AFMC/PK Podcast Episode 41: Follow-up: Collaborating with Industry - Chelsea Fulham & Abby Doorn In this episode, we follow-up with our guests from episode 36, Chelsea Fulham and Abby Doorn, who are Air Force Contracting professionals that completed Education with Industry (EWI) fellowships. Chelsea's work with Amazon and Abby's work with Anduril really got them thinking about how collaborative industry is with its partners and how Government Acquisition may better take advantage of opportunities to collaborate with industry to meet its goals. As part of their EWI capstone project, Chelsea and Abby worked with Data Analytics students from UC Berkeley to develop a tool that would allow companies doing business with the Government a vehicle to provide feedback on the acquisition process. Chelsea and Abby share the data they received from industry partners and identify which indicators show the biggest opportunities for improving the acquisition timeline. They also give advice to future EWI fellows as they collaborate with industry to learn and improve the way we do business.

This special edition of the aBlogtoWatch Weekly podcast is brought to you by Bulgari, recorded earlier this year at Geneva Watch Days 2022. Rick and David sit down with Fabrizio Buonamassa, Product Creation Executive Director at Bulgari, to discuss how Bulgari is pushing the limits of watch design through cross-cultural collaboration.Founded in 1884 by Greek silversmith Sotirio Bulgari, the eponymous Bulgari brand has become synonymous with luxury, with a reputation for stunning jewelry creations and, more recently, exceptional watchmaking. After acquiring the personal brands of Gerald Genta and Daniel Roth in 2000, Bulgari's ascendance in the watch industry was almost guaranteed. Buonamassa joined in 2001, eventually moving into his current role leading the brand's watch design, but it wasn't until 2012---a year after the brand joined the LVMH group---that the Bulgari Octo we know today was introduced. Distinguished by its angular octagonal case, it built off designs from the Gerald Genta brand catalog, and, along with the Serpenticollection, has come to define Bulgari watchmaking. In 2014, though, the brand pushed things further with the Octo Finissimo, an ultrathin hand-wound timepiece that leaned into the original Octo's aesthetic and set the stage for an astonishing string of record-breaking watches and breathtaking collaboration pieces.In this special episode, Buonamassa builds on the brand's stunning collaborations with Japanese architects Tadao Ando and Kazuyo Sejimato explore how the similarities and differences between Japanese and Italian ideals of design and beauty make for a perfect partnership, and what it's like collaborating with outside designers halfway around the world. Buonamassa goes further, though, musing on the concept of beauty, the emotionality of design, and the challenges and rewards of collaboration. Plus, he compares Italian and Japanese cars, and Rick gets him to reveal his personal design process and his biggest regret.

For this week on the Crossing Borders podcast, we're revisiting one of our greatest hits episodes featuring Javier García, Director of FEMSA Ventures.Javier García knew that there were at least 50 ways of doing corporate venture capital the wrong way, which is why he took a couple of years to figure out how to do it right with FEMSA. Today, Javier is the Director of Corporate Venturing and Growth Capital at FEMSA's corporate venture capital fund. FEMSA is a publicly-traded conglomerate company that started out as a brewery and has produced popular brands like Dos Equis and Tecate. Founded in 1890, FEMSA has since branched out into other business verticals such as drugstores, gas stations, and restaurants, including OXXO, the largest chain of small-format stores in Mexico.I sat down with Javier to talk about his transition from consulting to working at FEMSA and getting involved with Latin America's venture capital ecosystem. We discuss innovation in corporations and Javier shares tips on how to collaborate with startups and large corporations.Getting a slice of the innovation pieAccording to Javier, FEMSA's venture capital arm started as a mission to collaborate with the most disruptive external sources of innovation. He started to learn about the different ways to approach this collaboration by investigating and conducting over 30 interviews with people involved in the corporate venture capital world. Choosing the right way was another challenge.Learn more about how Javier built an operational design for FEMSA to collaborate with the best startups on their business platform in this episode of Crossing Borders.Engaging with the ecosystem from a perspective of learningAfter studying mechanical engineering at university, Javier considered working in the aerospace industry as one of his potential paths. However, his first experience working for a consulting firm made him realize he liked problem-solving and that he wanted to be in a space where he would be closer to the execution of solutions and be continuously faced with learning opportunities. He explains that he found the ideal formula working with FEMSA and learning about Latam's venture capital ecosystem.Listen to this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about how Javier got involved in Latam's venture capital ecosystem. A misalignment of incentivesCollaborating with a corporate venture capital fund can be very different from working with a traditional VC. Javier explains that there tends to be a misalignment of expectations between big corporations and entrepreneurs with regard to what actually happens at the startup. He sees this confusion during startup pitches where the entrepreneur prioritizes an investment over the actual collaboration.Find out more about Javier's recommendations for working with big corporations in this episode of the Crossing Borders podcast.Javier García is making amazing collaborations happen between startups and corporations through FEMSA's venture capital arm. His thirst for knowledge and his passion for problem-solving and execution are key to positioning corporate venture capital funds as attractive business partners.Outline of this episode:[1:41] - About FEMSA[7:30] - Mechanical engineering in Monterrey[11:55] - FEMSA's investment strategy[23:52] - Recommendations for working with big companies[29:38] - Lessons learned from collaborating with startups[36:24] - Advice to Javier's younger self[38:16] - Books, blogs, & podcast recommendations[42:11] - What's next for Javier and FEMSA ventures?Resources & people mentioned:FEMSAJavier GarcíaOXXODos EquisTecateBain & CompanyBooks: Masters of Corporate Venture Capital, Corporate Venturing, The Three-Body Problem, Atomic HabitsEp 26 Mak Gutierrez, Supporting Makers and Startups In Guadalajara

As we look around to see what is enduring in our society, it is the work that was accomplished through loving relationships and mutual understanding. The power of love-driven leadership has the potential to change the world; and in healthcare, it can transform the lives of people undergoing immense suffering. Healthcare leaders must collaborate on solutions to overcome barriers in health equity through a deeply rooted commitment to social justice and love to improve the human condition. Leaders in population health must be willing to step forward – even if it is uncomfortable – to build a community of love that will last forever. On the Race to Value this week, we interview Geoffrey M. Roche – a leader in healthcare innovation, future-focused strategy, DE&I, and workforce development. This is a conversation that all healthcare leaders should hear. Geoffrey engaged this interview with utmost authenticity as leader with a willingness to get in “good trouble” for speaking about the issues that many would prefer to ignore or not accept as real. In this podcast, you will learn about the power of community partnerships in improving health equity to overcome the “political determinants of health” that prevent societal progress. You will also learn about the paramount importance of workforce development and scalable educational solutions in catalyzing a transformation in care delivery and culture change that values the moral imperative of value-based care. The empowerment and education of our workforce holds the key to eliminating workforce burnout and moral injury! And lastly, you will gain perspective on love-driven leadership that can overcome toxic tribalism and hyper-polarization in our society. Geoffrey is a proponent of love-driven leadership and advocacy for our most vulnerable in society, and his leadership in health equity has been recognized at a national level. If you need inspiration to overcome the inertia in your health system towards real and impactful change, don't miss this very important conversation!

Steve Larsen was my guest today at the PackSize booth at the show. They also announced a super fantastic integration with Boot Barn today. Here's the video and press releasehttps://www.packsize.com/customer-spotlight/bootbarn/BOOT BARN, INDUSTRIAL PROCUREMENT SERVICES (INDPRO), AND PACKSIZE COLLABORATE TO COMBAT LABOR SHORTAGES WITH CUSTOM AUTOMATION SOLUTIONSPacksize technology redefines packaging to support sustainability initiativesand meet customer demands SALT LAKE CITY, October 25, 2022 – Packsize today announced it is partnering with Boot Barn (NYSE: BOOT) to transform the retailer's warehouses through custom automation solutions addressing the impact of labor shortages, while bolstering the company's sustainability initiatives. Boot Barn sought out INDPRO and Packsize to transform its boot storage system, save and reallocate labor, and improve throughput.“The partnership we have with Packsize and INDPRO is already having a significant impact on our throughput and our ability to provide a right-size box for every customer order that leaves our Wichita distribution center,” said Joey Kinnevan, Director of Fulfillment at Boot Barn. “As this year's holiday season approaches, we're more confident than ever in our ability to meet and exceed our customers' expectations to make this a successful quarter, and we're excited about the future possibilities of this partnership.”Utilizing multiple packaging platforms from Packsize, Boot Barn now has the capacity to move 1,000 packages every hour from its Wichita distribution center.* The unique all-in-one X7 solution from Packsize handles most of the e-commerce orders – 75% through its highly automated inline fulfillment system that creates right-sized boxes for every order.* The Packsize X4 and IQ Fusion solutions handle the remaining orders, working together to offer flexible and cost-efficient options, especially during peak season.These solutions support Boot Barn's sustainability commitment by reducing waste and using significantly less corrugated than standard or off-the-shelf boxes. Additionally, leveraging Packsize's products helps increase freight efficiency by maximizing cubic volume on transportation vehicles and eliminating the need for wasteful void fill, thereby lowering Boot Barn's carbon footprint. In a recent study conducted by Packsize, such sustainability efforts were shown to increase end-consumer satisfaction: nearly 1 in 4 say they would either switch to purchasing from more environmentally responsible companies or reduce their online shopping due to environmental concerns.“Collaborating with Boot Barn and INDPRO to create a data-driven, custom automation and sustainable solution has been incredibly rewarding for our partnership,” said Rod Gallaway, CEO of Packsize. “Utilizing best-in-class solutions from Packsize, Boot Barn and INDPRO are redefining the possibilities of packaging to improve the consumer's experience, warehouse throughput and sustainability efforts.”“Looking at the specifics of Boot Barn's needs, Packsize was our natural choice as an automation partner on this project,” said Mark Juelich, President of INDPRO. “After the recent success in Wichita, we are excited to work with Packsize again in the very near future.”Boot Barn's use of the Packsize system creates right-sized boxes that perfectly fit each order to ship more than 4,000 shipments to customers daily. At Boot Barn's Wichita Distribution Center, which spans 140,000 square feet, employees can now simply scan and load SKUs into the system to ship products out in the right-sized boxes instead of packaging by hand, reducing the likelihood of damage and increasing packaging efficiency even for the most complex orders.About Packsize® Packsize® transforms how businesses and their customers experience packaging – from packing to unboxing.

This topic came from Aaron, our CEO of Freedom Family of Companies. Last week during our meeting he said, it's like having an army of CEOs here, where everybody is enabled and empowered to make a decision. And we thought it was a really great concept to talk about and it's something that we've been trying to do for a very long time in our company is empowering other people to be able to lead and to make decisions.Download your Free Private Lending Report here: www.freedomcapitalinvestments.com/lendingDownload your Freedom # worksheet here: www.freedomcapitalinvestments.com/worksheetClick on the Social Media links below and listen in on our Private Group Conversations about how to achieve Financial Freedom through a consistent pipeline of passive income investments: https://www.facebook.com/groups/freedomthroughpassiveincomehttps://www.linkedin.com/groups/14048250—————————————————————————What we learned through Aaron's leadership is that they really need to know the other parts of the company so they know how their company affects the other company and see the big picture. And that's why we hired a CEO. We hired a CEO because we knew somebody else could take the company to a different level. We knew somebody else with more experience could be able to take it up. This army of CEOs mentality, what we're trying to bring to light for anybody is that this is a huge boost. Collaborating and empowering the team to really get in, dig in and get nosy about other parts of the business. So they can understand how their role affects other roles, and how they together can make it better, in order to elevate the company into serving your clients better.Join our groups on Facebook and LinkedIn.https://www.facebook.com/groups/freedomthroughpassiveincomehttps://www.linkedin.com/groups/14048250www.FreedomCapitalInvestments.comInvest Smart.

Directed by Tobias Lindholm ("A Highjacking," "A War"), centers on a nurse (Academy Award-winner Jessica Chastain) who becomes uspicious that her colleague (Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne) is responsible for a series of mysterious patient deaths. Risking her own life to uncover the truth, she is at the center of an anxious, gripping thriller based on true events.

#107: In conservation photography, the imagery itself is just one part of the work that we really do.It's step one. Step two is putting that imagery to work for the conservation causes that we care about.I have such a thing for creative ways of visual storytelling that draw people in and allow them to have an immersive, amazing experience. It helps go beyond being *told* a conservation message and instead experiencing why that conservation message is important and internalizing it. This is something conservation visual storyteller Lianna Nixon has become an expert at. As a photographer, filmmaker, and educator, Lianna explores using all kinds of different storytelling and technology tools to build experiences around climate change.She brings together activism, identity development, learning outcomes, and more to build projects that will, frankly, kind of blow your mind.In this interview, Leanna talks about:her recent creative projects, including being part of the MOSAiC expeditionimportant ways of thinking about how we approach the projects and also the people that we work withthinking about your subjects as collaborators in the storytelling processethically telling the stories of communities that aren't your ownYou're sure to walk away with a wealth of creative inspiration for your next visual story project.

Focus on working “on the business” Rather than “in the business” Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner, and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast, talks about growing your slice of the pie by creating a bigger pie. Collaborating with more people lessens the percentage you take, but with everything growing exponentially, what you receive ultimately increases as well. In this episode, Jason shares his insights on Phantom Equity and other viable options to grow your business, as well as how exactly collaborating with more people would help him develop his businesses in the long run. 3 KEY POINTS: Realize that you can't do everything on your own. Allow key people to partake in the upside. Focus on working "on the business" rather than "in the business." EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Allow others to partake in the upside as this may be the driving force for others. Over time, you need to let go, trust, and delegate your other responsibilities. Creating a separate legal entity to manage a different business has been complicated due to separate tax returns, bank accounts, payrolls, etc. Jason came across the idea of creating partnerships with other clinical experts to grow the pie. Jason recommends exploring Phantom Equity as an option for your company. As Sam Walton mentioned in his books: Allow key people in your company to partake in the upside. Sam Walton's slice of the pie got smaller in terms of percentage, but since the pie got bigger, the value of his percentage grew exponentially by giving away stocks. Jason is currently teaching 3 courses that have been developed over 5 years. To lighten his load, he wants to partner with others that can provide coaching on his behalf. TWEETABLE QUOTES: "If everything always has to go through you, that may eventually become a bottleneck in your business." – Jason A.

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Logan Hinners, PF & QF's lead graphic designer, for a conversation with Joel Pilcher about taking a leap of faith to chase his childhood dream of becoming a wildlife artist. The guys also talk about Hinners' vision for the rooster and bobwhite quail that Pilcher created using charcoal, and became the images embodying PF & QF's monumental Call of the Uplands campaign to improve 9 million acres of wildlife habitat. Episode Highlights: • In a fascinating portion of the conversation, Pilcher talks about the major differences in his process and mental focus as he works on fine art projects versus digital graphic design artwork. • Pilcher's stunning crowing rooster and whistling bobwhite artwork are now available on t-shirts through our partners in conservation at Orvis. And thanks to Orvis' generosity, all proceeds from these shirt sales will go directly to PF & QF's Call of the Uplands campaign.
