The cream rises to the top. If you build it, they will come. Content is king. And so on. We’ve heard all the clichés and have internalized the message…if the “stuff” you’re putting out into the world is good enough, how you present it doesn’t really matter. The only problem is, it’s totally wrong. Even the best idea, product, project, or cause will fall flat if it isn’t communicated effectively. In this podcast, hosts Tammy Palazzo and Tim Wikstrom talk to a wide range of amazingly successful executives, business owners, and leaders about how learning to communicate changed their lives and their fortunes. Every episode gives us stories we can emulate and lessons we can follow.

I started listening to this series while on my 30 min commute, but I found myself grabbing my phone to take screenshots of time-stamping so I could go back and replay key points that were a-has for me.
So, for me, a fabulous series with a balanced interview approach, but meaty enough content that it’s a note-taking series for me.
Good stuff that reaches well beyond a formal presentation application. The content of this series applies in many professional and personal communication moments.
