"So how you take it knowing that this has been something. You've been working on campaigning for ages. Now i mean vegetables. Thank you for me on can share some thoughts and views. It's great to be with both of you You know. I'm big fans of both your work. It's a real honor to be on here but It does what happened last summer. You know it was the realization of the problems that we've been talking about for many many years decades you know in. Shuckers dykes wallet. Back in terms of is what. Show racism. The red card myself. I've been working with campaign. Kick racism out football now known as kick out and guns but this football blacklist together and the black to a major spill around journalism and these conversations have been ongoing around right out week kind of diversify our industry. How do we ensure we see black leaders in our industry and how do we change. Dynamic swiftly and those conversations were incredibly frustrating because that would be a win in the room but it would be a lack of action to follow them So as a result of that we kept on having lots of conversations with barre barre slow progress but what happens in the summer it the game to store to reflect an actually as a community. We'll stood together and said no this is this is not going to continue anymore We cannot sell people treated this way. And we're not going to have this going to stand for. I think the fact that we're ruled on lockdown at the time meant that people were very very focused on this issue and as a result of that It feels like with with moving forward in a in a much more positive direction. in terms of the actions. And i'm you know privy to With the chief executives of lee seung susceptible associations etc and it lonely be judged on the actions. Of course bofill am. I do say this with some kind of kool shen because of twenty years of working on this. But i feel like we're in a place where we can get some real progress made leon as as transformative as twenty twenty has been i. I wanna talk a little bit about the start of couponing of the blacklist. What was you spock. And why kind of given the social challenges of the The last two years you felt the need to do that email as as as you already mentioned it was in and i'm sure you recognize would have been in such a frustrating atmosphere to not. Yeah i mean th th the black this was was born out of you know wanting to do something when type response. I had control over so looking for the kick out. Racism out full. It was a campaign was fantastic. Transitioning into a journalist with the bbc where it was working as a presents when report was great for me as an individual also had freedom to kind of put some actions in place. So i could control and drive myself alongside with my community. So i was as a campaigner meetings with various black people but black people that my friends and family from the black community would never know so when they're talking to me about How did you get get a job in football. And leon how why. Why do we never see any black representation. I said well the dead as many but they are there. So i thought well how do we shine a light on these people to celebrate contribution but also show the next generation of young black men and women. Listen you wanna be a lawyer in football. You can do it because this person has done it. And they're working at this. You want to be working in a major department. You wanna be a doctor. You wanna do all these kinds of jobs. You can't do it because these people have come before you. They all the pioneers that we should be celebrating in a similar way to how we celebrate a pioneering back players in every single position. We should celebrate these people as a way of opening the due to the next generation. Now of course that only works if that comes together with opportunity. Because i can go into community show about look you gamble Look here baltimat- live people arrive adult. It doesn't open Then they'll just turn around and disappearance of industries and just kind of have a relationship with football They will you on the tv or go to gags. So that's the bit. I think we need to work on you. Know in terms of where are the opportunities you know how much what the game is doing to attract retain and develop people bring a different diversity to the game and also not to see as as a charitable act.

Purell Hopes Well Sanitize Long After the Pandemic Ends

"Daily on this friday february fifth. Happy friday everyone. Here's a question. How much hand sanitizer did you use this week. And betting a lot certainly more than you use before the start of the covid nineteen pandemic well. The same probably goes for the number of extra paper towel rolls. Unopened surface cleaners. You have stored in your home. There is no question that the pandemic has changed our buying habits but it's also changed our hygiene hazards including you guessed it. Just how much sanitizer. We use on our hands as you might expect. Sales of pure l. Hand sanitizer jumped six hundred percent in two thousand and twenty no surprise there and go joe industries which makes pure. Al recently made a move. That's a rarity in its sector. They built a new factory and a new warehouse. Now that is an expensive undertaking. Unless of course. There's a payoff which begs the question. Will there be pure l. Says yes there are betting that demand for hand sanitizer will remain high even when the pandemic is eventually in the rear view mirror. Go jos chief. Executive kerry jairus told the wall street journal that the company which previously had one factory in one warehouse wasn't planning to build any more for a decade but then again they also weren't planning for a global pandemic soon pure l. started flying off the shelves and go joe decided to build. That's a risky move. That other companies within demand products aren't ready to make yet clorox which sells disinfecting cleaners hand wipes and hand sanitizers also saw demand grow during the pandemic as did lysol which sells cleaners and yes hand sanitizer but instead of breaking ground on new buildings clorox and lysol looked for other ways to expand and make more products faster. The wall street journal reported that both companies reconfigured existing factories to increase output and they hired third party manufacturers to make more products if the pandemic ends and demand decreases well. They can simply discontinue the third party products and not lose much money if anything. The pandemic has crowded the hand sanitizer market companies like proctor and gamble which did not sell sanitizer previously jumped into action at the beginning of the pandemic and produce their own sanitizer safeguard for consumers. And don't forget the distilleries texas based vodka maker tito's produced more than eleven hundred tons of hand sanitizer between march and december of last year which they gave away to first responders and other critical personnel other distilleries across the country bottled their sanitizers for profit. Which helped him stay afloat. When tours and tastings were cancelled someday someday this pandemic will be over and when that day comes. Procter and gamble will likely return to their diverse portfolio of laundry detergent shampoo and toothpaste.

Rise above the cloud: Amazon's new chief executive

"Thank you for standing by good day. Everyone and welcome to the amazon dot com hugh thousand and twenty financial results yesterday as it does. Every three months amazon held an earnings call it detailed a record quarter. The firm reported more than one hundred billion dollars in sales for the first time then came another disclosure today. We announced our founder and ceo. Jeff jesus will transition to the role of executive chair in the third quarter of this year. Jeff bezos at one time. The richest man in the world will step away from the helm of the company. He founded we'll mostly. I will reiterate that jeff is not leaving. He is getting a new job. He's going to be executive chair of board super important. Rolled order super. His successor will be andy jesse. A twenty year amazon veteran and head of amazon web services the company's enormous cloud computing arm since its founding. Mr bezos has insisted amazon continued to act like a feisty startup and he reiterated his catchphrase in a letter announcing the transition saying it remains day. One in fact it's day nine. Thousand seven hundred or so company has a goodly handful of challenges. That weren't around on day. One were the news. That jeff bezos is stepping back from day to day management. Amazon is a complete surprise. Patrick fouls the economists business affairs editor before the pandemic taken a backseat role. Then he returned to day to day management to deal with the huge surge in business the amazon sore during twenty twenty. He had two successes on the table. One of whom signaled he would leave the company so it was all set up for management transition but the exact timing of that wasn't clear until we've just had an how did amazon whether the the huge surge in business that the challenges that the twenty twenty brought well it's obviously been at the absolute halt of the digital surge. We've seen in the economy in two ways. First of all the e commerce machine. It runs both selling it so in product directly and doing logistics for other firms seen an enormous boom and business but also critically it's cloud thing business is behind a lot of the digital services we've been using from zoom to streaming services on the tv. So it's been absolutely central really to the economists response to the lockdown pandemic. He's about to say that. Mr basis is going out on a high note. I think he is in several ways. I mean you can judge by the financial performance of the company and its valuation which is close to an all time high. I think you can judge it by a also the social contribution. The foams made i mean. It's very controversial business. People were accused of being monopoly of exploiting workers and so on. But i think you can say that over the last year it's also showing that it's really an essential part of many people's lives and i'm sure. Jeff bezos will be thinking about last as he talks his departure but the say threats out there for amazon regulators. Continue to scrutinize it more than ever yesterday. The ftc one of these regulators reached a settlement with amazon for sixty million dollars. It'd been accused of believable more shortchanging drivers over tips and this continual pushback on labor regulation conditions of workers and there's also actually some nascent signs of competition from big firms like walmart which are finally getting their act together on digital. Well you mentioned that regulatory scrutiny which is also been directed at the likes of google and apple mr base is was one of the last founders to still be leading the tech giant he founded. I mean how significant is it to you that he's stepping aside here us right. The big five tech companies in america the have come to dominate its stock market and to some degree. Corners of its economy is now only one founder. Left in the hot seat mark zuckerberg and he's in a very hot seat indeed given facebook's problems so it does feel like it marks. Perhaps in you era when these huge companies have reached a point of dominance and yet some of the big questions that that has created remain unanswered will government. Break them up will. New competitors eventually arise and will be able to keep the same spirit of dynamism the propelled them to the success going for decades to come.

"She stated our shelter actually for just under two believers told the real quickly what happened that she finally somebody did address what was going on. Fbi showed up and yeah so. Alice was actually in slaved in early in dubai so she was trafficked in to dubai. I she's originally from kenya and then from dubai. The family moved here. They had dual citizenship out to the l. a. area moved to west los angeles in one of the most affluent communities there and she was forced to basically work around the clock. She wasn't allowed to sleep very much because she had to be quote unquote on call for the child she was taken care of and interestingly enough she had this amazing relationship with the small child and when she escaped the child was distraught and crying. And i mean. I think that's important to know that for people who ask the question. Why don't they leave. Oftentimes it's out of a loyalty to the children that they're taking care of like. How sad is that that they know. They're being treated wrongly and badly but because they care so much for the traffickers child or children they stay because they feel responsible. That really hits my heart. 'cause i'm dislike like what's happening is this deep exploitation really really good people people you want to live in your community. And so you know with alice. She was enslaved in this penthouse with. I mean just beautiful surroundings and yet. She wasn't to talk with her family. She didn't have access to her passport. That's one of the key things. Traffickers do is confiscate all of their legal documents including for us citizens to our traffic by the way they'll take their identification and for me. It's very symbolic right. It's like when you take someone's identification away. You are truly taking away their identity right. I own you. And so with. Alice in this penthouse. She was practically starved to death when she arrived at the shelter she was skin and bones. I mean i actually remember crying on my way home after meeting her at the shelter because it was like she had marks on her face from lack of nutrition. She was so skinny when it just it was so sad and the truth. She didn't have a whole lot of life in her at that time. And which is very different as you saw from who she is today. How long has she been a slave to this family in this case. Gosh don't quote me on this because we've handle a lot of cases but for alice. I believe that she was enslaved for a total of two and a half years. Total and it ranges. I mean we've had cases where they've been enslaved for you know a couple of months to twenty five years. I mean it really is a big range depending on the opportunity to liberate them right and so analysis case for liberation. She actually match with another nanny. So this family just had another baby and their policy was that they had one nanny for each child and so they were here and the us and so they brought in a nanny who was an american citizen through a nanny service and so she came in and of course she kinda got vibe because all the workers seem to be kind of making eye contact and nervous and so when she was alone with alice and they actually took the kids to a movie at a movie theater..

You get this role, the detached style of leading the country and I don't think from mobile space it. You'RE GONNA change. Now, of course, Lova if the style doesn't change, the government might change has been mortal around this week about a reshuffle and my reading of the. Wounds of this kind of two options. He a one as a mini reshuffle. This September to deal with a very straightforward problem, which is Anne. Marie Trevelyan she's the Secretary of State for International Development, and as we know, defeat is closing down the next few weeks in its mind. The standing that the communist has made it clear. She will stay in the cabinet does a prominent breaks during the Portland ally of Mister Johnson. So this talk of funding new birth to her. A lot of chatter is that she might go to the Ministry of Defence but in his other people who sing saying in fact, the Reshuffle Happen Post Brexit once there's a deal. Once we've got through that early next year there's a feeling I think number ten that they don't want to move too quickly. But then again, they might be forced into a reshuffle if there's more chaos with Mr Williams and went schools reopen or don't reopen in the next couple of weeks. Yes I mean this idea has been around the last couple of days. Speculation. Whether him is going to have to go on the feeling is very much. Let's see if he can get schools back in September if he can pull that off, he lost a little bit longer if he can't, he might have to go quite quickly. But yes, there would be some sort of mini reshuffle what I think the exams u-turn and the chaos of the law few weeks has brought up is recent quite deep dissatisfaction with the way that number ten is. There are lots of backbench MP's you don't very vocal don't make a fuss who privately are worried that they're all cabinet ministers you have been put in their roles as a reward for their loyalty and not for the actual competent. So when you have an issue as we have just had with the A-LEVELS, they don't want someone in there who the prime minister can trust you. He has a good relationship with he's kind of strategic move. And political operated..

Still extraordinary to me that it took that long because we saw what had happened in Scotland something quite similar and having felt that maybe it wasn't as bad it. Really, much that it was, i? Think the public pressure was huge the pressure from agitation experts, universities that grew, but then the thing that really pushed it, I think over the weekend when I was working, that was a real sea change in the mood and suddenly tour MP's willing themselves to stick their heads above the parapet they were going public they were threatening to go on the warpath and at that point, it just became unsustainable for them to continue to hold the line now, pull the question.

So I think one of the things about me that most people probably wouldn't know unless you're. My parents I my first big sale. In my career was actually selling my swing set when I was at like eight or nine years old like down with this for sale. Yeah well, it was really funny, because I was home alone, and my neighbor came driving up our driveway and he knocked on the door. He's like hey or your parents here now. They're not here and I just figured the conversation would end. And we just kind of stood there, and it was awkward for a minute, and he looked over my swing. Say He's like. Oh, it's a really nice swing set, and I look over at it realizing exactly what you just said. That was like well. Do you want to buy it? And he said really I was like yeah, sure I was like I'm not using anymore. Why don't you make me an offer? and He he knocks. I sold for seventy five. Yeah! He's like all right. I'll take it I was like perfect, so he goes driving down the road and my parents see the swings at hanging off the back of his truck near like was that your swing set I was like yeah, I just sold it. Your parents like we spent seven hundred and forty dollars. Exactly, we'll fire nation as I shared during the majority of talking about how to go from chief everything officer to chief executive officer, and we have a lot of grey ground, cover and James actually want to start by talking about the genius paradox. Why do most people get stuck in their business? Yeah, most people get stuck in their business because they're really good at something and most people start a business because you have an idea for a product or a service or whatever it. And you're good at that thing and you start doing more of that thing and you create success, and it's almost like you know those. Chinese handcuffs where you put both of your fingers like. The harder you pull that like the harder it is to get out and I think the better you are at your thing, the more success that you create. And one ends up happening like. If you picture you know a pie at first when you're starting, you're getting to do your thing. Fifty sixty seventy eighty percent of the time and the more success, you create the more other things that you create while you're doing that thing right? You now have more customers. You've bills any to be paid. People that are working for you potentially all these different things so that percentage of the Pie that you're working on your Zona genius, which is the catalyst for growth, start shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and sooner or later. You're like man I'm not even getting to do the thing that I'm good at the thing that I love. The thing that I was so excited about when I first started this. Because there's all this other stuff, so it's almost it's sort of this cruel joke. The better you are, the faster that success happens, and then that creates a whole new set of problems.

"Impact makers headquartered in Richmond Virginia and as a for profit management and technology consulting firm that is committed to contributing one hundred percent of its net profits to the community over the life of the company their community contributions rival companies one hundred times their size due to this revolutionary model as founding beat corporation impact makers has been named best for the world for the past six years as well as listed among the INC. Five thousand fastest growing companies list for the past seven years on today's podcast. I have the pleasure of speaking to chief executive officer Louis Broom. Hi Louis Broom Ceo of impact makers. I'd like to thank my personal. History has really positioned me well for this role. I've worked in industry with twelve years working on Wall Street running leading global. It teams on some pretty interesting projects. So I've been very technical roles I've worked in consulting for a while. This is my second. Ceo POSITION FOR CONSULTING Company. I have experience as an entrepreneur. Both in consulting and food service believe it or not is Baker Chef In College I started a community activists organization trying to make the world or better place. So I really couldn't be happier in this role and I'm very grateful and humbled to have this opportunity so I've been it impact makers for three years and for the last six months. I've really been leaning the organization through a brand refresh and by brand. I mean more than just updating our logo and website. It's really been a about Canada's more focused on how we create value for our clients and being clear on who our clients and why right so beyond this latest strategic imperative on a daily basis Think of my role really enabling and mobilizing the collective wisdom of the organization And the efforts And and how do we really live our brand and tactically? This means in our participate in either of our go to market solutions Help think through how to structure deals and our business development pursuits of course engage with clients to make sure we're exceeding their expectations and ultimately making sure we're focused on supporting our community partners through pro bono work in financial contributions as I mentioned at the top of the episode. Impact makers is a founding B. Corporation a certified B Corporation is a business that meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance public transparency and legal accountability to bounce Prophet and purpose and they're accelerating global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. I asked Louis unpacked for us. More about what? Impact makers does and more about their social mission as a B corporation. So let me tell you about our position ourselves in the marketplace. In how I believe that differentiates us to win in really starts with our mission which is to make lasting impacts in. How do we do? That is by our model for delivering value to our clients We have Very technically strong teams delivering holistic solutions across our core services of cloud data cybersecurity and enterprise agility while at the same time we provide strong consulting services that ensures that the technical solutions were building our line to our clients. Business needs expectations and that the solutions are adopted. Bar Client organizations so that they can actually realize the value of the solutions. We appreciate that. The problems that we're all brought into solve will cost change in our clients organizations and that and that changes heart so to make sure we're able to create this tangible value with our technical solutions. We understand we have to be good it consulting while. All this may not sound revolutionary. Unless you're one of the big four. This is not really easy to do but we do it. It's unusual for firm our size of a little less than one hundred people to make this happen at a price value. That beats the big four all day long but finally a real differentiator is our unique model of being a for profit company. That works as a social enterprise for good in the community. Our clients like this about us but our staff loves this about US and it's what drives so much of our culture and that really brings in top talent. It attracts talent like no other. People want to come work here for our commitment to our community which tends to mean. They are people who are just committed individuals so when they're working with our clients they're working from sort of committed. Dna having a lasting impact. And how that translates for our community partners is their funding is focused on their mission. You know they're operating budget to build out a cloud solution or to build dashboards or to build an analytics platform right. They don't have that kind of funding so when we're able to throw a pro bono work come in and actually allow these organizations to scale work more efficiently. Give them insights or give them capabilities that they really couldn't afford to buy. That is really making an impact them just through our team being able to do what they do. Day In day. Out For our clients. These are four values maximize integrity foster collaboration cared deeply and make a lasting impact. Which is also our tagline and while they're all equally important and powerful we really believe cared deeply and make a lasting impact or quite unique and differentiated and it really is what makes our culture stand out against other companies. I don't know many other companies that would claim that one of their values is care deeply and what that means Saas tactically. Is We care deeply about that? Client success you know we care deeply about other human beings so we kinda just go out our work sort of through that lens so many ways you know having that deep set of values Really I think builds on our culture and really makes us a differentiated place to work with their headquarters in Richmond. Virginia clients across the East Coast in an emerging office in Washington DC. I asked Lewis to describe what truly sets. Impact makers apart from other consulting firms and what kind of associates or consultants truly thrive at impact makers. Yeah in in many ways. I think what really makes us? Different is our ability to be technically proficient while also being good consultants a LOT OF TIMES COMPANIES CONSULTING COMPANIES. Our size tend to be one or the other. We believe that our differentiation is the fact that we're we're bringing in people who understand the art of consulting and they understand how to communicate with clients how to manage their expectations but while also having really strong deep technical expertise on our teams so that we can kind of you know. Solve both pieces of that puzzle. We'll given what we've discussed really safe. Are you know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team? Based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact is really important to them. So this means a couple things Looking for people that want to combine their technical capabilities with an ability to what I call being a true consultant and it means people. He realized the value being a trusted advisers as important as being technically proficient. But there's one other thing that is important for candidates to understand what considering impact makers as a place for the next career and that is do they want to be part of helping to grow company specially companies. That's trying to do something very unique in the marketplace. The work for consultant here is yes delivering for clients working with our community partners to make them better. But it's also. How do you help build impact makers so how do you help us build the internal processes so we can scale And so it's important for candidates to realize that it's about helping to grow the company as much as being a consultant and we realized that this may not be you the place for everybody and that's okay. Lewis also gave us a window into impact makers strategic direction and where they see the company heading and how that also translates into hiring in terms of what kinds of roles. They're looking for in the marketplace so strategically our long-term growth plan is to create. Take the model that we have That were building today and replicate that in other geographical locations Were focused on building out our presence and the DC metro area. We have identified and created relationships with local nonprofits And so we're starting. Do Pro Bono work for them in the DC area so if we were to move into another city like Nashville or somewhere else you know. We want to take our whole package and move that to that geographic location and that includes having pro. Bono partners creating relationships with the community and being connected in with our neighbors. And how do we make that a better place to live right now? Where we're focused strategically is building out those internal processes so we can scale. You know we're looking at how we take our holistic solutions and line them to specific verticals that we work in specifically being healthcare providers healthcare payers the financial services market as well as a look one state governments. We're looking for strong consulting backgrounds for example folks with two plus years working for large consulting company. So they get what it means to be a professional consultant but it also means we're looking for folks who have had a more technically focused role in their pass in but feel they have a strong aptitude for consulting. This could be a clown engineer for example that sees the value in our consultative approach. And they won't be able to make the client better not just deliver technical solution and again this may not be a fit for everyone and that's Ok for my final question. I asked Lewis as I do. All my guest. How will you know if you've heard the right person for the job in the first year? How do you measure success for these roles? A great thing about consulting and how we operate is easy for everyone to see the value. They are creating For instance do clients like working with you. Do they want you to stick around? Because they see the value bring we call this client stickiness. There are also some hard measures for success like utilization which is a measure of how billable someone is as a consultant but there are other ways to measure success in delivering high quality work helping and business development pursuits not having to sell but helping to strategize and develop the materials in these pursuits mentoring. More junior resources And learning development. So that you become more valuable to our clients and we you know in your bill rate can increase so these are some other ways in which you know you can measure success beyond just utilization. You know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact. It's really important that you've been listening to the.

"We have a chief executive way of the military and the all work in concert i understand some sometimes there's deep state activities but in china literally we may have to either to go she with the leaders of china or with the military and china because we have to see him as two separate entities yet look i think americans who deal just with the foreign ministry in china are talking to the wrong people they don't have the slightest idea what the people's liberation army really wants to do so this is a case where you talk to the people who hold power and you say look here our interest we don't want north korea with nuclear weapons we think the way to achieve that is to merge the two koreas it's an unnatural division put the koreans back together what you get from us is we will not put american troops on the allah river the chinese saw that movie and 1950 they didn't like it then they don't like it now let's find we don't want to be on the allah river i endorse president trump i support his campaign which you of liked and would you still like a position on the administration well you know i tried out at the beginning of the administration and somehow or another i didn't make it but that look it's an honor to serve our country and and so if faster per couple positions that i would take not not very many but a couple i would take and if the call comes i would do the threat could he makes you cia chief chief negotiator with north korea outlook would define it wouldn't take longley ali negociation i do with north korea's the terms of their surrender i ambassador bolton such a pledge so good to be quite a rainmaker for that well sucked you're you're you're doing your work thank you so much were live at sepak 2018 and you're listening zone so men if you're like me you.

"How does that fit versus this kind of organisation where do those companies excel and what is this house about the nature of how companies develop their leaders well guess one thing you can obvious he say is that the company on general electric but currently named its next chief executive last week at the same point that to that travis kalanick that he was going to go on indefinite leave has had a hundred and twentyfive years to develop this very careful and meticulous system of leadership a training and development and the eight years will say that oba has had is barely enough to cultivate a nextgeneration let alone a whole pipeline says that aspect but i think it was striking to me that in the reports that was done looking into the problems it over the report very clearly pointed out that one of the things that they had to put in place was mandatory leadership training and including some pretty basic things like how to effectively set organisational goals which he would think was a one on one leadership training there is clearly something the missing and again the scale and sony's of the ever short period means that they haven't been able to do those types of things that that g unilever of the big multinationals do as a matter of course so there agassi two different aspects of this on the one hand startups which are led by founders on the other big organizations which are very abetted with this process what can one limb from the other what can a start up that scales ray quickly what might it learn from a big stabbed him as a figure in his asians that consistently develop over time leaders after leaders after leaders well i think one thing that they can learn very clearly is that there is some value in developing internal succession andy could argue that in the latter stages of steve jobs.

"Entirely gone a he is on the board he is a major shareholder and therefore he remains an important influence over what happens to the next that two schools of thought one is that his removal as chief executive will make it easier to recruit the multitude of senior positions that are vacant another though is that if he's still on the board that will cast a long shadow over anyone else who comes to run the company me what's your view about that idea of the founder who so to temic for normalisation becoming a board member and still therefore remaining a very strong voice at the company well i suppose difficulty here is that it's a private come late hasn't gone to list yet lots of people thought but when or if it gets to be and to be an ipo candidates events kalanick would not be the person who needed to run it so that this might be inevitable staff at some point in the future what's very difficult to tell us is whether the border has the sufficient power to iranian kalanick it's taken a long time when you think of the building controversies and ending in scandal and investigation and so on is taken a long time to take this step and meant to me indicates that this was aboard obviously dominated by invest a pressure which until relatively recently was weighing up the huge value that he created this company against the risk of losing him all the risk of keeping him so i think in some cases it's not a conventional board structure of the type b find that a list of come they way it say there will be independent directors who consignia in different ways and what they think of the chief executive.
