Happy New Year! This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve done a trends episode for the start of the year.
You’d think after what happened in 2020, I’d shy away from projecting trends, but the trends I talked about a year ago surprisingly held up pretty well. (I recap them in this episode.)
What I mean by trends are not fads or cliches or gimmicks.
Trends are like currents or waves of energy that move through our society and affect everything from business and the economy to popular culture and media as well as our politics.
How do these trends impact our public speaking and thought leadership? Because as speakers and leaders, our talks and messages have more of an impact if our audiences can see the bigger picture of what’s affecting them and the world around them.
In this episode, you’ll learn 3 trends (and action steps for each) related to format, audience, and content that you can apply to your speaking and visibility, as well as to your business and marketing strategy in general.
