Disneyland Paris, now Europe's most popular theme park, initially haemorrhaged money - at an estimated rate of $1 million per day. But, after three years, it finally returned its first profit on 16th November, 1995. This change in the park's fortunes can be attributed to the popularity of two trains: the opening of the Eurostar direct line from London, and the building of the world's most expensive roller coaster, Space Mountain, which launched in Discoveryland on 1st June.In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly unpick how the Disney Corporation consistently underestimated the French inclination for wine with lunch, surly customer service and a unionised workforce; reveal how Spain and Britain had competed for the opportunity to be considered as alternative sites for the park's development; and recall the French antipathy for Americana that led to one critic to label the attraction ‘a cultural Chernobyl'... Further Reading:• ‘INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS; Euro Disney Reports Profit for '95, but the Future Remains Cloudy' (The New York Times, 1995): https://www.nytimes.com/1995/11/16/business/international-business-euro-disney-reports-profit-for-95-but-future-remains.html• ‘Why Was Euro Disney Considered a Failure?'

Supply Chain: Cash or Trash with Seth Page Seth Page and Joe Lynch discuss supply chain: cash or trash. Seth is the COO of TroughPut.ai, an artificial intelligence (AI) supply chain pioneer that enables companies to detect, prioritize and alleviate dynamic operational bottlenecks in real-time. Webinar - Demand Planning in VUCA Times with Ali Raza About Seth Page Seth Page is a senior technology executive, 8x entrepreneur, operator and cross-border deal-making expert who seamlessly bridges the worlds of technology, operations and finance. An expert in equity investments and scaling start-ups to venture-capital backed high-growth companies and into successful exits, divestitures, and IPO trajectories. Deep, hands-on technology roots underpin over two decades of business development, operations and venture activity. Tech pioneer and founder providing deal flow origination for angels, venture capital firms, corporations and family offices in diverse yet interconnected areas including Industrial AI, IOT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, Operations Technology, Enterprise, Telecommunications,  Security & Access Control. He has founded, funded, scaled and exited multiple start-ups for investors, including: ThroughPut.ai; DataRPM (acquired: Progress); UniKey; PV Media Group (acquired: RhythmOne / Blinkx); RayV (acquired: Yahoo); Oyster Optics (acquired: Techquity); AdOnNetwork (acquired: PVMG); Trade.com (acquired: ABM AMRO); as well as deals including Xoom.com (IPO & acquired: NBC); LendingTree (IPO & acquired: IAC); Fetchback (acquired: eBay / GSI); Samsung (acquired: mSpot); xanox (joint acquisition by Axel Springer and PubliGroupe); Litronic (acquired Pulsar & IPO), and many other transactions. Seth earned an Executive MBA with honors in International Business from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, as well as a BS in Economics and a BS in German Linguistics & Literature, both from the University of California, Irvine, as well as a scholarship to study Volkswirtschaft and Germanistik at the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen, Germany.

The founding team is led by seasoned serial entrepreneurs with real-world AI, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Transportation and Operational experience, from the shop-floor to the top-floor, at leading Fortune 500 Industrial Companies & pioneering Enterprise Technology companies. Key Takeaways: Supply Chain: Cash or Trash Seth Page is the COO of ThroughPut.ai, an artificial intelligence (AI) supply chain pioneer that enables companies to detect, prioritize and alleviate dynamic operational bottlenecks in real-time. In the podcast interview, Joe and Seth discuss the enormous waste in supply chains. While supply chains create all the wonderful goods and services we enjoy, they also produce a lot of waste. Approximately one-third of supply chain output is waste – it adds no value for anyone. The waste is horrible for bottom lines and the environment. According to Boston Consulting Group's recent report, 80% of greenhouse gases are created by supply chains so to improve sustainability and profitability, companies must address the waste in the supply chain. The waste occurs because supply chain data is in separate silos and decisions are made to optimize locally – not globally. In other words, each player in the supply chain makes a rational decision based on the information that they have. While that decision might be good for their organization, it might be a bad for the end-to-end supply chain. Supply chain practitioners make decisions using faulty forecasts, old assumptions, and outdated tools. ThroughPut provides an integrated view of company-wide operations by pulling data from all of your disparate systems. Throughput can identify and manage constraints to free cash flow, while meeting revenue targets with output. To make better decisions, supply chain practitioners need demand sensing with real-time intelligence that can be used to create better demand forecasts. With demand sensing, companies can easily predict near-future demand patterns to streamline the flow of materials, processes, output, and free cash flow across your integrated supply chain. Seth and the team at ThroughPut unlock operations agility and efficiency, to meet unpredictable customer demands, while creating uninterrupted flow of materials through supply chain networks. This approach minimizes waste and maximizes profitability.

In a witty, captivating style, Marcy explains the challenges people face, why they face them, and how they can be overcome (and not you).

My father was a part-time real estate agent and owned 5 units in San Diego, CA which I helped to maintain along with tenants, toilets, and trash. My father's parents bought and sold both residential and commercial real estate investments from New York to Cape Cod. I am originally from New England; born in Brunswick, Maine but raised in San Diego, CA since the age of four years. In my early career, I worked for an investment firm that catered to high net worth individuals and it was my responsibility to find, underwrite, negotiate, purchase, acquire debt financing, and create the private placement memorandums for multi-family apartments. Within twelve months, we had acquired over 343 units with a gross purchase value of just under $14,000,000. We raised approximately $3,500,000 in equity. All properties were "valued-add" acquisitions. After I left the investment firm, I worked as a senior financial analyst for the CFO for over 3 years at a commercial real estate development company where we built and managed multi-use projects (office, hotel, restaurant, sporting club) valued at over $500 million. Real estate investment expertise includes investment identification, underwriting analyses, negotiations, acquisitions, development, capital acquisition and funding for both debt and equity, asset management, and valuations up to $300 Million. Expertise and specialties include CFO/COO/CEO, operational/strategic management and consulting; private equity/capital; business/strategic plans; business and commercial real estate DCF valuations; business formation and restructuring; and financial analysis/forensics. 10 years ago, my wife and I flipped a 3-bedroom condo purchased from a bank out of foreclosure for $50,000. It was a mess!!! We renovated the entire condo for about $20,000: carpet drapes, bathroom, kitchen, paint, lighting, etc. 18 months later we sold it for $150,000. We did all of the work except the kitchen. I have an MBA in Finance and International Business, graduating with Honors, and an undergraduate degree in Business Management and Economics. Our investment group is actively seeking value-add multi-family apartments outside of California for investment syndication. Please refer to our Investment Criteria for specific details for our buying parameters.

We speak to Aayushi Awasthy, a PhD scholar in Energy Economics at the University of East Anglia and Rishikesh Ram Bhandary, Assistant Director of the Global Economic Governance Initiative at the Boston University Global Development Policy Centre. Japan has a new prime minister, Fumio Kishida, and he has new ideas for the country – dubbed socialism by some and even mocked as similar to policies of the Chinese Communist Party. In Canada, a tussle for control over a media empire mirrors that of HBO's hit comedy Succession – we hear from Jesse Brown, host of the Canadaland podcast.

For this week's episode (our longest to date), we get together with the legendary Professor Campbell R. Harvey and take a deep dive into a diverse range of topics that draw on his incredible breadth of knowledge and extensive research. Campbell is the Professor of International Business at Duke University and is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. In 2016 he served as the President of the American Finance Association, and from 2006 to 2012 he occupied the incredibly demanding role of Editor for the Journal of Finance. One of his earliest achievements was identifying the inverted yield curve's ability to predict a recession, a highly regarded metric that is near-ubiquitous in its implementation. For the first half of our conversation, we focus on his research in areas like skewness and emerging economies. We cover specific topics like the factor zoo, why it's problematic, and how Campbell, along with his student Yan Lui, found through their research that approximately half of the published empirical research in finance at the time was, in fact, false. We also unpack his most downloaded paper entitled The Golden Dilemma and get into the intricacies of why gold is an unreliable inflation hedge. For the latter half of our conversation, we hear about Campbell's latest book DeFi and the Future of Finance along with his most recent research. Discover how Campbell first became interested in the topic several years ago and decided to put together a course for his students. We also delve into the rise of decentralized finance (DeFi) and how we can expect it to shape global finance, trading, and the future of the internet. Join us today for this essential episode on everything from the pitfalls of academia, to emerging markets, to Bitcoin, and much more!   Key Points From This Episode:   Introducing this week's guest Professor Campbell Harvey. [00:02:46] How Campbell's research brought him to Chicago's Ph.D. program. [00:03:55] How Campbell identified that an inverted yield curve had preceded the past four recessions and could be a reliable economic predictor. [00:07:03] Hear about Campbell's research on skewness, as opposed to simply mean and variance, which is often the focus of portfolio theory. [00:11:40] Why it's surprising that skewness is still largely disregarded in favor of mean and variance. [00:16:42] Why mean and variance are insufficient for measuring risk when comparing a concentrated portfolio with a more diversified portfolio. [00:20:45] Some of the special considerations that Campbell prioritizes when assessing emerging markets in context and managing an overall portfolio.[00:22:04] Observations on the cost of capital being higher before integration and liberalization. [00:25:11] The implications that Campbell's research on emerging markets has on asset allocation. [00:26:51] Dynamic asset allocation, Campbell's research in emerging markets, and how those lessons can be applied when investing in emerging markets at a time when the cost of capital is high. [00:30:04] The factor zoo, why it's problematic, and how it is caused by data mining. [00:32:26] How Campbell and his student Yan Lui estimated that half of the published empirical research in finance was false and how this has occurred in other industries due to data mining. [00:33:02] How economic incentives from the investment industry inform research. [00:39:38] The important distinction between academic research and practitioner research, and asset management. [00:44:15] The extent to which asset management research could be considered to be more reliable than academic research. [00:47:23] Some of the mistakes that investors make when they pursue these factor premiums that have been identified [00:49:29] Machine learning and its impact on investment decisions for retail and institutional investors. [00:56:06] Whether the benefits of potential alpha from machine learning will be passed on to investors or remain within a firm as their scale increases. [01:00:22] Campbell's research on traditional active management within the context of a firm's ability to continue delivering alpha in the future, and how that incrementally decreases as their asset base increases. [01:06:23] The arguments in favor of allocating gold to a portfolio, especially at times of higher inflation, and whether it holds up to scrutiny. [01:09:54] How technological changes can affect the real expected return. [01:16:51] Why gold can be a valuable asset in diversifying your portfolio. [01:17:22] How Campbell became interested in DeFi, cryptocurrency, and blockchain technology. [01:19:19] How digitized finance cuts out the inefficiency of having a middle person and fosters inclusion and financial democracy. [01:26:35] Harvey's thoughts on how cryptocurrencies facilitate criminal and fraudulent activity. [01:31:07] How DeFi could disrupt traditional asset management and how to prepare for those changes. [01:36:43] How to invest in DeFi even though it's decentralized. [01:38:33] How companies can increase their revenue by using cryptocurrencies in their transactions. [01:43:24] Why the current wave of FinTech will be replaced by DeFi. [01:44:58] Why it's important to have a very diverse portfolio when investing in DeFi. [01:51:22] How DeFi will allow people to monetize their content and disrupt the money that Google and Facebook make from their users' data. [01:52:22] Some of the risks of DeFi and investing in cryptocurrencies. [01:55:27] How Campbell defines success: positively impacting the world. [02:00:17]

A myth that my guest, 7-figure business owner and CFO Andrea Jenson, once believed... …that is until she launched her own business and quickly realized that making money is actually very easy as long as we are tracking the data, providing value and ultimately serving our clients at the highest level. Track, provide and serve …when we have everything in the right order, achieving our quantum expansion can happen at quantum speed.  Get your journal, a cup of your favorite beverage and your best pen to take some notes--I guarantee you are going to have a list of takeaways from this interview!

Their outdated business models are failing to support the 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States who employ nearly 9 million people and generate $1.7 trillion in sales.  That's why I created The Cash Flow CFO.  Hi, I'm Andrea Jenson. I help female business owners just like you create financial freedom so you can enjoy living your best life now (and you can kiss the hassle and headaches of yesterday's accounting and CFO services, goodbye.) If you're like most of the business owners I work with, you need accounting & CFO solutions that are modern, empowering, convenient and profit centered. You need data-driven insights to make smart decisions. And sometimes, you simply need a financial expert that will patiently guide you through the process of strengthening your financial literacy.  That's what our team does best.  I've had an affinity for numbers from an early age.  After earning a Bachelor's Degree in International Business, with a concentration in accounting, I immediately began working for a venture capital firm. There I was, surrounded by highly profitable entrepreneurs with big ideas, making even bigger deals.  My next position with Starwood Hotels helped me to hone my skills in exceeding expectations and delighting customers—anticipating the needs of our guests well before they were even requested.  It's these experiences—and the insights passed down to me as a fourth-generation   entrepreneur—that inspired and framed what I do today. My goal is simple: to empower women like you to confidently OWN their finances and their future. At The Cash Flow CFO we teach scaling business owners how to make smart financial decisions based on data so they can put more of their hard-earned profits into their pocket.

Paula co-founded a public benefit corporation, Skiilify, to help foster cultural understanding, and she holds a Ph.D. from Penn State University in Organizational Psychology.   LEADERSHIP INSIGHTS A multicultural environment is any environment that is demographically different (not just ethnic/national). Getting in an extreme cultural situation does more harm than good for cultural agility. Americans tend to smile a lot. This can look a little strange or un-credible. Be aware of the level of formality if you are working with people from another culture/demographic. In some cultures, silence means you are engaged. Sometimes it means you are disengaged. Push against the desire to seek the familiar and find someone who is demographically diverse.    QUESTIONS TO INSPIRE US TO ACTION What is some lesson, saying, or experience that continues to influence your leadership to this day? Having to get a job to make it during a study-abroad experience in Europe. Use three descriptors to finish this sentence: “A leader is…” Courageous, authentic, transparent. What is a question that leaders should be asking either themselves or others? How much time am I really spending understanding the environment I'm in and the people I'm with? What book would you recommend to leaders? Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman If you could get every listener to start doing something THIS week to help them be a better leader, what would it be? Ask two more questions in any situation you're in (no matter your natural level of curiosity). As a general life principle, is it better to ask “why?” or “why not?” “Why not?” because we can offer vision and hope and make a change whatever corner of the world we're in.   CONNECT WITH PAULA LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/paulacaligiuri/ (@paulacaligiuri) Website: https://mygiide.com/ (https://mygiide.com/)   CONNECT WITH JOSH LinkedIn: https://linkedin.com/in/joshuafriedeman (@joshuafriedeman) Instagram: https://instagram.com/joshuafriedeman (@joshuafriedeman) Email: josh@friedemanleadership.com   Want a FREE list of weekly action steps to improve your leadership?

KJ Eichstaedt KJ is the Co-Founder of Ike Media, the international sports brand started in Wisconsin and is now found in 90 plus countries across the world. He's a designer, dealmaker, consultant, podcast host, video producer, and graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with degrees in International Business and Marketing. Words that describe KJ are optimist, bold, creative, and driven. KJ currently lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he helps athletes, businesses, and individuals grow their brand. Could you tell me about the origin of IKE and what you do?  IKE is an international brand that helps individuals, athletes, and businesses position and grows their brands through creative media vehicles and podcasting. We have an international reach, but we have local roots. On Twitter, there are a lot of people who follow IKE specifically for the IKE Packers podcast, or IKE badgers podcast, or our Brewers and Bucks podcasts which allows us to have a very strong local footprint because that's what we're all about. Home and family are some of our biggest values, but also having international backgrounds we work with anyone throughout the world. We enjoy being creative, we model and position all of our work after some of the highest brands in the world. We love helping anyone grow, helping them grow their business, helping them grow their brand, helping them bring their dream to life. They say the best companies have a story and we like to think of ourselves as the pen and paper to help them write that story. Why do you think people in companies need that strong brand? Frankly, people are starting to see through the BS. They're seeing that these companies aren't as sincere as they portray themselves as, and they aren't sure if these big Fortune 500 companies really care about them. People are getting smarter, they're getting smarter with their emotional intelligence, they're getting smarter with their actual intelligence and I think people in today's world which is so run with media and technology, crave a genuine connection which is why we're seeing a lot of local brands, regional media networks really rising up. The big fortune 500 companies really having to do a lot of whether it's donations, whether it's PR, they have to kind of prove to the world that they are actually good for the world. It just allows people to connect with the little guy, the local person down the street, the woman with the flower shop, the athlete who is going to Wisconsin who wants to take his dreams to the NFL. Everyone has a story and it's really hard to stand out in this digital landscape without one because there's just so much media. People have no shortage of it and the story is one of those things that cuts through the noise. It's really something you have to have and if you don't have one, you're behind the game. What would you recommend are some of the best ways to build a brand in 2021? At IKE we take an approach that's all about deeper connection. What I mean by that is, there are certain crazes going around, whether it's tik tok or Instagram. An overall trend is that video keeps getting shorter and shorter and shorter and shorter. We love data as a society, companies love data because it tells a story. What we try and cut through the noise of is that maybe you get a million views on a tik tok video, but maybe someone only watches it for seven seconds. How many of those people can you actually make a genuine connection and in seven seconds? How many of them are just going to scroll past and go and laugh at the next thing? We take the approach where in a world where long-form content seems to be getting pushed more and more to the back burner, we don't even care. We'd rather make 10 deep, meaningful connections with people we can help, form a relationship with, help them grow their dreams, help them follow their dreams, help them grow their business, their finances, whatever it might be, help them get in touch with a certain individual who they thought there's no way they would ever be able to get in a conversation with. We produce results and it really starts with that long-form approach in actually getting a connection. So if someone even has 100 listens on a podcast episode, for example, those people are essentially spending 30 minutes in the room with you. If you spend 30 minutes in a room with someone, you can really connect with them and then you might have a relationship, you might have something that can benefit you both whether it's, a mutual friend, or maybe it's something like a business deal. It could be all of those things, but we take a quality over quantity approach and we're really not afraid to show it because we've worked with some of the most incredible athletes in the world, frankly, and that helps us gain credibility. Can you share one of your most successful or favorite networking experiences that you've had? Growing up, I would wake up in the mornings on Saturdays and I remember as a family we would watch the Badger game. Sometimes we would even be able to go to the Badger football game in Madison. They were 11 o'clock games and you would have to get up super early and get on the road. At that age, I probably wasn't very enthusiastic about it, but I would go to these games and it had an impact on me early on, whether I realized it or not. It all started with one connection. We met someone, we formed a genuine connection and he happened to be a player on the team. Instead of making relationships transactional, Brian Anderson emphasizes making relationships, not transactional. You can't approach relationships transactionally because it'll just never work. But basically, we ended up meeting this one guy and he ended up being the first athlete guest to come on our show. We've since turned it into dozens and dozens of athletes by producing high-quality content, providing value, leveraging opportunities of a brand, leveraging connections and now we work with athletes all across the board and are able to tell their stories on our podcasts, which help us gain credibility in the eyes of people in business, you know, people with their own companies, people with their own practices, such as the real estate market. We've actually had clients of ours have the Top Producing real estate agents, and also the Top Producing real estate team, that leader on his podcast. So it doesn't really matter what field it's in, if you apply the appropriate tactics, if you lead with value, if you do a good job, if you form a genuine connection if you actually try and help people and show them what they can gain the sky's the limit. If I were to go back when I was a kid and tell myself, "Hey, you'd be talking to these guys pretty frequently," I would have said, "No way you're lying!" It's really opened my eyes to just the possibilities of it all. Networking can change someone's life, whether it's a job or something else. You might apply to 100 jobs, but you might have a phone call with someone you know and that might be the door opening that actually leads you to an opportunity that is worthwhile, and you follow up on. We've seen podcasts turn into this vehicle that allows people to both benefit while also connect. It's just been this unbelievable experience and cultivated in front of our own eyes, whether it's the IKE Podcast Network, or whether it's even podcasting in general. Over 200 million Americans are familiar with podcasting and over half of Americans have listened to a podcast increasing exponentially each year. Really, the key is starting. It doesn't matter if you have 10 people listen. If you have 10 people in your podcast, that's still like you doing 10 meetings a day and that's pretty impressive. But once you start to work at it, and you get up to 100 listeners, you get up to 1000 listeners, that's when the benefits are really unbelievable. It's almost like you don't know what the possibilities are until you jump into the arena. I encourage everyone if they're a little worried about if it will actually work, if you stick with it it's going to create a lot of positive opportunities. What advice would you offer that business professional who's really looking to grow their network? I think you have to be willing to do it. Podcasting is one of these ways to do it that applies to today's world, in regards to someone looking to grow their network. A lot of the people, whether it's a kid, whether it's a CEO, are afraid to put their image out there. They see what goes on online, they know they have to network online, they know if they just network in person they might be missing out on valuable opportunities. But really, for better, for worse, most likely for worse, online isn't always the nicest place to be. There might be cyberbullying there might be whatever going on. I find that a lot of business leaders, a lot of professionals, love podcasting as this opportunity because they don't necessarily have to put their face out there. They can still give themselves to an audience in a deep, long-form, meaningful way, without having to be in the camera. Some CEOs are like, "Hey, I'm a great business person, but I'm not an actor, I'm not a movie star," well, they love podcasting because it allows them to thrive in that role. I think was LeBron James who said, "Be a star in your role," and some people are meant to be stars in podcasts, some people are meant to be on TV, some people are meant to be on the radio, some people are meant to, and people are meant to connect online in person. This is one of those ways that really allows people to touch on all those points. If you could go back to your 20-year-old self, what would you tell yourself to do more or less than or differently with regards to your professional career? I think you can always tell yourself to be patient. I think you can always tell yourself that you're going to maybe have to reinvent a few things. IKE originally started off as a sports website. I was seeing all the fake news being spewed by ESPN, I was seeing how they were covering the Oscar Pistorius trial and it wasn't really about the sports. So I saw an opportunity to cover this in a blog format, more like an article format to be accurate. We made this beautiful website we modeled after Apple and Tesla and ended up being called IKEsportreport and we put all these beautiful articles on the site in various categories, but we didn't really have an audience yet to read these articles. So from there, we had to reinvent in a sense, and we started working at building a following. We found that sportspeople who love what we're offering existed a lot on Twitter. What that meant was a reinvention of what the original concept of IKE was. What ended up happening from there is these Twitter accounts gained a lot of popularity, but even then, we didn't want to just be a popular Twitter account, we had to be more so we evolved into podcasts. If I were to go back and tell myself anything, I think I would preach patience. I think I would preach being open to adapting and evolving. I think I would tell myself that it's going to work out and you're not going to regret this when you're 90. As I go back to that story about watching the Badgers going up and now talking to them, and potentially unveiling something special with some of them, potentially, in the future, it's all just like, pinch me moments, and I definitely don't consider myself someone who has made it by any means. I've got a long way to go, but I don't think I'm going to regret that I didn't try and follow my passion when I'm older.  I understand you have an offer for our listeners today? We have some really cool things we're doing in the podcast world. We're actually going into this phase in our business where we're able to take on more clients. No matter what size your business is, whether you want a basic package, we're actually offering some specials right now, where if you want to pay in bulk, we offer some pretty hefty discounts, to say the least. I think one thing that's also becoming more and more relevant in today's world is a subject matter expert's time, right? So it's not even just the act of getting a podcast or getting a brand, it's the act of you know, really working with people who have cultivated brands and are doing it at a level that makes them proud and something that you can truly own and be proud to show off because that sometimes doesn't show up in the value proposition. I love working with people from all different backgrounds and I'm excited to keep work with some new people. You need a story to connect with someone, you need a story to grow your business, you just a story to sell products or just a story to meet people. I would encourage everybody just to start. We've been doing podcasts for a long time and we have cultivated some great audiences, we've charted top 40 multiple times, we've been listened to in over 90 different countries, we've had professional athletes, collegiate athletes, CEOs, entrepreneurs, you name it, and we'd love to help anyone listening today who might be saying, "Hey, maybe video isn't my bread and butter, but I do have an incredible story and I'm ready to tell that story in a certain way. I'm ready to work with someone to do that." I'd love to help.   Connect with KJ   Website: https://www.ikepodcastnetwork.com/  Email: kjeichstaedt@gmail.com  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kenneth-john-eichstaedt/

The internet allows us to live in a more connected, global community. However it's one thing to read about other cultures and something else entirely to experience it personally...no matter what your age. This week on the podcast I'm chatting with Scott Marshall of Semester at Sea about the life-changing experience of not just studying abroad but also learning about the culture and history of multiple countries and destinations. (And Semester at Sea isn't just for youth; there's a lifelong learner program, too!) Learning about other cultures helps to bridge the gap across oceans and countrysides and helps us to become more empathic. Scott has found that the way his program is structured changes the brain chemistry as it allows participants to test biases and reflect on themselves--before, during, and after travel.  This is such an interesting conversation and I'll bet that you'll be looking up the next Semester at Sea program before you're done listening! About Scott Marshall: In Scott's role as the President and CEO, he is responsible for the overall strategic direction and financial well-being of the Institute for Shipboard Education and the Semester at Sea program.  He works to advance the mission of Semester at Sea and ensure sustainable revenue in partnership with the Senior Leadership Team (Advancement, Academics, Finance & Accounting, Human Resources, Marketing & Communications and Operations & Risk Management), the over 70,000 Semester at Sea alumni and the ISE Board of Trustees.  Scott collaborates closely with Colorado State University, the Academic Partner to Semester at Sea, and stewards strong support for the philanthropic community. Prior to the position of President and CEO, Scott served as Vice President of Academic Affairs at ISE/Semester at Sea and various leadership roles at Portland State University, including Vice Provost for Academic and Fiscal Planning and Interim Dean and Associate Dean of Graduate Programs in the School of Business.  Scott earned his Ph.D. in International Business from the University of Oregon, a Master of International Affairs from George Washington University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Economics from Willamette University.   Jump in the Conversation: [2:08] Importance of study abroad [5:42] Get lost to understand yourself [8:16] Origins of Semester at Sea (SES) and what a semester at sea looks like [10:00] What brought Scott to this program [10:22] This is the optimal design of study abroad [12:47] Success of reluctant participants [14:15] SES learning experiences [17:23] Outcomes of Semester at Sea [20:03] What's next for Semester at Sea [24:19] How Semester at Sea can help different generations [29:23] Turbo Time [36:43] Scott's magic wand [40:36] Maureen's takeaways   Links Semester at Sea Global Perspective Inventory Humanitarian trilogy documentary filmed on SES NY Times article on The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human by Jonathan Gottschall  Abby Ingleman 3D Sea 2009 Sylvia Earl TED Talk Email Maureen Maureen's TEDx: Changing My Mind to Change Our Schools The Education Evolution Facebook: Follow Education Evolution Twitter: Follow Education Evolution LinkedIn: Follow Education Evolution EdActive Collective Maureen's book: Creating Micro-Schools for Colorful Mismatched Kids Micro-school feature on Good Morning America The Micro-School Coalition Facebook: The Micro-School Coalition LEADPrep

 founder and owner of transCODES makes her second appearance on the Outer Limits of Inner Truth. She is a wise metaphysical teacher who is also a student of human psychology. On transCODES' site they say “Changing the way we perceive ourselves is a big part of our Global Awakening process and part of the immanent Paradigm Change ahead. With the growing evidence that who we are is not just a result of predisposed genetic information, gender, race, circumstances and cultural conditioning we are beginning to embrace the idea that we more than just a human-computer-system, limited to hardware and software – our life is much more complex than that!” More about Jona Jona was born in Iceland and grew up in Germany, where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry, Computer Science and later in International Business. She started her professional career as consultant in the emerging computer industry and later became an instructor, coach and motivational speaker. She published articles, co-authored some magazines, had TV appearances, and worked as teacher, public speaker for a Children's nutrition related non-profit organization and founded a holistic tutoring school in 2009. In the constant search for new and more holistic modalities, Jona decided to complement her rather secular education through more spiritual and psychological studies in NLP, Remote Viewing, spiritual healing and Metaphysics. The teachings that influenced her the most are those of Richard Bandler, Stuart Wilde, Lyn Buchanan, Dr. David R. Hawkins, Khris Krepcik and Patricia St.Clair. She is a certified trainer and coach of the SaintClairs International School for Remote Healing and is working on her combined Master's Degree and PhD in Metaphysics through the International University of Metaphysics in Sedona since 2005.
