Denise invited me to be a guest on her podcast Collaborative IQ, which is a regular social media, business and marketing program that she hosts out of San Francisco.

The topic was one of my favourites - 'Retaining Ownership of Your Personal Data':

Taking Ownership of Your Personal Data

(Also available on iTunes and Stitcher)

We talked about:

  • Your data is a form of valuable currency, you shouldn’t just give it away.
  • Your data as an enabler and form of empowerment.
  • How can you benefit from the insights your own data can reveal to you about yourself?
  • When you control your own data, brands will be forced into offering you a better CX (customer experience).
  • The emergence of personal terms and conditions of data exchange – set by YOU.
  • How do you get younger generations like Gen Z to care about their data?
  • How does this fit into the BYOD (bring your own device) scenario at the workplace?
  • And much, MUCH more…!

Thanks Denise! It was great to be connect whilst on opposite sides of the world and I am looking forward to seeing you in San Francisco.
