Searching for Mana with Lloyd Wahed


Welcome to the Searching for Mana show in association with the London Stock Exchange, the leading podcast that interviews tech’s most influential leaders, innovators and disruptors to discover their mana – the superpower that has helped them to succeed. Hosted by Lloyd Wahed, co-founder of the Mana group, which is focused on building the future of work via their search, lab and venture business, the podcast is a must-see/listen for industry insiders, established or budding entrepreneurs, or anyone with an interest in the most exciting and dynamic sector in the world.
