About this talk

This week on The New P&L we speak with Rachel Carrell, founder & CEO, Koru Kids, UK’s fast-growing tech companies, which is dedicated dedicated to building the world’s best childcare service. Rachel was working in healthcare when she experienced first hand how difficult and expensive it was to arrange childcare, and decided to found Koru Kids. She has since received national and international numerous awards including ‘Inspirational Mother of the Year’ and ‘Best Businesswoman in Tech’, and was elected a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in recognition of her work. We discuss with Rachel: · How the traditional values represented by the Koru (the unfurling silver fern frond and a component in Māori art and tattooing) play out day to day in her business · Whether Rachel sees her business as a childcare business or a technology-led market disruptor · The training, mentoring and personal and professional management techniques Rachel employs to keep herself grounded and focused on leading an organisation of this nature · Lessons in remote working from a business that has this model at its operational heart · The balance between autonomy and adherence to core cultural values in business · Why entrepreneurialism is so predominant among immigrant communities · How Rachel is defining success in her business today and how this has changed since Koru Kids launched · Rachel’s view on the key qualities and characteristics of principled leadership in business Insta: @korukidsofficial LI: To join The New P&L movement go to: and subscribe.

We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
