One of the things that trips most people up in their speaking is how they think about the WORDS they want to say instead of the MESSAGE they want to convey. In this episode I share my game-changing Frame Your Thinking method (the Impactful Presenters participants call it Post-It-Note-Magic) that helps you stay on message, calm your nerves and avoid…
 
For many of us, when we’re prepared, we can speak confidently. We have our slide deck, we’ve rehearsed, or we’ve mentally had the conversation with ourselves a few times. But when we’re put on the spot we’re struck dumb. Our mind goes blank. In this episode I share my life hack for collecting my thoughts quickly. And the awesome news is, this hack …

Listen to find out what these 3 mistakes how, whether you’re …
 
It doesn’t matter what you’re trying to achieve in life, there are only two types of barriers to success. And, once you know what those barriers are, you can overcome them.

It’s that time of year where we get caught up in new year’s resolutions and big goals for the year ahead.

Noone wants to be that person who runs meetings that are boring, a waste of time or just plain ‘blergh’.

Making the complex simple DOES NOT mean dumbing things down. In fact, I remember the theoretical physicist, Dr Brian Greene (who specializes in string theory) say something to the effect of, you do your audience, and humanity, a disservice, when you dumb your information down. Make your information understandable … but not dumb. Invite people ‘up’ …
