Bigger Than The Superbowl with Ricky Chanana, Twitch


This episode, we're joined by Ricky Chanana, Head of Sales at Twitch. In his 16 years working in advertising and media, Ricky has done his time both agency and publisher side, including heading up investment at Maxus, leading Unruly in AUNZ, and more recently, joining Twitch as Head of Sales.  We talk through the vital role of community in a successful network, gaming becoming pop culture, and how to speak to cord cutters in the inevitable shift away from TV.

S4E4: Ricky Chanana, MD of Unruly on building teams of pandas

The Momentum Life Project

In this episode Kerry D chats to Ricky Chanana, Managing Director of AUNZ Unruly, the global ad-tech agency which brings unique EQ testing to targeted ad campaigns and was bought by News Corp for 215 million pounds! Ricky talks about how the biggest success in his organisation is tracking projects not humans. He is on a mission to disrupt traditional HR practices and empower his people through a culture that is curated and cultivated by each and every member of the team. From flexible core hours to flash Fridays and building a whole collective of Pandas (which by the way includes the option to go and work from any Unruly office in the world for up to 4 weeks without taking any annual leave) - he’s seeing greater productivity, a happier and healthier workforce and positive bottom line results! Ricky also has an incredible approach to ‘relaxing’ - by not relaxing! For him, he’s tried slowing down, he’s tried switching off but actually what gives him the most clarity, laser-focus and ‘reset’ is by training 5-6 times per week. This is a great high-energy episode which culminates in Ricky’s ‘triple A’ secret sauce recipe to high performance.
