New Podcast on Professional Speakers and Storytelling


Launched New Podcast About Professional Speakers and Storytelling

In addition to running Convince & Convert, I am a professional speaker and gives multiple presentations each year on marketing and customer experience. I was even in the Hall of Fame speaking professionally (alas, no bronze busts).

As a speaker, I’ve discovered that one of the things that differentiates a great production-on-stage performance is the story: how relevant they are to the audience. fakes and how richly they are told.

Why are some stories better than others and why are some storytellers better?

This week, I launched the STANDING OVATION to find out.

Where Professional Speakers Tell Their Stories

Standing Ovation Every episode of my new podcast, Standing Ovation , works like this: I introduce the episode, and then the audience hears a distinctive real-life story, told on stage by a professional speaker. When the story is over, I interview the speaker about how the story was found, developed, polished, and perfected.

The show’s tagline is “where professional speakers tell their story” because it is what it is: an in-depth and detailed discussion of professional speaking and the art of inner storytelling.

I learn something new about the art of speaking in every episode. I can honestly say I’m a significantly better speaker just by recording the first few episodes of Standing Ovation, and I AMAZING bringing this show to you.

Details from Standing Ovation

Some tips I discovered while recording the first few episodes of Standing Ovation:

  • There is a huge difference in how speakers find stories. Many people just “happens” to the speaker, and eventually they decide to use them on stage.
  • Even the best speakers invest in professional coaching.
  • The perfect stories of speakers vary widely: some try new things in front of an audience each time, while others hit the ball on paper or in rehearsals.
  • The best speakers make them relatable to their audience by telling a personal, human story right in the middle of the presentation.

One of the other interesting elements of this show is that we only hear the story, we don’t see it. As a result, you can really capture the story and “feel” how it works without having to watch the speaker describe the story or their slides (although most of these stories are presented in a presentation). without multiple slides, if any).

The guests participating in the program are the leading lights among the professional speakers. Here are the first three episodes (all available):

New episodes are released every Monday, so enjoy them all.

If you are a speaker, hire speakers, want to be a speaker, or simply want to be a better communicator and storyteller, this is the podcast for you.

You can Find Standing Ovation here or wherever you get podcasts. I would love for you to listen to it.

ps – Speaking of audio, if you have an Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant device, enable the “Holiday Visit History” skill/app to get a special surprise from me and Convince & Convert! Go if you need instructions.
