On This Episode
On the latest episode, Hunter hosts Nancy Giordano, a strategic futurist whose accomplished career began in the advertising and branding space. Throughout this work, Nancy experienced each notable technology revolution – from the Internet to mobile to social media. During each of these disruptive phases, she saw technology’s massive impact on both branding and communication.
Nancy brought her forward-looking mindset to the podcast to give us a peek into what’s to come. While it’s easy to recognize improvements and advancements in tech, Nancy sees the vitality of placing humans at the center of data and technology. She acknowledges the companies that are getting things right – those that effectively and inclusively distribute value with each decision they make. While building business models, she says that it’s important for companies to think outside of their business and deliberate on the long-term well-being of society as well.
Trust is a key player in the future of decision-making, and Nancy believes that more consumers will question whether a company is using their data with their best interest in mind. By using data to empower and serve consumers, people will be able to access the best solution. With the giant youth population coming into the workforce, Nancy is looking forward to seeing their impact through their new way of thinking. Despite what she has seen already, she believes that there is much more disruption to come.
