Heidi Welsh Feedback
A recent episode featured Heidi Welsh, the Executive Director of a research firm. Obviously, Ms Welsh is one of the sharpest and most in-the-know experts in the field. But the interview was almost unlistenable.
Her voice lacks confidence. She’s “ums” constantly. She “up talks” at the end of her sentences, making definitive statements sound like meek questions.
Finally, she delivers information without insight. I appreciated the data. But what do you think it means, Ms Walsh? Why is it important? Where are we going from here?
A big miss.
