Jonathan MacDonald at TNW - update

Met Jonathan several years ago at Forum Oxford. He's remarkably frank in this interview that being an entrepreneur has a lot of ups and downs...especially in the mobile space. But Jonathan is a real thought leader and practitioner. H'e right that if your team doesn't believe in the direction they're going, so much time and effort are lost through a lack of engagement. Which is why transparent communications are so important, especially in international teams where the same word may have different meanings and interpretations.

Listen to what Jonathan says - and do what he tells you needs to get done. The original YouTube still was unfortunate. Looks like the interviewer punched him! But that has now been corrected.

Really appreciate you posting this. The YouTube still has been amended so there's less of a 'punched' look. Anyway you're kind words are appreciated Mr Marks.
