In this episode, I chat with the speaker, author, entrepreneur and (American) football coach known as Coach Cam. He has seamlessly blended his professional sports career with motivational speaking, applying and sharing all the philosophy and wisdom he himself has received and delivered in his sports coaching career. As someone who started his entrepreneurial journey age 9 and has gone on to become a social entrepreneur with a portfolio of businesses. He is now becoming known as a motivational speaker who is committed to helping others step up their lives to new levels of leadership and success.We discuss his recipe of faith, stoicism and self-talk, his journey to entrepreneurship and how his career as a football coach has set him up and inspired him to take a powerful philosophy out into the world in service of others.You can find out more about Coach Cam and his new E-Course Win the 1st Quarter of Your Day: Playbook for Wealth, Health, & Success at Coachcamcourses.com and I highly recommend that you do.If you like the show, remember to subscribe and stay tuned for future episodes, like next week, when I will be chatting to the 2001 World Champion of public speaking, Darren Lacroix who has been a powerful coach and teacher to me through his online courses and workshops.If you want to get the free download of my new ebook 'The 5 Key Beliefs of Bulletproof Business Speakers' click here
In this chat with lead generation expert, fellow podcaster and super-powered networker Grant Finlayson from Motor Mouth Marketing. We ended up discussing all sorts of topics and what we have both learned on our journeys to where we are right now. What started out as an interview became a boomerang interview as Grant turned the tables and asked me the things he wanted to know. Whilst I do guest on other people's shows, this was the first time I was interviewed on my own show. It made for a unique episode and a great discussion.Find out more about Grant on his website https://onlinebizninja.co.uk and/or connect with this master networker on Linked In.Discover the top 5 essential mind hacks for business speakers with my new ebook and make sure you're subscribed for next week's episode with motivational speaker and the boss of starting your day right, Coach Cam.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

Continuing my series on using humour in presentations, I was fortunate enough to get to chat with comedienne, rapper, actress, presenter and businesswoman Melanie Gayle. We dive into what it takes to be funny on a platform and how the most important thing can just be to give it a go and get started.Melanie has a wealth of experience and she shares some of the lessons she's learned along the way, as well as giving us many funny moments to enjoy. It was a delight to chat with Melanie and she's a great example of how someone can evolve and grow in their lives to be more than just one thing, as on top of her career as a performer she also runs a talent agency.We talk about mental flexibility and adaptability, we talk about the value of comedy courses and just going for it as well as many other aspects of performance. Mel brings the energy and you'll love listening as much as I enjoyed getting to chat with her.Join us for a great conversation and a lot of laughter on this episode of Speaking of Influence.Follow and connect with Melanie:www.melaniegayle.co.ukwww.melaniegayletalent.comMel's Vlog https://youtu.be/Hw-ZnRWezrcMel's comedy reel https://youtu.be/8IrOzf1pkWkand be sure to subscribe for the next episode of Speaking of InfluenceBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

It's been said that having your own book is the best business card there is. It classifies you as an expert and it sets you apart from the vast majority of people who are unpublished. It can help you get booked more as a speaker, it can help you get paid more as a speaker, coach or trainer and it can dramatically grow your following and brand but you need to do it right.My guest this week is the lovely Juliet Clark who is the owner and founder of Super Brand Publishing. Juliet works with coaches and speakers who are looking to write and publish non-fiction books in their market and she cheerleads, helps plan and gives a tried and tested process that takes away any guesswork and gets your hard work as an author paying off for you by launching the right way.We had a lot of fun chatting together and at one point we even discussed Tiger King on Netflix... but mostly we chatted about publishing.See if writing a book is the right thing for you in your business right now. Take Juliet's quiz http://www.promoteprofitpublishquiz.com to find out...Next week my guest is professional actress and comedian Melanie Gayle. She was great fun to chat with and is a super talented lady. This was a part of my putting humour in presentations series and is one not to be missed. Make sure you subscribe to the show and never miss a guest!

I have a list of people I really want to have as guests on my show and Daniel Priestley has been up amongst the top names on that list for some time, so you can imagine how happy I was when he agreed to be a guest on my show. It's proof that sometimes just asking will actually get you a great result.I first met Daniel years ago when he was running Triumphant Events and have followed him online ever since. His incredible books like 'Key Person of Influence', 'Oversubscribed', 'Entrepreneur Revolution' and '24 Assets' are all great reads and for me personally, 'Key person of influence' has been inspirational and incredibly useful in laying out Daniel's 5-step process to becoming a notable person in any industry.In this chat, I got the opportunity to ask Daniel about his entrepreneurial journey, his first steps into public speaking & presentation work as well as an answer to a question I had about his 'Key Person of Influence' book that has been bugging me for a few years now, as I thought I was either missing something or it wasn't really there... You're going to have to listen to find out...If you want to become a Key Person of Influence if you want to make a dent in the universe, visit Dent Global to find out more.You can also find Daniel on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In under his name.

What does stoic philosophy have to do with public speaking and presentations? More than you'd think.I recently read 'How to think Like A Roman Emperor' by expert in stoic philosophy Donald Robertson. It surprised me that he wrote a fair bit about orators and rhetoric of the sophists and how public speaking was an essential leadership tool in ancient Greece and Rome for those in positions of power, especially an emperor. It's not so different today. The ability to persuade and influence still lies largely with those who speak from some kind of stage.I asked Donald if he'd be willing to be a guest on my show and to my surprise he readily agreed. I learned a lot from our conversation, as will you I'm sure. I know I will be referring back to this conversation for a long time to come, as we discussed so many areas, like decatastrophising our thinking, cognitive behavioural therapy, hyperbole in modern life and a number of other profound areas.I highly recommend Donald's book 'How to think like a Roman Emperor' and have previously published a book review for it on my YouTube channel. On his own website Donald has several courses and many materials you can check out to bring a little more capital S Stoicism into your life and philosophy. https://donaldrobertson.name/There is an opportunity for all of us to join the 8th International Stoicon Conference in October 2020 which this year, due to the pandemic, is a virtual event. You can find more information here https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/stoicon-2020-virtual-conference-tickets-103616048390?fbclid=IwAR3I195u0qu6ddKd1rIAKwYPayb8FEoAPHKHr84RWHdf72PKuj8gjkuxfFMI encourage you to check out Donald's Facebook group on Stoicism, which is where I first encountered him https://www.facebook.com/groups/StoicismI hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. If you'd like to catch the video version on YouTube, here's the link https://youtu.be/YKNbD_TvZHQ and please like and subscribe the channel whilst you're there.Next week we'll be celebrating the 50th episode of Speaking of Infuence with one of my top wish list guests Daniel Priestly, author of How to be a Key Person of Influence and other great entrepreneurial books. He's also co-founder of Dent Global and an excellent business speaker. Don't miss it!Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched! Start for FREEDisclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Continuing my 'Dark side of influence and persuasion' series, I was lucky enough to be introduced to an amazing lady whose family joined a personal development based cult in the 80's and the effects this has had on her life since. That lady is the incredible Brooke Walker who has gone on to heal her life and help others to improve and heal their lives through meditation with her company 100 Years of Bliss.Brooke talks about life inside the cult as a child, when she first realised she was in a cult, when she made the decision to leave and also how she ended up going back after she escaped. We also spent a good amount of time talking about 'spirituality' and what we would each define that as, and also the benefits and life healing Brooke has experienced since then.Brooke has over 20 years’ experience as a business leader in the areas of management, law firms, health, and leadership. Her experience in psychology, finance and the healthcare industry has made her an asset to businesses and the holistic views she brings. Brooke has spent more than a decade teaching, speaking, achieving sales goals and leading in these fields.She is the founder of 100 Years of Bliss, a wellness company focusing on the culture and health of other companies. Today her passion is to Empower, Educate and Advise companies on the benefits meditation and mindfulness has to increase health, productivity, sales and the bottom line.Find out more about Brooke on her website 100YearsofBliss.com where she offers listeners to this show $50 off her meditation program.You can also connect with Brooke on social Media:Facebook -  https://www.facebook.com/Bliss100years or https://www.facebook.com/breakingthecultLinked InTwitter YouTube If you'd like to know more about influence and persuasion skills and the art of speaking and presenting, visit Present Influence.

I am truly privileged to have Dr Joanna Martin as my guest on my podcast. Jo was my trainer when I first learned neuro-linguistic programming and she was also one of the people who taught me presentation and public speaking skills. Since she is the person who inspired me to want to become a speaker and trainer, it was a delight when she agreed to come on the show. Jo is a renowned visionary, coach, speaker and entrepreneur Her message and work have directly impacted over 120,000 people on four different continents. She initially qualified as a medical doctor and spent a number of months in oncology where the death of a favourite patient provided a wakeup call to get her life “on purpose”. Then, she changed her career and was accepted to the Actors Centre Australia.  She went on to study human psychology, behaviour and growth and in 2003 launched her own coaching company in Sydney, with no network and no business experience.  Within a year her business was thriving, consulting with the likes of ANZ bank, John Fairfax Publishing and eBay.From there she worked as Head of Research and Training at one of the fastest-growing personal development companies on the international stage and in 2008 launched her own business Shift Speaker Training, which she took to 7-figures within just 12 months. There she shared her speaking success secrets with over 23,000 business owners over four years. Her evolution continued in 2014 when she founded One of many, to help women to step up into leadership and increase their impact without burning out. One of many has so far reached over 70,000 women around the world. Jo is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning speaker, a diplomatic wife, a sometimes-too-tired mother, a protective sister, and a caring friend. Don't miss this fascinating and inspiring conversation and find out how Jo is just one of many women changing the world.For anyone who gets/got a bit lost when we talked about values systems, it was referring to Gravsian Values as defined by Clare Graves in Spiral Dynamics. A very worthwhile and surprisingly accessible book. The book Jo spoke about in relation to this is called Reinventing Organisations by Frederic Laloux.Jo's FREE gift to you is Seven Rituals to Calm the Daily Chaos: https://oneofmany.co.uk/rituals/Here are some ways you can connect with Joanna Martin on social media:Facebook - business page: https://www.facebook.com/OneOfManyWomen/  LinkedIn - business page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/one-of-many/ LinkedIn - profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/joannamartin/ Instagram - business page: https://www.instagram.com/oneofmanywomen/Instagram - profile: https://www.instagram.com/drjoannamartin/Hope you enjoy the show.

Nobody wants to look like a fool. Or do they? As a speaker or presenter, if you are not able to play and clown around then you are missing out on a whole range of presentational flexibility that may well be doing you and your clients/audience a huge disservice.When I first encountered my guest Jessica Breitenfeld, I was attending a Toastmasters convention and competition in Malaga (where I was competing and won first place in my category) and I attended a workshop being led by Jessica which was really all about emotional flexibility. I asked Jessica to give us a taste of that and she does, as well as a whole lot more.Jessica Breitenfeld was voted the top speaker in the Barcelona division of the Toastmasters World Championship of public speaking in 2020. I was fortunate enough to see her compete and she really knows how to deliver and how to tell a story. She's entertaining, clever and has a unique playfulness that makes her a delightful guest and great to watch.You can watch the whole show on YouTubePlease, remember to like and subscribe.Jessica advises that the best place to connect with her right now is Linked In. You will be welcomed with open arms and possibly a big red clown nose. You can also check out her website.Enjoy the show and keep an eye out for much more coming on the topic of humour and comedy in presentations as I speak with many other entertaining professional speakers and professional comedians, in some cases both in my new 'Leading With Laughter' mini-series.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

Do you ever want to use humour in your presentations but feel a bit too scared? It can seem daunting. Things seem to either be funny or not, and easy to get wrong. Why is it that the North American spelling of humour drops the 'u'? I want to start a rallying call to put the U back into North American humour... or maybe I'll just take a quick nap first?My guest this week is a highly experienced speaker who is known for bringing the humour and delivering exceptional and engaging talks. He's a hall of fame speaker and he travels the world helping companies find the benefits of humour and helping people to stop taking life too seriously.We got to chatting about the theory of humour and what makes things funny but most importantly, how you can start bringing some humour into your own presentations.Enjoy the listen but look out for the YouTube episode, as Michael got up to a little mischief that you'll only see on the YouTube edit.To find out more about Michael Kerr go to MikeKerr.comMichael says “Life is too short to work in a soul-sucking, fun-sucking workplace, and life is too short to take yourself seriously!  If you take yourself too seriously the irony becomes that no one around you ends up taking you remotely seriously!”  You can find out more from Michael in his book 'The Humor Advantage' and from his writings at his Humor at Work blogSubscribe for more great episodes coming up and feel free to connect on Linked In.

My last episode with Dana Pharant has so far been my most downloaded episode of the podcast series where we talked quite a bit about her experience as a dominatrix and how she brought those lessons into her brand, presentation style and business consulting. She's an incredible woman who stands in her own personal power and truly owns the title of badass. In a chat with Dana, I mentioned that I was looking for a guest who had the experience of being in and then leaving a cult. It so happened that Dana is such a person and she was more than happy to return for an episode of my 'The Dark Side of Influence' series.The conversation is powerful and informative and I hope it gives insight to the covert ways in which cults operate and control their members and also hope and resources to anyone leaving a cult or religion behind or perhaps thinking of doing so.You can find out more about Dana on her website danapharant.com and download a free copy of her book Badass Intuition hereResources on cults and support:Steve Hassan's website Freedom of Mind The Freedom from Religion FoundationFor more information about how cults like JW's operate, go to https://www.jwfacts.comFor a good video on how to get out of an organisation like the JW's, go here

One of the most distracting things you can do when giving any kind of presentation is to be shuffling about or unconsciously moving around your stage area.

I was lucky enough to have my friend Suraj agree to be a guest and the conversation we had proved to me that it was a very wise decision. We first met back in our days of being trained in Neurolinguistic Programming, hypnosis and presentation skills for public speaking among other things. Suraj has always been incredibly kind and generous with his time and his knowledge and he shares a lot of great insights and personal experience in this episode.I first knew Suraj as being a marketer and teaching online marketing and social media marketing. He runs one of the largest and most successful meetup groups in London for Entrepreneurs, called Entrepreneur Jam. He's spoken internationally to corporate and general audiences on a variety of topics, he has his own podcast called The Entrepreneur Jam Podcast and he embarked on a physical transformation a little over a year ago, going from being a slightly chubby guy to becoming insanely ripped and fitness magazine cover star material.We talk about highs and lows, what he's working on now and how Suraj values impostor syndrome and gets it working for his benefit.Don't miss this fun and engaging chat with an incredible entrepreneur and truly authentic guy.Find out more about Suraj on his website https://www.surajsodha.com/You can connect with him on Linked In (but be sure to send a message with the request) Suraj's book recommendation is 'The Go-Giver' by Bob Burg and John David Mann.
