    Taming Tigers with Jim Lawless

    Taming Tigers with Jim Lawless

    In this episode of #TheSpeakerShow, Maria Franzoni interviews Jim Lawless.
    Record breaking freediver and voted #1 Motivational Speaker outside of the US in the 2021 Global Guru rankings, Jim Lawless has inspired over a million people on five continents through his presentations and playbook for change ‘Taming Tigers’.
    As CEO of transformation architects Symmetry, my guest and his team have been instrumental in the adaptations of international organisations, fast-growth companies and Olympic Teams. 
    Author of the international best seller ‘Taming Tigers’, he became a televised jockey (and lost 25% of his bodyweight) within 12 months of sitting on a horse. He also became the deepest free diver in British history within 8 months. 
    Both of these ‘impossible’ adaptations were experiments to test and validate the playbook he shares. Both were done alongside his day job - as most transformations are.
    Outside of his work as well as being a Dad, he is a helicopter pilot, kundalini yoga practitioner, free diver and classical pianist.

    Engagement is Everything with Clive Tyldesley

    Engagement is Everything with Clive Tyldesley

    In this episode of #TheSpeakerShow, Maria Franzoni interviews Clive Tyldesley
    Speaking live to an audience of a couple of hundred delegates in a conference hall can be an intimidating prospect. Clive Tyldesley has spoken live to an audience of more than 20 million television viewers on many different occasions.
    Those occasions have included Champions League and England international football matches that have brought the nation to a halt to watch and to listen… (and in the 21st century to also tweet their instant reactions to what they are seeing and hearing).
    He is simply one of the most recognisable voices in sports broadcasting… and equally to ‘FIFA’ game players too. He has won the Royal Television Society Sports Commentator of the Year award 4 times!
    He has been working in television since 1987… 24 Champions League finals… 7 World Cups… been there, seen it, called it.
    His recent semi-autobiographical book provides a fascinating insight into the relationships he has forged with football greats from Clough to Dalglish and Ferguson to Hoddle.

Like joining them for a coffee
