1. The Conversation with Mark Brown

The Conversation

On today’s episode we sit down for a conversation with Mark Brown, who was recently in Fredericton preaching at CCC’s annual youth weekend. Mark has served in a myriad of ministry roles over the years in South Dakota, including Lead Pastor, Youth President, Sunday School Director, and in this current season he serves South Dakota as their District Superintendent and also a circuit rider preacher and church planter: something he shares a bit about today. Mark is husband to Jordan, father to Noah, Grace and Eden. He is a phenomenal preacher of the gospel, and just being around him challenges you to be better. During the conversation we talked about many different things, including having a “Kingdom over Culture” mindset, how the church is to respond to past injustices, having a unified ministry approach in marriage, and much more! This podcast is produced by Capital Community Church in Fredericton, NB. If you’re in the area, we would love to have you for one of our weekly services!

Student Debt Liberation w/ Mark Brown of The Student Freedom Initiative

While Black

Education and specifically higher education (while not the only way) has a direct link to closing the wealth gap. This means the opportunity to advance our education at every level is critical and something the entirety of Black America should be focused on. Billionaire Robert Smith had the issue of access and funding for higher education squarely in his sights that day on Morehouse campus when he agreed to shoulder the student loan debt of 400+ graduates that day, but more importantly the idea for the Student Freedom Initiative was born.What is the Student Freedom Initiative you may ask..... what I'll tell you is that it is an answer to the problem of how can I, he, she, and we afford college... it is a bridge over the troubled waters of financial inequity and it is the topic of todays episode. Mark Brown, executive director of The Student Freedom Initiative, joins us to talk the the need, the problem, and the solutions. His organization is equipped to support us while it teaches us how to pay forward the beautiful gift of a college education.To learn more about The Student Freedom Initiative please visit their WEBSITE.Don't forget to get social with While Black IG: WHILE_BLACK; TWITTER @whileblackpc; FB @whileblackpodcast or email: whileblackpodcast@gmail.comRecorded @ drsatl.com Theme song Produced by Wahid Gomes and licensed through Verde Music Group Learn more about your ad choices.

Secrets to Surviving Four Financial Crises and Growing Revenue to £56 Million, with Mark Brown, Ep #112

The Resilient Recruiter

Imagine starting your own recruitment business with zero experience in recruitment and only 10 days later the world comes to a standstill with 9/11. This is how the story of Mark Brown, co-founder and director of Worldwide Recruitment Solutions (WRS) started. However, this wasn’t the last obstacle in his way. Their niche field was financial institutions with a specific focus on the mortgage market when the 2008 financial collapse took place. From there they transitioned their business into serving the oil and gas industry and 2014 came along, seeing the oil industry plummeting.  In this podcast, Mark expands on how they still managed to grow WRS to revenue of £56 million and EBITA of £1.7M with 4 international offices (UK, Singapore, Iraq & Uganda), becoming the 3rd fastest growing recruitment company in the UK.  Episode Outline and Highlights: [1:24] The journey from call centre manager to founding a recruitment business  [4:51] 10 days after launching 9/11 rocked the world [6:15] The urgently search for a new niche and stumbling into the world of finance [9:50] A career of surviving and thriving the worst of downtimes [13:55] Expanding internationally [15:22] Sep 2008 - started World Recruitment Solutions (WRS) [16:27] The motto of “Cash is King” helped them weather the storms  [20:42] The simple model that proved effective in following their vision [25:10] 2011 WRS entered the oil and gas industry, the cash cow they needed [27:50] How to grow your business from 5 - 30 people in 3 years [29:50] The secrets to enjoying a 90% staff retention [37:48] And then the oil industry plummeted - surviving another crisis [46:43] Solving infrastructure challenges with the right tech stack and automation [54:00] Winning the Sunday Times Award for Best Small Company to Work For [55:48] Why creating a respectful environment is so important at WRS [59:35] Where is WRS heading the future? Cash Is King “You talk about systems but there weren’t any systems. The reality was that this was a decision that I’d taken on the back of good advice. I think the advice I was given besides that cash is king is to make sure you’ve always got a minimum of 6 and ideally 9 months worth of working capital, business as usual working capital so that you can keep the lights on,” Mark explains how they managed to survive and thrive through 4 major global financial crises.   How to Scale Your Business to 30 People In a matter of three years, WRS grew from 5 to 30 people. On top of that, they also have an employee retention rate of 90%. Mark compared their system to that of Jack and the Beanstalk where they had four department heads and added new team members underneath each one.  The following factors all influenced their success in hiring the right people to fall underneath these heads: An organizational structure that allowed them to bring in individuals to work underneath a certain line manager They employed trainees  They looked for a certain DNA in these individuals WRS had an excellent training platform By appointing a learning and development manager Employing outside experts to fill knowledge gaps However, what added more value to the business was the high retention rate that sometimes was above 90%. As WRS always gave their staff the perfect runway to grow within, staff would very seldom leave the business. Mark also pointed out that they created a clear path for everyone joining the firm and they offered a space without any glass ceilings and where the opinion of employees was respected. Why Did WRS Win The Sunday Times Best Small Company to Work for Award? Mark states that even though the company has grown tremendously since its early days, they’ve maintained the same kind of culture. The management team, the L&D team and the culture of the business never changed. “I refer back to respect, fair environment, an environment where people feel they belong, feel they have a voice, feel they have an input, they understand the purpose of the company and the direction of travel and that is through constant communication,” Mark shares why he believes they won the award for being the best small company to work for.  Our Sponsors This podcast is proudly sponsored by i-intro®.  i-intro® is an end-to-end retained recruitment platform.
