We are all in the persuasion business.

Or so says my guest for this episode, Andrew Thorp. He's a Ted Talk speaker and trainer in the applied story telling arena. ‘Applied story telling?’ I hear you ask. Yes. That means it’s storytelling applied to business not storytelling for entertaining your kids or mates down the pub. Storytelling for businesspeople who need to be heard, get their message across, and be liked. Andrew shows them how to use stories to be persuasive. He likens it to a soft form of sales training. Fascinating. He also calls himself The Multi Story man due to his endless library of stories (not parked cars). There are many similarities between what Andrew, and I do and so this felt like more of a conversation than an interview, but we did manage to touch on his golfing career, excruciating experience as a quiz show contestant and misunderstanding with a dragon!

Johnny is the host of Speaking Influence, the podcast about the psychology and application of influence and persuasion in life and business. Speaking Influence sits within the podcast global top 10 and so for me this was a fabulous opportunity to find out the some of the secrets of podcast success from a master. Johnny is not just a very successful podcast host, he's also a persuasive presentations coach, a professional speaker on topics like podcasting for thought leadership and ethical persuasion, and an online coach and course creator. Our conversation covered an array of topics. From monetising your podcast, using your influence and rhetoric for good (or evil?), the joys of being 1st class cabin crew and of course, stoic philosophy :)) A fascinating mix. Enjoy...

Power2Speak, the podcast with Janine Coombes

Power2Speak, the podcast with Janine Coombes

November 1, 2021

Janine Coombes is a marketing and advertising specialist with the self-titled job description of Chief Offer Creation Genius. She works with service-based businesses to turn their lukewarm offers into sizzling hot must-haves. Janine is known on social media for her colourful, humorous and unashamedly positive videos and posts. She tells me how some misogynistic feedback to a colleague led to her dressing up in twin set and pearls for her first tongue in cheek video. However, despite the fun and frivolity, there are many words of wisdom from Janine as we discuss ‘wants’ vs ‘needs’, finding your brand voice and clarity in what you are selling. Enjoy!

If you'd like to connect with Janine go to https://janinecoombes.co.uk or connect with her on Linkedin. 

If you would like to hear her talk LIVE, either virtually or in-person then check out Atomicon 2021, where she'll be one of the speakers on 9 November.
