Our Dearest Topic Community,

I sincerely hope you are staying healthy and doing great!

Rather than sharing a tint of inspiration and optimism today, as we usually do every Monday morning, I wanted to take the foot off the accelerator for a minute and take a moment to open up to you, our wholehearted community, to let you know how thankful we are for your support and how your encouragement is taking us to explore the limits of our imagination, creativity, and capacity.

It’s your support that is enabling us to keep advancing our purpose of encouraging people and organizations around the world to lead with purpose. It’s each one of you that enable us to fulfill our mission of sharing stories and insights that inspire people, communities, and companies all across the globe to make a positive impact in the diverse ecosystems in which they operate.

Today, I wanted to share with you how Topic Insights is growing and how excited we are for what’s awaiting ahead in our journey.

HOW TOPIC INSIGHTS IS GROWING

Website Optimization

Recently, we have partnered with Gloss Tech, a Colorado-based Strategic Digital Marketing Agency that will empower Topic Insights’ website optimization in terms of design, performance, security, and sustainability. Gloss Tech will be helping us further build and develop its website to be able to spread our impact to further communities. Our team fiercely believes that partnering with Gloss Tech is a step in the right direction.

Growing Our Expertise

At the same time, I wanted to give a warm welcome to Marcos Brakenridge and Maria Sol Flecha, who have joined Topic Insights’ team in the last month.

Marcos Brakenridge will be Topic Insights’ Chief Operating Officer. Marcos has not only been a close friend, but also a powerful influence for those around him. Marcos, who has previously worked in the automotive industry and is currently pursuing his BBA in Business Administration at Kansas University, will be taking on Topic Insights’ new growth and development strategies as well as continue sharing his unique insights about how we can stand up and step up for the one thing we all have in common: our Earth.

Maria Sol Flecha, also a dear friend, will be joining Topic Insights as our Chief Communications Officer. Maria Sol, who is currently finalizing her last year as a business student in Germany, will be taking on Topic Insights’ digital, public relations, and social media strategies. She has previously worked in digital marketing agencies as well as in coaching and human development companies and seeks to, through Topic Insights, encourage people to have the courage to let their most authentic selves shine to live a bold and fulfilling life.

New & Exciting Categories!

We are also very excited to share that we have included new categories which we will be discussing in more depth in our upcoming articles!

In our newly-added category, Opinion, our writers will share their personal thoughts, reflections, and analysis on life, business, current events, headlines, global views, and social activism with the purpose of encouraging our community to speak up for the things that matter to them.

We have added the category of Work Life with the purpose of sharing high-quality productivity tips, inspiring personal stories, and career advice to boost your professional journey. We believe that having a well-rounded life is key to a successful and happy life – and we want to help you get there.

In our last newly-added category, Impact, Topic Insights will share the products, services, and ideas that we believe are set to redefine and shape the world. We want to encourage our conscious-buying community to shop for these products to help reduce waste and pollution without sacrificing quality of life.

Welcoming Dr. Stacy Neier Beran!

I am honored to announced that Dr. Stacy Neier Beran from Loyola University Chicago will be sharing her thoughts, ideas, and immense expertise on design thinking and market research with the Topic community. As a former student of Dr. Beran, I have no words to express how grateful I am for the way in which she has empowered me, and countless other of my fellow Ramblers, to embrace life as occurring at the intersection of curiosity, vulnerability, and empathy.

Dr. Beran is without a doubt one the most uplifting and empowering people I’ve met. I am beyond excited for what she is preparing to share with our readers and sincerely hope this is just the first of many other articles she inspires our community with.

Dr. Beran will also be including some of her students’ excerpts, ideas, and work in her contributions in an effort to empower students to keep exploring and re-imagining the fascinating and transformative power of design thinking.

Dr. Beran encourages us to see life through a Day 1 mindset and as occurring at the intersection of curiosity, vulnerability, and empathy.

We want to both encourage you to follow us on our Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook pages as well as to promise you we’ll keep delivering a tint of optimism and inspiration with each post.

As of what’s awaiting ahead on our journey to purposefully inspire change, on behalf of the Topic Insights’ team, I want to assure you that we will continue delivering upon our brand promise: to deliver a tint of optimism and inspiration within each one of our articles.

We will do so by continuing to place people and communities at the heart of everything we do and by continue fostering a culture of high standards to ensure our highest quality work is delivered straight to your mailbox.

Interviews – coming up!

As our mission dictates, we seek to share stories and insights that inspire people, communities, and organizations around the world to make a positive impact. Part of those stories will be obtained from interviews we will be conducting to people who are standing up and stepping up for their communities – from business professionals to entrepreneurs, professors, influencers, and others. We hope these stories inspire you to keep your dreams alive and to encourage you to never let the spark of your passions come to an end.

Market Research – coming up!

Topic Insights will also be conducting market research to enhance the credibility of our investigations and to provide our audience with original, trending, and insightful data on what to keep an eye for.

Partnering with like-minded organizations – coming up!

We will also be looking to forge partnerships with organizations who share the same values and commitment than us with the purpose of promoting each other’s offerings. Through these partnerships, we seek to promote those companies willing to use the power of business as a force for good.

We hope these stories inspire you to keep your dreams alive and to encourage you to never let the spark of your passions come to an end.

Donations to Non-Profit Organizations – coming up!

In these unprecedented times, it’s not only big and small businesses who are struggling, but also non-profit organizations struggling to bring their cause to life. Therefore, our team has decided to not only promote these non-profit organizations, but also to allow our subscribers to donate to their cause in an effort to support their vision in these uncertain times.

Giving The People a Voice

We are not only here to share our stories and insights, we are also here to hear and share yours. We want to open the door to you and invite you to share your anecdotes, ideas, and reflections about what you consider important. Why? Because your voice matters – and the worlds needs to hear it.


To our team, subscribers, and community, thank-you. You are the reason we do what we do. Your support is the fuel that keeps us going.

We will continue to do our best to nurture and support the leader we see inside each one of you.

We see endless opportunities for what our future holds and we want you to be a part of it – because it’s you that’s making it possible.

With gratitude,

Ralf
