This is the last episode of Road To TED for 2013 so Dino and I thought we’d take a look back and do a little year in review.
I say “little” because we launched the podcast only 9 weeks ago. And before we launched it, we were in production for another 2 months prior. So it’s more like a third of a year in review.
Special Guest John Bates
In this short time we’ve met some amazing people through our interviews and learned more than we anticipated. So we felt it would be apropos to look back and reflect on episodes past. And what better way to do it than to bring back our very first guest from episode number 1; executive speaking coach, John Bates.
We’re grateful to John for joining us for a second time to share his wisdom and humor. He’s not only a wealth of knowledge about public speaking, he’s just a lot of fun to talk to.
What We Learned
At the end of each episode we kick our guest off and then as Dino likes to put it, talk about them behind their backs. One of the most popular parts of the show, this is where we share with each other, and you the listener, what we’ve learned from our guest.
And in the past 10 episodes we have learned a lot. We’ve learned about methods, mindsets and preparation related to public speaking and what it takes to give the most important talk of your life.
Along the way, we also learned about topics ranging from nutrition to time travel. That’s what makes this podcast so amazing for us to record.
We are so grateful to you for tuning in to our little show. It has been extremely humbling to hear from all of you and hear what you have gotten from this show. We have been blown away by the amazing response. In fact, one listener told us she is using our podcast to prepare for her TEDx talk.
We wish everyone who has been listening a very happy new year. We’re looking forward to seeing you on the Road To TED in 2014.
