"Welcome to the tank blood writer podcast, your guy to future, Tech, Trends and innovation in a language. You understand now. Over to your host, Neal Hughes could buy to be tech flawed Reuter podcast, you may remember a few days ago. We spoke to the guys at sit tricks about much much more than just networking virtualization. So today I wanted to carry on that same with my friends at hate seal. Technologies who what doing some incredible work and regular listeners will not spoken to them in the past about their work with Manchester annoyed or should I say, the digital transformation of Manchester United, and then I also spite with him a gain at the adobe conference where we talked about how organizations countries and businesses can adapt to the human centered digital transformation, and after those conversations are thought on new there was to know about their talents and experts, but then I know that they also have a huge involvement in cybersecurity. And I'm not sure why I was. Prized by that because the digital transformation of everything should have cyber security at the hall of shouldn't it so today I in for Ed Menendez sing corporate vice president of cybersecurity services. I hate CO technologies onto the podcast to and join me, and he has over twenty five years of experience in the IT industry. Having played various roles in business development sales, product management service delivery and program management to name just a few areas where he's excelled. But today, I invite him on the show to talk about hate CEOs cybersecurity fusion center, which is about to open in Frisco, Texas, and how the opening represents the next phase in the company's mission to support secure business growth by providing that customers with a single point of contact for complete secure instant life cycle support. And that's from everything from detection to remediation so bookl- up and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to Texas. So we can speak with indecision corporate. Vice president of cybersecurity services at hate CO technologies. So massive warm. Welcome to the show in day. Kenny tell that listen is a little about who you are. And what you do. Thank you need. Hello everyone. My name is Melinda. And I'm with you for almost about twenty four years, and I've heard various leadership roles globally. I'm pretty passionate about technology and technology that services and currently I lead cybersecurity and GMC business for the practice globally. Aquatic saw to get you on today because I've spoken with guys that hate Sione number of occasions, which is the digital transformation of Manchester at but recently had about your saw secure launch which hazing crediting treating to me sick. He told me a little bit more about this, actually, Laura people. Probably don't know we are about a twenty year old practice with the very solid experience globally via founded in nineteen Ninety-seven pretty much in the early days of the internet and the practice practices blown multiple across infrastructure, cloud, identity management, risk and compliance data. The security application security an late in security of things or IOT as people call it. We provide a t sixty degree life cycle services to our first, including strategy now contextual consulting system integration and manage of operational support to customers what we're doing with. This launch is creating an expert or cybersecurity fusion centers, globally and the latest launches in Frisco in Texas in the United States. The cybersecurity vision centers actually integrate human expertise and mature sort of processes using an advanced Blackcomb solution with fair, but of analytic capability and intelligence integrated together that helps you orchestra orchestrate response to any cyberthreat proactively defend yourself, essentially, it solves the problem of Tyler approach which many organizations have on security today into an integrated approach providing you pump. Defense for your infrastructure beach or network workplace mobile application or identity issues. So we are solving that problem of unified approach to taking a washer against cybersecurity threats today that exists in the planet now as a former or not. It was obviously cautious by nature often. Struck by how many businesses evolving headfirst into the digital transformation of everything? But they do forget about protecting everything they've created. So I've got to ask I mean from your point of view are the best practices in protecting technology to combat secure risks that the way would point me actually actually organizations in their need for a period. Vegetal information are not imbedding security back best practices in their platform, system, development, life cycle or for that matter. Qualifying even the data that they need to acquire some of the best practices that are extremely important. My point of view is very clear definition of data and area data being requested from customer in humor clear definition of who got access to it. Why here here's you here got access to where and how being stored and when you're actually transmitting data if you're really in and. Protecting the privacy information of offer data set. Right. I think awareness of impact on security, and I believe that security largely fifty percent, awareness, education and culture issue

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future, Tech, Trends and innovation in a language. You understand now. Over to your host, Neal Hughes, come back to the tech blog Reuter podcast. How you doing? Not maybe it's because I'm a man of an age. But one thing I love about recording. The daily tech podcast is a conversation can be recorded an and all over the world, and we can share ideas and insights on that conversation, and I also get to receive messages like this from Muhammad, Allah, moody, he said, I hope this Email find you well meal, I'm writing the Email from Saudi Arabia to reflect my appreciation for an excellent podcast show. In fact, all the words of appreciation in the universe will never reflect my gratitude, and he goes on to say that he's a senior consultant geologist, but has a passionate interest in both data and technology development, and he's very kindly shared links to this podcast with a number of his friends and colleagues or within his area of contact. He says your podcast is fantastic. Please keep continuing. And if I have the right asked for anything else. It would be a more details about the technologies that are developed. Muhammad. Thank you, so much, my friend for your message as a listener or no people seldom feel compelled to Email or write to a radio presenter or podcast host as it's passive entertainment. So I genuinely thank you for sending that in. And also, I'm going to take your comments on board an explore how we can start including some extra details about the technologies being developed. Speaking of which I've got a fantastic guest. Today waiting for his age in Austin, Texas, and a company called Penser systems, which is an Austin based startup that's about to announce a solution to address one of the biggest and costliest problems in retail, which is a lack of consistent on shelf inventory visibility. Probably something that many people listening don't automatically think of. But this problem is costing retailers and CPG brands one trillion dollars per year. So Pensa system is a breakthrough in uses. Artificial intelligence autonomous draw. Owns and computer vision to see an understand and analyze exactly what is on store shelves and the payoff brands and retailers will be able to minimize those stock outs an optimized product planning and boost their revenues now only Charles with major consumer packaged goods and retailers up shown more than ninety eight percent in accuracy. So we're not just talking about big technology here which talking high accuracy and a lower cost than other approaches, and this company has been operating in stealth. But as always my Spidey senses pick something up. So I managed to track them down and get them onto the show today. So book elope and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to Austin, Texas. So we can speak with Richard Schwartz that CEO of Penser systems. Massive warm. Welcome to the show, Richard. And congratulations on loot. Your technology last week the national retail federation conference. I mean, what exactly did you launch? Yeah. First of all, thank you, Neil. We have been in stealth mode for awhile we'd had a website. But hasn't really said what we were doing and last week at NRA out together with Intel or partner, we actually showed our first public demonstration of what we're up to we've been quietly working on store pilots and so forth with retailers and brands but nothing publicly so this is real first public debut for the company. Wow. Did you go to would imagine that you turn quite a few heads event? That's exactly right. You can imagine that the Intel booth is one of the largest boosters show. It's all glass specifically designed to be really high and what we were doing among other things with flying an autonomous drone, right? So yes, it did attract a lot of attention. I think it was one of the most highly traffic boost of the show so in that respect. Yes. That six I'd like you say you were installed. He made his pick announcement. He just tell me more about exactly what was announced over that. First of all, maybe taking a step back and tell you what the problem is that we saw in. What did we announce the solution for and that sort of led to the interest? Right. So so what we're all about is dealing with the problem of in retail supply chain of how do you know, what's on the? Shelf to sell. How do you know what's on the shelf to sell and how do you reduce stock outs? When people want to buy it. It's actually there. And it turns out that's a really big problem both for the retailers as well as the brand's. I mean, something like I dunno one out of every ten one out of every eight products are literally not on the shelf and available for sale, which you can imagine the problem all around. So what we announced and what we showed live for the first time at an raff is a system to solve that to automate that. And the front end of that. So the two pieces the front end of that is a small Thomas drone. Doesn't do most of the work, but has a small camera and is able to come down and sort of peer it the the products on on shelves in an aisle. And then back end not on a drone is artificial intelligence to kind of process that and recognize the products on the shelf down to the individual item level and also automatically how the shows are organized, and we actually did live demonstrations of that. And we we talked about the store pilots of what we're doing with retailers brands, and that sort of thing and that was live for the first time. So for anyone else on to the retail spice, how much it was going to be people in that room that we've blown away when you made the announcement. But just everyone listening how is it different from how brands and retailers currently managed that install inventory. Yeah. Good question. So this issue of what's. Actually on the shelf is a giant black hole. It's about a trillion dollar black hole for a huge industry of of retail goods. Right. And and a lot of the supply chain. You know, what happens in warehouses and distribution centers and so forth. All that is is pretty well automated. You know, you go to retail store, and and you know, there's the automatic point of sale for checkout. Right. And there's ERP for figuring out what's coming in the back, but very largely the process for for the retailers in the brands, and what's on the shelf is is people walking around. It's eyeballs literally people walking around check check the shelves and the the brands, you know, the the large consumer packaged goods Brad's people like. That they send in spotters literally, a whole armies of people that go into sort of look at the shelves

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future, Tech, Trends and innovation in a language. You understand now. Over to your host, Neal Hughes, come back to the tech blow Royer podcast, first of all. I wanted to. Thank you all for your patience. I've had a few problems over the last fifty episodes or so where my blue yeti bit dose and switching to the higher payoff, forty of unavo- Casse rights scholar interface provided me with a few learning curves. But when recording seven podcasts a week he can be difficult to learn quickly. So a big thank you for sticking with me. And I think we've finally got the sound masted just to throw something else into the mix. I'm also currently decorate immoral Alofi switch. Let's be honest. It's basically just small swear rube in my house. But when he's also I'm going to let you see a little bit more about what goes on behind the scenes, and I think I've been bitten by the whole new year planning thing. So in January I wanted to. Start the new year with a new recording environment redecorate at office revamped website and fondly open up an Instagram account just for tech blog, ROY. So you could see what goes on behind the scenes, and if I can get a thousand of you, I might just stop hiding behind this microphone and speak to you all each day, for instance, stories on video, so thank you for sticking with the show and rest assured, I'm planning on improving things with the show and beyond. There's I take serving you more loyal audience quite seriously. But this show is not about me. It's about my plans. It's Butch Butch bigger than that. It's about how technology is transforming multiple industries and making life easier for to do business and even improve our lifestyle too. And today, I wanna learn more about company called Jane dot A, which is an artificial intelligence platform that makes all of your company's information accessible through chap, essentially, Jane learns from all the information is. Currently scattered across your cloud base opera. -cations your documents. You'll websites makes all that information accessible to us as existing communication systems. Let's say to slack SMS web or Email and Jane also understands conversational English inquiries and provides a response within seconds. And if there was an inquiry that is asked Jane doesn't know she'll rooty to a co pot who will work at the company for a response continuously building a knowledge base of all of a company's tribal knowledge, and anyone that's worked an organization and just wants to get their hand on a simple piece of information and find the whole process incredibly compasses funnest. One core. Interesting so book elope and hold on tight as IB meal is all the way to Saint Louis. So we can speak with David Karen dish foam, Janai, it's gonna tell us how these offficial intelligence platform. It can make all of your company's intelligence accessible. Through chat. So massive warm. Welcome to the show. Can you tell the listeners about who you are? And what you do David Koran. No and couponer Jane dot A, I Zine is an enterprise artificial intelligence platform that helps you do your best work testing. Now when I was doing the research on you guys, I quickly learned that Jane is an artificial intelligence platform that makes all of anybody's companies information accessible through chat. I mean, it's a great concept, but he just helped people listening visualize exactly what Jane is. And what makes it unique from other solutions out there way to think about what we're doing? Is we help company make their intelligence accessible by connecting to the three major sources of company and tell your company's apps, your company's documents and the knowledge base of your team, and you can ask Jane questions like how many vacation days do I have or what's my sales pipeline or you could ask your questions out of your documents around training materials or on boarding or. You could ask questions like who the expert in GDP arc implants, the basic idea that all your company Intel exists in that document or someone's head and Jane is the first platform for the workplace that makes that accessible through whatever chat interface you like, but she could work with flack or Skype. You can put Jane on your internet. You can connect her to your company's Email provider anywhere where you would wanna ask a question. She there live what you guys doing with. And how empowering police access that companies intelligence, but one of most about it is you stewing in the simplest way possible. Just you mentioned slack a few moments ago. So can you told me through how it works through a conversational interface such as slack? And how it makes company information more accessible by actually integrating with that and Monning until full docks. Every company has to scuttle across the network. Yes. So the way to think about it is that companies are moving more and more of their apps, the cloud, whether it's your Email calendar HRIS, the Iran ticketing platform or your club drives. And so we built it bunch of connectors that can connect to those systems. So that when you ask Jean question, her, natural, language processing will interpret that question. And then figure out with those API's to go call to give you back an answer and to do that in about recessions. So the ideas that we wanna make all your Intel acceptable cross all your at the second second area, though are your documents where you got information on your handbook or your sales training material. We're working with one company that when they bring on a new team member they have to read it two hundred thirty seven page manual, and you know, it's like not exactly a beach read in terms of accessibility. And so those team members have questions on I that are listed in that document. They can come back a day later or week later or year later after this question, Jane, and she'll give an instant response. So do you have any examples of how helped you'll customers

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future, Tech, Trends and innovation in a language. You understand now. Over to your host, Neal Hughes, come back to the tech. Log ride a podcast win racing through two thousand eighteen now has it been a good year for you, not as good year, toys you? But I'll have you met all of your goals. Or would you be carrying a few over to next year? Why am I ask you what I want to try and get to know you all little bit better. Because everyday I'll say my chair here in a room talking into a microphone on my own. I'm thinking he's kinda strange intimate connection. We've kind of developed here where talking directly into your ears now don't want to be that crazy rambling on and on in the corner completely on his own. So I look for you to get into to remain and tell me why you listen to this show what your daily routine looks like and indeed anything at all. But while I'm waiting for those messages, I wanted to do she to Allio which is an technique. Edgy company, he's transforming recruiting through intelligent automation. They are series a startup backed by investors. Google Bain capital benches, serving ventures and ran start innovation from essentially Elliott is an recruit to that utilizes not natural language processing and machine learning to automate and self optimize the end to end recruiting workflow that was certainly enough to get my attention so book and hold on tight as I beam your ears all the way to San Francisco, so we can speak weighed Suheil Sony, co-founder Ennio. So massive world. Welcome to the show K tell the listeners about who you are. And what you do. Absolutely. Thank you so much for having me on this show. Well, let me let me talk on the personal friend, and then I can tell you about what I do. I I live in the US I immigrated here from India, and I'm being here for on twenty is and I reside with my wife, and so can Vati and then on what I do. I'm the co founder of Allio, which is a high growth startup in recruiting technology. And now, we are I think now enough full otehr prior to this. I had a job in management consulting with McKinsey and company before that I had another startup which was also you quickly fun. And prior to that I got my PHD in engineering, which is what brought me to the US in the first place. Fantastic. Now, full no research on you guys. I quickly discovered. The Elliott is an end to end aaagh recruiter that makes your recruiting delightful. Deficient with intelligent, automated and conversational engagement fear. Texting? So I've got to ask what is the role of artificial intelligence, and what advantages does it help you offer the recruiting solutions outlined you've done. Good research. I think that's a fantastic summary. In fact, I think it took us it took us several months summaries. Thanks for doing that Tago research. I think I think two roles to do advantages.

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future, Tech, Trends and innovation in a language. You understand now. Over to your host, Neal Hughes, come back to the tech. Log ride a podcast win racing through two thousand eighteen now has it been a good year for you, not as good year, toys you? But I'll have you met all of your goals. Or would you be carrying a few over to next year? Why am I ask you what I want to try and get to know you all little bit better. Because everyday I'll say my chair here in a room talking into a microphone on my own. I'm thinking he's kinda strange intimate connection. We've kind of developed here where talking directly into your ears now don't want to be that crazy rambling on and on in the corner completely on his own. So I look for you to get into to remain and tell me why you listen to this show what your daily routine looks like and indeed anything at all. But while I'm waiting for those messages, I wanted to do she to Allio which is an technique. Edgy company, he's transforming recruiting through intelligent automation. They are series a startup backed by investors. Google Bain capital benches, serving ventures and ran start innovation from essentially Elliott is an recruit to that utilizes not natural language processing and machine learning to automate and self optimize the end to end recruiting workflow that was certainly enough to get my attention so book and hold on tight as I beam your ears all the way to San Francisco, so we can speak weighed Suheil Sony, co-founder Ennio. So massive world. Welcome to the show K tell the listeners about who you are. And what you do. Absolutely. Thank you so much for having me on this show. Well, let me let me talk on the personal friend, and then I can tell you about what I do. I I live in the US I immigrated here from India, and I'm being here for on twenty is and I reside with my wife, and so can Vati and then on what I do. I'm the co founder of Allio, which is a high growth startup in recruiting technology. And now, we are I think now enough full otehr prior to this. I had a job in management consulting with McKinsey and company before that I had another startup which was also you quickly fun. And prior to that I got my PHD in engineering, which is what brought me to the US in the first place. Fantastic. Now, full no research on you guys. I quickly discovered. The Elliott is an end to end aaagh recruiter that makes your recruiting delightful. Deficient with intelligent, automated and conversational engagement fear. Texting? So I've got to ask what is the role of artificial intelligence, and what advantages does it help you offer the recruiting solutions outlined you've done. Good research. I think that's a fantastic summary. In fact, I think it took us it took us several months summaries. Thanks for doing that Tago research. I think I think two roles to do advantages. So for for a one is it makes it more conversational and second of the feedback in the morning writes, a traditional software has offered primarily just automation.

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, you'll guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in a language you understand now over to your host, Neal, Hughes, welcome back to the tech blow Greider podcast and a huge. Thank you to you. Guys have left right in and reviews over on our chains. I'm convinced is a big reason why an additional twelve thousand people joined us in September. And today's review is from somebody called action read, and he says is the author of several books. I've been interviewed numerous times is simply a pleasure to be interviewed by a small inciteful, enthusiastic journalists, like new me. Maybe it's got me confused with somebody else. He asked me great questions, and there was an instant connection more conversation than an interview listening to his other podcasts. I can tell he is consistent in his talent and enthusiasm when it's a good job. I've got a great face for radio because I'm blushing a little bit there. So I hope that one was meant for me and it wasn't. Review another podcast. So thank you for leaving that review, but rather than to sit here and squirm we'd better get on with today's show. Now, as you know on passionate about how technology is transforming multiple industries and forcing everybody to think differently. And I want everyone listening to this show to stop saying phrases like, where is what it is. We are where we all if you hear anyone, say those phrases give him a little tap on the back of the head snap out of it because I think we need to start exploring the art of the possible. And this is why I invited Rick Burnett onto the show today, and he's the CEO and founder of lane access. Now I don't want to reveal too many spoilers, but lane access is basically virtual freight management system that seeks to disrupt the shipping industry by removing middlemen and inefficiencies directly connecting shippers and carriers via proprietary blockchain network. So essentially, rather than accepting inefficiencies, maybe the trucking industry could move away from out. Detect fraught with pay patrols long, wait times and numerous middlemen, and actually take advantage of independent truckers intrigued a hope you all because I am so book alot and hold until I as I beam your ears all the way to California. So we can speak with Rick Burnett CEO and founder of line axis. So massive, warm, welcome to the show. Can you tell the listeners a little about who you are and what you do. My name is Rick Burnett, and I'm the CEO and founder of lane access which we focus on the supply chain industry on a global scale, looking to build a direct network between shipper manufacturer, people that need to move product directly to carrier transportation, trucking company down to track it down to the driver level and pushing all this functionality into the blockchain. So like you say, he's a fright management system that seeks to disrupt the shipping industry Dr rightly connecting shipper and carrier via proprietary blockchain network. But can you just set the scene and tell the listeners a little bit more about exactly what it as and what problems do you set out to solve? 'cause it's gonna be some people that are not in that particular industry and on a where the kind of problems and all the middlemen that are involved. Yes, so great question. Supply chain affects all of us that are listening to this because this is the actual food that we eat. The products clothes that you wear various different products that you. Us consume on a day-to-day basis. And so today it's entrenched in labor processes, voting vaccine paperwork. A lot of people wouldn't realize that over ninety percent of all the movements on a global scale, rely on this type of of phoney back seen in and antiquated outdated systems. A lot of big corporations do have tracking on the internal systems, but anytime they move outside their network, which is a large time on a day-to-day basis, they lose that visibility. So what lane access is focused on is really three legged stool one, one of the legs being a proprietary blockchain. So standardizing the transportation movement, which is moving product from point eight point be we're tracking that in real time pushing the subsets of the contract insurance verification and the blockchain. The GOP is location of the pickup and the delivery in the blockchain, and then all electric documentation that's verified inside the blockchain. Parallel with be the second stool would be building the actual driver network, the individual. Let's call it Facebook for truckers. The socialization piece that these millions of drivers on a global scale can interact socialize exchange information, and then utilizing the token inside the network gain rewards system, if you will, for the various different products that they use inside. It's very, super truck stops on a global scale, you know, rebates on gas, you know, consumption of products, food shower, all the bears, different things they they utilize. And then third would be the integration subsets because there's a myriad of different integration points that you know shippers manufacturers use. So we're going to standardize that. So it's very easy and within a few seconds, be able to click and Tinder loads into the system and drill directly

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in a language you understand now over to your host, Neal Hughes, I'll come back to the tech blow Greider podcast. Quick question for you. Do you believe in coincidence? The reason I asked is I'm not as quite a few strange occurrences recently, for example, I'll let you into a little secret. There is no master plan of how I select sheds a guest everyday only daily podcasts because I kind of looked the randomness of all in the mix of guests that it provides. So I simply okra my calendar and let people Booker slot. If I find this story. Interesting. I've no is despite doing this. I seem to get a run of similar industries or guess like so weeks. For example, I can have a ruin cybersecurity of his ally or this machine learning another weeks. Crypto just seem to fall that way. Maybe just maybe it's the universe point in the right direction to adult structure. A narrative enough with random sorts, lack of focus and self editing. Let's get on with today's show. Now you may remember a few days ago I spoke to Tara Kelley from splice software, but the dangers of handing over the keys to your brand's voice to digital voice assistance, which is Amazon, Alexa marks of Khotan apple, Siri, Google home, and the list goes on and on. So with voice big, a very hot topic at the moment. I wanted to explore it further. So when I read rand, Hindi from snips wanted to destroy Alexa. He well pretty much truly grub by attention and set my tech Spidey senses into overdrive. If you've ever turn to a voice assistant to ask you a quick question for a little help, and let's face it who hasn't a strongly urge you to listen to run conversation when we today he offers so many invaluable insights. And as far as I'm concerned, pure gold. So book elope and hold on tight as I beam your ears all the way to Paris in France. So we. Weighed rant Hindy from snips Aor. So massive world, welcome to the show runs. Can you tell the listeners who you are and what you do? Hi, thanks for having me. My name is rent. I'm the CEO snips of AI to give you a little bit of backgrounds. I've been coding since I was ten years olds created my first company when it was fourteen and it up doing a PHD in artificial intelligence when I was twenty one. Then after that decided to really focus on the intersection of a privacy, how can you start building machine learning technologies that don't really require access to personal data that was an advisor to French governments under a policies. And for the past five years, I've been running the largest company in France, go sips building voice assistance with a very strong focus on personal data privacy. Wow. Coating from ten years old. Take tech was in your family from an early age interests. Fittingly enough? No, my mom was in fashion and my dad was currency economists. Wow, complete opposites. Now, one of the main reasons on volume on the show today and why I'm excited to speak to you is because you believe that we need to make technology disappear and for it to be invisible. And when I saw this awful last because the average user, this is probably to the shaker of a lot of techies out there, but the efforts used it doesn't care about how blockchain or ally works. They just want to make life easier. That's that only motivation. So before we get to techy, can you just tell me a little bit about the inspiration behind snips and what you set out to achieve from the very beginning like already felt, for example, your phone, vibrating your pockets, you know, took it out and there was nothing happening during. Yeah. So this is something that school offense on vibration, what people would realize nine out of ten people experienced that Gino another name for it? No, I listen Asian. But you see like that for me is pretty scary because when you think about it, we somehow got so conditioned by technology that we're now making things that don't exist. And so when you pull that thread and starts, extrapolating with a world will look like once you have one hundred billion devices as opposed to, you know, just a smartphone in a computer each today. It becomes a pretty scary picture. Are we going to get to a point where we're so manipulated by devices around us that we spend our days effectively making up stuff because we're just receiving too much input. And so I see a an assistance is a very good solution to the problem because you could start communicating with machines as effortlessly as you do with humans using language, for example, then you no longer need to make any efforts to use technology to a point where it becomes like illiteracy, everything around you is a device, everything. Around us connected, but you don't even think about it anymore. And because of that, you don't have the sort of feeling of being overwhelmed technology. And literally what I believe is that a assistance issue include them in every device around you can literally make disappear from our consciousness. Wow. On your website as well. We chose just looking, I if we highlights how we got where we all today on how lock you sit there, technologies become a central. Paul of our modern lives. Civil that lives TV shows like black mirror and maybe the darker side of tech. Can you tell that story to listeners and also dark aside as emerged as a result and ultimately, why? Oh, go was initially to destroy Alexa sounds incredibly sinister accelerated at the same time. Well, the thing with technology is not just that it should be extremely easy to use is that he should also be very safe to use the problem however, is that most of the companies today that were created back in the nineties on the wrong mindset are on data privacy back in one thousand nine hundred. You were not really producing that much personal data. Now, thinking about it, I'm on had a bit of data. You'll had a bit of data, but really someone accessed it was no big deal. I wouldn't really give them much of a picture. We are, however, the more. More personal data in the more connected, we became the more those companies started collecting data about us in creating an accurate profile. You know, think about a little bit like a puzzle in the beginning, a few pieces in you don't really know what puzzle is supposed to represent, but the more pieces fly into the puzzle, the more accurate that picture becomes it's exactly the same team, your personal data, every piece of data as a piece of the puzzle is just creating more complete profile. And today those companies have so much data about us. They know so much about who we are, that a breach of privacy, they get hacked or if you, you know, asking for government, the breach of privacy fury life, and the consequences are enormous. But it even goes further. People can use this to manipulate you because he finally everything about who you are. I know exactly what I should tell you to make you believe something different. This is what happened with Trump. Encounter with Toco. So for me to question of personal data, privacy is not about hiding stuff is fundamentally about preventing master Valence mass hacking mass manipulation, and that's in the end, is about giving people more freedom. So when I say I want to destroy Alexa, what really mean is that I want to destroy this old mindsets around personal data privacy and show that you can create alternative where personal data is no longer the central piece of the puzzle. But the product itself becomes a central piece of the puzzle. Somebody gripe points rice to house Wade. I think it was Tara Kelley foam splice off Wei as today. It was also talking about voice being the most natural interface in the world, but equally stunning a huge warning about how brand voice or any businesses brand voice needs to be human. But what many businesses are doing, they're actually delivering that brand voice through series voice through Google or Alexa, and actually the handing. Over the entire brand voice. That's dangerous too. Isn't it? Absolutely. There's a reason why doesn't American giant companies in Chinese, not by the way are so bullish on voice because voice assistant captures both the input any outlets. So you're basically intimidating every single service that someone would use someone wants to purchase in groceries using voice, you know exactly what they're buying. You can control where the bite from and don't be fooled the reason why Amazon is pushing Alexa so much. It's not because you're hoping to help you solve problems with voice. It's because they wanna use Alexa as a massive data aggregate her and intermediation platform so that they can no everything people are doing and use this to sell more stuff to you. That's it. I'm as business would. Alexa is not to help you is to target you. It's to aggregate data about your personal life and as a company, if you're using Alexa. Drew giving Amazon the keys to your users and to your business. True. This data, Amazon, Amazon dot com has ninety brands that they've created. Do you know how pickets not just look at what works? If don't you think they're going to do the same Alexa apps that people built for it come on. Absolutely. Interesting times ahead is so important that we discussed this now because I think so many people who is completely oblivious and filling their homes with these, which I was sexually Trojan horses on. Well, pretty much is not that they're oblivious. I think everybody knows that privacy's initiate. It's just that didn't really have a choice. And let's be clear, you know, it's always gonna, be convenience over privacy. The goal here is not to offer lesser product protects

So I had to get him on today and bliss perspective as always been that brands deserve accurate data and verifiable data that creates a high standard in the quality of a used and subsequent insights and analyst call reporting SAM's.

Internxt (INXT) X Cloud - Decentralized Cloud Storage Service

"I want to explore the world of crypto and blockchain with a company called internet based. The company first appeared on my radar. After I discovered that they are disrupting industries through the use of revolutionary technology. They are creating a range of innovative products and services that strives to substitute those already currently massively adopted. So it was a pretty big brave move. For example, I service ex- cloud is a distributed, highly secure cloud storage service, which is hoping to compete with services such as dropbox, Google or I cloud. And most interesting of all is Fran as France cigar at founder and CEO east to twenty one years old. He's a young entrepreneur who before starting internet's worked to hosting international studies, own web hosting company. He's also part of the next web's t. five hundred which holler at the most talented young entrepreneurs in the digital saying. So book loop and hold on tight. As I beam your is all the way to Spain, so we can speak. We've Fran villa Bassa Gara, founder and CEO of internet. So massive, warm, welcome to the show friend. Can you tell the listeners a little about who you are and what you do? Sure. Yes. I'm Fran. I'm the founder and CEO Vince next next weeklies ovation company and we will talk about it in enough minutes. I guess. But yeah, I'm, I'm twenty one. I love interpenetrate love you technology. Now, when I was researching Yugo is you hooked me in with your Tagoloan technologies to enhance life into next is transforming the way people live through revolutionary technology. So you hope me straight away with that tackle on. But I mean, can you just set the scene and paint a picture for listeners and help them visualize exactly what kind of problems do you actually solve x. cloud is, yes. So internet, these any no company. And we strive to do many different things that took to revolutionize different in the different industries. So right now we're doing that in the car industry and office product is called x. explode and that's a decentralized more security perversion of I cloud on Google Drive. So right now we are disrupting the car in this really said about in the future. We strive to do the same thing in other industries, so kind of what I'm Joan apple are doing. So they're not also, for example, Amazonas only online shoulder, you know, you know innovating in many other industries as well. So. What always five to next. So I've got to ask as well, where does the next token into all this? How does that work. Yeah. So the token dean, thanks so can. So how it works is we've x. cloud, our first product people by by the service is doing tokens or in dollars and either biting tokens, these gets paid hosts. So people hosting the files are the ones getting painting tokens. I think they biting dollars what we always those dollars. We buy tokens. So virtually especially the same as if they were paying told lake integrion's directly. But we don't want to force people to pay tokens because he may be I, if you want to try must adoption, I think in a people may not use it because of that. So so, yeah. So basically either directly or indirectly people paying tokens and with those though because we pay hosts and that's how it took advice works. So when I first discovered you guys straightaway, I'm thinking of other disruptive services outlasts which is stores and say, get x. cloud better or different from those solutions, right? Yes. So these two companies, I think they have their targeting different kind of customers. So the target audience is completely different. So if you want to use store j or Siah there, you have to be either developer or feel comfortable with of developer environmentally user experience. I would say so, whereas we getting any kind of customers as we targeting the mass market. So we talk, we in corporations, we targeting startups tolerating. I don't know anyone, basically individuals who who not necessarily need to know how to develop for how to how to code. So yeah. So in terms of marketing, like the two companies are in basically in any marketing, we are focusing in marketing or our efforts are in in marketing an in building, a very beautiful user experience, which is superseded Poland, super beautiful, and I don't know an as good as that of our Google Drive. So yes. So basically we're competing with Google Drive right cloud, not really with stores your sale because of the target audience we have. So how we describe ourselves is basically. A more secure and cheaper version of accountable drive. Thanks. We centralization on encryption, so it really feels into next. He's going after a completely different market segments are always your intention. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. So

How Ambrosus (AMB) Is Improving Supply Chain Transparency

"Welcome to the tank blow writer, podcast, your guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in language. You understand now over to your host, Neal, Hughes, welcome back to the tech blog rider podcast. Now, as regular listeners will know what this podcast I'm on a bit of a one man mission to look at the tech behind the buzzwords and whole lot real world use cases of how technology is bringing us all together and removing inefficiencies that previous generations just accepted rather than do anything about. I know I know that you're all probably sick of hearing words, which is blockchain and crypto. But for number levers of this transformative technology, I'm here to show you real world use cases of how we're on the verge of something quacks and if you missed the arrival of the internet back in the nineties and everyone shouting, this just a gimmick is a fab who disappear. This is your chance to be on the ROY sort of history. So today I want you to think about something you've probably never considered the lock. Upcycle journey of every food every product and even medicine that you've consumed in your life. And then think about all the middlemen, the regulation and complex aspects of supply chains that we all just take for granted stepped forward. Ambrose Ambrosius is a blockchain powered IOT network for food and pharmaceutical enterprises that enables secure and friction Lewis dialogue between senses, distributed ledgers and databases to optimize supply chain visibility and quality assurance. Despite those complexities, their mission is fairly simple is to set a global standard for decentralized supply chain management and provide quality assurance to enterprises in IOT ecosystems. This is one of just a few projects out there that I'm genuinely excited about because there is a real world need for this technology on the scope for the entire food and pharma industry east huge so book and hold on tight as I beam your ears all the way to Switzerland. So we can speak with the founder and CEO of Ambrose angel for set. Eighty. So massive, warm, welcome to the show angel. Can you tell the listeners a little about who you are and what you do? Yes. So my name is Angeles city. I'm the co, founder and CEO umbrellas to so people listening outside of blockchain, all the crypto space. They only hear Bush words and often fail to see the value in projects, but would this podcast I'm on a mission to help educate people on how technology can solve real will problems. So before we talk about our Bros 'as I mean, can you just tell me the kind of problems that some of the big biggest businesses and brands are currently battling when it comes to the supply chain on why a so desperately in need of an upgrade and ensure that it's fit for this new digital era that we find ourselves in? Yes, in the supply chain area, there are a lot of questions pertaining to the quality of the product where it comes from what happened to its routes thrive. Its life cycle is the product thrill or not. So this brings. A bunch of problems for companies that they do not have a proper means soul. So for instance, other is increasingly every year, a larger and larger number of scandals in the food industry about mislabeled products where the information on the baggage thousand correspond to the truth, and it can be either intentional fraud or simply careless handling of products. But every year the number of these scandals is increasing. So last year furnaces in the US loam, the damage to industry has been about fifty five billion dollars in terms of mislabeled foods. So that end that's just only the financial damage. There's also for the social costs where people are consuming products that are low quality or in the case of medicine, they may simply consume counterfeit products. So right now, this is a major problem for multiple stakeholders in supply chain. It's a problem for obesity, the manufacturers. Why? Because a lot of especially the biggest company. As their brand value is built on. Reputation is on built on assurance of quality for consumers and for the largest companies in the world, their brand failures are in billions, sometimes tens of billions of dollars in what happens when there is a either improper storage of products or unclear traceability or fake of products. There is a big damage for the branded sell because when the consumer is getting a bad product, they look at the packaging, they associated with the company that they're buying. So these creates a huge feign for these companies. They, you know, they're trying to force to fight counterfeiting with different means, but it's very difficult especially in the food sector where food itself is not a very expensive product. So there are note that many advanced than sophisticated means for companies to enforce kind of quality assurance and proof of origin.

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in a language you understand now over to your host, Neal, Hughes, welcome back to the tech blog, ride a podcast and a special Hello to Peter winters, who listens to the show in Richmond over in the US him out to say, I've just finished listening to your podcast with the mastermind guy. Amazing story, huge, thanks for sharing. And he also shared with me how he was putting together automation tools that will help improve results in his business such as custom graphic displays for trade shows, events and corporate spaces, etc. So Peter, if you are listening, I have replied to your Email and are meant what I say. When I say when you get this open ruining there is an open invitation for you to come onto the show. I'm very keen to tear down that false wall and feature listeners voices and listeners stories on this show too. So a big, thank you for your Email Peter. And hopefully we'll get to speak to you on this show really, really soon. But as for today's show off invited Kevin O'Brien onto the show tonight. And he's the c. e. o. of a company called great horn and Kevin going to talk about fishing and how it continues to be a primary security problem for businesses, and anyone that's worked in a corporate environment will know somebody that's clicked on one of those dodgy links or downloaded that dodgy attachment and equally. We've probably all got a family member that's done something similar to book great horn is an Email security company that's doing something about this and utilizing machine learning to automate this identification and remediate advance Email and social engineering attacks to finally put a stop to these attacks is a really cool conversation about a topic. I suspect every single person listening to me speak here as encountered at some point. And if they haven't, if they want to look ones, I'm pretty sure they know somebody that has so book alot and hold. It on time. So I can be meal is all the way to the Boston Massachusetts area. So we can speak with Kevin O'Brien, CEO of great hone. A massive, warm, welcome to the show Kevin. Can you tell the listeners about who you are and what you do? Certainly, my name is Kevin O'Brien. I am be CEO and co, founder of great orm. We are a cloud native, you know, security company based in the Boston area in Massachusetts. My background is in cybersecurity have been doing this for about twenty years. I was an early member of at stake a famous union in the United States, even as it was founded by group of guys coming out of a hacking group called the loft or more properly lofta the industries and Mr. up in front of the Senate in nineteen ninety six and talked about how the internet could be taken off line in about a half hour and they thought that might be a problem. And from there start a company, just a few short years later, I was there more or less at the beginning of within six months of the company getting started. I was very young but fell in love with cybersecurity and in love with startups. And this is number six, four. Me. Now I've been part of a number of high growth companies and knock on wood. All of them have been successfully acquired exited prior to two. Great. Wow. Okay. You go entrepreneurial blood running in your veins if yo- six thought. So when I was researching you guys, I quickly found that great horn was the finalist in the twenty seventeen say, innovation, son box, face ability to utilize machine learning an automate identification and remediate advanced Email and social engineering attacks. But can you offer this? Can you offer the listeners and overview of exactly what problems as you so for businesses, and also what makes you stand out from all those other solutions out there? The business problems that great horned tries to solve our issues around advanced him for it, and understanding that means you have to understand a little bit of history of security. Probably around this time that I was getting started in the late nineteen nineties, early two, thousands. You start to see organizations purchasing third party solutions. For Mel risk. But the risks in those days were very different from the ones that face today, they were spam in gray, male, Grenell being effectively, not malicious with, but anything that you don't want Email continuity in the old days when you still ran an exchange server, most likely and it was on a server rack, had a patch cable running to it while if the intern like I was back in the early days, kicked patch cable out your Email server. And so there were services people bought from a continuity perspective to to maintain access to Email should that happen. Those companies became Email security companies over the intervening fifteen years or so, but largely failed to

"Welcome to the tank blog writer, podcast, your guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in a language you understand now over to your host, Neal, Hughes, welcome back to the tech log. Ride podcast. Another week is flying by or any of you going on your holiday soon as a whole. As remember tweet or Email me, your vacation picks away. You listen to the show. Sings are spent a large part of my time speaking into your ears. I want you to be my is a live my life charissa through which is in no way a sinister as it might sound just like seeing what you all get up to in your corner of the world. But hey, onto most serious matters such as the true cost of hiring a new employee hiring the right people is notoriously difficult. Estimates put the true cost of recruiting the wrong employees anywhere between two hundred and fifty thousand eight hundred and fifty thousand especially when you factor. In hiring on boarding compensation, severance legal fees, etc. Not to mention that most tech companies are still dramatically on even with seventy percent men map today. I have a great story about how a six time founder and circle seal. I see, oh, called Jim rose, is tackling these challenges using data first evaluations and opening up about how they think about hiring differently over the course of the last nine month. Jim is pushed a completely reshaped the company's hiring process to weed out any of that unconscious bias decreased turnover, improve diversity and most importantly, make sure the right person for the job gets hired. I think it's a really interesting approach and the results are equally as fascinating so book and hold on tight as I beam your ears all the way to San Francisco. So we can speak with Jim rose. CEO of circle say are. So massive, warm, welcome to the show until the listeners about who you are and what you do. Yes. So my name is Jim rose. I'm the CEO of a company called circle CI. Well, what I do is combination of cat hurting plus recruiting. So we are development tools company and a continuous delivery service. So we help other software development organizations automate their processes so that they can build and release software faster. Excellent. Not Schick who say, oh, Easter leading platform for software innovation at scale. That's the reputation. How's that? Having the digital marketplace? Always intelligent automation and delivery tools. Circassian is used by more than twenty. Five thousand engineering organizations willed wide, including some huge names, which is Facebook. Spy fi gopro blue apron Bleacher report and coin base on the all use it to reduce the time from idea to execute. But anyone that as new to what you do, can you just help set the scene for listeners how in just a few short years, you've become one of the largest built systems on the planet. Fantastic. Yeah, it's been a, it's been quite a wild ride. We basically fit right in between the time. A developer makes a change in code until bad changing code ends up being a running application in a data center. So if you magic how the process works, software developer makes a change in the code base. They committed to their Git repo. Once we sense that that changes vanden added, we check the code out, we build it, we tested, we do whatever's necessary that's defined by the developer to make sure that that change is still valid in good. And after that changes been validated, everything is green weaken than automatically deploy it and update the application in the data center in. So between the the hubs of the world circle CI and something like AWS. You can have a fully automated development tool chain from soup to nuts. And when circles started out, we really started out trying to automate the process for really early fast-moving venture back tech companies. So many of those companies on the list really started out as small, two, three, four person shops that were trying to build software to test invalidate idea in when circle started, we really built a solution container made for that use case in tailor made for those users who were busy trying to release fast and really understand if the thing that they're working on is actually a real business. So that was our initial target as those companies picked up steam as they figured out that, for example, crypto currency, in the case of coin base is a really good idea quite lucrative. They would then start to hire developers in as they hired developers, they would write more code is. Network code, they write more tests is right more test. They would need to buy more from circle. So we had a great opportunity to sensually partner

"Welcome to the tank bloke writer podcast, your guy to future Tech Trends and innovation in a language you understand now over to your host Neal Hughes, I say, well, welcome back to the tech blog rider podcast. Now, as you all know by now I'm passionate about how technology can bring people together. So real problems and hey, maybe even bring world peace. Yes. People say, I'm a dreamer I'm reliably informed are not the only one finish on, but for your sake I'll resist the now. I recently came across a company called Wego health, which is the largest network of patient leaders that works across virtually all health conditions and topics while also collaborating with stall life science companies, nonprofit agencies, government, and all types of organizations dry across the healthcare industry. And we are health CEO. Jack Barrett is also super passionate about the. Old social media plays in hacking healthcare to create a better future for patient treatment. I guess a great story which really should you not professionals experts and patients from all over the world to improve healthcare, and I can only be a great thing. So book h-a-l-o and hold on toy as I beam, your ears all the way to Boston. So today we can speak with. We go health CEO, Jack Barrett. So a massive warm, welcome to the show Gye. Can you tell the listeners about who you are and what you do? Absolutely. Yeah. I'm the guy sitting in Boston and with a network of patients who I believe will change the world. I'm a CEO and founder of Wego health and eleven year old company which is in at work of one hundred thousand patient leaders and what I what I do all day is make sure that I hope every healthcare company knows the value of really working side by side with top patient leaders, these advocates, influencers, opinion, leaders who lead communities online and bring real skills to the dissolving healthcare problems. And you really seem to be doing just that week. I also collaborates with startups, lock science companies, nonprofits agencies, governments, an old talks of organizations across healthcare on a live, how he technologies plant such a big part in that, but can you tell the listeners a little bit more about exactly what problems you solve? What makes week? Oh, health, unique. Can stand out from other solutions out there. Sure. We love the problem solution approach, right? It really comes down to what problems are you solving? One of our members, Natalie Hayden says that patients should be not problems to be solved, but problem solvers and and that's what we've done is is vetted a network of over one hundred thousand people who are truly IRS and have stepped up to be opinion, leaders and experts that can work directly with healthcare companies, not every patient's ready to do that. Many patients are regular folks and they wanna get better. They wanna be patient and maybe solve their own personal problems with technology. But we go health patient leaders are the ones who said that to help as many people as I can with a combination of a lot of region understanding of other communities, but also using technology to help a lot of other folks who by motivation is to help the world get better as I've gotten better or managed to illness, it's very serious. So you know. Yes. Great question. Which is, you know, what kinds of problems do we really solve in maybe two simple buckets. I'll talk first about digital health companies. You know, the hot hot space of digital health, which is booming and we'd like to see design and adoption problems. If things were particularly good at solving. So you know, working with the top patient leader in any given condition or disease or topic can really help to design whether it's an app or a or a device or whatever it may be in with a mind, and I of that entire community of behind you. So when you're going to hire someone to do user experience design or collaborate on messaging for were telling the world about that new product to do digital health device or app, why wouldn't you work with someone who lives every day with a disease that you're working on? And we found that very small slice advan diagram. People who have the professional skills to sit with your team side-by-side, be accountable, be paid. And be a part of that problem solving in a way that makes that design something that not just a good idea and the right thing to do to have patients involved, but also a great business solver. The other big problem that digital health companies have as I see it is adoption terrific device, wonderful app, you know, we've, we've consulted with the patients, but no one is downloading it. No one is using it. And if you don't tell the world about that and you don't have a way to really get that digital health device adopted, then you're not gonna succeed to patient influencers of our members are as we say, usually reaching about fifteen thousand other followers every month. So they're not just experts. They're also influential in their communities. And when they talk to their followers about a digital health application or technology, those people listen to them and understand that they have a very objective point of view and and tend to the uptake is radically different than when company just tries to advertise get the word out themselves. So solving design at adoption for digital health companies is one of the things. We love to do and working with those those high new companies. One of the things that put your mar right? Are there also providing enterprise and on demand solutions allow entire organizations to leverage that patient experience and expertise in the design development and promotion of healthcare solutions? Can you expand on that also, fatigue being something that you've had to overcome? Apetite is a good example of where we see the application of the the wet wear, right? The human element to digital health is so important that if there's not support and in a community that surrounds the technology very often, that technology just can't live on its own and what you look at it. My favorite example is maybe an old one now, but a running ABC called run keeper that so many people use which which objectively is not the best running management app for even for an athlete or anyone else. But they built a community of over a million folks who are talking with each other about how they did and went out in comparing results and that community is become perhaps. More important than the app itself. So that's fundamental to our belief is that the social support for digital health is what makes the whole picture work the technology on its own won't succeed without that social support. That's example that you've used because. I used caper and this new people that come on the Sade and site now chart this is ruin caper running up, but I'm not quite quote lot run Cape up it using it for years and fill assert an affiliated with us stick with, you know. Right, right. I might talk to analysts a lot about what digital health technologies are going to stick. And I said, well, tell me about the community around the technology and some of them say, well, what do you mean say, well, if if you can't answer the question, then I'll tell you won't be on the market very long, and that's been, that's frankly held up pretty well when people are asking about things like wearables that that were all based on the band is the coolest band will if no one's talking to each other about what their band is telling them, it's not going to be the ban they wear for very long. So do you ever use cases all examples of how businesses are working with you just to help visualize how you sure and life sciences companies make a lot of our business. I think that's where people may be most surprised that expert patients, patient influencers

This is a fantastic, starve story really is not having completed a twenty four hour hacker phone for a map and the complete built of the launch of game of thrones at so that cathedral not to mention securing numerous. I for venues and brands, ROY across the for me. This is a great example doing things differently and transforming experiences, an expectation levels, and it's proving to be a big hit with a world biggest brands. So that's how they appeared on my radio. But now it's time for you guys and dolls at home to bookl- and hold on tight. As I beam your ear. All the way to London, so we can speak with Ben Gumbo from Chateau bat, Lund. So a massive warm, welcome to the show Ben. Can you tell the listeners about who you are and what you do? Thanks very much be on your show. I am co-founder of shouts about London, which is a creative events, agency focusing on London, oversee the best in the world. We've been going for plumbing five years in this year, and we work with corporate clients to find them unique venues for events and mainly advertising media and technology. Companies reason, why would they source of clients is because they're normally interested in one off events in unique locations and we, we find those locations, and then we organized catering the production and tied together the entire event. So yeah, that's what we do. The very just seem to be a close attention to detail as well. I mean, even just calling your office, you have the clash Linden calling play. That. Straight away from that. I'm glad you picked up on that on. Unfortunately, when you upload when you have a song on the dial teen, sometimes a little bit loud. So you probably noticed it was actually quite loud. You have to hold the headset away from your head, but that's part of what we were going for. And we actually change a few times a year. So when we get to, you know, how do we? We have werewolves of London more obtuse song when we will talk about life in the show. Probably we, we now are in venue to lose. We actually had to sunset as the as the dolphin. When we when we got hold of that, it's always the little things and and even having a name like shout about is one of those phrases that everyone uses anyway, they say, oh, if you shout back, you know, deejays and things. I'll shout out to this person. So where will about shout shouts out and we always try and get it in, you know, wherever we kind of emails and things. So it's the little things and that sort of builds the brand. So now we do have people listening all over the world to our conversation here in the u k. At the moment, but can you tell the listeners a little more about how you hosting one of the most talked about events of two thousand eighteen recently and also what Shai about London is and what it is that makes you guys unique from other solutions and other agencies out there? Yeah. Well, I think we, I think we recognize there was a bit of a gap in the market for for a London specialist. There's literally thousands, probably tens of thousands of vents management companies in the u. k. and they all claim to operate worldwide, because you know everyone in this day and age has access to a computer, and it's very easy to to research and defines recommend venues by using Google. But for us, it was a real lack of London specialists in this era through. That's why wants to have London in the name because we wanted to be really focused on on on the city so that people know that eating, we've real specialist slot when you're buying a house, obviously want to, you know, you wanna buy from a from a from a lettings agents or whatever. That knows the local area. So for us, it was all about. Yeah, but being specialist as I say, and yeah, we done. We've done some pretty high profile events. Recently did a, we did a product for less than you dear up shoe that was everything from, you know, organizing the venue running the BAAs working with a French production agency, the done the wealth launch of this shoe, this deer up shoe the week before in Paris and the Loof. And so the taking it to the next level really. And we pretty hot profile events so much. We can talk about some which we call 'cause we work with banks and things, but some of them were notes notes that we've done. We work with Redbook quite stuff. We've red bull and we did. We did a couple of vents earlier in the year which are in disuse venues around the country. And that's when we kind of shouts a bit further afield from London. So we did. We did a one party four thousand rebels staff and into shoes railway station, and my. Stuff, and we all say, did the same event down south and the dishes print factory and Bryson in terms of what makes us unique. You know these finding these one off locations that have never been used and putting on something that is a true to unique experience. Is it challenging funding those unique locations and those issues places that that saw value? Really, that's off, I'll Utah to our clients. If in this day and age, there's so many websites where you can, you know you put in, you want to under people for standing reception and they'll be hundreds of websites that you can see on Google, but, oh, oh, a real faith is he's finding venues Google venues that you caught find online and and is that is free context knowing landlords working with councils, property companies so that these venues completely off grid. When we get the rights event, we can approach the the, the owner of the site and and set it to them. Normally it's not about the money. It's more about, you know, the the profile at the event, all their NPR benefits. But finding the venue is, is, is difficult. And we really product sells only looking at the venues that are truly unique. So do any of your team or they secretly urban explorers.
