    Rebuilding the House of Capitalism

    Rebuilding the House of Capitalism

    “Capitalism is the most powerful tool in our toolbelt, but a hammer can be used to make or destroy a house. So how do you choose to wield it?”. So says Unreasonable Group founder Daniel Epstein in this conversation with Claire Carroll, director of the Human Insights Lab at The Dock.
    In this episode, Claire and Daniel discuss the ethics of progress, the Future of Work, regenerative capitalism, mining introversion, empathetic meetings and more.
    The episode is introduced by Laurence Mackin and produced by Sinead O’Shea.

    Is Sustainability A Privilege?

    Is Sustainability A Privilege?

    In recent weeks some of the biggest companies in the world, including Accenture, have pledged to put the planet ahead of profit.
    But just how feasible are such commitments? Can big business really redefine itself or is this really a marketing strategy? And. Can they really make a difference?
    In this edition of Dock Pod from The Dock, Accenture’s global R and D hub, we’re going to ask if sustainability in the business world can truly take place.
    DockPod is presented by Laurence Mackin and Sinead O’Shea. It is produced by Sinead O’Shea.

    A smarter look inside the home

    A smarter look inside the home

    How much time are you spending at home and what are you doing when you’re there? Have we changed our idea of home and has technology anything to do with it? And where are the business opportunities for companies in the home space, and how comfortable are consumers with them? In this episode of the DockPod, coming to you from Accenture's flagship R&D and global innovation centre in Dublin, we dig into new research on the smart home and its surprising conclusions about why, despite a huge amount of home technology, are homes remain largely tech free. Our guests on this episode include Accenture’s Rachel Earley, who has authored a new report for The Dock called Putting the Human First in the Future Home; Architect, designer and artist Roisin Murphy, who has more insight than nearly anyone about what we get up to behind our hall doors; And Justin Cullen, who is the founding partner of Jolt Esquire and is chairperson of Maximum Media.
