SPOS #520 - Illuminate With Nancy Duarte And Patti Sanchez

Welcome to episode #520 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. One of the world's foremost thinkers on the subject of better communications and presentations is Nancy Duarte. She has been on the show countless times. If you ever need to really study and deep dive into what makes a truly persuasive presentation, you won't find better business books than Slide:ology, Resonate, HBR Guide To Persuasive Presentations, Slidedocs, and her latest, Illuminate. Illuminate was co-written with Patti Sanchez, who also joins us this week to discuss the mechanics behind what a great story is, how a business leader should sell that story and, ultimately, how to best package a presentation to get your entire team (and customers) aligned and on your side. This is not about building a better deck or the function of good presentation structure. This is a dialogue about making your communications truly connect. If you have never checked out their business, Duarte, you should. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #519 - Invisible Influence With Jonah Berger

Welcome to episode #519 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Nothing makes me happier than when people that I deeply admire and respect come out with a new book. I don't know about you, but I love everything about the deep dive that a rich and enjoyable business book has to offer. One of the thinkers that never lets me down is Jonah Berger. Berger is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and bestselling author of Contagious - Why Things Catch On and, most recently, Invisible Influence - The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior. In his new book, Berger looks at the subtle and secret influences that impact our choices. It's not what you think (the standard persuasion type of fare), and his research will not only surprise you, but have a direct impact on how your marketing, advertising and communications can be that much more effective. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #516 - Innovation Culture With Michael Schrage

Welcome to episode #516 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. When it comes to innovation, one of the most provocative voices in the field is Michael Schrage. It may seem obvious to us now that innovation is when consumer's accept new products and services, but this wasn't always a commonly-held belief (until Michael brought it forward). Ever hear of rapid-prototyping? What about simulations and modelling to improve ROI on innovation investments? All of this thinking was brought into our world by Michael. A research fellow at the MIT Sloan School's Center for Digital Business, author of books like The Innovator's Hypothesis, Who Do You Want Your Customers To Become?, Serious Play, Shared Minds and more, he is a legendary business, innovation, technology and marketing mind. It has been said that no one knows more about how to maximize return on investment from innovation processes than Michael Schrage. Personally, I think he's one of the most fascinating people thinking about business today. Enjoy the conversation...
