Diversity and Inclusion in Marketing and Entrepreneurship [Wil Shelton]

Diversity and Inclusion in Marketing and Entrepreneurship [Wil Shelton]

October 20, 2020

Wil Shelton believes in connecting multi-cultural businesses. Today we will get some insights from Wil on what were the keys to creating an environment that would see a community built and benefiting from integrated marketing.

With a network with over 100,000 African American salons and barbershop nationwide and the ability to reach over 100 million consumers annually, Shelton feels that it's important for brands to have multicultural divisions or arms because most brands are setting up multicultural departments.

“Multi-Cultural marketing is becoming more and more an important part of the business for the hair industry," he said. "Brands are taking advantage of this and they are seeing it in their bottom line.”

Emotional Intelligence, Resilience & Human Authenticity [Felipe Oliveira]

September 24, 2020

If one thing has been shown from the year COVID-19 arrived on the scene is that it has tested our core beliefs. Whether in business or personal areas, we have had to analyse what is important in life.

Alongside this has been the concern for many regarding family, friends and our own capacity to ride the constant waves of change. In this episode that is valuable for all of us but especially for men, Felipe Oliveira will talk to Andrew Pitchford about how we hold and guide ourselves through these times.

Today's topic includes a look at Emotional Intelligence, Emotional Resiliance and having Human Authenticity. Its a look at how being 'real' enables you to make wise choices suited to your circumstances rather than hiding behind a brave mask. Oh, and not 'that' kind of mask.
