    Smart Cities - Ladders of Opportunities

    Smart Cities - Ladders of Opportunities

    The Smart City Movement has become a passion of mine. This passion started when I read the book Smart Cities - Smart Future by Mike Barlow and Cornelia Levy-Bencheton.

    This passion was FUELED the day I met Jeff Sheffield. Jeff is the Director of the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization, but he is also the BEST convener and facilitator that I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

    Jeff and I became convinced that through the Smart North Florida initiative - all boats could rise and Ladders of Opportunities could be created.

    This journey has caused us to find the right partners. Two of those partners are the United Way of Northeast Florida and Pelocity. Learn how Jeff Winkler is helping to transform the Basic Needs (211) program of Northeast Florida and how Stephen Pollan's platform is helping the underserved communities discover what Ladders of Opportunities are available to them.

    Reopening America - Buyer Beware

    Reopening America - Buyer Beware

    It was originally my FULL intention to make Bootlegged Innovations on VoiceAmerica a COVID-19 free zone. To have one hour a week that I could escape with amazing guests and talk about INNOVATION.

    Then we began to see solutions for "Reopening America" where organizations are primarily responding in one of 4 ways:

    1 - Completely leaving it up to their workforce as to how they feel they should protect themselves

    2 - Going with solutions that create a false sense of security as largely either an uneducated or PR move.

    3 - Going with a PPE only approach, but with varying degrees of enforcement

    4 - A comprehensive approach that enforces the rules of engagement and monitors compliance in the workplace - less than 1%.

    In this episode we will explore what needs to be in a comprehensive response and the real life examples of the challenges that many are face with reopening.

    Join my my guest John Tsang of HPE and Matias Klein of Kognition for Episode 6 - Reopening America - Buyer Beware

    According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) - US Manufacturers is already in the midst of a Skills Crisis that will just continue to grow over the next decade. Vacant positions that cost real GDP growth, longer time to fill, ever increasing mismatch of worker skills versus business need are the new normal.

    The Brookings Institution published a findings in December 2019 that laid out the 6 Step End to End RESKILLING Journey.

    Join me and my 3 guests tackle this Journey from 3 very unique perspectives - social responsibility, employer responsibility and personal responsibility.

    For far too long a singular metric Overall Equipment Effectiveness has been overused, overblown, improperly applied to determine "Hidden capacity" - often leaving millions of dollars on the table and no clear insight or call to action.

    Our guests put in systems and governance that provide unparalleled visibility, transparency, and actionable AI insights.
