This is a keynote that I did for Regents Business School and it requires a little bit of introduction because this was the very last thing the students attended before the end of their term and so (as you can imagine) the students were very excited and there was a lot of different stuff going on (Eg. side conversations, people texting each other and on phones), it was a lot of what we would call distraction (we’re talking about students between 19 and 22 years old) and it’s the last day of school so (as you’ll hear when you listen to the recording) part of what I’m doing is the conveying of information but a big part of what I’m doing is engaging the students, getting their attention and bringing them together as a group so that I can help them have an experience of what I’m pointing to. So I’m busting out everything that occurs to me in the moment to get people’s attention, get them to focus, bring them into the present etc. The vibe and style of the talk may be a little bit different to some of the things you’ve heard from me in the past but I thought you might find it interesting to see what it’s like because my basic idea when I’m talking to any group is how can I make it easy for them to look in the direction I’m pointing and step one with that is always to get their attention and meet them where they are then lead them in the direction I’m heading. You can make up your own mind about how well that worked and maybe make your own guesses about at what point in the talk we started to drop into that deeper space together. By the way, if you’d like to book me to do a keynote for your organisation or your event just submit your request here.
