For this installment of the Stew & Cocoa podcast, host Toni Camisotti is joined by Rupert Shaw, Sales & Pre Construction Director at Epiphany.
A company we like to call “London’s best-kept secret”, Epiphany has been creating and transforming workplaces (including our very own offices) throughout London and the South East since 2008.
Throughout the episode, we cover a range of different topics, from the rise in pricing of labour and materials, the COVID-related challenges we've all faced in the last six months, and Epiphany’s landmark growth.
Rupert discusses the challenges the business has faced, and some interesting ways they've collectively approached and tackled them. He tells us something that started as simply as a numbers man and a construction guy, has ended up being an incredibly successful business predicted at the value of £20,000,000 as of next year.
Epiphany has found success through collaboration, partnership, and non-confrontation. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this one.
ABOUT THE PODCAST
A lot’s changed in Construction recently. The IR35 deadline’s been and gone. The whole world's emerging out of lockdown all at once. Demand is booming, materials prices are rising exponentially and wage inflation is on the horizon. Whilst the social world returns to something resembling normal, are we walking back into a totally different workplace to the one we left?
As we enter our third season of the Stew & Cocoa podcast, we've got a lot to look forward to.
The show features lively conversations with a hand-picked roster of construction industry leaders. We'll explore how their roles have changed over the last year, the challenges they've faced, the creative solutions they've had to employ to overcome them and how the new working environment will continue to evolve.
- How have they dealt with the pandemic?
- What challenges have they faced and innovations offered to meet them over the past year?
- How has the combination of the demand for post lockdown flexible working and new IR35 legislation influenced their talent attraction strategy?
- What can we do to make work better than it was before?
We know now that good candidates are already in short supply. Our aim is to help the market back on its feet as quickly as possible, at the same time showcasing businesses leading the way in their return to work strategy, boosting their employer branding credentials in the process.
Our goal is to inspire our audience with real stories of growth, adversity, success and failure. We aim to be entertaining, informative and motivating in equal measure.
