The Outliers Inn

A Podcast

"The Outliers Inn" is a place where people from all businesses and roles within business can examine goins-ons from different and (hopefully) humorous perspectives. It's a place where we can be a lit less serious about ourselves, what we do, what our businesses do, and the manner in which they do it.

Whether you are in finance, sales, logistics, production, operations, human resources, facilities management, information technology -whatever your role might be - business people are always taking themselves too seriously - or are taken too seriously by others. All that ends here.

It's a place where respectful irreverence and self-deprecating humour is the order of the day.
