This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire:
"Wikimedia's Lila Tretikov: Freedom of Information for All"

As executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation — publisher of Wikipedia, the world’s fifth largest website — Lila Tretikov leads a nonprofit organization that boldly asks its users to “imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.

It’s the same vision that inspired Tretikov, the daughter of a mathematician and a filmmaker, as a child growing up in Moscow at the dawn of glasnost.

"Pollster Larry Rosin Talks Projections & Predictions" This week's "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire.

"Synchrony’s Toni White: Target Both Boomers and Millennials" this week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire.

Toni White, EVP and CMO of Synchrony Financial ― the erstwhile GE Capital’s new incarnation in the marketplace ― is expert at using analytics to create new and disruptive product and customer service models for the financial services industry. The irony is that White herself is a veritable poster child for career continuity, having spent nearly four decades with the same employer.

However, White will assure you that the challenge of transforming GE Capital from its roots as a financer of major appliance purchases to Synchrony’s current position as a major provider of private issue credit cards, B2B installment financing and retail banking has left her little time over the years to be bored.

"Recruiter Fran Pomerantz Searches for Digital Excellence" This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire

Fran Pomerantz, founder of New York City-based retained search firm The Pomerantz Group, may never see a résumé as unique, serendipitous ― and utterly fearless ― as her own.

As a digital media pioneer and visionary, Pomerantz’s embrace of new ideas, innate business acumen and openness to personal reinvention have taken her from Los Angeles to Manhattan and from elementary school teaching to executive recruiting.

This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: "Muck Rack CEO Gregory Galant Makes Media Look Easy"

"If Gregory Galant ― CEO of Sawhorse Media, which includes digital PR and journalism platform Muck Rack as well as the Shorty Awards honoring the best of social media ― ever feels he’s running out of space on his exceptional bio, perhaps he could simply drop his last name. After all, as @gregory, a charter member of Twitter’s First Name Club, he hasn’t needed it for years."

Delightful would be an understatement. This week's "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire is entitled "Fran Hauser: Digital Media Star Soars Into Venture Capital"
I've know Fran for years from her work at both AOL and Time Inc. A few weeks ago she spoke at Bonnie Halper's "StartupOneStop Breakfast with an Investor" series. But as you will read this goes way beyond investing.
Fran Hauser is a venture capital investor, digital media veteran and passionate advocate for young women in business...but there's more: http://bit.ly/Franhauser2

"New Media Savant Amy Vernon Brings Home the Bacon" this past week on "Connecting,...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire

In the course of Amy Vernon’s pioneering career, she has made a name for herself as a prize-winning journalist, social media expert, adjunct professor, conference speaker and mentor to young women in tech.

So it comes as a delicious irony ― and we mean that literally ― that the exuberant, irreverent Vernon is best known in certain quarters of the Internet by a name she has coined for herself: the Bacon Queen.
