#15 - Factory vs luthier.. what's the real difference? Pt.2 with guest John Page
Weekly Wednesday Q&A with Juha Ruokangas
Factory manufactured - or luthier made? What's the real difference? Does it matter to the player? In the previous broadcast William "Grit" Laskin and I got the wheel turning - and this week I'll continue with another living legend to explore this fascinating topic.This week - the 2nd episode of my 'factory vs luthier' series - I'll dive in to deep end with John Page, who worked over 2 decades for Fender, 12 years of which as a co-founder and the head of the Fender Custom Shop. Fast forwarding to 2006, John Page Guitars was born. A heavy duty professional who has experienced first hand both sides of our story: the factory - and the hand made.I hope these conversations will shed light on the fundamental differences as well as similarities of factory made guitars in relation to instruments crafted by luthiers - and whether those differences make any meaningful difference to the player, or not.A little disclaimer - this broadcast is targeted to all of you who enjoy guitars, be it guitarists, guitar enthusiasts or collectors alike! The program is not about the guitars we make in my company Ruokangas Guitars. I'm doing this for you, who are interested in learning more about your instrument. The brand or monetary value of your guitar makes no difference whatsoever.Talk to you soon,Juha

Managing by Influence vs. Authority w/ Linda Logan & John Page
Flip the Switch by EngageMint
Working in the sports & entertainment industry, there are few events that you can host without the support of other people/organizations. For most all other events, you need that support to execute all the facets that make an event successful. Whether it be working with a company that provides temporary labor for your ushers, or working with surrounding hotels who impact your guest's overall experience, often you must work with partners not under your direct control. If there isn’t leverage in the relationship, how do you get everyone to march to the same drumbeat? How do you lead through influence instead of power? To explore this question, we welcome Linda Logan and John Page to the show.Linda Logan is the Executive Director of Columbus Sports Commission which she helped to create in 2002. A trailblazer in sports business, Linda has led the Sport Commission to book over 600 events generating over half a billion in visitor spending. Some of the highlights include NCAA men’s basketball tournaments, Presidential debates, UN summits, and the 2018 Women’s Final Four in Columbus. She’s one of the most well respected sports commission execs in the country.John Page, our second guest, works closely with Linda as the General Manager of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. He is a 20 year SMG veteran, the last 6 of which he has been in Columbus. He manages the venue’s daily operations, stakeholder relationships and business development. One of the biggest projects he’s led in recent years was the guiding the facility through its award-winning 22-month, $140 million expansion and renovation. On this episode of Flip the Switch, we really focus on the topic of leading with influence, instead of power. Both of our guests have to work with hundreds of leaders and businesses outside of their control to put on the events that they host, so I wanted to explore some of the strategies and tactics they use to be successful.
John Page has spent spent a lifetime on Moreton Bay, following his father into life as a commercial fisher. He quite literally depends on what he observes and understands of life in the Bay. John shared with me a bit of history around the local seafood industry (he's also currently the Dep. Environment Rep for the Moreton Bay Seafood Industry Association), how our tastes have changed, and what changes he's seen in the Bay over the last few decades. We also talked a little about what it's like to be a commercial fisher, and how people respond to commercial operators - both on the water and when they are your next-door neighbour! Check the blog for more on commercial fishing, and what wild-caught fishers offer our community (PS - it's not just fish!)
John Page is a governance expert at BoardWorks. He is also the writer of a major research report "True to Label" looking at how value is measured in the non-profit sector in Aotearoa New Zealand. He has many years of governance experience in a variety of roles and in the arts which we discuss in the interview. Now in his role he works as a consultant supporting governing boards and directors in their leadership roles. https://boardworksinternational.com/about.php True to Label report: https://sportnz.org.nz/managing-sport/search-for-a-resource/news/true-to-label This is the 90th episode - for others visit www.seeds.nz "BoardWorks International is a long-established, leading board effectiveness consultancy with but one purpose - to support governing boards and directors in delivering outstanding and inherently satisfying boardroom leadership."
