When it comes to digital marketing, Scott Galloway has a knack for seeing what's next before the market does. Cases in point: He accurately nailed WeWork's unsuccessful IPO and Amazon's successful takeover of WholeFoods. In addition to being a digital marketing clairvoyant, Scott is a professor of marketing at the NYU Stern School of Business, has founded and sold numerous success businesses, the most recent of which he sold to market researcher Gartner. On top of all of that, he co-hosts one of the most popular business podcasts on the planet in Pivot together with US tech journalist Kara Swisher.
As far back as 2003, Kara Swisher has been considered one of the savviest and influential tech journalists in the US of A. Starting out at the Wall Street Journal, Kara met regularly with the biggest names in the industry and asked the critical, pressing questions of the day. Over the course of her impressive career, she has interviewed Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and other such absolute a-listers. Currently, she has made a name for herself as the host of "Recode Decode" (she co-founded tech site Recode) and still manages to find the time to co-host the world’s leading business podcast Pivot alongside with Scott Galloway. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone more qualified than Kara to break down tech anywhere.

For the past decade plus, Zak Normandin has been shaking up the consumer goods industry. Although engineering was his original calling, Normandin founded Little Duck, a brand for healthy children’s snacks after his second child was born in 2009. Then came his wellness lemonade brand Dirty Lemon, which runs for USD 45 to 65 per six pack and is primarily sold via SMS orders. So far, some 2 million bottles of Dirty Lemon have been sold. Most recently Normandin founded a holding company, Iris Nova, who not only counts Dirty Lemon as one of its holdings, but also a variety of other beverage trademarks. Since 2018, Coca-Cola has had a minority stake in Iris Nova.
