New podcasts revealing ‘desire to collaborate’ among STC companies

Silverstone Technology Cluster

11th December 2018


The STC website is now home to a library of lively podcasts dedicated to interviews with business leaders from within the cluster. 

Behind them is Chris Broome, owner and chartered financial planner of Silverstone-based lifestyle/financial planning firm, Longhurst, which niches in tech and high-growth. It is also an STC member.

And Chris confessed: “I’m also a gaming geek and a tech geek and love producing content marketing.”

He added: “I listen to lots of business and entrepreneurial podcasts so when we launched Longhurst we knew there was a niche opportunity to launch a podcast where I get to interview business owners and peers that I respect – it was too good to miss.

“The interviews really take the format of conversations I might have with clients: who are you, your life, your business, what you get away to outside of work etc.”

Indeed the podcasts help to show another side to the STC’s business leaders.

Chris continued: “I ask each of them for their most embarrassing memory whether in business or not. Everyone’s been a good sport and shared some funny stories from spraying a packet of Twix in a court session to getting shoved in the mud on sports day in a wheelbarrow moment!

“We have received lots of gratitude from the people who’ve been on the show, saying they are thankful for the opportunity to talk and promote their business. It’s certainly given me a great insight into how the businesses work, and there is definitely a common thread – each has a desire to collaborate, which is becoming increasingly important in the future of high tech.”
