Today our guest is Charlie Thuiller, the Co-founder of Oppo Brothers Ice Cream, the award-winning, lower-calorie ice cream he, and his co-founder, his brother Harry, created in 2012. I'm a HUGE fan of Oppo ice cream and as you'll hear me and my partner smash through multiple tubs a week so this was a special interview for me.
We cover a lot in this chat, and charlie has got bundles of great advice and actionable tips for us to take on board.
We chat about rules, when they can be broken, how to reach for the opportunities when people see challenges, how to move towards your strengths, mistakes made and lessons learned from the oppo journey, brazil, and how experiences move beyond that one moment and can last a lifetime.
Charlie is so humble and it made it easy to chat away with him, so please sit back and enjoy my conversation with Charlie from Oppo.
