Nigel Leeming

Murphy’s, the pub, restaurant, and destination in Hanover, NH, is one of those places that just has to be in a college town. But why? In this episode, we talk to Nigel Leeming, the entrepreneur who put the place on the map. Turns out, however, that Nigel is not a one-trick pony. A serial restaurant entrepreneur (opened 37; owned 13), his real passion is the business of talent, an industry he’s been involved in for years.

I can’t act, and I can’t sing, but Carol Dunne sure can. She can also resurrect failing regional theatre troupes, manage two organizations at the same time, and recruit and mentor leaders who happen to be women in the artistic world. I learned a lot from talking to Carol, who is honest, sharp, and engaging. Listen as we talk about her life, how she got into music and theatre in the first place, how she’s dealt with enormous challenges and some failures, and what it means to be a leader in a...

Jim Beattie

More
You don’t have to be a baseball fan to appreciate Jim Beattie. True, he did pitch a complete game victory in the World Series for the 1978 Yankees. And he was the general manager of the Montreal Expos for six years, and a baseball scout far longer than that. But he also graduated from Dartmouth College, earned an MBA in Washington years later, and perhaps unsurprisingly has a keen eye for talent and dealing with pressure. We talk about all these things, as well as family, intuition and...

Is there any job more difficult than being the President of a major university? Not only are you dealing with students and their parents as your core customers, you’ve also got to manage a group of professors whose tenure makes them remarkably independent of you and anyone else for that matter. As someone who has studied leaders in all sorts of organizations, it was so much fun for me to talk to Dartmouth’s President Phil Hanlon. Growing up in a small mining town in upstate New York where...

Jane Watson Stetson

More
As the former finance chair of the Democratic National Committee, Jane Watson Stetson understands how to get people behind a cause. She is a master fundraiser and has used her tireless work ethic to help fund numerous political campaigns from local Vermont elections, to the race for the presidency. As it turns out, she’s also the granddaughter of the founder of IBM, something that has brought more challenges than most of us might imagine. In this episode, Jane and I discuss what makes...

Deb Shinnlinger

More
The Sydcast loves coffee, so you can imagine how excited we were to discover a world-class espresso joint just down the road. We had to invite the creator of Lucky’s Coffee Garage, Deb Shinnlinger, to be our guest. An entrepreneur, artist, emergency room worker, school teacher, and a mom, Deb has a great story you’ll want to hear about, and learn from. Two added bonuses: One of the top baristas in the country and Deb’s coffee lead, Mark Nunziata, makes a cameo appearance to talk all things...

Gillian Apps

I grew up watching hockey - I’m a Canadian after all - so having a chance to talk to my guest today is such a treat. Gillian Apps is a three-time Olympic gold medalist for the Canadian women’s ice hockey team. She also happens to be one of my students at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. In her spare time, she’s training for an Ironman competition - of course. But, it hasn’t always come easy for Gillian, despite coming from hockey royalty in Canada. Now, at a crossroads, she needs to...

Howard Anderson

More
When Howard was 24 years old, a story broke on the front page of the New York Times about a technology report he had written. There was only one problem: there was no report. His analysis was on the money; the report, well, that came afterwards. Almost 50 years later, Howard has a venture capital firm with billions of dollars in investments and has crossed paths with the most legendary names in tech, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. Howard’s numerous anecdotes and...
