MacroActive: Scaling You

June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We’re very excited to hear from MacroActive’s founder and CEO at this month’s networking dinner when we welcome John Franich and Ken Brickley to talk to us about embracing the personality differences between founders & CEO’s. They will tell the story of their business:

  • harnessing the differences in leadership style & substance;
  • maintaining style as you scale;
  • the importance of self awareness;
  • promoting your business and personal brand… and more!

John is the driving force alongside Ken Brickley of the MacroActive exercise and nutrition SaaS platform.

John’s background in the technology sector stretches back more than 25 years, from Silicon Valley start ups to multinational corporates. For the last 9 years his interest has been firmly fixed on the online business space and especially around the delivery at scale of personalised exercise and nutritional plans. Firstly with Josef Rakich Fitness and since 2015 as the founder of MacroActive Ltd.

MacroActive is a SaaS platform for trainers and social media influencers who want to deliver their own unique customised exercise and nutrition plans. The majority of MacroActive customers are international and 2019 is looking like a watershed year for the company.
