Gavin Shinfield is the co-founder and CSO of Kyan, and we’ll be taking a closer look under the hood and drawing out the important lessons from his experiences.

  • From the early days and surviving the credit crunch…
  • …to realising there was a lot more work to do despite hitting the magic £1m mark…
