This week, James is joined by Mark Harmon, who originally studied pharmacology before becoming a buyer for M&S - he was there for 7 years travelling the world. He then worked for Arcadia Group, which includes the likes of Miss Selfridge and TopShop, opening up flagship shops in places like Rio, and because loves sport, he moved to speedo to set up Speedo Beach, which was a business within a business that grew to about $20M in 3 years - he had a team in Australia and some other incredible beach locations around the world, before getting headhunted by Nike to run their $100M sports apparel business globally and worked with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Mark then had a very moving personal experience  when his son born unwell and his priorities in life change pretty much overnight so he went on to become the oldest medical student through Kings College Medical School, graduated as a doctor and went on this great journey to combine his business and medical acumen to now work for eConsult - a healthtech company that streamlines primary and urgent care through an online consultation platform.
