Recently, I was hugely delighted and excited to have been invited to present my motivational speech at a fabulous event in Austria.

On The Same Bill As Keynote Speaker Gary Vaynerchuk!

I’m hugely excited to appear on the bill of Brand Minds Asia with a raft of impressive professional speakers and keynote speaker, Gary Vaynerchuk. Wooop! As a professional motivational speaker who’s hired to present around the world, it’s taken me ten years of giving speeches to get to this point, and a further fifteen before that to have enough insight, business examples and knowledge to be able to present about creativity, innovation, sales and guerilla marketing, with the aim of delivering a speech that materially benefits the bright and dynamic people or Teams in the audience.

How To Manage Toxic, Difficult People In Work And Life

Fortunately, no unspoken workplace edict has ever dictated that an effective partnership is based strictly on two or more people actually liking each other. If that were the case, every business environment from McDonald’s to Microsoft might resemble a simultaneous reenactment of every Wrestlemania event ever witnessed. That flexibility comes at the ‘cost’ of exhibiting the patience to set aside wanting to throttle certain individuals in the name of an acknowledged shared interest. That single lesson learned and relearned repeatedly among coworkers is a universally applicable benefit of spending at least a little time as part of a team: if […]

How To Change Someone’s Mind With Careful Persuasion

Nerdist founder, prolific television host, comedian and holder of a degree in philosophy from UCLA, Chris Hardwick, so effectively sums up the central challenge of changing anyone’s mind about anything in his book ‘The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (in Real Life)’, with this single quote that could preface every motivational speech until the end of time… “‘Better’ often feels ‘new,’ and new situations are like jeans: they can sometimes take a bit before they start to fit right,” observed quite possibly Hollywood’s reigning ‘Hardest Working Man in Show Business’. He happens to be correct, too: if […]

Funny Public Speaking Topics To Win Over Your Audience

Informative public speaking is no laughing matter. A professional lecturer consummately honors the audience’s hard-earned money by remaining earnestly fixated strictly on the most personally moving, informative content. May your stoicism never falter. Your allotted time on stage is no place for jokes. Be ‘serious’. Refusal to allow your audience a lighthearted moment during your talk won’t captivate them with your unbroken intensity. Quite frankly, it will identify you as a colossal bore with a heart colder than an iceberg and all emotional relatability of table salt. Come on, now. Put yourself in their shoes: how far out of your […]

How to Be A Confident Leader In Tense Situations

Albert Einstein once observed, “Adversity introduces a man to himself”. Another oft-quoted worldly philosopher, Chuck Palahniuk’s nihilistic ‘Fight Club’ prophet Tyler Durden, mused two generations later, “How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?” A manager stands tall amidst the rear tanks, majestically points the way and digs his feels firmly into the dirt as he commands his company forward. A leader fixes his gaze, bellows “Charge!” and advances shoulder-to-shoulder and stride-for-stride at the head of his brothers and sisters. There is a time to manage through shrewd delegation and there are moments that […]

How To Connect An Audience That Distrusts You & Change Their Minds

No degree of personal wealth can buy the kind of lasting trust and integrity that the foundation of a thriving long-term business must be built upon for that enterprise to stand a remote chance of survival. Public speaking is absolutely no different. Let’s be clear on this: anytime someone extends an invitation to deliver an event’s keynote, agrees to your quoted appearance fee or purchases a ticket to attend one of your engagements, you have been extended the benefit of a doubt that your end of that value proposition will offer an enlightening, enrichment experience that leaves each attendee’s personal […]

At the risk of sounding overly blunt, anyone who aims to ‘make’ any product go viral might as well set out to beat up the Atlantic Ocean with bare hands. That is frankly the kind of control you can expect to have over the outcome. The Shinder dating app also conclusively proved that any product’s virality comes with its own Pandora’s Box of delicate consequences to manage. Few rollercoaster rides quite compare to the meteoric rise of a product’s notoriety on the back of instantaneous, ubiquitous visibility, but leveraging that sort of feverish chatter into long-term growth requires some mindful […]

8 Public Speaking Mistakes That Will Get You Fired in 5 Seconds Flat

Professional public speaking isn’t for everyone. The nonstop travel and constant meticulous creative fine-tuning can leave even seasoned lecturers wondering what dissuaded them from a less exhaustive career path.

Instead, they set out to walk onstage alone night after night to enthusiastically address and inform crowds of strangers willing to part with hard-earned money and precious time in exchange for a singularly inspiring learning experience. Let us suppose that you explore the paid speaking circuit and decide that the life-consuming preparation that accompanies your performance just isn’t paying the […]
