"Clubhouse get you. Get your like very cool awesome. So that's a great Conversation log tell the story but at any point feel free to interject. Ask questions so i've been twenty eight. I live in san diego california before the pandemic happened. I was living in san francisco california working for cisco the it company. I started there when i was twenty one. I got into that company via an acquisition. Dan started at the at the start up. They got bought by cisco fast forward. Six years i had moved up the corporate ladder. And i had a very good job leaving a global team very humble. Have the opportunity in the hard work that took to it. When i was a home during crunch the virus taking care of my parents you know we all have to work from oatley in moved myself from living in extra stairways mad expensive to san diego on the beach. Don't need the live city light. It's not the same but through all this in the corona virus style. Podcast on my own youtube. Everything got me thinking. What is life like. On the opposite side where it could be more of entreprenuer or learn in back the startup life where it's not the corporate ladder corporate environment so i've always been interviewing people with that mindset on my own podcast and it's been something in the back of my head but that pre face does that all make sense parenting awesome so then they continue the conversation. There was a room in the clubhouse called shark tank. Our clients are tank. Tv show with marquel those people they were doing that in clubhouse and they would get the thousand two thousand people night to listen to this room and it would be thirty the for the on preneurs investors things like that they bring people onstage to pitch them their products their businesses their ideas if they would do deals on stage in this room would go for like four or five hours. It was so much fun to listen to like. I love shark tank tv show. I love the entrepreneur spirit so like it was fun however i don't have a business and i don't have an idea like that so i was like i'm never gonna go on stage and try to pitch them because i don't have it. It was a friday night probably middle to end of january. It was a rainy night. i wasn't going out. I was just sitting on my computer watching youtube videos. Low key night and they were hosting guests. I was listening to the room and they are opening the room that night that everybody usually a theme the steam. This friday was anything. If you guys want advice if you want to invite someone to come on your podcast if you wanna just council anybody can come on. Do your pitch and then when you're done with your it and we'll give you whatever you want. So i was like cool. This is my chance. Invite people on my podcast. A leap of faith to come. Listen or come talk. And then maybe i'll get some listeners out so i go. I raised my hand. It took them three hours to bring me on stage so now i started at six. Pm when the room open. It's now nine pm. I finally gone stage. I'm like great. I'm gonna pick my podcast. I can't wait and i had this idea. I had the back of my head. And i was like what. Why never i picked something different. Why just do my podcasts. I feel like i'm under storm. My so what. If i worked for them like i had this idea of like. I want to get into this entrepreneur investor lifestyle. I wanted to come learn from these people versus. Talk on the podcast. I want to be in their life every day so instantly i wrote up a one minute. High level pitch basically sales pitch of why these people you'll hire me to work for them. Luckily and that are two hours for them to from when they brought me on stage to actually say my name. Randy's return the pitch. They're probably five people in front of me. You know they take ten fifteen minute conversation. They decide banter whatnot so it took them awhile fair enough and there were still thousand people in the room. So eleven o'clock like finally ran. Celebrate your turn to speak whether you hear the talk about. And i said hey you know what. I'd rather just say my pitch in go with it. So this forty moderators on. Stage of the forty moderators thirty. Six of them are entrepreneurs raiding people. Three people like me waiting on stage. And then there's a thousand people in the audience the like okay randy go deep breath and then i go. And they've kind of went like this everybody. My name is randy silver. I am twenty eight years old. I live in san diego california. I'm here today to not pitch you a business. I'm here today. It's not pitch you a product. I'm here today. The pitch you an outside the box idea and that idea is why you should hire me to work for you. I am a global manager at a top fortune. One hundred company by twenty eight. I have integrated multiple companies that they've bought together. I have lead a team of over twenty five people across four continents. I have over one hundred million in a are and under my team that comes in every year operational excellence. That will help you and your organization be able to grow the chief the heights that you need of every person in this company that you have is the doer. Every person company that you have has idea but every person in that company needs a doer to execute the ideas. Be that person to execute those ideas for you as a half for cisco. And so i i gave that pitch and sorry a little bit rafeh. Having given and since that moment and crickets it was radio. Silence for about five to eight seconds. F did i do bad. What did they about my app crash. I'm sitting there and then someone just goes this do this fake the steelers line like my god so call me out thousand people and i respectfully sir.

"How that works. Well actually really good plane to start a room. Maybe they changed a bit to three months ago again. It's a relative a brand new app. It's a year old to the really changing stuff weekly to try to optimize it. I would start rooms and if you have a second person in the remove you. It wouldn't show up on people's hallway in the hallway is the thing we can see. Everyone's rooms you click. And then you go to the rim and i would this be sitting there for like twenty minutes and nobody came into my room and i f- definitely had a emotional and toy. It might not popular that people not want to hear them talking about. You realize it's not you. The app isn't showing a room to people. Because you're you're not having people in once started hosting rooms with two or three people and then we got like fifteen twenty people coming in and the first five minutes fifteen twenty. Those people invite to the three people on solely grew from sixty. One hundred at one point This i think next part of conversation with five thousand people on it and it was so exhilarating to see that many people wanting to listen to the conversations that we're having bringing people on so that they can participate in back and forth and it really people just kept saying How you're hosting appreciate the value. The room was providing whether this is the best rooms on clubhouse because it feels like a family versus something where it doesn't fuel tangible to you lino definitely you're going to have I'm the look for you on there.

"So you can go in the rooms that you want to listen to people talk about but then take the next level you can then host your on room people will join you in your room and listen and you guys can have dialect about what you're talking about. If you don't want to talk to people you can sit and listen the room. So it's literally like podcasting on steroids. So awesome like minded people is. How long did it take you You know you go through the pages of light. Dumbbells rooms can be intimidating. You know it could be a lot of people though. Took me a while before. I raised my hand. You know. That was like nerve wracking. The reasons that i find and then i still have not both of my own room yet. How was that for you. Go ahead and dive. So i was actually the opposite. I hosted my own room and raised my hand. The first moment. I love podcast. I'm a huge five. Of course we talked about. I love this podcast. So i got in the clubhouse early january got the invite. I was hooked so quick. I spent like three days nonstop. I've actually was supposed to go on a date with a girl called in sick told her i couldn't make i wanted love talking to people about casting about sports talking to people about sales life stocks economy everything and some rooms. I was very active speaking other rooms. Something say round bitcoin. I really understand. Bitcoin lynch i was just there to listen and try to grow in the cool part about the clubhouses. You've found as well. I'm sure it's not about how many followers you have. it's not about. how many likes you have. It's about the value provide this diagram. You see someone's pictures like oh million likes on that picture like oh my god. That person must be like hot or famous. There's nothing like that on clubhouse so the value provide and how you speak to the person on clubhouse and what the what you're saying commanders and that's what's going to provide you people who when they joined the room when we're followers so that's what i loved about it. Was you know in the grand life. I'm a nobody fair. That mass person with a billion dollars million dollars instagram. But i could talk about stuff. But i knew in that gravitated people wanting to be part of my rooms and i feel like now have lifelong friends throughout the rule of the people. I've met we still talk.

Because i always put other people before me and your probably like oh this guy randy the this is all fake like no i promise you i am all about motivating helping other people.

You realize you're life sucks that much. More unless the one percent in you're able that like have fun and i'm all about positively motivating people and that is such a negative message. They put out on the world. Even if it's partly true it doesn't need to be sad. It's not something that someone in his stature should be talking about in front of millions of people so that at the start my podcast and youtube channel to do the opposite with he did share messages positively of people overcome adversity ever come challenges in their lives to be successful so other people know that it's a k. They can do the same thing. That's that's where my office started off them very often. But how how successful layer people do people take to it in. Have you found that it's helping others. It's been fantastic. Because it's it's all about overcoming adversity and challenges. It really is a wide range of subjects. The one that i just had on his past week. I had a therapist. Come on talking about how you can overcome the thought in your head. If you can't do it push pass. It can't do it. I people come on talking about insurance overcoming drug abuse.

I did happy thirty. Boo and our guest. Today is when. I'm really excited about. We've got philip penalties from cook ped- joining us today to talk about rapid experimentation and how they've transformed the way their entire product team worked together and what we've talked to a lot of the big names in our community. It's people like this. You know people who have a great story but haven't really broadcaster beyond their local product tank. Those are the people. I really really love to chat with definitely and fed organizes product. Tight with me in bristow and help me get at camp in both off the ground this year.

It's really nice to have a meal and We spent a lot of time together whacking on product. Thank and bristow but quite often. We don't actually get chance to just sit down and catch up or like talk to each other because we just always organizing product tank. So it'd be great to actually find out more about what you've been up to cook pets anyway and have a chat about that on the on the poco Festival before we get into doing right now tell us a bit about how you go into management. Yes oh that's an interesting. One actually graduated to university with a chemical engineering monsters and basically. If you're a chemical engineer you pretty much going. To one of three industries you go healthcare old feed manufacturing. And so i graduate university and then sort of so what was out there in the job market and realized that none of these companies that are in these three industries russia. Going to change the world will actually solve the problems within those industries Around the sort of time that companies started to come to the full that would technology companies in those industries. So for example testa Came into the energy industry that it's into healthcare and i was never really interested in Manufacturer so i basically decided to start. The talent chemical engineering and get myself into technology. So then what to the startup. Incubator university graduated from then that gave me time to work combining product and sort of threw myself in the deep end by salting. Somebody up myself. And i guess that's how it started and played with a low of lego as kids probably helped as well. What was it that you started. So it's time for the company that was social marketplace for small boutique businesses. So the idea is essentially. It was around the sort of tying that shock. Viable wasn't available on the market and smokey takes struggling to get online and then there was this kind of growing make movement product stuck at sea coming out and it was essentially that sort of idea of creating a marketplace move batiks but largely places with physical stores as well so we were trying to bring online flying into into place. I've heard the worst possible word for that was little fidget. Nice physical and digital is a terrible word fidget. Oh okay oh i it meant light. People just fidgeting around with things you kind of naturally gravitate towards the product roll band within an and kind of know about product management. How did you learn about his role. Yes so i think again probably a bit by accident. My brother is a software engineer by trade. He covered that side of things and he was going through. Found is then i basically he. He's a bit of towel so what used to happen is he. He teed wackle night and the thing that we've been working on the before then. I'd wake up and i basically have a of products and then spend the morning sort of working out what to do next. And then he wakes up at lunchtime and build the next version of it and then we kind of cyclotron say policy to his sleeping patterns. But i think will something that i've probably gravitated to already enjoyed talking to the people using the products in the people were trying to market to you. So that's probably how it will visit in in terms of how i heard about that. Just may be reading. Guess books not sort the thing that you got your first kind of foray into racket. Prototyping like annual fast role as product pass and then start in the defames also reputation. Anyway they tell us a bit about what you're doing now happen and then you know we can talk to you about so you'll Typing process that tennis about will added about is a company that's been around full twenty years. originated in japan and the company was set out to basically solve problems in the world around food and cooking and eating and in japan. Where a hassle nine so sort of eighty percents the female population japan used the productivity months. And if you say cook pat in japan you basically here. Yak in is still big in japan Ugo and pads and then a few years ago.

"randy silver" Discussed on The Product Experience

"And welcome back to you the product experience I'm Lily Smith and Randy silver hatefully. I grew up in the states and you were here in the okay when you were a kid did your favorite TV shows ever have something at the beginning where they said and tonight on a very special episode of Yeah but by. It just felt really appropriate for this week Sepah. Do you mind if I give it a try and I K. I show gave this week on a very special episode of the product experience we talked to Dini Jimmy one of the founders of the sleeping giants movement who are working to make hate speech unprofitable you know I I met her when she was running growth for proud pad which is the company that mined the product co-founders Janna Basta and Simon Task Run and I've been following her work ever since yes. This is a really important topic and I liked to intro. Thank you renting say uh regardless of your politics ethics or morals getting this wrong can have a massive effect on the way that customers employees suppliers and partners interact racked with your brand and your product and I was like to see that as product managers were accountable for the end to end experience of the product and that has to include how we live up to the values. The company publishes in the annual report the values that we have in the employee manual stuff you hear about on your first day in orientation. You really have to be thinking about this stuff all the time it. It was a great tap so let's get right to Dini. Thank you so much for joining us today. On on the product experience you know we know each other a little bit because of your background with prog head but can you give a little bit of background on who you are how you came to be doing stuff with sleeping giants and your background in technology and product Randy. Thank you so much for having me well. I'm happy about myself so I am one of the leaders of sleeping giants. We are a social media campaign that is dedicated to making hate speech and bigotry sexism unprofitable and I've been running it since on November twenty sixteen when I I went on Breitbart for the first time in twenty sixteen eighteen shortly after the elections. I saw these sort of shocking headlines that I you know they weren't super shocking to me because I've been hearing about them reading about them but hearing about them in the news but the thing that struck me when I went on this website was that it was being supported by ads that were from companies. I said I shopped with a trusted so I think some of the first few ads I saw her from like target old navy Sastre even 'cause. I've been looking at their conference for a while. I was just being retargeted. Kinda hit me like instantly that that this is how this website makes money so and actually it's funny because I was at prod. I was running our Google ad words. I was using a very small ad budget at the time so I was. It's like super in all about where I was always in their checking like where's my ad place. How did it perform you know like which which page performed better. What did they do on the on the landing page that I wrote you know so I was Kinda like familiar with the INS and outs of Google ad words so for me. It all just came together our like real quick and what I did at the time was kind of look around like I remember being in my room by myself and I was like am am I crazy like is this is it just me has no one else figured this out yet and turns out like no one had as far as I knew so I I I did the only thing I knew how to do at the time which was right immediate post a medium article I called it something like Hey. PPC marketers you don't wait to blacklist breitbart encouraging performance marketers to go ahead and just at Breitbart to their exclusion list to their blacklist. I was like no one like no. One's is GONNA ask don't worry no one's. GonNa notice you're not going for them and I kind of sat back and waited for it to go viral and it didn't like no one eight attention like was it had it all figured out so that was a bit disappointing but I think literally the next day it was like I remember waking up in the morning or something and I had a message from this account called sleeping giants so and saying you know hey great article. You know we're doing the same thing you should join us about. That's how I met not. He was doing the same thing he was on Breitbart for the first time after the elections and he had the same sort of idea yeah that I had but he was set on doing it anonymously and I also decided to remain anonymous so we ran the campaign anonymously for almost two years so you decided to run the campaign on twitter is that right so we have a twitter and facebook okay and how did you go about designing that campaign to to attract as many people as possible attract the attention of as many people as possible. We didn't design anything out. Stop we yeah we did not. We did the opposite of design we had no clue what we were doing and every day we would just wake up and like it just see what was you know like just actually at the beginning we would it was really just screen shotting pretty much every brands every Ashley saw and tweeting at the brand just it was just a very monotonous repetitive thing I mean it still is to be honest pretty by you know there was there was no plan. What what happened was that people started to take notice because this is all happening on social media where you can see you know the twitter account asking Questions Ping the company you can see the company's responding very quickly and people saw that this was making an impact. There were results coming out of this so what we did. Was We started a confirmed lists basically with all the brands that had said to us. Yes you know we we will be short a blacklist this we had no idea we were appearing on the site to begin with and then we throw up some instructions besides just do what we're doing and tweet at companies you know be polite and and just tag is in the tweet so we can keep track of things so people started to join. It was super easy thing to do. All you have to do is going to take this screen. Shot and people did it people. All people tag doesn't it one of the things I'm really proud of actually is that people never got nasty so it really was like polite almost almost like a letter writing campaign except with tweets so named any before we continue going too deep into your work with sleeping giants and how it works and and what we can do as product people to protect ourselves and and take care of ourselves in our products which is want to go further into your background so I met you when and you were a copywriter and you're looking at obviously brand identity and the use of language and and everything without pet. Where were you professionally when you I started working with sleeping giants. I don't remember you being someone I knew as overtly political yeah so when I when I it was at prod Pat I was head of growth and I was just plugging away on marketing stuff and I guess before that I was doing marketing for a customer support helped us software am both roles. I was sort of like absorbing a lot of information. I like to say that as market I don't know much I just like absorbed what other people tell me what. I learned that I spit it out in Augsburg landing pages or whatever value props in this not so I I learned a lot in those few years around how companies make decisions 'cause I. I was learning how customer support works how customer support works with or customer support fields feedback complaints in that sort of thing and how they funnel that into product like management how they funnel that in to get that onto the agenda of their leadership and so on so I kind of like I wouldn't say intuitive but it was something that I picked up along the way so I I kind of knew what buttons to push you know when I first started with sleeping giants and that has served me really well and when did you first see the impact of the work that you would admit sleeping John's so this is really funny because we were out to get cross attention or anything like that we that I was on a radar but what happened was just about like maybe ten days or two weeks or something. After joint it was December early. December wanted one of the companies that either is our one of our followers had tagged was Kellogg's the cereal company and Kellogg's came out like really really strong in their response came out. They made a whole like PR statement on it. They were like no. We're not gonNA advertise on Breitbart. We didn't know about it. We're we're going to go out and do an entire audit of our our advertising so we're not only not going to be on Breitbart anymore. We're GONNA CHECK TO MAKE sure we're not on any other. A sort of offensive Jacksonville sites that that we don't want our brand to be on and yeah I mean that was like those massive for us. At that time it was huge. I remember seeing an article in the Guardian that was really the first time in Breitbart like reacted so melodramatically day. They launched a campaign called Hashtag dump. Kellogg's walks a boycott of Kellogg saying that Kellogg's hates its reader is No one should eat. Kellogg cereal anymore and it was totally ridiculous but at at the time you know Breitbart. was you know people were watching what Breitbart was saying and doing it and just because of that campaign you know they got attention for it. We got attention for it. So that was our first big sort of milestone then I mean things are moving so fast back then. I can't even twenty sixteen ended. you know every single day were or things were changing companies. Were responding were adding to or less so it was just moving super fast every day and then things came to a head in March twenty seventeen I call it march madness because like everyday something crazy would happen like the UK government found out that that their ads were appearing on like on terrorist channels on Youtube so I think very. There's a bunch of different agencies that were basically Kley paying terrorists. It was like two hundred fifty thousand pounds or something was not an insignificant amount of money they found out that was a a big one but also Thomson Reuters Jaguar. Both of them found out their ads were on objectionable content on Youtube sube online all came to a head and at some point in March turning seventeen Havis media one of the biggest media agencies in the world world came out and said we're going to pause. That's like we're going to pause this was just in the UK but you know all the UK clients. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA PAUSE OUR ADS. which is a huge deal? I mean that is like millions and millions of dollars being lost every day. You know that's not business as usual and then the U K. The I think it parliament called Google to come testify about their their ads. You know why we're at this type of content and these companies for the first time these really really big tech companies had to answer like they had to. They couldn't just ignore it. which is what they wanted to do? I think that that was a real turning point for That was the first time I realized how deep this does issue really. was I mean it wasn't just the ads and how involved involved in an older you get very much your highlighting the problem and then you leave the businesses to sort of come up with the solution indeed the other wet then coming to you in saying. What do we do about this so yeah. I'm so we were never really involved in the solution. We were just I mean we still aren't I would say we're literally just a group of Volunteers Agus. An an are followers pointing out that there is a problem problem and what's sad is that you know small just mom and pop stores shops little startups in just people trying to do their own thing are are kind of in the crosshairs of this massive advertising grist dismissive..
