of purpose: “I think increasingly, especially with millennials and the changes in the demographics of the workplace, a sense of purpose is absolutely critical to why we come to work in the morning.”

He also talked about what led him to write his acclaimed business book, Connected Leadership: How to Build a More Agile, Customer-Driven Business, which was published by FT Publishing in 2015 and has been shortlisted for CMI Business Book of the Year.

The interview is full of other interesting insights. We recommend a listen.
