This week Kontented, the Sydney-based content, strategy and activation company, launches Kontented Kollective, a weekly podcast covering business, marketing and entrepreneurship.
Hosted by founder and CEO of Kontented, Kate Constantine (née Edwards), the podcast will feature weekly guests including CEOs and heads of industry and discuss their innovation, leadership and overcoming challenges and triumphs in their sector.
Kontented Kollective will speculate about the industry as a whole and delve into the background stories and insights of the guests and their stellar careers.
Launching today, the first Kontented Kollective guest is Kate Vale, managing director of Spotify Australia and New Zealand. Other confirmed guests for series one of Kontented Kollective include Chris Nolan, chief executive officer of Starcom MediaVest Group, Kylie Rogers, managing director of Mamamia Women’s Network and Nicole Sheffield, CEO of NewsLifeMedia.
On creating the podcast, Constantine said, “Podcasts are one of the most rapidly growing content platforms in media today and as Australia’s largest independent content company we wanted to provide a truly compelling addition to the realm.
“I felt there was a serious lack of good, check that, great business and entrepreneurial lead ‘smart/thinking’ podcast content, so I thought it was my opportunity to open up my little black book of contacts and showcase some of the titans in my industry.
“On recording the first couple of podcasts we realised just what gold we had struck. These unfiltered conversations with some seriously impressive humans and their companies have genuinely inspired me to be involved in my industry that sometimes can get such a tough rap.”
Kontented Kollective has partnered with innovative Australian podcasting tech platform WHOOSHKAA, which has been confirmed as the world’s first podcasting platform for Facebook’s new audio sharing technology. Kontented Kollective will spearhead and lead Whooshkaa’s business podcast offering for this new technology.
Kontented Kollective is recorded weekly to ensure the freshest content and will follow an informal “in conversation” style, but will follow the four major pillars of business – marketing, media, innovation and entrepreneurship. You can listen to Kontented Kollective at www.Kontented.com/podcast or subscribe and listen on iTunes.
