A Voice Changer

"I bring a voice changer. Sometimes you need to change the tone of the conversation. Literally. "


War Helmets, Gongs and Chants

"Yodle has an intensely fun culture. Every team in our office has a unique identity and a chant that they do every morning and every afternoon. Creating team identities has created camaraderie and healthy competition. It has also pushed people to be more productive in a fun way."


Tears

"Starting a company is hard, and the stress seems to come out at staff meetings. They are more like a counselling session for me. Employees leave scarred and scared, and I leave relaxed and at peace! "


M&Ms

"I don't know what it is, but everyone in my company loves M&Ms. I bring an entire bowl of them into every meeting, and it always ends up empty. They always leave happy."
