Debbi Mack interviews crime writer Iain Parke. This is the Crime Cafe, your podcasting source of great crime, suspense and thriller writing. I'm your host Debbi Mack. Before I bring on my guest, I'll just remind you that the Crime Cafe has two eBooks for sale: the nine book box set and the short story anthology. You can find the buy inks for both on my website, debbimack.com under the Crime Cafe link. You can also get a free copy of either book if you become a Patreon supporter. You'll get that and much more if you support the podcast on Patreon, along with our eternal gratitude for doing so. Check us out on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crimecafe Debbi (00:54): But first, let me put in a good word for Blubrry podcasting. I'm a Blubrry affiliate, but that's not the only reason I'm telling you this. I've been using Blubrry Podcasting as my hosting service for my podcast for years and it's one of the best decisions I ever made. They give great customer service, you're in complete control of your own podcast, you can run it from your own website, and it just takes a lot of the work out of podcasting for me. I find for that reason that it's a company that I can get behind 100% and say, “You should try this.” Try Blubrry. It doesn't require a long-term contract, and it's just a great company, period. It also has free technical support by email, video, and phone, so you can get a human being there. Isn't that nice? If you want to podcast, try out Blubrry. No long-term contract, excellent distribution, and great technical support, too, by email, video, and on the phone. I've included an affiliate link on this blog. Here's a link to a PDF copy of the interview. Debbi: Hi, everyone. Before I introduce my guest, I'll just mention that my latest novel, Fatal Connections is out now. It's the second Erica Jensen mystery. And since Erica is a female marine veteran, Veterans Day seemed like a good day to have it released. So, if you like hard-boiled mystery, please check it out. Yes, it's at all the usual retailers, so do check it out, including Amazon, of course. But with me today is a guy who writes about motorcycle clubs, or as it's described on his website, Biker Noir. I like that description. You should totally check out his writing sample on his website. It's really awesome. And with me today then is Iain Parke. Hi, Iain. How are you doing? Iain Parke: Hi, very well. Thank you. Greetings from across the pond on a fairly grotty November night. Debbi: It's kind of grotty around here. It's not nice, but it's been raining. Actually, it was kind of nice. It's cleared up and well, we kind of went from rain to cleared up. So, it was not so bad, really when it comes down to it. [crosstalk] Iain: Yeah, you can tell you're talking to someone from England because we're on to the weather already. I mean that's all we talk about. Debbi: That's all we talk about in Maryland too, that's interesting. Very, very interesting. I got to tell you though, I noticed you have an MBA and an interesting background, insolvency and business restructuring. So, the fact that you kind of drew on that experience to write a conspiracy thriller as a novel seem to suggest something dire. Iain: Yeah. I did an MBA and was interested in running businesses, and set out effectively to have a career in running businesses and doing just things in this sort of distressed business space. And I won't bore you with the career history, but essentially at one point I ended up, I wanted to get a secondment. I was working for PwC, one of the big firms at the time and I wanted to secondment to Canada and I ended up in Tanzania, which just proves my geography is fairly lousy. So, from going to the west coast of Canada to going to East Africa, I ended up sort of running a match factory with about a thousand employees, including 300 ladies putting matches into boxes by hand on the slopes of Kilimanjaro for a year.

Byron Carlock, the U.S. real estate practice leader with PwC, joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss the results from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Emerging Trends Report. Carlock joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the All About Real Estate segment. Celebrating 10 years with PwC, Carlock joined the company directly from industry after working for Trammell Crow Company. His previous experience includes serving as Chief Investment Officer with Post Properties and running a series of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) funds. He attended Harding University for his undergraduate program and Yale and Harvard for graduate school. In its 43rd year, PwC partners with ULI to capture the sentiment of industry leaders each fall. The company recently released the ULI Emerging Trend Report to prepare businesses for the coming year. The results from the 2022 ULI Emerging Trends Report reveal an optimistic outlook for the coming year while the industry is in an environment with plenty of equity and demand for most product types. Carlock said, “[ULI] is a great organization for collaborating with developers and friends of the industry.” Contractors, leaders, architects, title companies and lenders gather twice a year and sit on regional and product committees to share ideas to improve cities and neighborhoods throughout the industry. This year's ULI fall conference heavily focused on diversity, inclusion, recruitment and retention to ensure ongoing career progress for industry participants. “We've made great progress in the public real estate companies,” said Carlock. “We still have a lot to do in the construction industry in retaining talent in the leasing and management industries and bringing up a generation of developers that's more diverse.” The report proved the industry is aware of the need for diversity which is a high priority in the talent management strategies of the survey's respondents. More diversification in the industry will shift the focus to the redevelopment of areas that are victims of food, retail and healthcare deserts due to racially biased city planning in the mid-20th century. “We are going to bury those interstates…and try to create a unity where there was division,” said Carlock. “Real estate can be a tool for that.” At the beginning of the pandemic, the real estate industry was healthy. As the crisis continues, the industry is experiencing high demand and a supply-demand imbalance as well as a vision for the development and redevelopment of cities. A large portion of the product available on the market lost its relevance after several industry shifts. There is a need for modern construction standards and more collaborative and team-centered technology for office spaces. As far as environmental considerations, the real estate industry is behind. Many companies are moving towards carbon neutrality, rethinking the ways materials are developed and a space's environmental experience. On the user side, lead certification tremendously affects new tenant consideration. Many prospective buyers and renters do not consider spaces without a high lead certification or a high WELL health-safety rating. Investors are also becoming more discriminant about the buildings in which they invest equity dollars to ensure they finance developments with long-lasting environmental considerations. This information is essential for companies that report their carbon footprint. Along with a demand for space, there is a great need for investment products. REITs offer an opportunity for a dividend-yielding investment with a longstanding relevance in its community. The compatibility in the real estate sector transcends over to non-residential properties such as data centers, life science centers, student housing, self and cold storage. Those boxes transition into investment products that yield a dividend through rental income and are reasonably secure investments backed b...

If you've ever wondered what's involved in running an international recruiting firm and placing people all over the world, here's your chance to find out. You'll enjoy listening to my interview with Abigail Stevens, founder of Think Global Recruitment, who has 25 years of experience assisting accounting and finance professionals to not only change jobs, but to relocate from one country to another. I've known and admired Abigail for almost 20 years -- she was one of my very first clients when I started my recruitment training business back in 2001. As you'll hear, Abigail has been hugely successful, both as a top biller and as a business owner. But what was special about this interview is that Abigail talked not only about the high points, but the lows as well.  Having survived four downturns / recessions, she's had some heart breaking moments. You'll benefit from knowing what she's learned along the way, and how these experiences have shaped her current strategy for growth. Episode Outline and Highlights [2:02] How Abigail kicked off her recruitment career: her journey from starting her own business at a very young age. [11:01] Abigail reveals her turning points that led her to where she is today. [14:00] Pioneering an approach to attracting and placing top talent via international recruitment conferences. [21:18] Taking the company through four downturns/recessions. [24:42] Abigail revealed things she would have done differently to retain key people during the recession. [25:47] Pearls of wisdom on talent retention. [27:30] Weathering the storm during the pandemic. [30:00] Thought process in expanding during the pandemic. [32:48] Think Global Recruitment's new business model. [40:43] Best practice in the internal hiring process. [47:00] What's next for Think Global Recruitment? Think Global's Wildly Successful Candidate Generation Strategy  Abigail shared her fascinating journey including how she started her first business very young, then went travelling around the world, before falling into recruitment and eventually setting up Think Global Recruitment at the age of 28.  You will enjoy listening to her best learning moments - as well as some of the innovative recruitment strategies she pioneered.  An example is how they used international recruitment conferences in the UK, South Africa, and Australia to attract top talent for consulting firms such as PwC, Deloitte, EY, KPMG, BDO, Grant Thornton.  Pearls of Wisdom on Talent Retention The other part of our conversation is how Abigail was able to take her company through four economic recessions, including the current pandemic situation. The resilience and planning enabled her firm to withstand the difficulties. Of course, there are things that she would have done differently, which she humbly shared for the benefit of other business owners. One main takeaway was on retaining top recruiters. Abigail shared: Staff need to feel successful   Ongoing training and development opportunities are critical Don't dwell on what worked it the past - move with the times! Hear how Abigail elaborated on the above takeaways in our conversation. Growing During the Pandemic In the middle of the pandemic, Think Global Recruitment decided to expand. What makes successful companies such as Think Global thrive during this difficult time? Abigail explained, “Our thought process was, we know from the previous recessions that we've been through, that after recession usually there is a shortage of people,” she explained. “So we knew that there is going to be a high demand for our candidates at the end of all of this.”  Indeed, being a step ahead and maintaining a growth mindset is definitely a differentiator in success.

70: Work Anywhere Policies Shaking Up the Tax Profession & Attracting New Talent

Big Four accounting firm PwC made waves earlier this year when it introduced a “work anywhere” policy for its 55,000 US employees, allowing them to choose an all-virtual work option. The policy is intended to help PwC attract new talent and retain top talent in a competitive market.  The tax profession isn't always leading the charge when it comes to workforce changes, but some big firms, like PwC, are adopting new flexible “work anywhere” policies to attract and retain top talent. On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly welcomes back Kathryn Kaminsky to discuss more about expectations of today's competitive workforce, and what the implications of a “work anywhere” policy can mean for businesses. Kathryn is Vice Chair and Trust Solutions Co-Leader at PwC. In this role, she leads the combined Tax and Assurance business. Kathryn is responsible for the quality of service, excellence in the work performed by partners and staff, developing diverse teams, and driving innovation. Her biggest passion is serving clients. Listen to Kelly and Kathryn talk about work anywhere policies:Many industries are grappling with work anywhere policies in various ways. What does Kathryn believe led to PwC's policy, and what does she think about it overall? Kathryn says it's important for businesses to remain agile and adaptive in a changing business environment, and doing so affects both a company's staff and clients.  Kathryn unpacks the hot issue of the “talent war,” also referenced as “the great resignation” sweeping across the country in the aftermath of the pandemic. She says companies have to prioritize open-mindedness in such a time in order to keep their top talent and attract new talent. Adaptation and innovation will drive a company's hiring right now.  On the client side, has there been a lot of pushback against working with a largely remote firm? Kathryn says it varies with each client, but that each client knows they're at the center of it all, and they know that just because some staff is remote doesn't mean they have less access to their services.  What options did PwC lay out for its staff, and what procedures are in place to audit the effectiveness of the new policy? Kathryn says almost 60% of their staff chose a hybrid option to work remote as well as in the office, and that every six months or so they will be checking in to see how smoothly the policy has been going for everyone.  For a lot of employees, working from home in the fall of 2021 is very different from working from home in the fall of 2020. Kids are back in school, going to soccer practice, in general there weren't as many distractions in 2020 that have now largely returned in 2021. How is PwC looking at flexibility differently now versus during the height of the pandemic?  Did PwC change the layout of their physical offices to accommodate their new work model? Kathryn says they've always had a lot of open space and conference rooms, and now those are some of the most utilized spaces since some employees will be in person and some will be virtual thanks to technology and video chat.  What is the level of enthusiasm overall across the PwC workforce? Kathryn says it's been a great response, and they like having the option to work anywhere. Now, it's PwC's responsibility to make sure their staff has the tools to succeed in this new flexible environment.  Some of PwC's competitors have insinuated that they would resist such a dramatic shift to widespread work flexibility. What does Kathryn think about this difference in philosophy, and how might it affect the talent pool between the large firms?  Is PwC seeing an increase in employees' travel, and how does travel affect their flexibility model? The policies have stayed very consistent, Kathryn says.  Is PwC following up on where their people are working? From a business perspective, there's certainly an advantage to knowing where your employees

From investor to stakeholder expectations, from  global frameworks to data, process, and controls—there's something in it for everyone.This week Heather Horn sat down with Nadja Picard, PwC's Global Reporting Leader, and Andreas Ohl, PwC National office partner, to discuss ESG reporting with a focus on the European Commission's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive or CSRD, and how it may impact companies outside the EU (including US companies that do business in Europe).Topics include:5:04 - What is CSRD? The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive or CSRD was proposed by the European Commission this year and introduces potential big changes for companies with operations in Europe. Heather and Nadja talk through the impact of the directive and why it will impact more than just EU companies.13:27 - What are the requirements? Nadja and Andreas provide insight on the CSRD proposal, including the requirements that certain companies disclose information on the way they operate and manage social and environmental challenges.28:08 - Advice for listeners. Complying with CSRD requirements goes beyond reporting. Companies may have articulated a net zero strategy, but often have not laid out in detail how they plan to get there and what processes they have to track their progress. An early draft of how climate related disclosures may look like under the CSRD requires  transparency on exactly that. Nadja and Andreas give listeners practical advice on how to prepare.42:59 - Blind spots? Nadja and Andreas discuss areas that companies are prone to overlook as they think about their ESG reporting.

“Marketing is just hocus pocus and pixie dust” — does that feel familiar? Most of us are tired of wasting time and money on the latest marketing strategies that never seem to work. Jennifer Zick of Authentic Brand shares why one of her clients said this (and why it’s one of her favorite quotes of all-time) on today’s show. Not only did her company coin the phrase “Random Acts of Marketing,” Authentic Brand provides fractional chief marketing officer (CMO) services that get businesses back on track and making better marketing decisions for the long-term. Jennifer’s mission is to help bring big company marketing resources and planning to the middle market, so tune in to learn a few things about strategy and team alignment to achieve your sales and clientele goals particularly in the B2B space. We go over how to eliminate the random acts of marketing, including all the associated costs, headaches, and — most frustrating of all — lack of progress that comes with them. Authentic Brand’s unique approach combines marketers, methodology, and mindshare to deliver real revenue results for any business owner. What You Will Learn What makes an elite fractional CMO Why the key truths of marketing hasn’t changed with new tools and technology The questions you have to answer when marketing - and why they haven’t changed What random acts of marketing means and why most companies are doing that When to use an agency versus a marketing leader How marketing helps the long term view for all divisions in a business How sales is different from marketing and how they are similar How to identify proof points - how to know if a plan is working when community building How to budget for a community building plan that reaps its rewards years down the road What marketing investment strategies have in common with baseball Why it’s so important for your marketing leaders and resources teams to be focused on the main goals The ways people are pivoting their marketing strategy when the supply chains are all messed up Bio: With nearly twenty years of B2B marketing experience in innovative, entrepreneurial, and accelerated-growth companies, Jennifer brings a wealth of experience to B2B growth organizations. Jennifer’s career has included several leadership roles for high-growth B2B professional services organizations, primarily centered on sales and marketing innovation through digital and SaaS technologies. Prior to launching Authentic Brand, Jennifer led marketing teams and programs for Magnet 360, PwC, and Corporate Visions. Jennifer is Past-President of the Minnesota Chapter of the Business Marketing Association – a national non-profit business association focused on B2B marketing – where she also served a prior term as VP of Events & Development. In 2014, Jennifer was honored by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal as the recipient of their “40 Under 40” award which recognizes young leaders who have been successful in business, while also making significant contributions to their communities. More recently, Jennifer has leveraged her network to create “two or more“- a grassroots community service movement that brings together business professionals from across the Twin Cities to volunteer, serve, and support local charities and social causes. Quotes: 11:13 - “[Our CMOs] know what it takes to be at ground level and build from there, as good stewards of those resources. Right? Because there’s not established brand and market share already that provides this assumed brand air cover.” - Jennifer Zick

PWC recently announced it's allowing its 40,000 client-facing employees to work remotely from anywhere in the US. Joining companies like Facebook and Allstate, more and more employers are shifting to permanently remote models to attract and retain top talent. But what are the tax and legal implications of additional jurisdictions, employee schedule flexibility, and changes to company infrastructure? 91% of job-seeking Americans now expect flexibility to work from home. But what are the long term impacts of a large scale remote workforce, for both the employee and the employer? On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Nishant Mittal to chat about what the widespread work-from-anywhere shift will really mean for employers and employees. Nishant is the SVP and GM of Topia's Business Travel solution responsible for strategy and growth. Nishant joined Topia as part of its acquisition of Monaeo, a tech company he co-founded and led. He is a published author with publications in machine learning and image processing, and leading peer-reviewed journals. He has a BS in Computer Engineering, an MS in Biomedical Engineering, and an MBA from Stanford's Graduate School of Business. Listen to Kelly and Nishant talk about the pros and cons of remote work:Many companies and tax professionals are talking about this buzzy idea of remote work, and how it fits into a long term workforce model. What are some of the details and various models businesses are considering now? Is it fair for companies to be promising permanent remote work benefits, or is it a model that could be dialed back in the future? Nishant discusses the flux in labor and employee movement right now, and how offering remote work has become a strategic issue. What kinds of concerns do employers have about shifting to a more remote workforce? From remote work, to hybrid work, to flexible scheduling, what are the pros and cons to each of the different models companies are considering? There are many gray areas, Nishant explains, especially when it comes to all different models of “hybrid work.” How does jurisdiction play into remote work, and where does tax law come into play? What are the tax reasons that employers may not want to offer fully remote work, meaning allowing their employees to work from anywhere in the world?  The employee perspective: It is not clear that employees understand the impact of what working from a different jurisdiction would mean, particularly from a tax perspective.  The employer perspective: In a post-Wayfair world, doing business across state lines without a brick-and-mortar home base is the new normal. Employees don't always consider how working from another state (or country) may impact the tax liability of their employer.  Home office deduction is currently only claimable by small business owners and independent contractors, not by W-2 employees. If this doesn't change, how might that impact the remote work demand? After payroll, real estate is usually the second largest cost for employers. Nishant suggests we may see employers adjust compensation for remote employees to offset home offices, since they likely won't be paying as much overhead for company office space. Many companies, particularly startups and tech companies, became infamous pre-pandemic for having flashy perks and company culture benefits in their office space. Where does Nishant see those accommodations evolving, and how might company culture take a turn with a primarily remote workforce? In order to accommodate labor laws, will companies have to restrict jurisdiction changes, or even implement systems of employee tracking? Nishant shares some fascinating stats from HR professionals and employees on self-reporting and tracking employee's work footprint. In regards to compliance, how can small and midsize companies plan for these kinds of changes? Nishant shares his plan of attack for strategic, proactive planning when it...

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending October 23rd, 2021... the Fed's new rate hike schedule, a new wave of foreclosures, and a rent growth surprise for some single-family homes.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week with comments from Fed Chief Jerome Powell. It looks like the timeline for interest rate hikes has been pushed up again. Last month, there was more of a debate as to whether it would happen in 2022 or 2023. Powell indicated that conditions for a rate hike would probably be reached next year. That includes the Fed's goal of maximum employment. The inflation requirement has already been met. That's when inflation remains above 2% for a sustained period of time. Powell also said that now is the time to begin tapering the Fed's bond-buying strategy. Policymakers will discuss a tapering plan next month. Jobless claims fell to a fresh pandemic low last week. There were only 290,000 initial claims for state benefits. Continuing claims also fell. They were down 290,000 to 2.48 million. (2) Millions of jobs are going unfilled, however, which is making it difficult for businesses to meet the demand for goods and services. That's also creating supply chain issues that are driving up prices, and inflation.Home buyers are going full steam ahead to lock in deals before mortgage rates rise any higher. The National Association of Realtors say that existing home sales were up 7% from August to September. That's a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 6.29 million homes. (3) Part of that increase is due to more inventory, but NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun says that inventory was quickly gobbled up. On the other side of the housing supply issue, residential construction was down due to those supply chain issues, and a labor shortage. The government says that September home starts were down 1.6% compared to August, and that permits were down 7.7%. Multi-family permits were down the most. They fell 21% while single-family permits were down just 1%. (4) Despite all the headwinds that builders face, the National Association of Home Builders monthly confidence index shows an increase of four points to a reading of 80. Anything over 50 is positive. Although builders have to keep raising prices, they are encouraged that demand and home sales “remain strong.” (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates rose slightly this last week. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up four points, to 3.09%. The 15-year was up three points, to 2.33%. (6)In other news making headlines…Foreclosures on the RiseForeclosure filings jumped higher in September, after pandemic-related moratoriums were lifted. ATTOM Data Solutions released its Q3 foreclosure report which shows that foreclosure filings were up 24% compared to August, and 102% from a year ago. (7)Economists have been predicting a spike in foreclosures, but RealtyTrac's Rick Sharga says: “Despite the increased level of foreclosure activity in September, we're still far below historically normal numbers.” He says they are almost 70% lower than they were before the pandemic. And light years away from the number of foreclosures in mid-2009.Foreclosure filings were approaching 600,000 per quarter back then. Currently, there are 45,500 filings for the third quarter of this year.Single-Family Rent GrowthSingle-family rent growth quadrupled in August. CoreLogic says the year-over-year rate of growth was 9.3%, and represents the fastest annual rent growth in 16 years. (8)The single-family category includes both detached and attached units, such as duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhomes, row homes, co-ops, and condos. Rent growth spiked the most for detached homes. Annualized rent growth for attached units was 6.4% while the rent for detached homes rose 11.7%.The city with the highest rent growth was Miami. Rents in Miami were up 21.5%. That pushed Phoenix into second place for the first time in almost three years. Rounding out the top five are Las Vegas, Austin, and Dallas. New Forecast for Top Markets in 2022New forecasts are coming out about next year's hot real estate markets. PwC just released its 2022 Emerging Trends in Real Estate report. The report includes a top-10 list of highly ranked real estate markets for 2022. Several of them are also on our list of recommendations for single-family rentals. Those markets include Tampa/St. Petersburg, Charlotte, Dallas/Fort Worth and Atlanta.PwC is also recommending those cities, and others, for the construction of new homes. If you have been following RealWealth, you know that we have expanded our focus on existing single-family rentals to also include the construction of new rental homes.

Alongside work, Gian sits on the board of The UK's largest mental health conference, This Can Happen and is an ambassador for Missing People Charity. In 2015, an unexpected family tragedy changed Gian's life forever.  When returning back to work, Gian saw the power of being able to share his emotions and being his full self at work and decoded to leave PwC to set up TLC Lions.  Lions coming from his and his father's middle name.  Gian brought together 25 ordinary people with extraordinary stories globally to share real life stories and life-changing experiences at large organisations around the topics of Mental Health, Inclusion and Talent Development. Gian is one of TLC Lions' key storytellers and shares his experience of managing his mental health whilst coping with a family tragedy and the high demands of the corporate world.  Through his story he highlights the importance of empathetic leadership, managing one's own mental health and building resilience.  In his talks Gian often shares his practical tips for self-care and some of the coping mechanisms that allowed him to find strength in tough times. Some key points from our interview:·        How after his father was murdered overseas it changed his outlook on life forever·        How at 23 years old he found himself leading a missing persons investigation which is also why he supports the charity “Missing People” ·        How he learnt the importance of self-care at 24 when he had to press restart and reinvent himself·        How he became passionate about bringing self-care and emotion back into the workplace after a colleague ended his life by suicide·        How is passionate about changing culture within organisations using the power of storytelling *                                     *                                             *                               "Unbroken: Healing Through Storytelling" features  individuals who have all triumphed after adversity and have not just bounced back in life, but forward and are now making a difference for others.She really believes in the power that comes when we share our stories, that in fact we are not story tellers but story healers.
