The Outset Podcast Ep1: The First Ten Years in Business
The Outset Podcast is hosted by Outset Cornwall, providing support and inspiration to help you to start, run and grow your small business.
Tony Sampson, Naked Solar
Tony Sampson is the founder and Managing Director of Newquay-based Naked Solar, and recently celebrated 10 years in business.
Tony was one of the first people to be part of the Outset Cornwall in programme in 2009; award-winning fully-funded support and training for people wanting to start their own business or go self-employed.
He now runs a hugely successful solar installation company, employing 28 people and has won a page load of awards including The UK’s Best Solar Panel Installer.
Tony chats to our host Rich Gunton, about still feeling like a start-up ten years into his business, employing the right people and why team building by a pool in Portugal is better than building a raft.
