Ben Harmanus is Head of Brand Marketing EMEA at HubSpot, set up and hosts HubSpot's Digital Helpdesk podcast, and co-authored the best-selling conversion book, Content Design.

Ben took me back to his Hubspot early days and explains how a combination of resilience and determination enabled him to get the podcast off the ground despite his colleague's initial reservations.

In a previous life, Ben was heavily engaged in extreme sports and explains how that has shaped his thoughts about failure.
