Radio host, author, editorial director, and president of Specialty Publishing Media, I provide a panorama of the disruption and digital rejuvenation that is required to achieve sustainability and circularity. My role is to help guide transformative shifts in designing and building the right solutions from conception, and that means leveraging the IoT and digital transformation for the innovation of products and ecosystems.
I deliver content building, storytelling, and support, to help thousands of customers aggregate, process, and make key decisions about data so they can navigate the IoT and digital transformation journey. Therefore, it’s my passion to do whatever I can to adhere to my motto, “with great technology, comes great responsibility.”
I have been fortunate to have clocked in more than 25 years of experience to be considered a futurist/specialist in IoT, AI, construction, sustainability, infrastructure, and digital transformation.
Coupled with a highly qualified and supportive team, I have a long history of covering manufacturing and construction, infrastructure, and an even stronger passion to empower a younger workforce and women to join STEM, IoT, and digital innovation.
Completing my latest book, “Sustainable in a Circular World,” affords me the greatest opportunity to help move the world from grey to green by shining light on future generations and inspiring innovation. I have had the honor of collaborating on eight books and authoring my first book “Mending Manufacturing” in 2014. As an award-winning journalist, one of the most laudable is the 2019 ASCE Excellence in Journalism Award.
Much of my success is a result of The Peggy Smedley Show surpassing more than 700 episodes, and it continues to be ranked the No. 1 broadcast, airing every Tuesday at 12 pm central.
Some of the more recent accolades:
I have also been recognized by the following organizations, as an industry expert.
I serve on the Boards of Advisors as a Member for both RevTwo and New Urbana and has previously served on IFTNEXT (Institute of Food Technology) Think Tank and IoT Council in Chicago.
Naperville, Ill. — Jan. 7, 2021 — The world needs to move from grey to green, fueled by design techniques that are sustainable in a circular economy. Specialty Publishing Media, a custom-content media company, announces Peggy Smedley, president, editorial director, and host of The Peggy Smedley Show, has authored a new book, Sustainable in a Circular World, design and restore natural ecosystems through innovation.
Sustainability intentionally maximizes the environmental, social, financial, and digital actions to fully engage its potential around a long-term motivational direction. These three components (environmental, social, and financial) come together to build up the digital age and lead to transformation, creating real change in society. This movement needs to be invigorated by the next generation of innovators who are committed to circularity and sustainability.
“My passion is inspiring the next group of skilled innovators as well as restoring our ecosystem through the use of advanced technology,” says Smedley. “My hope is this book will help to spur each generation to come together to create a more sustainable future together.”
