This is the show notes for the podcast of The Carmen Murray Show which will empower you, fuel your creativity and inspire innovation.  We will get you Future Fit and open your mind and help turn knowledge into magic.  

As we commemorate Women’s Month and pay a tribute to all the women, I wanted to dedicate this month to all of our #fearlesswomen in South Africa by giving you four exceptional masterclasses by 4 fearless women to inspire you with their message of hope.

We are witnessing the “EVE"olution of women and the power of change.  The #unsteareotyping of society, and people embracing diversity and inclusion. Read more here:

In this episode, we are privileged to receive a 20-minute masterclass from Jenna Clifford, a renowned jeweler, and appointed SA Ambassodar and torchbearer for the United Nations Millennium Development Goal 3.  Since then she has been active in her own capacity to empower women and gender equality.  I myself have been privileged to be on the receiving end of her guidance in my own career.

Brain Dump by John Vlismas

Brain Dump on how to work a room by John Vlismas

This is the show notes for the season finale of the WITEE Chatterbots show which aims to empower you, fuel your creativity and inspire innovation.  We will get you Future Fit and open your mind and help turn knowledge into magic.  Watch the video of the season finale with John Vlismas here:

In this episode, I speak to John Vlismas, a top comedian in South Africa.  For over 20 years John has deftly walked the line between underground, alternative and mainstream comedy.  He is well known for his outspoken and observational humour.   I think John as a real gift to be unapologetic, understand and comment on political, social and economic affairs.  

We learn to discover that John is a super smart guy and has earned his stripes in the business world and making some huge strides in the corporate and creative world.  He is not just a funny guy

John and I talk about industries being disrupted, including the monolithic power of DSTV.  Watch Netflix in action with the recent online ad that’s going viral in SA.

John says your brand is not your agility and he gives us things to think about when building a brand.  We talk to John about ignorance, resonance, dissonance, as the important factors to advance and evolve yourself.

We refer back to the John Sanei interview Purpose over Profit discussion and the recent announcement by Warren Buffet who talks about companies who need to stop chasing quarterly targets.

John and I talk about the negative energy in the air, politics, polarisation and economic constraint and how to trade through the badness.

We unpack the secrets to work a room, whether you are a presenting to stakeholders, talking at a conference or meeting a client.  

John gives us an exclusive insight into Brain ump, what inspired it and the power of the mind after his dad’s stroke.  We refer to my stroke of insight by Jill Bolte.  This is a must watch for everyone who wants to understand the brain.

in tradition, we conclude the show by playing our 60 second 10 question game with John and get a few laughs with her witty responses.

These are the show note for the podcast on the #WITEE Chatterbots Show ( Women in Tech Empowering Everyone) which aims to empower you by interviewing a wide range of remarkable and thought-provoking guests to discover as we navigate through the constant change around us.

In this episode, I speak to Elizabeth de Stadler a plain language and privacy law expert.  She is a disruptive force of nature in privacy law and gives a fresh perspective to compliance issues.

She is the Founding Director of Novation Consulting, which is a quirky company that specialises in all things consumer law, the designing and delivering of training.  She is also IAB SA Head of Chairperson of the regulatory affair council.

Elizabeth prides herself for being slightly out there and bringing a fresh perspective to compliance issues.  She has a Masters ( cum laude- the nerd) in Consumer Law.  Elizabeth met Paul in 2011 and joined Esselaar Attorneys ( she is still a senior associate at the firm).  In 2013 they founded Novation Consulting together.  Elizabeth is a bit of a nerd.  She is the editor of the Consumer Law Review and wrote a Guide to the Protection of Personal Information Act with Paul.  She is also the author of Consumer Law Unlocked, a co-author of Consumer Law Unlocked, a co-author of the hefty Commentary to the Consumer Protection Act and wrote chapters on the Consumer Protection Act in The Law of Contract in South Africa and The Law of Commerce in South Africa.  She is currently working with Liezl van Zyl from Stellenbosch University Language Centre on Plain Language legal drafting, which will be published in 2018.  Elizabeth loves Lego, Sneakers, Zombies and white wine.  She hates comic sans font, sweet potato, and most other attorneys.  She is allergic to suits and öffice shoes" because of years she worked at Webber Wentzel.  She is very scared of moths.  It is a thing- read about it.

Elizabeth and I touched base on the recent action of the information regulator to summon an urgent meeting with Liberty to get an understanding of how its data was breached by hackers.  The fact that POPIA is not in effect does not stop the regulator to take action says Elizabeth.

 Elizabeth gives me an insight when POPIA will take effect and also everything that went down once GDPR  went into full force.  Misinformation leads to organizations being completely paralyzed.

We talk about the impact of acquiring data, enriching data and profiling of data and how this impacts direct marketing and promotions.

Elizabeth debunks some of the myths on the GDPR and the POPIA.

We refer to the show I had with Alfred Adriaan on WITEE Chatterbots Talking about some of the discussions that happened on this show.

We go through promotion and competition scenarios to discuss the pitfalls of privacy law.

Then in tradition, we conclude the show by playing our 60 second 10 question Game with Elizabeth and get a few laughs with her witty responses.
