EQ Session with Toon Gysells, CEO of Talabat

“The role of a CEO founder changes over time, and you need to adapt to that. How you shape and share a vision, and how you run a company, ” says Toon Gysells, CEO of Talabat.

Toon led an intimate and candid discussion with the Womentum 2019 cohort, based on his personal experience, about what it takes to be a CEO including building a company culture, hiring, firing, decision making, and the changing role of a CEO founder as the company scales up.

“You have to decide on firing people. Who ever doesn’t raise the bar for the company, is lowering the bar for the company, and it is contagious. It’s also ok to fire the wrong person,” he says.

An integral part of the Womentum Accelerator is the emotional intelligence (EQ) and mental health sessions that are held throughout the program, giving entrepreneurs a well-rounded experience that helps them grow on personally and professionally. Talabat was Womentum’s Catering Partner for the Dubai rotation of the four-month accelerator.
