Ran Neu-Ner - Co-Founder and Co-CEO, The Creative Counsel

There are few organisations that are able to function with two CEOs, but The Creative Counsel seems to have been able to get it right: Ran Neu-Ner is one half of the dynamic duo that heads up this organisation, and he shares openly and candidly with us some of the lessons he has learned as he sometimes walked, sometimes sprinted, and sometimes crawled along on his TCC journey...and it's not even close to being over yet.

There are some very important lessons in this conversation that must not be missed.

Gil Oved - Dragons Den SA Dragon, and Co-Founder & Co-CEO, The Creative Counsel

Gil Oved is a self made millionaire. He and his business partner started a business in 2001 with next to nothing, that today posts a turnover in excess of R600 million a year. The reasons for their success include Gil's often hard and direct demeanor seen on TV screens during episodes of Dragons Den SA, but he has another visionary, big dreamer, go get it, optimistic side that comes out during our interview with him...

In the words of our post production team: "He is brilliant!"
