DMDC 2022 with Andrea Woodard

We're going to get slightly "hyper-local" with this conversation about the Greater Des Moines (Iowa) Partnership and the upcoming business gathering in Washington, D.C. While, on the surface, this might seem to be about Central Iowa the issues raised by Andrea Woodard the Senior Vice President for Government Relations and Public Policy for the Partnership should resonate with every person listening to this conversation.

A Personal Effectiveness Clinic -DISC with Liz Cooney

Not long ago I was invited to take part in one of the more than fifty Tero Clinics created by Tero International.

The Business News Headlines 17 March 2022

The economic data and the jobs data today were surprising even in light of what is going on in Ukraine and with oil. Also, stick around because for the interview you're going to learn about the amazing story of Kemin Industries that has grown from a very modest start up to a family owned multi-national. There is so much to unpack and we've done that.  Meanwhile in the news:

  • Unemployment rolls are the smallest in 52 years;
  • Several other economic data points moved the markets;
  • Oil prices climbed above $100 a barrel again;
  • The sad Russian Oligarch who doesn't know how to live;
  • Texas Republicans are mad at Citigroup and why;
  • Amazon now owns a fabled movie studio;
  • And, the company may have to re-hire a fired worker;
  • Starbucks to phase out paper cups;
  • The Minnesota governor wants to give back tax money;
  • The Wall Street Report
  • And, we know what you're really doing on Tuesday at work.

Those stories and a conversation with global communications director Lauren Burt about Kemin Industries. Over the past sixty-one years this company has grown from very humble beginnings (like in the living room of a modest home) to a multi-national corporation that is still family owned but responsible for global food supplies. You can hear that amazing story...here

Kemin a Company That Transforms Lives

We're going to take you on a journey that spans sixty-one years and do a deep dive into a family owned company that has become a multi-national giant. Here you'll learn about the very humble beginnings of Kemin Industries as the Nelson Family created (in their modest home) something called, Pig Lure to aid the world of pork production. Now, sixty-one years later, Kemin does business world-wide creating products that support the lives of pets to production animals while always keeping their mission centered on servant leadership. With me is Lauren Burt the global communications director who will help you better understand what the past two years have been like and what the company hopes to bring to the world...tomorrow.
