This episode was recorded pre-COVID-19 crisis, but Tara and Stef found a few parallels between the outbreak and the climate crisis. We’ve got a brand new format that will give you a much clearer insight into digital strategies from here on out! Our guest this week is Laura Fitton, who is the Principal and Founder of The enough company. Her aim was to explain and evangelize market-driven shifts that can bring speed and scale to the climate crisis fight. Her approach merges her environmental science and policy degree with her expertise as a tech CEO/Founder, author, professional speaker, and recognized trailblazer in communications, community, and social media. Once upon a time dubbed a "Queen" of Twitter, Laura “@Pistachio” Fitton led the team that wrote ‘Twitter for Dummies’ and founded oneforty.com (acquired by HubSpot) in 2009 when she recognized that software built on Twitter’s API was going to change the world. Laura is credited with convincing the likes of Guy Kawasaki and thousands of tech execs that Twitter would have real business, media, and cultural value. She founded the first Twitter for Business consultancy, Pistachio Consulting, in 2008 and has been speaking professionally about the business use of Twitter since 2007. Laura has lectured at HBS and MIT-Sloan and has been quoted in dozens of national publications including BusinessWeek, Forbes, Fortune, Newsweek, and The Wall Street Journal. She also once raised $25,000 for charity December 2008 in the first-ever "donate by tweeting" charity campaign.
