She doesn’t look sharp. There is also much more that has transpired since this original clip.
Interesting look at the workings of a Senate committee.
First, they need to rethink the metrics they’re tracking. There’s this assumption that the more data you have, the better your marketing will be. But you have to ask: Is your data measuring the things that drive growth? – Merkle’s Chief Growth Officer, Adam Lavelle,
Not looking specifically at marketing, but rather business data gathering in general, Lavelle’s observation is spot on. How many businesses collect data simply for data’s sake and because the boss or business owner said to do it that way. How many monthly business reports are created simply as busy work for employees? How many of those reports are read and acted upon? How many of those reports are simply filed away with the appropriate check box marked, that the report was completed and filed.
While on active duty in the U.S. Navy there were always a plethora of monthly reports due. Some critical and others, not so much. We would complete all the reports and send off the ones, historically known for being critical, while keeping the other reports filed in the office. More often than not many of the reports were never followed up upon by the requestor. If the report was followed up on, we’d acknowledge the request and send off the report. It was a clear and determined way to designate just how important or not requests were from those higher up the food chain.
Business owners who can’t, don’t or won’t, enroll their employees in the basics and background of data gathering, alienate those employees from the business and the data gathering becomes only busy work.
How to endear yourself to the voting public. How would any candidate every think that a statement like this would be beneficial to their cause?

What is the blockchain? If you don’t know, you should; if you do, chances are you still need some clarification on how it actually works. Don Tapscott is here to help, demystifying this world-changing, trust-building technology which, he says, represents nothing less than the second generation of the internet and holds the potential to transform money, business, government and society.
