Who are we?

3Dads is collectively made up of 3 Devonian business friends, James Twigger, Martin Bignell and Lee Randall-Pybus. Each has their own wealth of knowledge and experience in a wide range of business models. 

The idea of the 3Dads and a Business Book podcast was born during the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020, initially to give each of the dads a platform to discuss their working week and balancing working from home. Martin evolved the idea to share their thoughts on a business book and aim to reach more people who perhaps need another voice to hangout with during their working day.
