    Making the Internet a Better Place

    Making the Internet a Better Place

    If you had an idea for a potentially multi-billion dollar business, would you have the courage to make it free for the entire world to use?
    Because that’s exactly what Matt Mullenweg, CEO and founder of WordPress did. 
    After many twists and turns, today the company has nearly 2,000 employees and a valuation of $7 billion. And WordPress powers more than 40% of the websites on the internet. 
     
    So why did Matt decide to go against the status quo and make his platform free for all users? And why, almost two decades ago, did Matt decide that it was so important that the internet was about sharing and freedom and bringing people together to collaborate online?

Rich authentic content

Vesna interviews a variety of personalities and this makes her podcast interesting and original. I like the fact that she interviews personality with different background, stories and nationalities.

Super interesting

From today’s podcast: ’people are looking for content’ and that is what Vesna’s podcast is delivering, with every guest.
Vesna has invited many interesting guests to her program over the years and has a wonderful way to get them speaking of truly important topics. Love to listen Corporate Unplugged.

Informative and thoughtful - a must for my daily commute

Corporate Unplugged, hosted by masterful Vesna Lucca, explores a wide range of topics that all share one common denominator - socially responsible and purposeful corporate life. You will meet a careful selection of knowledgeable and impressive guests including such prominent figures as Simon Sinek and Seth Godin as well as many experienced entrepreneurs, CEOs, researchers and academics. I am especially impressed by all the women who share their insights and experiences about fulfilment at work, meaningful leadership, midlife career change, parenthood and many others.
