As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

Senour Reed provides business development and community engagement offerings in the Atlanta market and is the co-author of The Nine Pillars Of Business Development Collaboration. With over 40 years of business development and marketing experience in domestic and international markets, Senour brings strategic vision, deep experience, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. Senour also serves in a number of leadership roles in the Atlanta community.

If you didn’t listen to part one of this chat, go back to episode 74 first where Senour shares the first 5 of the 9 pillars with our community. We round out the journey of unpacking this brilliant framework with the next four pillars in this final episode of our two-part series.

Chat Highlights

  1. Pillar 6: Given the ubiquity of social media, why do most organizations fall short of having clear Social Media Best Practices and what can they be doing differently/better?
  2. Pillar 7: How have you built a Strategic Advisory over the course of your career and what value has it created for both your clients and your own professional growth?
  3. Pillar 8: As a provider, why is it critical to understand the Vertical and Horizontal Sectors and perspectives of your clients?
  4. Pillar 9: Why is it important for all companies to be Globally Aware regardless of whether they directly sell their goods or services globally?
  5. Bonus Discussion: How has Conscious Capitalism informed the way you look at doing business and feeling fulfilled in your career?
