Thinkers360: Tell us a bit about your background and areas of expertise
RVL: My area of expertise is data, analytics, and AI. I help organizations, executives, and educational institutions drive awareness about the transformative impacts of data and analytics, and technology in businesses across industries. I’m also experienced in modernizing the way content is developed and distributed online and always pushing the boundaries by creating innovative video, audio, and text-based content strategies.
Thinkers360: What are your current responsibilities, and what’s a typical day look like?
RVL: My typical day is very involved, containing anywhere between 1-5 analyst briefings per day, where I speak with organizations and executives about their relationship with technology and its impacts on their business and industry. Next, I create 1-5 highly professional video recordings per day in a state of the art recording studio that contains high resolution video, audio, mixed reality (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality) capabilities, and moveable and interactive environments. Otherwise, I travel all over the world to attend and speak at industry events, conducting interviews with some of the most prominent and recognized technology professionals and executives at top organizations.
Thinkers360: What’s the favorite part of your current role?
RVL: My favorite part of my job is having the opportunity to meet with and work with leading minds and companies to learn and discuss the latest technology innovations. Being able to witness firsthand a behind-the-scenes look at the most recent and upcoming technological developments and business transformations has been invaluable to my work. I’m always excited to be one of the first people to see new technology up close. One of the best parts of my job is being able to share this information with the world.
Thinkers360: How do you utilize Thinkers360?
RVL: I use Thinkers360 as a platform to share my content, like the videos I create when I’m traveling the world or recording next-generation content in my recording studio. Thinkers360 is a great place for me to also connect and collaborate with other vendors and industry professionals.
Thinkers360: How do you like to work with brands that wish to engage you as a thought leader?
RVL: When other brands engage with me, I like to create educational content. My goal is to collaborate and use storytelling elements to design content that’s educational and entertaining so that I can spread key messages about the impacts of technology on society, culture, and businesses.

Thinkers360: What’s your main advice for upcoming thought leaders?
RVL: My advice is to constantly update your formats for distributing and creating content to keep pace with a fast-changing media landscape. It’s the combination of your knowledge as a thought leader and your ability to create new and interesting content formats that will keep audiences engaged.
