Tom goes further into running a family business, and his approach to growing the business, including being open to new ideas, and careful implementation of acquisitions. The discussion then moves on to the values underpinning Tom's leadership, the measuring and monitoring performed within the group and Tom's sources of inspiration.

The episode wraps up with Tom's views on the application and impacts of technology in the print industry, his advice for the leaders of tomorrow, and how he manages to achieve work/life balance with some level of relaxation.
