INTRODUCING JOSEPH MICHELLI
Before you watch our conversation–with Joseph interviewing me, but with both of us participating actively–I’ll introduce you to Joseph Michelli. Known as an expert in “customer experience,” he has written best-selling books about leading corporations, including The Ritz-Carlton Company, Zappos, Mercedes-Benz and Starbucks. Additionally, for decades Joseph has served as a keynote speaker and consultant internationally.

His latest book–Stronger Through Adversity–will become available on Amazon December 22. The book features what Joseph learned by interviewing more than 140 business leaders across the world–resulting in guidelines for remaining resilient during Covid-19.

You’ll see that this interview lasts almost an hour, so you might choose to listen over a span of a couple of days. I recommend taking careful notes as you listen.

High-Energy Entrepreneur Responds to My Comments About Speaking

stzanko

When my recent online newsletter talked about the 3 messages every speaker sends, my longtime friend–also a colleague I admire very much– Linda Sztanko from Wellington, Ontario responded with these comments:

FANTASTIC Words of Wisdom Today.. and I couldn’t agree more. So many times I have gone to hear speakers who are charismatic and engaging on the stage, but when the spotlight is off… so is their interest in YOU! As long as they are selling.. they are smiling and happy and ALL about the audience. But when you get the opportunity to talk, many (not all) are so busy looking around the room to see if the “important”people are there, and NOT engaging a real conversation or even a polite acceptance of a thankful heart, from the “little nobody” in front of them. SHAME… That “nobody” could turn into the “important person” one day and will remember the bad behavior bestowed on them.

She concluded: When you are the person people are coming to hear…I believe it is your duty to give ALL THE VALUE and ATTENTION to everyone who comes into your path.

MY ARTICLE LINDA WAS RESPONDING TO
My July newsletter featured an article about the 3 major ways a speaker impresses his or her audience: actions before the speech, during the speech, and after the speech. You can read my advice about that topic as it appears in EzineArticles online:
