This week I’m joined by Ross Fraser, owner of Connecting Experts.

He started working in recruitment at 18 at ChapmanBlack, before deciding to set up Connecting Experts in 2016. 

This was an interesting episode as we spoke more than just recruitment and business development.

A lot of Ross’ mantras come from developing a positive relationship with your mental health, and ensuring that you have the right things in place to grow a successful agency.
