Partner and General Manager at Valley Engineering
When you’re looking at hiring employees, are you considering intellectual intelligence or emotional intelligence? While it shouldn’t be one or the other, emotional intelligence can often be seen as not as important. But when you’re working to build company culture, it can sometimes mean the difference between thriving and surviving. For Connie Hess, co-owner and partner at Valley Engineering, understanding and adapting to employee needs is one of the most important things a company should do to create an environment for employees to be proud of.
Senior Vice President Marketing at MGM Resorts International
When you think of intimate and intentional brand experiences, what comes to mind? Often, we equate those experiences with smaller, mom-and-pop shops or perhaps a local boutique hotel. In fact, for those outside the hospitality sector, rarely would a city like Las Vegas come to mind. However, MGM Resorts International’s SVP of Marketing, Sarah Moore, has made it her personal mission during and post-COVID-era to create the kind of personal experiences that resonate with their resorts’ customers, ultimately turning them not only into raving fans — but avid returners.
In this episode, we hear from Zain about his journey from working for Gary Vaynerchuck on the VeeFriends launch and moderating their NFT Discord to becoming an NFT creator himself. We help break down some misconceptions of NFTs and hear more about the community aspect that makes up the digital space.
Founder of Authentic Avenue
Everywhere you look, it seems another podcast has popped up. While the market may feel saturated with too many podcasts to count, there’s an increasing gap between the good, the bad, and the indifferent. In fact, there’s actually an explosion of opportunity when done well. Adam Conner thinks so, too. As the founder of Authentic Avenue, Adam believes there are few media as powerful as podcasts for sharing your brand story, building genuine relationships, and connecting with your audience in a truly unique — and often vulnerable — way.
Global Chief Marketing and Digital Officer at Bayer Consumer Health
Purposeful and courageous marketing is more important than ever. Yet, it’s more than simply creating buzzworthy campaigns. In fact, Bayer Global CMO/CDO Patricia Corsi sees it as giving authenticity to both your brand’s positioning and messaging in the market to create an audience-first experience. And that experience should ultimately resonate on the deepest of levels — and on the most human of levels, too.
Founder of Empowered Introverts
When you hear “introvert” do you immediately think, “shy, quiet, likes to be alone”? If you do, you’re not alone. But there’s so much more to the story. In fact, there are a lot of misconceptions around introverted personalities and how they uniquely engage with the world and with others. Daisy Simonis, Founder of Empowered Introverts, is on a mission to help introverts tap into their superpowers on their way to impacting the workforce — and the world — in ways they are uniquely wired to. But, this impact can only come as introverts confidently step into being their unique version of themselves. One interaction at a time.
