Listened to the episode with Carly Stein. Love to intersection of entrepreneurs and environmental stewardship. Great ideas, great business, great for the earth.
Excellent story telling
I began listening to and reading Dr Finkelstein last April as I was doing research for a book on faculty professional development and talent development. The Sydcast continues this great teaching with wonderful stories. You’ll love Sydney’s vision for a great story and the natural relevance the stories to our lives in business, management, education, and other fields.
