Leadership Lessons From Google And Just Eat with Adrian Blair

Today’s inspiring guest and your mentor for the next 40 minutes is Adrian Blair, CEO of the digital bookkeeping platform Receipt Bank.

Receipt Bank helps make accounting easier for over 400,000 small businesses around the world and recently raised $75 million Series C funding for the next chapter in their growth journey.

Before joining Receipt Bank, Adrian led the development of the eCommerce partnership strategy at Google and helped grow Just Eat from a small scale start up to the FTSE 100 company we now know it as now.

In today’s episode, we talk about the lessons Adrian has learned on his amazing career journey so far, including:

– The leadership lessons from working alongside Google Co-Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin and how they still influence his approach to this day.

– The highs and lows from his journey with Just Eat and how this experience has shaped how he’s steering Receipt Bank on their rapid growth journey.

– And, what to think about when planning your career and why you should be considering more than just money and experience when planning your next move.

It was fascinating to learn more about Adrian’s early days at Google, the motivations behind his big career moves since, and what the future holds for Receipt Bank.

If you’re thinking about making your next career move or want to know what it’s really like on the inside of an incredible growth journey like Just Eat, you’ll definitely want to listen to Adrian’s invaluable advice in this episode.
