"And who, I guess, you know, does it report to? Is it kind of reporting to the CDO? So right now this data science center of excellence is in early stages. Right now in our nation, there are kind of collaborating with the data platforms and platform services. And bigger organization of data science organizations. And then we are trying to collaborate together to create the COE. So it's an illustration. It hasn't been that big that it's going to be a department of branch in so we are in the process of saying that how do we get succeeded? We are bringing in everybody on board. How do we make the Federated data scientists? So that's the main part of it we are working towards. So down the line, I understand as we grow and see a lot of adaptation and we are bringing in trusted AI trusted data concepts into the picture. So that's where the next steps is going to be part of it. That's really interesting. I think it's interesting that the podcasts interviews that we've been having and the especially lately. They have the sort of the nature of our conversations have been changing. The early days was very much about, oh, what can you do with AI? And let's talk about the technology. And let's talk about machine learning and different applications of machine learning and the patterns of AI and there's certainly a lot of that content out there. But most of the conversations we've had in the past year have been around people process, methodology, organization, change management, right? A lot of it has nothing to do with applying natural language processing another algorithm. Nothing wrong with those. There's lots of great podcasts. We listen to them too. Some of them are very long. About this topics, but you know, it's interesting. I think our audience really cares about this human side. The human side of making this technology is work, especially complicated ones that are highly dependent on data quality, where you can't just do some QA bug testing process and have your well defined sets of functionality tests. And it's like, well, I guess the path to the test is going to work. That's not how it works. And these applications that are very much driven by the data. So maybe sort of as a little quick follow up here before we start to get to our always the final question, Kathleen usually asks. And that's like, you know, are you are you sort of doing this kind of on your own or are you learning from others about how to deal with the centers of excellence, these change management issues, organizational side things, process methodology, kind of where are you getting your insights from so that maybe you aren't doing repeating the same mistakes, others are repeating, or maybe learning from successes, like in other industries like in the banking or fine or government or wherever else it's just doing it. So we go through a lot of blogs and a lot of market research part of it..

How China Could Win the Ukrainian War With Rob Spalding

"My former White House colleague former senior director for strategy in the Trump administration in the National Security Council. He is the author of several books. Stealth ward is the first. He's got a brand new one coming out imminently called war without rules. He used to fly stealth bombers. He's a general retired U.S. Army, I prefer to do the British thing. Brigadier rob spaulding. Welcome back to America first. Great to be back. Thank you. So we brought you into discuss the no fly zone concepts, whether it's a good idea, a bad idea, the performance or underperformance of the Russian air force in the last three weeks in Ukraine. But we can't talk about Russia without talking about the other big pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, especially China. Let's continue first the discussion of how they plug in to the Russian efforts, how the sanctions strengthen China's position of Vis-à-vis Russia, and this interesting statement you made that maybe China can't help themselves when it comes to doing something egregious, like invading another country. So first of all, the Russians have asked China for weapons to aid their effort in Ukraine. Prior to that, the Chinese have refused to join sanctions against Russia or even call out, call the invasion of Ukraine and invasion. For the most part, the talking points coming out of China are that the United States created this conflict that actually the United States in the west NATO provoked Putin to invade Ukraine. So when you look at this holistically, you say, well, we have the administration just came out and said some of the administration that the administration is looking at how to drive a wedge between Russia and China and they think that Ukraine might be the opportunity. And I'd read that article and I said, well, does that mean that they think that they can get a closer relationship with the Chinese Communist Party because therefore they'll stop supporting Russia and it just tells you how fundamentally disconnected Washington D.C. is from how Russia and China

Robert Spalding Reacts to Reports of Russia's Warfare Limitations

"One hour. I'm delighted to welcome back in studio one of my former colleagues in The White House, former Brigadier in the United States Air Force, former senior director for strategy rob. All right. I remembered it well. Brigadier spalding is the author of stealth war. He taught me a great deal about what we need to understand in terms of the global geopolitical threat environment. But let's talk about Russia. Let's talk about the events of the last 16 days in Europe first things first. What did you do in the air force? Tell our millions of listeners, you have the coolest job. As a B two pilot. B two pilot, the stealth bomber, I shared with you a study from the royal United services institute just a few moments ago. When you tell us what is your reaction, your take to the general media reports and then some of the special reporting that not only has the Russian ground force, not performed as expected, there seems to be some very tangible limitations on their air capability. A lot of unclassified analysis has said that they're not used to complicated air operations, usually it's one or two ground attack fighters, not large formations in complex operations. Do you have any comment on those reports? Yeah, I read the report. I don't disagree that when it comes to complex air campaigns, that's not something the Russians are going to be good at. That being said, you know, we have to be careful that we're not mirror imaging the Russians. Explain what that means in terms of intelligence analysis. Well, when we look at warfare, you know, we're going to go for and this is talked about in John warden's 5 rings theory where we talked about don't go after the population that tends to make them angry and if you're trying to get a political outcome, which you want to go after is a political leader. So we tended to move more into precision weapons and really we're trying to get the effects that we want. We want to achieve the outcome that the nation needs.

Okay, on with the show, where we're going to be talking about designing enterprise grade conversational applications. Our guest today, Celine, osika is immensely experienced in the world of conversation design. There's often job descriptions that get put out there. I know Ben McCulloch who's a conversation designer. You may well be familiar with him. Always complains and minds about the fact that jobs that advertise for conversation designers always ask for like 7 years experience. And there's very few conversation designers. Just 7 years experience, because relatively speaking, as it's now become a well-known subset of UX design. I know there's been really designers for a long time over the decades John bloom and Kathy pearl and Lisa folks are in that. But as far as it's rise into popularity, it's relatively new. And so there's not actually that many people that have a tremendous amount of experience, but Celine does Celine is a senior director of conversation design at 24 7 AI. And welcome to VX world Celine. You're part of it. Yeah, great to be here. It's nice to have you. It's nice to have you. So yeah, I was just saying that conversation design is almost seems like it's really kind of like emerging now as a serious design practice. As I mentioned, it's been, it's existed for many, many years, you know, go back to the early 90s and people were designing conversations for IVRs with very rudimentary technologies. But now it seems like it's get into the point where it's finding its feet as a serious design practice. Yeah, it's true. Yeah, I remember not that long ago maybe three or four years ago when we were posting positions and things like that. We spent a good long time figuring out what do we call this thing, you know, because it's just it's not voice anymore, right? There's a lot of multi modal on the channel practices so we didn't want to nail it down just with. We played around with a lot of different titles. We had interaction designer in there for a while. And then, yeah, somewhere along the way we turned it into conversation. I think conversational designer, and then yeah, now it's kind of I think a standard network. It is called conversation design. So it's a lot easier to get people now that they at least know what we're talking about. But still you're right. The experience though is limited. You know, we can't get a lot of people that actually have experience in conversation design, but have different skill sets from other areas. You know, we have a speech pathologist that converted into a conversation designer on our team. And there's lots of UX folks that have converted over..

Reaching Sales And Marketing Alignment With Brandon Redlinger of RingDNA

"All right. Here's the second part of my conversation with brendan red. Linger senior director of product marketing at ring dna brandon. Welcome back to the more tech podcast. Thanks for having me back then excited to have you back on the show excited to continue our conversation yesterday we talked about. Abm being strategic about who. You're prioritizing your marketing and your sales efforts and a big part of that is having your sales marketing team being on the same page. Actually driving some alignment. It seems like traditionally. That's not something that was easy to come across. I will quote glengarry glen ross or at least reference it. maybe this isn't a quote. Coffee is for closers. There's your quote but look it's always the marketing leads. That are the problem in. The sales team can't close sales marketing marketing blame sales and we never figure out who's to blame and that's the game that we play when we don't have marketing alignment. So what does it actually look like. When you do have marketing alignment and how the heck do you get there. You see a lot of people still writing about this still talking about it after all these years. But i think it's because it's really freaking hard to do because at the end of the day marketing cares usually. They're held to lead number or pipeline. Number sales is held to a actual revenue number. And i think a lot of the disconnect between cells marketing just stems right there. They're not actually measured in compensated on the same thing so for marketers. I do like to push them to be measured on as down funnel metrics as you can usually that's pipeline and then if you are held to a revenue number as well that's great and then also sales maybe they're compensated or comte a little bit differently not just on clothes one revenue but maybe a metric that it also aligns with marketing. It could be closed. I remember when i was in sales. So i actually started my career option sales for i got into marketing. One more thing. We have in common buddy but i remember the spreadsheet that i use to calculate my comp every month there was this gigantic sophisticated thing that i talked. A bunch of numbers and doing one of them was actually. How many leads that. I close that. We're passover so that actually aligns with marketings objective as well.

That president trump attempted to shrink now. It's worth noting that the tribal nations that originally proposed the bears ears national monument have made it clear. They want president biden to protect all one point nine million acres of their proposal. Not the one point.

US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration

"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

"Okay. So we've all seen greenhouses interviewed domino olen for example who runs the greenhouse at george mason university in virginia about how her facilities providing food and even spices to the university's food service and see greenhouses with just flowers like it were states and other properties and now we see cannabis plants being grown in greenhouses. But what about greenhouses on a commercial scale and ones that recycle water do not use toxic. Fertilizers or get more out of the acreage than tenting and outdoor farm would right. Well that's what my guest today says there novel. Indoor farm will actually do so. Let's find out how it works. I'd like you to meet jackie. Roberts chief sustainability officer at ap harvest. Jackie has been in the sustainability spaces. I said for probably twenty five years including in the same role chief sustainability officer at the carlisle group which is investment company and as senior director of the environmental defense fund. Or where. I first met her probably about ten years ago. I think it was right. She earned all her degrees from yale. Smart cookie that she is including a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and to help them manage degrees one from the yale. School of management and the other from the school of the environment without further ado welcomed green captions radio jackie. And thank you for joining us. I'm so excited. Thank you down.

Where they you know. where is it located. I chance in appalachia but give us a little more details. You know kind of what you're growing give us give us the proverbial thirty thousand foot view app harvest. I think is a really unique company in that are core product which is healthy vegetables is combined with a very sustainable climate. Resilient way of growing those vegetables and we're doing it in appalachia where the opportunity for job growth and economic development is really appreciate The the core product is a chemical pesticide free In in our first large greenhouse which you can see a picture of in my background but at sixty acres for those who can't see it Is a growing tomatoes and chemical pesticide free. Gmo free because the way we can grow in a closed system enables us to use biological pest approaches to control pests and disease and also a lot of trained workers and other interventions that can prevent outbreak. So we you know as a mother with three children knowing that what's coming out of our greenhouses is zero. Residue is a real attribute that i value. But how we grow it in your introduction spoke to it is we are very climate resilient in their storms that the that recently hit we had some employees that had trouble getting to work other people had to pitch in. We had one employee show up on their tractor to make sure they could get to work But you know we really did incredibly well in terms of being resilient. We had all the things we needed. We were harvesting on time stuff was getting out to the markets and it was a real testament to this strategy as an important part of the mix of different types of agriculture and When when we're growing We are able to use one hundred percent rainwater. We have a system of irrigation. That is set up where the rainwater is captured on the top of our sixty roofs it stored in a retention pond. And then we bring it into the greenhouse with a little bit of filtration through sand and you'd be late and that water re circulates. We don't ever a released anything into the atmosphere. The nutrients are put into the water and stay in the water until we need to add more. We can measure very precisely. It's a space where a has really enabled us to do very precise measurements and the plants. Exactly what they need. We do Nanotechnology with the water. Because bringing more oxygen into the water enables the plans to absorb the nutrients even better but all of that is is a closed system. And you know when when. I started in chemical engineering. The reason i went into chemical engineering is a wonderful professor. Who said if you care about environmental problems you should study chemical engineering because you learn how system works and where all the pollution comes from and how it's released to the environment

"They got to showcase skills that we may not have otherwise seen. If we weren't in a situation. Any long story short while yes. It's important to focus on your job I think it's more important to focus on yourself and the people you share your time with. I mean anyone that's sports. They know like your co workers are your family. You know my group team at the bucks we had a same. Individually we suck. But together, we're all right. Made. I'm even looking at a custom painting that Mitee made for me as a going away present with that phrase and. While it's meant to be funny light hearted like. We took heart the power togetherness and it's my daily reminder to just be there for the people that are important to you. Actually think. Okay. So let's dig into this because I actually think. A lot of times people will try to tell me oh I i. don't WanNa work in sales sales in my thing or I don't want to be cold calling I. Don't want to be doing this and even when I try to tell Mike sales are where there's a lot of jobs. But also let's forget about that for a second listen to the culture that you're talking about listening to the environment you're expressing and sharing. Like this is a great work environment and people like don't realise, don't understand how to cherish what it's like to work with this sales group like this is so supportive. But also like think about the things that you just listed off like that's fun like what kind of jobs exhibit that kind of an atmosphere culture like how important is it for you as a manager to keep pushing culture as a part of the workforce? It's everything. I. Mean You. You can't create culture. You can hopefully create an atmosphere where happens on its own. And I mean, yes, we're in sales. So we have quotas in deadlines, angles that we have to hit, and there is a stress that comes with a lot of rejection In. So we know that so you have to counter it in. You have to bring people up in boost up, prepare them as much as possible but you also gotTa make him laugh. And you gotTa reward and recognize people for doing good work and sometimes that is like straight up just giving rewards acknowledgment. Sometimes, it's doing something silly and fun. And I think if you can find the balance between the two, you're going to have an environment that everybody wants to being a nobody wants to leave. I mean even during. A situation like this, where times in be tough, they can seem overwhelming You also have a sense that my team has now back and they know got, and we're we're gonNA get through this. Let's finish up with this. The final section of your article you talked about a commitment to act, and you also make clear and that your your suggestion to control the controllables and I think that's important concept. It's something we talk about a lot and stress as well. How important is that idea in your mind to stay focused on what you can accomplish versus what is out of your control? I mean I can't stress that enough. Let's think outside a sports for a second. There is so much happening in the world right now with you know health and safety concerns in job loss, financial certainty politics and social justice reform it can get overwhelming it can consume you if you let it. So. You want to control the things you can control to get yourself through it. I think it goes back to what we talked about earlier with prioritizing. What is important to you in your life in your job and then what are the necessary steps you have to take to make sure you meet those priorities? So my approach has been like if I can break those down into smaller things that I can tackle a little bit each day. I can get through each day. Yeah. Usually, get through the smile on my face in that can look forward to the day ahead. Yeah, I've been trying every day to give myself at the beginning today I. write down four or five things I can accomplish these four or five things today was successful and if I had much more than that grace or if other things come up and to handle so be it. But if I get these done, we're off to a good start at eight. Those kind of moments to say. I was productive today I was successful today and give yourself a pat on the back for that. It's easy to get overwhelmed by everything right now and when you focus on what you can control you just you feel like you got your arms around a little bit better right i. Also, give yourself a password wild. Afternoon. In sports nuts the definition I mean things come up all the time things change in Uganda pivot. So the four things I wanted to do today I'm not going to get to them, but I'm not gonNA. Forget about him either like I'll. I'm just re shifting what I focus on. Carless as great as I knew, it would be thanks again for jumping in here our first guest in our three hundred guests. So this is pretty amazing to have you back on again such great information for all of our audience and I guess I mean need. We'll have you back before episode six, hundred and.

"In episode three hundred and one of the work in sports podcast the returning champion is back Carl Manto and I were just talking before we got started that the very first episode of the work in Sports podcast was with Carl my Guy Carl who at the time was with the Milwaukee Bucks and now episode three hundred he's back what's up Carl how you doing? Brian to here. Yeah, Dude. I'M I'm still humble in I'm feel incredibly honored to have been the first guest in repeat guest and it's been three years since that since that happened I've just been so impressed with how the podcast has grown, how the work in sports community has grown. I before we get going I wanNA give a shout out to you like you have. True. Thanks a lot of people not only get started there with their career in this industry but people like me who already in it you've helped us become better at our craft through these interviews with three or is so huge shot up to you and thank you and keep up the great work that means the world and thank you for that. I'm old already It's funny. The world has changed a little bit since the last time we talked. Actually have some things to talk about. Okay. So for you, personally. You. The Milwaukee. Bucks for seven years and then in February you left to join the Chicago Blackhawks as senior director of group sales. Great move for everything's perfect. Awesome. But it's February and then march the world turns upside down. So you're timing kind of stinks. But what's it been like starting with a new organization in like this world world's turned completely upside down just a few weeks after starting like, what's that been like for you? Starting a new job during a global pandemic is certainly interesting. So I started the last day of February. So I was only in the office for three weeks. I only got to work to home games when the season was suspended though work from home order went into effect. And then the day my wife and daughter and I moved into our new place that was the day that the shelter at home order went into effect for Chicago so not only is a weird moving to a new team while this is having moving to a whole new city, and here we are several months later and we still have not explored Chicago. You know we've taken walks around our block and that's about it. Resulted workfront is you know that? I still have dozens of CO workers that I've never met or seen on a on a virtual call. and. Yeah. But like anything you adjust and like any new job to do your best to learn the priorities of the organization and what you you can do to help them with them. And while this is a new job arena this pandemic and working from home that's been new to everybody right? We've all kind of been in the same boat together. Yeah. So we're in a really weird part of the world for sales jobs specially in particular for a decade or longer even the my background is in sales for decorator longer I've been telling young people if you WANNA break into the sports industry looked to sales that's where the opportunities are and it's clear on our. Job where when you look at it to back in February, we had about twenty five thousand jobs on our job board, and about half of those were in sales twelve thousand jobs that were active and recruiting in sales I it various leagues, operations, organizations, whatever now we drop down to about eight thousand jobs in April where back up to sixteen. So the trend is getting better but only six hundred and twenty two jobs in sales, I? mean. That's a huge discount from where we were. What do what do we tell all of those young professionals guys like you and me who they've been listening to us we've been telling him to look at sales. We've been telling him to focus in this area and there's either no opportunities for them or they've lost a job that they started. How wh-? What should we be telling them? What should we be doing to help them kind of persevere through this? Let me you're absolutely right and. This is a weird time for the industry as a challenging time in teams are doing what they have to do to keep their businesses afloat in it has resulted in pay cuts, furloughs, layoffs, and a large percentage of us have been in sales. Some of the best sales people I. Know are now out of work and I'm contacted weekly..

We aim to share advice insider knowledge seasons, perspectives, and covered the journey of hundreds of people in their careers and what it's like to work at certain organizations.

This today is episode three, hundred of the show. All right. It's like confession. It's actually episode three hundred and one because my math in quite lineup had planned but don't get lost in the details on a roll here. Three years ago, and I talked about the journey into sports via inside sales. Today, we're talking about new important subjects like. Health through a pandemic group sales when there are no groups to sell to and developing culture in a world that is distant and through computer screens. Now, while those subjects may sound depressing I'm telling you this conversation is not. Carl is one of the most positive insightful and motivating people. I know he paints the picture of light with his words sharing ideas that can make this time productive efficient, and set us all up for future success and mental health. He highlights the good things like the positive culture of working in sports and how.

You know how that process could work. I'm curious like how you thought about building holding.

Wait beat the item. I'd be ready in belittle mm-hmm someone in America whereas it might think many complicated somebody else in the park and we think from that angle of simple for every month but also we do a lot of education to begin with we have. We are didn't make score market but B also ethics of temps alert anywhere so we started with a lot of information out there on how to practice themselves because of our sellers are small businesses. The business savvy people all the time because candle shipping potentially. They're thinking about awesome houses different factors from helping them kind of understand bed.

"Yeah and for for sellers I think is so interesting is at sees extremely simple transparent and secure but it's such such an easy way to engage with twenty six twenty seven listing fee and then you know five percent transaction fee and then the three percent payment processing and plus post twenty five cents like it's extremely clear to the seller. You know how that process could work. I'm curious like how you thought about building holding. You know the tools to support the education that kind of like additional things that get somebody to want to sell on at you. I think you know that first pieces is this easy is it secure is it. Is it transparent pricing. Do I know how how I'm GonNa make my money but then the next step on that is how do I become Good at this. Or how do I skill this. Or how do I improve my odds of being found. I think when we talk it's like that's but for second markets rolling building the seller marketplace. He will take a lot about because also it's not like these items already. The exists late sellers have a large eventually that they don't have one hundred items of these. I've done so it might have one or two so that that that's kind of their angle they need for holiday from R&B one maker as simple as possible but we also have peddlers all glow and what might be ready. Wait beat the item. I'd be ready in belittle mm-hmm someone in America whereas it might think many complicated somebody else in the park and we think from that angle of simple for every month but also we do a lot of education to begin with we have. We are didn't make score market but B also ethics of temps alert anywhere so we started with a lot of information out there on how to practice themselves because of our sellers are small businesses. The business savvy people all the time because candle shipping potentially. They're thinking about awesome houses different factors from helping them kind of understand bed. Do understand the largest shipping from keywords to SC or do how to best describe describe predict the best picture so we try to do a lot of education and a lot of material online but In some markets we we also also a lot of in person workshops and like not have international markets have been which is dedicated to cell. Oh goals and they go from city to city and coordinator workshops and kind of had sellers even even though we would like to use machine learning automation favorite things sometimes because we are human centered. ECOMMERCE company we try to do a combination of last question before we get into the lighting around here. I'm curious do you have any mentors or role models that inspired you in technology. Yeah I know for a bunch of our audience in specifically are female audience that you know. It's sometimes tough to find women in engineering roles and Things like that. Would you have any advice for those folks or you know advice to your younger self pursuing a career in in technology that the question. I think I've had a lot of mentors along the way and female boss ever but that doesn't mean lake a lot of a lot of fantastic managers. Because seek the offense Mike Mike Fisher this is Mentor and Slash manager had lots of other mentors within his even though they might have not been in engineering our product or Biz. Co So. I certainly have this go to on when I'm like. Why should I do next that I can? I can talk to both within Azi outside and I think I think they have been instrumental instrumental in my in my growth by even make my like the nonprofit I worked I worked in India Make it your since I left the company the end if I have any Career Growth. Are I still speak to my boss there so having this people might think king about this. It's not like one person is your go-to everything A lot of people I this is certainly not by by but I've heard other people kind of think of it. As like your is that you can go to different. People for raw different connotations is how I think about it and I certainly have trends family and work colleagues. Who make up this group for par defend things so?

"To provide them. This global black problem was was really will meet twenty but then once you get to see that in action how we doing this and really fighting you know I would love to. I would love to dive into that. And I'm curious areas like you know the engineering challenges from in a marketplace where you have you know have to constantly monitor supply and demand. I notice that there's like more ads on the platform for him now than the. Maybe I just didn't notice them earlier. So you know there's ways to kind of promote stuff which I think is super interesting so yeah would love to love to dive into that. The kind of thing corporately within though we can do internally with the offense and how our country of the world but we also also white making product decisions think about how it impacts our buyers and sellers at a distant union will give you an example even income so you know one of the challenges solve running my company is all the carbon footprint rightly so much so much shipping which it's carbon footprint and we were certainly one of the few naturally commerce companies to offset John the carbon emissions even within our offsets we think of energy usage informational energy. We also run like zero waste operations program so that's from like internally to making all the decisions familiar thinking of our buyers and sellers in front of 'em in late May impact me. How will on data Kiana customers and the world's largest is something active about only to the diversity versity piece a little bit Because so many of the folks on your platformer female you know how do you. How do you look at engineering? You know your team and creating creating workplace of diversity creating a product. That's you know something that you know. Your team feels is the best thing to kind of be in the market that that enables Your demographic sellers empires Russia answer like I said if you are settlers. Are The kid to them. If we didn't have these center presentation I think that'd be a shame will certainly very proud to have a culture. The values and prioritize scipion Shannon this you get some stance or ticket six percent of families that are Roman win midget if theme is also a man wrestled the board. I remember one of the only publicly traded checkup hiccup to have fifty percent of men on board and in engineering flirt. And he's been a focus and I've seen lar- implementing that that area Twenty three percent of getting theme are remain man. I think the industry average gain per cent. We are certainly more than double the industry average. But you know we still have a lot of work to do in Tom. Saw- ethnic diversity and I was sitting by at least one hundred nine focus areas was gender. And you'll meet alario. alario protests that area and still how it worked. Yeah what are some of the places that you look for talent. And how do you look for town. How do you look at building a diverse team team? It's a challenging. There is no spare power like go and you'll get that thousand you. Are you spend a lot of time on there. I personally Komo net plan pretty openly. Don't say like because I. I went to engineering school. But you don't think awfully congenial can only come from and our topic getting schools. Having them fantastic. We have a lot of them schools but we are also certainly the planning cleaning times and distinct programs which which helps people either engineering school are. They want to switch from something else. They were doing engineering now. So kind of keeping or open mind too strong and we also goes. I can go to conferences and a lot of people within Esi sweaty strong when we also make they were sitting part of our rules. Like car me like me and my manager who's the CTO We all Bacon raciest seriously. It's not something you go on the site it's part of our our multiples so you kind of look at it like this the summer driving in the land. So when that happens it's Yeah instead he acting you looking for them internally from order still engineers to negotiate but also partnering with a large organizations which can help. Bingo site was an And you I should say you're always higher now so if anyone If anyone wants to reach out will link up your your Info and the show notes here and they can make new. We're always hiring. Okay so I want to talk a little bit about mobile development versus desktop. You have a really seamless mobile experience. Also a really seamless desktop experience which is pretty difficult for marketplace businesses. I feel like especially something like at sea. Where so much of behavior you're is either search or like you know exploring in hanging out on their looking at different things? I'm curious like what is Kinda user behavior of your look like in terms of like the different platforms. How do you look at building? One versus the other one more in ten base than the other curious against our defense the stop using similar both of them in between them on. They're kind of putting example the issue that most people a c one thing that has been sheets are by an ad from the web our office more habitable by come on that you have to have a little bit high if they're going to take her to download that and then signed and so oh that brings a little bit of different kinds of Buyers but what I mean by that is these are the people who visit the Apple Act more frequency who make higher value purchases and who meet those more frequently so what kind of who want to hear them and I told them how we think of on Web web of bigger acquisition Tool Ban Nam APPs on Web A lot of people come to say from interest on our instagram bread seed. So they might be coming to the site for the first time and and if that's happening the kind of information we want to start to them the Kylo faucet mostly wants to show them. It's a little different from someone if they have board when I on it before he thinks about it at a high level from US thank you from technology and backbone was completed I think one of the beauties of where we are in you now society in our kind of social journey right now is such that instagram and twitter and facebook and everything is so image friendly right now that so product friendly I mean I I really think that had you know some of the best ways that people are are seeing cool things and sharing them and how they share them in mobile in. DM's on what's APP and things like that it's so much easier that you could see a product And share it and like it and comment and do those things. I'm curious like how much how much of your time do you focus on. You know that seamless experience from switching from either text message or DM's or things are social so that they can come right in to a TA and make a buying decision yet a really good question and something of with all the time because a lot of traffic. I think they're the we think about that. As of course the comment that I keep by peak but we also on the sand. What are they looking for work after you services and hopefully even if they don't make purchase instantly how to kind of I understand what they want so that we can determine the future are we can do them recommendations and suggestions to what what they're looking for and sometimes you call it these mission sometimes? Let me stay here please. You're planning where for example and Dan for yourself and you're buying reading decoration. I don't thumb Michigan's really and there is much easier if someone dummy from like you mentioned Samphan dressed and they were just trying to look at unique on things hangs on pinterest and they lied to a unique con listing on se. Which looks? I'm sure to them. But the median income things you and finding that might be no yes actually for us so I had some idea now through these social channels and how do we kind of understand what if it's a new user. What no harm if they can use it on? Whose behalf information on them? And how do we get them to it. Coming back is something. Yeah we actually when you think about going to the annual fatty process now.

Sir Can consumers and the team is out saying right now in private about like fifty percent of the company's engineering so Mike Group loop of nonviolent weapons near Sarrebourg people and so what is kind of a scale of of where it's at right now. That's a good question because a lot of people say it's yes. Wellman POB handmade things which netflix added. We are quite big About three million sellers I and over forty million active buyers and or sixty million listing so we are market. Missile goes accent unbiased and sellers but at the heart of it on the floor offered. We're also really a big time. Machine Learning Company to make the sixteen million unique listing accessible to our forty million plus fires it solarge he process over. You know me create overlay a million entries each day and we'd a and even we track all there at the heart of the absolutely sorry wh- what was how much How many billion data data point or what was it? Yeah so like I was saying you. How over sixteen million listing Balogh even today because it goes my tracking coming browsing we the whole kind of looking back with the buyers and sellers of begin data entry points a day? That's incredible what are some of your favorite things that That you personally love to see on there. What are some of your favorite ever products? I love it. This is the reason I work here. I was the finance a buyer before I wish I had still but I don't but I'm certainly are. I would say top category buyers but house in the like a year ago so I've been trying to buy furnish the house but as many things from FC as possible and I also have On Pierro ords might buy a lot of stuff for him from NC but I would say my favorite thing on it. I've also met so many sellers were so I think when I need sellers and and kind of talk to them. Many thing needed sports late in person meeting but we also have a messaging system and checks them which is their lives. That thank you talk to you. Use that extensively so recent P while I was handle Michigan is one of the Sierra de with APPs. I was kind of late in the night. And I'm browsing on my phone. My life should be clearly keeping an eye smart awkward by southern India and the growth in India in this league like the arguments really cool and then I started checking the seller and they sent me a video they make it takes them months to make there are and I thought when we walk with really cool at that point in time was really traditional outcome that they're making an offer dying are it's being late. Generation artists are making this in his family. The artists that was acting with and giving them the ability ability to have this global palm was. It made me so happy I would say like elsewhere like there is a story that excites them awesome. Yeah it's It's such a cool company end because you know it does feel like you know that mom and pop kind of feel because as you get to know who the seller is and you get to see their profile and all those sorts of things and because it's you know feels custom and bespoke in all of that but as as you mentioned. The technology layer is extremely robust You're working on a bunch of things. What are some of the things that you're working on right now? That can you know improve customer customer experience. That can improve You know the product you know for for both sellers and for buyers. What do you think that they're delaying? And I would say couple of four things I would highlight Using our mission learning for short to make make these connections happen when I told you like sixteen million listings in two point. Three million sellers warped makes it different and challenging from the data structure data perspectives. That most of their ECOMMERCE companies of certain extent control their own in mentally if they're not doing that clearly have packers lake clothing. You Have Leitner sizes which it's kind of parliamentary so that our merchandisers wrenching all these into the Oetzi because because it's all handmade unique item. That is normal kind of inventory. That can be clearly defined and structured very easily so that makes handling the data already challenging also interest in kind of using machine learning to understand people on what is their style because has been someone such as for something like if you actually kind of the correlation is mission learning much. Easier by Bennie understands stansky false title. What they're thinking that becomes more challenging so we are focusing a lot on that and I think he's fighting and the second space as I am ready? Executive orders is the APPS because In going from a more focused late marketplace to now growing significantly in the as we reported the team this year but also that's where the industry and the market is moving and or Ashton Ram arrested. The word is getting onto the Internet. Everyone getting onto the Internet by phone and kind of thinking about than saga or trying to solve for them and the both par- sellers buyers as a lane. Because I already engaged sample last you think of more sellers there and making the technology the access to them I think is interesting. Were there any challenges over the past five years that you kind of like didn't see coming. That's a really great question It's the heaviest so certainly already trusting journey kind of boy jining. The company went into this kind of getting started more but certainly not a public company and were double-digit engineers asked and I almost new late on the engineering managers by Sunday. who kind of killing getting the company? Who stripy Oh and now make make public company where the companies grossing significantly during during the time? You're almost four hundred years now and there have been many amy killing challenges along the way I think if I think of engineering challenges of hiding and killing the process and the technology let's see too many people. It's not certainly straightforward but also getting to child and pendle having this whole infrastructure structure and getting all of the cloud we're almost finishing and that's certainly been a large project but we also I think indeed some of the things much big for even kill whether being one of the first companies to build absolutely not eighty system and experimentation cultured. All those things have been a huge huge bomb lake doing that much before he wants killing but how many engineers were there when he started less than one hundred executives who were not going to make at the edge. I WanNa talk about you. Know being a a mission driven company in tech has has a clear mission. And it's something you obviously you said You love at sea and it seems like probably everybody. There is super passionate about it. Like what what is it that draws you to the mission of Ed see in do. Do you think it's important for engineers technology leaders to be working on things that they feel passionate about now. This is a topic deeply care about having the little bit off my own background you do. You context worldwide educatable mention. How the traditional engineering hang? Who and then shifting assize Bendel background by the Otter after years working engineer and and then will I wanted to kind of switch gears and see this was like right around Wendell? Financial Crisis happened. Like I want to do something. That's more mission Andrew Allen and have been back and worked my chance. I Went Back to India for nonprofit. They're folk oh couple of years. I went to Grad school where I have a master's in public policy and international development. So my whole thinking through this process was even the non-profit ny. Now Listen Brad. School was I won't be see how to use. Technology for international development are on social. In fact they will bad school will concentrate quickly. United Nations sent consonant ponant nations and a bunch of organizations that. I've got at so when I with going to graduate from Grad School. I was what I do next to. Pass me in all really missionary one but it also has to be fast. Paced and fundamentally culture has to be as strong that culture as well and it was it was allocated talented affirm that assigned by lower. Speaking about it it's like a natural manual and that's how I ended up by Esi and naturally good what I mean by that. Our mission is to make commerce human and it's not like a lot of people in back thing we all Wanna change the world. We all wants to like deeply missionary work but also walked on what I mean by that from all angles intrinsically our business like get an impulse lot of small business owners to run their business US online give them a platform for and to begin with the or four percent of our sellers are women and or if he person of the shops are single owners so for me. It's really exciting for a company rare ear. You'll let entrepreneurs running back was back. That's amazing I didn't know those numbers I mean. That's so many people that are being able to you know support income for their family by doing something that presumably. They're passionate about as well. I mean that's really cool. I know but that's not reading from me as not in from Musalo respect because it's also late late the seller I wish mentioning a stacking within India. That's that's.

"senior director" Discussed on WJR 760

"As senior director for the Detroit market for the national nonprofit enterprise community partners focussing on addressing the needs of low and moderate income Kylie also work for the city of Detroit to assist with the largest municipal bankruptcy in U. S. history and so Kylie welcome to caring for kids thank you we're delighted that you're here Larry I'm so glad to be here it's good to see you always so your career path has been very diverse some with some very exciting positions over the years so tell our listeners about your background and how these experiences have really position due to do the work you're doing now sure well I am I'm a recovering finance professional I spent about fifteen years total in the corporate sector I'm doing to her record numbers and budgets of multi million dollar company okay internationally traded companies and I decided I really wanted to utilize those finance skills to help people and I had no idea what that meant so what do you do you go to grad school and you figure it out and so I went to graduate school in New York received a masters in public administration left there and went to DC and that's when I first started to working community when I worked for former mayor out in Washington okay and I did that for about two years and it was right at the height of the financial crisis here in the country and I said you know what I want to go back home Detroit is home for me and do some good community work at home and came back and landed on my first opportunity at the United Way for southeastern Michigan and did that for a few years and as you noted in my bio I worked on the bankruptcy and I ended up with bomber group about two years ago this month actually wow time flies and so as you and I've talked about both of our career passes have included the United Way in our own home town of the trade so it's a good place to to working gain experience and so all of these great experiences over over the years and how do you think each whiner AS one stand out that is prepared you for for entering this new arena you know the one thing I love about bomber group layer is that we really look at all sectors to help and support our kids and families and so my very career path be it in the corporate sector on government nonprofit all of the roles have truly prepared me to look holistically and problems in the community and to leverage the variety of stake holders that exist in the community to help move it forward so I I think that every row has truly prepare me for where we are today with bomb group and how we look at helping communities through a collective impact approach and that's utilizing every sector to really get at the type of impact that we like to see for kids and families yes and I and I have to believe your finance background also helps yet from time to time just a little bit which I had that we're talking with Kylie Mitchell wells who's executive director of the bomber groups philanthropic efforts here in Detroit in southeastern Michigan and speaking of the bomber group it's relatively new to our area to the nonprofit scene if you will and can you give give us a view of how this dynamic effort I say dynamic because I know that it's evolving in in changing how was established from a national perspective and now how it's helping Detroit in in surrounding areas sure well Stephen conning bomber decided about four years ago that they wanted to use their philanthropic resources to be organized and they're giving they have been giving for a number of years but it wasn't a real strategy around kids and families they were doing things in the community of Seattle and they said you know what let's put a real strategy together so that we can have great a greater impact and so for years ago bomber group was formed and our initial office was located in Seattle but I also have an office in LA because of Stephen Connie's ownership of the LA clippers in the last office was opened two years ago with my hiring here in Detroit because Steve was born and raised here and we look at economic mobility as the key driver to helping communities and families allow we focus on education from early childhood to K. twelve we focus on college and career ready miss all in service of really helping to move families for him move forward and break down maybe generations of poverty in some cases correct it's also very very cool to hear another Detroit native go on to in this case world renowned success thank you Liane and then for Steve Balmer to want to help Detroit and mean and and you mentioned LA Seattle in Detroit so what's great company to to keep now I know recently you announced your initial grants made by the bomber group and so I was very impressed with that and can you talk a little bit about those and then maybe specifically about this these new efforts was signed a grace in that area of the community certainly so last November we made our initial round of grant making and it told about possibly twenty six million dollars in those resources primarily landed in Detroit but we are a southeast Michigan founder and so some of those resources landed in Oakland Macomb county a we focused on grass top organizations strike some of your larger ones like you ninety way we also looked a grassroots organizations like your sign I grace Gil CDC and we have landed on really focusing on neighborhoods that's one of our key areas of focus here in Detroit the sign I grace neighborhood as you know is in northwest Detroit Asti was actually born in that community okay that's what I was gonna ask so he was born there yeah he was born in that community I too have roots in that community and better so we said you know what better way to work in community than with the hospital system they are an economic driver we saw activity that was happening in northwest Detroit over the merry Grove area and our friends a crazy on the great work they were doing there the work that is happening in the grandma Rosedale area but sign I was kind of the missing middle and they've made significant investments in their infrastructure and they approached us about addressing the social determinants of health and so we started to work with the awesome leader over there to really look at a workforce development program to help I'll get families into housing there but then also to get jobs at the hospital absolutely so those are the social determinants of health impact all of us so having safe good housing and having a job to be able to provide for yourself and your family impacts your health in in there for the social determinants of health in certain and so we admire all of those things that you're doing and again we're talking with Kylie Mitchell wells who's the executive director of the bomber groups philanthropic efforts in southeastern Michigan as you and I have come to know one another you recently visited the children's foundation offices with your staff and your team we are all about those areas and groups of people that you just mentioned so children early childhood kids in grade school kids in high school young adults families really trying to be about wellness instance were an independent foundation now we love hospitals but we're really trying to keep kids and families out of the hospital by things like social determinants of health so a loaded question since I work for the children's foundation and I'm hoping that some day we might find some projects to work on together if not directly certainly in the same neighborhoods certainly I am see so many synergies between the great work that you and your team are doing Larry I with the children's foundation and we just really enjoyed our time with you learning more about the work that you're doing and all of the synergies that we have and certainly we see an opportunity for collaboration I believe in some instances we are investing in some of the same Ortiz and will definitely look to do so in the future wonderful as of today we now have seventy seven partners in a unity in the community is of a broader than it was so it includes another several sections in Michigan so we're delighted that we just added seven new partners to that list so we're up to seventy seven and I am sure that in the not too distant future the bomber group hopefully will be one of those of course so you can count on a highly thank you anything else you want our listeners to know keep up the good work on a good hello thank you working with you and I appreciate it very much that was Carly Mitchell wells.
