When it comes to disruption, few industries have experienced as much upheaval over the past 20 years as the music industry. The lucrative CD era ended with the rise of Napster piracy, and the introduction of Apple's iTunes did little to stem the losses, It's only within the last decade, with the rise of streaming services like Spotify, that music revenue has begun to recover. Jay Gilbert had a frontrow seat to all of this turmoil. Working for companies like Warner Music and Universal Music Group, he got to know just about every facet of the music-making process. Then in 2015, he struck off on his own and launched a consulting business. To help raise awareness of his services, he began writing a weekly newsletter called Your Morning Coffee. What started out as an email sent out to a few hundred friends eventually grew to 15,000 readers, and it's now one of the most influential newsletters in the industry. In my interview with Jay, we talked about how the newsletter found an audience, its contribution to his consulting business, and why he doesn't want to scale it into a traditional media company.

The 16:9 PODCAST IS SPONSORED BY SCREENFEED – DIGITAL SIGNAGE CONTENT If an entrepreneur or an established brand wants to open a temporary pop-up store on a busy retail street, there's a lot of planning, work and cost involved in making that actually happen. So what if there was a retail space in a high profile location that could be rented for as short a time window as an hour ... that uses LCD video walls and software to establish the look and feel of the shop? That's the operating premise behind Sook, an interesting UK start-up that has digital-first spaces for rent in attractive locations around the UK, including London's retail-lined Oxford Street. I visited that Oxford Street location when I was in London recently, and had a good chat with Sook founder and CEO John Hoyle. Subscribe to this podcast: iTunes * Google Play * RSS TRANSCRIPT John Hoyle: So it's really easy to quickly create a clean and bespoke environment and so that means you can literally do whatever you want in these places. It's a space that is as much about non-retail uses as it is about retail. It could be somewhere to have a screening of a movie, it could be somewhere to do yoga, pilates, or meditation or it's a shop in the more traditional form. The whole rationale behind this is that if you facilitate hourly access to units like this, which would otherwise be empty, you can actually drive three to five times more revenue than a traditional lease because you are making use of the time before, you know, standard rent is over a 10-year period, deeply inefficient because someone sits in a space and expects there to be effectively making all of their money on in the peak hours whenever those are, which is like a Saturday. Using this you can drive your own footfall, drive different peaks across 120 hours of the week and generate more revenue, as well as make it much more efficient for occupiers to come and engage with the space. It's completely modular. You can take this entire fit-out away and move it elsewhere. It's all free-standing so there's a selection of furniture. You can see the hanging rails and shelving units here which makes it super easy for someone to come and self-serve if they want to. So using QR codes, you can learn exactly what you need to do, full WiFi, utilities, audio, et cetera, anyone can come quickly turn this into a space to use for whatever they want. These modules obviously can be disassembled and moved to another space. So we don't take leases. We are just a device that operates as an asset management tool within specific spaces. If a landlord wants to move us, they can, there's a small cost associated with that, but it's much more economically and environmentally sustainable to have this fit-out that can be reused in multiple other locations. This one is slightly compromised because we're over two stories and the rear loading is in the basement. It actually works better on one level with a big back of the house. It's a bit like a theater set. All of the physical preparation happens out back so that you can efficiently roll into the space for your activation. I'll show you downstairs. Everything that's here, we can take away. There's storage out back, but this has been everything from a rave for Jaegrmeister who launched a party, to the launch of a High Streets Reports by a big industry insider to a salsa dancing class. So it's all about using the same space for multiple different activations and doing it in a way that allows digital content to drive how you make that place appropriate. That's why it's interesting to me that they have started to add digital screens to retail kind of after the fact and now we're in the situation where you have people who look like this, that are setting up pop-up retail with digital as the enabling part of it. So you can change the feel of a store, change the message, and everything else with a few keystrokes. John Hoyle: Absolutely. If you think about where the brands of the future come from, they are gonna predominantly start online because the barriers to entry are much lower. But they need that IRL engagement to have an authentic touchpoint with their customers. But they don't wanna scale as the private equity-backed retailers in the past have by taking 120 leases and then marketing them. They want to dip in and dip out and have an online-type solution that's agile to determine where works best for their product and to make use of the fact that they can drive their own footfall through social media. So if you think about it, I suppose a good example in the UK might be a, let's say Superdry, a challenger brand that's had to play the game of real estate to get where it is, to become AN established brand. We believe that we can facilitate that happening for the brands of the future without them having to need a real estate department to negotiate leases, to deal with the portfolio of assets. In fact, there will be this agile solution that they can use as they see fit, and what's interesting about that is that suddenly you are changing the role of a shop as a static distribution channel for stuff, and you're making it much more of a point of engagement for customers to actually meet IRL, the people that sit behind their brand and the products, and that can happen everywhere. There's no need now for perhaps the flagship in Central London or the concept store in Coven Garden because the various entries are lowered by this solution, you could take your product to secondary locations around the UK, do it for a weekend drives an enormous reaction because the people in, let's say Northeast England are not used to seeing something like that and then get out without any of the legacy, liabilities or commitments that you would normally get through these. It's a service in just about every respect, right? If I'm a fashion designer, which is a very novel concept, if I wanted to open up a pop-up store for the weekend, I wouldn't have to worry about the AV. I wouldn't have to worry about any of that stuff, I just do a deal to have the space for six hours or whatever it is and you guys can take it from there, right? John Hoyle: You can dice it in whatever way you want. So you could be completely absent and we would run the entire piece for you, including fulfillment, staffing, and even the design of your space, and you can obviously have complete control because using Canva, which is an Australian Photoshop unicorn, you can drag and drop whatever you want onto the walls and you can walk around in 3D before you come here. So you can be in the US and control space in Oxford Street without having to be here. So that opens up enormous opportunities where at a fraction of the cost we can serve you. But it's more about just that flexibility for occupiers. It's also making physical spaces available for all sorts of uses that are not necessarily traditional retailers. Social media is becoming increasingly important as part of the customer shopping experience. So working with those sorts of brands to engage IRL, onboard customers online, and complement what they're trying to do online is really powerful. But equally, if you think about amenities. In the UK, retail banking branches are closing down in record numbers because they just don't make any sense with the rise of online banking. There is a real community value to those places for some people. Could we run a banking offer in the lunchtime slot, which is when people wanna go to the banks and not be there the rest of the time? Can you bring digital art into play? Gaming, estate agency, car showrooms? A whole spectrum of retail uses that basically haven't existed in the physical high street for all sorts of reasons previously to be used in a much more agile way in our spaces. Is there a typical time window, like the amount of time when you are seeing bookings? John Hoyle: It completely varies. We've had a guy take the space for an hour, turn it into a shrine to his girlfriend and propose to her. Equally, we were a Corona testing center in one of our spaces for I think 14-15 months, which is a sign of the times. We have three-month bookings. We have three-day bookings, and that's the point, different people wanna do different things at different times and that really is the core of what we do. No one needs a shop seven days a week, hardly, practically, no one needs a shop for a decade. Think about the time that you need to do activations. Let us manage the headache of all of that, learn from it from analytics, and then get out and do something different. The old mantra in real estate about location. I suspect that still applies, right? John Hoyle: It does, but it's a mindset rather than a reality. My belief is that footfall is a flawed metric, and that's what really underpins that location piece. The way we've done retail traditionally is that you found a location that suits you. Adjacencies are important, but you are really basing it off the demographic in the area, and then footfall, and that's a deeply inefficient model when you think about it. To make a 10-year bet on a place based on a data set that you see at that period in time, sit there for a decade, and only make money on maybe a Saturday or a Sunday. The rest of the time you have a loss-leading asset. You can't be agile and change if something about that location changes, and you're not learning anything about customers elsewhere. So what we are saying is why not be far more granular, why not figure out which hours of the week your product works in? So Greg's, which is an incredibly successful restaurant brand essentially, it's famous for its sausage rolls, and they sold more Greggs sausage rolls last year than there were Big Macs in the UK, to put some scale on it. So their biggest selling unit is at Birmingham New Street Station and its peak time is from 10:30 on a Friday evening. It's people who've been drinking in pubs, buying sausage rolls, and are out on their way home. The other time they do a lot of business for essentially the building trades very early in the morning. So they are completely different profiles to an apparel brand, for instance. What we're saying is why don't you blend all of those different uses into more concentrated, more efficient spaces? Is it nimble enough that you could do multiple occupants in a day? John Hoyle: Yes, absolutely. Have you done that? John Hoyle: Yes. When you think about it, most shops don't open till 10:00, and most close at about six. Then you've got four, maybe five hours in the morning, which lend themselves to wellness, for instance, and then in the evening when shops sit dormant, this could be an event space, and that's pretty lucrative. In fact, in its own right. I think we could hang our entire business model on what shops would see after hours in certain locations to use this amazing digital tool, to be a private room for a restaurant or could it be a Deliveroo restaurant for instance, or could it just be a party, but rather than renting a bar and having a minimum bar spend of a few thousand pounds, you can have something bespoke, where there is amazing digital content of the person whose birthday is, for instance. Children's parties, and meetups, there are limitless ways of effectively monetizing space when in normal retail times, it's just closed. Yeah, I've certainly heard of restaurants that are daytime cafes that have realized, okay, we have a kitchen and everything else, but we shut down at 3:00 PM, why don't we have a breakfast place in the evening? It's a Mexican place or whatever, and they're using the same kitchen, but you're sweating the asset more. John Hoyle: Absolutely. The same principle applies here, just we've gone to extra lengths to make it more versatile. The food and beverage pieces are probably our most challenging use case because of the infrastructure that's required. You can't just have bare walls and exact screens, so that's our limit. Although you can cater in these places, you just can't really prepare food through cooking. But yeah, given that there are fast approaching a hundred thousand empty shops in the UK alone, and that problem persists throughout developed markets, why aren't we making use of these assets better and doing it in a way that can be financially sustainable? If you do it, what's really interesting is that there is a market for people who want to use these spaces at the right price point, and in the UK, if you have an empty shop it becomes a business rate liability, which is like property tax in the US. So an empty unit isn't just an empty unit, it's actually a liability for landlords. So what we're saying is let's bring them back into the community, let's make them accessible. Let's engage with customers in a completely different way, to the risk-free basis that has been the important use of the real estate asset furniture for so long and engages with a whole new spectrum of occupiers that just didn't exist 10 years ago. If you have a hundred thousand empty shops, is it a risk to you with that many available spaces, the rental property becomes commoditized, the price comes down, and it becomes a challenge for you to be competitive with that? John Hoyle: Not really, because our model is an arbitrage on whatever the rental levels are. Right now empty shops are a huge opportunity for us, and when you think about it from our customer's point of view, actually rent shop occupation costs are only about 30% of the total costs of having a shop. When you think about the cost of staffing an empty shop. To my point where if your shop is only really profitable on a Saturday, It is really painful having to staff it for the other six days of the week and a landlord will demand that you do. If you're in a shopping center, you have to be open. That is part of the deal, and you think about the inefficiencies around stock, people buy, and there are billions of pounds of stock sitting on shelves around the UK. It's absurd. Why not lend an online demand model with an IRL activation? Yeah, create a public showroom and get fulfillment on the back end. John Hoyle: Exactly, so we believe that we are creating the opportunity for massive efficiency across the board. It is hard to get brands to think differently. There is a huge amount of inertia around some of the big established brands who just have always done things a certain way. It's the, “I want that unit. I want it for 10 years with a five-year break, If we get X amount of football and we price our stuff at Y, that will convert into profit.” There are lots of guys that cannot think beyond that and that's one of the challenges of being changemakers like we are is getting the 10% of early adopters to think differently about and do stuff, right? So where did this come from, this idea? John Hoyle: I launched it out of an accelerator called Zinc, which is all about delivering social ventures for profit. My background is in real estate. I'm a landlord, formerly at Grosvenor in Central London. So I was deeply frustrated having been on the other side of the fence about the inefficiencies and the huge numbers of occupiers who are excluded from shops. The reason there are a hundred thousand empty shops is partly price points, but partly accessibility. All the ancillary costs around lawyers, agents, and these guys are all set up to do deals that have to be at least a year, but generally five and ideally ten. That struck me as such an enormous opportunity for disruption. That we've seen in the office space. We've seen it in the huge residential space. Huge global unicorn businesses have disrupted those sectors, but no one has done that in retail yet, and it's slightly more complex. There are the customers of your customers to think about. There's stock, there's a brand, and that's why a fit-out is necessary to facilitate all of that. So if I'm an apparel designer who has just come out of some fashion school and I wanted to open my own, the commitment to do so would be many hundreds of thousands of pounds to do that, and through this model, I can open up on Oxford Street where we are for a day and have a popup and it's gonna cost well, what would that cost for a day? John Hoyle: It depends. So it's demand-based pricing, so it's cheaper on a Monday than it is on a Saturday. If you can drive your own footfall, then you might as well take a low-value retail allowance. But you can on a good day get this space for probably just under a thousand pounds on Oxford Street, which yeah, no commitment, no utilities, no legacy issues. You come, do your thing, and when you work it works, you've got clear evidence of that that it is really useful as part of your entrepreneurial journey in terms of building momentum, it's great for content, et cetera, and the halo effect that we all recognize of our engagement is massive for your future on mindsets. Are you funding this yourself or have you got financial backers? John Hoyle: We have done four funding rounds. We are fundraising at the moment as well. This is our seed round where it's running for the next three months. We're likely to have strategic partnerships with big asset managers who are invested and some retail groups. To date, it's been largely angels in the UK. There's a really vibrant ecosystem of angel investment in the UK because the government gives some great tax breaks called EIS. I'm curious if when you approach people if they give you when the tilted head looks or they get it quickly? John Hoyle: I think as with anything that's new, there is a bit of adoption. So we find that for our first booking, we insist that there is someone in our sales or customer service team present to help people because there's an element of anxiety. It's a bit like if you organize a party for your other half or family member and you're a bit nervous about the caterers and are people gonna turn up, et cetera, then the party starts and you relax. We see that a lot from our first-timers, but we're at 40% repeat customers, and so for subsequent uses, when you know where it all lies, you know what to expect, it's much less stressful for people. It's just like your first day at the office when you don't know whether the photocopier works or what your password is, all of that becomes far less scary. So I think the answer is that onboarding involves more friction than we hope will ultimately be the case, and we are very much pushing the envelope of change. There is a bit of a learning curve, and then you see the penny drop and the opportunity. People's heads essentially explode with opportunities to do things that they could do because everyone's got an idea of how they might use a space like this more. I'm a digital signage guy, so that's what makes me awfully curious about it. How fundamental were the digital screens to make this work? John Hoyle: Absolutely fundamental. So there is a business that is failing at the moment that I was a customer of. They are effectively a booking system for empty shops, and they're pioneers in many ways because they've pushed the idea of flexible occupation, but they really are no different from a normal real estate agent, and the problem with just being a booking system is that you don't provide any of the services that are absolutely essential to launching a shop. They're renting an empty cavity. You gotta figure out the rest? John Hoyle: Yeah, and if you do that, they'll only rent for a minimum of a week. You turn up. You spend the first day setting up, and the next couple of days, no one comes in because it's Tuesday or Wednesday. Maybe you have a launch event on Thursday. A few people pick it up a bit Friday or Saturday, and then it's over. You spent probably 15,000 pounds. You've had to buy all of this deeply unsustainable, both financially and environmentally stuff in order to facilitate the fit-out, and you've got nothing really to retain from a legacy perspective With ours, the digital screens are utterly fundamental because that's your fit-out. That's what gives you the environment. You can take that content, you can reuse it on your socials, and can reuse it in other Sook spaces. You can send your stock around. But we will provide essentially the entire platform to allow your Sook to take place without you, wherever else you want. Could you do these locations without the screens? John Hoyle: It would remove a USP of ours, and of course, there is sometimes demand, but what we are trying to do is a hundred percent occupancy, and a big part of that is out-of-home media. So when we're not actively booked, we can be a billboard for your screen, which is a super light touch. It can operate when shops are closed throughout the night and generate revenue. It is a really powerful, utilitarian way of squeezing revenue out of latent assets, and obviously, an empty shop's just an empty shop, and you can't do any of that. Do you have a handle on what you're using for the displays? The screens are obvious, but, are you using a particular piece of software or…? John Hoyle: You have to ask the AV guys. We've been through several iterations and in classic startup style we've tried lots of tools, we keep the ones that work, we discard the ones that don't and we're constantly iterating and I would describe that device upstairs, like a massive iPhone. Obviously, it's way less sophisticated than the iPhone today. But the principle is the same. Physically, it iterates just your Apple device and then the software behind it upgrades, but without you needing to change the device. So that is the process that we're constantly evolving. When did the first Sook open? John Hoyle: I opened one in 2019 as the sort of first MVP in Cambridge, and then we won a few prizes straight off the bat because it had such success in Cambridge. Why Cambridge? John Hoyle: That's where I live. I wanted to prove that there was demand, which we did, and enough so that Legal in General, the insurance company, and pension fund, gave us our first proper site in a shopping center in Cambridge, which we opened in January, 2020, but of course, we all know what happened a month later. We were pretty quiet op operationally throughout all of 2020 and quite a lot of 2021 for obvious reasons. But we emerged from the pandemic with this site on Oxford street, one on South Molton Street, and one in Edinburgh. So it was clear that we had identified a need from landlords and we've expanded. Is it important to be on high streets like this, like really well-known ones? John Hoyle: Yes and no. So at this stage in our business, the startup, people don't know what it is to your point, people wanna understand it and they wanna be in great places, and we have to prove that investing is a success, and then we can generate revenue. So it is really helpful being on Oxford Street as opposed to somewhere unrecognizable. But our goal is for it to function everywhere and for it to be a platform where Nike can reach a customer in a place that is utterly undesirable from a profile perspective, but where there are still obviously many customers and we believe actually the impact in those places could be bigger, and you asked me earlier about whether the erosion of the retail market could affect us. Well, one of the things that brands will pay us for is the opportunity cost of being able to do this, which is often in less desirable retail locations with a much higher ROI for us than on Oxford Street. I'll give you a good example. MasterCard used our space in the Metro Center, which is in the northeast of England, it's probably one of the least affluent areas in the UK. We're in big shops, bigger shops and regional shopping centers there, and they're paying us London prices in Newcastle for the opportunity to have those spaces. My dream is that there can be a Sook on every high street and it can address all of the community goals in the same way that maybe a town hall does, as well as being a state-of-the-art retail space for brands to dip in and out to engage with those customers and create a halo effect. Because a fashion designer can be in Newcastle and, doesn't have to come here to launch? John Hoyle: No, it's bigger than that. Why can't they be in New York or Dubai or Beijing? Stock light, you can use physical stock, but so much of it can be digital, purchases get made online, which through using QR codes, it's not necessarily about leaving with physical stuff, but if you are a global brand on a mission to scale, what a brilliant way of dipping your toe in the water. And because there are so many empty sites, landlords love something that is gonna delight, that's going to be good for placemaking and community and that in some instances is more important than actually a business case for the space. It's a tool for asset managers to drive footfall into assets. You see lots of distressed real estate where somebody's put in a gift shop or a calendar shop or whatever, and they don't have a lot of money and it just looks sad and it doesn't lift the street. It takes it down. John Hoyle: Exactly. We wanna be the opposite of that. And I really believe that constant rotation of activity is the way to bring life back. Because you could have the coolest brand in the world in your unit, I always use the fashion apparel one, but maybe there's a better example of that, but if its peak hours are only on a Saturday, the rest of the week is to all intents and purposes in an empty shop. So it isn't adding anything to those high streets. But running up the costs. So how many Sooks do you have now? John Hoyle: We've got 11. We want to double it next year, and part of that is reliant on fundraising. We're also allowing some other systems to list on our site, and we have our first overseas site agreed upon in South Africa, Johannesburg. Got opportunities in the UAE, the US, Canada, and Europe. As you would not be surprised to hear, I'm just balancing the amazing demand we have for our product with a fundraising environment that's a bit tepid, thanks to all sorts of reasons, not least in the UK because of very recent economic turmoil, which is completely self-inflicted. Where is the business out overall, given what you just said about the economy and Covid? John Hoyle: We doubled our sales last year on year. I'm really happy about that. But that would be in an anomaly year. John Hoyle: No, I think we will potentially quadruple it this year, and even if we don't add any more sites, we should double it again. The demand from global brands is through the roof. TikTok, Quikr,. Sonos, Universal Music Group, Uber, MasterCard. So they're finding you, even though you're a startup in most respect? John Hoyle: They're finding us so that's incredibly encouraging. My challenge is not having today, although I expect to rectify that in February, the capital really to run at so many of these opportunities. This is a brilliant time for a disruptor to emerge. The sector is on its knees, asset managers are desperate for a solution. We have a solution. It's proven. It can get better, it can get more exciting. The fit-out you saw upstairs can evolve dramatically, and in fact, there's a very exciting space that I'll point you towards up Oxford Street, which we hope to take over quite soon, that you should go and have a look at, which is really the next generation of what Sook could be even more immersive. Could you have a larger, almost like the department store, level place with multiple shops, like there are lots of department stores that I've shops within shops now. John Hoyle: Yes. So we've talked to two department stores about providing that service. My personal view is that the department store model is inherently inefficient because you go to some amazing stores that I love in New York, like SHOWFIELDS which is the new age department store, and just like every other shop it has a peak and then a massive drop when no one's in there, and that just to me, as a utilitarian, who is very focused on the revenues that real estate assets can yield, just seems a bit mad. So the answer is yes, we could work in a department store, but we'd be in that instance much more beneficial to the department store than to us in terms of driving feet at times when they don't necessarily have customers. If people wanna find out more about your company, where do they find you? John Hoyle: www.sook.space. Everything is on our website. We're at Sook Spaces on social media, across all channels. Follow me on LinkedIn. I'm John Hoyle, and yeah, tell the world about Sook because it is coming to a street near you. All right. Thank you.

Limitless with Johanna Buchweitz
After seeing a viral Youtube Video, while at work, of a 29-year-old woman hearing her own voice for the first time, Bridget Hilton knew she wanted to recreate that joy in that video over and over again. She sent it to her friend Joe, who had done philanthropic work, cashed out her 401k, worth $5,000, from Universal Music Group, and quit. She high-fived Joe and hopped on a plane to China, without a business plan or any idea how the electronics industry worked to source products for their idea, without even considering they were going up against some of the biggest companies in the world, such as Apple and Sony.Starting out by filling her apartment's kitchen with inventory and making their own packaging from purchases at Michael's craft store, LSTN then grew to 8 figures, partnering with companies such as Delta, Google, Spotify, Wyndham, Virgin, and Amazon. Most importantly, Bridget and Joe donated over a million dollars, traveled to 36 countries, and helped over 50,000 people receive hearing aids through their charitable partner, Starkey Hearing Foundation.In this episode of Limitless, Bridget shares her journey of how she created the first social enterprise company in the electronics industry, and the experiences along the way that caused her to create The Experiential Billionaire Movement, an inspirational movement dedicated to experiencing more and regretting less. From traveling the world helping others hear for the first time, to sharing the stage with Sir Richard Branson and U.S. Presidents, to turning herself into, as she calls it “an experiential guinea pig”, Bridget has truly experienced it all, while growing an 8 figure company that delivers true impact and having a whole lot of fun along the way.IN THIS LIMITLESS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARNHow to create a positive impact on others through your company How to strategically position your company against the big-name competitors in the market How the power of belief can potentially transform your life Why experiences are the real wealth in our livesHow patience is key in landing major partnershipsLINKS FROM THIS EPISODEJoin the waitlist for Frankly Co.: https://franklyco.com/?utm=early-accessMore Frankly Co. resources: https://franklyco.com/resources/Connect with Bridget on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bridgethiltonFollow Bridget on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bridgetlhilton/Visit the LSTN Sound Co. website: https://lstnsound.com/ Follow LSTN Sound Co. on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LSTN Visit the Experiential Billionaire website: https://www.experientialbillionaire.com/

In a possible deal with Universal Music Group and Shamrock Holdings Dre could be paid for his masters to The Chronic as well as his portions of Kendrick Lamar's catalog.

In the podcast interview Jim and Joe discussed key WMS trends for 2023: Warehouse management systems (WMS) are continuing to move to cloud-based computing. Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. Cloud computing has many advantages and technology leaders like Softeon architect their solutions to work seamlessly with the cloud. To learn more: Understanding WMS in the Cloud with Dan Gilmore Increasing need for material handling integration. To run an effective and efficient warehouse, material handling systems are required, and your WMS must be able to easily integrate with those systems. Rise of the warehouse execution systems (WES). WES are systems used in warehouses and distribution centers to manage and orchestrate the physical flow of products from receiving through shipping. WES organizes sequences and direct resources – both people and material handling systems necessary to move goods with a warehouse. WMS as part of the broader digital supply chain. Supply chain practitioners are fast realizing the importance of WMS to their supply chains. Companies cannot succeed in meeting customers' expectations in regard to delivery, quality, and consistency without a modern, fully integrated WMS. A WMS help companies to resolve several issues within their supply chain: accuracy, visibility, productivity, and error reduction are just a few.

"Radikalna promena karijere nije nužno loša." U 185. epizodi Pojačalo podkasta gost Ivana Minića je Nikola Jovanović je osnivač i direktor izdavačke kuće Kontra, muzički menadžer pančevačkog benda Buč Kesidi, te potpredsednik Virgin Music Label i član Upravnog odbora Zadužbine Milana Mladenovića. 90-e godine su bile sumorne i teške, a kako je bilo odrastati i pohađati školu tokom istih Nikola pruža osvrt, te priseća se kako je tada, kao školarac, najpre radio u školskoj biblioteci, a potom i u knjižari nakon završetka časova. Ubrzo nakon toga usledilo je lutanje i traženje sebe, što kroz razne studije i fakultete, što kroz razne političke organizacije i stranke. Zašto je imao okačenu sliku Vesne Pešić u sobi i kako mu je politika pomogla da prevaziđe tremu, a u konačnici i da završi fakultet, sagovornik otkriva u nastavku. Tokom godina muzika je bila ta nit koja se večno provlačila kroz Nikolin život. Kada se ukazala prilika da se nađe u redovima prvog muzičke televizije kod nas, Metropolisa, on ju je brže-bolje zgrabio. Kako je bilo raditi na tom TV kanalu, a kako je služiti civilno vojni rok na Univerzijadi, te usred nje dobiti poslovnu ponudu od MTV Adrije, Nikola deli sa slušaocima i gledaocima. Upravo MTV Adria sledeća tema razgovora. Ovaj muzički stručnjak pojašnjava zašto taj projekat nije bio uspešan i po čemu pamti celokupno iskustvo, navodeći kako se uporedo sa tim razvijala njegova prva izdavačka kuća, Lampshade Media, koja je odgovorna za mnoge popularne bendove danas. Nakon što je napustio Lampshade, Nikola je pretvorio nekadašnji magazin Kontru u izdavačku kuću, gde je bio jedini zaposleni. Koliko je zapravo teško stvoriti izvođača, te po čemu se Kontra razlikuje i izdvaja od ostalih izdavačkih kuća, kao i čime se ona danas sve bavi, gost govori u drugom delu podkasta. Za sam kraj Nikola razotkriva kako je nastao fenomen zvani bend Buč Kesidi, čiji je on danas menadžer, te kako je postao potpredsednik Virgin Music Labela za ovaj region i šta je ideja iza Zadužbine Milana Mladenovića, čiji je on nekadašnji upravnik, a sada član Upravnog odbora. Teme u epizodi: - Uvod - Kad porastem biću... - Školovanje i odrastanje tokom burnih 90-ih - Pronalaženje sebe na studijama i u Otporu - Rad na Metropolisu i civilno služenje vojnog roka na Univerzijadi - Po čemu Nikola pamti svoje MTV iskustvo? - Zašto je MTV Adria bio neuspešan projekat? - Koliko je teško stvarati nove izvođače? - Po čemu je Kontra drugačija od ostalih izdavačkih kuća? - Čime se Kontra sve bavi? - Fenomen zvani Buč Kesidi - Kako Universal Music deluje u ovom regionu? - Šta je ideja Zadužbine Milana Mladenovića?

Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 Latin Music Series My first show as a concert promoter was in 1975. I booked the great Cuban singer, songwriter, bandleader Frank Grillo RIPwho the world knew as Machito abd his Afro Cubans with Gaciela on lead vocals. Machito came with his 21 Piece Orchestra. What a sound when you hear this music live. Sad part was that big bands disappeared in the late 70' and Tito Puente RIP formed his Tito Puente Latin Jazz Ensemble with amazing musicians who began touring in 1979 and worked until April , 2000 before his untimely passing May 31, 2000. Eddie Rodriguez a 40 + year Latin Music Industry professional sending greetings from Puerto Rico. His story is based on firsthand experience as a record label executive and the inequality that still exists today to sign, market and promote Black Latino artists in the US Spanish Market (except for some Reggaeton artists) by multi national recording companies Latin divisions (Universal Music Group, Sony Music and Warner Music).Ernesto Antonio "Tito" Puente, Jr

She even has a background in criminology, which I didn't know until we spoke… She reached out a few months ago, after having listened to a bunch of episodes, and said she loved the show, and had some clients that were probably incels. She didn't offer to come on as a guest, I asked her — something just told me she'd be amazing… she said she'd think about it. We talked again, a couple weeks later, she agreed, and we set a date!_________________________________________ "This Year's Girl" by Elvis Costello. 1978.

About Dan Gilmore Dan Gilmore is a recognized thought leader in WMS, with experience prior to his role at Softeon as the founder of Supply Chain Digest, CMO at RedPrairie (now BlueYonder) and as lead WMS analyst at META Group (later acquired by Gartner).

Our extremely broad suite of supply chain solutions – provided on a single, integrated services-based technology platform – has three anchors: the Softeon Warehouse Management System (WMS), Warehouse Execution System (WES), and Distributed Order Management (DOM) system Key Takeaways: Understanding WMS in the Cloud In the podcast interview, Joe and Dan discuss WMS in the cloud. Dan Gilmore is the CMO of Softeon, a global provider of innovative supply chain solutions that delivers supply chain success – every time. Gartner research has a very favorable opinion of Softeon's WMS. Check out the research here: Gartner Critical Capabilities for Warehouse Management Systems 2022 WMS stands for warehouse management system, which is a set of policies and processes intended to organize the work of a warehouse or distribution center, and ensure that the facility can operate efficiently and effectively. Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. Cloud computing has many advantages and technology leaders like Softeon architect their solutions to work seamlessly with the cloud. The WMS market was slow to move to the cloud, but now that some of the original concerns are recognized as overblown, the industry is embracing cloud computing. Advantages of cloud computing: Lower Cost Implementations: More Rapid Time-to-Value: Lower Upfront Costs vs licence: Much Lower Internal IT Costs Over Time. Don't want to be IT infrastructure business Portability Softeon's broad suite of supply chain solutions improve customer's operations and enhance their own customer's satisfaction and experience.

Michael Lopez is a graphic designer whose work can be found at www.postlopez.com. Originally from San Diego, now living in Los Angeles with their cartoonist spouse Rachel Dukes and 2 cats. They are Chicanx and non-binary. Michael Lopez also shared the below post on LinkedIn and it went viral. This is his first and only interview about the situation and we are proud that he decided to share his story on our platform. I'm a queer brown person and I was fired during Pride month for speaking up in defense of abortion rights at Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) (a subsidiary of Universal Music Group). Last Friday, like countless other folks, I was devastated by the news of the supreme court's attack on abortion rights. Paired with the flood of anti-queer and anti-trans legislation, it's been hard to process how company's expect us to be productive while our rights are being stripped away. Especially when our company has been donating to several of these politicians (link in comments). Every Friday, one of my tasks was to process reports for upcoming releases. This is an email list that goes out to 275 people. I don't know who's on it, I just knew it was the email list with the most people that I had access to. So I sent the following message: Subject line: UMe Schedules Message: I didn't do them today. I'm in mourning due to the attack on people with uteruses in the US. Federally guaranteed access to abortion is gone. Vivendi and Universal Music Group must stop donating to anti-abortion, anti-queer and anti-trans politicians. Politicians like Marsha Blackburn, Ken Buck, Victoria Spartz, etc. Or expect more unproductive days. Yours in fury, -Michael Lopez The immediate aftermath was several supportive emails from other co-workers and a manager calling to tell me to take the rest of the day off. I appreciate the love from my coworkers, and I figured, based on management's response, there was a good possibility I might be fired as a result. But I was proud of letting allies know that our company has been donating to these politicians. Around 9:30-ish today, I got a surprise Zoom video chat with HR. I was being let go for (paraphrasing) "Not doing your job, disrupting the day of 275 people and poor judgement." I was told to log out and that a courier would be there to pick up my laptop from my apartment within the hour. Anticipating that I'd get shut out of my computer very soon, I sent a follow up to the email list: Hey ya'll, Just got fired for this email from Friday, so they're letting you know where they stand on employees speaking out on politicians that support marginalization for folks like me. A brown queer person terminated during Pride month speaking in support of abortion rights. Seems like that's exactly what America is all about right now. Peace out, -Michael Lopez I don't speak for my former company. I speak for myself and employees that will suffer under these discriminatory laws. Their actions today, their silence on Friday are indicative of their motivations. Profit at all costs. Solidarity, only if it's profitable. And above all of that is maintaining the status quo and saying fuck you to the working class. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/quientueres/support
