Episode Description

Think back 50 years, before computers, the Internet, even mobile phones, and now imagine what the world will be like 50 years from now. What changes do Americans expect to see in the next 50 years, the answers might really surprise you; are Americans optimistic or pessimistic about the changes they expect to see in the future; products we thought were so cool just 15 years ago, kids today can't work out how to use them; it is time for a single interface across all screens irrespective of their size; and is online gaming potentially as addictive as drugs, alcohol or gambling. We also discuss how you determine what you should charge for your products and which part of your target market you should focus on and when is the best time to leave the safety of your job and become an entrepreneur? We have our extremely popular email segment and an excellent interview We also talk to Liesl Capper CEO of MyCyberTwin and the Innovation and Information Industry Association “ICT Woman of the Year”. Her latest venture MyCyberTwin allows companies to make a software clone of their best customer service representatives. The result is a virtual human, which lives on a web site, or any online environment and replace contact centre staff. They are intelligent, consistent, friendly, and every aspect of the conversations with clients can be measured and tracked. MyCyberTwin has a growing stable of major international companies.
