Nick Telson

A serial angel investor and previously co-founded Design My Night, a nightlife discovery website, in 2010. Nick came from a background in marketing with L'Oreal launching two brands in the UK before going into Design My Night, which went on to have 8 million views a month and 250 million worth of transactional revenue with two groundbreaking B2B hospitality systems.

Design My Night was later acquired by the access group. And Nick now has founded the Horseplay Ventures group, which is an angel investing arm and startup studio kind of giving back from what helped him start his own business.

Horseplay invest in 25 companies to date across the UK and the US. And now Nick's also started the podcast called Pitch Deck, which has already got into the top five global UK business podcasts, which is pretty impressive for the fact that it literally started like six months ago now.

509: Transitioning to Remote Leadership, with Tammy Bjelland
Tammy Bjelland: Workplaceless Tammy Bjelland is the Founder and CEO of Workplaceless, a training company that teaches remote workers, leaders, and companies how to work, lead, grow, and thrive in distributed environments. Workplaceless is a fully distributed company supporting enterprise, remote, and government clients such as Toyota, GitLab, and the US Department of Commerce. In this conversation, Tammy and I discuss how leaders can establish a mindset that helps them lead remote teams more successfully. We discuss how to take on a placeless mindset, explore the importance of shifting from how to why, and the best starting points for a communication charter. Key Points Five key principles of a Placeless mindset: Embrace location independence over physical presence. Empower autonomous work with flexible schedules. Impact productivity with asynchronous communication and collaboration. Be open and transparent. Trust your colleague and employees. Fear of losing control tends to keep organizations from being able to make useful shifts in mindset. Leaders and organizations that move beyond the “how” of remote work and focus first on the “why” will have more sustainable success. Beware of simply trying to replicate what happened in the office. The whole point of remote work is that it is not like the office. Establish a communication charter. This makes it clear what tools are best — and also how to intervene when things don’t work as anticipated.
