FIR presents Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester,  Episode 13: April 23, 2014

Linked ConversationsWelcome to the latest episode of Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester.

This episode I cover the newest LinkedIn feature: LinkedIn Publisher. Publisher is being rolled out slowly – about 25,000 users at a time – and will enable LinkedIn members to blog directly on the LinkedIn platform.

I have started doing just that with my first post on why I use LinkedIn every day (surprise!) hitting more than 5000 views. To put this in perspective, on a good day a status update I post on LinkedIn averages around 500 views.

You can check out all my LinkedIn posts.

My guest this week is Lisa Curtis, the CEO of Kuli Kuli. Lisa is one of the many amazing people I got a chance to meet at the Natural Products Expo West.

Kuli Kuli was founded to support women’s moringa cooperatives in West Africa by selling a small percentage of their moringa harvests in the form of moringa superfood bars in the United States. The company was named Kuli Kuli after the peanut paste that Nigeriens mix with moringa leaves to make them taste good.

You can learn more about Kuli Kuli on their website and through their Facebook and Twitter pages.
