The show is all about speaking to the people behind Learning, Culture, Innovation and Design and the Employee Experience. It's a small moment in time that allows the listener to hear the world through your thoughts, experiences and ideas
Basic Show Structure
The chat won’t be chronological however I will tend to bounce all over your bio for the first half of the chat talking about you and your life. Again, this isn’t all professional and if the chat goes off on a random tangent that’s completely fine too, hell if we find ourselves talking about aliens then so be it (it’s all about you first and foremost). The main thing is that we want the listeners to fall in love with the messenger (you) first then the message (product) second.
In the second half of the chat we will start to talk about your products. I will close up with a few rapid questions, I will then ask you if you have any final asks, recommendations or next steps, again this is an opportunity to mention your products. I will then ask where we can go to find out more about you i.e. Twitter, LinkedIn.
Some people tend to like to prep for these things, others not so much, With that in mind I will always tend to ask the below as the first and second questions:
What is your logline?
What did you want to be when you grow up?
Loglines are tricky things your life into one sentence. It's identifying the crucial story elements and leaving everything else out, something that will sizzle and pop but also, crucially, something that tells the audience what you/your life is all about. I have found answering the below questions helps us to get off on a flying start
My audience love that the show feels authentic, real and unedited, this is why all other questions are not shared. However, if you want to get a few of the typical types of questions please do check out the show

We understand that sometimes things change and you may need to amend the date or postpone due to unforeseen circumstances but we ask that you try to give us a minimum of 3 days notice to replace your time slot, and only cancel at the last minute if it’s absolutely necessary so we can maintain our strict posting schedule.
We will reserve a few spots for last minute cancellations at the end of a season but we cannot guarantee a rebooking.
