Q&A – Stuart Ross, High Growth

Stuart Ross

Coaching solutions business High Growth is sponsoring the Fastest in Tech & Creative category at the EMBL Fastest 40 Awards 2017. We caught up with founder and CEO Stuart Ross to get the lowdown.

What does High Growth do?

We guarantee double digit growth in any organisation! Through our coaching and training solutions we take away the pain of “learning as you grow” whilst providing cutting edge tools and strategies to enable companies to grow efficiently and rapidly.

What are your own growth plans?

We will continue to expand through our offline and online coaching and training solutions globally. With offices in Nottingham and San Diego we will continue to develop these markets whilst also setting up a joint venture in Dubai. We are always seeking to take on more coaches, providing they have a background of success in high growth organisations and the relevant coaching qualifications.

What motivates you to do what you do?

A desire to realise the potential of both organisations and leaders.

Your latest book, Growth Hacks: 10 Groundbreaking Strategies to Scale Your Business Rapidly has been top of the Amazon hotlist. Can you tell us about it?  

In this ebook, I share ten growth hacks which, if implemented consistently, allow companies to experience massive growth easily. These ten strategies have resulted from my experience in working with over 2000 high growth companies across the world, and give the largest return for a business, relative to the time investment required to implement them. They are what I call, result enablers. If companies and leaders work on these strategies, they can take an established business to the next level rapidly.

What appeals to you about the Fastest 40 Awards?

These are the the companies in the region that deliver employment and economic growth. They also set a standard other companies should aspire to. These companies and leaders need to be recognised for what they are achieving.

What advice would you give to up-and-coming businesspeople?

Build a team of mentors, advisors and peers around you – who can both inspire you, hold you to account and share their wisdom so you avoid the mistakes they made!
