158: Colin Stokes - On Why Talks Can Save the World

1/4/2018
More
Colin Stokes - TED speaker, communications and marketing professional, proud Dad, and fellow high school speech geek - sat down with me to talk about the powerful platform of speaking as perhaps THE way we might be able to create change in this world. That's a big statement, but I happen to believe that speaking has a very specific potential to create change. And Colin, a passionate advocate for social justice and change, agrees. So in this episode, we dig into WHY, and HOW. Why...

11/2/2017
More
Stephy Lewis [check out her amazing website!], presentation designer from the Presentation Guild - and my new pal from the Presentation Summit - got a chance to catch up and talk the good, bad and ugly about presentation design and development. Even though Stephy was dragged kicking and screaming from the field of design into the field of *presentation* design, she has discovered the depth, complexity and artistry of the profession - part of the reason why she's so passionate about her...

156: MMM - Top 5 Takeaways from the Presentation Summit 2017

10/9/2017
More
Ah, the Presentation Summit! I've had the most exciting September... last week I shared about the top 10 essential speaking lessons from the STORY Gathering in Nashville - and I went straight from Nashville to Tampa. I was met with gorgeous beaches and weather. Not bad for a work trip. :) But here's the deal: I wasn't sure I was going to like this conference. Last spring, I got an email from this man named Rick Altman, the creator of this conference and CEO of Better Presenting. He...

155 MMM: 10 Essential Speaking Lessons from STORY 2017

10/2/2017
More
Last week I had the great privilege of being a part of STORY Gathering 2017 - a gathering of creatives from a wide breadth of industries, brought together by one thing: story. I attended last year - and it was two days jam-packed with inspiration. Powerful speakers, moving music, thoughtful breakouts - and so. many. amazing. people. I was jazzed! From there, I got to interview a few of those amazing people on my show, including Brad Montague, Jason Jaggard, and Harris III. But this...

154: Brett Trapp: On Excruciating Vulnerability (and Sharing Anyway)

8/2/2017
More
Brett Trapp of the online memoir/story/audio story Blue Babies Pink is a writer, speaker and marketing consultant whose story took my heart by storm this past spring. Brett's "Southern coming out story" has been described as the "Netflix of blogs" - and is the epitome of Brené Brown's "excruciating vulnerability." He risked a lot to tell his true story. And it's awesome. So I was thrilled to get him on the show to talk about what it really means to tell his own true story with so much...

152: Harris III - On Creating a Magical Experience for Your Audience

5/24/2017
More
Harris III - magician, producer, creative guru - and the man behind the now practically infamous STORY Gathering that I continually rave about here on the show. Yes, that's right - I went straight to the source to hear about how it all came to life - and how to create something both uncommon and universally moving - a challenging feat. I've had so many guests on the show that were inspired by my experience at Story - Jason Jaggard, Brad Montague, and now Harris. Hank Fortener - a...

151: Rick Altman - On How to Make Your Power Point Actually Powerful

5/17/2017
More
Rick Altman - founder of Better Presenting and the Presentation Summit Conference - joined me on the show to talk about how we can make better presentations with better slide decks. What an important mission! As he said, hating PowerPoint is a badge of honor for so many people - but Rick's knowledge of PowerPoint has given him a chance to see the benefits of such a powerful tool, as well how we normal humans (read: not design or software experts) can use it well - in order to serve our...

150: MMM - Practicing the Art of Showing Up Anyway (150 episodes of outtakes)

5/3/2017
More
This week I hit my 150th episode. WHA??? (I know, I feel the same way.) Almost three years ago, I ventured into this endeavor sure that I had something to offer - but NO IDEA really how to do that, or if it would work, or how much work it would be. Turns out it was a LOT of work - and that I love it way more than I ever thought I would! This Moved Me has challenged me to show up, and take a risk. (A muscle all of us speakers need to flex as much as we can.) And that sometimes people dig...

149: MMM - My feedback for Chris at the TED Conference

4/26/2017
More
I had the awesome privilege to go and see the TED Conference Opening Session/Event on Monday night. Well, ok - I wasn't THERE. I was watching from a movie theater. Pretty much by myself. It was still amazing to be there and see how it's all pulled together. Unbeknownst to many people, it is not just a litany of individual talks - it really is an event. At the end, the amazing Chris Anderson (author and TED Conference curator and overall guru of life) asked for feedback from the...

Welcome to the Speaking Truths series! Regardless of how capable or skilled or experienced or savvy we are, too many of us struggle to fully embrace the power and importance of sharing our voice. We need to stand up - speak up - grounded in our authentic and courageous and clear voice. Even in that business meeting. Even in that workshop you've done a zillion times. Especially in that TED talk. But over the last two decades I've worked with too many speakers who hold themselves back by...

Brad Montague - creator of Kid President, creative genius, Founder of the Montague Workshop, and an overall wonderful human! As the creator of Kid President, Brad brought a message of hope and joy to life with his brother-in-law, Robbie. Together they created a "joy rebellion" that has inspired millions - and which compelled him up on stage, continuing to create videos and stories that bring light and joy into the world.

140: MMM - Thoughts on that amazing BBC video: What Would You Do?

3/21/2017

It is maybe the best thing I've ever seen, ever. I think there’s a reason why so many people (like, 23 million! - and counting) have enjoyed this video: because it is real life ramming up against these facades we create for the sake of our image. I’m guessing this is not how Mr. Expert (real name, Professor Robert Kelly, bless his heart) expected to be ‘put on the map.’ But here he is! And, to his and his wife’s credit, they are embracing it. And I love them for it. LOVE THEM. But I...
