Dr. Marcus Collins is an award-winning marketer and cultural translator with one foot in the world of practice—serving as the Chief Strategy Officer at Wieden+Kennedy New York—and one foot in the world of academia—as a marketing professor at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. His book For The Culture: The Power Behind What We Buy, What We Do, and Who We Want to Be examines the influence of culture on consumption and unpacks how everyone, from marketers to activists, can leverage culture to get people to take action. Marcus's understanding of brand strategy and consumer behavior has helped him bridge the academic-practitioner gap for blue-chip brands and startups. He is a recipient of Advertising Age's 40 Under 40 award and Crain's Business' 40 Under 40 award and an inductee into the American Advertising Federation's Advertising Hall of Achievement. Most recently, he was recognized by Thinkers50 and Deloitte among their class of 2023 Radar List of 30 thinkers with the ideas most likely to shape the future. Before joining Wieden+Kennedy, he served as the Chief Consumer Connections Officer at Doner Advertising and led Social Engagement at Steve Stoute's advertising agency, Translation. Before his advertising tenure, Marcus began his career in music and tech with a startup he co-founded before working on iTunes + Nike sport music initiatives at Apple and running digital strategy for Beyoncé. In this episode, we dive deep into marketing and where brands go wrong. We discuss why balancing short-term activation with long-term brand growth is essential and the danger of doing things to be seen rather than heard. Marcus shares his expertise on culture, why we need a language to define it, and the importance of perspective in shaping your worldview.

Thriving Project Management Thursdays - Project Management in the Age of Automation and RoboticsWelcome to another episode of "Thriving Project Management Thursdays." In today's episode, we'll be exploring the topic of project management in the age of automation and robotics. With the rise of artificial intelligence and robotics, project managers are facing new challenges and opportunities. How can project managers adapt to this new era of automation and leverage technology to achieve better project outcomes? Let's dive in.The Impact of Automation and Robotics on Project Management:Automation and robotics have the potential to transform the way we work and manage projects. According to a report by McKinsey, up to 800 million jobs could be automated by 2030. This will undoubtedly have a significant impact on project management, as tasks that were once performed by humans are now being automated.However, this also presents new opportunities for project managers. By leveraging automation and robotics, project managers can streamline processes, reduce costs, and increase efficiency. For example, robots can perform repetitive tasks, such as data entry or assembly line work, freeing up human workers to focus on more complex and strategic tasks.Moreover, automation and robotics can also improve project safety. Robots can perform dangerous tasks, such as working in hazardous environments or handling toxic materials, reducing the risk of injury or illness for human workers.Challenges of Automation and Robotics in Project Management:While automation and robotics offer many benefits, they also present new challenges for project managers. One of the biggest challenges is managing the transition to a more automated workforce. This may require reskilling and upskilling existing employees, as well as hiring new workers with specialized skills.Moreover, project managers must also ensure that automation and robotics are integrated seamlessly into their projects. This requires careful planning and coordination, as well as ensuring that the technology is compatible with existing systems and processes.Another challenge is ensuring that automation and robotics are implemented in an ethical and responsible manner. As AI and robotics become more advanced, there are concerns about the impact on jobs and the potential for bias or discrimination in decision-making. Project managers must be aware of these risks and work to mitigate them.Real-Life Examples of Automation and Robotics in Project Management:There are many examples of how automation and robotics are being used in project management. For example, construction companies are using drones to survey job sites and monitor progress, reducing the need for manual inspections. Similarly, manufacturing companies are using robots to perform repetitive tasks, such as painting or welding.Another example is in the field of project management software. AI-powered project management tools can help automate tasks such as scheduling, resource allocation, and risk management. This not only saves time but also allows project managers to focus on higher-level strategic tasks.Experts' Views on Automation and Robotics in Project Management:According to a report by Deloitte, automation and robotics will play a significant role in the future of project management. However, the report notes that "the human factor remains critical in managing projects effectively."In an interview with Harvard Business Review, futurist and author Amy Webb notes that "technology is an enabler, not a replacement" for human skills in project management. She emphasizes the importance...
Anees Pretorius and Cono Onorato — co-founders of Bean ($1.7mm in funding) — on the pursuit of their vision to reimagine the global accounting industry and elevate the profession into the digital age.Anees Pretorius, a former Big 4 Accountant, is the CEO of Bean, a market network for specialized accounting services. Originally from South Africa, Anees previously held positions at Deloitte in Cape Town and San Francisco, and later at EY in Cleveland. During his time as a consultant, he worked alongside High-growth and Fortune companies, providing compliance and strategic services. However, it was his experience in the Bay Area working alongside some of the most influential and technologically progressive companies in the world that inspired him to think beyond the traditional constraints inherent in accounting and financial services.Cono Onorato is the CTO at Bean, with over 15 years of experience building, designing, and deploying apps across many industries, including finance, healthcare, and education. Cono worked as a consultant for Fortune 500 clients such as UPS, Coca-Cola, Chick-Fil-A, Verifone, and AT&T, where he deployed creative and engineering solutions. Cono also founded and built an app called Gitful, where he successfully scaled the company to service hundreds of thousands of users across the globe in less than four years.In this episode, we dive into the arc of their careers, their paths to entrepreneurship, and how they joined forces to create Bean. We explore their original insights, the questions they asked, and their vision for the future of accounting. We unpack their approach to building in stealth mode and the advantages and disadvantages of it. We also discuss the history and current state of accounting, the implications of AI in accounting, and how Bean will bring about the future of accounting in the digital age!

Leading With Empathy & Allyship
What are the strategies for managing cultural change? How can we measure the impact? And what are the emerging trends that may have an influence? In EP121, Toby Mildon, Founder & Director of Mildon, joins Melinda in an action-oriented discussion on creating organizational culture change. They explore various change management models and strategic frameworks leaders can implement to drive DEI initiatives and measure their impact across teams. They tackle the importance of DEI practitioners taking a human-centered approach to problem-solving and using data to identify and address significant issues in the workplace. They also share insights on emerging DEI trends and the future of diversity, equity, and inclusion in business.About Toby Mildon (he/him)Toby Mildon, a leading expert in diversity and inclusion with a proven track record of success in helping some of the UK's largest companies - including the BBC, Deloitte, Sony, and HarperCollins Publishing - improve staff retention, brand innovation, productivity, and performance.Toby's lifelong passion for D&I stems from his personal and professional experiences with inequality, and his belief that building a culture of inclusive growth is essential for organizational success. He created the Inclusive Growth Culture Program to help businesses like yours implement real change and avoid superficial diversity initiatives. If your company has more than 250 employees (or is expecting to grow to this size), Toby is the right person to help you drive your business forward and achieve new heights.Moving beyond superficial diversity initiatives and building a culture of inclusive growth is essential because it addresses the underlying issues of inequality and creates a sustainable framework for continued growth and success. Companies that focus on this approach see better results, both in terms of revenue growth and employee engagement.Diverse and inclusive workforces contribute to brand innovation and productivity because they bring together different perspectives and experiences, which can lead to more creative solutions and better decision-making. Looking to the future, Toby sees D&I becoming increasingly important for business competitiveness. He encourages companies to prepare themselves for these developments by prioritizing D&I and making it an integral part of their organizational strategy. By doing so, companies can become leaders in their industry and attract and retain top talent.For more about Empovia, visit https://ally.cc.

Leadership Biz Cafe with Tanveer Naseer
If you were to ask a random group of leaders if they'd heard of executive presence, almost all of them would answer yes. But if you asked that same group of leaders how many could clearly describe what executive presence is, few if any would answer this question in the affirmative. But if executive presence is key to leadership development and success, why are so few of us capable of explaining it? And if we can't explain it, how can we develop it? Those are questions I explore with my guest, Joel Garfinkle, in this episode of my “Leadership Biz Cafe” podcast. Joel is the author of 11 books and over 300 articles on leadership. He's been recognized by Global Gurus as one of the Top 30 global coaching experts, and his executive coaching clients include Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle, Deloitte, Ritz-Carlton, Genetech, NBC, and the NBA. Joel was one of the first guests I spoke to when I started my podcast over a decade ago, which is why I'm delighted to speak with him again, this time about his latest book, “Executive Presence: Step Into Your Power, Convey Confidence, & Lead With Conviction”. It's a revealing conversation with some practical insights on how every leader – regardless of their gender or race – can develop and strengthen their executive presence and with it, become a better leader in their organization. https://open.spotify.com/episode/35QXOSIRIqwxM3nMZm4CqC?si=ca70672414924e00 Noteworthy links: Buy Joel's book “Executive Presence” on Amazon*.

In 2018, a Supreme Court ruling in the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair opened the door for states to implement a sales tax on remote sellers based on the sales amount even if the seller is not physically present in the state. Many companies with multistate sales are only now learning about their tax obligations under new state laws that have been enacted since the Supreme Court ruling. To avoid penalties and additional tax liability, companies with multistate sales must understand their exposure to economic nexus through remote sales and take steps to comply with their reporting and tax obligations.Generally, there are three main categories for sales taxation: the basic, physical nexus, the affiliate nexus, and the click-through nexus. How can businesses be prepared and proactive on their sales taxation and remain aware of ways to save money in this new environment?On today's episode of On the Shop Floor, a Weaver podcast, hosts Colby Horn, Partner, Assurance Services and Jody Allred, Partner-in-Charge are joined by Blake Fuqua, Partner, State and Local Tax Services, to talk about sales tax law changes since 2018 and how these changes will impact businesses. Horn, Allred, and Fuqua covered these topics:1. Key issues in sales tax requirements and changes since 20182. Digital sales tax rules for e-commerce 3. Savings opportunities for manufacturing businesses Fuqua stated, “Organizations need to be proactive rather than reactive and waiting until they get audited. A lot of the time, that's when I get called in and it's an uphill battle at that point if we don't have the certificates or you haven't been filing, it puts companies in a tough spot.”Blake Fuqua has nearly 15 years of indirect tax experience and sales tax consulting in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, energy, retail, and construction. Prior to joining Weaver, Fuqua served as Manager of Multistate Tax Services, Sales and Use Tax at Deloitte, Sales Tax Analyst at 7-Eleven, and Sales and Use Tax Consultant at Ryan.

Are you a founder or business owner who's looking to scale your vision, develop high-level leadership skills, or transition from startup to corporate? Then you'll want to tune in to this lively discussion with our special guest, Seneca Smith, Senior Manager in the Human Capital Practice at Deloitte Consulting. In her work at Deloitte, Seneca advises businesses on how to approach global transformation, specifically focusing on defining the future of work, designing adaptable organizations, and preparing leadership and the workforce for change. In this episode of Off the Wall, hosts David Armstrong and Jessica Gibbs talk to Seneca about her experience working with leaders to scale their businesses, vision, and leadership skills. She provides key insights such as why all founders should hire a leadership coach, how to align your business and workforce strategies, and what to do if you're stuck in the ‘Norming' stage of business growth. Plus, Seneca shares tips and advice on how you can better delegate responsibilities, so you're not stuck wearing all the hats as a founder. "One of the challenges of getting stuck at ‘norming' is you are now in a place that is comfortable: You are hitting your targets and doing work in a way that feels operationally efficient—but that doesn't necessarily mean that you're achieving innovative goals. You're not getting to that next stage of performing and really stretching. One of the reasons might be for that fear that you would fall back into ‘storming' phase because performing includes an element of risk.” - Seneca Smith Please see important podcast disclosure information at https://monumentwealthmanagement.com/disclosures.

במהלך השנים האחרונות, הרבה מאד ארגונים הבינו, שכדי להצליח בעולם העסקים, הם צריכים להרחיב את הפריזמה ולהתמקד גם בערכים חשובים כמו גיוון והכללה, שמירה על הסביבה ויצירת פרקטיקות עבודה הוגנות. וגם – עידוד ובניית אמון מול הלקוחות שלהם. לא מפתיע, אפוא, לראות יותר ויותר חברות גדולות שמגדירות לעצמן ייעוד ומנסות להגשים אותו בעשייתן השוטפת. ויש להן אינטרס – חברות כאלו גם נוטות להצליח עסקית. כינסנו את אירנה בן-יקר, CPO, ומנהלת תחום ה ESG בDeloitte ורותם דולב, ראש תחום הייעוץ במגזר הטכנולוגיה ב Deloitte, לשיחה שמסבירה מדוע ESG הפך ל ABC הארגוני.

I have 30+ years of experience as a catalyst for leaders who want to grow in self-awareness, harness their innate talents, and enhance their performance to create a meaningful impact in their life and work. I especially enjoy working with multi-generational leaders because we need great leaders in every generation converging to make a difference. My introduction to professional coaching came at the height of my career leading a nonprofit for 20+ years. I realized I had plateaued personally and professionally in the midst of the demands and pressure of work. This realization was a game-changer that propelled me to grow and develop. Completing a Masters in Leadership and a Professional Coaching Certification (PCC) from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) fueled the convergence of my passion, purpose, and talents to become a professional coach. My clients are CEOs, VP's, Directors, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, and business owners from a variety of industries and organizations including Deloitte, Transloc (Ford), Johnson and Johnson Eye Care, and municipalities like the Town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

In Chapter 5 of the Corporate Explorer, Binns, Tushman, and O'Reilly share how a Corporate Explorer created a new business inside the consulting and accounting firm Deloitte. His new unit, Deloitte Pixel, uses the “wisdom of crowds” to solve complex management problems. His first experience of the power of crowds came when he was part of a self-organised community that came together to provide relief for victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. This taught him that communities of people could self-organise and do work that traditional organisation structures might struggle to perform. He then started to apply similar principles of crowds to management consulting. It is a pleasure to welcome that very Corporate Explorer, joined by his friend Andrew Binns.

Whether you are a senior or mid-level leader who lacks hands-on experience with AI, or an AI practitioner who lacks leadership experience, Frank and Chris unpack the dynamics between AI programs, projects, people, and technology. Research Questions: Chris Whitlock suggests a question related to Large Language Models (LLM); how will LLMs perform with contemporary data feeds, novel, emergent topics? For example: intelligence summarizations? Frank Strickland believes that simulation technologies are ascendant and should be studied more.

In 2019, Moderna reported revenues of sixty million dollars. By 2022 it was number 195 on the Fortune 500 with over $18 billion in revenue. This meteoric rise was due to Moderna's development of one of the major COVID-19 vaccines. Now, thankfully, the height of the pandemic has passed and the need for these vaccines is far less urgent. There is something to be said about your marquee product being less useful because people are healthier, but where does Moderna go from here? And how will its CEO Stéphane Bancel help it get there? In this episode of Leadership Next, Bancel talks with hosts Alan Murray and Michal Lev-Ram about the other uses for Moderna's proprietary mRNA platform - including potential vaccines for cancer and H.I.V. Bancel also discusses Moderna's controversial plan to start charging as much as $130 a dose for the COVID-19 vaccine once the U.S. ends the pandemic public health emergency on May 11th.
