John Hickenlooper as Mayor of Denver, 2004 Mayor Hickenlooper Talks About the Future and the Past, June 2004
enclosure-voice 1/18/11 - "Leaders are made not born!" This statement elicits the questions, What is it then, that makes leaders? Is there a leadership formula? If we follow the rules can we all be leaders? Being a leader is not an accomplishment. It is an ongoing process. It's a process that capitalizes on strengths and overcomes challenges with a powerful energy. Mayor John Hickenlooper, is the quintessential example of converting a challenge into an opportunity and then onto success. During this “Profile of a Leader” interview you’ll hear how he achieves and how he was motivated to be a winner. It’s a one-of-a-kind story you won’t hear somewhere else. Larry and Pat Nelson conducted this interview in the Mayor's office one year after he was elected and during a time he was throwing baseballs with Governor Owens. You'll hear the Mayor in his own words explain why he is the way he is..

Brad Feld – Profile of a Leader: November 2004
Brad Feld, Foundry Group  Photo taken in 2004 1/18/11 - Everything is changing. All the rules are changing…or are they? SOFTBANK Venture Capital became Mobius Venture Capital. Brad Feld cut his hair (unlike Samson, he did not lost his strength). Are these changes symbolic, superficial or just a sign of our changing times? Leadership in changing times has been elusive to so many organizations… great leadership that is. Some say leaders have learned from their experience. We’ve heard people proudly point out they have 18 years experience… In truth, have they merely had one experience 18 times? Yes, leaders do learn from experience, but it’s the distillation of all the good and challenging events that makes the difference. Brad’s mother and father had a great impact on him…personally and professionally. Along the way in the business world (starting at age 15 in Brad’s case) there were others that also influenced his beliefs and values. He learned from some tough lessons as well as from his successes. Brad shares some of his "learning experiences" in this provocative interview. Brad also offers some advice to entrepreneurs. We should all listen to this guy. He shares some golden nuggets, his career turning point, and much, much more. This could be the next step in your career, maybe a turning point. Listen now, as Larry & Pat Nelson of w3w3 Talk Radio unveil some pages in Brad Feld’s life.

Lt. Col. 
        Edward Vaughan, USAF Relentless execution, that's what it takes
enclosure-voice 950_ 1/11/11 - Imagine 50 days in Antarctica, what would it be like? Larry talked with Lt. Col. Edward Vaughan, USAF, who is working with the Joint Task Force Support Forces Antarctica (you may be more familiar with the name "Operation Deep Freeze"), this is the military's mission to support the National Science Foundation's objectives in Antarctica. As Ed explains, the entrepreneurial and business implications are awesome. Before this interview Larry had heard so much about Lt. Col. Edward Vaughan, the awards he'd won, different things he' done etc., and in his research, Larry decided to check Wikipedia - under disruptive solutions process Ed is right there in the first paragraph. Ed said, "Yes. The military is obviously a big bureaucracy, but it has missions to perform around the world that are, in my opinion, entrepreneurial." He goes on to explain, "The disruptive solutions process is the way that we go about tapping into that entrepreneurial spirit ... And solving problems in a very commonsense way, and in other cases, leveraging technology that we have, that we didn't have before. At the end of the day the goal is that we are more effective." Larry points out that the US DOD presented the Entrepreneurial Approach for Safety Award to Ed. and he was inducted into the US Air Force Safety Hall of Fame, sighting some of these entrepreneurial approaches. "Awards like that" Ed said, "while I'm honored to receive those, what they do is sort of validate this approach, that there is room for innovation inside a bureaucracy." Ed was very involved in helping pilots see and avoid collisions. Mid air collisions are obviously devastating, there's loss of life, tremendous loss of property. With military planes, especially fighter jets, the pilots have the option of ejecting. Ed also helped develop, is the Wingman Program. In this case it was suicide among military members. The DOD does a fantastic job...listen, there's much more...

Breaking down the barriers: Academics; Business; Civic
Chris Pelley, Capital Investment Management; and 
        Dennis Whittle, Global Giving Organization enclosure-voice 948_ 1/4/11- We're coming to you from the December ACG luncheon with Chris Pelley (Capital Investment Management Company) and Dennis Whittle (Global Giving), who are working to raise the consciousness around social enterprise and social entrepreneurship. Dennis is the founder of Global Giving and he was gracious in his efforts to come in and visit six universities and with ACG for their monthly luncheon, on this tour. Chris said he learned about Dennis Whittle when he read the book, Being Generous, and he'd heard about Global Giving and Dennis through Sherry Law whose daughter had been involved with Global Giving. Dennis was a big gun (as Chris says) at the World Bank for a number of years. Dennis mentioned that one of the themes during this visit has been 'breaking down boundaries' and Chris has been talking about collaboration across the three sectors, the ABCs of the academics, the business sector and civic groups. I really believe that kind of collaboration across sectors, and breaking down the boundaries is key to making progress with many of society's greatest challenges. That is what Global Giving is all about and that's what I'm seeing here in Denver and ACG, it's very encouraging. If you go to GlobalGiving.org you can choose from projects in almost 100 countries, in any cause or theme that you have interest in. Then you can read about the project and decide...

Alan Beaulieu, President & CEO, Economist Institute 
        Trend Research Business trends for the next 12 months
enclosure-voice 953_ 1/18/11 - Larry's first question, "What do you see for the next 12 months?, business trend-wise..." Keynote speaker at the ACG Denver business luncheon, Alan Beaulieu provided a fast summation that went like this..."Mild recovery, Slow job growth, Housing market going nowhere in a hurry. We're going to muddle along, but we'll look better than a lot of nations, so the dollar should be fine." Chet Marino and ACG Denver brought Alan Beaulieu, President of the Economist Institute Trend Research, back for an expert's view of the year ahead. He covered a variety of topics including local and national trends as well as some fun topics like taxes, interest rates and a general outlook for the US economy and the stock market. Larry asked, "What do you see financially, for those trying to raise money, mergers, what are some of the challenges and choices?" Alan replied, "The good news is the banking industry is beginning to loosen up and they're lowering their credit standards some, they have plenty of cash. The big inhibitor to lending right now, believe it or not, is the federal government. The regulators are saying no, no, no, and the banks are looking for reasons to say yes. As the Christopher Dodd/Barney Frank legislation settles down and regulations are written, the idea is that banks will figure it out, regulators will figure it out, money will start flowing again and that should make for a very healthy 2012. We'll get through 2011 and probably have a great 2012. It's nice... companies are growing again, companies are hiring again, and so we're going to enter into a more relaxed, as far as stress levels go, but I do want your listeners to know this..." There's much more, listen now...

Social networking and social gaming winners
David Asseoff, Adperioenclosure-voice 952_ 1/18/11 - In this '50 Colorado Companies to Watch' interview we were surprised to hear Adperio, one of the winners started 16 years ago. Larry Interviewed David Asseoff, President & CEO, Adperio which is very involved with social networking and social gaming. Adperio transitioned to the Internet in '98 when they launched their first online venture called MemoLink.com - an online rewards and loyalty program. "When online gaming got hot about four years ago", David says, "we saw an opportunity to work with these gamers and monetize their applications by inserting advertising into their gaming programs." that's how they got into social media, which coincides with the rise and growth of Facebook and of course so many of these games that millions of Americans are playing every day, and it's only getting bigger both here in the U.S. and abroad. Larry understands that, but wondered if bigger companies are embracing this as part of their branding, their business online. Of course the answer was 'very much so'. A few years ago many Fortune 1000 companies didn't understand the potential or the reach of this advertising vehicle/medium, casual gaming within social media. But today you have many very large brands like 7 Eleven, McDonalds, Green Giant, various insurance companies and verticals that have been up in TV, radio and print for years, but have now adopted this online vehicle and found its potency. Adperio works with large companies like Netflix and Discover Card, and help them acquire new customers online through these channels, such as casual gaming. Adperio is a Colorado privately held company, with about 50 employees, recognized as a fast growing company - but the differentiating points... One is they offer full transparency to their clients. What's interesting is the average gamer is a 43 year old female with a household income of $50 to $75,000...listen, there's more about this CCTW winning company...

James Norrod, President and CEO, Infinite Power Solutions, 
    Inc. and winner of the 50 Colorado Companies to Watch 2010 Always hire people better than you are
enclosure-voice 949_ 1/11/11 - We are with James Norrod, President and CEO, Infinite Power Solutions (IPS), winner of the Colorado 50 Companies to Watch, 2010. We are beginning the New Year and Larry's first question was regarding the overall future of business. The word that sums it up in for James is 'improvement'."Unemployment numbers are coming down. I think business is improving, the economy is improving. The thing I've noticed is the investors seem to be letting go of their money a little better. The VC's and private equity world seem to be investing in companies like Infinite Power Solutions and others, where two years ago they really held back in putting money into companies like ours. So I think the general environment is getting better and improving." Over the last five years IPS has raised $65 million. "We believe the cash in the company now is sufficient to do what we want to do going forward." They have some great investors in the company, "In fact the last round, all of the current investors participated. But we brought in a few new ones like Metronic, Generation Investment Management, which is Al Gore's investment company out of the UK, so some great new investors have come into the company and we are very excited about the future and those investors. Wondering what Infinite Power Solutions does? They are the leader in thin film solid state rechargeable batteries. They make a very small, paper thin battery that is used in applications such as medical devices, smart cards/biometric cards, used in wireless sensors in certain industrial applications where changing batteries is a very difficult thing to do. When asked for advice for business, things to do or to avoid, James replied, "I'm old fashioned in my answer to this. It's all about the people. As a CEO coming into a business like ours, I say, we are only as good as the team that we have. So our goal is to hire the very best people and then give them the opportunity to do their job and do it well. That's what I do personally and I am very proud of the team we have at IPS. My advice for new CEO's is always hire people better than you are."When asked for advice for business, things to do or to avoid, James replied, "I'm old fashioned in my answer to this.
