    BLT - Business Life Transitions with guest Fred Weber

    in Marketing

    This week's guest is Fred Weber.


    Fred began his professional life on an academic track.  With a Ph.D. in philosophy from Northwestern, he joined the faculty of the University of Hawaii at Hilo.  Involvement in a public program in the humanities, however, led him to the state-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in Providence, RI.  When federal funding for the arts and humanities grew scarce, a newly acquired MBA helped get him back to his native Chicago in a marketing position with Follett Corporation.  The fit was excellent, and Fred stayed with Follett for nearly 30 years, retiring 3 years ago as SVP of Wholesale and Distribution Services.  But, this year he returned to the college store industry as CEO of the ICBA, a retail cooperative of over 150 institutionally owned college stores. Business Life Transitions is a radio show that talks about you and your business.  It will help you understand how to re-invent yourself, your business, and your life.


    Join Brian Basilico & Jan Marino every Monday Morning at 9am CST.

    Great Plains writer Marilyn June Coffey has written three books, 600 poems, and dozens of articles and stories. A trained journalist (B.A., University of Nebraska, 1959) and creative writer (M.F.A., Brooklyn College, 1981), she has produced work that includes a popular memoir, a record-setting novel, and a prize-winning poem. Her poem, Pricksong, reviewed in the Los Angeles Times Book Review and Newsweek, won a national Pushcart Prize. Coffey's novel Marcella made literary history. It was the first novel written in English to use female autoeroticism as a main theme. Gloria Steinem called it "an important part of the truth telling by and for women. In 1989, Coffey's memoir, Great Plains Patchwork, appeared. The New York Times called it entertaining and insightful. Atlantic Monthly featured a chapter as its cover story. Natural History bought two chapters, American Heritage one. Harper & Row, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich printed excerpts. Known as a prose stylist, Coffey received a Master Alumnus award for distinction in the field of writing from the University of Nebraska in 1977. Since 1987, the UN-L Archives has collected forty boxes of Coffey's papers in its Mari Sandoz room.

Now retired, Coffey taught writing at Boston University, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Fort Hays State University in Kansas for thirty-four years, twice earning tenure. She became an interpretive reader/performer, appearing on local radio stations, statewide TV, and before more than 130 groups in twelve states, from Maine to Texas.

    Creating a Spirited Life with Janet Kessenich


    Topic: The Consumer Has a Soul: The Whole Person in the Marketplace


     


    When you shop, do you ever feel like you have to leave your soul at the door?


    The consumer in our culture is traditionally viewed by marketers as a statistic and a demographic to be analyzed and manipulated. But, marketing expert and author Tracy Carlson understands the consumer is a whole person - one with feelings, intuition, integrity, and an artistic sensibility.  


    She's identified what's missing from most marketing campaigns and what creates an approach that respectfully treats the consumer as a whole being. We'll discuss how we, as consumers, can recognize the businesses that are bringing the soul into the marketplace on the broadcast of Creating a Spirited Life: The Consumer Has a Soul: The Whole Person in the Marketplace.


     


    Tracy Carlson is Founder & Principal of Right-Brain Brands. She is a seasoned marketing strategist, speaker and advisor who helps companies develop brands that people care about and that inspire loyalty.  Tracy has led some of America’s best-known brands (Dove, Hellmann’s, Wisk) and consulted to many more (including General Mills, Rubbermaid, and Pepsi), and has extensive experience advising startups and small businesses as well. 


    Tracy’s non-traditional background combines equal parts Wharton MBA and unrepentant Yale humanities geek. This hybrid expertise, integrating human-centered right-brain thinking with left-brain analysis and metrics, forms the basis for her new book What Great Brands Know: Unleash Your Right-Brain Genius to Stand Out and Make Customers Care.
