Global Empowerment For Women With Fortune 500 & Great Causes
This past Wednesday night in Manhattan, New York the likes of many powerful female leaders attended and spoke at the Women’s Empowerment Summit. With faces such as Frances Hesselbin, the CEO of the Girl Scouts for 14 years, plus other women who have dealt with presidents and Fortune 500 brands, this was a masterful event. When we were personally invited by the host Yao Huang to help provide our network’s reach and connections to inspired other female entrepreneurs we were more than ready. With around 300 people in attendance the event was a major success and brought some of the world’s top leaders and newcomers together in a fun filled and educational event.
Not only was this event inspirational and great for interconnecting amazing people this event was the hot spot to be. Networking went on before and after the events where entrepreneurs were able to have doors open up right in front of them. To give you a better idea of how high-profile these women giving advice were, one of the other speakers such as Christine Comaford has been referred to by bill gates as “super high bandwidth” and Bill Clinton has even given her props for “fostering American entrepreneurship”. Having helped over 700 of the Fortune 1000 brands Christine is a great person to now be in contact with for many of these female entrepreneurs to grow their brands and impact.
Both GGN Co-Founders including myself and my partner Rick Jeffries were able to meet amazing leaders and people from major brands including NBC Universal, Fast Company, and even the United Nations. We were able to offer them our network as a way to promote their great causes they support and brands they are working on. Here at GGN we are all about mobilizing resources to increase the impact for what we and others believe in, this summit gave us the ability to provide further reach and global marketing tools to those who could benefit. -Josh Bois, Co-Founder Global Good Networks
Carole Hyatt also spoke at this event who was responsible for famous shows such as The Muppets where she was stepped on and made to look only as the Co-Producer rather the official producer of the show due to the fact that she was a women. Stories like this show how hard she has worked and not gotten the credit she deserved, yet she was still able to become a bestselling author and an international motivational speaker in addition to running Fortune 500 consulting groups.
We are proud to be able to have attended and supported this event. The future is up to us and you and we are excited to connect great people, brands, and causes all together to make a lasting and measurable impact on the world.
Signed, Josh Bois Co-Founder Global Good Networks
Change Is Capturing the World
The pace of change in today’s world is astonishing. It is not just technology advances that are bringing this about but instant worldwide communications have certainly made a great contribution. It is the speed with which ideas can spread and encourage changes in policy that had previously been so slow to implement. Not everyone buys into this new world but the younger generation generally does; it is the generation that is tomorrow’s leadership.
No one can be certain about how the coming years will develop but there seems little chance that there will be a reversal of momentum. Businesses are emerging every day, driven by the enthusiasm of youth and meeting the demands of that generation. Many people want to use their talents to express themselves in a commercial way rather than relying on joining an established firm and pursuing a career there.
Some things in society are not changing and they include everyone’s wish to be happy. The headline news is often bad; there seems little space for the heart warming stories people would prefer to hear about or read in the media. There are many happy events and couples still set out in adult life together intent upon raising a family and helping their children develop into responsible adults.
People meet, fall in love and get engaged much the same as they always did. They look forward to their big day when they confirm their relationship in front of family and friends. It is a day that produces a lifetime of memories but one that also needs photographs and a video to retain as a memento. Wedding photography is a skill and requires imagination both from the photographer and the happy couple. They may know what they want but will also be open to ideas.
The final album needs to achieve more than images. It needs to demonstrate the joy of the occasion. Some of the photos may be taken in a studio with a Lastolite Collapsible Background to focus totally on the couple themselves. Others however will be taken with family and friends in the shots.
Sometimes a black and white photograph can look stunning, a silhouette perhaps in a location that almost seems to be more important than the couple themselves. Everyone is looking for something a little bit different in their wedding album. Modern cameras provide the means but it is often imagination that creates the results that achieve something special.
A fresh approach
Often the best photographers and indeed the best fashion designers set out with the career in mind and bring a fresh approach to the business. There are plenty of people willing to support talent and enthusiasm and certainly the means to get a message out through the Internet and Social Media. It is certainly the first place that many people go if they want goods and services.
Their talents are only part of the story. They have to create visibility; that visibility is an audience that my want to employ them for their special day. With the growth of a portfolio the job becomes easier as they will have plenty of evidence of their talents.
The days when a photographer would sit in a high street location and wait for people to come through the door have largely gone. Self promotion is far easier today and fairly inexpensive. Good news can travel very quickly if a budding photographer can create it. After all people like to hear good news as a contrast to what tends to make the daily headlines. Using the World Wide Web has become second nature to the younger generations and increasingly to everyone else. The change has come and it will continue.
5 Future car technologies that truly have a chance
Technology is advancing at a rapid rate across all industries. One of the most exciting developments (outside of the medical field) is the work that is being dreamt up on automobiles. Things like self-driving cars, cars that run off electricity, or even cars that run off of used canola oil; the possibilities are endless.
Today we are narrowing down the top 5 dream scenarios for the automobile industry. Scenarios that have not yet broken into the mainstream media, but have realistic chances of becoming something the average consumer can use in the near future.
Self Driving Cars
This is not a new idea, but this dream can definitely come into fruition within the next decade. For quite a while, TV shows and movies have displayed self driving cars in futuristic setingss, but it has never been offered as a legitimate driving option until recently.
Google has already developed self driving cars that have driven over 200,000 miles on public highways and roads. Even large automobile companies, like GM (General Motors), have begun testing with self driving vehicles’. The time saved waiting in traffic is estimated to be cut at least in half with self driving cars (less accidents as well as optimal route integration). That little perk alone should make this dream worth wishing for.
Airbags are nothing new in cars. Yet ever since airbags begun deploying inside of cars, more and more airbags get added into the vehicle every year. What started off as just an airbag for the front two passengers, has now developed into side airbags, knee air bags, even airbags that go off underneath our seat during an accident.
It was only a matter of time before people tried to use airbags to slow a car down. Mercedes has been working on deploying airbags from beneath the car whenever the cars brakes are hit hard suddenly. The job of the airbags would be to push the car upwards, which should stop the dipping motion during hard breaking. This technology has yet to be used in any of Mercedes current cars, but cannot be many years away.
Energy Storing Car Body Panels
With so many car manufactures heading towards making hybrid models, the next step is to be able to charge these cars as easily as possible. Manufactures are looking into finding ways that the body of the car actually charges the batteries within them. My first thought was solar powered, but this seems to be going more along the lines of maintaining the batteries energy and using it more efficiently during the times the car is not turned on. With 9 leading manufactures testing this out in Europe, I would expect some more information on this very soon.
Communicating with other Cars
V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) communication is something that everyone dreams of. V2V would work by sending wireless signals from one car to another, warning of you of a possible collision; maybe even hitting the brakes for you. This technology could not only decrease the amount of accidents on the road, but it could change the way we drive all together.
Augmented Reality Dashboard
The fifth and final piece of technology that we could see developed in the near future is augmented reality dashboards. The easiest way to think of this is to imagine what Robocop sees out of his eyes. How he can analyze objects, how he can have information shown how close or far objects are, the threat level, etc… BMW is leading the way in this research, with some of their cars already equipped with the most basic versions of this.
With all of these advancements right on the horizon, it looks like things that were once considered fantasy; could be arriving at a dealership near you sooner than expected. I’m not sure how this will affect auto insurance companies, but as a consumer; I cannot wait!
