The Upside of Impostor Syndrome with guest Suraj Sodha

Released Friday, 19th June 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
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. I recommend checking out their website too https://thegogiver.com/
Apologies for some of the audio problems towards the end.

From The Podcast

The number one leadership skill in this communication age is public speaking. It has traditionally been classified as a soft skill but really it’s a meta-skill and a critical ability to have in your business tool belt. Since the days of Plato and Socrates, public speaking (oratory) has been a prized quality in leadership and still remains one of the best ways to gain credibility and followers. The art of rhetoric was born and public speaking has become the top tool for influence and persuasion in the worlds of politics and business. If you want to become a key person if influence in any field, you will need to master public speaking and presentation skills. We now know much more about the tools of influence and persuasion than the ancient Roman orators, thanks to luminaries like Robert Cialdini and Robert Greene, as well as many others. According to Linked In, persuasion was the most important skill to learn in 2019, and for good reason too. We are in a time where most jobs and work as we know it are in the process of automation thanks to developments in AI and robotics. Presentation skills and public speaking sit at the perfect nexus between education and entertainment that will mean those who possess these skills will still remain in demand. In the podcast, we’ll get to speak with professional speakers, as well as professionals who use speaking as a part of their branding and marketing. You’ll hear from psychologists, marketers, agents, actors, comedians and more as we discuss all things relevant to presentation and influence skills, even the dark side. Make sure you subscribe to never miss an episode.
