Published last year in Agile , Apps , Banking , CX - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Interviewing banking execs is HARD!  Kyle had to co-sign on the interview!

Perhaps one of the last places we would expect to see successful disruption is at a large American bank.  Rebecca Wooters is a Citibank Executive who explained why that thinking was wrong.  And like MOST good explanations for success, the motivations lie with caring about customer experience.  Who Knew?  Citibank Knew.  Listen to Rebecca break down customer focus, leadership and agility.  Mix it all together…WIN!

Episode 22 – Brought to you by China, the letter “N” and Winnie the Pooh.

Published last year in AI , Cybercrime , Facebook , Security - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  When China bans the letter “N”, they become…you know… “Chia”.  It’s just a pet name.

When China locks down speech, they don’t mess around.  They go right after seditious concepts….like Winnie the Poo, uh…. and the Letter “N”.  I don’t think President XI could get his nose caught in a honey jar, but he’s trying …. hard!  We don’t see the likeness…really!
