Back in June, the interview tables turned for our MD, Founder and 40 Minute Mentor podcast host, James Mitra, as he had the great pleasure of appearing on 40 Minute Mentor and former Chief Business Officer of Google X, Mo Gawdat‘s Slo Mo Podcast.

Slo Mo is a series of extraordinary conversations hosted by Mo Gawdat, exploring the profound questions and obstacles we all face in the pursuit of finding the true purpose in our lives. We loved having Mo on the 40 Minute Mentor podcast, so it was a great honour to be invited on to his podcast.

In their conversation, James and Mo cover so much ground from professional and personal achievements, including:

  • The story behind JBM and how recruitment can go far beyond “placing bums on seats”
  • How we’ve navigated the global pandemic and managed to give back to our amazing community throughout lockdown
  • And how some of James’ early experiences have fuelled his passion for diversity and social mobility.
