Atlanta Business RadioX announced today the launch of a new weekly radio show called Inspiration at Work. The one hour weekly program features business leaders who inspire their employees, their customers, or in the case with nonprofits, their donors and volunteers. Inspiration at Work is hosted by Terry Barber, C.E.O. of The Global Institute for Inspiration. The first show aired January 3, 2011.
“Each and every business should have an address on Inspiration Boulevard,” explains Barber. “We are providing our listeners with the opportunity to hear and learn how the most inspiring companies in the world got to be that way and how being so drives stakeholder value.”
Inspiration at Work airs each Wednesday from 12 -1p.m. EST. Listeners are able to tune in and listen to the show by clicking on the Listen Live button at inspirationatwork.businessradiox.com. Free podcasts of each episode will be available for download on Apple’s iTunes store.
Each show will cover topics such as how ‘acts of inspiration’ are measurable and boost top- and bottom-line performance, how some organizations that made the Most Inspiring list are using social media to engage their employees and customers, how to identify one of four ways your company could become a Most Inspiring company, and how that message lived out by employees is driving customer advocacy.
“Adding Inspiration at work to our line-up of already compelling talk radio programs provides yet another valuable resource for our expanding community of listeners,” explains Atlanta Business RadioX Producer Lee Kantor. “Packaging and delivering content via internet radio continues to be an ideal medium for business owners looking for new ways to provide targeted content to preferred audiences in a simple and easy to consume format.”
