Nick Ross recently met with the sports minister to discuss racing's finances. And they are confident of getting things back on track through the appropriate channels the discussions that they've had and They are emphasizing them. There is more to be published a little bit later on as well. They are saying but there, there's also the implications of the dreaded B word, which let's not mention that if I was to ask you, which of the two jurisdictions is in a better position, Berry Ireland or the UK. Our end in terms of prize money and people benefiting at the moment and being able to benefit with with the lack of A. Would lack of attendances at the race courses Arnold I suppose because. Historically, a lot of those race courses m having suffered to the extent of the UK racecourses have because not a lot of Irish people actually enjoy going flat racing. That race does sad truth but as you well know one. Yeah. You know like Roy Alaska. You could have fifty six thousand people there every day champion stakes day in leopards ten would you be lucky? We got eight thousand people there yet say so. Whereas on boxing day or Saint Stephen's Day in Leopardstown. You're looking at maybe twenty, five, thirty, thousand people for National Guard will think of Dublin Racing Festival think of the amount of of to think of the amount of UK. Does a lot of it's. It's amazing. It's amazing me every year that the amounts of listeners from the UK who we have the honor of meeting at Leopardstown were there, and hopefully, we'll get to do that again soon, who come over to the racing post it's amazing. So in terms of revenue from attendance and encore activity. At wilder suffering the racecourses nowhere near as much as the UK race courses are when you look at maybe you could have. Turkey. Hasn't people on an ordinary Saturday in chester for ordinary racing You know they're really feeling the pinch does UK racecourses. So widely ours racecourses are so frenetic a shot of debt. I think the media rights payments are keeping a Lotta them their head above water under just debate sustaining downtown whereas you'd have to question how long some of the tracks in the UK cakes could sustain. You know maybe another six, twelve months of this I showed it to take. Radi. Frightens me. To think what could happen I. Think Inevitably, you're going to see race course closing if there's of prolonged at another period of prolonged in activity in terms of allowing attendance is on course how concerned are you that the Chief Executive Chester came out and said that if this whole pandemic situation is not solved and that fans are not allowed back into the racecourse, they will not race behind closed doors next year. Yeah they they pretty popular own Canoe Anyway Chester there they're concerned won't race to race courses but they're concerned about themselves they're not they don't read. They don't really give a flying FA carry for any of your race course. I suppose what I'm trying to say is, I. Don't see hold out of solidarity from Chester road race courses so I, they do paddle canoe, Reuters them off I leave them out of the equation in terms of you know my sympathies would lie elsewhere with smaller tracks the John Barikot quotas. Now in my head I don't give a flying Flamingo. I get berries on an emotional subject. But before we do, I did say that was the last subject. I can't in the show without asking you about the officer Omni shambles that was doncaster races being falsely blamed in fake news fake news media folks. Attacking them. That was non existent Stuart Riley did his due diligence and actual journalism contacted doncaster races for comment. This is to do with the famous rugby players coach trip. They had no bookings from south Wales nobody from south of oils in large numbers at attended the racecourse nor had the NHS tracking system been in touch with them. So they were completely innocent. Yet the BBC. The Guardian even and to be fair to Chris Cook when a highlighted this on twitter Chris did tweets and Chris was not the person who rose at me at Christie's tweet that that have been rectified and changed unfair play to them. But there was a statement issued by the be Ha. And by Doncaster Racecourse. The nice before. Yet at five past seven in the morning the next day the BBC still ran with the story that it was a trip to doncaster races was resulting in a covert lockdown in Wales. As US just you're banging your head off a wall because it just seems as though racing is the easy target. So how frustrated with were you case? Very. Much. Say it was it was just wasn't it and. I know you've you'd say, well, he didn't actually say that they contract to decide donnas they said on the trip to it but why name Don pass the word. Extra details adding to your headline journalists divert your headline. Even. Sorry. That was just the it was bizarre and then straightway evidently Innuendo people are going to be as in doncaster races with this this spike income numbers and especially if the fact that. The the next few days Don. Crafts who was shut down by local health? Secretary will. Assam pastor as well which in itself was very frustrating when you see the numbers at doncaster, the the amounts of money kost through that and looks all hype flare why such a precedent for local health secretaries to them be shutting down kind of organizations events in that vicinity because Beta want to have any sort of record on the in books of of any sorts of cases happening under their watch so that in itself is going and their rugby coach trip. Seems I didn't have any tickets to Don Castle. They soon just made the. Believe is an annual pilgrimage pilgrimage it was the dust but. I'm not sure to be. was there. Any apologies don't ask the racist or any source of that it was an amended story, but I didn't know though then published.

Apple Faces Backlash on iOS 14 Ad Privacy from Facebook and Game Developers
"Apple's take more flack over its advertising move or Rather. It's moved to stop advertisers from tracking users across absent websites without their knowledge. You. Probably remember the move about which I'm talking in case you don't apple insider explains saying the changes in Iowa fourteen apply to fire for advertisers or ide- FAA tags. which allow advertisers to collect aggregate data about users without harvesting their personally identifiable information in IOS fourteen apple is requiring that absent advertisers obtained permission from users to track them across APPS and websites owned by other companies through a prominent pop up box. Give people the option to have that not happen. Advertisers figure people might opt to have that not happen. And so apple insider says the Partnership for responsible addressable media has written a letter to Apple. It's hoping to engage in a dialogue with apple before it pulls the trigger on the privacy feature. That was supposed to happen with the release of West Fourteen hearing the hue and Cry Apple pushed the privacy feature out too early next year. According to apple insider while the letter praises Apple's decision to delay enforcement of the new privacy features it requests an urgent meeting to ensure we use that additional time to launch a collaborative process to address widespread questions and concerns around these upcoming changes. In particular, the letter reads we hope to better understand the specific rationale for such changes, how the changes will be implemented and what steps might be taken by marketers, publishers, developers, and other parties to ensure that critical functionality is preserved. Taking a less conciliatory approach with the CEO of Instagram CNBC ran a piece over the weekend that had Adam Maseri chief executive of the facebook subsidiary saying it'll push back on the. FAA, changes on the way. massery would apparently have people believe that his concern is for the little guy. Wait probably the instagram user is the little guy. Instagram as of course, the big guy so I guess his concern is for the middleman. Appearing. On CNBC's squawk box massery said if the ecosystem changes in the way that advertisers can't really measure their return on investment that's really going to be yes. Somewhat problematic for our business, but it's going to be problematic for all the big ad platforms roughly equally. So I'm not that worried about it over the long run. It's going to be much much more problematic for all the small businesses. There are millions of them out there that rely on to target customers and reach those customers particularly during a pandemic when they're hurting. We believe that there's a way to be really responsible and give people control over their data and transparency into their data but without cutting off our understanding and therefore operating blind. Somehow this ties in. To massery to apple having too much power. Quoting the again, they haven't immense amount of power. They can just decide we can't launch new APPS. At any given moment, we've seen a series of articles and even some lawsuits on their influence and power over developers over the last couple months. He seems to be zipping past the part where apple in this case is giving power to the users. Eventually.
Rio Tinto CEO to leave over destruction of Indigenous sites
"It's not very often that shareholders of a big multinational company forced the resignation of a chief executive. But in the case of the global mining giant Rio Tinto, it seems they have shown Sebastian Jack is stepping down after an outcry over the destruction of sacred and archaeologically important aboriginal sites in western Australia. To ancient caves in pill Burwood blown up because they sat on top of millions of dollars of high grade on all well that sparked widespread condemnation from the shareholders and, indeed, the wider public. I've been speaking to Professor Marshall Langton. She's an aboriginal academic at the University of Melbourne. She's been telling me first of all why the sites was so significant. I thought the traditional property off a group of traditional Ainas in the Pilbara Everyone refers to the buy of the shorthand P k. K p So they are extremely important religious sites. They haven't had much of an opportunity to explain to the public why they are so important to them. Although they have been a few statements in the media. They've said that they had broken they regard. This is a tragedy for all of their people before the destruction, they wanted to take their young people to these sites. And they were also of deep on through biological. And while archaeological significance as well, when they yes. Oh, they found evidence that dates human occupation of these caves to 46,000 years ago. This is during the place to say this is, you know very early on in the history of human Occupation off this continent and, you know, travels across the globe. And then I found a human hair bills and they were able to extract and I the dyke I'm in at many, thousands of years, and the interesting thing about that discovery is that the present I traditional Ainas. Are the direct descendants of those people, They say areas where off world heritage status so our Rio Tinto able to destroy them in that, such for Arnold They applied some years ago to the western Australian government under the western Australian cultural heritage eject And the minister readily granted it to them because the state of Western Australia is entirely dependent on mining rules ease. And so as far as I know, no minister in the western Australian government has ever refused a mining company. P. K. K P people tried to object, but there's no right of appeal under the legislation once the ministers might a decision, how surprised are you then? That Rio Tinto's chief executive has resigned as he said they've bean many sites in the past that have been destroyed, with little consequence for for the mining companies. But not this time. Why is that? Well, there are two reasons. I'm the first one is that in the past the indigenous land use agreements were drafted in such a way that the traditional Ainas were able to be consulted regularly and have a sigh in their cultural heritage on mining leases and really tinto quite a few years ago. Had very good Ray Shane for implementing those agreements with the Aboriginal Tradition alliance. But what Jack has done in the years that he was CEO was got that staff workforce body of expertise. And culture off, you know, operating values, and he removed all of the experts eh removed the cultural values from the company. He removed the commitment to working closely with traditional Ainas to retain the the company's Social Lawson's too upright, And that is one of the primary reasons for the other negligence that has led to The destruction of the sites has there also being a sort of cultural change in Australia as regards to the protection of these sorts of places? Yes, so many sites have been protected both by mining companies and governments. And also, for instance, you will know that the old route was closed to climates last year, and there has been a community change. Under the reconciliation action plans devised by corporations, universities associations and approved by reconciliation, Australia. People might commitments to treat aboriginal people with respect and to trait average on people's cultures with respect. The destruction of the caves was like the blowing up the Buddha statue Aryan it's on that scale of cultural heritage destruction. And it's you know, quite shocking to may that that Jack and Nevan and soul spray who will resigned had no comprehension off the gravity of what they had

Party's original eighteen twenty eight charter to announce shocking discovery an obscure rule granting the nomination to whomever wins zero point seven percent of the primary vote in the state of Missouri Opr. CHEAP, political correspondent. Dirk mullins was on the scene and joins us now dirk this was quite a one eighty, right leslie truly one of the most unexpected political turnarounds in US history Tolsey Gabbard, the representative from Hawaii who dropped out of the presidential race and nearly six months ago has now gained the nomination mere moments before Joe Biden was due to become the party's official nominee take a listen. Please folks folks. Let me finish. And I quote from the document itself. Sorry. It's a little dusty. It is here to unanimously decreed. That the candidate, whomsoever procures betwixt the margin of six tenths and eight tenths of the vote in The Majesty state of Missouri Beneath the Pale blood moon. In fallow season shall be made our party's nominee for chief executive.

That's all that matters right now, what does the Biden campaign saying? This must be a disappointment for them. It certainly is they're searching for a workaround by arguing this decision is superseded by an even. Older precolonial taxed that magnificant democracy him from sixteen, Eighty two. That's the old pamphlet about how to keep Goblins from emerging out of hell and overrunning a functioning democracy. Right? That's right now, those passages suggest only papist like Joe Biden for example, has the power to resist the quote devils. Karnal source laments so far though the Democratic Party has stuck to its guns on this point seven percent of Missouri principle though. Tolsey two, thousand, twenty or bust incredible. It looks that way. We haven't seen this big of a shakeup since John Quincy Adams to the White House due to a loophole in the Electoral College granting the presidency to any candidate born with six toes on his left foot.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving
"chief executive" Discussed on The Business of Fashion Podcast
"Could like a platform I. Don't know if others will get there. What do know is we have the largest e-commerce luxury platform? North America we have the strongest relationship with the customers where we have this group of loyal customers, and we've become a digital for many many years, and we not advancing a leapfrogging there I don't think that. Consolidation! is required for us to be successful. I do believe that some economies of scale there, but frankly agility is very important and I look at the assets we have. The relationship with Brenda customers MD, digital eco-system and I want to accelerate that especially given that post pandemic will be one who will have by far the lease that ended most financial agility. And I'm not sure that. The consolidation in the economies of scale would compensate for Jibbidy now. Once. We have made our own progress in once. We see where others are maybe in a midterm that may make sense, but I think right now. We have so much to go do by ourselves. We see so many green shoots that I think consolidation would probably slow as that process can one last question, because I've already gone over my limit, but I'm just keen to get this one last question in which is My Theresa Profitable ECOMMERCE player Neiman Marcus acquired it years ago. There was talk about it being a potential international channel Neiman Marcus but but as part of this process you know you might. Theresa is like GonNa and put into a separate category separate from these proceedings. What does that mean for the future of my reassigned Neiman Marcus is is that, is it? Is it an eventuality that might trees gets sold to the highest bidder and these two businesses separate ways. So, my theory is is separate from the entities that file through bankruptcy bankruptcy, because they had same ownership, but not same debt, and so might theories are currently resides the holding company that didn't fight for for bankruptcy and operates business as will will continue on the same pass of business in eventually could be sold could be IPO. Whatever strategic option will will be relevant N. That's of course of action, and then there's some Elements of that relationship that being discussed through the bankruptcy but the. Series business is not out of this process. So the future for my treats still on with with regards to the relief. Marcus or are you definitely going to pursue some other strategic options that you mentioned? The the. What's interesting to look at this? Niemann Mark is group has a INC level, not the entity that fide had multiple entities, and some of them were at the entity that five at Burger van Lasco Neiman Marcus, but every business has been run separately independently the business in North America have some shirts services in terms of warehouses and it support might theories a has always. Operated on its own with its own branding its own gene, and so really nothing changes there they will be owned by the same owner that owner will longer on this company and and I think the the relationship between Niemann Berkoff was assistant company, and that that will not be the case but it. It really doesn't impact the bright future for for my Sary's. Was Flawed. Thank you for that. I personally took a lot away from that. Because I think as I said at the beginning the whole chapter eleven, thing is kind of understood at a very superficial level I think, but the amount of work you need to do to work with the creditors and brands, and the keep the pisses going. it's a lot especially in the midst of a global pandemic and you know I think the the idea of this third channel you know based on the conversation I had with you, but also other retailers. It seems like there is a completely different way for retail had to happen in the future. The, there is an you know. I don't wish on anyone to have abandoned None of us land for this it. It has been unprecedented any few layer on top of that social unrest in the US and Chapter Eleven. It's been probably the most busy times for leadership team the most draining time, but it's also a moment where when you are in a crisis when things are changing, it gives you impetus to make a difference it forces you to make a difference and yet video or team to embrace change and or customer swing brace change. Has Allowed us to leapfrog and so I actually think that we didn't waste this, but we need to realize that the business is different, and it presents with wonderful opportunities the because the customer wants something as the question for all of us is going to be who can be Ajayi. Enough nuts to capture those opportunities and Kuchen can flawlessly executed, and we seeing across the bronze runs, that are moving into very innovative ways to present their product to reach out to customers to develop there, their collections and I think that's going to be the Bryans that are going to succeed better than others, and those that are not necessarily taking this need to change how they function. I think. That will be Amiss and reflected in in in in in in their success in the future so for me. It's painful, but it's a want I'm a pro-treaty to leapfrog, and the the disruption we've had has only given one shows, but to leapfrog. And to make sure that not only would we go through the chapter eleven emerged. But most importantly that when we emerge, we'd both for success and that we have the team with us. That is all much evaded in to to drive those changes, and we continue to invest in the version of the version. Two open 'em connect invest capsule during the pandemic because we do know that that is the way to that are. Well, thank you for your time today.

"Jason Base and it's my pleasure to be joined by bill winters group chief executive we want And I really appreciate you making some times come until two and then that's the pleasure I it's nice to be able which bank is it thirty five retail regions something like that across few years well we look at it all the time so it's exactly how we look at it evolves over wins between all those things and there's also connections where we have retail between the wholesale business so there's there's sort of a horizontal and a vertical network effector that we're trying to capture all the time Ankara we have one market where we have one hundred percent market share I'll bet you can't guess what it is her and we have some markets wonderful markets like Hong Kong where market shares is more like ten percent I guess so yeah different countries different markets different positions than what we try that if we can't figure out what the need or we don't think we can deliver it in a differentiated way then it and they're currently some some similarities across markets and writers and I think that's probably right as as technology becomes more portable across borders but nevertheless so how do you pick which regions to really go for in that space because I guess in some ways you could say well uh-huh call it even liberating realization for us over the past few years is that when you've been in the market for one hundred and sixty years it's natural to think of yourself as an income it from a branding with with new paradigm being developed in terms of accessing customers and customer relationships to get two markets where we just don't have penetrations so yeah we're looking at a we we built a standalone virtual bank in Cote d'Ivoire Ivory Coast so that it's a complete full service on a mobile phone and and that was a new market providing to local customers it's a small market for sure and in countries where we do have a retail presence right and in those cases it's just a it's an additional channel I guess that points to something around to different operating model or different or should they be doing smaller plays and then moving on like how do you think about that okay so we we spent some money to iron out the wrinkles to make sure that we could have a latest gadgets and wings what we're building in Hong Kong can deliver that but that's that's the intention we have an in-between roll out in India last year hiring on a new human touch digital complementary channel to to offer services that are consistent with with best in class or within striking virtual back in Hong Kong is is is denault operation with US physically separate up and also the challenges of the start up I think we're also realizing that being on our our Hong Kong Bank and in the context of startup because it's uh on the other hand I ask you what what's what's going to slow down some of the other participants in this market China doesn't necessarily work in Hong Kong so so the fact that we can take a so of course there's give and take things where we're in much better shape by iron out all the wrinkles at the outset so that as we roll this model out and subsequent it is often that the underlying sort of balance sheet the financial products is I'm channel view yet but I guess with a large bank that house plays out it's a huge challenge and I think I think any any bank and we're getting better at dealing with the challenge I'm not gonNA pretend that we've transformed the Culture Center chartered in the past works for for new ideas with with sort of limited ability to do harm in happens outside of the main ship and gets back in we'll see for for the time being organization to innovate themselves and then we've been very careful to have fully funding for interpreters some of which are really exciting and at the same time giving tation it'd be different for Senator Charter than it will be for somebody for example that has a big proportion gone for banking licences there in the region of partnerships and aggregations of services flavor What do you think what do you think behind that in terms of their dealing with him and and there's there's different ways to skin that cat they very fast with an effective partnership but we found is is that senator chartered so I think we are really nice people I think what Senator Charter brings to the equation is a recognition partnerships so we're investing heavily in these partnerships where we can you know leading a a a really interesting bank in the you are in so many of these in you know across the world how do you prioritize organization at scale really boil down into into two things and and a third was more of an aspiration in China Hong Kong as well as a the second largest clearer dollars in the WanNa do it in a way that that we provide less of what clients don't value from us we just undifferentiated onto proposition that we don't manufacture anything so we're we're a distributor and logical singularity which is trust and right now we have that today and we're doing service with with that in fact with our entire retail business but in particular with asset in heavily on digitizing everything that we do now that's not differentiated but we have partnered with a now we will partner with we can offer something different in terms of building propositions exactly it's on the wall behind us because actually digitizing the digital traditionally bankers view the world in their product framework it's a credit card it's alone how does that work yeah I mean that's quite a mind shift collision shift in in how things work Ohio high single digits to a less respectable lower single digits over twelve year are produced by third parties We put a super strong colleague who had been running our Global Chris because you can you can change in days if you can get the mindset in the incentivisation not too long a period of time wow and we're repeating guided market aftermarket aftermarket some of the tools that we're developing will make a difference there as well and the you know working with dentists giving them the guys down in Hong Kong was amazing actually out of I'm not going to share that with him because I wanted to really focus on a the region show so she's not ruling that out in Malaysia Indonesia and India etc We're not done yet I mean I don't want to pretend that we're done but we know that we can do it so I'm fascinated by on complaints I that was proper proper handling complaints we and so we we tried to build as much of the service platform as we could into our versions two and three individually in Hong Kong the the idea is to allow much more self service and much more intuitive Donna on a series.
"chief executive" Discussed on My Career Fit
"Impact makers headquartered in Richmond Virginia and as a for profit management and technology consulting firm that is committed to contributing one hundred percent of its net profits to the community over the life of the company their community contributions rival companies one hundred times their size due to this revolutionary model as founding beat corporation impact makers has been named best for the world for the past six years as well as listed among the INC. Five thousand fastest growing companies list for the past seven years on today's podcast. I have the pleasure of speaking to chief executive officer Louis Broom. Hi Louis Broom Ceo of impact makers. I'd like to thank my personal. History has really positioned me well for this role. I've worked in industry with twelve years working on Wall Street running leading global. It teams on some pretty interesting projects. So I've been very technical roles I've worked in consulting for a while. This is my second. Ceo POSITION FOR CONSULTING Company. I have experience as an entrepreneur. Both in consulting and food service believe it or not is Baker Chef In College I started a community activists organization trying to make the world or better place. So I really couldn't be happier in this role and I'm very grateful and humbled to have this opportunity so I've been it impact makers for three years and for the last six months. I've really been leaning the organization through a brand refresh and by brand. I mean more than just updating our logo and website. It's really been a about Canada's more focused on how we create value for our clients and being clear on who our clients and why right so beyond this latest strategic imperative on a daily basis Think of my role really enabling and mobilizing the collective wisdom of the organization And the efforts And and how do we really live our brand and tactically? This means in our participate in either of our go to market solutions Help think through how to structure deals and our business development pursuits of course engage with clients to make sure we're exceeding their expectations and ultimately making sure we're focused on supporting our community partners through pro bono work in financial contributions as I mentioned at the top of the episode. Impact makers is a founding B. Corporation a certified B Corporation is a business that meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance public transparency and legal accountability to bounce Prophet and purpose and they're accelerating global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. I asked Louis unpacked for us. More about what? Impact makers does and more about their social mission as a B corporation. So let me tell you about our position ourselves in the marketplace. In how I believe that differentiates us to win in really starts with our mission which is to make lasting impacts in. How do we do? That is by our model for delivering value to our clients We have Very technically strong teams delivering holistic solutions across our core services of cloud data cybersecurity and enterprise agility while at the same time we provide strong consulting services that ensures that the technical solutions were building our line to our clients. Business needs expectations and that the solutions are adopted. Bar Client organizations so that they can actually realize the value of the solutions. We appreciate that. The problems that we're all brought into solve will cost change in our clients organizations and that and that changes heart so to make sure we're able to create this tangible value with our technical solutions. We understand we have to be good it consulting while. All this may not sound revolutionary. Unless you're one of the big four. This is not really easy to do but we do it. It's unusual for firm our size of a little less than one hundred people to make this happen at a price value. That beats the big four all day long but finally a real differentiator is our unique model of being a for profit company. That works as a social enterprise for good in the community. Our clients like this about us but our staff loves this about US and it's what drives so much of our culture and that really brings in top talent. It attracts talent like no other. People want to come work here for our commitment to our community which tends to mean. They are people who are just committed individuals so when they're working with our clients they're working from sort of committed. Dna having a lasting impact. And how that translates for our community partners is their funding is focused on their mission. You know they're operating budget to build out a cloud solution or to build dashboards or to build an analytics platform right. They don't have that kind of funding so when we're able to throw a pro bono work come in and actually allow these organizations to scale work more efficiently. Give them insights or give them capabilities that they really couldn't afford to buy. That is really making an impact them just through our team being able to do what they do. Day In day. Out For our clients. These are four values maximize integrity foster collaboration cared deeply and make a lasting impact. Which is also our tagline and while they're all equally important and powerful we really believe cared deeply and make a lasting impact or quite unique and differentiated and it really is what makes our culture stand out against other companies. I don't know many other companies that would claim that one of their values is care deeply and what that means Saas tactically. Is We care deeply about that? Client success you know we care deeply about other human beings so we kinda just go out our work sort of through that lens so many ways you know having that deep set of values Really I think builds on our culture and really makes us a differentiated place to work with their headquarters in Richmond. Virginia clients across the East Coast in an emerging office in Washington DC. I asked Lewis to describe what truly sets. Impact makers apart from other consulting firms and what kind of associates or consultants truly thrive at impact makers. Yeah in in many ways. I think what really makes us? Different is our ability to be technically proficient while also being good consultants a LOT OF TIMES COMPANIES CONSULTING COMPANIES. Our size tend to be one or the other. We believe that our differentiation is the fact that we're we're bringing in people who understand the art of consulting and they understand how to communicate with clients how to manage their expectations but while also having really strong deep technical expertise on our teams so that we can kind of you know. Solve both pieces of that puzzle. We'll given what we've discussed really safe. Are you know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team? Based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact is really important to them. So this means a couple things Looking for people that want to combine their technical capabilities with an ability to what I call being a true consultant and it means people. He realized the value being a trusted advisers as important as being technically proficient. But there's one other thing that is important for candidates to understand what considering impact makers as a place for the next career and that is do they want to be part of helping to grow company specially companies. That's trying to do something very unique in the marketplace. The work for consultant here is yes delivering for clients working with our community partners to make them better. But it's also. How do you help build impact makers so how do you help us build the internal processes so we can scale And so it's important for candidates to realize that it's about helping to grow the company as much as being a consultant and we realized that this may not be you the place for everybody and that's okay. Lewis also gave us a window into impact makers strategic direction and where they see the company heading and how that also translates into hiring in terms of what kinds of roles. They're looking for in the marketplace so strategically our long-term growth plan is to create. Take the model that we have That were building today and replicate that in other geographical locations Were focused on building out our presence and the DC metro area. We have identified and created relationships with local nonprofits And so we're starting. Do Pro Bono work for them in the DC area so if we were to move into another city like Nashville or somewhere else you know. We want to take our whole package and move that to that geographic location and that includes having pro. Bono partners creating relationships with the community and being connected in with our neighbors. And how do we make that a better place to live right now? Where we're focused strategically is building out those internal processes so we can scale. You know we're looking at how we take our holistic solutions and line them to specific verticals that we work in specifically being healthcare providers healthcare payers the financial services market as well as a look one state governments. We're looking for strong consulting backgrounds for example folks with two plus years working for large consulting company. So they get what it means to be a professional consultant but it also means we're looking for folks who have had a more technically focused role in their pass in but feel they have a strong aptitude for consulting. This could be a clown engineer for example that sees the value in our consultative approach. And they won't be able to make the client better not just deliver technical solution and again this may not be a fit for everyone and that's Ok for my final question. I asked Lewis as I do. All my guest. How will you know if you've heard the right person for the job in the first year? How do you measure success for these roles? A great thing about consulting and how we operate is easy for everyone to see the value. They are creating For instance do clients like working with you. Do they want you to stick around? Because they see the value bring we call this client stickiness. There are also some hard measures for success like utilization which is a measure of how billable someone is as a consultant but there are other ways to measure success in delivering high quality work helping and business development pursuits not having to sell but helping to strategize and develop the materials in these pursuits mentoring. More junior resources And learning development. So that you become more valuable to our clients and we you know in your bill rate can increase so these are some other ways in which you know you can measure success beyond just utilization. You know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact. It's really important that you've been listening to the.

She came out to reporters, and she basically said that we're going to continue ahead with pushing the Bill through, she didn't differ, hugely from her line in the past, which is that Hong Kong needs to not be a refuge for fugitives and continue to explain the need for the Bill and there had been some speculation that after yesterday's turnout, perhaps, she would try to amend the Bill, perhaps, she would even take it off the table. But she didn't do those things. Facey. Karen, it's Mattis, what is the rub of this one is at the center of these protests. Is it a by the long arm of mainland China into Hong Kong? It really is. People are concerned that this law more than anything Beijing has done in recent months, could erode Hong Kong's autonomy in a way that would fundamentally change its relationship with China, and if anyone had any doubt about how much that worries average people, how much that worries the business community that was a late yesterday when you saw how many people came out onto the streets in what they said very quickly. Karen, what's the next step when it comes to this law? Because it actually still needs to go to a vote, right? It still needs to go to vote in the next couple of weeks. Probably going to see more outcry you're going to see a reading on Wednesday. But this needs to go through in, July, if they're going to get it through and carrying land has been pushing to get it through by the end of that legislative session. All right. We'll be following the ins and outs of all of that, of course, our Bloomberg China government editor Karen Lee. Thank you so much for that. Well up next Middle.

"Okay. Apparently the state or the governor's office, whomever, chartered another airplane to get the governor to his. Yeah. To get to Fort Lauderdale. Apparently. Right. And so they got charged another king air, maybe and zapped him down the Lauderdale. And so I. Something obviously needs to be done Florida is a big state. Yes. Okay. And it's not feasible. It's not reasonable to expect the chief executive to drive. Yeah. Takes me an hour in the bonanza just in the air just to get out of the state, and I'm not at the bottom of it either. So there's. There's another hour. Basically, you're you're like maybe two thirds of the way down. This is this is always the sobering. Part. When I drive down there in the wintertime. It's you know, you drive in you drive in you drive, and you go through, you know, all the east coast, and you go and you find the made it to Florida only realize that you still got like four hours driving. So yeah, I don't begrudge the guy needed near needs. He needs safe and reliable transportation as as the the bottom the last light of the article says, and I suspect you'll see the Florida government beat buying a king air, or I don't know maybe a light jacket or something who knows right? It seems a little a false economy to me that they got rid of the old airplanes. I mean, I get the previous guy. What Scott, right? Yeah. You know? Now Senator Scott wanted to use his own airplane because he was familiar with it in probably had, you know, now you've made a big deal about state excess and expenses and all this stuff, but they stayed really needed airplane. I have my own and anybody that comes behind me is just cried. So yeah. But this like crazy because it's like, so you're pretending like the jet doesn't cost money. I mean, whether or not the state's paying for it, of course, pay for and arguably. They should be paying for at least part of it. That's fair. All right. But you know, it's like he didn't really save any money. He just got to use his own airplane. You know? And I I won't you know. I mean, I was into conspiracy theories earlier, and I guess I'm gonna stop now. But you know, there is it does beg the question of whether or not this was a way for him to funnel Florida money into his flight program. I I'm shocked shocked. I know you would think one of our our. Fl statewide, Florida public servant would have any conception of such malfeasance. You know, present company excepted, I'm not convinced that Florida men most of the time or smart enough to think of these kinds of things c b. That was that was Hodgson HUD SOS. SOL begin baby. Alligators in the mail that seemed like such a clever joke as it was coming out of my mouth soon. Followed by soon followed by me, remembering all of the people. I know who live in Florida. Right. That's called speakers remorse. I know. All right. He's going to be here in a couple of weeks. He's gonna be in Florida actually a couple of weeks by the end of the coming league. It was a cheap joke. I apologize. So I'm not gonna tell you what to do about this. But yeah, sorry, these facts, anyways, these are the facts. So so the Florida government governor doesn't have an airplane. And or got apparently breaks for you know, whatever I haven't seen any follow up on this story. So yeah. So anyways.
