Jonathan Straight

In this episode I talk to Dr Jonathan Straight. From ambitious musician to a worldwide reputation in the recycling world (selling his company, Straight PLC, in 2014 for £10.7m) his story is both fascinating and gripping. A moustachioed entrepreneur and philanthropist, plural non-exec director, writer and TV presenter, motivational speaker, street photographer, 'spex' maniac, and Vegan, his story so far is anything but dull!.We talk about how he made the front page of the Sun in the 1980s when he changed his name from Gay to Straight, his journey as an entrepreneur, and how his ability to spot opportunities has contributed to his success and his reputation.
