Today’s podcast guest has an extremely interesting background working across the political, corporate and start-up spaces. Mark Gustowski was formerly the Chief Executive Officer of QUT Creative Enterprise Australia. I asked Mark about measure of success he found to be critical and he was very focused on the fit of employees to the business environment in which they work. He noted that leader success for him is developing functional and cohesive teams. I hope you enjoy the podcast and as always much more content on the way.
