Over the last year, I have amassed a great source of business, marketing and leadership podcasts that
I listen to on a regular basis which I have found to be extremely helpful in stimulating ideas, provoking
thought and grounding me on core principles of marketing and business management. I would like to share
one podcast that I have found to be among the best. It is produced by Stanford University and is called
the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Lecture Series.
On a weekly basis during the spring, fall, winter and summer semesters, Stanford brings in some of
their most famous alumni and successful business men and women across a variety of industry segments
(technology, media,banking/finance, venture capital, bio tech, etc.) to speak to students in entrepreneurial
studies on their experiences in building and leading companies, in some cases from 'idea' to muti million
and billion dollar companies. Yahoo, Google, HP are a few of the highlighted companies.
The podcast is about an hour long and consists of a 30-45 min presentation by the guest speaker (extremely
easy to follow via audio) and ends with open Q&A with the live audience.
Some of my best ideas (influence relations, leadership, and business development) have been stimulated
by the stories and experiences of the sage business leaders. I highly recommend to anyone with interest in
business and entrepreneurship to subscribe to this podcast. You can find information about it at
Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Lecture Series.
