The Power of Networks with Peter Goodman

An effective network is essential to the efficient and profitable running of any organization. Not only this, they have completely transformed communication and business across the globe.

My guest Peter Goodman is co-founder and CEO of Aventus a cloud based Platform that enables MGAs, brokers and insurers to create a seam-less buying experience for their insurance products. Peter started his journey with a law degree and the world at his feet. Over-trading in his first business led to debt yet Peter went on to set up several other companies, including Brighter Option, a social advertising platform. The sale of Brighter Option to Buddy Media in 2012 and then subsequently Salesforce for around $730m gave Peter a depth of knowledge in growing a company to success. Today, Peter has multiple business interests through his own vehicle Grow Bag Capital, and is also a very passionate golfer.

Join us as we discuss what we all good business people should know about networks.
