Professional Troublemaker

Go Unafraid (with Bozoma Saint John) - Episode 14

Episode Summary

This week on Professional Troublemaker we’re kicking off Archive April! We’re reaching back into the archives from when the podcast was called Rants & Randomness and bringing you some of the conversations Luvvie has had with some amazing Professional Troublemakers over the years. For this first episode of Archive April, Luvvie is talking to her friend Bozoma Saint John. Currently Chief Marketing Officer for Netflix, at the time of this interview in 2018, Boz had just left her job at Uber and taken on a role at Endeavor as their Chief Marketing Officer. Boz and Luvvie are talking about how they’ve learned to show up unafraid in these corporate spaces where no one looks like them and why it matters that they go into those spaces anyway.

Episode Notes

On this episode of Professional Troublemaker, Luvvie is bringing back a conversation she had with her guest Bozoma Saint John back in 2018. We’re reaching back into past episodes of the podcast you may have missed and sharing great conversations with Professional Troublemakers as part of what we're calling Archive April.

Though she’s now the Chief Marketing Officer for Netflix, at the time of this interview Boz had just left Uber and was taking on a new role as Endeavor’s Chief Marketing Officer. We talk about why she must bring unfiltered #NoirPixieDust into boardrooms and how she made her own lane at brands including Pepsi, Apple, Uber and Endeavor, and why bringing her real self into the C-Suite gives her an edge. Boz also shares why there’s no room for imposter syndrome in her life and why she’s her own biggest supporter.

Let us know what your favorite interview has been from our past archive, and check back next week for a new interview!
