That's what i call reviews review face a. there's also review phase.

Back up to eleven teleport back to the fourth. That's review phase. A mahachi writes about this. But in refute review phase be you can have a bunch of sensations in that.

But she's an idiot in multiple languages. She's an idiot. So, according to Ana Navarro, it's okay. So I just wanted you to know that now, D Lemon said, No, I don't think it is. And the the Republican stiff he had from the George H. George W. Bush administration. He didn't think it was a good idea, either. But Ana Navarro thought it was a good idea. So Thought to myself. Are you a buffoon? You're just inviting people to be rude to you. Well, that's hurt. That's her tactic. No big deal, she said. What happened? Dr Carlson? Do you think of that? Mr Producer? Isn't that kind of stupid?
The View's Ana Navarro Fails to Recognize Global Issues
"Ana Navarro. And she's on this show that's filled with Renta's called the View. Of course, the view discriminates. Because there's not a single male on the panel are women. But that's okay. That's allowed So it's a It's a real crap show to begin with. But listen to this Ana Navarro. Cut seven go Look, I think we as a country have got to come to terms with the fact that this is now a an epidemic in America, not a pandemic, because it's not have it happening all over the world. No, it's not happening all over the world. No, no, no. The Middle East. Parts of Africa. Central and South America. See low I Q morons like this. On the one hand, they say people are coming to come into the country, our country because of all the crime in Central and South America and the crime and In various states countries in Africa and the Middle East and so forth. No, no, no. This is an American problem. Only you see, because the communist Chinese, they're rounding up speakers and other people They don't like. Murdering them, putting them in concentration camps. But America sucks in every respect. So this is a an American problem. Only an American problem. I would say it's this. It's a Democrat party. Problem. They have created this situation. They won't prosecute criminals. They won't throw him in prison. They have bail reform. They have liberal judges they have bought and paid for prosecutors. There's involved she won't get into any of it. She just wants to trash America. America. America sucks. Well, how come there's not this kind of crime in all of America? Can you explain that to me?
How Camp Anneewakee Systematically Skirted State Inspections
"Thank once maybe twice a year people from the state would come out to do like an inspection or something. This is terry a former patient at the ana wakey campus in rock mart. The all girls facility. She remembers her time. How the staff would handle visits from state agencies. That were meant to check on the treatment center and how it operated with anna wakey now being a licensed medical facility. It had to be recorded the patients who were getting the proper treatment. They were supposed to and i remember the first time when they came out they picked like three of us. Girls should be the one to answer any questions and so they took the rest of the group like way way out into the woods like a mile out into the woods. And i can remember when the first inspector lady came. One of the group leaders told her. The girls are out on a work project about a mile out in the woods. I guess they just knew that the inspector probably wanting to hike out a mile that we were available though there were like three of us and we were told even before the inspector came if they asked if we met with a psychiatrist to let them know that we did and that we had thirty to forty five minutes sessions at this point in time in a wiki was sold to the parents of its patients largely as a medical treatment center with daily therapy in. Reality this therapy was greatly exaggerated often amounting to no more than a few minutes at most within actual therapist. I don't think my parents realized until. I got out that i really didn't get the help that i needed. We would see a psychiatrist. I i want to say once a week might have been every other week we would literally like get an a line and go one after the other and you only get a few minutes and they were just right on a clipboard in they would literally look at the clock and say okay.

Anna Ploszajski: Crafting to Better Understand Material Science
"This episode. I'm talking to dr anna. Precise ski immaterial. Scientists channel swimmer and stand up comedian about her latest venture. Writing newburgh handmade assigned to search for meaning through making. I wanted to start off with understanding a bit more about the material. I found the most fascinating in the book. Blas which as we all know to be solid actually has the molecular structure of a liquid. Could you tell me a little bit more about that. Ana yeah definitely. I think a lot of people would have heard of this of the rumor. That glass is actually very very very viscous liquid in the evidence that we have for. This is very old. Panes of glass in medieval churches are episode a thicker the button than they are at the top and intuitively. We think well that must mean that. This class has been flowing down to gravity over hundreds of years that for it must by viscous liquids while there's also a molecular argument for that as well because if you zoom into clawson and see where the atoms and molecules are inside they are. Bene- jumbled up mess they're very rigidly bonded to each other so they don't move that they their structure is what we describe as offices. Very kind of jumbled up this structural order to in particular infrastructure is very similar to the structure of liquid. If you were to have a look at water zoom in and see by the atoms molecules are inside than they would be kind of randomly tumbling over each other and in in no particular order as well. The structure of glass and the structure of bhutto's liquid is via similar. Now this is in contrast to what we describe him. It's your science. As a as crystalline materials and is is a good example of a crystalline material when water freezes if the molecules lineup in very neat rows and columns in a kind of three structural lattices. That it's very predictable. It's very ordered. It's very beautiful. And that's how we describe. The atoms inside material's crystalline site is is a good example of metals or crystalline. As well when you hate izhak from below zero degrees two zero degree celsius as the ice melts it melts at the very distinct melting temperature because its molecules are in this very distinctive crystalline ordered structure so zero degrees is enough energy to break all of those bonds between those molecules and allow them to slosh over each other emanating.

"Like I need another cup of coffee. I know where he can get some. Idea to and seven eleven delivers just in case in Iran Rush Cup I don't know if this'll be the big big mega mega thought, but I would tell you. This crisis has reinforced underscored. Put a pin on how customer needs change. And they don't change at the rate or the pace that we want them to. On the business. And so more than anything how is an organization? Do we mobilize? Do we operate what are ways of working to respond and still to anticipate those changes? We've we've really been in a responsive mode for much of the past six months, but we're very much entering a phase of how do we start to anticipate what this is GonNa look like and develop different types of toolkits or play books or approaches to meet that changing. Shift in consumer demand and as a retailer, the other of evolution I would say is it's not just about the products that we sell, but it's about what we sell and how we sell it and the how we sell it as literal right is both the physical place where resell it it's our digital platforms, but it's all star communication or tonality, and our understanding of what those those consumer needs are both functional needs as well as more emotional. Needs and so how do we meet those? That's something. We don't have the full solution to today, but it's really inspired a new kind of awakening and desire to learn and understand and get better as we go. So in a positive way, maybe rephrase that or summarize that is empathy empathy and agility as new core skills, and that Sharon, that will be a more. Will. Be More Effective Organization that will result in happier customers and happier employees. That's right. Jim. Thank you for paraphrasing them. Now I do that as the host. So Andrea let's go to you next. Year for me it's how work the organizational agility and embracing that, and the fact that we've had conversations of on the executive team about how we want to keep that. Making quick decisions operating operating at that higher level is is really exciting and encouraging and ensuring we as an executive team, and then we embed that as just an existing ongoing behavior throughout all of our teams in an ongoing way, it gets resulted in smarter decisions better decisions. And more satisfied team in terms of being able to make decisions faster, it's been interesting to see that as well. Come back through us, but just that overall or agility. And the willingness to test and learn as part of that. Mean Pre cove it. If you did any organizational survey, any organization, one of the top three issues would be the time it takes to make a decision. And I think we're making progress on that during this crisis. So Lynn a thought from you about coming through this crisis What you're hopeful about what you hope you. Hope we see change. I guess I would say I think for me. Two things come to live Why I think it's taught us all that we're all connected. I think We should instinctively know that but I think a lot of modern society makes it easy to forget that and a lot of our culture especially in America makes easy to forget that on that. I would also say relate to that is it's all connected. All these things that are happening around us. They're all connected and I think you know from our organization standpoint I think about the things that happened right after the George Floyd. I. Think about everything that's happened around Kobe the conversations we've had to have at work that in the past people with Dean would be completely taboo. AM completely not on the table to be having at work we're having at work and you know we definitely have people asking, why are we talking about this at work or even we've had a lot of conversation about ensuring the mental health of everyone at work and our voice. We had we had a whole meeting about empathy and those are things you know five ten fifteen years ago. You would never been talking about work. This whole thing with zoom we're seeing everybody's families in the background in their kids and their dogs I think that to me goes I liked that I think it's good because I think we operated too long where everything's in silos and it's Kind of like your work is here is there you come to work your disc person at home you're a different person. I think this whole experience is reminding us all that it's all connected and we're all connected and I hope I mean out of it keep that up because I think that gets back to the original point of, but in humanity back in work, but he made back in business. For me I hope that something that continues gone forward. But should be our final word that we're going to get back to Vikrant who started all of this? When asked him the question about what Silicon Valley's? How's how's it going to be different coming out of this so do you wanna take a summary comment of everything we heard from Andrea, Marissa and Lynn Crohn's and take us take home. You know I think that What I'm hoping comes out of this and and. I think it's beyond hope because I do see a lot of initiatives a lot of good. Intent and work happening I feel. This is the time for companies. To To go beyond the walls of their company I don't I don't think a single company's efforts alone will solve the problems we have especially as it relates to racial inequality in this country but I think that you know. The work we do as a corporation has to speak to broader social conditions outside of the walls of the cooperation you know working in a safe and diverse and inclusive environment is necessary, but it's still another. That's not a sufficient condition. It's and and I think companies have responsibility. We have significant assets in a brand of voice in our economics. In our people, we can use to influence and create a different outcome. And I, think that's my hope is is we reflect what's happening inside each of Each of our companies you know I think this this Covid, and and. Social injustice in the where where social justice has been raised. In in everyone's ice to reflecting, looking at what's happening, raising the fat awareness of the fact that no matter how good we think there it is microaggressions still happen things that still happen and we have to go solve the minute Think beyond beyond looking at value of a share of shareholder value we have to look at the values shareholders as well and I think it's it's time for US companies to do that and I'm I'm very hopeful that not only silicon valley but but also Companies at large start to To Act, in a much bigger way. That's very hopeful thawed and one that we probably should end on. I'll give you one shot here before we sign off, do you have anything for your host? Anything. You want ask me anything you want to ask each other before we sign off..

You'll feels was like because I think it's because they they knew my true assets and I think in New York. I've made some good friends as well.

It's it's you know being around my family I just I like being very laid back and chilling now and I love riding horses horse right I am.

Most people people like you do not seem like a guy who knows how to drive stick shift. I'm all about state so yeah rode horses. I wrote Western. It people trail riding the door. But yeah so I think my essence is ultimately experienced all of it But I'm very guarded around the people closest to me and and I think that's it things sharing nor is I also have a loving challenge for you. What if you share more all of my essence or choices so that you don't you can fully be yourself so you know I? It's interesting right so I came into advertising advertising. Because I'm a firm believer that you you need to do what you and who you are as a person so when I was in financial services I did feel a big dichotomy I was. I'm this creative dude. Naturally I mean it's very technical field. It's very and also I need to be in field. I get to be one with Hawaiian and or Reggie coming into. Advertising has allowed and now focusing on writing articles and all that sort of stuff so it's set continual journey of just being in tune with myself completely like in writing I would say is a quarter who I am like. I love writing at one point. Is Hamas really good at it and if I have a regret it would be the. I didn't write more because I was thought it'd be a skill salad. Always have but like anything.

The best way was modeled for me as I was going through different pieces and I mean I started off my professional career in financial services and then after eight years and financial services transitioned over into the world of advertising and I was very fortunate especially in the world of advertising for my first boss The tree soon as I saw it within six months of being at W. P. my oldest really sick nick and my my first boss was like take all the time off that you need. Don't even question it. Come and go as you want. So I was very fortunate to see it modeled Ed from day. It was almost like by seen it model. It was almost like saying it's allowed because up until that point in time Like I also come from like a very like an Asian culture. It's very very tech. Drew a very logical driven. Almost everyone I know that think to be was an engineer at Like the four word. No one in my family ever says love so you so I come from that type of background as well and even though empathetic in the workplace I was always taught in university. They'll give you a close on Youtube. This giving management finance all the rest of it so it wasn't until I saw it being modeled and being a recipient of it and what it did for me in terms of made me more loyal will like I literally was doing partnerships out of hospital waiting rooms now because I felt the pressure to do it because but because I wanted to and loyalty to my boss and to the firm as a the result of it so I've realized more empathetic. You are and really understand what people are going through. People were the pretend that to you. Dividends diffidence because loyalty. Such a key thing when you get people I have to believe. And I've seen it that people were tended to by being good to you by working halted by wanting to do what's best for the firm and so forth also want to emphasize that we're talking about it. It's not so much where gamification trying to nyc manipulate someone to do something to me. Actually yes the outcome is greater in. That's the juice we are in a human human oriented organization and the interconnectivity. The how you share how you provide space for people that you serve with. That's the juice right because otherwise I would easily be. You know programming something tools. And that's that it's not interesting interesting to me right. Yeah absolutely. Yes shouldn't be so the minute you have the attention that it's going to give you an outcome of a pestle be more loyal. It needs to be more authentic than its basic principle of treat others the way you want to be treated And that's it. You know just trying to be a good person be a good human being and even so for my career at the firm has been around developing collaborations and partnerships. And I've prided myself on being a fit fair business partner just from the human perspective. You could hear all the lawyers not where I'm like. Hey also disavowed partner. We need to give it back to them as well. It has to be fair And there are times you know. I'll be honest I've been burnt. Where fairness isn't reciprocated from a partner? You know you can't win all of them and I'm okay with that. I need to know that I can go to sleep at night knowing that. I've been a fair practitioner because ought to be known as a fair practitioner of partnerships and collaborations then being known known as someone who is unfair. Yeah totally and ultimately I love the way you articulated because you did it for you right so you can go to sleep sleep at night. There is a cost of trying to maximize profit or trying to get the most out of someone gets what to me. Life is a long game right and you have a reputation. If you're repetition is yeah working with C K is an example you know I feel shitty. Yeah Shit no one wants to win. Maybe this time you get some you know some short term gains by long-term wise almost be around you right so thank you so much better assurance generously so talk a little bit about. How do you actually imploring that? Because you're uh-huh speaking from it individual person's point of view you have given you have received. How do you actually still that? Because I would say that. That's pretty tricky. So it's interesting as I came to council transitioning WPP within A few weeks we had a product launch. I had to lead and this product to the team had been working on it for months it was such a large opportunity not and they were so big that no-one tackle it and so came in and literally. We had six six weeks to launch this product and the product name bows attribution And we had to launch at can and there were so many stakeholders involved with partner we had of a forty people internally and love it was just listening to what everyone had to say. Hi and in listen to what they had to say then also understanding what what is the communication saw so like why this one member on the team Super Smart Guy and and his emails on a different level because they were the luminous offer academic and I there was so long I was just like no one's GonNa be able to read all these e mail so I realized very quickly that the way you scale something like that as you call them so so then I realized that that communication jollity was you. This is a person who needs to. We spoke to on the phone to get the message and distill it. Here's a person who needs to WHO's cool speaking in public environments varmints. It's understanding your team. And just it's that emotional. The e q alternate of knowing how and when people want to be spoken to the so. I think it's just understanding feeling out where your team is and understanding how they want to engage what's the most effective way to join outcome for business us but a lot of industry is just listening so that you can figure out. I think a lot of folks that jump headfirst and do this do that. We are economy. A of dictatorship is over. We are in a collaboration economy and the only way a collaboration can happen is if people felt like they are hers and that you are taking them seriously and you are really making them feel valued and that their contribution plays a role in the final outcome. We're trying to bring forward. How do you teach to your managers or someone who is not you? Who who has daily prayer faith. Strong family background in. Because I mean actually share. Share this with you Companies that I previously where at we tend to want to find people who are like US similar values and practices the depth of was them Deeper winners Eq. All of that right. If you look for someone who's exactly like you gonna find it because there's only one in us there's one okay. Well how do you scale that level of depth and awareness. So this is where. Here's a funny truth right so so this is where being a minority has been helpful. Because there's when I start my career as a grownup resorting to look like me in the professional force and ed I never had a manager who was my background either anything to that nature so I used to dealing with people who want like me right so that almost has now become a. It's an asset because I look for is a skill set and also look for chemistry. Do we as people got along with people from very backgrounds at differences. Because like I said I've I've always been different and to now we're lucky we are in a place in time with being different is considered good. But it's just bringing people who are right for the job but people that you have chemistry with who you understand they understand you and I think that's really important to like and trust the people that you work with regards to what backgrounds who've come come from like I said like I've led global teams. Where even though there are commonalities is also differences and I think we as people will like then diagrams this pieces of a star like in those pieces? This is a different. It's just how'd you bring that right permutation together to get the best business outcome. Because I don't want people the same and I think that's why especially in advertising. That's where we run into big issues with campaigns and so forth where we have all the same people.

"Could inspire people to not don't give up on what their goals are. What dreams what aspirations are because we all face hardships myself included? It's how do you overcome them with out. Losing focus of what it is that you're trying to achieve so if this could help someone continue down the path that'd be brilliant. I think one of the pieces that I feel connected it to you about is every time I read some of your content and this the great thing about content never know the kind of day. Someone's having a small piece wisdom of any any sort could make someone's day or push them in the right direction of where they're wanting to go even when it feels hard. So I'm hoping this podcast. When people feel that they're experiencing hardship hardship depending on the day that having this helps them get to the next place and just to continue the good fight to become the best person they want to be as beautiful beautiful? So what actually bring you namesake just a little bit as you share with me before we started recording. We name his first name. Your last name being in going to that colluded so my first name is an office and an Arabic. It's means humanity. It's actually based on a prayer. Coal sewer a NAS. And it's about God's creation and humanity as a whole in my lost name is Ghazi which means warrior poet for me so just putting those two together. I was named by my mother Eh. It's a person WHO's trying to be a warrior of thoughts ultimately what a perfect guest then noble warriors. Yes I know I know you call these things it's perfect. It's all perfect I I really appreciate being here. Thank you and no they reach out to me and say hey. Ah Ah story I wanted to share right and I'm so glad that we met right as right away. There's a resonance absolutely just your name your presence. We're being so tell us a little bit about why. Why your desire to help people overcome harsh? Everyone has an origin story. And I'm here. Here's my biggest superpower highest intention comes from in my desire desire to empower people to alleviate suffering to inspire them to really step into purpose mostly came from my my own journey. When I first started I was following the the status quo? Life should go this way in a very rigid. Wait in an throughout the journey of Following the path of science and engineering hiring to entrepreneurship to now where I'm at right now sharing wisdom. It's wanted say while he's been all over the place but I would say no. The core through line of my life has been the pursuit of wisdom. I just didn't have the words for that. So share with us. A little bit of awarding story of Whitest desire to share to alleviate struggle adversity hardship. So there's a couple pieces to that right so I think I have to take it back to my childhood house race and so forth so it was born raised in the UK and my mother is of Indian. Burmese to set my father's of box. Donnie and Turkish descent and raised in the UK. My my parents both let them come from US phenomenal families of extreme fortitude grandfather. What he's called? What School Degi Guitar Landowner? And that's generational racial to being one of the first mattress giants of India to my father and his family being boxed on during the time of the partition. His his his family's journey to my father leaving England box on for England. Eighteen to go to school so we came from this. I come from this lineage of people who are entrepreneurs believes and strives who have done extremely well parents got married moved to the UK and we went from being this family of having halves. CBS having a country house in Norwich England. And all the rest of it to my father passing away when I was three and my mother a widower twenty eight with five children youngest being three I children oldest being nine yeah so foreign woman in a ultimately a new land that she was a native of and so we went from having all these things to to my mother's sewing teddy bears for us and our coats. And you know. We had a renter in our house. Because we we needed money to and my making some Moses for a theme park called Chessington Zoo so we we've we've seen my family and I we've seen the bifurcation of life have have nots and one of my biggest things. I've always been a dreamer. Big Time driven. I could get lost in my even as a as a child so I think having those aspirations expirations of this is what I want my life to be like and one of the core values. My mother isn't still door. VOSS is you're not defined by you are at the moment because monster moments change you will define but you are decide where you come from. So we're very proud family lineage. And you know this idea of bloodline it's also the characteristics that you invite in by US bloodline so my mother like who I remember the first time we went to a home in India. It's practically palatial to seeing that fallacious relations like a palace to seeing how life was an England where you lived in a very modest home and so forth. Mom You came from this. You're living like this and she's at that shouldn't doesn't matter what does mattress who are person character and your work ethic and not to be defined by the failure that you have in life but to come above them so back to your the question of. What's the story to share? It's that it's people have ups and downs all the time and I'm reference my Momma la La. I'm just going to be on this. The people have ups and downs all the time. But my mom has taught me and my four sisters is that everyone force what defines you is. How quickly and how gracefully getup and that's the the story? Because I think a lot of times people see instagram version of Liberia invasion of life. We share on twitter. That's true just the tip of the iceberg of who you are. We all rotated by that submerged iceberg of paying hardship overcoming resilience. And I think more people need to see that because it takes many. I'd like to see many nights to be an overnight success and I think it's to shed light on. Hey what success means different people but what that journey has been bottom of iceberg. uh-huh so beautiful. Mom was quite a master teacher for you. Oh absolutely absolutely still is to this place of safety for all my siblings and yeah well until this day we all speak to my mom every day not every day. We are very very very much on the way here. We're a very very close knit family. And I think fortunate but that also happens and I've read a little of psychology is when a parent pulses away. Siblings families tend to become even closer. So we've always been like this Armata and as my mom would say we're like five fingers on one hand when you wouldn't together your strongest so we've just genetically we who we are as well but not everyone so blessed to have such mother right right. So what a blessing you had mentioned uh resilience mentioned grace so put myself in a position of my listeners. Yeah because it's easy not easy simple to say. Yeah just pick yourself back up with grace. But in that moment when you're being punched life or adversity or challenges it's quite challenging to actually embody that operational operational is that right right so tell us a little bit about. How do you move from challenged grace in that moment and I literally actually just had this happen to me this week? It was something I really worked by deserved. I was very passionate about and full of good step back from it and it was hard. I mean it was stress headache and all the rest of at the moment. I'm like what the heck is happening. Because they're all moments when you get get punched in the face that you lose faith in humanity right and you're like how can this be how people have morals anymore. People don't stick by the words. I'm a good person. Nope but also the environment around when people do the do the ugly. What the heck is going on So when you're in that moment I think the pizzas has worked for me is a now just taking time and realizing that when things don't work out it's in that moment.

"Enough. American express was my climb and so my client and they asked me to come over to new york from chicago to me at that point felt like a big thing to leave chicago haugen go to like the number one financial in the world was let's do this right and as boy who's born in wembley london in the city was in chicago lived in the suburbs and they went out to school in dekalb illinois so like practically by the border island right so i was craving t- environment so went went to michigan express and i was part of the data analytics capabilities group and for about four weeks my role was to pretty much oversee the relationships with the credit bureau's but also to understand what does data from a variety of sources should be coming into american express's decision for the consumer called services group and risk information management group so that they can make better decisions for the consumer and so actually that was about four weeks and then as a stroke of luck would have it my v._p. At the time she came came up to me and she said you have a facebook account right. I'll say she sake as she was looking at me. Always guiding my question say so you want you get digital right so she's notting ahead for our good. Even i ah i could respond. Also yeah sure facebook where she's at great. She's you can lead the digital transformation for the division and i was like okay and in my head you know i don't know if there's even a brave nece or a little bit of both in my house i couldn't be that difficult so i put together the digital transformation for <hes> risk information management and consumer cards gutman tim's of who should partner with why we should partner with them and ultimately it was solving the problem that american express had at the time and and that was more so how do we increase our called member base so they were looking at reaching out to folks who had nontraditional at that point in time so they wanted to younger consumers of people have divest backgrounds and so forth and it's which platforms can we connect without gal help us reach those audiences right so put together this whole digital roadmap and what's my favorite is because i saw it there. What thing is like september october so i didn't really have any vacation so i worked all through that december it came around january presented it what well and went on to get leadership in action award and so forth and my role to hats now it was lead this digital digital transformation for g in addition to bringing in data deals through some of our net- bureaus and so forth and i mean at american express i really dade at the time it was the c._e._o. And he's a marvel of man in that all the way from him being the this c._e._o. To american express being several thousand people everyone felt a connection to him and why really that from that experience was how he was able to quickly distill information. I think till today what has helped american express ticket is their agility information travels so quickly the very concise i every i mean the town. Oh pulled a every president is burgeoning c. suite of every person that's interesting. That's a a and i haven't interviewed anyone from american express so appreciate the insider insider view to that's pretty interesting and you go from credit bureau who has all the data on everyone to amex who knows at the transaction in level what their members are doing <hes> and and then you you flip the switch if you will to the platform side and digital transformation mation i guess data's the common thread ray. It has a completely right and that's why i tell folks. Data is now like a thing. I came into the industry when data was even a career and it's very like the career a lot people have asked me. It's just a career. You thought you were going to have right and austin college. This didn't even exist and even now now the work that we're doing at cantor and so forth of our products infusing a._i. And so forth the these pieces and exists until a euro backer in some cases a few months back and i i think where american express is doing it right and they've always been doing it right is they've always had the foundation of days help their their experience company so they build stories on that day. Take they build experiences on that data because data is only as good as the data. It's the story that you tell and they've done so many good things all the way from these partnership with fashion fashion week to do things with the u._s. Open i mean it to you. Airport lounges they get their called members and that's why they're called and called members and not card holders because they have members of a larger group who they want to treat with respect and give him experiences that will help give them a better life right. You're so true so true are they. You said it much more eloquently than i can but the fact that they were using the data for the benefit and utility of their members <hes> was was fantastic and everyone's trying to emulate that in some ways now they are investing. I think a lot of this is about speed to market right so i think these brands who have done it i they've they've just made a cachet behind it is this is who we all this is what we stand for all the way to the partnership with the new york taxis where you could use your credit leslie berlin and twitter sink that was like a big that was actually the first big social media relationship that went in place to that was like two thousand team two thousand fourteen they have been innovators and they've done it quickly but they've done it in a way where is improving the life and the experience of their called member base and so your amex then you end up at w. p. Oh gosh yeah so how tells about that transition and leading the data alliance eventual sure so interesting enough. If you're gonna realize the theme of my life i guess fired a lot by television and i literally was watching an episode of madmen and it was the episode assode where'd don draper was a pitching the idea of the carousel for kodak and as the pictures flipping up and they're coming up on screen and i watched that episode now i could do that this. I called my sister safina funeral. I think wanna get to advertising my sisters. You are nutcase but this this is what we've learned to expect with you. Let me see who i know who could try and connect you up. So as khalil gibran would say what you seek is seeking you so my sister connected me with someone. One who i met lesson that was never turn down a meeting so i met this gentleman jim tobacco and met with impove now our and nothing happened the six months later. He reached out to me and i'm with a phone call w._p. And they've got this group called data alliance would could you be open to to coming in so i was like sure why not and he's he sends me this literally six page job description which was is everything and the bathroom sink and a lot in ice or job descriptions. I would say you know sixty percents of else. I could do twenty percent of it. I could figure out twenty percent l. Just fudge vic figure out over the drought but when i saw the job description as i've done all of this so i could do this so a short minogue back and with immunities c._e._o. Wants to meet you all right and went in and i met the c._e._o. Who at the time was nick. Knight the hat who's currently the chief digital off canton and also the chairman of our profiles division so i met him. He spoke about division but what was the hook for me to come to w._p._p. As much as i understood with the group was trying to do it was i felt a connection to nick as a person and it and that is a ruled. I've actually let i have to pick people over job. Titles and descriptions i just felt very connected to nick and his vision and the type of person that he was when i grow on nick that was what was supposed to be a half hour. Forty five minute meeting ends up being like two and a half thousand. I walked him to the train and and i was just at this is it i'll say this is the place i want to be so came to date alliance and what data alliance that the remember days alliance who was very much to bring together data partnerships so that we could bring those those day to assets into w._p._p.'s decision systems so what we what we refer to as house we'll have coined data destinations so how'd you bring data into the d. n. p. over at one time and how do we bring data into <hes> pre and platform than into platform how'd taste into their how to bring day and enter the panels council so that we could understand the three hundred and sixty degree view of an audience so that we could reach them with the the right message at the right time so the first partnership that we place low behold was twitter up and then from there we data surfed and offer that it was facebook book initially the team was based in new york and as the pawnshops began growing the benefit was really apparent. There was a desire for us to branch launch because we had also become at that point in time. A center of excellence of how do you do data partially created oldies frameworks of this how you do and this is. What how are we gonna evaluate partnerships so we were able to do at scale so then after that help support the the landing of or the expansion of data lines indicate in south africa in between johannesburg and cape kicked out right so like it's working and what was beneficial at that time like nick his leadership like has just been brilliant he was like if you've got an idea just make it happen and so came up with this entire structure of how we should do more expansion because we've been getting folks from u._p. India indonesia china all over the world saying we want d._a. We expanded to these regions because we want to. We want to not only leverage data decision systems. We also want to tell stories and we also wanna have relationships across all these sport. Also i mean end to end d._a. We did over twenty two partnerships with spotify horrify facebook twitter. I mean you name it all the big ones and as pure out that supports each one of those so we began so i started off as a director and dan began doing these partnerships and then began doing expansion and then move my web from director to global director managing director than to c._e._o. In about three and a half she is fast but you know i think it was false because it doesn't feel like work right. It was just something so intuitive and so natural to what i wanted to do. I was always the environment that i was in. It was a false failure ebb and they were failures.
