The guest on this show is Damian Bradfield, President and CMO of WeTransfer. With 40 million active users and 1 billion files transferred every month, WeTransfer is not only an incredibly successful file-sharing service but also a much-loved platform that supports and inspires creatives around the world.

Damian joined WeTransfer in 2010 along co-founders Nalden and Bas Beerens. I met Damian shortly after his talk at this year's Tech Open Air and caught him for a conversation on company values, trust and partnerships with the likes of FKA Twigs, Moby and Gilles Peterson. 

The 5 key take aways from Damian:

  • How to remove ego and always put creators first
  • Trust is bigger than business
  • Do one thing really well, and do it honestly
  • Listen and learn from your users
  • Do what you're passionate about. And make it sustainable
