“Without wishing to sound like an 80s DJ, my one to watch is James Cousins of Geeka Media, who I refer to as my ‘YouTuber’ but he is so much more than this. During one of the most economically challenging times, he moved into this first office and then took on his first employee. Then during lockdown two, he moved to a larger office and increased his staff to three. Not bad for a 19-year-old! His business acumen, personality and synergy really is infectious” – Penny Rob, Centre Manager @ UWSP
