Each month, “Lochhead on Different” episodes will explore the need to differentiate people, products, and services in a world that encourages a lot of imitation. A best-selling author, top podcaster, and former tech-industry CMO, Christopher Lochhead is a student of not only business and technology and marketing but also human nature, human folly, human genius, and very human joy.
In this wide-ranging episode, Chris and I discuss Mary Meeker’s popular annual Internet Trends Report. Inside is a fact that caught Chris’ attention: today, 3.8 billion people are on the internet. So Chris explains why he believes we need to get the other half on it, too. Taking a somewhat opposite tack, we also debate the merits and the downsides of internet usage. The report reveals that Gen Z spends between 5 and 10 hours per day on their phones.
Next, the conversation turns to Cutco, a knife company whose mantra is “Changing lives by selling knives.” We look at how its employee experience differs from that of a Facebook or other leading tech companies. Then, Chris explains why your life is like a smile.
