Meet the Boss: Sunny Johal - Detail 


In this episode, I meet Sunny Johal of Detail; a relatively new Developer, but with big ambitions, based in Birmingham. In this episode;

  • How Covid has been an accelerator on a number of fronts which has seen certain sectors grow rapidly.
  • How Birmingham and other cities outside of London are seeing growing investor interest, both UK and International investors.
  • Sunny’s views on the future of the industry, including the ramp up in a drive for net carbon and why the end client must be a catalyst for this.
  • How the younger generation of construction professionals will also drive this change.
  • The value of looking after and listening to your supply chain.
  • How Sunny started life as a labourer and the value this gave him in terms of learning how to deal with everyone in the supply chain.
  • How Detail actively engage with the whole supply chain to ensure they are being treated fairly.
  • Why Sunny believes you should never say you can’t do anything in your career.
  • The power of key mentors at the right time in your career who support your personal growth.
  • The increasing need for emotional intelligence in leaders in the industry and why the industry must look at developing future leaders.
  • Why Sunny doesn’t believe qualifications are the be all and end all.

This is a great listen; you see why it is clear Sunny and his business will be the future of the industry; a must listen!
