Podcast Disscussion

In our most recent Consumer Behavior class, we spent most of the time discussing an episode of the Waking Up podcast talking about trends in the marketing industry.

The main thing discussed was security, We discussed the issue of passwords and as someone who cycles between passwords, I was shocked to see how some of us in the class are very concerned almost to the point of paranoia about security. I have no worry about security and I have no personal information online besides my name. We also talked about online presence and how anything you post online can be used against you in the future.

We Talked about censorship especially government censorship, and students from other countries talked about their experiences with censorship and some of what was discussed will stick with me.

We talked about advertising targeting venerable individuals and we debated whether or not it was ethical or strategic marketing. I personally believe that it is incredibly effective but I do believe it is unethical.

The main takeaway from this discussion is to be willing for your point of view to change. closedmindedness really prevents you from learning. Although my behavior may not have changed I learned about others views and can understand what they see. I can see the issue of identity theft and why people are concerned. whether it be about security or the issue of governments affecting the people’s beliefs, or venerability marketing peoples voices should be heard.


Thought Leader

A thought leader is someone whos views are seen as authoritative and influential. Naturally there are many thought leaders out their but I chose Lance Secretan.

Lance Secretan is a British Author, philosopher, Former CEO, Poet, Professor, Columnist, Child  actor,and athlete. The reason I chose him is that he has done so much in his life and has a large amount of knowledge that he uses to inspire others and hope he inspires myself and help me inspire others.

Lance has been named one of the top 30 most influential leadership experts in the world. He guides leadership teams and inspires them to transform their industries. He was born in the UK.

Lance does not have the largest online presence. He major place to find him is his website where you can purchase his books and follow his blog. He also has a Linkedin page where you can learn about him and read his plethora of articles and about his history as a teacher and an entrepreneur.

Things that I would like to know about Lance is his motivation for helping inspire people and if a event may have changed his life and started him on the path of author in inspiration speaker. I would also like to know what he thinks it truly means to be a a leader in this modern world.Image result for lance secretan
