    Introducing the Leadership Communications podcast

    Introducing the Leadership Communications podcast

    This year marks three decades of working in leadership communications. And to celebrate, I'm launching a new podcast: Leadership Communications with Rob Cottingham. It's going to be 30 short episodes with some of my best advice on crafting and delivering great speeches, drawn from 30 years of helping leaders tell their stories from the stage. You can check it out on my personal website, or subscribe on Apple/iTunes or Spotify. I'd love to hear what you think!

    Social Speech Podcast, Episode 11: Maddie Grant

    Maddie Grant of DC-based SocialFish has done a lot of thinking about connecting online audiences with speeches, panels and presentations. More to the point, she's done a lot of doing, including convening one of the most ambitious online conference approaches I've seen: NTC Online, the digital version of the Nonprofit Technology Conference held every year by NTEN. In our conversation, she offers some great advice for event organizers, speakers and anyone who wants to use digital tools to help online and offline audiences learn.

    Social Speech Podcast, Episode 10: Holly Ross

    This episode features Holly Ross from NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network. She's a great speaker in her own right – and every year, NTEN hosts the Nonprofit Technology Conference. It's a huge gathering (but remarkably relaxed and collegial), and we talk about what it takes to connect that many people online at a conference - and how speakers can make the most of a connected audience. Some links and resources:Holly Ross on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedInNTEN on the web, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ – if you work in nonprofit technology, you have to check these folks out.

    Social Speech Podcast, Episode 8: Nancy Duarte

    It's hard to say just where Nancy Duarte has had the biggest impact: as the architect of Al Gore's presentation on climate change in An Inconvenient Truth... as the author of two profoundly powerful books on crafting and delivering presentations, slide:ology and Resonate... ...as the co-creator of Duarte Design, a firm that has been redefining the art and science of presentations for nearly a quarter-century... ...or as a pioneer in integrating social media and public speaking around the central driving idea of story. Our conversation lasts less than 10 minutes, but Nancy packs a lot of insight into how the backchannel changes the balance of power between speaker and audiencehow speeches can take on a life of their own as social objectshow even harsh criticism can make you a better speakerand how dramatic tension and release can lend your next speech the power and impact your ideas have been waiting for.

    Social Speech Podcast, Episode 7: Chris Brogan

    For several years now, Chris Brogan's blog has been a must-read for anyone who wants to use social media productively. Add his thriving practice as a speaker, the fact that he co-founded PodCamp, and his New York Times bestseller Trust Agents (cowritten with Julien Smith) along with two other books (Google+ for Business: How Google's Social Network Changes Everything and Social Media 101)... ...and his now-legendary 2009 presentation at New Media Atlanta, where he brought an angry backchannel into the open and won it over... ...and you have a shoo-in for the social speech hall of fame — not to mention someone well worth listening to on the subject of social media and public speaking. Especially because he'll explain what you, as a speaker, can have in common with the Grateful Dead.
