Small and medium agricultural enterprises (agri-SMEs) are Africa's largest employer and economic engine—and the key to transforming food systems and improving food security for the continent. Yet three out of four agri-SMEs can't access formal bank financing, and are too large for microfinance, creating an estimated $100 billion gap in unmet demand for financing. How can donor governments, development finance institutions, African governments, and the private sector catalyze action to strengthen food value chains in Africa through innovative financing, and better support small and medium agricultural enterprises? The event is co-hosted with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This special Leadership Panel on strengthening food value chains was held September 18, 2023 at the World Economic Forum's New York headquarters. - Speakers: William Samoei Ruto, President of Kenya, Office of the President of Kenya; Scott Nathan, Chief Executive Officer, U.S. International Development Finance Corporation; Samantha Power, Administrator, US Agency for International Development (USAID); Rebecca Enonchong, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, AppsTech;Janet L.

We've all seen the studies that have shown how a diverse workforce leads to better productivity, increased profits and market share, and greater creativity and innovation. But with so many positive outcomes related to diverse workforces, why are so many organizations failing to attract and retain a diversified workforce – including in the senior leadership ranks? What are we getting wrong and what should we be doing differently? According to my guests on this episode of my “Leadership Biz Cafe” podcast, Bertina Ceccarelli and Susanne Tedrick, the key is understanding how to use innovation principles to drive an organization's DEI efforts. Bertina is the Chief Executive Officer of NPower, one of the most successful non-profits in North America committed to helping young adults and military-connected individuals launch tech careers. And Susanne is the author of Women of Color in Tech and a cloud computing technical trainer for a Fortune 500 technology company. Together, they co-authored the book “Innovating For Diversity – Lessons from Top Companies Achieving Business Success through Inclusivity”, which makes the compelling case for why diversity and innovation are not just interconnected, but how innovation can actually help organizations succeed in their DEI initiatives. Of course, to succeed in these efforts, we first have to get a better understanding of what these terms of diversity, equity and inclusion really mean. And I'm grateful to Bertina and Susanne for not only helping to bring clarity to this in our conversation, but for also providing practical advice for how leaders can succeed at creating a more diverse workplace that will not only benefit their organization, but also those their organization serves. No matter what you might think about diversity in today's workplaces, I want to strongly encourage you to give this episode a listen as I'm sure some of what Bertina and Susanne share in this conversation will surprise you and definitely give you some food for thought.

The Impact of Speed in Winning and Retaining Clients Shep Hyken interviews Howard Moodycliffe, Chief Executive Officer of Timetoreply. He talks about how prompt communication can help companies build trust, enhance credibility, and increase customer satisfaction. Top Takeaways: In today's fast-paced world, customers expect timely responses across various communication channels. Whether it's email, phone calls, or social media, consistent and efficient interaction is essential to meet customer expectations. Speaking of customers expecting quick and timely responses, if they wanted to wait, they would have waited to make ask their question or make their request in the first place. Businesses should value their customers' time and demonstrate respect by delivering quick and consistent responses. This not only helps in acquiring new clients but also strengthens customer loyalty and fosters long-term relationships. Email remains a dominant channel for B2B communication. Companies across different industries should customize their response speed based on the preferences of their customers. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, and understanding industry-specific expectations is essential to succeed. Consistency is crucial in providing an outstanding customer experience. It is not enough to respond quickly at the beginning of the customer relationship. You must always respond quickly. Maintaining consistent response times builds trust and sets proper expectations. Finding the right balance between speed and quality is essential. While quick response times are important, businesses should also ensure that their responses are accurate, helpful, and provide value to the customer.

About Buck Mims and National Public Safety Group: Buck is active in the ministry at Grace Church of Southern Pines, where and his wife Kimberly also counsel individuals and married couples. Buck and Kimberly are also the proud parents of two adult children and their little Shih Tzu, Layla Lu Mims. I have over 33 years in the public safety arena. For years, I worked in public safety software sales at a Tier 1 provider, with considerable experience implementing large consortium systems, including one 10 County system of CAD, RMS, Mobile, and Civil software. With all of the volatility in the software market, I started National Public Safety Group, so we could offer a consulting firm that really understood the Public Safety Software industry. Having been a sworn officer myself for over 30 years, I also have a passion to help agencies. I have always been an advocate to ensure my customers were taken care of, which isn't always easy in corporate America. That is not the case at our company. We are 100% going above and beyond to give great service and value to them. We guarantee our services by providing a cancel anytime contract, so if you are not happy with our work, you are not stuck in a contract. We will live and die by our service and value, and I can do that because I know we will give our customers our best. I am very excited about all we are doing today and what is coming over the next few years. At NPSG, you are assigned a team specific to your needs. We have subject matter experts for each solution and phase of your project. As we are a concierge consulting firm, each project is assigned a project manager, the appropriate subject matter experts for products, selection experts, and procurement experts. Having our team providing you with facts and putting things in the appropriate context allows your agency to make smart and educated decisions. This helps out agencies and their software providers have more successful projects. This level of involvement is part of our standard concierge service. Our goal is to take the work load off of your team and anxiety out of your project. As our consultants mainly come from public safety and working at public safety software companies, we understand what it means to have a strong partnership with your provider. So part of our goal is very importantly to help build a strong relationship with the software provider and your agency. We don't just say we focus mainly on software. We highly focus on the public safety software industry, it's products and providers. Besides over 90% of our work involving public safety software consulting, we internally have training to help our consultants understand the industry better. We teach them how to continuously stay up to date with information they need to be a successful public safety software consultant. We also have three different tools we are building to help our employees and customers directly understand the differences of the providers in the market.

Data Center Frontier editors Matt Vincent and David Chernicoff recently caught up with Cyxtera's Field CTO Holland Barry on the occasion of Cyxtera and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announcing a new collaboration to help simplify customers' hybrid IT strategies. Cyxtera is now leveraging HPE's GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to support an enterprise bare metal platform. The podcast discussion extends to how Cyxtera is presently focused on supporting AI workloads in data centers and collaborating with HPE to offer a multi-hybrid cloud strategy. Barry revealed during the podcast that Cyxtera already supports 70 kilowatt racks in 18 markets, and is discussing expanded deployments with its customers and partners. Barry added that many present customers are considering moving to private cloud platforms, due to rising public cloud costs and unexpected fees. Barry said, "My function here at Cyxtera deals largely with the technologies that we both implement internally and also that we deploy within the data centers themselves to make sure that experience of being in the data center colo facility is seamless, feels as much like cloud as it can in terms of the provisioning of services, how we bill for things, things like that." He added, "Generally speaking, I'm a technologist at heart and I just want to make sure that what we're building is what's useful for the market to consume." Here's a list of key points discussed on the podcast: 2:01 - Barry talks about Cyxtera's vision for supporting AI workloads in data centers, including cooling technologies, network speed, power designs, and accommodating adjacencies with edge and public cloud platforms. 4:18 - DCF's Chernicoff asks if Cyxtera will offer 70 kilowatt racks a la Digital Realty. Barry explains that Cyxtera already supports this capacity in 18 of its markets, and is in active discussions with customers and partners over an expansion. 5:40 - Barry discusses how Cyxtera's collaboration with HPE addresses rising cloud costs and furthers a multi-hybrid cloud strategy, including Cyxtera's new enterprise bare metal platform and options for opex financing models. 7:53 - Use cases for customers moving to the HPE GreenLake solution via Cyxtera are discussed, including repatriating cloud workloads and tech refreshes. 15:03 - Asked about the convergence of cloud and hybrid IT strategies, Barry says that Cyxtera views themselves as part of such transformations and says the provider is up front with its customers about what workloads are best suited for their platform. The trend of recalibrating workloads from the public cloud to data centers for better cost management is also discussed. 18:22 - Barry expounds on how egress fees and other unexpected costs can lead to a "death by 1000 cuts" situation for public cloud users, driving them to consider private cloud options 19:57 - Barry observes that many customers are realizing the costs of the public cloud and considering moving to a private cloud solution, and emphasizes the importance of Cyxtera making this transition as easy as possible through technology choices and partnerships. 21:57 - Barry comments on the new Cyxtera partnership with HPE in the context of providing choices and solutions to make moving customer workloads to their venue as easy as possible, with the goal of building a multi-hybrid cloud reality in the future. Background on Cyxtera Cyxtera Technologies operates a global network of 60 data centers, supports 2,300 customers, and had $746 million in revenue in 2022. The company was formed in 2016 when Medina Capital, led by former Terremark CEO Manuel Medina, teamed with investors including BC Partners to buy the data center portfolio of CenturyLink for $2.15 billion. It was at that time one of several data center players seeking to build a colocation business atop a portfolio of data centers spun off by telecom companies. This April, Data Center Frontier's Rich Miller reported that Cyxtera Technologies was reportedly fielding interest from suitors as it sought to reduce its debt load. Data Center Dynamics at that time shared that Cyxtera was exploring options for a sale or capital raise, citing a Bloomberg story that said private equity suitors were studying the company's operations. Shares of Cyxtera had fallen sharply in value during that timeframe and were trading at 31 cents a share at one point, giving the company a market capitalization of about $55 million, a far cry from the $3.4 billion valuation placed on the company when it went public in 2021 through a merger with Starboard Value Acquisition Corp. In May, as shares of Cyxtera fell to new lows, DCF reported lenders for the company said they would provide the colocation provider with $50 million in new funding, allowing it more time to arrange a sale or line up new capital. In June, the colocation provider filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. After working for months to find a buyer or reduce its debt load, the company decided it would now restructure through a pre-packaged bankruptcy. The Chapter 11 filing was part of an arrangement with its lenders, who retained the right to gain a controlling equity interest in the company under terms of a restructuring agreement. At the time of the bankruptcy filing, some of the company's lenders committed to provide $200 million in financing to enable Cyxtera to continue operating as it restructures. "Cyxtera expects to use the Chapter 11 process to strengthen the company's financial position, meaningfully deleverage its balance sheet and facilitate the business's long-term success," the company said in a press release." More details have been made available on Cyxtera's restructuring web site. Cyxtera subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, Germany and Singapore are not included in the bankruptcy case, which was filed in New Jersey. Dgtl Infra's Mary Zhang has done significant recent reporting over the summer on the story of Cyxtera's existing lease rejections in wake of the bankruptcy filing, as well as charting the company's timeline extension for its bankruptcy-led sale process into late September. In his June reporting on Cyxtera's bankruptcy filing, DCF's Miller noted that: "Since Cyxtera leases many of its data centers, Cyxtera's Chapter 11 filing creates a potential challenge for its landlords. Cyxtera leases space in 15 facilities operated by Digital Realty, representing $61.5 million in annual revenue, or about 1.7 percent of Digital's annual revenue. It also leases space in 6 data centers owned by Digital Core REIT, a Singapore-based public company sponsored by Digital Realty. That includes two sites in Los Angeles, three in Silicon Valley and one in Frankfurt. The $16.3 million in annual rent from Cyxtera represents 22.3 percent of revenue for Digital Core REIT. A bankruptcy filing provides debtors with the opportunity to reject leases to reduce their real estate costs. In its press release, Cyxtera noted that it "is continuing to evaluate its data center footprint, consistent with its commitment to optimizing operations." An August report from Bloomberg stated that Cyxtera had drawn interest for its assets from multiple parties, including Brookfield Infrastructure Partners and Digital Realty Trust Inc., according to people with knowledge of the situation. as reported by Bloomberg's Reshmi Basu. In a recent email to this editor regarding Cyxtera, DCF's Miller opined further: "The key questions for Cyxtera are really all about the bankruptcy outcome, and where that stands. The future could be very different for Cyxtera depending who the winning bidder is and whether they would reject leases. For example, Digital Realty is reported to be one of the bidders. That makes sense, as Cyxtera leases 12 facilities from them and DLR has a vested interest in protecting that income. But if Digital wins the auction, do they keep leasing space in Cyxtera's many non-Digital sites? Or do they reject those leases and consolidate? The auction winner will guide future strategy for Cyxtera. And it could be very different if it's a private equity firm vs. a strategic buyer like Digital Realty." On August 7, concurrent with its business update for Q2, Cyxtera announced that it had reached a key milestone in its Chapter 11 process by filing a proposed plan of reorganization with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey, and said it had reached an agreement with its lenders to optimize the company's capital structure and reduce its pre-filing funded debt by more than $950 million. In its Q2 update, the company said it had delivered solid growth in total revenue, recurring revenue, core revenue and transaction adjusted EBITDA. Cyxtera's August 7 press release added that negotiations around the company's sale alternative remained active. According to a press release, the proposed reorganization plan is supported by certain of Cyxtera's lenders who collectively hold over two-thirds of the company's outstanding first lien debt, and are parties to Cyxtera's previously announced restructuring support agreement. The company said the proposed plan provides flexibility for the company to pursue a balance sheet recapitalization or a sale of the business. Cyxtera noted that if the plan is approved and a recapitalization is consummated, the lenders have committed to support a holistic restructuring of the company's balance sheet. Such a restructuring would eliminate more than $950 million of Cyxtera's pre-filing debt and provide the company with enhanced financial flexibility to invest in its business for the benefit of its customers and partners. For Q2 of 2023, Cyxtera said its total revenue increased by $14.9 million, or 8.1% YoY, to $199.0 million in the second quarter of 2023. On a constant currency basis, the company's total revenue increased by $15.1 million, or 8.2% YoY. Recurring revenue increased by $15.8 million, or 9.1% YoY, to $190.0 million in the second quarter. Cyxtera added that its core revenue increased by $17.4 million, or 10.3% YoY, to $186.2 million in the second quarter. Finally, the company said its transaction Adjusted EBITDA increased by $6.4 million, or 10.7%, to $66.4 million and increased by $6.5 million, or 10.9% YoY, on a constant currency basis, in the second quarter. Carlos Sagasta, Cyxtera's Chief Financial Officer, said, “We are pleased to have delivered another quarter of solid growth across the business, underscoring the strength of our offering and the value we create for our global customers. We expect to continue building on this momentum as we successfully complete the process to strengthen our financial position for the long term.” The press release added that in either a recapitalization or sale scenario, the company remains on track to emerge from the court-supervised process no later than the fall of this year. The company said it had received multiple qualified bids to date. Final bids from interested parties in the sale process were originally due on August 18, a deadline which came and went. An auction slated for August 30 was also cancelled. Nelson Fonseca, Cyxtera's Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We continue to make important progress in our court-supervised process, while demonstrating solid performance across our business. Filing this plan with the support of our lenders provides us a path to emerge in a significantly stronger financial position.” Here are links to some recent DCF articles on Cyxtera: Colocation Provider Cyxtera Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cyxtera Gets $50 Million Funding, More Time to Seek a Buyer As Stock Price Slumps, Cyxtera Reportedly Mulling Capital Raise or Sale Cyxtera Goes Public as Starboard SPAC Acquisition Closes Cyxtera to Go Public Through $3.4 Billion Merger With Starboard SPAC

If we are willing to change the paradigm, shifting our focus from treating illness at the individual level to focusing on improving the psychological health of all people in our neighborhoods and communities, we can create a system of interventions across the continuum of the population that is all aimed at everyone's health no matter where they're at. In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Dr. Arthur Evans. Arthur is a clinical and community psychologist, healthcare innovator, policymaker, and the Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice President of the American Psychological Association, the leading scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States. Before joining APA in March 2017, Arthur spent 12 years as commissioner of Philadelphia's Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services transforming that agency's approach to serving a wide range of individuals with complex needs. Arthur has received national and international recognition for his work, including being recognized as an “Advocate for Action” by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, receiving the American Medical Association's top government service award in healthcare, receiving the National Council of Behavioral Health's Visionary Leadership Award, and more. Together Graham and Arthur discuss fostering equitable health, challenges of our current system of treatment, and strategies to addressing population health. We can look at the world differently. If we can see the value we bring as mental health professionals, and we're partnering with people to really address the broader mental needs of the community, we can get out of the current system and bring our expertise in fulfilling ways.
