So glad I found this podcast
I discovered this podcast because of my working using the Business Model Canvas by Alex Osterwalder. Once I heard this episode with Alex, I started listening to the others and enjoyed each one. I like Mark's ability to dig for truly actionable advice that listeners can use right away. I also really appreciate the optimism of the subject matter and the sense of empowerment that Mark and his guests give to listeners, especially those who are trying to generate change in large organizations as intrapreneurs. Looking forward to hearing more!
