When TEDxNYU invited me to give a TEDx talk with less than two weeks to prepare, I knew a coach would help. I researched and hired John Bates.
The result? Three TEDx talks and counting, plus one invited me back to lead a work group for TED Countdown. Plus I count him as a friend.
John hosts the Speak Like a Leader podcast. I’m his guest today. We talk about leadership today, what happened to civic duty, how do we restore it, how to we handle lockdown, and more.
Looking to improve your or your company’s public speaking?
I recommend John without hesitation for one-on-one coaching. I’ve also attended his corporate training at a major firm you’ve heard of. He captivated and activated them.
To clarify, I have no financial or business relationship with him. I’m just a satisfied customer. I got good service and results beyond my expectations at a fair price.
