Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an individual, or an organisation, this series is packed with plenty of tips and tricks that you can apply to your own thinking – to disrupt the way you work and the world around you.

Behaviour change with Matt Wallaert (Microsoft/Get Raised)  

Holly Ransom introduces Matt Wallaert, director of Microsoft Startup Partners, who explains the psychology behind behaviour change – and how you can identify factors that are holding you back. Matt is also a prominent campaigner for gender equality and through Get Raised has helped women across the world to earn pay rises collectively worth over 2.3 billion dollars.

Purpose with Richard Branson, Emma Sinclair, The LADbible and Blockchain  

Host Holly Ransom chairs a discussion with Richard Branson and three influential entrepreneurs, asking the question, 'Is a disruptor born, or are they made?’ They are joined by Emma Sinclair, the co-founder of Enterprise Jungle and the youngest ever person to float a company on the London stock exchange. ‘Content King’ Solly Solomou from The LADbible brings his fresh take from the world of media, and fintech disruptor Peter Smith draws on his experience as founder of Blockchain – the world’s most popular Bitcoin wallet. The panel passionately discuss their motives to disrupt and whilst they don’t always agree, they are decidedly all driven by an deep sense of purpose.
