Jackie Cuyvers: The Power of Social Intelligence Insights

April 29, 2021

My guest is another incredible entrepreneur and my dear friend, Jackie Cuyvers. She is a tech entrepreneur and social intelligence expert. Jackie is also Co-Founder and CEO of leading tech company Convosphere, a social intelligence agency working with clients across a range of different industries. 
I have to add that she is also a mother of three. She is doing the MSc at Oxford University in the Social Science of the Internet and supporting young female entrepreneurs along the way.

In the beginning, Jackie explains what social intelligence is and how it helps businesses understand consumer behavior. They analyze public conversations that have already happened, and they do it globally in different languages.

We talk about changes made by pandemic experience and how social intelligence replaced traditional research technics such as focus groups. 

Jackie remembers how she evolved along with the tech industry and how her career combined art, science, and technology.

She shares her perspective on privacy and mass data collection and why she thinks that concern is misplaced.

Jackie encourages young people who are building businesses to try things out, prioritize and focus. She also recommends a book she recently read, “Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age.”
