ScaleUp Group Chair John O’Connell was recently   interviewed for Archives of IT which aims to inspire and inform future leaders of the UK IT industry through insights of successful leaders.

John was asked his proudest achievements …

 ”Historically  Staffware has to be number one-going from zero (or even minus!)  to no.1 in the world in our field and then being bought for $230 million after hitting a low point valuation of $12 million, post dot.com crash – and giving a great return to all those who had invested in it and remained loyal throughout.  John adds that while Staffware was his proudest moment it was a long time ago, saying: “I don’t really want to rest on my laurels on that one.
Right up to date, I’m proud now that Scale-Up Group is up and running and that we are making a big difference to many entrepreneurs.”
