On this episode of Making Elephants Fly, Terry sits down with Micahel Hudson. There are days when he's in the boardroom helping financial services executives and the next he's in the weeds with an entrepreneur helping them get their message heard. Michael was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at an early age—starting his first business when he was just seven years old. He went on to start a disc jockey business in his teens, and a cabinet and countertop business with his father while in college, before running away from home to become a college professor. Since then he has helped over 3,000 businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and government agencies create their strategic visions and communicate them into existence. After growing up petrified to speak in public, Michael committed to helping people develop their ability to communicate their messages to those who need to hear them. He regularly speaks at conferences and conventions sharing his personal story—revealing the power of personal experience to lead the audience to take action—and has delivered over 8,000 paid presentations across the past 34 years. He's the author of Public Speaker Secrets: 52 Proven Ways to Increase Your Impact Every Time You Speak and spoke at The Thing 2018 in Orlando. Join Terry as he sits down with Micahel as they discuss how to discover the rooms where you need to show up and what to say once you get there.
