Episode 19 (9:05) - On global warming
At the tail end of my interview (https://isene.org/2019/02/RelevantMen.html) on  Annmarie Bhola's  Breaking Ground podcast, she asked me about my views on global warming. We had an interesting exchange that turned out as a podcast in its own right. We decided it would be a nice joint venture to present this interview on Geir's Everything.

Episode 17 (05:14) - What is the meaning of life? What is your greatest asset?
Is there any meaning, any purpose to life? What is the true path? Religion? Science? The arts, sports, parenting, helping others, yourself, collecting stuff, happiness, action, inaction or something entirely different? What on Earth - or elsewhere - could be the meaning of all this?

Episode 16 (6:44) - Mental Training
There is a way to learn to be truly present without having to resort to mental tricks or doing anything special. Learning to really be present without any props or tools creates a foundation for clean focus. Because if you can calmly be present without needing any mental crutches, you can learn to focus without any underlying mental noise. This podcasts is about this simple, yet so hard to master skill. To train to do it well, read this OnePageBook: https://isene.org/onepagebooks/#1pb-2-mental-training---the-core

Episode 14 (13:13) - Impress with the Arrow->Box->Arrow method
I did a talk at the Procurement 4.0 conference at Deloitte in Oslo. While the topic I covered was digitilization in shipping, I ended up recommending the audience to go home and ask their sexual partner how they could be the ideal partner in bed for them... and then deliver that and telling me how it went. I am curious if I will get any feedback. During the talk I covered the essence in the OnePageBook "Impress!" via the Arrow->Box->Arrow method. Listen to the podcast and I will take you through a drill using this method. Link to the blog post: https://isene.org/2018/11/Podcast-Impress.html

Episode 13 (39:20) - Can collaboration be good business?
Shipping, ant hills and the crazy fashion industry. Why is collaboration good business? Why share? What does shipping have in common with the pharmaceutical industry? What is “ant hill innovation”, and how does that concept relate to the IT industry? In this podcast I cover a lot of ground - from the two types of collaboration and sharing to examples of industries where collaboration is common place to industries where it is shunned. I talk about Intellectual Property Rights; patents, copyright and trade marks. I cover examples of how those concepts can in fact stifle innovation and how limiting such protections can lead to more prosperity. Sharing can be more than just caring, it can be good and sound business. Link to the blog post: https://isene.org/2018/11/Podcast-Collaboration.html

Eposide 12 (23:51) - Women will be last to be replaced by robots and AI
I held a workshop in Tromsø - north of the arctic circle - at the annual WISTA conference (WISTA being the “Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association”). The topic of my workshop was “Digitization, robots and AI. Why women will be the last to be replaced by robots and AI”. I was having a fun three hours with 25 smart and inspiring women. And to sum it up, I decided to wrap it all into a podcast. Link to the blog post: https://isene.org/2018/10/Podcast-WomanAndAutomation.html
