"So these fans are going to have to bring a proof of Covad 19 negative test. I think it's 72 hours, but I am not 100% sure on that. Yeah, they're gonna have to have a test before they attend the Knicks game first one February 23rd against Steph Curry on the Warriors, so it's gonna be on exciting atmosphere. And, you know, I think Curry is going to just try to put on a show. But the fans are gonna be so excited that they are gonna have to go to a doctor and, you know, go to a facility and get a covert test. By the way. Mark Berman from the New York Post of Freddie Coleman and Freddie and Fitz Simmons on ESPN radio. The ESPN happened since Exxon Channel 80. My producer Chris. Mitch and I were discussing this before we had you on. This is all the makings of a StubHub type situation where Christmas even said I got a covert 19 positive test. Positive right here. Right here. Now. You just need to take right here right here. I mean, how much had the New York bitch or anybody have to think about the people are going to get into their Maybe they enter Forge. Forgery to try to get into the building and watch a game, you know? Wow, that's that is a great thought. I wasn't even thinking along those lines. But yes, they could have right. Someone having a fake covert negative certificate. On, you know? Are these tickets gonna be scouts outside the arena? I will say I'd rather hear people shouting out tickets tickets, because right now, when I walked to the garden before a game, it's There's no next jerseys. There's no one walking around. I mean, there is a construction going on with Penn Station, but it is just such a miserable scene where there's just no activity around the good net. Forget about inside outside the garden, and you know how You know, crazy. It is outside the garden, usually It's kind of a ghost town and to hear people's scalping tickets again. That would be music to my ears, because that means we're on the right track in getting back to normal. How much is it been music to the years of Nick's vans that This actually looks like 18 that they may not make the playoffs this year Mark but looks like a team that you can actually see a bright future instead of hoping and wishing that it's not just the one your thing. It's amazing what coaching can do so many people may think coaching is overrated. And I think in baseball, maybe it is By the basketball and football. It's so so Big and Tom Thibodeau His starting lineup is the same five guys from West season not the same starters, but all five starters were on this team last season when they were horrendous. And he's stuck with this starting unit. They've had continuity. Ah, you know, truest Randall is played out of his mind. And now they add, Derrick Rose. It's gonna maybe You know, take a little while to get the chemistry right. But Derek and his debut, he looked very spry and he's a shot maker. He's a scorer. He's a passer and he gives them energy, so I think it's only gonna get better. And it's great to say, because it's been seven long years and now I think they're going to compete for a playoff berth.

"Chad. How are things today? Steve is great today looking forward to a conversation with our guests feels like a another guest that has a background is really relevant in twenty-twenty and we get to explore a company similar to our last guest doordash but in a slightly different Arena off doordash, you're right. It's it's going to be a really interesting conversation as you alluded to Our Guest today is calling Crowley. He's the vice president of customer experience at freshly and they are in the food Tech space and and really kind of the most in their own category. There are Weekly subscription service that delivers fresh gluten-free healthy Chef prepared meals in these meals are fully cooked. So all people dead. Do is reheat and eat. So when you think of it as you alluded to on the Continuum of Home Delivery, it's it's between doordash and our friend and and last episodes gas Anastasia story back and change their idea of of fully cooked meals delivered from restaurants. And then on the other side is something like Blue Apron which delivers you the ingredients and then you cook it and colon has had an interesting path to Fred. He's actually a published playwright and he started his career in the world of National Security working for think tanks in Washington DC and then he transitioned a customer experience working for e-commerce ticket company called ticket Network before moving to Freshly and he's been in freshly for just about five years now and I'm excited to talk to him because he's built their customer experience and support team from basically scratched and not having over 220 people and along the way he's the complete infrastructure of the customer experience including all of the structures of the procedures and and really the culture such ad. As we get into this conversation with calling. What are you looking forward to learning from him? I'm looking forward to learning from his creativity, you know, Colin having his background as a playwright you think about our previous guest we've got a DJ a jazz musician right? One of our guests had a background in Theology, and and today we have someone with a theater background, so I'm really interested in learning about the process that I went through that must have been a very creative process and building the CX infrastructure at freshly. Yeah. Absolutely. There's going to be a lot to talk about he's got so much to share about how he approached building this infrastructure. So let's go ahead and let's get started. Welcome Colin. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks is great to be here. Yeah, man, we're looking forward to this conversation. So it would be great if we could start out by maybe just having you tell us a bit about your background and what brought you to Freshly. Sure. Yeah, I kind of came into the customer experience space through a backdoor route. You may say initially studied history and political science and school and then I focused on what school security studies Worth US National Security. So it's going to have my my life working for a think tank or something like that cuz I like writing and researching and so forth. So I was down in Washington DC area and then ended up moving back up to the New England area because I'm from Massachusetts originally and moved up to help some family and I kind of divorced myself from any of the world of think tanks and so forth. So I ended up getting a job at the commotion take a network. Would you like one of the major competitors to Stubhub in the event entertainment in the event ticketing space and they were looking for someone who would come in and essentially do an analysis of their customer support infrastructure commend changes that would put it more in line with industry best practices. And the reason the CEO chose me was because I had the the communication background and I also had experience with The theater World cuz I'm also produced playwright. So I was just in the throes of getting one of my Works produced and really kind of co-producing that so he liked the the the blend of the Arts and the operational Logistics aspect of things off. So we kind of took a chance on me. So to speak and I stepped into this role and really dug deep down and learned my way through the industry and started to build up a team there especially in a customer support team and taking Network that ended up being about 14 people at its height and that dealt with certain higher-end clientele and I did that for about six years and also dabbled in some product management and things of that nature but was there too I moved to Freshly five years ago. So soon after the company was founded and we moved our headquarters to New York City and we just got in our series a and there was there's one other person in Customer Support who's staying with us as our senior training manager, but there was just one person there answering phone calls web chats emails Etc. And I was basically tasked with building up the customer support infrastructure from the ground up and Thursday. Really intrigued with the company and the product and just the excitement of being able to be a part of a company at that very very early stage. So I spent my first year and half so really until late 2016 just building the infrastructure of the team so high and hiring great people and creating a performance evaluation system and creating policies and creating tracking mechanisms for everything from customer satisfaction to customer issues and a training system and basically everything that you need for an organization to run smoothly. And then since then we really taken off we're home starting from 2017. We went from New York to open up a separate contact center out in Arizona and then we moved from Arizona to add some people in Maryland. And then Maryland we moved to add some people abroad So currently we have about two hundred twenty people in our customer support organization across five locations three in the US and two separate offices in the Philippines the little detours here and there we did some experiments and some other locations like wage. Africa and India so now I spend most of my time focused on some more overarching strategic issues and a lot spent in the technology space. So RPA and Ai and things of that nature.

Ebay Reportedly Getting Close to Selling Its Classified-Ads Unit to Adevinta

"The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Ebay is close to a deal to sell its classifieds and division to added Vinter, which is a global marketplace business based in Norway. It is looking like a cash and stock deal somewhere in the neighborhood of eight billion dollars. A shares of ebay are flat on this report. Maybe the. Investors are waiting for confirmation, or maybe this is due to the fact that year to date shares of Ebay up. Just north of sixty percent so. It's been a nice twenty twenty in terms of ebay share price. It has they're continuing to divest the the non-core businesses started with pay. Pal and continued with stub and this will. Leave, as it's activist investors wanted Ebay, easier to understand and more its financials more transparent, and if the activists investors are correct Dave unlocked value by pushing this strategy and this is is part of a winning strategy for for the company in the Stock time will tell but you know I I like what they're holding onto and I. Think they're talking about getting you know. Eight billion issue out of this, and there's some talk about expanding their payments operation. So as you mentioned you go back to two thousand fifteen, they. They spent out pay pal. The end of last year they strike that deal to sell stub hub and. God bless them. They were lucky in the timing of that because. I think they got four billion in the deal to sell Stub, and if for some reason that got delayed. Deep into twenty twenty, there's no way they're getting that amount of money. It's absolutely going to be a lower price so. Ebay got lucky in that regard. Let's go back to the activist investors though so. The activist investors want Ebay. To be a business. It's easier to understand. That there are more parts to the business when they have the classifieds business when the when they had stubhub. That kind of thing, it never struck me as any one of those parts of being overly complex. If. This deal goes through their basically down to the marketplace business, which shouldn't be hard to understand, so the activists get their wish there. Is that a business? Has a particularly bright future I I'm not saying it's doomed. It's not a bricks and mortar. It's not like they're storing up stores all across America, but I just wonder if the marketplace business in and of itself. Is An exciting attractive. Multiples growing business over the next decade. Well, it's a business where they're the leader having. Acquired all the advantages of first mover and having done a lot of other things right, not everything right over the last twenty years, but I think it's it is attractive. They're. A very relevant, possibly more relevant as people need to sell some stuff to get get through this period of time and those with money. You're looking to add stuff to the houses they're. They're trapped in so I think that they're getting more traffic and I don't see what you know. There are other companies that have taken a stab at trying to go after that business. and. They've really failed for the most part. Be Interesting to see what happens with the stock when this deal gets finalized. Also Out of into is a publicly traded company it's it's not listed in the US. Did Trades over the counter as best I could tell the overall market cap. Of this markets play marketplace business based in Norway. is about eight billion dollars so I'm I always find it interesting? When companies are like? Yeah, we'll basically come up with the cash and stock equivalent of the complete value of our company. To make this deal work. Yeah well since it hasn't been announced. We don't know what they're gonNA come up with in terms of. Some combination of cash and stock so Ebay may still have. You know public share interest in the resulting company with. Speculation right now as as to what that might look like, but yeah, it would radically. Increase the size, the business adventist doing.

"Nearing a deal to sell its classified ad unit to Advanta, Advanta, Advanta, let's go ahead and enter. Whatever and Mike, they're valuing this $8 billion. I didn't even know this was a thing. It's the international Craigslist had never heard of their classified ads unit. Neither had I, frankly. So beyond other Sir, the investors and eBay have over the last several years kind of pushed eBay toe strip themselves and a lot of their other business units, which for those shareholders need bay. That's been a good thing. If you if you won't pay pal, for instance, that stock has done incredibly well. They struck a deal to sell off their StubHub ticketing division last year, and this is really the last big one that they had that wasn't really core to eBay's business. This classified ads, you know, think again. Think of it, as like a Craigslist or Facebook marketplace for a lot of non U. S markets. Wish again if you're competing with Facebook marketplace, I'm not really sure how you make money. EBay's classified ads unit, but that's not here, nor there, I guess.

Ticketmaster Promises Billions in Refunds for Cancelled Concerts

"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business words daily on this. Wednesday April twenty. Second you know that Katy Perry concert. You're looking forward to okay. I was looking forward to it. Back in the pre pandemic era well Yeah that that's not gonNA happen at least not until twenty twenty one. She said recently. She's not alone either. Thirty thousand shows were cancelled OR POSTPONED DUE TO COVA. Nineteen so far. According to Jared Smith President of ticketmaster. That's the gigantic ticket agency. Owned by the world's largest concert promoter live nation. And it's not like those concerts and ball games are coming back anytime soon. The mayors of New York and Los Angeles don't anticipate allowing any large scale gatherings until there's a cure or vaccine for the corona virus according to variety at the earliest. That'll be late this year but it could take much longer and that uncertainty is causing a big problem for ticketmaster. The company had fantastic year delivering one hundred fifteen million tickets in thirty one countries in two thousand nineteen ticketmaster sells more than thirty billion dollars worth of tickets annually in twenty twenty was predicted to be a banner year that is until Corona virus now ticketmaster. Meinie refund billions of dollars in ticket sales late last week. The company announced that it will refund some ticket. Purchasers starting on May first customers who shows have been cancelled or who don't want to attend them on rescheduled. Dates can apply for refunds. They'll have thirty days to do so customers who shows reschedule later. We'll have a rolling thirty DAYS TO APPLY FOR REFUNDS TICKET. Masters new policy is almost exactly that of rival. Ag which announced it's refund program a few days earlier but ticketmaster is also using a big incentive to persuade customers not to ask for refunds so it can hang onto some of that cash according to variety if a show is cancelled altogether customers can take credit worth one hundred fifty percent of the ticket cost in the plan called Rock. When you're ready customers can apply that credit to an event to be held when the world opens up once again ticket masters. New Refund policy follows significant complaints from critics who claim the company's been holding onto customers money unfairly in response. Ticketmaster explained that it doesn't keep all those billions of dollars in ticket sales rather every week pays concert and festival promoters out of those proceeds so far this year that amounts to more than two billion dollars. The company said at a tweet normally ticketmaster has little trouble refunding tickets for cancelled events but when the entire concert industry shuts down overnight the company needs to recoup those funds before it can issue refunds from a corporate perspective. It's one mammoth cashflow nightmare. But it's also a nightmare for people who are suddenly unemployed and who need those refunds to pay the rent or buy groceries people spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on concert tickets and now in the face of indefinite postponements. They need those funds back. But lack of clarity in delays around refunds is made some customers so angry that they're turning to the courts. Matthew Mcmillan a national hockey league fan in Wisconsin was aggravated that ticket. Resellers STUB HUB hadn't refunded the price of tickets to a suspended hockey game so earlier. This month filed a five million dollar class action lawsuit against the company according to Billboard magazine. Stop Hub resells about five billion dollars worth of tickets. Every year like ticketmaster in order to issue thousands of refunds. It says it first needs to recoup the cash paid to the original ticket holders in some ways stubs. Problem is even more tangled than ticket masters since its tickets come from thousands of individual sellers and think about that for a second if your brain let you the original ticket holders purchase tickets to live events that are now cancelled or iffy. Where'd they buy them? Probably ticketmaster or A. E. G. Stop up now. Says IF AN EVENT IS CANCELLED IT WON'T ISSUE REFUNDS. Instead it'll give ticket holders a coupon worth one hundred twenty percent of the original ticket price that credit will be good for a year stubhub said in a statement late in. March. By month's end the company said almost three quarters of ticket holders had accepted the credit but that class action lawsuit filed by the Wisconsin Hockey Fan. He says he bought the tickets on. The basis of stub hubs longstanding. Money-back guarantee. Now he's asking the courts to forbid stubhub from issuing those credits and force it to refund the cash according to billboard the customers lawyer accused stub hub of quote putting its hands in the customer's pockets at a time of the greatest. Financial suffering in recent history stub declined to comment on the lawsuit. According to The New York Times. The refund mess is just one of the problems hitting the entire music

"A baby they tell you. They'll bring it to you at the hospital. Just give me the free political here. I mean, you know, just try. I mean, I guess I feel like you might just end up getting in trouble. How would you get in trouble? I mean, no, not like in any legal sense. But you know, what? I mean, this is this is this if if media gets this, you know, that you tried to fake your way into pizza. People would probably fake waiting the pizzas pretty funny. If you think about it because it's a it's free pizza for a year. And I don't know what that means exactly. What a week what a month or whatever it is. But it still I think this is the kind of thing look I've been screwed over so many times by life with people doing stuff, you know, the most hurtful thing that I think was ever what I got scammed. But other than Denver. We were. We wanna tickets the morning show wanna tickets for the for the Broncos when they're in the playoffs the playoffs. Yes, the playoffs. So we wanted to buy tickets, and then tickets, of course, worse astronomical branches. And I found somebody that had tickets for twelve hundred dollars a piece, and we need three tickets for the three of us on the morning show. So my boss said, he just put it on your American Express card will reimburse you for it. So I bought it from one of these sites. I think it might have been EBay Craigslist. And then turned out that was a scam. That they didn't have any tickets, but they took the money. So then we'd spent an entire morning talking about this at a company called stub hub heard about an in San Francisco, the vice president stub hub sent me an Email and said, we feel ope what happened is it made the local news the story of me getting scammed, and then somehow made national news. And that's how the company in San Francisco stub found out about it. The vice president of stubhub got in touch with me via Email and said, you know, we feel terrible. What happened to you? We'd like to offer you free tickets to replace the fate tickets, and we actually got not only better tickets. But I mean, it was just an incredible experience. So something like this, you know, could get some publicity. Yeah. But nobody's going to be like oh, sorry. You didn't get the free pizza. Here's free pizza. Yeah. But even even so I mean, there's got to be people that are going to search. The hashtag pizza Hut's special delivery and perished promotion. I think this has to be done like as soon as kickoff happens. Boom. Six zero three six zero four PM. All right. Let me know how it goes for you. I'm gonna I'm gonna keep these notes over here because I want to take that home with me. And and I mean, it's worth a shot. Don't you think? I think it's trouble for nothing. Would you be too scared to do this? I don't like being dishonest dunno. I don't think it's being dishonest. I think I think I don't look at it that way I look at it like being something there. If you're posting a picture claiming it's your baby, but it's not. But it's me. But that doesn't matter. It's it is dishonest. The definition of dishonest. But it's okay. If you're okay with saying the contest is a game. Right. So what you're saying is it's okay to cheat. A games. Well, yeah, sometimes, but it's not you could get some publicity for the Rick Steven show. I think it's okay to cheat of the game. If it'll gives you publicity sometimes. Yeah. Why not? All right. It's fine. If you think that I mean, what do you think? Eight seven seven eight fifty eight five hundred five eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five. I shouldn't have talked about this on the show. 'cause now give somebody else a freaking idea. That's what's going to happen. Quick on the finger. I think somebody else going to come. But the first thing I thought of what I was reading about this this morning that why couldn't they just do that. It just seems to easy, but I'm going to try it and just see what happens. Good luck. You know? Radio talk show hosts fakes contest, it doesn't really do with the radio station. Because we could never fake a contest here. That's illegal. That's against the law federal law. But this is Pizza Hut. It's a restaurant. You know, I'm sure it's against the law for them to fake contest to not that. They're faking. He wouldn't know. But that's the thing. That's very quickly. Find out how let's be honest. Your picture. We were a baby technology was not exactly up to date. So I'm assuming you have like an old like it's like a polaroid or like a printout like. I don't think I was born by four the eighteen hundreds before smartphones at the very least. Well, of course, I mean, most people are expecting I have pretty high quality baby pictures, but it's probably got a very different aesthetic or style to it. Oh, really? Yeah. All right. We'll see actually found I found some baby pictures last night of you were born not of when you were like at home in your PJ's. Well, yeah. But I think a baby the baby. Okay. I understand that. But if you're posting it a minute after the game starts, right? It would have to be in the hospital. That means yes in the hospital. But that means it has to look like the baby was literally born a minute ago. Well, there's there's one picture of my mom holding me right after I was born in a hospital. I think that'd be perfect. All right. I just realized that our moms hairstyle would have been different and just trying to think of all of my old pictures when I was a baby. And I wasn't born when you were born and all my pictures, I could very easily look at and be like that's not from today that is not even close. So let me ask you a dumb question. Okay. Just because we haven't done it yet. And I probably shouldn't say this either. But I just did a quick search on Google for just born babies. Don't you? Oh, come on. I mean, I could just take somebody else's picture. Your point there. Hold on hold on. How about if I do this? I win the contest and get the pizza for a year. And I share with everybody. I don't think it makes better. It's free pizza. Every time. What if you just steal a baby? Why can I just go into the maternity ward? Just take a baby just take a picture with your baby. Like today. But why would anyone I so this is my question. If you ask someone to go in and take a picture with their babies so that you can win this contest. I wouldn't say to contest I just say, oh, that's super easy to say that you got to win the contest. Otherwise, you look like a major creep. What about if I go into the hospital where they have all the cribs with the babies with window. You look. Why taking a picture of a baby? Yeah. There's nothing wrong. With that babies are beautiful depends on the baby. There are a lot of ugly. I'm sorry for every parent out there. I don't mean we're not talking about your baby in particular. But I promise you right now, there are a lot of people out there that will look at your baby and say that as an ugly, baby. It just happens babies are not they're they're beautiful to you. Because it's your babies are like puppies. They're all door. I don't know that all puppies horrible. And I know that that is also a controversial because like have you ever seen an ugly puppy? Yes. Oh my God. Yeah. It pugs. Maybe I don't remember. There's a baby where it just looks like a ball of wrinkles. And it's not it is not adorable. I'm sorry. People. I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble. And I know we're wanting to hate me for it. What what did you have in your breakfast today? I'm just just being honest, man. I don't know that. That's that's a good thing. Next thing. You're gonna tell me you want to cheat in a Pizza Hut commercial. I know that is not what I said that is what you said, I blame you. I have the tapes I will go back and play. There's no tape. Stop it already. All right coming up next. Speaking of breakfast breakfast, really good for you.

"A man in a Steelers jersey, choking a pregnant woman. Watch chargers jersey. Really? Yes. Neither that man, nor that woman has been identified. So a few questions. Stubhub was filled with Steelers fans. How do you think that plays a role Mace Kim was in Pittsburgh? Oh, you're right. That game was in Pittsburgh. Yeah. Okay. How do you? Let me just drop that part of the question. Then for some reason I thought that game was in in. They won that game on the road. Okay. What is happening to us as a country where something like this happens or even something like a fan in Dallas, yelling, your mother. F your mother had Patrick Beverley. I mean, really philosophically what is happening to us. I think that one thing is is is people the evolution of social media has made people crisper sard has has the same for this. Make people have Twitter muscles. You know, they'll say anything to anybody online. And so it's almost crossed over into real life people feel emboldened. Yes. That thing. Go ahead and say, so I think that's one part of it. And social media has brought on a culture of outrage. Secondly. And maybe I should have mentioned this. I I think the political climate contributed to it. I think it would we live in such divisive political times that if you you really if you think back to Charlottesville, the fact that anybody could say that. And I remember the president was saying, you know, there were people doing wrong on both sides. There were good. I mean, I can't we all admit that choking a pregnant woman for any reason at a football game is unacceptable. No matter. What spin we put on it? Yes. We think the political climate has contributed to do you agree with that? I think that we live in a binary culture where it's either this that black and white you're on that side. Or you're on my side. It happens all over the place. There's also such anger in the world right now. And I do think it's partly true partly part of that. But part of it is also reality TV people behave badly unreality tiv- each or if I see one more woman grab a we've off another woman's head. It's it's like it's so ugly. And it's given people permission to behave badly this week on Vander pump rules. Poor James Kennedy DJ James Kennedy my nose business behind the deejay booth.

"The risk is employee point out. And I think was pointed out in that letter when you are trying to do the right thing and an employee comes to you. You and you're in HR, and you are kind of conflicted. Are you there to represent the employees or you also there because you report to the CEO, and you're trying to please that person and look good to them? And I don't get I don't mean on a bad way. But that's you know, who you're taking your instruction from or you are being, you know, peer faded by managers. And you know, you may be getting complain about a manager. I think the reality of today is although HR is constructed or theoretically a place that employs is supposed to trust. I think the reality is we need some feedback. Loops that really are check in balanced HR. And that is not began because anybody is trying to do something Mallon tended. It's just about all of the kind of all the workings, you know, behind the scenes in HR that may or may not make it a place that feels comfortable for employees to go or to feel hurt or whatever the set of policies are that may or may not let something ever be shown to the board and the CEO. So I can only tell you as a board member. I would love the idea for. Any of the boards? I was on to be able to have direct visibility into. What is the ratio of complaints? Give me some data on what's going on inside the company most often by the time it comes to the board. It's one crisis situation. But as a board like is a board member, I would want to know what the pattern is like my seeing one out of one thousand incidents, and my see one out of one hundred like how do I get the data that something is not a problem inside a company, I served the board on and I think people underestimate or overestimate how much access the board has to information like that. Right. I mean boards are consuming vast amounts of information, you know, but it's still all comes through one lens in a quarterly meeting, and they have to distill dissect a lot, and I don't think there is a good feedback loop on issues relating to employ happiness talent and culture overall to the board room most committees, you know, like nam gove committees or renumeration committees, you know, cop committees. They're charters very narrow today. And until it's expanded to include these. Things there's not a natural way that this information is all coming to the boardroom unless the CEO himself or herself is very attuned to bringing it. So you are talking about corporate governance, which is super interesting because big tech companies in the valley are structured to kinda void it. Right. Mark Zuckerberg owns all of this shares of Facebook. And he that's totally his board. Can't do anything. Hoover was structured that way. In a very meaningful way that had to be undone the Twitter board drama is just like like it's going to be a movie Sunday. Is that something that just needs to everybody every founder needs to reset the idea that they need to construct a shell around themselves. The company can't get taken away from them because they actually need to build a good culture at scale. Eventually, you know, I think you're hitting on two big topics number one is obviously super voting, right? And who controls the board number two is the consolidation of the founder into the sea. Joe role and the founder CEO and the chairman role of aboard and not having those two things separated. Look, the part of me that's a founder and has managed boards, particularly private companies where I felt like everybody who's in the board room is, you know, venture capitalist and doesn't understand my business that part of me. By the way, has some good nap. Pardon me. Really emphasizes right with the idea of super voting control. Because you're like look somebody who doesn't know my business is coming in and telling me what to do. So I feel like it's a multi founder, I get it..

"You know, and take advantage of every single one that comes along because life is short the reality is we're in the fabric of a category that's growing, and I'm saying this getting reinvented. Right. I mean, there's a distinction that people use to make between, you know, the person who originally sells you the ticket in the person who sells you the ticket that distinction has gone people. Just want a great ticket like people just want to get to an event easily and friction free, right? People want access to uniquely more and more unique experiences. Right. So I think stubhub increasingly has to think about how do you give people access to stickier and unique experiences that they can't get elsewhere. How do you think of that technology? I mean technology in our category is changing a lot people often. Ask me gosh. What? What happens when you think about, you know, arenas and amphitheaters around the world going to presence or authentication by fingerprint like, you know, what happens to your business? So there's all sorts of technology disruption. You've got a consumer the more than ever wants to spend their dollars on not to be forgotten experiences. And you've got I think we have the benefit and the privilege right now of having built the largest fan fan marketplace. But yeah, do I feel a huge obligation to, you know, serve those customers while more importantly, the fun figuring out what are kind of be the next places that we need to go for the consumer keeping in mind the category. I'd say that countries we play in and also the technology. They're gonna come to bear on access overall. Yeah, that's a fun combination. And there's still a ton of disruption ahead. I think the technological piece of authentication and fingerprint and by metric seems like a big change. How tickets are going to work. I mean, you said a piece of paper, and that was it that was all he needed a removing to a place where you're gonna face ID or. Away into the the football game possibly. I mean, right now, we're already a place where I think I wanna to say something like forty percent of our tickets are fulfilled Moberly. I mean, it's an insane amount. But it's such a beautiful and friction lists experience. Now, look, I think they will always be people who wanna use paper tickets to get into events, and you know, that's just the comfort of holding a paper ticket, but accesses one piece for sure as I said, I think another key pieces unique experiences, and how to give people even more than just the ticket. And I think a lot about that as well. So when it first started was kind of a user experience win, right? Here's something that was hard to do. I've actually bought fake Packers jets tickets when I first moved to New York on Craigslist. It was horrible. We're at the stadium and the jets really nice to us. They're like, oh, you got scammed. You can just like wait over here and watch the game. So they were very nice to us. Oh, that's nice. Yeah. I think we just looked like such sad little puppies. So they didn't know what to do. And so now, here's a better user experience. You're not gonna meet some stranger in a Starbucks, and they're not going to sell you a fake ticket. You're going to buy this thing online. So nice marketplace, we've got. Your credit card. We can give you a refund all these things that was the first big disruption. But we were always talking about these great ideas that makes something easier, but to make them work, you need to go get deals right out in the industry have partners the NFL needs to care about you. And not try to kill you. I don't know Verizon needs to not to whatever it is the present us to stop things, you know, apple and Google run big platforms integrate with them. Are you still like the I need deals mode or stop hubs? So big that you can really just work on user experience over and over again. You know, it's interesting I think that we're both. Of course, I think about how to innovate the user experience, and you can't not he can't think about what else this is person want besides the ticket as I said, and how do we make it easy for them? But the converse is now I think less about deals, and I think more about the unique things we do with content rights holders to really give better experienced fan. So right..

"If you call my peer Cheryl Sandberg at the time was running Atwood's online. And we had a virtual presence where advertisers could sign up right in any geo, effectively and publish ads on Google, but we had no physical presence. And you say, we'll why do you need a physical presence in these countries? And you need it for one of two reasons. Number one, you want to go get all the money, right? Like all the money. Go. Medium and large advertisers in countries. Not just a smaller, advertisers that you self serve. You want to get all the money and all the currencies against all the demand on Google search platform and the number to you expand into countries like, you know, C J, China, Japan Korea where inherently the consumer value proposition is different. And you may need a localized product and engineering team to think about how to build demand. And then, of course, go get the money, and so Larry and Sergei time of circa two thousand three basically said international, I think was less than fifty percent of Google's revenue, and they had an ambition for it to be more because they saw that search demand was already larger outside the United States and in it. And so they basically said go forth and multiply faster get us all the money faster, get us there faster. And at the time, I was responsible for Google, local and maps and a bunch of other business initiatives that Google and was asked to move over and build a. It out. So what did I do on the day after I got the job? Well, first of all on the day. I got offered the job. I went home and had a rather long few weeks negotiation with my husband because I was married a year with ambitions of starting a family, and I was like so they want me to run international. What do you think and won him over with Google to think I remember saying that I'm like I'm going to bring my husband on a couple of trips this first year, there's just to get him sold. And they were like, okay. There's a long negotiation actually, but not that long few weeks. And then my first my first job was actually believe it or not traveling to countries opening up Regis offices renting space in Regis office and finding are on the ground either country manager or CFO those are the first hires you make it any country. And you say we'll why in your like what you make sort of a finance in any country because it turns out that there's no point in opening up an office and hiring sales people if you.

I'm just gonna come out and say, it's kinder- is a bad ass. This conversation was Superfund that she is incredibly smart. She's been a founder in entrepreneur, she's run big thing. She's run small things importantly, she was the president of Google Latin America and Asia, she built Google's businesses in Latin America and Asia, we talked about how she did that you might know that about two weeks ago fifteen thousand twenty thousand Google employees walked off the job to protest sexual harassment and discrim. Nation Koogle seeking there has a huge perspective on that. She runs. The foundation called the board list that places women onto the boards of companies, and we talked about how to build better companies with more diverse cultures. How to get started? How to think about starting company, and we all start about stub hub? A new president. She has a lot of ideas. But how a company like stop hub which started out as a disruptor now has to behave as part of the fabric of the economy, and where mobile ticketing can go next, which is surprisingly interesting. So check this out. There is a bad ass. This was a super fun conversation. All right. So I'm joined by seeking their sin. Cassidy who is the president of stubhub, welcome. Thank you. Thank you for joining us. So you and I met a few months ago, right? As you took over, it's up hub. And I'm just going to be honest. You I didn't realize it some of it was part of EBay, which is much bigger company. But you have this long history of being a founder of being CEO. How'd you end up at SABA, but what was your path to there? So I think ended up at stub hub for a couple of reasons. Number one, a big part of my career was spent Google, obviously, where I got to build a pack in latte and got had this incredible journey to scale, but still got in in many ways beyond Japan aerial way. So that's Asia Pacific and Latin America. Yes. So I. Is shipping Latin America at has? It was called a Google and got to build that into a multibillion dollar business, but he was very much an entrepreneur's journey and before and after Google I was an entrepreneur, I was the founder at yodel and after Google I started coming joyous. And then I started coming called the board list. But you know, from my time Google, I really learned that I love scale as much as I love entrepreneurship or scaling. I love kind of growth when you're already at scale, and it's meaningful and I loved the journey of creation. And so as I had started the board list, it was leading no circa two thousand sixteen thousand seventeen and I was in the midst of selling joyous. I really was thinking long and hard about what was next and realizing that as much as I love the last seven years of being an entrepreneur, I really missed scale. But I wanted a job that combined both with the consumer brand that I really could identify with in some sort of lifestyle category. And lo and behold, I was touting with executive recruiter about what my next job would be. But it looks like this. And she said what about stubhub and within a couple of months, I had the job which was great. So it was really a chance to combine. I think my love of creating an entrepreneurship with my love of leading scale and to get that to do that uniquely for a brand. I love in a category. I love answering. I want to say a lot actually. But I'm really interested in these kinds of journeys, especially the people who started in help build the big companies that we take for granted. So you were actually the president of Asia Pacific and Latin America, Google it. And so it didn't exist before and then it did exist and you're along long journey. What was that like like, how do you say? Okay. I'm gonna take Google to Latin America, what was the next day. Like, you know, it's interesting. So when to be fair when I inherited Asia Pacific Latin America, it was a sixty million dollar business. It was mostly virtual so Edwards online..

"Course l a just based on proximity they did very well but as we got towards the playoffs you know we ultimately decided okay that's the regular season now it counts and so we put a different process in place and ultimately we're very creative in terms of how we went to our members and really just encouraging them that hey this is the stanley cup playoffs and we incentivize them financially to to make sure that they were you know give them the best value through what we call the nights vow program to not resell their tickets but if they weren't gonna resell you know sell them through our exclusive marketplace with stubhub but also they were going to pay a higher price for their stanley cup playoff tickets and we really thought like it was a win win our members that weren't going to sell their seats they got a great value and a great price and then those that still wanted the option to resell their tickets through stubhub they could but they were gonna pay higher price and the result was 'cause we were really trying to you know make for the best home ice advantage we could not have as many visiting fans and they're literally were no kings fans in the building hardly at all and a few hundred at best and i was really really proud of our market and proud of the effort and it really made for an even you know we had we had playoff games every night during the regular season it was even more amped up when we got two games one and two last week visiting fans i would imagine a portion of that is obviously the attraction of the city that you guys playing there also seems to be the attraction of the games itself i keep hearing from people i haven't been out to mobile radio keep hearing.
