The Sydcast is all about intimate and informative conversations with fascinating people you may not know. Until now. Because everyone has a story.
Listen in as Syd talks to entrepreneurs, community leaders, professional athletes, politicians, academics, authors, musicians, and many more about who they are and how they got there.
Sydney Finkelstein is an award winning professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and a best-selling author of Superbosses and 25 other books. He’s written for the Harvard Business Review, the BBC, Fortune, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and more academic journals than you’d care to know about. He spends his time asking questions, and sometimes, even answering them.
Have you ever wondered how the money behind political parties actually works? Meet Jane Stetson - Obama fundraiser and philanthropist.
As the former finance chair of the Democratic National Committee, Jane Watson Stetson understands how to get people behind a cause. She is a master fundraiser and has used her tireless work ethic to help fund numerous political campaigns from local Vermont elections, to the race for the presidency. As it turns out, she’s also the granddaughter of the founder of IBM, something that has brought more challenges than most of us might imagine. In this episode, Jane and I discuss what makes someone qualified to be a parent, the life of an ambassador’s daughter, and how to build relationships so meaningful, that people will help you raise money for a cause.
