#156 Roland Horne, Founder and CEO at WatchHouse, on the Introspective Leader

Roland Horne’s approach to the pursuit of mastery is fascinating. He entered hospitality because he was a disgruntled customer. Fast forward to today, he is the founder and CEO of the Central London specialty coffee chain WatchHouse. From day one it has been the company’s vision to grow and offer great coffee to great communities. 

This was a truly remarkable conversation where we find out how businesses should give more than they take. If you want to learn more about growth, then this one’s for you. We discuss how Roland is trying to become a better CEO each day, how WatchHouse has built a loyal customer base – and how they are bringing specialty coffee through their app.
