Start Your Journey with John
"I’ve just finished interviewing John Bates who I find to be one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever interviewed who is someone who is working with the art of communication, successful communication, focusing on how to give a really good TED talk and how to take the concept of the TED talk and apply that to any presentation you might do. He talked about the importance of… how most of us think it’s the logical thing that is going to move us, but it’s actually the biological thing that we need to understand, and I just found that really great. I literally sat here at the end of the interview and said, 'I’ve been doing professional speaking and training speakers for years, but you have really tapped into the neuroscience and the neurobiology of who we are and how we communicate and how people persuade people' and so forth and I was very impressed. I’m sitting here thinking, 'I need to take that guy’s workshop, and have you as a consultant.' So, I’d take time to work with him, to check out his work. He’s quite an amazing guy and he can help you be more amazing too."
