Kamal Ahmed and Rohan Silva lift the lid on the realities of starting your own business.
Kamal and Rohan speak to founder and CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings.
Reed discloses the mistakes made in his first business and how he overcame them. They talk about what it took for Netflix to take on a company 100 times their size - and win. Plus why creative industries need to break away from work practices tailored to the industrial era and what that means for Netflix employees: no bonuses, no holiday limits and why being 'on the clock' doesn't apply.
Presenters: Kamal Ahmed and Rohan Silva
Producer: Georgia Catt
