Today's guest is Tamsen Webster who's a brilliant keynote speaker and change strategist. She’s also an insightful “idea whisperer” who knows how to bring a talk or presentation to life. Her experience with the topic runs deep; she’s the executive director of the oldest (and one of the largest) locally organized TED talk events in the world. She’s particularly noteworthy for her simple yet powerful “red thread” framework, which she’ll explore in depth in this episode.
In this episode, we talk to Brian Richards, an internationally recognized expert on branding. He founded New Zealand’s first full-service consultancy specializing in brand strategy and design and his team works all over the world. Brian’s unique methodology has been recognized by universities and marketing circles internationally. In this conversation, he shares it with Marketing Speak listeners, offering a high level of insight into what goes into successful, compelling branding.
Today, we’re speaking with Rachel Hanfling, who’s an Emmy-nominated TV producer, international keynote speaker, and media and communication consultant who spent two decades producing for some of the nation’s biggest names. She’s here to share her tips on media training to help you present yourself to look strong, capable and competent no matter the medium.
The incredible Sally Hogshead has done it all. In this conversation, it becomes very clear that she also has a deep, nuanced understanding of human nature and communication. She explores how your personality and goals should shape the message you share with the world, and how having all these things in alignment offers the potential for a more powerful message. This conversation previously aired as episode 44 on my other podcast, The Optimized Geek, but it’s so great I had to share it with my Marketing Speak listeners too! With that said, though, I suggest checking out The Optimized Geek if you aren’t already a regular listener. You’ll learn many tips, strategies, and methods to transform your life, body, and health.
This week we have the pleasure of hearing from Josh Elledge, a self-described “practicer of PR.” It’s clear Josh knows what he’s talking about, too; he has been on TV and radio over 1,500 times, has appeared on 75 different TV shows, and reaches over a million readers each week with his syndicated column. His Savings Angel podcast is the #1-ranked consumer shopping and savings podcast worldwide. Instead of focusing on advertising, Josh has created his success through PR. After his success with SavingsAngel, he created upendPR, which is designed to inspire entrepreneurs and provide a roadmap to successfully increasing sales through PR. In this episode, Josh gives generous and open insight into his methods and strategies.
