John Peebles, Administrate

John Peebles

CEO, Administrate

John Peebles is the CEO of Administrate, and has been growing the company since 2012. A developer by background, John made the switch to executive a long time ago and has spent the past 13 years growing healthcare and education technology startups in America and Scotland.

He is passionate about education, great teamwork and technology, and often speaks on these subjects around the world. Rumour has it that he used to front a hard rock band, which would explain the hair (and dubious musical taste.)

The Greatest Lies the Devil Ever Told to Startups

Drawing from experience with multiple tech startups across multiple industries, this talk will focus on common mistakes I’ve observed. Mistakes that I’ve made, successes I’ve seen, and opportunities to benefit from advice I’ve been given will be explored. Founders often struggle with how to benchmark themselves, how to grapple with various stakeholders, and how to implement a strategy designed to maximise value, and I’ll talk about actionable strategy and tactics to help make your journey just a little less painful.
