On episode forty of The Presentation Boss Podcast we hear from one of our big wish-list guests, Grant Baldwin. Kate and Thomas first came across Grant through his hugely popular podcast The Speaker Lab which discusses the business of speaking as a professional but also introduced them to many invaluable ideas, tips and guests. When it comes to the mindset around making the decision to speak as part or all of your career, we knew there was nobody better to have on the show; even if that meant a 1:00am call to make the time zone difference work out.
