    183 Lucy Vozza - The Changing Business Dress Code

    183 Lucy Vozza - The Changing Business Dress Code

    In 1975, John T Molloy wrote “Dress for Success.” A couple of years later, he followed it with “Dress for Success for Women.” As a result, a generation of professionals had guidelines and rules to follow when it came to the business dress code. In 2022 that code is changing like never before. In fact, there is no dress code today. Professionals have the opportunity to define new ways to dress comfortably while projecting an image of professionalism. Lucy Vozza believes clothing and the vibe you send to others are linked. After spending 17 years in sales with biotech companies such as Baxter, Regeneron and Genentech, she recently transition to a leadership role at BeiGene. She joins us to discuss today's evolving dress code and what you should consider when getting dressed for work.

    182 Ram Ganeshan - Supply Chain in 2022

    182 Ram Ganeshan - Supply Chain in 2022

    Last summer, William & Mary Business Professor Ram Ganeshan joined us on the podcast to talk about where supply chains stood in 2021. A year ago we were experiencing lumber shortages, new furniture was challenging to find, and chlorine for the backyard swimming pool was in short supply. Fast-forward one year to today and we’re faced with new supply chain issues. Some we could never have imagined a year ago. For example, the baby formula shortage continues, semiconductors are in short supply, and the Russian-Ukranian war has caused a number of critical shortages affecting people all over the world. Professor Ganeshan joins us again to talk about today’s supply chain issues, how they began, and what might be ahead for customers, companies, and countries across the globe.

Business and more

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
