How to tell a great story and help audiences are two of the strongest skills a speaker can have in their repetoire, and someone who knows full well how to do both is Chris Field.
If you're a long-time listener of the show you'll remember Chris from a previous episode (123, which you can find here). But if you are new and/or haven't heard Chris before, he is a successful keynote speaker who founded a non-profit organization over a decade ago. With his background in that area, today he mainly speaks to associations and other non-profit groups.
Creating and running his own non-profit gave him a sense of purpose and led him to the topic he mainly speaks about now: empowering audiences to disrupt for good, something he has been doing most of his life. In fact, being a disruptor has been such a notable part of his path that he wrote a book called Disrupt For Good.
On today's episode of The Speaker Lab, Chris tells us why disruption can actually be a good thing, how the pandemic has shifted his business and how he made the adjustment, and why it's cool to be in several industries.
