The Weekly Scale: May 3rd, 2021

This week at MarketScale, we worked on our professional development one block at a time with LEGO, previewed the business side of the NFL draft, and asked how manufacturing will respond to the supply chain shake up.

It’s the start of a new week, and it’s time to scale up.

The Supply chain has been shaken up in recent months, and many are wondering how manufacturing will respond.

Chief Commercial Officer at HP Christoph Schell joined Calvary TV to discuss the emergence of digital manufacturing and how changing business models forced many industries to take a more holistic look.

There has never been a more important time for QSRs to operate lean and cut inefficiencies. This week on To the Edge and Beyond, Intel’s Internet of Things Group was joined by PreciTaste to discuss how very few drive-thru’s were well optimized for digital journeys and how QSRs are leveraging AI to develop refined production plans.

This month, LEGO Education announced a new Education Professional Development program geared toward competency-based learning that inspires and actively engages teachers in facilitating playful and hands-on STEM learning.

Our own Kevin Hogan sat down with President of LEGO Education Esben Stærk to find out how the program was designed for the needs of today’s educators.

The NFL draft is now over, and many young men became instant millionaires over the weekend.

NFL veteran and head of sports and entertainment at global wealth manager UBS Wale Ogunleye joined Salary Capped to discuss how he is disrupting the industry by breaking down the stigma of professional athletes and celebrities making poor financial decisions as they come into wealth.

From clean energy to plans to update the energy infrastructure in the United States. On this week’s MarketScale Roundtable, we’ll explore the current state of the energy industry in the United States.

The panel will include:

Eyal Aronoff, Pioneer Energy

Troy Morgan, PanTech Design

Omeed Badkoobeh, Yotta Energy

And energy influencer, Lynn Lyon

Make sure to follow along for future roundtables. We will also be checking out the personalization of QSR on May 10th.

I’ll be back next Monday for The Weekly Scale but, until then, if you know of a story that you want us to cover, let us know with the hashtag B2BNeverSleeps.
