Speaking

Virtual / Physical from my own studio

I’ve been studying old and new media techniques for 25 years having been successful in traditional broadcast radio, YouTube and in communications. But it is cutting edge techniques used by pioneers in the communications space today that fascinate me the most.

The talks I give are changing all the time because the techniques I talk about are changing all the time.

While I can call on a wealth of knowledge it’s what the audience needs most that matters. So when you make contact, do let me know what I can share that will leave you audience going away with some real value.

If you are not quite sure what topics to cover or you would like to get an idea of the topics I have covered more recently, please read on.

Talk 1 – Why podcasts fail. A 2 year study of successful podcasters

When you look hard at successful podcasters you start to see patterns which differ from the fantasy so often put out online. Success is possible, it’s proven by others, but it’s not done by just releasing something and hoping for the best. In this talk I round up some of the key findings studying podcasters for 2 years. It ranges from how they grew audiences and communities to how they pick their content.


Talk 2 – How to network as a business professional using podcasts

Networking is a vital skill in many industries but in this post-COVID world, with travel still restricted, how do you build relationships when you can’t see people face to face as much as you used to? In this talk I explain how to use podcasting, not to be the next Joe Rogan but in order to reach the people who normally wouldn’t answer their phone to you, how to build relationships and your professional network.


Talk 3 – How to do new media interviews that grab people’s attention

With so much competition out there now, doing ordinary interviews is never going to get you noticed. In this talk I look at the techniques of the interview, how to find questions that stand out, how to stay in control and how to make interviews serve your goals.
