321. How to Tell a Great Story and Help Audiences with Chris Field
How to Tell a Great Story and Help Audiences with Chris Field
How to tell a great story and help audiences are two of the strongest skills a speaker can have in their repetoire, and someone who knows full well how to do both is Chris Field.
If you’re a long-time listener of the show you’ll remember Chris from a previous episode (123, which you can find here). But if you are new and/or haven’t heard Chris before, he is a successful keynote speaker who founded a non-profit organization over a decade ago. With his background in that area, today he mainly speaks to associations and other non-profit groups.
Creating and running his own non-profit gave him a sense of purpose and led him to the topic he mainly speaks about now: empowering audiences to disrupt for good, something he has been doing most of his life. In fact, being a disruptor has been such a notable part of his path that he wrote a book called Disrupt For Good.
On today’s episode of The Speaker Lab, Chris tells us why disruption can actually be a good thing, how the pandemic has shifted his business and how he made the adjustment, and why it’s cool to be in several industries.
Join us to hear that and more on the 321st edition of The Speaker Lab!
