71. Lindsay Adams OAM on Relationships and Professional Speaking

All rise for episode seventy-one of The Presentation Boss Podcast. Today on the show we have fellow Brisbane-boy Lindsay Adams. And if you’re wanting to hear from someone who has been there, done that and got the T-shirt when it comes to speaking, then listen in close today!

Kate and Thomas first met Lindsay almost by chance at a Professional Speakers Association meeting, and soon after learned the magnitude of his accomplishment. Also, plenty of previous guests have made sure we never forget about him!

Chatting to him was relaxed, authentic and full of lessons, stories and great tips (Thomas has already implemented some since the recording). A man who worked in the public sector, started his own business and has since become a global speaker on relationships in business. We know you’ll pick up plenty to make this listen very worthwhile.
