As many of you know, we’re gradually expanding MIPtalk to include a range of new features including video. We continue to revise the program to make sure that it suits the needs and interests of our audience.
When we first launched our show in early 2009 it took some time to “find our groove’. Listener feedback helped us improve dramatically. The same is true of our new foray into video. As you’ll see in the videos we’ve posted from the 2010 Innovation and Humanity Summit, the immediacy of video creates a different experience than what we’ve done thus far. And while we’re incredibly excited about the journey ahead, we still want to hear from you. Tell us what you think; what’s working, what’s not and what should we be doing differently? All feedback is greatly appreciated and don’t worry about sparing our feelings.
There’s much more to come so stay tuned and thanks for your continued support.

Greetings to all of you out there in the MIPtalk Nation (with apologies to Stephen Colbert). We’ve been teasing some exciting developments about the show these past few weeks and although the image accompanying this post might lead you to believe that we’ve landed the mother of all interviews with Bill Gates, we’re not there quite yet (although there should be no doubt that such opportunities are on the horizon). What we do have to share is equally as exciting since it represents an important milestone in the journey we’ve taken thus far.2 comments
This week’s guest is Glenn Llopis. He is the prototype of the new entrepreneur whose success lies in steadfast character, passion for life and an ability to marry social responsibility with ground-breaking products and services. He combines a celebrated UCLA education with fast-tracked years at the Gallo Wine Company and Sunkist where he became the youngest senior manager in the company’s 100 year history. Leading the successful turnaround of Sunkist’s juice beverage division opened the door for his next endeavor, the vice president of the $1 billion Norway Seafood Company at only 30 years old.5 comments
