Summary: Todd Caponi fell into sales, then fell in love with the decision science surrounding it. He turned that into a career encompassing multiple sales leadership roles. He's building the revenue capacity of one tech company from the ground-up into Chicago's fastest-growing, another where his efforts helped drive the organization to a successful IPO followed by an acquisition worth almost $3B, and another where his turnaround efforts were rewarded with the American Business “Stevie” Award for Worldwide Vice President of Sales of the Year. He left his role as the Chief Revenue Officer to write his first book, The Transparency Sale; which has since earned 2019's “Best Book Award” in the “Business: Sales” category at the American Book Awards, while also earning International Best-Seller status. Todd also hosts The Sales History Podcast, bringing the incredible (and sometimes strange) brains from the earliest days of sales' past into the present. Much of the sales wisdom from the past hasn't changed. Key Moments: 03:00 - Is saying "yes" always the way to go? 09:15 - Expectation inflation 25:00 - "How are they better than us?". How Todd turned the question of tell me why your better than your competitor into a transparent conversation and disarmed a meeting. 27:00 - Lead with your strengths and reveal your weakness Connect with Todd https://www.linkedin.com/in/toddcaponi/ (LinkedIN) Connect with Us! https://www.linkedin.com/company/53108426/admin/ (LinkedIN: ) https://stories-of-selling-human.captivate.fm/ (Website: )

Anudit Vikram, former board member of the IAB Data Center of Excellence and Chief Product Officer, MediaMath joins me in a discussion about consumer privacy (amid Amazon fines), Google's FLoC (which recently wrapped up the first phase of testing), and addressable/scalable identity solutions to replace third-party cookies. Anudit explains, “While there has been a flurry of activity preparing for the demise of the third-party cookie, the pushback around it and signals from the EU hinted that it would not be smooth sailing for Google, so, ultimately, it's not a complete shock that the timing changed. There is no question that first-party data performs better, and that the quality of third-party data is questionable, but that is not the only factor driving transparency. Transparency to the actual user – what we call addressability – is directly affected too. To continue the momentum of creating a more transparent supply chain, industry leaders must continue work around the activation of first party identity options and creating cohort-based solutions. As far as next steps for the industry, marketers, advertisers, publishers and the like should use this time to start working with first party identity solutions and perfect the stack they will use, while still being able to leverage the scale provided by third-party cookies.”

Colin Powell's Pivotal Moment That Wasn't

Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, Joint Chiefs chairman, and omnipresence in American foreign policy for the past 20 years, died on Monday from complications from COVID-19. He was 84-years-old and been sick for years with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer.  Colin Powell was many things to many people. A symbol of the American dream. The public voice — for a time — of the Iraq War. A so-called “RINO,” or Republican-in-name-only. A good soldier. Though widely remembered as a barrier-breaking hero by folks across the aisle, in his death, as in life, there are those who are using Colin Powell as an opportunity for scoring political points.  Looking back at the life of Colin Powell, it is worth recalling that he was once one of America's most popular public officials, polling favorably among 85 percent of Americans in a 2002 Gallup poll. But what Colin Powell is perhaps most remembered for is his 2003 presentation to the UN Security Council explaining the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. A little over a year later, Powell went on NBC's Meet the Press and essentially retracted his assertion, saying it "turned out that the sourcing was inaccurate and wrong and in some cases deliberately misleading." Brooke speaks with Fred Kaplan, a veteran reporter on foreign policy and national security, long-time writer of Slate's "War Stories" column, and even longer-time husband of Brooke, about the life and legacy of Colin Powell.

Karolina Guilcapi has managed private luxury tours since 2006, endlessly promoting a hands-on travel approach. With a background from Johnson & Wales University, a school dedicated to food and travel, she has been deeply involved in the growth of the tourism industry. Specializing in Latin America, Karolina represented her product at countless trade shows, organizations, and events around the world, inspiring travelers to become lifelong clients. She has tasted her way across 40 countries continuously inspecting services, meeting local foodies, and searching out the next morsel to offer in her itineraries. She treats food like she does travel – an experience that should utterly satisfy you. In this episode of Destination On The Left, Karolina shares why collaboration with chefs and organizations across the South American continent has allowed her to build a thriving travel business even during the global pandemic. Karolina also discusses why anticipating and addressing travelers' concerns and needs has become a cornerstone of her work. What You Will Learn: How immigrating to New York from Poland at age ten sparked Karolina's passion for travel and exploring new places, and why she focuses her work on Latin American travel Why Karolina chose to start her company, Sated Ventures, and how it has taken off even during the global pandemic How Sated Ventures has carved out a unique niche by focusing on local chefs as guides to the unique flavors, ingredients and culinary history of the region What new skills and talents Karolina has discovered since launching her business, and what challenges she has overcome during the pandemic Why collaboration and being active within the local community as a helpful partner can be a powerful organic way to grow your business What changes, new challenges and opportunities Karolina expects as we begin to return to global travel Why understanding and problem-solving for travelers is a key component of Karolina's work, and why seeing things from the perspective of the traveler is vital Creating a Unique Travel Niche Through Collaboration Karolina Guilcapi is an innovative travel expert who has carved out a unique niche for her company, Sated Ventures, by focusing on the unique culinary adventures and flavors to be found in South America.

Karolina also discusses why anticipating and addressing travelers' concerns and needs has become a cornerstone of her work. Transparency, Being Helpful, and Identifying Partnership Opportunities As Karolina said during our conversation, world travelers often save the South American experience for last, preferring to tour Europe and Asia. However, by leveraging creative partnerships, Karolina is working to change that. Karolina's organization, Sated Ventures, focuses on the unique dining experiences available in South America and works closely with local chefs, restaurants and other food industry organizations to create unique, once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences for her clients. By maintaining a tight focus on this unique niche and by working tirelessly to be helpful to her clients and partners, Karolina has been able to organically grow her business even during the unique travel challenges of the global pandemic. This extends to anticipating and understanding traveler concerns about the coronavirus pandemic and working to address them in an empathetic way.

“How can you have a digital society where you don't even know what the rules are?”In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Kalev Leetaru, a media fellow at the RealClearFoundation and senior fellow at the George Washington University Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.Instead of repealing Section 230, he argues for an amendment to Section 230 that would compel social media companies to make available extensive dataset collections on what they're censoring, why each individual post or account was censored, and how the social media companies' algorithms decide what content is boosted or demoted.While some argue for repealing Section 230 immunity for social media companies altogether, Leetaru says it would have the opposite of the intended effect. Instead of decreasing censorship, it would only cause social media companies to become more avid censors as they try to avoid costly lawsuits.

“Companies are really recognizing that this concept of greenwashing, and these bold ambitious assertions that they can't back up, that's no longer, that's not transparency. That is risk, and that exposing an organization to very concrete reputational and other risks….I think it's all about transparency driving trust, but it has to be credible, it has to be authentic and it has to be meaningful.” Kristen Sullivan, Deloitte Sustainability Compliance on Electric Ladies Podcast A new report from the Journal Nature Climate Change reports that 85% of the world's population is negatively affected by climate change. With that report and the big UN Climate Conference known as COP26 coming up in days – and President Biden's infrastructure bills moving through Congress – we have been focusing on risk and the changing role of companies in society.  So, what do companies really think about their role today and how to report on it, called ESG reporting for environment, social and governance? Listen to Kristen Sullivan, head of Deloitte's Sustainability and Supply Chain Social Compliance Services talk about it with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson in this important and engaging interview. The management consulting firms have a unique perspective on this, because they analyze trends and advise companies across industries.    You'll hear about: The need companies have to define the attributes of ESG that drive performance “in a data-driven way” so they can “evaluate long term value”? The critical role of transparency, primarily to build trust, and how and why companies can struggle with it. The impact of the rapid increased prioritizing of ESG from a “nice to have” to “must have,” especially over the past couple of years due to the confluence of covid, George Floyd, and climate change. How companies now have a broader definition of what drives risk including “financial risk, operational risk, reputational risk” and how they can systematically integrate those factors to find seize opportunities. Plus, insightful career advice …. “And I think that especially through a broader, sort of ESG-purpose lens, that establishing a competency in a business context (is important in your career), whether that's marketing or finance or supply chain or operations, whatever it is, and layering on a differentiated perspective – whether it's climate risk, whether it's societal consideration – to really be able to deliver on that traditional competence but at such a higher level, and through that value-enhancing lens.” Kristen Sullivan on the Electric Ladies podcast   Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too.

Pennsylvania State Representative Andrew Lewis, representing portions of Dauphin County, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss House Bill 1332, a bill he sponsored hoping to bring more transparency to the decision-making process for curricula in Pennsylvania schools. The bill, if signed into law, would make school curriculum materials more accessible to parents, requiring schools across the state to post curriculum materials on their public-facing websites. Lewis explains why he took up the cause, telling many stories of parents who discovered curriculum they were vehemently against, only after it was too late. In addition, Lewis explains whether he pursued bipartisanship in looking for co-signers, and tells what he hopes to accomplish by passing the bill.

On the other hand, they can set agendas in ways that are considered more ‘palatable by the mainstream opinion or elites. Quotes“It can be hard for NGOs to step back sufficiently to make sure they are complimentary and respectful of the power and agency of social movements” “NGOs have to be careful in how they exercise their gatekeeping capabilities” "Long-term, flexible funding is one of the most important ways in which social movements can be supported” Resources:·       LinkedIn·       Personal Website·       Facebook GroupArticles mentioned:       Understanding Activism (2017) with Rhize and The Atlantic Council – Link       The State of the Growing Movement Fighting Inequality (2019) – Fight Inequality Alliance, Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity and Rhize – LinkClick here to subscribe.Twitter LinkedIn Facebook Youtube

While Democrats fight amongst themselves over getting their legislative agenda passed,  Senate majority leader Chuck Shumer is locked in his own battle with minority leader Mitch McConnell over raising the country's debt ceiling. Democrats need ten Senate Republicans to join them in voting to raise the debt limit to avoid as the Washington Post put it “catapulting the country into an economic recession”. The Post also cited the potential for quote, “widespread financial havoc” - the New York Times noted widespread warnings of “global economic calamity”  If all of this sounds familiar...it is. For years, the media have treated the perennial debt ceiling debate like hurricane season. Is disaster heading to our shores? When will calamity strike? What's the projected damage?

Pennsylvania State Representative Kate Klunk, representing portions of York County, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss a new bill proposed by her and other Republicans, written in effort to gain more transparency and access of data related to the Coronavirus epidemic. The pushback by the Democrats features claims of Republicans trouncing on privacy laws, while Republicans argue that this is instead an update to Right To Know laws, which the Wolf administration has used to cover their lack of transparency. Kate Klunk explains why this topic is so close to her heart, telling of her grandmother who was in a nursing home as the Department of Health made horrible decisions, placing positive patients into nursing homes near those at most risk. Klunk was luckily able to gather data from her mother's nursing home facility after the state refused to provide the data that would be necessary to make a scientific decision as to whether to keep a loved one in a nursing home. Also, due to this close call, Klunk has kept on top of the issues related to nursing homes, and provides an update on the situation.

It was 13 years ago this month when news broke that the Wall Street investment firm Lehman Brothers collapsed, setting in motion the financial crisis that devastated the world's economy. For all the misery the financial meltdown caused, Americans have never balked at opportunities to relive the crisis through hundreds of films, books and even plays. But while greedy investment bankers have become a staple archetype of recent movies like The Wolf of Wall Street, The Big Short, and Margin Call, Hollywood hasn't always portrayed Wall Street with such cynicism. In 2018 Brooke spoke to Per Hansen, professor of business history at the Copenhagen Business School, about his study examining cinematic depictions of big business and financial institutions. Hansen sifted through 81 films to understand how America's volatile attitudes on capitalism have evolved through other periods of boom and bust. He and Brooke discussed how classics like Wall Street, It's a Wonderful Life, and The Apartment have reflected and actively shaped the way we feel about money. This segment is from our September 14th, 2018 episode, Doomed to Repeat.
