1406: Using Ethical Networking to Grow Your Business with Reid Blackman Founder and Owner of Virtue Consultants

The Entrepreneur Way

Reid Blackman was gripped by ethical problems the first semester of his first year in college over 20 years ago. Countless hours later, after reading, arguing, and teaching about ethics, he’s still hungry for more. While his early research concerned issues largely contained within the ivory tower, his research has become increasingly action-orientated, particularly as it concerns the ethics of emerging technologies and institutions like governments and corporations. Reid is a Senior Advisor to Ernst & Young and is a Founding Member of EY’s AI Advisory Board. He also sits on the committee for “Methods to Guide Ethical Research and Design” for the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems and is a member of the European Union Artificial Intelligence Alliance. He has taught at Northwestern University, the University of Texas in Austin, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and Colgate University. When he isn’t doing ethics you can find him with his wife and children, unless there’s rock climbing to be done. “I really think it’s important to talk to lots of people and just network your head off. There’s a way of networking that is gross where you just go around asking people what they could do for you. But I think there’s a kind of networking that is on the ethical up and up where you are motivated just as much by curiosity as you are self-interest. And so, you go around meeting people because you are curious to hear what they do and maybe they are in your field or maybe they are in and adjacent field or maybe they can’t help you but you can help them. I just think that stuff is extremely gratifying when you make connections, when you connect people to other people. And then also it could lead to your own welfare because then those people are grateful and then the introduce you to these other people that actually do benefit you. So do not underestimate the power of networking”…[Listen for More] Click Here for Show Notes To Listen or to Get the Show Notes go to https://wp.me/p6Tf4b-7hO

Brand transparency, authenticity, & scaling relationships w/ Justin Shriber & Reid Blackman

IBM thinkLeaders

Can a brand experience feel like an authentic experience? How can brands improve trust? What are ways that a brand can showcase their values? In this special episode of IBM thinkLeaders, recorded live at Cannes Lions, we are joined by Justin Shriber (Head of Marketing for LinkedIn Sales Solutions) & Reid Blackman (Founder & CEO of Virtue). We talk to Justin and Reid about navigating the customer experience, building authentic relationships, and whether platforms can empower one-to-one relationships. We also dive into the merits of the Dunbar Number and scaling relationship online, brand safety, data as currency, and when it might be appropriate to automate our communication. “We talk a lot about authenticity and I think that that conversation is going to evolve. Authenticity to me is simply being transparent with what your motives and your aspirations are. And the reality is that as marketers, as sales professionals, we can be authentic and that may not necessarily align with what customers are interested in. If as a marketer, what I really care about is moving more merchandise, moving more products and services, I'm being authentic, but that isn't necessarily the answer. So I think that there's going to be an evolution not just of being authentic, but also making sure that the things that you're being authentic about aligning to the audience that you're trying to reach.” -Justin Shriber, Head of Marketing for LinkedIn Sales Solutions“Those kinds of things are really important and they're good, but they could also be misleading in the following sense. It's easy to be the hero in one way by doing some grand gesture. It's difficult to be good day in and day out. And so one thing that companies really need to do is not just think about what are the big gestures we can make that would be a useful way of communicating our values. But what can we do day in and day out? What can we build into operations and workflow to make it the case that we really do take our values seriously?” -Reid Blackman, Founder & CEO of VirtueBIOSJustin Shriber is the Head of marketing for LinkedIn Sales Solutions. For two decades Shriber has helped companies accelerate growth and profitability by building strategies that align marketing, sales and service with customer needs. At Oracle, he headed Oracle’s CRM OnDemand organization, and at Siebel he was one of the early pioneers of the cloud, leading product teams responsible for delivering the first generation of SaaS applications. He was also vice president of products at C9, where he led product management, product marketing and strategy. @jshriberReid Blackman is the founder & CEO of Virtue, an ethical tech consultancy.Reid was gripped by ethical problems the first semester of his first year in college over 20 years ago.
