How to go from $2.225B to zero, the collapse of a 150 year family business.

In this interview, Warwick Fairfax, a 5th generation family member of the John Fairfax company based  in Australia candidly shared how he was personally responsible for taking down the family business at age 26. Armed with an MBA from Harvard, Warwick decided to launch a $2.225B takeover which led to the collapse of the family business. 

Warwick describes what that fateful day was like, how he felt and most importantly, how he overcame this dreadful day.  

A fascinating story of what NOT to do and how emotions trumped intelligence, education and logic.
