Go ahead and get yourself that supersized iced coffee. It’s the start of a new week, and it’s time to scale up.

With 500 million native Spanish speakers worldwide, we are seeing incredible growth in Spanish content delivery through streaming.

Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin sat down with Mrugesh Desai, Lead for the North American Region for Accedo, to discuss the usage patterns they have seen in Hispanic audiences and how that guides user experience design that helps potential audiences find the content they want.

Last-mile delivery is now essential in the logics space, and a Dallas 100 company wants to shake up the space.

CEO of PickUP Brenda Stoner joined us our in Trinity Studio to discuss how the last mile for smaller parcels is relatively commoditized, while larger product delivery was an unfilled niche.

This week on the Voices of eLearning podcast, JW Marshall is joined by the host of Change Starts Here, Dustin Odham, to discuss how he and FranklinCovey are on a mission to create systems that ensure predictable outcomes for students and districts.
