The pinnacle for me is creating a cohesive (and executable) plan, which every important stakeholder can follow and implement.” Outside of work, Jamie and his wife, Dawn, spend a lot of time in their Jeep off-roading, working around their farm in Ramona, CA and trying to keep up with their 5 (yes, 5!) kids.

Lucinda is joined by Hardeep Rai, the co-founder and CEO of the Kaleidoscope Group, which aims to transform the lives of people of determination by maximising their potential and offering them access to genuine employment opportunities. Hardeep discusses his incredible work across the last seven years, involving meeting with over 1300 people of determination across 65 different different disabilities from 28 countries, and the highly personal story of how his own experiences have led him to see the potential in everyone. KEY TAKEAWAYS Disability is, unfortunately, one of the things in life that we cannot truly feel unless it has impacted our lives in some intimate way. It has to resonate emotionally. Defining disable people has proved troublesome and contentious, even in the modern world. People of determination is the most accepted way of describing them, as it highlights the positive connotation. If you are genuine in your heart with your intentions, then nothing you say can possibly be wrong. It simply displays curiosity. There is a misconception that in order to fund the additional means required to level the playing field for a person of determination, the cost must be met by the employer. but the government has means in place to pay for these costs. BEST MOMENTS 'He inspired me to set up Kaleidoscope' 'How you define disabled people is one of the most controversial topics of the modern time' 'We're all conditioned according to our biases, whether they're conscious or unconscious' About the Guest, Hardeep Rai Hardeep is the Co-Founder and CEO of the Kaleidoscope Group (www.Kaleidoscope.Group). The purpose of the organisation is to help to transform the lives of people of determination, by maximising their potential and then offering them access to genuine employment opportunities or supporting them to become successful entrepreneurs. Over the course of the last 7 year's he has personally met / interacted with over 1,300 people of determination across 65 different disabilities from 28 different countries. He has worked with over 50 people of determination within his own team over the years. This exposure and experience has given him a unique insight into how to help them to maximise their potential from a multitude of different perspectives. On a personal level, Hardeep is the father of a severely disabled child of 15 years old so he understands first hand, how to overcome the alternative challenges that life can sometimes offer. On a professional level, he has had a successful career in Financial Services for over 25 years in London. In his spare time, he is an ‘Expert by Experience' for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is a member of their inspection team when visiting care homes for residents that are people of determination. He is educated to Master's level in International Business law and graduated from the University of London.

Episode 154 Every other Thursday, we give our listeners a glimpse into the inner workings of our business with our new “Inside Buildertrend” series on “The Building Code.” What are our teams working on? What features are coming up, and how will they benefit our users? What data and research are being collected behind the scenes? Tune in as we take a look inside Buildertrend. How is Buildertrend impacting the future of payments in the construction industry? On today's episode of “Inside Buildertrend,” Trevor Pillen, payment operations specialist, is chatting with Zach and Charley about the significance of online payments. Tune in to hear more about how our Financial Services team is working to change the way the construction industry gets paid. Learn more about why the future of getting paid is digital. What are the key takeaways? How is Buildertrend changing the way the industry gets paid?: In the construction industry, checks have historically been the preferred method of payment. So, our goal as a tech company is to show business owners the value of using ACH and credit cards. There are many advantages to accepting these methods of payment – and one of them is timeliness. Time is money in construction, and getting paid via check takes a lot longer. What are some key benefits of online payments?: One of the biggest benefits of online payments is time. The average turnaround time for a check is 20 to 25 days. Whereas with digital payments like ACH and credit card, it's closer to 10 to 12 days, if not less. Another benefit is the ability to streamline getting paid by accepting online payments quicker, which will help solve cash flow issues. Why is accepting online payments better for business?: Today, many construction professionals are limiting the way homeowners pay for their projects. By widening the funnel, clients can pay the way they want, and contractors get a wider range of jobs to choose from. Offering flexible payment options is a good business practice, and there really are no downfalls. Why is this cool for Buildertrend users? Buildertrend Payment Processing is integrated with the Customer Portal feature, which allows homeowners to make digital payments directly through the platform. Builders have the option to accept ACH and/or credit card payments within their Buildertrend account.

Consumers want their financial providers to provide integrated experiences that leverage insights to create intuitive engagements. To accomplish this, banks and credit unions need to build the data infrastructure and analytics capabilities that can be applied across the entire customer journey. Personalization must become a strategic priority, using data to create a differentiated value exchange with the customer in real-time. I am excited to have Jim Stapleton, Senior Vice President at Epsilon on the Banking Transformed podcast. Jim shares how banks and credit unions can deepen relationships by understanding customer behaviors and offering timely solutions.

Senior officials in the Administration have expressed concern about cryptocurrencies being used for criminal activity and undermining the dollar as the global reserve currency. These concerns have been heightened with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, evasion of sanctions including North Korean sanctions, cyberattacks, and ransomware. Others contend that blockchain transactions are easier to trace than physical cash, and that the Administration’s concerns are exaggerated and could stifle innovation. China has banned cryptocurrencies and developed its own central bank digital currency (CBDC). It appears that the digital yuan will be used by the Chinese government for surveillance purposes to closely monitor personal transactions and behavior. A number of other regimes, including Canada, have used the banking and monetary system to silence dissidents. Some say that dissidents and citizens in countries that have unstable fiat currencies have turned to bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to escape the national currency and protect their rights; other say cryptocurrencies are used by criminals and terrorists. This very timely panel will discuss whether the US can develop policies on digital assets that both protect freedom and privacy and maintain our safety from bad actors, and what the trade-offs with the dollar’s international role might be.

Stop wasting your energy on barking orders and telling people what to do. It's far more effective and satisfying to lead by example. It's one of the greatest leadership hacks of all time because people respond better to what they see, not what they're told.

Eric started his career on Wall Street where he led a global team of security professionals that implemented a 24/7 Security Operations Center to monitor threats and respond to attacks at Lehman Brothers. Eric then moved on to Freddie Mac where he built and led multiple teams in different security disciplines such as Identity & Access Management, Governance, Risk and Compliance and Security Monitoring & Incident Response. Eric's attributes include strong leadership and communication skills with the ability to translate technical and risk based solutions to senior management as well as business partners. He also has a demonstrated track record of delivering innovative Security solutions that meet corporate strategic goals while promoting a team-oriented work environment. Eric has partnered with peers in other organizations to start a CISO roundtable with security leaders from the Virginia, Maryland and DC area. He is also a 9 year contributing member of the CISO Executive Network. He holds the CISSP, CISA and CISM certifications and is a member of ISACA National DC chapter and ISC2.

Why leaders must become PROACTIVE when it comes to employee retention. The reality of the staffing shortages in the Cyber Security industry. Why leading by example is so effective.
