    The Future of Brand/Consumer Connections (ft. Paul Krasinski)

    The Future of Brand/Consumer Connections (ft. Paul Krasinski)

    At the end of the day, so much of society is focused on consumerism– but how do you make the right decisions about what to sell and how to sell it if you don’t understand consumers in a meaningful way? 
    We’re excited to be talking to my personal favorite Kraskinski brother. Prior to co-founding Epicenter Experience, Paul Krasinski served as an SVP at SessionM, acquired by Mastercard, and at Arbitron, later acquired by Nielsen. Paul's developed and refined a deep understanding for the consumer perspective, developed insight services and the industry relationships required to revolutionize how brands and consumers connect.

    Consumer Privacy, Finance, and User Data (ft. Brian Mandelbaum, Klover)

    Consumer Privacy, Finance, and User Data (ft. Brian Mandelbaum, Klover)

    Consumer privacy is such a big topic these days. There’s so much evidence that users really do care about their personal information—but there’s also data that suggests that people don’t care assuming they’re getting something in return for giving something up.
    To dive into this topic and more, we sat down with Brian Mandelbaum, CEO of Klover, a leading fintech app that raised $60 million last year and provides high-level analytics of buyer behavior by capturing users’ spending data and compensating them for it. We talk to Brian  about the perception around legacy payday advance firms, whether we need federal privacy policies in place similar to Europe’s GDPR, and how consumer spending and behavior is changing in the wake of today’s inflationary environment.

    Creating Connections in Divisive Times (ft. author & Stanford professor, Geoff Cohen)

    Creating Connections in Divisive Times (ft. author & Stanford professor, Geoff Cohen)

    We live in enormously divisive times. Divisions based on class, politics, race, religion, gender, and nationality are erupting around the globe. The consequences of not having a sense of belonging range from political strife to illness to underperformance at work and in the classroom. In 2020, 40% of each political party said that supporters of the opposition party were “downright evil.” In 2019, hate crimes reached a 10-year high in the U.S. 
    Americans have become disconnected from their communities. About one in five Americans suffers from chronic loneliness, especially young adults. How did we end up so divided and alienated? Why is our sense of belonging so undermined? What if there were a set of science-backed techniques for navigating modern social life that could help us overcome our differences, create empathy, and forge lasting connections across divides?
    To tackle all of this, I wanted to turn to Stanford University Professor Geoffrey L. Cohen. His new book BELONGING: The Science of Creating Connection and Bridging Divides is out September 13, and available to pre-order now.
