Sourcing Connections for Talking Shizzle
In 2022, Barlele embarked on a new venture, the Talking Shizzle podcast, which is a marketing podcast focused on helping grow social good organizations.
The format of this podcast is conversations between Taylor Shanklin and other leaders in the industry covering:
- other business-related and mission-driven topics
This format leads to engaging discussions, but it also raises a serious question: how do you build a sustainable pipeline of knowledgeable and interesting guests for the podcast?
After kicking off with Nexus for Partner+, the Nexus team dove into our network and began taking on the task of finding experts who would be good fits for Talking Shizzle. In the first 6 months of the partnership, Nexus has made 8 introductions between Taylor and other experts.
Partner+ has allowed Nexus to leverage our wide network of connections to help save the Barlele team hours of work in sourcing as well as opening doors to organizations they were not previously connected to.
