The framework of business is completely different in the new normal. To explore culture as the strategy, we have to look in places we haven't before. Looking into company culture from the c-suite to employees and from Fortune 500 to start-ups. It's time to understand the human side of company culture, as well as, the new shape it is taking.

    Chris Skinner: Power of People with Bitcoin, Power of State is too Great!

    Chris Skinner is known as one of the most influential people in technology, and as an independent commentator on fintech through his blog, The Finanser.com. His latest book (sixteenth!) is called Doing Digital. He is Chair of Nordic Future Innovation, is a non-executive director of 11:FS and on the advisory boards of many FinTech and financial firms. Mr. Skinner has been an advisor to the United Nations, the White House, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum. He is a visiting lecturer with Cambridge University, as well as, a TEDx speaker. In recent years, he has been voted one of the UK's foremost fintech observers by The Telegraph and one of the most influential people in financial technology by the Wall Street Journal's Financial News and Thomson Reuters. Chris is also a successful children's author and co-founder of The Portrait Foundation, a non-profit platform to encourage children and the arts. Let's start with the recent crash in crypto, in your blog you state that you believe the end-game will be a hybrid model of CBDCs, stablecoins and cryptocurrencies. I found is fascinating that you state that too many people believe these currencies are all about HODLing (in the crypto slang it's about keeping them as an investment) instead of what currencies are really about, which is allowing the exchange of value to buy and sell products and services. It's all about creating currencies that work for value exchange in a networked world.Would you like an opportunity to give this more depth for those just beginning to invest in cryptocurrency and please define CBDC (central back digital currency)?What is your take on a global coin and how this would affect governments if it's realized? A coin that can be traded anywhere, anytime, in real-time with anyone.Your book, Digital Human, explores the transformations that are sweeping through all spheres of life: the domination of global digital giants; the advent of new financial structures (FinTech); the disruption brought about by Bitcoin; the rise of robots; and the fall of banks.A standout line from your book: not only will everyone on the planet be connected digitally, they can be raised out of poverty through inclusion. Can we dive into your thoughts on blockchain, cryptocurrency and how this may level the playing field for those in poverty?Digital for Good looks at everything from how banking plays a role in the climate emergency through the FinTech world using technology to overcome issues of inequality and inclusion. I'd like to understand this intersection, can you share your vision for Fintech in lifting us out of this global climate crisis and possibly helping marginalized lives?Chris Skinner's Blog, The Finanser Chris Skinner, LinkedinChris Skinner, TwitterHolly Shannon's WebsiteZero To Podcast on AmazonHolly Shannon, LinkedinHolly Shannon, InstagramHolly Shannon, TwitterWatch Culture Factor and VaynerNFT#nfts #nft #nftart #cryptocurrency #blockchain #metaverse #culturefactor #web3 #smartcontracts #bitcoin #nftartist #nftcollectors #eth #ethereum #youtubers #tiktok #instagram #reels #branding  #entrepreneur #coach #consulting #zerotopodcast #podcast #jobsearching #thoughtleader #thoughtleadership #startapodcasttoday #startapodcastalready   #experiences #experientialmarketing #companyculture #employeeengagment #community #peertopeer #decentralizedeconomy

    Trey serves as a Director of Client Partnerships at Vayner NFT. He focuses on educating his clients on the advantages of NFTs and the business impact Web3 space can have on their relationships with consumers. He leads his clients in all stages of their NFT journey, ensuring authentic entry to the space and building long-term strategic NFT programs. Prior to joining VaynerNFT, he worked as a team lead at an Artificial Intelligence consulting firm and spent 3 years helping build DraftKings marketing partnerships. Trey is focused on putting his clients in a position to take advantage of the next generation of the internet.Building impact in the Web3 space requires a ton of EQ and AQ and Gary Vaynerchuck and all his various businesses are the blueprint of making sure that the unattractive parts of Web 2 do not seep into the company culture or the client relationships. So it is imperative that the people he entrusts also carry this determination to build an empathetic Web3. You are tasked with all phases of a project with the client but the authentic entry and onboarding process really sets the tone for their experience. What parts of your history, be it upbringing, school or work experience prepared you most for this? I often speak on this show about road-maps and the rug pulls that are unsuccessful in meeting any part of the promises made. So what excited me about having this conversation with you specifically is that you are achieving this at the highest level in the NFT ecosystem with VaynerNFT.  Part of your role at VaynerNFT is building long-term strategic programs. And with very high profile clients. I myself did this in my tenure in white glove hospitality and know how discerning this client can be. How do you navigate delivering on the vision of a client? And on a more granular level, how do you build out utility that not only serves the client but is attainable?Can you give an example or case study of a client either at your time at Draftkings or VaynerNFT that allowed you to break new ground to create something that you yourself didn't see at the start but turned into magic?The VaynerNFT model really creates an open forum for diversity and empathy. These are core tenants for my show. If I'm not representing that in the speakers and the content I create, then I'm not solving for the future. What do you see for the future in terms of trends and how you and VaynerNFT can possibly solve for the bigger picture?Are there any projects you are working on that you are especially excited about?Are there brands or areas of businesses that you are dreaming about creating NFT projects with?Identify your portfolio with NFT purchases. We present ourselves on social media differently, so why not in your wallet! We embody different personalities, professionally, personally, artistically, politically, with family, different social norms based on environment and who you are with.Circular economy with NFTs and musicians.Left field question: are you open to partnerships with creators that come to you with ideas, say through VeeFriends, Discord channels or DAOs?Catch another great episode! https://culturefactor.simplecast.com/episodes/brian-fanzo-p1-early-adoption-the-101-on-nfts-web3-blockchain-and-creator-coins-jmcxjfkshttps://youtu.be/-NQ0W2w3Uo4 #nfts #nft #nftart #cryptocurrency #blockchain #metaverse #culturefactor #web3 #metaverse #bitcoinTrey Pezzetti on TwitterHolly Shannon's WebsiteZero To Podcast on AmazonHolly Shannon, LinkedinHolly Shannon, InstagramHolly Shannon, ClubhouseMusic by Paco Hallak

    NFTs are rapidly evolving - and so is this space. HashLips is driving transformation and bridging gaps through accessibility, education, and empowerment. The name is an alias for his YouTube channel, and for his NFT Art Engine as well as an NFT collection. It is also an art movement. Dig a bit deeper, and you realize that HashLips is an advocate for blockchain technology advancement, too. Most especially, it is a community of like-minded adventurers.HashLips was born on YouTube in 2021. The channel already has over 2 million total video views. However, HashLips isn't merely a library of ‘how-to' videos. It's far more important. HashLips is known by the NFT community for making things accessible that simply weren't before, thus leading to the alias HashLips being spoken by people who have been enabled by the open-source nature of what Daniel does. HashLips now being an Idea and a concept for people to learn from, a community was formed.Art Engine.“It was written to facilitate the creation of NFTs and generate artworks,” said Daniel. “I wrote the program to be user-friendly. The audience loves to learn about NFTS, create NFTs, and learn how to code. So, this was a way for anyone to learn and generate their own NFT collections. The HashLips Art Engine is a way to generate a lot of images quickly and easily. It was created and made open-source.The Art Engine has now enabled the creation of more than 6,000 NFT collections to date – all from within the HashLips community.One of the most captivating aspects of the NFT space is that it's still evolving and highly fluid. What's HashLips' future? Advocating accessibility and inclusivity.As Daniel would say:“Just because you don't understand how this technology works, doesn't mean that you should be left behind.”What I learned about Daniel that isn't in his bio:He's been following his true north as an artist since childhood.He took inspiration from his father who was a classically trained jewelry artist.Daniel was surrounded by materials that were transformed into beauty and he witnessed the creative process as metal morphed into a ring.While looking for gallery representation, he received a mentor, and opportunity to travel to China.As a rite of passage, he left home and found himself in a job where he was introduced to java script. And he a big believer in vision boards and the power of positive thinking.All this said, Daniel, can you share your foray into crypto, token and NFTS at this point?Mentorship and studying in China, was this the impetus of teaching on YouTube?Can you describe The HashLips Art Engine?Are you teaching about blockchain technology and walking people through the process of creating an NFT?Why open-source?Roadmaps and utilities, let's talk about the guilt or need for these pieces of the process.New NFT collectionDoes math appear as art to you?Vision boards and mindsetHashlips websiteHashlips YouTubeHashlips on Twitter Holly Shannon's WebsiteZero To Podcast on AmazonHolly Shannon, LinkedinHolly Shannon, InstagramHolly Shannon, Clubhousehttps://youtu.be/PKCND4FqGLc#HashLips #accessibility #education #empowerment #development #nocode #onboarding #novice #opensource #artengine #SketchyApeBookClub #SABC #Sketchy Lab #nfts #nft #nftart #cryptocurrency #blockchain #metaverse #culturefactor #web3 #smartcontracts #bitcoin #nftartist #nftcollectors #eth #ethereum #youtubers #tiktok #instagram #reels #branding #bitcoin #web3 #smartcontracts #bitcoin #nftartist #nftcollectors #community #decentralizedeconomy
