WITH BIG-TICKET CLIENTS LIKE GOOGLE AND BRI­TISH GRO­CERY CHAIN CO-OP ON HIS ROS­TER, THIS FOUNDER LOSES SLEEP OVER THE NEED TO ACT QUICKLY, WHICH ISN’T AL­WAYS EASY.

“If some­thing is dis­rupt­ing a client’s busi­ness sec­tor, we want to help them by mov­ing quickly, test­ing and de­vel­op­ing a new counter propo­si­tion,” says Robin, who heads up cre­ative com­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany For­ever Beta.

“But, most of the busi­nesses we work with are un­able to shift quickly, both from a busi­ness and cul­tural perspective. I lay awake at night work­ing out the best way to take them on a jour­ney where they feel com­fort­able to ex­per­i­ment.”

Safe­guard­ing his own com­pany cul­ture also makes his mind whir at mid­night.

“En­sur­ing that our cul­ture pro­motes the best au­ton­omy, ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and em­pow­er­ment is a con­stant bat­tle against sleep at night,” he says.

He finds that mind­ful­ness tech­niques help him drift off. “When I’m at home, I try to put away things that will pull my mind away from home. I ba­si­cally cre­ate thresh­olds for my­self where I stop do­ing one thing – work­ing – and start do­ing an­other – rest.”
