#151 Will Beckett, CEO of Hawksmoor, on Teaching Skills, Not Techniques

Hawksmoor is a British steakhouse and cocktail bar chain founded by Will Beckett and Huw Gott in 2006, after they set out in search of the perfect steak. Fast forward to today, they run nine steakhouses based in London, with a recent new opening in New York City. Will joins the show to share how they have built a business that they are proud of.  

This is a truly enlightening conversation where we explore how Hawksmoor makes their customers feel special. We also discuss prioritising your staff, his management and leadership philosophies, how he finds balance – and what we can learn from table stakes.
