We're back with a new episode of the podcast, I had a fantastic conversation with Allan Cohen, a strategy consultant I had the pleasure of hearing as a keynote speaker at Landmark's recent Conference for Global Transformation in beautiful Monterey, California. I loved the two sessions I had the chance of checking out and thought it would be great to talk about business consulting with Allan and the kind of creativity involved in determining and solving a variety of business challenges of the kind he has experience with. Little did I know our conversation would take us into talking about artificial intelligence, self driving vehicles, and complex adaptive systems.
I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did, and if you do please subscribe to the podcast, take the time to write a rating or a review on your favourite podcast app as it helps more people discover and enjoy the show. Alternatively, you can go and tell a friend whatever traditional way you would choose to do so. Thanks!
