Best Moments

“I think firstly you can repurpose a lot of the content that you create. So you and I, we record episodes for our respective audio podcasts and then from there you can create soundbites.”

“I think Online events are important. I think try and get your name out there, perhaps by submitting guest posts to different places. HR Gazette is always looking for guest authors.”

“I’ve got a bunch of personal heroes who I’ve been lucky to interview some of those, including William Tinkup. I saw William Tinkup once present, he spoke for half an hour, and used one slide – he was amazing.”

“Just putting yourself out there and making that effort, not just lurking. Getting out and doing it.”
