229 — Lawrence Petretti

Podcast Summary:

Larry is one of those guys you can hang out and talk with forever. He is a walking fountain of wisdom with such rich stories and experiences that you find yourself drawn in to hear more. I really enjoyed interviewing Larry. He shares some very interesting points about:

227 — Tom Goodwin

Podcast Summary:

If you have spent an even a little bit of time on LinkedIn, you have seen Tom Goodwin. Tom has been awarded “#1 Voice in Marketing” on LinkedIn 2017 & 2018 with over 550,000 followers. He is a self-described marketing provocateur who asks great questions about how tech is enhancing and detracting from our lives. He is sort of an “anti-guru” who really captures the attention of any audience he is in front of.

He’s a bright mind who asks brilliant questions. I asked him to come on the podcast because I wanted to get his take on how he sees leadership changing as tech becomes a more integrated part of our lives. And, he did not disappoint. Great interview with a thought leader who I expect will be with us for many years to come.
