Podcast #41: Ben Porter – Ask Me Anything

Thanks to everyone who has watched and listened to the podcast this year, it’s been lovely to see how many people have engaged with it and I really appreciate the feedback that people have sent in!

I’m taking a short break through January and February to work on another project, but before I do I’ve got two episodes to share in which I gave previous podcast guests the opportunity to ask me questions.

This is the first, in which I answer questions by Hannah Davies, James Buck, Jeff Clark, Heather Niven, Nicole Vogwill, Lauren Roberts, and Luke Porter.

3 useful books I would recommend in answer to James’ question are:
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
Grit by Angela Duckworth
Benjamin Franklin by Walter Isaacson

Podcast #39: Richard O’Hare

Richard O’Hare is one of the founders of Orillo Films, and works within the company as a cinematographer, drone pilot, producer and director.

As a production company Orillo work all over the world with clients such as Dulux, Jack Wills, and Toyota, but they’re also known for their other creative endeavours in events and merchandise, including their outdoor cinemas, clothing, and their Orillo branded Vodka.

In this episode we discuss the motivation behind taking on these extra creative challenges which aren’t necessarily part of your core business, we get into the ethics and morality of creating branded marketing content, as well as the murky waters of taking on free work, and Richard offers his advice on growing your company, through hiring for passion to build a strong and resilient team.
