Show Notes

If you think you see patterns in the universe that no one else is seeing, it may be your time to write that book or start that company - according to David Meerman Scott. David is a marketing strategist, entrepreneur, investor, and advisor to emerging companies, and bestselling author of 12 books, including "Fanocracy" and now in its eighth edition, "The New Rules of Marketing & PR."

David has had a fascinating path to his current success.  From being a “gaijin” (foreign) male model in Tokyo to being the last person to photograph Bob Marley in concert, David is big into surfing, seeing live rock shows (he has kept a spreadsheet since age 15!), and NASA.  

As a professional coach and speaker, he teaches people how to use new real-time strategies to spread ideas, influence minds, and build businesses.  In this episode, I’ll talk with David about his theories and beliefs around passion, connection, and intensity, and his latest views on digital marketing.  From the first social network created by the Grateful Dead to the transparent marketing strategies of businesses like Grain Surfboards and NASA moon travel, David has a lot to say about marketing your business and how it has changed through the years.

11. The Power of Purpose

  The Power of Purpose. Simon Neylan is an experienced executive who is currently the General Manager of Alinta Apparel, as well as the Founder and Director of two start up businesses, Jangler and Schoolink.  It is fair to say Simon is a guy who likes to keep himself busy! I first met Simon a couple of years back. I remember it so clearly. We sat in a cafe in our local area and Simon shared with me some of his story and how he was developing a mobile app that he hoped would revolutionise the act of giving. Ever since, he is someone I am proud to call a friend. Now, I don’t know why I didn’t explore it at the time, but I never asked why he was so passionate about what he was doing. It wasn’t until a conversation we had a couple of months back that he shared a deeper meaning to his work. Sharing that story and understanding how his purpose drives everything he does, is the focus of our conversation today.     If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...

71. The Culture of Ageism

Have you ever declined to interview a candidate because they were over 40?  Are you in the over 40 age group? Have you yourself been the victim of ageism in your job search?   In this episode, I’m joined by Toby Marshall, an “Ageism Warrior.”  As Toby tells it in his frank and open manner, “Ageism is JUST DUMB.”  From debunking four big myths about hiring mature workers, to the “hidden” discrimination behind those noble-sounding mission and vision statements on company walls, Toby fights daily to sound the alarm about age discrimination.  Ageism costs our communities major money – in Australia, the figure is somewhere between $600M to $1B annually in costs including lost taxpayers, paying out unemployment benefits, and even healthcare costs, as unemployed or underemployed people, can be depressed and in turn have a host of other health-related problems. Take some time to look at your own prejudices against older individuals you encounter– at work, in your community, in the media- you might not even realize you are an ageist! Discussion Points When did you become so interested in fighting ageism? Can you define ageism for us? What is going through people’s heads when they refuse to hire mature candidates? Have you yourself experienced ageism? What do mature employees offer that younger people do not? Debunking the 4 main myths of ageism: Poor health/more sick days Afraid of, or unable to grasp technology ...
