Using Email As A Sandbox Marketing Strategy With SalesNexus President, CEO Craig Klein
"There's another useful way to take advantage of email which is using emails. You're sandbox for marketing strategies. A most people would think that email is part of the marketing strategy. Tell me how email can influence the stuff. You're doing outside of the inbox. So we work with a lot of to sales teams so that can be sometimes startups. It sometimes can be longtime established businesses. That have been really sales driven for a long time but now they're trying to move into the digital marketing world sort of finding their footing there in i see them really spin their wheels a lot for a while because just like anything. There's a lot to learn before you really get to be an expert. And so what we've found is that you know if you compare for instance you could go and your digital marketing guy might say well you know we can start a pay per click campaign and we can spend five thousand dollars a month for a few months and gather quite a lot of data and we'll start to get things tuned in and figure out what works and you know maybe in six months will really start to see some roi on that investment which okay. That's a reasonable strategy. Six months is a long time to return on a ppc campaign. But i hear you but for a b. two b. company. There's so much variability in what's going to happen. After that lead converts from google point of view now they've got convert as a sale for the sales team as customer for the business and trying to get those two things working right. That's the hard part. So that's where. I see email marketing being so valuable. Because it's such an easy and affordable sandbox for you to play around if you're longtime established business then you've got a list of past customers pass leads and existing customers and so you can take all those lists and start testing some campaigns and it might take you a few days to put together the campaigns in the emails and orchestrate all that. But you're going to get data immediately. And i you're gonna look it opens and clicks and all that and see if the email performed but then you're going to watch what happens with the sales people who they close any of those deals once you start to get that feedback you can go back and make some changes to the campaign and do it again. And there's almost zero incremental costs other than a little bit of time right whereas in edwards campaign a really any digital platform. You're going to have to rerun those ads and spend the same amount of money spent i

Let's see no specs on those things and that's weird. Because i'm not good at it but i still find stuff and then i'm like them. What happened mc seems like it's an important thing going. Hey this mates up to a certain size flange and it grows to their salary. Seems like they'd show you the opening where the flanges and the overall inches which was weird. Because there's got to be. Yeah so that's a zone within exhaust the modern version with a muffler on it which is interesting because maybe you just want the tip portion of it and somebody figured that out but you want it to be kinda street -able. Yeah but we're not looking for that. No so they sell you that they sell you those but they don't give you the spec on it Yeah it's really basic description on on a lot of these just like it's fourteen inches long no The leg and the weight. But i'm not seeing diameter cared about the one. I looked at one that Three and a quarter inches at their widest point. Okay that's that's a piece of. Yes but this link like they're not all three and a quarter. Well that's what i said at the big end. I don't want you to just read that and give you that information. I got three and quarter. Yeah that's about right so it takes two and a half heads down it heads down to something. Yeah and you just have to clip it at some point. See where it went. I don't know we'll we'll figure it out. We'll just go straight out with exhaust in a. Yeah i mean the truth is. That's not that complicated for sean. Now to make that's to round tubes and he just tax in some divider. Yeah i read three and a quarter and like two in the center or one and three quarters something something like that and you think the flange the collectors. Three inch diameter no. I'd say it's three. And a quarter to widen. It probably tapers down to two and a half two and a quarter or something like that. But that's that's fourteen sixteen inches away. The question is where you had at eight inches. Yeah well if he was gonna make it if he didn't taper it super easy right. Then you just just go get to get a three. In accordance to get a two inch tube. And that's it but yeah tapering. It is where it comes into more steps last but not least there's Gyco joan your rent.

That's cool about this car is when we'll park it on the lawn at some point the peter now people are going to be mixed because they're gonna think it's a tribute car or a clunker something because they're not used to seeing b. r. e. and yellow yellow right but they made a privateer car mystery. Alright yeah and and will Will pop it up for you but you can. that's fantastic. Yeah it's such an and you know yellow not my favorite color for a car but when you start start mixing in the white and the black and then the red berry and you start all those especially the roof a Brookwood paint the number on the roof. And the datsun. And everything it just all starts coming together into a really cool piece like one of the cruelest five tens. Even though obviously the john morton red white and blue on is cool. This one's interesting. 'cause i don't think anyone has seen it. I think it's actually cool from that. Perspective and for two is You mentioned people asking whether it's attribute. Or whatever i mean. That's the question that has to be asked around any forty six car that anybody sees because it's gotta be knocked off more than a louis. Tom her yeah right right whereas the twenty six cards i who's replicated that car most people don't even know about it you know. It doesn't look bad sitting next to bob's six ten. That's right we've got next to the other five ten which was great because as we were putting this car together you need it sort of a roadmap on just some of the custom pieces under the hood that were made by the team and without having the two car side-by-side it's really tough to sort of replicate it but now to be able to replicated in literally like the dimensions of honor just some cool and hopper or something like that tank or something. Yeah really need to see you caring. And i'm not pandering here at but it is neat to see you carrying the torch of these cars history because Having been there in the day. And i think i may have mentioned this last time. We spoke but i was volunteer on the union. Seventy six gas station at laguna seca during the transam challenging. So i was right in the middle of it. All went car was being tacked horn after all. That and i was pumping gas in the cars. You know i was. I was there during that time. A huge influence on my life.

He's so humble about it all Just the way he carries himself and his ideas or just you know some of them are really out there but man is he. Nailed a lot of a lot of designs is right on the money. I would even add that. Peop- brock has influenced a lot of people and a lot of car designers over the years without them knowing it how many designers even just love something like this sixty three split when no corvette and not knowing peop- rocks history behind designing that car. Not knowing that he was nineteen years old when he got a lot of credit for that as well but it was right there and just an amazing guy who's contributed a ton too you know are the things that we love.

"So maximum pat knowing what we're looking for but give me a tough one explain. Describe it c- bring of anything. We'll exhaust looks like a. Yeah it it looks like a. I'm not seeing it. Looks like a paper towel tube inside of a larger tube with five gusset holding the middle in play. Yeah so we're going to be looking for just the tip. Just the opening of the exhaust. It's only going to be. Yeah yeah yeah. And he got the headers i like. I said i founded. It didn't didn't take wasn't didn't take that much to find it. It's it's out. there was kind of here. Go down to fifty nine and blow up car number fifty nine and zoom in on the exhaust. No that doesn't that looks different. Sorry i lied. go to go to the blue. The blue one to the right let seema. Not that one doesn't have either Let's see we'll find it for you. Let's see there's a there's an rs are the There's a green are. Are you find pictures of that. Green are sr from the rear. You shall now you shall see. It's that green. Are you find that car from the rear you shall. You shall see what the exhaust looks like on that car. Yeah that's it see. It's got the inner with the outer. Yeah not exactly a straight on shot. Yeah now you kind of know what. You're what you're looking for. Yeah and it's kind of hard to find because even when you start searching for things like there it is or showers are veterinary out there. you go. it's good luck right. Yeah there's a. I i have no idea. You know how the inner tube the outer to work it looks. It's a good. It's a good luck. It's it's a different kind of header. I i don't know if they're trying to make a little back pressure. Not sure what the plan was when we explain. Did you did. Is this what you thought. But i've just. I don't mean this to pick on you i mean as we're trying to explain it in my head. I can picture it. You could picture of course unlike. Is this making any sense this entire adult life by the way. Okay okay so having conversation the the the exhaust tip looks like the for you nerds the windshield frame for the millennium falcon. The sign of a tie fighter tie fighter. Yeah i knew is one of the nerdy planes. Can't you're right. It's it's very star. Wars the star wars right. It has like the the you know. What i'm talking to our tube and gossips that make star and it's cool looking. I don't know why just happens to be cool looking. And you know my car's kind of frankenstein car like it's not an r. Sr it's not this. It's not that but it kind of most mimics a seventy four are back on. That picture was the rear valance. Notched but i think it went all the way across in this particular. Oh i see yeah and it's a little different on the side. Yeah it's not actually comes down in the singer. Things are a little bit different. That's a little different but that does bring up the idea. Instead of sean filling in the center what if he just kept cutting to the edges. That's now he has to just finish it and paint the lip. That's a noble suggestion. Right shelby Making right because then you just white the edge. Yeah yeah i'm with you go go all the way across. We'll take that picture and send it to senate to shine max pat. That's that's all we gotta do. Now you've found the owner. No i haven't yet sean. Sean says that you can't just go straight out the back. It actually comes in and comes up a little bit. He's worked for another thirty hours of work he i i'm like feel like this. It just comes straight out of the back. Right off the header. And he's like now. It's a little too wide. You gotta bring it in a little bit so It it looks in this picture like it is brought in a little bit is from we got. So he's got a section off something and make a couple are in reference to the tail lights. He'll be able to see what's going on Yeah the outside of the pipes are right to the inside of the tail lights. Bring it back a little max pattern. Yeah and we'll see and if anything bar the declan that that's right tackle it the outer. Why is part of the exhaust. Should be even with the deck lid. According to and now. I'm not even driving our sock but no but look he needs some reference right point right either way. I'm into tires into wheels. And then what. I rarely talk about is exhaust. I do not like when the period correct exhaust is not on the car. And actually we've had a lot of the conversations because when we dug through photos it was one of the identifying marks of a lot of the newman cars. Is it the exhaust coming out of the front or back on the on the rocker panel. There's the dual exhaust on some of the cars on one side and the two side you're really talking about i think the clayton cunningham cars to the exhausted well yeah but the clayton cunningham cars. Some had the turbo blow off like right behind the front fender. Some had the v. Eight my are has exhausted. Goes all the way back right interesting enough. Milnes car has the one that goes all the way back. But it's a turbo so it can be a little confusing. Identify a lot of the cars especially if they look kind of the same by the exhaust for us. It was like is the exhaust coming. It was with oldsmobiles on a lot of them. Is it coming out of one. Side is coming out of both sides. They doubled it up on one side. They just moved. Because i'm sure it had to do with the amount of noise they were allowed to make. And how much muffler you put into the side. Almost like in the door panel of the passenger side. But you're right like on millon's card. The turbo acts is a bit of a muffler. so why wouldn't it be exit right behind the wheel less. He's running the turbo anna muffler to get. I don't know it's kind of interesting End of that car at some point. See what he's in their gordon mccall's on the blower let me I just hit j. b. weld. Diy ours and pros of trusted j. b. weld for fifty years plus for projects big and small home and garage used the world's strongest bond. I they game in another bounty of product.

Mapped President & CEO, Shaun Cooley, Discusses His Company's Creation Story
"This is the creation story of napped. Some mapped is a data infrastructure platform. We bring together all the people places and things instead of commercial industrial environments And so if you think of sort of a stack inside of one of these commercial or industrial environments you've got the devices that are doing things inside the environments you know think of the h back controllers and the lighting controllers you know in a in a manufacturing floor you've got robotic arms and conveyor belts and other sort of process automation pieces the next layer up Tends to be a network infrastructure the network infrastructure brings those pieces together On an ip network so they can communicate with each other but the pieces tended to still be a sort of bespoke right the piece of equipment that were installed by system integrator at some point over the last fifty years you know using whatever the latest bag of tools and techniques were and now you know the companies that own many many buildings or many retail stores or many data centers or many factories are trying to get data across their entire environments. Even though these things are all ip connected they tend to be from different vendors. Installed by a different system integrator is different names functioning just slightly different right because the goal at the time that they were installed was to operate out environment not to provide a single business. Intelligence layer For the company And so now that there's an ip connected we go in and we'd build on top of that. The data infrastructure that sits on top of that network structure. And so you can think of it as the the missing piece between sort of the raw network and the applications and business intelligence that you're trying to trying to extract from your operations

Maybe how it's being funded but one of the bright sponsors preschool fact that got pass i think about you know in hawaii. We've been we had been working for several years. Universal preschool to pass it still has not passed. They're right on. There's so much research for many many years around when you can provided child was the right kind of early. Learning opportunities changes a trajectory of child's life. Right so i was really excited to see pass. I think you know there are some in the community. Who are maybe not necessarily very pleased with the funding mechanism for that. And you know. I certainly can't. I can't speak to that but i would say from an early learning perspectives. I think we need to think more about how we make. High quality early learning experiences available to all children whether they can afford it or not So that for me was a bright spot in portland right. And i realize it's a county measure audi program and i hope said time we figure out has scale it and sustain it across the state police where we clearly have significant challenges is with. The house was problem. It was and still is a very significant issue in hawaii. The numbers much larger here in hawaii because the slice of the population is different But it is you know. There are so many organizations and people in oregon particularly in the metro area working very very hard to address the issue right and this is one place during feel like is not how much harder to work. But how much smarter can we and it really. The hardest thing to do in my estimation is to bring everybody together under a single class right a single state plant in then county plans and then city grants and you know that is a very very difficult to do. I think that there are many people in the community government as well as in the business sector. Who were to make that happen. So i think that's a bit of a bright spot as i think about you know. Am i inspired a movie forward. The answer is yes but it will really take all these resources together In order to have the hassles problem. I'm be addressed in a very significant visible way that That we all in our communities can acknowledge it. See it's making a difference right. And i think the most recent bill that was passed which i think is like i dunno two point. Seven billion dollars over the next ten years a tremendous amount of money being directed at that issue. And you know. I think speaks to Accountability and a lot of work that needs to get done coming together. And the will is there and i think our intentions are really well. And that's why. I have have a hard time with these naysayers about portland whether the national media because portland has always been very progressive in wanting to do these things and coming to the table. You know where that the progress is and that will take time. And there's people like you that are out there doing the work. So thanks for sherry non in a couple more questions just personally for you as you've been in portland the bay area hawaii. How's it been for you move in here and just personally and professionally is now a resident of for area. You now i think about you. Know how different would it be if i were in hawaii versus in portland because i move just in front of the pandemic and honestly i know. I don't say. I don't think it would be much different Certainly the civil unrest is a little bit different and they were recent historical reasons for that here in portland I am enjoy Being here at this time. Because i feel like our organization has the responsibility to be a part of you know whatever solutions. We want to be a part of in our communities here. So that's number one. I love suggestion seasons and spin on a really nice move for me. And i you know i think about to the point that you made aerobic earlier this Communities year the business sector the private sector general public government agencies. We all care very deeply about where we are and our responsibility to our neighbors in two kids that live here so you know. I don't think there's certainly a lack of attention to make a difference over the years. But i really do think it's important that we all come together that we do this in a very coordinated way in order to To get us to a better place. Mike thank you know especially as i think about how. Businesses especially small businesses have been decimated the last twelve months or so We really need to focus on economic development because that that does a lot for education it does a lot for house eight and it does a lot for for businesses and for the tax basis oregon.

Let's say we administer several hundred as to their employees. We can quickly tell them which people are feeling comfortable aligned in their job. Which ones have severe jack stress and sometimes of distress is is intense enough. We actually refer to an resignation pattern. We say this person unless you take action. This person will likely be here in six months. They really don't like their job. We can see that so. That's a little bit unique. Model organizations can measure that. I find that that part of it. Incredibly fascinating i think one of my passions for leadership is because i think that so often you see people who are maybe in the wrong seat on the bus or they're on the wrong bus altogether and makes me wonder about this tool have. Have you ever used it to help people before they find themselves on the wrong bus or the wrong. Cnn the bus is another another great question but all the time that's what we do almost daily You know the the bus analogy referring to is the jim collins book going to great which you know It was a very popular business book.

Chip Shortage Hits GM, Leads to Production Cuts
"Get back to Tom Doll. He's president CEO over its Subaru of America still with us on the phone from Subaru headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. So, Tom, let me ask you. I'm sure you've been asked about it many times. And I was I did watch earlier when you were joining our Bloomberg TV colleagues this GM story today, saying that they have some chip shortages and then it was hurting it. You guys you've been doing okay? So far we have been yes, it is going to affect us at some point along the way, but we know that through the first quarter of the year March, it's not going to impact us all that much. Now we're still waiting to get Information from our suppliers about how it might affect us as we get out into April and may in particular But we're hopeful that the impact isn't going to be that much. What's going on. It's a good question. You would think that there'd be enough supply, given the fact that he's like trying devices inside G devices that people are saying is the cause of the shortage of people who are purchasing these things well before the pandemic started. And then coming out of the production was actually for us was very strong and we could get really all the chips we wanted through the period until probably early part of December, and that's when we first started to hear about this potential for a chip shortage. So I know they're working with our suppliers all over the world to try to figure out Where we can source additional chips and I'll be honest with you. I mean, it seems to us anyway, The situation seems to be getting better A supposed to worse, but I can't speak for all of the other manufacturers. I can only kind of speak from us, right? Right. I do have one question though. I'm curious. Are you concerned or could it lead to higher prices down the road, Potentially Specially. There are shortages. I mean, it could be depending upon what the chip manufacturers do with their pricing. We all have pricing contracts with the chip suppliers. But in a situation like we're in, and if you've gotto somehow find another source for your chip supply, there could be increases and chip prices, But we're not at this point forecasting any Significant increase in in prices as a result of the chip shortage well, and it's interesting to you know, we've been talking a lot about kind of the chip industry. I feel like Tom over the last year. I mean, I look at my car. It's so much a piece of technology in the amount of, you know, technology that's in it running in. And as you move towards, you know, evey is it becomes I feel like even more So, um Do we need to as a world as a country kind of look at our chip supply chains more closely, and maybe even as governments being much more active in terms of those businesses and making sure that everybody and anybody who needs them has access to them. They're they're clearly a vital aspect of our vehicle production. There's no question about it because they're in so many different components there in our head units there in our engine control modules. We're in a lot of the advanced safety equipment that we provide. So I do believe that it is something that governments need to look into that. Make sure that there's a secure supply of these chips of that manufacturers such as ourselves, don't get caught in a situation where you can't supply an adequate number of these chips that would meet supply on meet demand, because You know if it's manufacturers aren't able to get these ships and literally does stop the production because you can't produce these vehicles and then insert the chip later, the chip has to be inserted into the device before it gets put into the vehicle. So it really is something that you know, can really throw a wrench into the whole production system. So where it is something I think it needs to be examined and looked into.

"Thanks for having me. Last time we talked it was election night but if felt like ten years ago and we didn't have decision of all night now. You have president-elect go by vice president elax uplift. Here's how you feel about that. How do you feel about this historic moments. I mean it's obviously we've been working towards what does twenty twenty look like for blackmon's leadership from the voting booth to elected office in so we found ourselves in you know Excited about a commonly harris presidential run in the democratic primary in south carolina in like our most diverse democratic stage was down to two fits the historic moment right white male older And so we continue to dig in. There was a record number of women running for office in a record number of black woman writing for the particularly for the united house of representative and then the summer counts and joe biden said with allowed work in areas advocacy around the need of seeing diverse ticket that you have multiple black women who are being considered vice president that we were all excited. When vice president biden announced comma harris in. So let me tell you what ends up happening. There's all there's road to twenty twenty. Election day mike road to twenty twenty election result. I'm at the grocery store getting eggs nine. When they announced that they had called the race Call the election in so prideful moment. I mean regardless if you're a woman that supported the biden harris ticket or not women cross country in the globe you know celebrate the fact that we are moving our leadership inch by inch. In matter of fact we we'd like crack crack. Open the possibilities that exist for women's leadership and then you add in comma harris boldly walks within her multiple identities right in multiple cities is a woman of color a daughter of immigrants. You know a black woman who literally when you open up. The book on political leadership is a pipeline ran for local office statewide executive office federal office in his literally stepping in to her next phase into the office as a governing mate or the highest office see also then brings her cultural identities right. Here's a woman who is a member of historically black. Greek letter or station alpha kappa alpha sorority incorporated in attended historically black college Into all those identities. I believe the the enthusiasm that we saw in this general election was that people could see themselves in her right. I am a daughter of jamaican immigrant. So that excites me. I am a proud member of the same sorority. Didn't go to a historically black college but knowing importance of those institutions in then you bring author qualifications as an elected leader that she is literally. Her leadership was built for this moment in. So we celebrate. So what are the things that i wanted to mention this summer rates all over the summer and the spring before he chose in letter rate and those are really time for me because she in her campaign. I really wanted her to to get nations. I was supportive. And i know higher heights endorser early on but you know some of you know being the dallas. You enter pain. But then there's more this period where he hadn't jobs his the and he's inside a woman then there. Is this push to relax the one and you know. I just remember that even when she was during primaries President you know. She had a very short period where she was in criticized right And ask framed by Came out so quickly right. And i remember and wanna bring this comparison for a reason. She was criticized for being Criticized her laugh. but why didn't they in particular that really got. My attention was horrible. The morale her career and her as a prosecutor and that's really important because she was not the only prosecutor on that stage. Unity rate anywhere shar and this isn't a comparison of their relatives. Prosecutors talking about how the media in how constituents in how we as a culture you know have these two separate vetting processes because we lizard is hopping about any close jars time as a prosecutor was. You know once Race so that you know how we prepare about women in leadership roles to deal unequal yet. I mean at the end of the day. Black women have all these institutional barrier barriers man-made obstacles and then you add in unconscious or conscious. I usually put them both in unconscious conscious bias about our leadership that what has been perceived as a strength for a white man or one of our counterparts is actually negative for us from ambition You know at the end of the day as voters we should be questioning our elected leaders lying for our votes on our on our records but there was definitely a very strong framing around her around being a top cop in. What does that mean in. We had to be careful on that right like we. I as i said no problem in conversation about her record write in we can agree or disagree but most people will be. You mean that. She's a top cop. She put people in jail right. People can get past that soundbite They couldn't say well. It was this case. The way this policy that she put into place I would always adding with her early. We wanted to dream. The possibilities in this country was ready for a woman in a black woman. But you know as. I continue to grapple with that. 'cause i don't wanna be like hey nor cartoon territory light. I'm your petty Patty moments she president Is that the world is different than when we were in the democratic primary

Tech's free speech debate is about Zuckerberg vs. Dorsey
"Many Americans are facing different realities disparities in covert nineteen deaths for one and right now they're expressing outrage over different things for some stay at home orders have moved them to protest for others it's police violence against unarmed citizens it can feel as though we're living in two different countries so we're talking about that today and one of the places where you can feel America's divide is social media we're divisions are also stoked by trolls and disinformation social media companies try to monitor that to varying degrees and with varying success but even that is divisive as we've seen this week when president trump expressed fury after some of his tweets were flagged by Twitter for potentially misleading information about mail in balloting then yesterday the company flag one of his tweets about the Minneapolis protest for quote unquote glorifying violence president trump signed an executive order aiming to weaken legal protections tech companies have had for years it's unclear whether he has the authority to do that but given all the events of recent days we want to talk more about this so we've called three prominent figures in this debate Karen Swisher is the co founder of Rico that's a site focused on tech news and New York times contributing writer has been pushing Twitter in particular to take far more aggressive steps in policing false information Swisher welcome back thanks for joining us once again thanks so much financial or is the executive director of aspen digital that's a non partisan organization that researches issues related to tech and digital media and she has a long resume in both digital and traditional media including as a president and CEO of NPR so we very much welcome back to you via thanks Michelle glad to be here Matthew Feeney is the director of the project on emerging technologies at the Cato Institute that's a libertarian research and advocacy group here in Washington DC Matthew Feeney welcome to you thank you for joining us as well no thanks for having me the cast which I'm going to start with you because on Wednesday you wrote an op ed in The New York Times this is after Twitter label to the president's tweets regarding mail in ballots as potentially misleading and they added some contextual information and you called this move a baby step why well it's the first thing they can do I mean a lot of they could have banned them they could have taken down the tweet they could have a lot of things but this is the first time Twitter is ever done any kind of I don't want to use the word punishment this is the wrong thing they've ever taken any action against president trump when he violates their rules which he does all the time you know we could spend a whole program talking about this will tell us more broadly what's your point of view about this well I think they are like publishers and so they have some responsibility instead they allow all district to wash over their platforms and in fact get taken advantage of by malevolent forces and so I think they should do more monitoring of it to fit first of all I love them just to get rid of some of the stuff that's obviously used for propaganda but they just let anybody do anything and what it does is create this sort of giant mass of humanity which nobody knows what is true or not and then other players take advantage of it Alex Jones was the most famous obviously he got tossed off all the platforms so you usually what I want to say you are here and your own capacity as a media executive as a person with a deep background in addition to working at NPR as a president CEO you also work for Twitter but I'm going to ask you on your own hook to tell us what you think about this week's news look I think Twitter has been slow on this I think they should have taken action some time ago that said these are really tricky decisions Twitter now that they've taken an action with the president it's going to be really difficult for them to keep up you know there are five hundred million tweets roughly that are sent every day and there are already calls across the board of what about this tweet what about that tweet and it's going to be very very tricky for them I'm glad they took the move but now the camel's nose in the tent Mr anywhere your thoughts I think this puts on not just with about other social media comes into a tough spot here which is that they are trying to figure out how to moderate this kind of content while remaining in the eyes of the uses the gentleman and it's not a surprise to me at all that in the wake of a good decision to fact check that they have been allegations of inconsistency but anyone looking for inconsistency and this debate is is short to find its there are hundreds of hours of footage uploaded to YouTube every minute there are hundreds of millions of tweets posted every day Hey the system won't be perfect and in fact the way that these phones tree contents depends not oftentimes on the Afrin content itself but what's being said about this and and that is something I wish more people understood in the debate which is a really really hard decisions and unfortunately causing a lot of people on the political rights in the United States of feeling bad somehow agencies would be better at this than private companies and while I think will will never be completely happy with how these private firms navigate these difficult content moderation decisions I would much prefer a private family of public failure in this film while some are because I think of the history of government regulation of speech reveals lessons namely that we should be wary office the fact is that social media is much more than Silicon Valley and their alternatives out there of course the the interesting thing about all of this is that in this debate many people on the Merican conservative space seem to forget that competition is is valuable there all of the social media networks out there well Mister you raised the issue that is it's you know we raising it kind of as a back drop here but it is actually a very big part of this whole discussion which is that there is this argument on the right which is certainly embraced by president trump that these companies social media companies are silencing conservative voices but Democrats and progressives have their own criticisms which is that these platforms have no standards and allow people to be libeled and slandered and somebody's very painful and in some cases dangerous ways I mean the data on the fact that women how women in particular women of color treated on these platforms and targeted particularly public figures who are women there's a great deal of data about the fact that and how they are targeted so she took care of so so the question then becomes you know how to do these things get address of care you want to jump in please do yeah I think let's be clear these are private companies they're not public squares and that's the one thing that seems to happen with the writer like my free speech rights be able to specifically you can't these are private companies owned by billionaires they can set whatever standards they want number one number two there's no evidence that there's any bias in anyway but there is evidence of his abuse of people of people getting abused by by the way on all sides and that's really the problem here is the ability to allow toxicity in lies to continue and that's something a private company should be dealing with but not legislated by the government there is there are certain things you can do and liabilities and things like that that media companies have had dealt with for for a very long time and so there's all kinds of solutions that are possible but I think the really problematic thing is considering these places to be the public square did you can do anything on me what do you think should happen here well I completely agree that there is no place for government regulation here that is a path to a very dangerous place but social media companies must take responsibility I applaud Twitter for actually making an effort here even though I think the path they're choosing is very difficult I was very disappointed in mark Zuckerberg's statements on fox news of all places saying that they don't want to be quote unquote the arbiters of truth they already are algorithms serve certain truths even if they're not human intervention involved they are going to have to I think eventually take some action the oversight board is a step but it's it's not enough we are in a moment now where these divisions have come to the fore we know for a fact that sometimes these mechanisms are used to kind of organize protest organized too really it globally certainly it is the case that they've been used both by people who are trying to find ways to resist government oppression but they've also been used by governments to advance oppressive mechanisms right so do they have a role here to play right now that you think would be constructive and I guess I'll start with you Kerr Swisher yeah absolutely they've been doing a very good job on cove in nineteen information they've been stamping out all kinds of bad health information except for president trump's they took down a bowl scenario they took down Maduro they took down a lot of stuff there and a lot of other stuff so during cove and it shows all of them Facebook Twitter all of them can do it and they can do it well and there was no controversy about that so they're totally capable but they're also capable of creating commonality look at all of the really wonderful stuff from Sarah Cooper to comics to people making jokes that can be used for commonality in a really positive way it's just they're designed towards in rage meant and that's the engagement is designed towards arrangement and that's
Declassified Susan Rice email shows Obama team discussed Russian dealings
"Well on the occasion last week of the first tranche of the classifications by acting deny Richard Grinnell that provided some detail on all of the unmasking requests that were made by all of the various Obama administration personnel as it pertains to Michael Flynn and perhaps others Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley the two centers in Wisconsin and Iowa respectively want more details more a documents declassified because they have more concern that perhaps the surveillance that was being conducted by Obama administration officials predates operation crossfire hurricane on that occasion last week John Brennan former CIA director took to his safe space and M. S. N. B. C. and had this reaction this is also going out and saying give me everything about Michael Flynn absolutely not and quite interestingly the number of reports so we're in December sixteen and January seventeen that were declassified by Richard Grinnell I was surprised at how many dates and reports that were there then what was the ground should do is to declassify and release the contents of those reports in terms of what's the individuals were involved with but what he's doing now is just releasing the names of individuals who again were carrying out their authorized responsibilities shin director Brennan he's getting there yesterday to classifying a email from Susan rice that seems to run counter to things Susan rice was saying in public from a national security perspective president Obama said he wants to be sure that as we engage with the incoming team are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia rice wrote call me said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flanaess speaking frequently with Russian ambassador Kislyak Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information president Obama asked of Comey was saying the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to flan Comey replied potentially adding that there's no indication thus far that Flynn has passed classified information to kids they act but he noted the level of communication is unusual potentially we should not pass sense of information to the incoming president incoming national security adviser is that properly or or fairly Radisson body trying to insinuate his way into a counterintelligence operation against general Flynn well that's what Susan rice memorialized in an email here's Susan rice back on March twenty second of twenty seventeen just a couple months into the trump administration in a sit down on PBS with Judy Woodruff what she had to say about what she knew do you know anything about this I know nothing about this I was surprised to see reports from chairman Nunes on that count today fresh off her performance in the Benghazi a misdirection cover up however you want to describe it we get this from Susan rice I really don't know what to what chairman Nunez was referring but he said that whatever he was referring to was a legal lawful surveillance and that it was potentially incidental collection on American citizens and I think it's important for people to understand what incidental means that means that the target was a either a foreign entity D. or somebody under criminal investigation and that the Americans who were talking to those targets may have been picked up well Devin newness has since revised and extended his remarks so perhaps is in rice would like to do the same for more on this we're pleased to be joined by Fred flights he's a former CIA analyst now president CEO at center for security policy former Deputy Assistant to the president into the chief of staff of the National Security Council thanks for joining us again forget it good to be here about what Susan rice said in twenty seventeen verses what Susan rice memorialized about this January fifth twenty seventeen meeting well wishers lined clearly she knew that there was electronic surveillance of general Flynn what this comes down to what is the intention of B. bomber stretching from the top from president Obama not to honor the very important principle of our democracy and that's called the peaceful transfer of power under that principle the outgoing administration cooperates fully with the incumbent won eight daughters the the will of the people turned over the keys to the officers tells all about farm policy mission underway gives them all the intelligence operations and intelligence they collected they don't withhold information from the incoming president and Tucker offices to use this information to investigate the next administration to undermine it it's really very serious violation of our whole system of government if they had concerns about general Flynn they had to tell the next administration about it cook told president trump and vice president pence and call me if needed later said he was held information twelve Attorney General sessions about Russia also this is an effort by an outgoing administration to undermine and destroy any incoming

I remember when you made the investment in comcast in one thousand nine hundred seven which was a billion dollar investment in the cable business. You were sort of the first to bring the technology industry together with the media industry and the cable industry in that respect a very long time ago. When I was at Microsoft we were very interested. In what the cable industry was doing to build out high speed data build out the high speed Internet Bill Gates and I spent a bunch of time with a lot of people in the cable. Business including Brian Roberts comcast including John Malone thrilling. When I first met him back in ninety three we tried to sell them set top boxes. We tried to drive a lot of things. We were very instant what they were doing with at home. Which was the primary vehicle. Another one road runner which are the primary consortium vehicles to build up that high speed data and eventually Ryan Roberts is the one I said. Look if you want to help us. You should put money and all the cable companies but the only one who really stepped up and wanted our money. Initially we did a bunch more Brian. So then we ended up buying seven percent of comcast and I was on observer on the board so that was my first exposure to cable. Yeah it was a real catalyst. I remember for evaluation starting to rise again people's concerns being alleviated about what the future of cable could be seen as perpetual petrol theme right when you have these traditional media businesses that are always count out in the age of Technology and innovation disruption. And all of a sudden you have real endorsement and it sustains itself and brought Bannon's everything else obviously there are examples that went the other way like newspapers and other things you know. We were lucky twice or I've been lucky twice to catch the right cycle. We did very well in that comcast investment road at up on the growth of high speed data. And then really again when we did charter in two thousand thirteen sort of caught if not a bottom of near bottom on the industry's accelerated since yeah. Is that the way that you think about? Investing and think about buying companies is that you're somewhat countercyclical because obviously given your perch and your history in the industry you could have expertise in any number of areas. So how do you prioritize it? What do you think about? What drives your successes your approach? I wish we were that systematic or organized. Yeah you definitely have to have a thesis and oftentimes. It's gotTa be tacking against conventional wisdom because conventional wisdom gets valued to the Max. And if you're following along that's a really hard place to be. It may work for a while and it kind of momentum play but it's hard to sustain so finding things are out of favor is certainly a good place to start and doesn't mean it'll nestle get back into favor but it's a good place to look. I can also speak to. The other side doesn't matter how clever you were in emerging telecom in the early two thousands when I was running sixty when the capital goes away and when the trend blows up on you you're GONNA have a lot of problems all the emerging telecom companies. But when you think about the career and it is a unique path right. And obviously we'll get to the liberty part of your career now but when you think back at your evolution as an executive and as an investor what do you point to to be sort of like those key moments where you've got to be really good at your craft and obviously it's a humbling experience every single day. But how do you think back at your path and wise unique and differentiated versus others again? I'm not sure there's a systematic thing. I've tried to keep my doors open but I know I've also gone just incredibly lucky to be at Microsoft of the right time and place to move. When I was really from Dillon Reed over to CITICORP venture capital eventually get out to Seattle to get an John Malone and for him decide. I was the right person to come here where there was a lot of things that were available to fix. Initially we got some early wins and to have the perch so Microsoft needed my skill set at the time. They really didn't have it. Liberty could use my skill set but I could have end up someplace where a lot of smart people could have filled that role or I could have been someplace where your skill set wasn't necessarily so highly valued so there's a lot of selling yourself short by saying it's all lack. I look back at my business school class. A lot of smart men and women smarter than I am or accomplished who didn't necessarily ended up. Lisa metrics having same mobile success some degree. That's the luck of. Where do they end up? Where did I end up? What was needed at the time when we ended up at that spot right? Well let's talk about how you got the liberty then so Dr John Malone needed a CEO of liberty media. How did that come about? And what came to be where it was attractive to you? I'd known John. Since ninety three and he actually been on the board of three sixty networks investor and three six networks. I've lost all his money there. But he's still talk to me. He said I was good at generating tax losses in early two thousand five or mid two thousand five. I got a call from mutual friend of ours. Who said John Malone wants you to come liberty? Do you want to talk to and you. At Oracle the time Oracle. I only been three. I said sure like to talk to John. I mean I'd known him for twelve years. That Point Pete served on a board company Iran so I knew reasonably well. We'd actually talked about various ways we might work together so John Calls Me and says who could run liberty and I thought he was going to call about me. I said nothing comes right to mind. I think about some names so I called the mutual friend back and said well. He got me but he didn't want my name. He was asking for other names so and the friend said he wants to. He wants. He's just playing with you. Then he called back and said you know maybe you'll be the guy that's pretty funny. Well played so will happen so I joined in November of two thousand five as I there was. I think a bunch of relatively low hanging fruit of things to fix clean up and you know in any job. It's always get some early wins because it gives you credibility to make bigger bets. Yeah did you have a an understanding with John when he became? Ceo of how you both would divide the responsibilities already just all in it together. You were giving us a lot more credit than I think. The only thing I remember John Offer. Let me send something like the future is what you make it or something like that. It was a pretty open canvas and if you look nobody would have predicted enormous change when I joined in five today. What liberty looks like and nobody would predicted where we would go right now in the John. Ri- nobody but was there a mandate was there a vision or an objective or again with more of a two smart people getting together and try and make the right investments. Look I think John Appreciate? I'd come out of the technology side and had some familiarity with that in. Oh five if you WANNA look like a relatively. Technically strong person. Coming out of Microsoft helped compared to being traditional media players. I certainly wouldn't put myself up as a technology expert on a relative basis. That was helped. Yeah we'll plus you understood. I feel like capital structure and CFO like dynamics which would help with tax and shareholder value. And not just strategic deal making. When I was at Microsoft we did all these Put ones we were buying our stock back and we were selling against it and it was sort of a we knew we had big tailwind that we made up a bunch of money on this porn. And it's because it's in your own stock it's tax free. John loved that it was fascinated with that so Chinese doughy say the put warrant guy or something like that he was always happy because that's John Malone kind of play. Yeah well how do we think about liberty media because from the outside looking in just taking a eagle in the sky perspective for a second is unclear whether liberty media is a public private equity firm? That just happens to invest in media assets or Obscene Media Operating Company or to leveraged bet on the industry what is Liberty Media and hatchery benchmark or is it just a unique animal altogether book. I think you could say it's all three of those things in various times. It's malted when I first got here. We really owned very few assets in total on. Qvc was the only one we have any scale. We had a bunch of minority positions. And we've actually swapped for control or more influential positions. Barwane more positions over time. We'd like to think we try to do it. In this parts of the industry with our history as a company with John's vision John's expertise and contacts. We've had some insights into perhaps where we thought things would do. Better and where we thought we'd get worse and been able to trade our way out of those hopefully not inefficient or trade. Are we in to the good ones? And so that's been somewhat of a bet on the best parts of media. We'd like to think from where we could actually make progress. You'd love to be some of these places but you can't get in any smart way so it's not like it's an obvious bad to buy the stock but we've tried to promote the thing to a more operating assets being happy also being places where we have a influential position but on the right side of where the trends are

"president ceo" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"The president CEO of the hardwood financial group and looking at the run down here I mean I'm fascinated with every aspect of what we will talk about today what are some of the challenges faced by successful professionals well I know there are a lot of successful professionals listening to the program right now and there are areas of challenges that even though these individuals are successful in their actual field they might not have a read on what the challenges all or that could kind of side swiped them we'll go over that in just a bit where our tax rates going and what you can do to protect yourself from the real possibility of higher taxes in the not so distant future also asset protection and preservation strategies how do you make sure that your assets don't get broadsided how do you make sure that you preserve what you've already built just to put this in a very easy context you work your entire life your entire career to build to build build build build this giant nest egg for the future how do you preserve what you've done so it doesn't you rolled we'll get into that coming up and also had a build your finances to whether any future financial storms and that sort of symbiotic with asset protection and preservation Bob it's great to be back with you in the studio Todd it's great to be here I think you nailed it on the intro you know the bottom line is is we worked hard to create what we have to build it and we have to make sure that we also protected so it's going to be there when we need it you know this could be protected from stock market it could be all these other things that could potentially de rail your plan and a lot of people are they they they manage your finances themselves other people have professional financial advisors helping them do it but the goal is the same for everybody I meet Todd why why would a person hire a financial adviser why do you want to put a financial adviser on your team what is the goal well for me the quick answer is that an individual is very good and there are experts in their chosen field but they might not be an expert in finances so you want to bring in somebody who deals with this every day and knows how to manage all of the the ups and downs the highs and the lows that you know we the normal late people might not be aware of from a financial aspect yeah I think that's a great way to look at it you know if I if I'm a little sick a little sick I might go to off CBS or something I'm not advertising for CBS but so it all kind of my my wall grades and I go get a Cup last for but if I'm really sick I'm going to go to a professional because my health is important to me it's very important to me and so I will give finances the same way you go to a financial professional you engage a professional one because they better be good at what they do that's their profession as you stated but not just that their job is to keep you financially healthy think about it that way you know some people say well I hired an adviser because I want to make a lot of money you know I'm going to go to the casino and put it all on red to try to make a lot of money but the reality is is is we're investing to make money that's for sure that's why you invest but a good financial advisory holistic financial adviser their job is to keep you financially healthy to help you make money and sometimes to protect you from losing money and so you've got all these things in my book I call money statues you have all these things that could affect your finances and so a good financial adviser was a quite a financial plan and a good financial plan is going to address all these things that might keep you up at night you know all these little concerned so if you think about it for a second what is the number one financial concern that most people have I mean what is it that keeps you up at night regarding your finances the number one concern across the country it changes a little bit but it's typically related to the possibility of running out of money that I don't have enough savings to either retire or support me through retire retirement or whatever it is but the number one concern across the country I think this will resonate with a lot of our listeners is do I have enough money or will I run out that's number one that you know what one of the things you just said was what keeps you up at night I got to say in the crazy world in which we live these days there's a lot of things could could potentially keep people up at night Bob yeah know for sure and and what are a waste your finances you know what's in another concern is two thousand eight was a long time ago once the next correction or all this crazy politics is going on how is that going to affect your finances you know these are things that bother people I health care costs of a if if I need I get sick in retirement I'm older I need something I don't want to be a bird to my children that might keep people up at night you see it all of these are issues that sun around your finances and if you have the right financial adviser you're going to feel comfortable that your planet dresses these this is a very very important concept your successful stay successful throughout your lifetime it's it's a very important piece what's the bottom line is you're getting attacked from all angles there are so many things happening you need a financial professional to help you navigate because this is their area of expertise this is what they're trained to do because you've got a lot to worry about in your chosen field in all of the the facets and factors in your life I agree with that do what you're good at and get professionals to help you kind of the the metaphor we use with the position earlier right if you're really sick or are you wanna make sure you stay healthy you go to a professional to help you do that and you do what you're good at and that builds your team around you I mean what we're going to talk about today this is all important stuff we're talking about some of the challenges that are faced by successful people we're gonna talk about taxes I mean what I know we're all frustrated we feel like we pay a lot of taxes but the reality is is this is a fairly well tax rate and it might be going up sometime in the future and so I want to talk about those things I also want to talk about the fact that two thousand eight was a long time ago and we have to start thinking about what would we do how would we protect ourselves if that happened again these are all really really big deals and so let's start by talking about what's going on in the markets let's talk about the markets real quick markets have been going up I hope everyone is making money but the markets are super volatile I mean it's like a roller coaster right now there's a lot more volatility I mean certainly more than we've seen and and ten years over the last years and part of that might be driven by politics other things but here's the thing about the markets companies have all tax rates that's great for companies that make some more profitable are there earning reports are good companies are doing well right now people are employed spending money so everything is really really good we would expect the market to go up why are we seeing all this volatility why why are we see the market go up and down like a yo yo well I think a lot of it is uncertainty the market doesn't like uncertainty and where's the uncertainty a lot of it revolves around politics right you mentioned that earlier what a crazy world were and you know and a lot of these decisions are going up in I happening up in DC certainly affect the stock market and the stock market's looking forward to a wall how would this affect how would that affect it what the heck is going on here and that volatility is affecting the market but it's also affecting investors and so you've got to think about how to navigate through markets like this again your successful you've made money you want to keep it but you still want to keep making money as well and so it becomes a really complicated problem and I mentioned earlier if you have a financial adviser or if you hire financial adviser their job is to keep you financially healthy and part of that is understanding what drives markets in getting through these challenging markets but also not all financial advisors are created equally folks there is a vast difference in advisors and what they bring to the table and frankly how they advise you and what assets what tools were resources what knowledge they have at their fingertips and the truth of the matter is there are many individuals that are investing they have an adviser they have a broker and they're not always getting the best most introspective advice Todd that that was I mean I was actually you know the reality is is that you know your advisor he's a watch out for your best interests and not the Roland and they've got to understand how the market works and if you're not getting a good result from your adviser if you're not happy or you don't feel like that they're really taking good care of you go find another adviser there's plenty of good advisors out there for you to work with that can create a good plan for you the reality is is there's a lot of challenges out there that we need to overcome one of all is the politics the the volatile market another one is a prospect for inflation you know what are our country always a lot of money we've got a huge national debt we printed money like crazy just to get out of the two thousand eight crisis and eventually this may cost a lot of inflation but even today we have inflation how you do your honor what gas prices were back in the nineteen seventies the just just our listeners think about that think about gas prices are twenty seven cents yeah that and I remember the gas wars that we stand in line somewhere to save two or three cents a gallon you know back then twenty seven cents a gallon right again it was you know before or after the oil embargo and yes you know I remember seeing the signs are I don't remember necessarily as a kid what the prices were but I've seen photographs and I've seen signs at the gas stations that show those unbelievably in a low numbers and then of course also you know after the crisis hit those huge long lines and I remember all right and even days for life yeah that's right because I was a kid back then I mean when the when the Arab oil embargo was on and gas prices shot up here in the country and the lines were absolutely insane I I remember that so my age would have been I I think I would have been about seven or eight years old yeah and I I just remember my parents talking about all right and even license plates and and and waiting in line I mean crazy times well gas one from about twenty seven cents a gallon out to about seventy five cents a gallon out today I'd love to see seventy five cents will back then that was a big job I mean that's almost a three hundred percent increase in gas prices we're nearing the end of the segment when we come back I want to talk about inflation what you can do to protect yourself from this because it's important it's part of a plan so what come back into the next segment let's get into this inflation just a little bit deeper I really want to introduce you to all of the Hollywood team understand the horror would weigh the Harwood method you know there's nothing better to do this then to get your copy of Robert Harwood's book investing for retirement the ultimate guide to not.

"What you're talking about And you don't. Economists have a reputation that they make forecast to make us rollins. Look good but the truth. Is there a science and you know what is is happening though is that with for example You know crypto currencies That's changing you know. Some of the technical aspects serval monetary policy so we need technically competent people who understand that a central bank where they don't understand Eh blockchain and and you know crypto currencies. You know how those are going to affect the economy and the economy is is reacting in different ways but basically basically what I feel is that the economics gave me a methodology. And I it You know I don't. I'm not very never was very dogmatic sort of ECLECTIC. They can in my beliefs of different theories. And if the data or the circumstances change I'll change my view and use a different model so so you're always testing that but I'm a big believer at least for me. It was very useful and I I needed that formal training to have a more discipline train of thought so I'm perhaps the recovering economist. But but I do find against against especially when you're dealing today with the sort of fluctuations and currencies and economies in trade. Rules It it's really been a for me me personally. Invaluable help you very much Andrea Goo Goo Ski. Thank you so much for taking time tech innovation.

"president ceo" Discussed on Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)
"Expand your reach in innovation capabilities from perspective as well. Yeah that's a great question. I think nowadays Really going it alone is very difficult companies. it's very difficult because the digital digital transformation is really changed management to change people's mindsets and it's hard to have the technical expertise in the areas right so you really have to partner with people. Yeah so we do have Various Technology partners that we're working with and I think we'll develop much further. I think internally it's really part of this change changing the mindset to realize that this is a little bit like it's going to make your job easier because there's a great fear that we're all going to be replaced by computers like hell the make all the decisions is a little bit. I it's not. I don't see that in the medium term. We're going to have any of that. It's it's really like you're going to have have at your fingertips information. There will allow you to make better decisions so you know when we talk about Ai. The way I look very simply a is just it's basically a program which modifies itself based on results. That's all it does is continually improving itself if you're forecasting the weather it's it's wrong in one direction. It will make an adaptation But that's very different from again. You know doing all the things that you do in your job op so you know certainly in our business. It's going to be that human Computer action that if you optimize its best so so. It's very important to make your employees feel comfortable with that and not see it as a threat but actually as an aide If we think about our own jobs I mean without the connectivity that I have today My job would be very different out. Need a huge staff because you're basically connected twenty four seven with the whole world and you can read memos you can call people up. You can have visual interaction with them But it's makes it a lot easier so you know it's it's hard for me to imagine going back to the old days you know. That was an early adopter things like cellphones. It looked like a brick and they didn't have much coverage right and and thinking about how I operated. Then today's like. Wow how did how did we get places this is before. GPS right so it becomes part of your life but there is a important change management of Getting companies to accept this and getting them to accept to know that look this digital company is better than you but you're better at knowing your customer. Let's work together. And the last say is the importance of data that we have an enormous amount of data we own companies that are one hundred years old one hundred years of the data that we really aren't using you know to to the benefit of customer in and our benefit as well so that's also going to be. How are we going to mind this data to create more value? That's very interesting. One of the things that You establish really aggressive carbon reduction goals which you referenced before going from Sixteen Not Percents On on coal power to thirty percent I believe you said And you became the first publicly traded company to issue a climate report in compliance with the the task force on climate related financial disclosure and. It's interesting I obviously in some ways being virtuous become part of your strategy and documenting that version. The changes that you're making that are Sort of going more towards renewable is a big part of our conversation and so on. Talk a bit about why you wanted to be I. I Y you The advantages of being ahead on this you know there. There's certainly probably the cynics would say that there are advantages to being a late comer to that because your so taking advantage of all of the traditional means of doing things but I I think that this is a very values driven company so the founders really established like five values and it was very interesting on their first public offering it actually listed as a risk. Say We will we will I. You know think about our values therefore anything else in the it was interesting bankers. Make them put it as a risk. I don't see it. I think it actually helps avoid risks. So it's values driven so that was easy the company was in a very You know values driven and people wanted to do the right thing What was difficult? was realizing what you were very good at Is Not the future in a so. For example we were you know in some coal technologies the best in the world. And it's like well that's it's not going to take us into the future. How do you make that switch? So that was Important on some things like it was the A It's a task force on climate disclosure DC DF CD the first US publicly listed energy company. Come out with it. I think part of it is view of that risk so this really looks at in light of climate change How robust is your business? And I think that's part of this. Risk Mitigation Strategy that. You know you've got to look at risk from many angles into trey easy to simplify it and say well. It's geography or technology dodgier commodity. It's all of them so I if there's going to be climate change you know. How robust is your business to that climate change so I get the the basic entrepreneurial wants to do good DNA of this company made that easier. What was harder to say? We're not going to do what you're good at. We're GonNa do something completely different. Now what is we are also the people who feel responsible title for keeping the lights on so sometimes our messaging is more difficult because it's much easier to message if you're just one hundred.

Yes, our chapter southern about a suits, the four counties Clark as Morell the Lincoln in nyc county, and we grant locally one hundred seventy five wishes a year on those are all kids that are from the southern Nevada area. Sometimes a little bit from Utah a little bit from Arizona if we are closer to their hometown. But we also have about forty forty five kids that will come from all over the world of their wish granted here in the city, and that's separate from one hundred seventy five kids that are local that we grant wishes to really should you work with. Well, I let's let's go back to the question because I asked you doubled questions. How don't do that? I know how did you end up here? At make a wish. So I spent my career I started off in on the for profit side and dabbled a little bit in political fundraising, and a friend and mentor introduced me to the nonprofit sector. This was about twenty years ago. And I fell in love with it. And my career was then probably the next ten years in the nonprofit sector, then I decided to go back into the corporate sector and then make a wish was looking for a new leader. And I had some friends who were on the board, and we were supporting the organization in the role. I was playing at cash America. So as familiar with make a wish, and of course, this love the mission. And always said, I would go back into the nonprofit sector, but I had to absolutely love the mission because that is truly what keeps you going every day. And so I threw my hat in the. Ring, and I had to interview for the position, and it was pretty intense, and they made me the offer in this was five years ago and haven't looked back. Yeah. What was that interview process like any go into little more detail? Yeah. If I can remember five years ago. Yeah. So I I met with they had a a an interview committee that was put together it was made up of some local board members Representative from our national office. And then there was someone from another chapter. Chris was with our San Diego chapter. He's the presidency EEO. And so. Probably a team of six that had a series of interviews. So my very first interview was just in a boardroom asking me questions about my experience, and my understanding of make a wish and then I had to do a forty five minute presentation about what I would do in my first ninety days. So they wanted to make sure I understood where the organization was and the challenges it was facing 'cause we were in a bit of a challenging time for the organization, we were only granting Seventy-nine wishes. And so that presentation had to really convince them that I knew how to get my arms around the work in ization in the first ninety days. And then after that I met with a couple of their staff members. And I think there was another interview somewhere in between there with the board members in that interviewing committee, and there was probably I think three or four finalists and ultimately. Yeah. I was selected and it was it's been a great ride ever since here. You are carryanne five years later. Yeah. He tell me what the differences between the national organization and then the local chapters, so we're a federated model there sixty chapters around the United States, just like mine that are granting wishes all of the wish granting happens at the local level. The national office really provides us with are operating agreement. So each chapter has their own five a one c three so independent we ever owned governing board or responsible for fundraising amid managing the organization with the guidelines and standards set by the national organization, and they really are the ones that manage our brand make sure that we're all doing things consistently were protecting the brand were up there in the top one hundred global brands as far as recognition goes. So. A pretty important asset for us. But they also provide support in different areas like fundraising marketing and IT, and they're really just a let's say just, but they really are a support mechanism for us to make sure that the chapters are meeting the potential of their community make sure that we're we're granting the wishes our vision is to grant every eligible child's wish. And so there's a lot of mechanisms that go into that. How do we find these children? And then making sure that the quality of the wish is meeting our standards. So there's certain things we can and can't do from a wish granting perspective. And they really govern all of that. They also manage our national relationships and our celebrity relationships so from celebrity perspective, if you can imagine there's sixty chapters around the country, and if sixty chapters were going to. Michael Jordan asking for wish to be granted. It would be pretty unruly. For Michael Jordan's team to handle all of those requests coming from sixty different places. So years ago, they decided to centralize that. So if there's a celebrity request the national team takes out request in sometimes we might have six or seven kids experiencing the same wish and they maintain the relationships unless it's a local relationship than we worked together. So the Vegas Golden Knights are good example. Now that we have our our professional hockey team the request will go into the national office. And then they will send it to us. And we will we will set up the wish experience and kind of broker the relationship between the organization and the vagaries Vegas Golden Knights. Okay. So that helps everybody maintain some continuity around relationships and not having multiple requests going out at one time. And then from a fundraising perspective. Allegiant is a good example of a national partnership. So technically, our national office manages that relationship because they fly kids all around the country, and they have a snack pack program that if have you ever flown Allegiant yet, they sell the little kid snuck, Pat comes with wings, and a dollar of each sale goes towards make a wish and then national and Allegiant will decide how that gets divided up among either the sixty chapters or sometimes just in the territories in which they operate so national will maintain that relationship, and and then we benefit from it. So those are the types of roles that they play and we're really fortunate. We just got a new CEO and national CEO Richard Davis who is the former chair of US Bank. He retired and decided that he wanted to do something in the nonprofit sector and not really retire. And so we're all really. Excited about his leadership. And and what's to come for Mako ash as an organization. Okay. So when you get if you have a fundraiser going on here, let's see here in southern Nevada and Las Vegas, all the monies that are donated. Do they go here to this office or does everything go to national no in all states here? We'll be that's gone to now. I think and then as far as the leadership goes what what type of support are you getting from the national office? So I get a lot of support from not only the national office, but fifty nine other chapters leaders, you know, I always say it's our in D rip off and duplicate. So we don't start anything from scratch sharing. Best practices were all doing the same thing. Essentially, we have some nuances with our community. But for the most part, we're all doing the same thing. So it's sharing best practices. We've got people in the organization who has who have been around a lot longer than I have people in the organization who are much smarter than I am. And that men. Torch ship and commodity among the chapters is really valuable. I came from a nonprofit that was just a local independent organization, and it's very lonely being with mak- wish it's been quite a bit of support from a from a people perspective. Yeah. So in
