Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] On college campuses across the nation, thousands of students explore their passions and future career paths through involvement in student affinity groups and clubs. In this episode, host Dennis Wisco comes to you live from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business with guests Maximilian Bui, Vihan Krishnan, Eric Hovanessian from the USC Formula SAE Team. These dedicated students discuss how Formula SAE has defined their college experiences, the competition timeline, and their motivations for growing in the automobility industry. Formula SAE is an international collegiate design competition that challenges student teams to design and manufacture an open-wheel race car during the academic year. There are two annual Formula SAE competitions in the United States that consist of three judged phases - Design, Performance, and Business. Team members are expected to participate in cutting-edge research, analysis, and manufacturing in order to craft a high-performance racing vehicle to take to the competition. A winning team must also excel in project management, teamwork, and business skills. The University of Southern California chapter of Formula SAE is a student-run organization that designs, constructs, tests, and races high performance autocross race cars over the course of the academic year. For over ten years, the USC Formula SAE club has welcomed all students interested in engineering, computer science , motorsports, and in general, automotive enthusiasts, regardless of past experiences. The fifty-member team is housed in the Rapp Engineering Building, and is enthusiastic about inviting new members with a willingness to get hands-on and dirty with automotive engineering. In 2019, USC Racing finished 6th in the "Business" phase of the national FSAE competition. In this episode, Eric, Max, and Vihan, discuss balancing their membership in FSAE with academic and personal interests, leadership dynamics within the club, and staying on-schedule when engineering their competition car. Tune in to hear how participation in Formula SAE -- like USC Racing -- fuels an excitement to influence the business models for the mobility of people and goods for the future.  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Tensions at dealerships go beyond the salesperson-customer dynamic. Sometimes this tension is an internal battle with dealership staff. As a result, a transformation is occurring at dealerships where more and more dealer executives are moving away from commission-based salespersons to hourly product experts. Patrick McMullen, VP of Strategy and Innovation at Max Digital, discusses external and internal dealership operations at his fictitious "McMullen BMW" store. This is Part I of a two-part series analyzing the evolution of the salesperson into a product expert. Stay tuned for Part II. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...

From Private Property to a Shared Economy feat. John Rossant

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Recording at La Kretz Innovation Campus, our guest can best be described at this moment in time through the launch of his book Hop, Skip, Go: How The Mobility Revolution is Transforming Our Lives which will be released on November 12th. You can say that this book may be the culmination of all of his work -- from his journalism days at Business Week to event production of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to currently serving as the Founder and Chairman of the NewCities Foundation. Hop Skip Go is about the billions of people on the move. Underlying each stage of mobility -- from foot to horse to cars and jets -- are the mathematics of three fundamental variables: time, space, and money. Our guest and his co-author and business journalist, Stephen Baker, look beyond the false promises of the past to examine the real future of transportation and the repurcussions for the world's cities and the global economy. Upon graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor's in History, our guest attended the American University in Cairo where he learned the language and culture of the Arabic world. He speaks four languages -- Arabic, English, French, and Italian. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...
