I admit, I’m a bit obsessed with the musical “Hamilton.”
I watched it on Disney+ the July 4th weekend it came out and was instantly transfixed.
I knew I would like it, but didn’t realize I was going to love it.
Today I’m going to talk about “Hamilton” the play and the production and what we can learn from it as speakers.
Why study the play?
After all, as speakers, we’re not acting in a play or singing in a musical. We’re speaking to grow our audiences, build our businesses, generate leads, get paid.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen a lot of so-so and boring presentations, both in person at conferences and, especially this year, virtually.
Your presentations shouldn’t be flat – they can be fun and engaging and they should be layered – and speak to universal themes.
In this episode, I’m going to share what I saw as I watched “Hamilton” as well as what I learned from reading the amazing book called “Hamilton: The Revolution” that gives behind the scenes of the creation and production of the musical.
You can listen to this episode whether you’ve seen Hamilton or not. If you haven’t, this episode will hopefully inspire you to watch it.
