"Andrew Lebron actually got me the in the group through Brandon Connection and got the group met a lot of successful people more successful than mealtime and started learning a lot started digging deeper into lot of different things. That's where I'm at AS Roma Jesse but again, our wholesale operation was. You know at the time May. Maybe four or five or actually three or four acquisitions. We had elite, Majer successful operation Obviously, it was but I was we're looking to grow with and he said we were always struggling cycling three employees, those types of things, and that's where you know some of his strengths lie and you're going through employees but I also remember like, yes. Creating tools and systems I mean I remember like any gave me a tour of your on boarding. This is not your normal on boarding like it was like is joining a franchise. They're very. We now very systematized to where. That's actually more any strength. So I, DO WANNA shout out anti. We do have a third partner which is Yvo sister and she is another huge huge reason for our success. But when it comes to that's more, her is definitely Boardings, the the systems, the protocols, the processes putting it together that is. Definitely, any because when we started all the badge products We did not have any because she was focusing on the wholesale operation jumping ahead a little bit. But yeah I mean, even have shit basically missed some strike since she possesses. And that's why I think some of the you know a lot of the things that we do together now really weren't so welcoming. He's got strength that I don vice versa and same with Anne right? So you had your really good technical side. So what tools you had the litigator scrub, which when you're talking about is like, what do you mean you can you can pull this of all the people that do. So you have the litigators car what other tools that you have did you create at that time before you guys partnered up? We had some older ones. The mentioned by. texting platforms. The two thousand seventeen is when I started doing like texting platforms and US really basic and I was trying to automate like scrapers and bots and stuff like that. I remember that. Yes. Yep. heels. I like ringcentral. The first one that I actually like basically clear the board. So it can send thousands of masters in ringcentral. Those accounts got shut down the said look at other avenues and then I kinda. Found another platform before even partnered with, we even knew Jesse. It was a Texan platform and it just took like three or four months get running. That's when they basically I think met you and it's like Whoa. You know we can send text messages and all of these things, and that's how I was able to help him a little bit in the beginning and that's like a lot of the things you know he'd come to our office I go to his office and just kind of help. Each other on some of the operational stuff. So you're shrinks were definitely on the technical side Yes and your challenges where people correct, and then you will lose your business like when you guys before you guys partnered up. So I think it was something similar. I want to say three to four acquisition wraps and then disposition manager I. Don't Think Discipline I. Think you guys did that correct I think you get rid of him. Oh Forgot about that but I didn't have a Leeds manager because ours was a little bit different. They would generate a lot more leads rather sources. obviously because I don't have the skill set that he has to create that type of stuff. So you know I haven't my acquisition managers did a blend of you know they were setting out or is sending the text for them they respond to them, and then also you know doing some cold calling themselves. So they got a bigger piece of the Pie than their reps because they weren't self generating but they were still having to you know process and kind of be lead managers and acquisition reps, and I just did a little bit differently. But I think we had similar size operations to time. You had people been with you for a very long time. And that was. were. You guys had the biggest challenge yeah, right. So but you're systems. Or did there okay they would suffice. Yeah and then he started helping me I mean I did my best You know y when he started wholesale Operation Company, you have to even do the stuff that are your weaknesses. If you don't have that position filled I, did my best like I built out a podium to a decent amount. I would dig and I was you know I would say I'm one of the first adopters. Of Text, messaging I was very much on the front side than before it was known her popular and same thing for the cold calling. So I was always digging and finding things but did I probably streamline it and systematize it to its full capacity? Absolutely not right. But you know I did my best is as everybody does have to do when they get started. Yeah and so before you guys part up so you had red. Rocket Fuel. I how I read it actually I just him. When I read I, read it on the airplane where I was going to rent the next two, thousand sixteen or I don't know you went to that. Yeah. Cool. Okay. So you read on the way there. And then you read it after you guys partnered up. Yeah I knew something was right. I. Didn't know how it was. All right that kind of explained it further. I probably like. I probably read it before we partner partnered on everything but we had already had You know our batch partnership and then we decided as we'll get to partnering on everything that we do together now. But it really made me identify like how? Right the relationship was like I felt it. I knew it I knew like I had different strengths. Strengths and so did Anne? But. It really explained it to me better than I could understand where they're coming from really helped me communicate with them better because I'm definitely the crazy one that wants to do anything and everything and all the ideas and it's my job, and then I realize it's my job to get to bring these ideas and have them say, no, no, no, no, no no and then one of them's going to be yes in doubt right so but the understanding that's what I'm supposed to do like I just thought I was being annoying and then I'm like oh That's actually my job. My job is to come up with all this crazy stuff and get a million knows to that one great idea that we could help make our business be that much better. Got It. So was there anything that you saw when you're reading rocket fuel or that you remember from rocket fuel when you guys are talking about potentially partnering up that you saw like this make sense? Yeah. It like you said that really just at least in my mind was segmenting a the job roles in each individual person that you know some of the. Strengths and weaknesses that each person could possess. Because at the time even I mean obviously, I was doing a lot of the stuff. You know even the managerial stuff and things like that. But I mean that I like doing some of it..

"And we're chatting about things and he's asking about the podcast and he said Oh. What type of guests do you partner noted? Well we've had some good ones. I promoted the fight. We were in Bobby Ryan on episode twenty one but I said some of the best ones for me and we've had business Asti. We've had Wayne Gretzky. I spent a raise former teammates. And I told the story of the Dean Evanston podcast only because Dean was so forthcoming in the fact that you guys can recount those those stories from your playing days. I mean it it for sure will be top five. And we've got some good guests common down the road here but that won't be top five. No Yeah. They're they're Dole Brandon connection there to deans from random. Kelly of course was Would be quite familiar with them from his days and Brandon as well. I used to blame that. So whether it's run by the way it's episode seven is episode seven with With denouncing check it out. I'm telling you this comes with the with the guarantee that you will laugh your ass off. I spent the better part of our rob. Blake is on a scouting mission so he left Boca to come to Toronto. He's GonNa go watch Quinton by field play and you know. Some of the Ontario League draft L. One hundred draft picks. Now I know there's GonNa be a vote for. Gm story grades. That are GonNa should just take their chair and sit off to the edge of the stage because they're going to be running up there. The whole first round rob blake could be terrific guests for while just his number one. He's a good guy but some of the stories that he could tell would be would be tremendous as well but we're talking about different teams and yeah we talked about Minnesota and we talked about Colorado as well and and I said to him you know. I was curious as to what Joe Sakic would do leading up to the trade deadline right and we know that they landed some pieces domestic off being among them from the Ottawa senators. But I said you know what do you have any concerns with their goaltending and he just elected know their goaltending is fine. No problems with the goal tending. I wasn't sure about that until very recently. But obviously Joe Sakic's got a better. I for his goaltending than I do. So what are your thoughts on particularity? Pavel? Franco's now well east playing well. They've so we had seen we'd seen Francis last Couple of championships but it was able to rea- them go where you're like man. This guy's pretty good. And he was but he was in Europe and middle cultivating a good career there. Yeah and when they signed him in Colorado they signed him as their number three guy and he played with their American league. Team had a really good year. Last year came up a little bit but but it was with not with the understanding. But I think you could see the bigger picture that he was going to be the backup this year. They had made the trade with Washington. Broadened Philip Group our and grew our was going to be the the number one because semyon Varlamov contract was coming to an end. So now they've got group our and Francis who they have I think had This was kind of their plan any way or their hope and now I look at them and and grew hours out rate now. So Gruber's got a two sixty three goals against average at seventeenth in the league. He's got a point nine one six save percentage that's nineteenth pretty good stuff except Prov Pablo Francis who's taken over since grew hours been injured. He's fourth in both categories. Nine twenty seven. Save percentage two point three zero goals against average eight one two in his last eleven games. So look at those numbers. Like who else you're GONNA get. Why do you need anybody else? They're gonNA use both guys for right now. They've done the job for them. Will they do it in the playoffs? I duNno remember a couple years ago. When Washington won The Stanley Cup Group? Our was in goal before they went to Britain hole in game. Three of the first round. And they're doing this. They're goaltending so in the eleven games Francis played. He's given up three goals against three times. Everything else is below three. That's a much better way to win. And in particular because Miss Nazem Qadri and Matt Calvert and that Stud Miekel Renton mandate. They've decimated their top two lines and they still win. They still get points. They're still on Saint Louis his ass two points behind. Saint Louis with a game in hand like a good team. Oh by the way. They're doing it with Okayo Car. But it doesn't they plug in another guy and in off they go by the way. I WANNA give one guy props here because I think it means absolutely nothing but I. I'm fascinated by this in Saint Louis. The Blues are eight Knoll with Marco Scandal in the lineup. Now I don't know why that matters but there are no and if I were Marco scandal. After every win I'd come into the room and go win win win boys. That's all we do. What a lottery. First Gambella right you start the year in Buffalo. You get traded to Montreal home by the way he's hall that's Yeah and then yet delta again but to a place where you've got an excellent chance of winning a Stanley Cup. So it's been quite a year for Marcos. Gondola member the Jeffersons theme song moving on up moving bill. Yeah you do things are going to. Is it to the west side or Eastside to a deluxe apartment in the scene. Yeah it's coming back to me now. Oh yeah that was Sitcom Heyday right. There really was The beauty of the general manager's meetings are again Boca Raton. Well that's part of it for sure but you know there's no trade deadline to worry about. These guys are relaxed right. I mean the guys that were in the playoffs or more relax guys that are on the playoffs line or less relaxed which I also find amusing because we we normally congregate in the lobby bar. And it's it's amusing to me. You've got the hockey games on. You can just see like Arnold Callanan doesn't show a whole lot of emotion. But he's he's a fiery dude right. He's watching Blue Jackets Game Day. And he's almost like wobbling back in his chair because and then David poile against the the edmonson owners. The owners had the big third period the other night I mean I felt bad for Paul at one point. He's like slumped in his chair. They could defeated human being. While the worst part I would think too for these guys. Drags the general managers. It's once it's passed the deadline. There is nothing for them to do. They can't do anymore to improve their team now but you know what he couldn't wipe the smile off. Chuck Fletcher's face just given the way. His team is playing in Philadelphia. And as we record this here Thursday the flyers winning Wednesday night against the Washington capitals again. So that's a seven straight wins the philadelphia flyers. They finished the regular season. Three one against the capitals in. It's not one or two guys in Philadelphia that are doing things the right way and contributing right you know. You've got Kevin Hayes who is a wonderful fit with the flyers vortex a juror who is good Chuck Yell Made Mention of Sean. Couturier doesn't think he gets enough credit for what he does the Philadelphia Flyers Young Travis connect the NFL. He's developing on and on it goes. I am looking forward to Pittsburgh Philadelphia Round one series. All that would be good. Wouldn't it that would be so good? Everything just gets just ramped up so much when those guys play a I guess it would be it literally would be like Calgary and Edmonton would. It would be phenomenal It's funny you know you go through the the guys that you went through and you know you you said Kevin Hayes a great fit and Philly. Isn't it weird? How and I always wondered this when I was playing to. Why is one place a fit and another is not 'cause he was just not a fit in Winnipeg didn't work. They traded a first round pick form. They were hoping he would replicate. What Paul Stassen? He did the year before and he fell flat. It didn't work ended up on the fourth line comes to Philly signs this huge deal and manny's had a fantastic year. They look to him to leadership. And that's certainly not been the case before some history there with Elaine. Venal knows him from the Rangers Jerus- started out couldn't score power play. He ineffective which is really been his bread and butter over his career. Then all of a sudden he started to collect they put drew back on the left wing with. Qatari and bore check and the three veterans have been awesome together and one of the reasons are able to do. That is another guy. You mentioned that Travis. Connect me remember. Though the seasons long connect me held at a training camp. He was one of those are F- guys and Elaine. Venial was not very happy and he made some veiled reference way back then in October or I guess it was October to say or September to say Do You. It would be nice to have guys in here. Learning the system like he was. He was kind of shooting across the bow. Their while connect knee is A. He's a fiery guy and man. He fits the philly makeup a little bit. That's a good team Carter heart is about nine hundred. Oh at home this year. He like he wins every game at home when they called him up. They felt they had the goalie of the year or the goalie of their future. And it looks like they solidified their position there for a long long time. All right we'll wrap up the top five and won a thought on the Washington capitals and the Tampa Bay lightning now. They both seem to be in a bit of a funk. Maybe that's unfair to put Tampa Bay in their. You know their one in five in their last six as we record this but before not they'd want eleven in a row so I think they're doing okay. They bank some off some points in Tampa Bay. What what are you seeing or not? Seeing the Washington capitals six nine one in their last sixteen and a power play in its last nine games. That's like three for twenty five. Those are not washing capitals. Type A numbers. What I see is that you've got a veteran team. That's taken a little bit of a nap. And then they say hey man we gotta get going here. Let's get going and then they found that. Oh you just don't get going again. We do it all the time. Like you take this nap. I'm talking about. It's like five percent of your game right you. Didn't you come off just a little bit and as I said about Vancouver? They're playing just well enough to lose so they lose again. They lose again and then after three or four games the you know the the leadership group or the coaches whatever it is. They're like okay guys. We gotta lock this down here. Let's get going again well as you try to get going. It's harder and harder and harder to catch up to the game again. And then you're in a six nine and one slump and now your power plays not as predictable or is become too predictable. 'cause is are standing around analyzing it. Think of the Washington powerplay when it works because often backstrom they're kinda wheeling all around that one side of the ice. Oh she's in the middle he comes up to the top will now you watch them your little stationery? They're a little predictable. Doesn't take much to lose it. It's a lot harder to get it back. I don't have a great deal of concern about about either of them help. Pittsburgh lost six in a row and scored eight goals in the six games. It's going to happen to everybody and I guess they all hope that by mid month that they're you know they're back on. The beam are interviewed. Bobby Ryan is coming up next and it is presented by our friends at sure health dot CA. You can call them at one. Eight four four two three five shoot..
Keri Roberts - Takeaways from 100+ Voice Technology Podcast Interviews
"So we're joined here today by Kerrie Roberts Caritas a little bit about who you are and what you do thank you dave. I'm so excited to be here so I like to say that I am a brand. I'm a marketer and I'm a community builder So I work for myself and a company called Brandon connection and one of my main clients is voice summit so I help them with their podcasting strategy as well as lead their marketing for their big event. That'll be in October. That's awesome so I've gotten to know Carey. She actually brought me on the inside voice. Podcast that's Sort of like where. Our relationship started and I just think that it's so cool. Because outside of this podcast that she does she has her own podcast. And then I know that she's the host of another podcast. So podcasting is sort of in her life blood and I think that I've learned a lot personally from her. Just the way that she goes about it in post production in the way. That she disseminates podcast. She doesn't really like thoughtful in a meaningful way. And I think that it's incredibly It's a it's a really good way. I think to to build a network and help to connect that network. I know that's kind of a big theme for you and so I'm curious like You know I wanted to bring you on to talk about your experience on the inside voice. Podcast go through some of the different episodes that you've done in the different guests that you've had but like as you've gotten immersed into this world with like so many of us kind of have In you've done it as like being this conduit of Understanding like who people are different. Facets you've actually probably gotten a really wide education you know into the whole voice landscapes on curious like from this first year or so that you've really started to get involved into the space would have been some of your like macro takeaways You know in in things that you've learned since doing this. Yeah well again. Thank you for the kind words I appreciate it. I've been personally podcasting for a little over five years. And I took over the inside voice podcast and leading their strategy and hosting and kind of running it as their form of content marketing and one of the things that Pete Erickson the owner of waste summit that he and I share. Is this love for connection and community and to really showcase the diverse community that we have in voice technology and when I say diverse that means not only male female Or whatever gender you identify as Lgbtq Q Different races different backgrounds but also different elements within voice. So you know it's not just developers or CEO's it's linguists. It's audio engineers. It's voice artists It's startups it's conversational designers. And so my job is to really make sure that we're hitting the gamut as best as possible And I think we're doing that. I think we're doing that. Not only in the podcast that the events that we host And so for me. I personally love hearing what people are passionate about. What makes them great for every episode? I really tried to highlight them as a person first and foremost And then the work that they do within voice and so. I think you know one of the things that I've noticed kind of overdoing that podcast for the last year or so Is that you know first of all. There's so many people involved in voice and that it's important for us to learn the different things that they're doing And so within that also comes the importance of inclusivity with invoice. You know talking to people and saying okay election. Google tend to be a female voice when not everybody wants to hear that or identifies with that or feels comfortable with that You know when you're creating conversations are you including people in how they speak within their culture within their language translation is not always direct word for word. It's also the vernacular and how do we interact with people Are you including people who have disabilities? Who HAVE SPEECH IMPEDIMENTS? You know that I think really thinking about voice in a broader term And really the big question is how do we include the whole world and make them feel leg? They matter and that they can interact with voice. on a global scale. And that's that's not an easy answer but it's great to see that people are doing their due diligence to work on that and I think that's probably the biggest takeaway from the voice standpoint When we're looking at the other side from the consumer standpoint The challenge there is security and this is something I think people have heard about for a long time Of course people talk about well You know your mobile phones already have enough information on you. Are you worrying about Voice But you know there is concern when you're asking people to use their voice for passwords You know how easy is it for somebody to hack into something to take your important information? Your data your privacy and there is a very high level of concern from a consumer standpoint of. How are the big companies doing this? How are Amazon Google and Samsung Keeping the data protected but also every single person. That's doing voice if you are a startup or you own an agency or you're doing it on your own you know how are you proving to your clients and consumers that you're keeping their data and their information safe and it won't get hacked into. Yeah you've touched on a lot of different things there. I think first and foremost it's it's really cool that Because that is something that I've noticed about your podcast is. It's really really diverse and it's just like you said it's not necessarily like just the people but it's also their backgrounds in their interest. Because I think that one of the biggest takeaways that I had when I went to these different shows like I went to the Alexa conference which is now project voice and then I went to voice. Summit Was just a wide variety of different people. Like kind of coming into the space for different things just like you said like people with a linguist background developers designers. So I think it's so cool that it is like this melting pot and I think that the most insightful I think findings that people have come across. Have been when you have like this. Crossover like you have. People that are applying everything that they know in the linguistics world. And then you have the conversational designers that are coming in and when they're all starting to fuse their knowledge together. I think that's where some of the most interesting thing has come about. And you know going off of the point that you made around security and privacy. I think it's really important that this is something. That is a really centric to the whole conversation. Right now I think it's top of mind that a lot of people are realizing that like I think a lot of the people that are attending. These kind of conferences are They share the same sentiments. You know they are concerned about Where's the state of going? What is this data going to be used for? Are we comfortable with sharing the level of this data like I still go back to a the first Alexa conference that I went to where Brian Rahmani was speaking? And my big thing that I kept coming back to like. He kept saying that will need to have these like really deep relationships with voice assistance in order for them to be more impactful So therefore they're going to need a like a deeper level contextual understanding about the user but I feel like that's that runs counter to trust and security so like I'm only going to be able to. I'm only going to be comfortable with sharing the sensitive information that would make my voice assistant In even better assistant if I if I trust all of that so I totally agree with you that I think those are really critical pieces like as the formative period of time while technologies being built so I wanted to Because you've done so many podcasts. In you've brought on so many awesome guests. I thought that what would be kind of fun to do. While you're on here is to go through some of the different episodes that you've done In just go guest by guest in just have you share like either a key takeaway something you learned from that person or just something that you really enjoyed about that person in the conversation are you. Of course I would love to do that. Okay so I know that you shared today on on linked in or twitter. I saw it somewhere about the media people and so. I've had a chance to meet Claire Mitchell and Patrick. So let's start with Patrick. I know that you've done an episode with him. Patrick Gibbons GimMe something from that episode. Yeah I think you know I just WANNA say Intermedia. A lot of people got into voice because of Gary Chalk myself included the sub. Where I I heard about it. And there's so much hype about Gary and he's an amazing person but I think we really want to that. The people on his team are equally as amazing an equally as passionate And Patrick Really he's excited about stuff on the go here bowls a lot of the space that your in specifically And he also Kinda came from an artistic background and I love that he is willing to kind of reach out and say. Hey if you guys have questions like let's collaborate. Let's interact and so it's not just about okay. We're Bainer media and we're going to do our own thing it's like. We WANNA work with everybody and so I love that he kind of mixes his artistic background his ability to connect with others and then his personal passion within boys about how. It's going to be so much more on the go how we're going to be using curable and what that's going to look like
