These podcasts are so insightful and interesting. I look forward to each one! Loved the one with Dr. Tharoor especially.
This is PURE GOLD
Network Capital podcasts are some of the best out there. The topics and mentors/leaders are some of the most successful in their respective areas of interest. The insights are incredible and the topics are carefully chosen.. the community is fantastic and each member brings an unique insight and loads of learning through its platform. I am excited to hear the next in series :) there’s always something incredible to reflect upon after each of these interviews.. thanks for envisioning this :)
Its amazing. Love the content. It really makes you think on two fronts - a) How can I use the skills of my profession and channel it into novel ways; b) How I myself can grow as a professional by understanding I can incorporate skill sets that are not necessarily associated with my line of work.
