“The world is changing. Technology is driving economic proliferation around the world. With that increase in technology at scale comes tremendous risk”, says Shawn. Head of Insurance Shawn Ram, shares his transition from Aon to joining the founding team of rapidly expanding Coalition, the San Francisco-based cyber insurtech. “What really drives our value is the fact that our insurance is active. Alongside our cyber product, we provide active risk assessment”, explains Shawn. Having recently raised $250m in a Series F funding round, led by Allianz and supported by Kinetic Partners, Shawn shares the Coalition's approach to data collection and assessing policyholders' vulnerabilities. “We track how often there's vulnerabilities in software, what technology isn't patched appropriately, any lookalike domains or any compromise. It's the same view generally that an adversary would have.” With Coalition currently establishing a UK presence and with further expansion in to APAC planned for 2023, Shawn outlines how the business is aiming to double its headcount over the next 12 months as well maintain its culture amidst scaling. “We desire to remain humble, we sweep the floors, we're authentic”, says Shawn. “When you build a new operation where the individuals that are being hired in country have no background, no experience with the coalition culture, it's critical that you get that right.” Shawn gives an insight in to Coalition's ‘remote-first' culture, the opportunities for high-performing talent and his experience of transitioning from large corporate to tech start-up. “There's something that happens in a start-up environment. There's no alternative, it's like success or failure. There's no middle ground. As a company or as an individual, it breeds a different level of commitment, diligence and vigour.” Shawn concludes with offering advice to anyone seeking to join a tech-enabled business. “Evaluate the mission, evaluate the vision, evaluate the people. The people you surround yourself with are critical. And be honest with yourself. Do you have the attributes needed to grind in a start-up environment? Are you comfortable with the pace and speed in which it operates?"

Over the years, Xebia has organically built domain knowledge across industries and used a platform engineering mindset to help fortune companies digitize. Contact Ajay: Web: https://xebia.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ajaykabra/ Contact Avrohom: Web: https://asktheceo.biz Facebook: AvrohomGottheil Twitter: @avrohomg Instagram: @avrohomg INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS: [00:34] Agile is a big buzzword nowadays; however, it's not as simple as people may think. What are some of the complexities behind agile, and what might people not understand about it? [00:52] Agile has been on the market for nearly 25 years. [01:08] Agile demands that management give up the control to the team – decentralize your decision-making. [01:20] One of the challenges with Agile is that the senior leadership is afraid of giving control to the team. [02:00] Agile is, more than anything, a mindset shift. [03:01] What is the right mindset business leaders need to have in order to succeed with agile? You mentioned discipline. Can you share some examples of success? [07:18] One of the ways Xebia sets itself apart as an industry leader in software development is with its customer training. What is the right way to train clients in new technology? [08:00] The right way to implement solutions for your clients is to co-create them. [11:00] To train customers effectively, you have to sometimes engineer a crisis so that they learn how to react. [13:15] Besides serving clients, Xebia is also very active in the agile community. For example, Xebia organizes the Agile NCR event, which is held annually in the APAC region. Can you share with us a little bit about Agile NCR, as well as some of the upcoming exciting endeavors you will be launching here in North America in the near future? [13:45] A core value of Xebia is to share knowledge. [18:30] How do people connect with you to learn more about Xebia? Ajay: You can connect with Xebia at our website: https://xebia.com, and with me, personally, on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/ajaykabra/.

Mark Militello is the Country Representative of the Bank of New York Mellon. This is his third posting to Japan, though he has had a long history within the Investment banking space. He was most recently with the Bank of New York Mellon in Hong Kong for 10 years before relocating to Tokyo. When leading in Japan, Mr. Militello explains how Japanese employees may not feel comfortable asking specific questions to their clients. This may be due to their lower rank in the company or the Japanese culture. He says that it is important for him to sometimes step in and ask those hard questions to ensure the operation is running smoothly. Although banks as an industry are not known to be creative, Mr. Militello says that creating a safe, relaxed environment for his team, especially the junior employees, can bring out more innovative ideas. Mr. Militello further explains that gaining the trust of Japanese employees can be a challenge for a foreign leader. He adds, letting the Japanese staff know that you have their back, that you are invested in them and will fight for the team with headquarters has helped with establish trust. A way of getting people engaged in the company is to be transparent. Mr. Militello emphasizes that they must try to give everyone a voice and that must go beyond the leadership team. He says that leadership is typically of a certain demographic. Leadership may be men that are of a certain age and background with a traditional way of thinking. This is not representative of the views of the whole company. Mr. Militello emphasizes being mindful of this and trying to hear everyone's views, even people lower down on the hierarchy, is essential. Mr. Militello advises people to come to Japan with an open mind. He also suggests unlearning most of the things that they may have learned, as they may not apply to Japan. Furthermore, Mr. Militello referred to his experience to nearby countries. He says that people in Hong Kong and Korea have more English speakers in the population, whereas in Japan it is a lot less and thus it is important to be mindful of this. He recommends trying to learn Japanese, even if it is a few phrases to show your commitment. Mr. Militello also suggests getting to know Japan outside the office. He says there is a lot to enjoy, especially the green spaces and the fantastic food.

In this Episode I interview McKenna Sweazey who is on a mission to make remote work actually work. Pre-pandemic the physical workplace was challenging but at least you could see people and get a feel for their state of mind. When COVID hit and everyone had to work remotely managers lost that ability to and as a result many employees struggled. McKenna's mission is to teach organizations how to employ empathy to help reconnect remote employees with their team. A very powerful interview for anyone that struggles with the hybrid and remote work environment. McKenna Sweazey is a remote and hybrid management author and coach, having spent years working in global organizations, managing remote teams around the world. She's currently the VP of Marketing for Truthset, a data verification start-up. Previously, she managed B2B marketing for the Financial Times, leading teams in the US, Europe, and APAC from their London headquarters. She's spent years refining her management skills to be as effective in person as from 6,000 miles away. Her passion is helping people harness empathy to better connect with their colleagues to drive success. She also holds an MBA from INSEAD and currently resides in Silicon Valley. mckennasweazey.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/mckenna-sweazey-8627a323/ @McKennaSweazey

“ I am open to working with all adult film entities (mainstream porn and ethical porn) that honor everyone's right to education, right to housing, right to an adequate standard of living, sex workers' rights, age of consent laws, social justice, right to health, victims' rights, science rights, right to education, right to housing, right to work, right to sexuality, human rights, sexual rights, reproductive rights, reproductive health, sexual health, the right to science and culture, rights of the accused, the right to a fair trial; due process; the right to seek redress or a legal remedy; rights of participation in civil society & politics, freedom of association, abiding by the laws of the land, bodily integrity, bodily autonomy, personal boundaries, professional boundaries, the right to assemble, the right to petition, the right of self-defense, the right to vote, ensuring of people's physical and mental integrity, life, and safety; protection from discrimination on grounds such as sex, race, sexual orientation, national origin, color, age, political affiliation, ethnicity, social class, religion, disability, and individual rights such as privacy. Decriminalization or legalization can protect sex workers from violence most effectively, such as through onsite security at venues such as brothels and systems such as panic buttons, as well as the ability for sex workers to report abuse or crimes to the police without the fear of prosecution for committing illegal activity. Prostitution is a career option in which the free market is being taken advantage of and women's claims over their own bodies. Prostitution is a free choice. Prostitution is a transaction where no one is harmed, and the persons involved are consenting adults. Sex trafficking and coercion into the industry can be effectively reduced if sex work is legalized or decriminalized. Sex work could become a legal business, and human rights and worker's rights could be enforced by effective regulation, such as fair pay. Sex work is no more moral or immoral than other jobs. The criminalization of sex workers only exacerbates problems that they are already facing. Therefore, decriminalization or legalization can be a starting point to addressing these issues. The rates of rape could decrease if prostitution were legalized or decriminalized. There will always be people willing to pay for sex and there will always be people willing to offer it. Making consenting sex work a crime will not help these people. The spread of diseases can be hindered through the legalization or decriminalization of prostitution, such as through regular mandated health checks and required condom use.” “I also care about membership of adult industry bodies •An RTA (Restricted to Adults) label on the front of the site. •Mission statements, ethics statements or transparent information about production practices. •A willingness to include behind-the-scenes content and performer interviews. •A focus on consent in descriptions and within the porn itself. •Visit the social media profiles of producers and see what they say and what is said about them. Labour practices have become a major focus in discussions of ethical porn. The US-based Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) have created a model bill of rights which articulates the standards that performers want upheld on porn sets. These include the right to know who they are performing with, what sex acts are expected and the right to decline requested sex acts. The bill of rights also deals with performer safety on set, specifying the right to safe sex supplies, food and water and sexual health information such as STD tests. The document also insists on the right of performers to be paid fairly and on time. APAC has a performer code of conduct which members agree to abide by. This specifies professional conduct expected of performers when working. https://www.freespeechcoalition.com/code-of-ethics.” I do abide all of these things proudly! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

Jason has a passion for exploring how the world works, the know-how for making it better, a deep understanding of consumers, and even has a degree in neuroscience. Horst and Jason discussed: > How 12 year olds next door could be completing MR surveys to buy electric scooters (and you may not even know it). This behaviour is likely more widespread than we think it is (or accept it to be). To put this into persona talk, Fabricated Frank sure does answer a lot of surveys. > Automatic fraudster detection and checks aren't good enough anymore. There is more that's needed to be done in order to clean up this issue. > There is a significant need for panel and field suppliers to truly verify the identity of people. > The market research space really needs to care about this – not just pretend we do. > On top of compensation, the industry really needs to focus on survey experience (SX), in order to recapture the stature and reputation that has been lost by the industry over the past decade or so. > And of course, that having something that you are passionate about outside your professional career and even outside your comfort zone, whether that's a side hustle, a hobby or something that truly challenges you – often makes you a better professional. Enjoy the show.

Lured Up Podcast 232 Record Date - 9/8/2022 Publish Date - 9/9/2022 There was plenty to talk about this week as we had our first experiences with the Season of Light! After a few days of vanilla spawns, an Inkay Limited Research and our normal weekly rotations, we have a pretty good feel for the Season. So far it has been overwhelmingly positive, even though the boxes in the shop may make us ill. Clefairy Commotion is this weekend and we still don't know what to expect. It just seems like something else is coming, but we can't figure it out. Otherwise it will be just like a 3 hour Spotlight and I don't think we want that! Roggenrola is our next Community Day Pokémon and the group bonuses are a thing of the past! We will have to see if Trainers feel the burn of its removal, as it has become a nice boost over the last few events. Safari Zone in Singapore was also announced as APAC is looking to be full on Safari this fall. Finally we round things out with a Mega Alakazam Raid Guide and Battle Party! Pokebattler gives us the scoop and we put together some diverse parties, even though the counters are fairly straightforward!
