Episode 4 (Nov 16) Crowdsourcing Q&A and George Bradt, CEO Connection

Crowsdsourcing Q&A is the subject this week for our expert panel.

Our guest is George Bradt, who offers a unique perspective on transformational leadership based on his own senior line management and his global consulting experience.  George is a Principal of the CEO Connection and Managing Director of PrimeGenesis, the executive onboarding and transition acceleration group he founded in 2002.  Since then, George and PrimeGenesis have reduced the risk of failure for executives that they have worked moving into new roles — from 40% to 10% – based on their own team, tools and perspective on delivering better results faster.   He has written three books on the subject, including the The New Leader’s 100-Day Action Plan: How to Take Charge, Build Your Team, and Get Immediate Results(for hiring managers). George is eager to share his ideas with us.

We talked about the new Droid phone on the last show and it’s been amazing to watch the hub-bub over this new entry into the market. A lot of it really isn’t over the phone at all,no matter how cool it is, but the rivalry between ATT and Verizon. We all knew Verizon wasn’t getting the iPhone when they started the negative anti-iPhone ads but who knew they were coming up with another “iPhone killer”?

I’m pretty sure it’s not an iPhone killer, but I hope it wakes ATT up that people are thinking of migrating for the network and even the iPhone can’t hold them back.
Here’s a comparison video of the phones and speed.

Do you have an iPhone? Coveting the new Droid or the Verizon network? Let’s hear it.

Olympic blogging?

Are you a top social media/marketing blogger?  If you are — or know someone who is — Andrew Ballenthin is looking for you.

His Community Marketing Blog is holding Blog-Off II.  The Blog-Off brings talented bloggers together in a friendly but serious competition.  Andrew has lined up an all star panel of judges and is offering some amazing prizes.  One of those prizes will be a featured interview right here on GameChanging – our BlogTalkRadio show!

Andrew is one of the most innovative marketing guys you will ever meet. His initial Blog Off was not only a lot of fun, but the community that he started with it has really hung together. Now he’s got his sites set on a much bigger competition called Blog Off II.

Check this out at Community Marketing Blog and watch for Andrew as guest on our November 23rd show.  As well as being one of the most interesting marketing bloggers out there right now, he’s also the author of a new book called Stop Chasing Chickens: Start Making Money from Social Media (a book on monetizing social media from a marketing perspective)

Nov 9th Show – Links and Notes

Great show this week.  Some of the things that we talked about on the show:

Big news was the introduction of the Droid by Verizon Wireless.   No, it’s not R2D2 – it’s a new smart phone from Motorola.

Our guest this evening was Rakesh Antala, CEO of Crederity

Honorable mention tonight – we talked about Jim Carrey being one of the early adopters.   See Crederity in action on his twitter account at

Not mentioned on the show, but worth a look is Jim Carrey’s website at

Carrey’s site is an epic that brings back memories of Monty Python.  It’s well work checking out. Allan Hoving said he’s spent hours on this site.  If he’s not off in time for our editorial meeting for next week’s show we may have to do an intervention.

Jim Love made mention of Metcalfe’s Law.  He also talked about the recent Facebook Virus Alert

Andrew Jenkins from our Linked In group Hubba Social Media Consultants dropped in.  Andrew has a neat little piece on his website with some good comments on using Social Media.   Check it out.  You never know who is going to turn up from our audience.    Hey, next week it could be you!

Janet Fouts talked about links and Twitter.  Andrew Jenkins noted that TweetDeck lets you check out links on Twitter.

Speaking of Janet – check out her blog at    Great little piece there on Thesis – the WordPress theme.  There’s a short video there which shows the power this new theme to do custom designs.  If you don’t know about WordPress and what it can do, you need to check this out.

Not related to the show at all, but I just had to note it — Mashable is reporting that the twitter sensation S**t My Dad Says Gets CBS Deal.  Here’s proof that you can indeed make money in social media, if you want to be truly innovative and entertaining.

What did I miss?  And don’t let broken links break your heart.  Leave us a comment and we’ll add it or fix it.
