Data is the New Oil with Franco Patano
Data is often referred to as the “new oil” when referring to the digital economy. Just like raw oil, raw data isn’t valuable in and of itself, but rather the value is created when it’s processed and refined. When it comes to large Enterprises and Corporations, more often than not they are sitting on top of vast amounts of raw data from their business processes that is sitting there untapped and unrealized. This is an advantage that most startups do not have…thus giving advantages to those that can unlock the data under their feet.
In this podcast, I'm talking to Franco Patano, a Senior Solutions Architect from Databricks on the topic of untapped data.

Grassroots Learning Community
Very often companies have some sort of learning and continuing education program in place but it’s at a very high level and very broad for the organization. Sometimes I’ve found that starting a grassroots effort to bring together a smaller group within the organization has been an excellent way to both enhance your career options and be seen as a thought leader or change agent as well as to foster a culture of learning and sharing.
In this podcast, I’m going to talk about the approach I’ve taken at 2 different companies using the same game plan to put things into motion.

Investable Idea Success with Paul Szews
Very often there is no shortage of good ideas within an organization. Employees at every level have great ideas for innovation, disruption, and digital transformation. However, more often than not - these ideas die on the vine because of the lack of ability to “sell” the idea internally and clearly communicate why the organization should invest in the opportunity.
In this podcast, I’m talking to Paul Szews about how to get an idea from concept to a positive investment outcome.

Corporate Innovation with Cody Littlewood
In this episode I'm speaking with Cody Littlewood on the topic of corporate innovation.
Cody is the founder and Chairman of Codelitt, a software design and engineering firm with a focus on digital strategy to help corporations innovate with the speed and efficiency of a startup.
I think it was a fun and wide ranging conversation centered around how Enterprises and large organizations typically struggle with innovation or disruption and how they can start to change their overall way of thinking about software and technology.
