#14: How to make technology personal - With Penny Power OBE

First Imagine going through this pandemic without the internet. It’s like a story from a dystopian movie. But we do have the internet and it’s enabled you to talk to your family and see their faces, order food straight to your door or work collaboratively with your work colleagues. We’re in a world where the internet has brought people together through tribes but also created echo chambers. These are the thoughts of Penny Power OBE, co-founder of Ecademy, the first social media platform for business established in 1998. Penny gives us a glimpse into the rise and fall of a tech business and how she desperately tried to cling on to her belief that business should be personal. Penny never let go of this belief and has now authored a book, Business is Personal. We also talk about how technology has been used in a cold unfriendly way and that it doesn’t have to be that way.

So here we go, Penny Power.

#18: What's the secret to building a social media following according to a 100k+ influencer - With Paul Brown

Do you want the secrets to build your own 100,000 followers on social media?Well our guest has 40,000 followers on TikTok, 27,000 on Linkedin, 20,000 on Twitter and has even worked with the likes of Heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua. Our guest, Paul Brown, is an influencer in his own right and founder of Baked Bean Media, a social media and video production company. Paul gives some incredibly useful insights and actionable tips that even I’ve been inspired to do myself. Paul’s approach is in my opinion that of a viral hunter, he’s always ready, tapped into the networks and waiting to maximise the opportunity to create the next piece of content that rides a social media wave.This was a refreshingly different podcast episode that I think will give you an alternative perspective of social media.
