Six minute video interview with Dag Lee, Chairman Taipan Invest

I’ve just returned from the IHRSA Convention held in Dublin. While there, I took the opportunity to grab a few people and ask them their views on business. However, there was a little twist. I prepared 50 questions on cards and they had to call out a number and then give me an immediate response to the question – not so easy, when someone is pointing a video camera in your face!

This first interview is with Dag Lee, who is now the Chairman of Taipan Invest. Dag is also a non-executive board member at Actic, a private equity owned fitness chain operating in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Germany.tions */ @font-face {font-family:”Cambria Math”; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:1; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-format:other; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:0 0 0 0 0 0;} @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-1610611985 1073750139 0 0 159 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:””; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:”Times New Roman”,”serif”; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin;} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-size:10.0pt; mso-ansi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt;} @page Section1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt; margin:72.0pt 72.0pt 72.0pt 72.0pt; mso-header-margin:36.0pt; mso-footer-margin:36.0pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} –> Dag’s former role was CEO at SATS, the Nordic health club group.

Dag had some tough questions. Here is the result:

Question themes:

Dag talks about the SATS ‘Core Model’ which is the SATS corporate ‘bible’ which all employees are taken through, ‘MySATS’ (a member induction programme), and finally, the best business idea he never implemented.

Apologies for the video ‘shake’ at the start.
