#125 - The enigma of Tim Cook

22 mins | Jan 17, 2022

Today's episode from 17th January 2022. We start the week by talking about the most valuable company in the world - Apple. After it became the first company to have a $3-trillion market, we discuss what impact CEO Tim Cook has had and if he gets the credit he deserves. Then later, are you a "we first" or a "me first" type of person? We explore what both are and how we'll need both if we are to build better organisations in the future. Tim Cook’s legacy is set in stone but he lacks the “magic moment” that propelled his predecessor into stardom. For the Financial Times, Patrick McGee looks back at his unparalleled success taking over position as Apple’s CEO, analysing the way he managed to revolutionise how the company is perceived in the eyes of investors, and his keen sense of where Apple fits in the booming technology landscape. Great institutions like the BBC and the NHS show that neither can work effectively alone. If we want more of the positives of capitalism and less of the negatives, there’s an important task in the decades ahead: to build more of the great institutions that best keep its worst aspects at bay. For The Guardian, Will Hutton explores which sort of philosophy is needed to help us with such an ambition. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
