The Tech Blog Writer Podcast

The Tech Blog Writer Podcast Has Listeners In Over 160 Countries

Neil C. Hughes - Tech Blog Writer Podcast

As a Tech Columnist and podcaster, I am on a quest to understand how technology is transforming both businesses and our lifestyle, but without the hype in my tech podcast. The Tech Blog Writer Podcast features diverse interviews with startups, tech leaders, thought leaders, CEO’s, solopreneurs, disruptors, and entrepreneurs. Guests share their success stories, experiences and invaluable advice about the latest tech trends affecting multiple industries.

Over the last 12 months, I have spoken with Capital One about being the first bank to embrace Amazon Echo. Meanwhile, as the digital transformation gathers pace, I have also recorded interviews with Adobe, Thomson Reuters, The Wyndham Hotel Group, and USA Today. Along the way, I have learned how it is also affecting sport and entertainment after enjoying conversations with Real Madrid, Motorsport.com, BBC America and Fender digital. I have also been incredibly fortunate to interview TV talk show host Wendy Williams and Star Trek’s William Shatner about how they are using technology on my podcast too.

However, my biggest passion is sharing real startup stories from all over the world so that others can learn from their valuable insights. The Tech Blog Writer Podcast currently has listeners in 160 countries. In the last 12 months alone, I have interviewed guests from the US, UK, Australia, China, Canada, Israel, Estonia, St Petersberg, Sweden, Ukraine, Greece, France, Ireland, the Netherlands and many more. Although my guests are often thousands of miles away from me in the geographical sense, there are remarkable similarities in all of the tech startup journeys I have shared. Most guests do not complain about friction points, they remove them.

As someone that records daily shows in a small room on my own, it can feel a little strange and often wonder who is listening and if they are finding the content valuable. For these reasons alone, I feel incredibly humbled to finish 2017 by being featured in Forbes as one of their list entitled “15 Inspiring Podcasts For Professionals Of Every Stripe.”

Tech Blog

The future is already here. Making sense of AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain, cryptocurrencies, digital assistants, self-driving cars, Augmented Reality and the Digital Transformation of Everything.

Neil C Hughes - Tech Blog Writer

I am incredibly fortunate to cover many of the world’s biggest tech events and get to speak with inspirational people who are making a difference in this world using technology.

Over the years I have become obsessed with understanding how technology affects us both in and outside of the office. I believe that technology helps us evolve in every aspect of our life whether we’re leading businesses, an employee or simply want to contribute more to our families and society. I enjoy gleaning insights from podcast guests, the people I meet within the tech industry and their experiences.

Many tech startups are utilizing technology in new and innovative ways. However, as the digital transformation gathers pace, AI, machine learning, blockchain, and cryptos are becoming the new currency. I want to help demystify this technology and help educate people in a language that everyone understands so that nobody gets left behind.

Equally, technology now rules every aspect of our lives. In our homes we can quickly switch on our home heating, dim the lights and cue the music, all using our voice or by swiping on our smartphone. Welcome to our always-connected world, where we can jump from device to device seamlessly. Spotify knows what music we like, Netflix knows what we want to watch and Amazon knows what we want to watch.

As consumers, we expect everything straight away. New solutions are removing friction points and doing things quicker and more efficient. As a result, we are seeing a rise in expectation levels and increasingly becoming reluctant to accept anything less. How are companies rising to this challenge? And how are they making it easier to do business? These are just a few of the topics I enjoy exploring.

Resources

A list of helpful resources for building and optimizing your business.

On most websites and blogs, you will find a resources page that typically consists of affiliate links to GoDaddy, Libsyn, HostGator or Amazon. But I repeatedly found myself asking how much value does this offer? Over the years, I have met, helped and have been supported by some fantastic people from all over the world. Rather than post soulless affiliate links, I wanted to feature services and products from people that we can utilize to help grow our business together.

Below is a list of tools and services that I have personally used and recommend. As I continue on my own journey and turn to the global community for help, I will continue to add further services if I believe they can provide value to you too. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about my experiences or your own with the services below.

As this list grows, I might add the occasional affiliate link that will go towards the running costs of my website and podcast hosting but I will be completely transparent about this.

Grammar Goddess Communication

Do you write blogs, magazine articles, or website content? Are you a ghostwriter or a professional résumé writer? 

If so, you know how easy it is to find an error in something you were certain was perfect — after you published it — right? You left out a word in a sentence. You used the wrong its / it’s. You wrote inedible when you meant inevitable. Susan Rooks can help you with all that and more. First class copyediting to help writers feel confident about their material.

Are you looking for HR-informed insights around resumes, interview tips or career advice to help get you hired and move ahead in your career?
