The company also has a reach that encompasses 60+ million people globally and an extensive library of individual profile attributes collected through surveys. I invited Jackie Lorch, VP, Global Knowledge Management of Dynata onto the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to talk about the global research around data privacy. The mistrust between consumers and companies is at an all-time high, according to new data by Dynata. The Data Privacy & Trust report surveyed consumers in nine countries, including the US, to get their perspectives on data transparency by companies, the value exchange, familiarity and privacy. Topline findings include the facts that 70 percent of consumers agree that companies have been dishonest about how personal data is used. 80 percent of consumers would be more willing to share data if brands were more transparent about their plans for that data. But only 27 percent would feel more comfortable sharing data if “valuable benefits” were offered in exchange. We further discuss this research and implications to brands, why we need to fundamentally change how we think and talk about transparency and “the value exchange.” We also explore and where we’re at in our evolution around data ownership and privacy.

In a featured partner series of Citrix Ready podcasts, I explore the technology integrations that Citrix has with its partners. In this series, I invite guests from Citrix and their partners to spend some time with me to share how they are solving real-world problems for businesses. Not on their own but by working together. In this episode of the Citrix Ready Podcast series, I explore how Citrix and Apps2Digital are working together to solve real-world problems for businesses. I hear how customers are leveraging Apps2Digital to provide insights to admins on the key utilization of the apps and the tasks users perform within. I explore how Apps2Digital helps customers with their applications in Citrix environments. App performance, rationalization, packaging, and deployment are just a few topics we discuss. From a Citrix standpoint, I also learn more about how this works with micro apps and saas apps, where users can only perform tasks of that app specific to their role. Nigel Woods is a Technical Evangelist specializing in all aspects of End User Computing, Desktop Virtualisation, Cloud Computing, Desktop Transformation, and Application Delivery. With over 20 years of EUC experience and involved in start-up to sale of the first Citrix based DAAS in Europe and then starting up EMEA for FSLogix to completion with the acquisition by Microsoft, Nigel now heads up Business Development for Apps2Digital for EMEA.

40% of the jobs that exist today will not exist in 10 years’ time. Fuelled by technology, change is coming at a rate that exceeds our ability to adapt. What got past generations here, won’t get the next to where they want to be. Rapid technological change means we must all keep learning. Our ability to adapt can be measured by our adaptability quotient (AQ) which is becoming a big talking point for those serious about their future career success. In today's episode of Tech Talks Daily, I want to learn more about AQ, or adaptability quotient which is the first-ever holistic metric of adaptability in the workplace. At Adaptai, their aim is to not only quantify and provide insight into AQ but also to help individuals and organizations to improve their ability to adapt in the fastest period of change in human history via their future coaching and digital training programs. They measure adaptability across three core dimensions (ACE): Ability (your adaptability skills), your Character (the innate aspects of Self that determine the ways in which you may approach adapting), and Environment (how your environment can help or hinder your adaption). Together with twelve sub-dimensions, such as Grit, Resilience, Mindset, and Learning Drive, they can give an accurate picture of where you are in terms of your AQ journey. AQai are working collaboratively with experts, universities, professors, leaders in psychology, people analytics, and human behaviour to build a robust and accurate measure of human adaptability in the workplace. Ross Thornley, co-founder of Adaptai joins me to talk about they are making a difference. I learn why people are moving from EQ to AQ and why it’s the key to the future of work.
GetApp is an online resource for businesses exploring software products. Its comparison shopping platform and free interactive tools help buyers compare software products side-by-side and navigate the world of software purchasing. GetApp features software research, insights, trends, and validated user reviews, giving buyers the tools they need to make informed decisions for their organization. GetApp is also a Gartner company. But it was their State of Analytics in HR report that caught my eye. GetApp recommends that employers can set their teams up for success in 2020 by auditing HR processes and then using analytics to improve these processes and reviewing embedded analytics features to see what tools are already at the team’s disposal. Employers can also use data analytics to improve staff retention. For example, some employers may find that there is a correlation between longer commute times and the likelihood to quit. To prevent staff from leaving, employers can have proactive conversations with employees and offer more flexible working options. Using analytics to spot these trends could be very beneficial for companies, as employee turnover can cost a 100-person business up to $2.6 million per year. Lauren Maffeo, an associate principal analyst at GetApp, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to talk about all this and much more. Lauren covers the impact of emerging tech like AI and blockchain on small and midsize business owners. She has also been cited by sources such as Information Management, TechTarget, CIO Online, DevOps Digest, The Atlantic, Entrepreneur, and Inc.com. In 2017, Lauren was named to The Drum’s 50 Under 30 list of women worth watching in digital. That same year, she helped organize Women Startup Challenge Europe, which was the continent’s largest venture capital competition for women-led startups. Lauren has served as a mentor for Girls in Technology’s Maryland chapter, and DCA Live included her in its 2018 list of “The NEW Power Women of Tech”. Lauren was also shortlisted for the Future Stars of Tech Award in AI and Machine Learning by Information Age in 2019.    
HeyHuman is the transformative communications agency, specializing in neuromarketing, brand, content, social and experiential. ​They create Unusual Everyday™ Ideas that connect with people and change behaviours to kick-start brand and business growth. Before they launched HeyHuman, their journey began by thinking about the behaviours of successful Human Brands and how they echoed the behaviours of people who they connect really well with in real life. They then looked at these human brand behaviours as the most important ones for them as a group of people. The company now helps brands grow by thinking differently about people, brands, and marketing. We make this happen through their MindKind™ approach and Unusual Everyday™ Ideas. ​ Our clients include Diageo, Merlin Entertainments, Mondelez, SlimFast, Natures Menu, and Typhoo. I invited Aoife McGuinness, Neuroscience Consultant at HeyHuman, onto the podcast. Aoife is a neuroscience consultant based between London and Berlin. Working in the intersection between art and science, she analyses how the brain processes communications at HeyHuman and creates multisensory experiences with electronic music collective, Universe of Tang. I learn more about how brands can use neuroscience to adapt their storytelling. We also discuss the value of multisensory experiences in marketing and the impact of neuroscience on social media strategy. However, in an over digitalized world, we also talk about how brands can become more 'human.'
Described as the "Airbnb of Luggage," Stasher is a sharing economy solution for storage. They realized that people don't want to drag their suitcases, backpacks, or more around a city when they just have a few hours before they have to depart. They created a global network of hotels and stores with extra space where travellers can find affordable, convenient storage for their belongings. Secured with the same standards as a hotel check-in, Stasher partners with leading brands like Premier Inn, Accor & Hotels.com to provide storage worldwide.

Pick the most convenient location to store your bags and book easily online from just £6, €5, or $5 per item for up to 24 hours. Each bag is also fully insured up to £1000. Book online now and get instant confirmation. How did it all start? People were always asking to store their stuff at Anthony's home near King's Cross. When Matt asked, Anthony replied, "Sure, but I'm charging you for it." This joke was the lightbulb moment. On 21 September 2015, they incorporated CityStasher Ltd (now Stasher). Fast forward to 2020, and the travel tech startup secured a $2.5 million funding round and was featured in TechCrunch, Forbes, and Yahoo. I invited Jacob Wedderburn-Day, CEO & Co-Founder at Stasher onto the podcast. Jacob oversees operations, finance, and strategy at Stasher. Prior to co-founding the startup in 2015, he graduated BA Economics & Management from Oxford University and MSc Economics from UCL. He's passionate about entrepreneurship, economics, and football.
In May of 2020, bitcoin (BTC) will see its next halving. But what will the reduction of the reward for successfully mining a block mean to its value? Speculation has probably played a part in already pushing the price over the $10,000 price barrier. But hopefully, we have all learned a few lessons, and people won't make the same mistakes as a few years ago. In a world where doing your own research is paramount, I have been a big fan of Robert Beadles for some time due to his open and honest approach. Robert is the co-founder and president of Monarch, a crypto wallet with 340,000 users.

Robert is also the host of Crypto Beadles, a YouTube channel with nearly 90,000 subscribers, where he educates his audience about blockchain technology and crypto-assets. Robert invites crypto projects on to his platform to learn more about it and let the audience decide whether it is of value or not. In many ways, he feels like a kindred spirit, so I invited him onto the Tech Talks Daily podcast. As Bitcoin and the crypto markets experience an early 2020 rally, many investors are eager to learn the best strategies for digital asset investing and trading. Robert shares his insights on what investors should know about investing in BTC, ETH, and other top assets. We also discuss how to evaluate potential crypto investments, their risks/upsides, and how crypto investing compares to traditional trading.

SyncDog challenges the status quo and changes the game on how organizations empower their mobile workforce. The company prides itself on enabling companies to reset expectations on how employees can get work done on the go. Although almost all companies today have employees who want or need the ability to work outside the four walls of the organization, the current mobile security solutions being utilized today still have them tethered to their laptop and office – They still utter the phrase “I’ll get to that once I’m back at my desk” far too often. Your employees should be able to do their work from wherever they are. SyncDog combines of a suite of office applications (email, calendar, contacts, office editor, file share, location services, messaging, etc.) along with an architecture that protects and secures your mobile workforce through FIPS 140-2, AES 256 bit encryption that finally removes the technological struggle of having to choose between increased security or increased productivity. SyncDog recently announced their unrivaled support for small businesses and franchises by reducing the complexity and costs of outfitting and enabling employees with mobile devices. Onboarding new employees can be especially challenging for small companies as they often lack the time, resources, and manpower required to piece together the data and apps employees need to get the job done and then load them onto a mobile device that’s familiar to the end-user. SyncDog CRO, Brian Egenrieder, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to talk about all this and much more. He is a veteran sales strategist and leader of more than 25 years in enterprise software. His experience includes building the sales processes around software solutions, enterprise applications, and SaaS/Cloud computing to the Fortune 500 Commercial Market and U.S. Federal Government. Brian also works closely with CEO Jonas Gyllensvaan to build on existing traction in Banking, Government, and Healthcare.  
As technology continues to advance, the workplace will need to adapt to meet the new expectations of the workforce. The usage of traditional IT models is causing regulatory hurdles for many financial firms. As a result, many financial service firms have begun their quest for upgrading technical infrastructure, both at the backend and the front-end. DevOps brings security along throughout the process chain, monitoring errors and failures at the very instance of the occurrence, making this an increasingly essential tool for financial service organizations. Dinesh Venugopal, President at Mphasis, joins me on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to talk about this subject and much more. As President, and Member of the Executive Council, Dinesh is the global head for Direct-Core Business and Digital across industry verticals.

The new-age digital-first companies like Amazons and Googles of the world are moving along a mile a minute. Innovating on modern software delivery practices and deploying software updates rapidly to take their business forward at incredible speeds and agility has become the norm. We talk about how a new standard and how high expectations for service that can be tough for other businesses & industries to match up on, particularly ones in highly regulated businesses such as financial services. While financial services continue expanding their digital capabilities, the ability to deliver new software-based services efficiently becomes exceptionally critical. However, we explore how DevOps is changing the game and how the financial services industry has not only played catch up but has been an industry-leading the change. I learn how it is speeding up innovation and how adopting modern software delivery practices, including agile, continuous delivery (CD), and DevOps.
