Welcome to Wild Cards, the podcast for anyone looking to take their game to the next level.
In each Wild Cards episode, Tillo CEO and Founder Alex Preece is looking to expose, root out and understand what truly makes a person a Wild Card - an outlier that thinks differently and goes against the grain.
Alex will be talking to fascinating minds across many technology sectors, including entrepreneurs, game changers, record breakers, and everything in between. He’ll be delving into the latest industry trends and uncovering the stories behind the successes and failures of his guests, all the while discovering what made them into a Wild Card and how becoming one has helped them along the way.
Alex himself knows what it is like to be a Wild Card. He started his career in the British Army and spent seven years jumping out of military planes and touring both Iraq and Bosnia on operational duty before founding and later selling the UK’s first daily deal business to moneysupermarket.com in a deal reported to the city worth £11m. In 2016, he then went on to co-found Tillo, which quickly became one of the fastest-growing businesses in the gift card industry.
Today, Tillo has processed more than £2 billion worth of digital gift cards and, in doing so, has changed the way that gift cards are perceived by fintechs and the wider B2B community. Thanks to Tillo’s innovative platform, gift cards have evolved from unwanted Christmas gifts and are now recognized as a powerful tool that can help companies to drive loyalty, acquisition and growth - You might even say they’re a Wild Card themselves - (see what we did there).
If you’re ready to discover what it means to be a Wild Card, then dive into our very first episode, an interview with Gail Cohen, Director General of the GCVA, and don’t forget to follow our new Wild Cards Twitter and Instagram accounts which will soon be filled with all of the latest podcast updates.
