E146 - Greg Jackson, CEO of Octopus Energy Group.
This the second episode in our CEO Series, in which we will be deep diving into what it takes to be a CEO.
Greg Jackson is the founder and CEO of Octopus Energy Group, which currently has over 3.1 million UK customers. Octopus are on a mission to bring cheaper, greener power to all. In this episode Greg shares not only what it means to be a successful leader and team player, but how to live a more authentic life altogether. During this episode Greg shares a key life lesson: “Be more like your Gran”. Older people are always happier and fulfilled as they are confident in themselves whilst being able to admit their own flaws, he states this is something we should all aspire to be.
Greg shares how integral creating a world where we are all equal is and why we should seek to get rid of any power dynamics. He discusses with Jake and Damian how crucial respect, compromise and authenticity are within his personal and professional life.
