Season 6 : Episode 3 - The Gamification of Change with Dr K S Sandhu
Our episode features Dr Kuldip Sandhu - Director of Innovative Quality Solutions. We chat about how companies have had to rapidly adapt due to the global pandemic. Essentially, how corporate leadership have empowered their employees to both deliver and govern effective change. Dr Sandhu has also developed a global unique change simulator that is blended, combining online learning with facilitated collaborative learning. The simulator uses the principles of gamification. Gamification techniques are intended to leverage people's natural desires for socializing, learning, mastery, competition, achievement, status, self-expression, altruism, closure or simply their response to the framing of a situation as game or play.

We start our new season discussing a video recently circulated widely on social media, a young Sikh boy is seen being assaulted by two others in school uniform as he was walking back home from class.

My guests are Medic Jasleen Kaur, Senior director Harpreet Singh and respected spokesperson (Sikh Council) and Senior director Manamagan Singh. We focused on what clearly appears as a racially charged incident. Together we explored the need for better education for all levels of society, including schools, parents and children.

Welcome to Season 5 Episode 19 of Dr Savi's Media Watch A few years ago we had an opportunity to interview the Reverend Jesse Jackson. At the time Dr Savi was asked by a close friend of his, a CEO of a major UK housing trust to interview Jesse Jackson during Jesse's short stop over in London. Jesse Jackson is an American civil rights activist, Baptist minister, and politician. He was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988 and served as a shadow U.S. Senator for the District of Columbia from 1991 to 1997. He is also the founder of the organisations that merged to form Rainbow Push. Rainbow Push is a nonprofit organisation formed as a merger of two nonprofit organisations: People United to Save Humanity. and the National Rainbow Coalition. Both organisations pursue social justice, civil rights and political activism. The recording took place just after the last stock market crash, with many losing their homes with the banks rushing to reclaim their loans to everyday people. Some of the points raised at the time are still relevant today. So, welcome to an archive recording of Media Watch.
