036 The Rising Power of Audio

If you need to build trust, explain ideas in depth, convey the personality and commitment of yourself or others, then audio could be the perfect medium for you. Debbie Aurelius, owner of Peppermint Fish communications and host of the podcast Be A Bigger Fish is an expert internal communicator and a passionate advocate for audio. In this episode, we explore why and where audio is most effective, and the benefits that can accrue from this increasingly popular communication channel. 32 mins 51 secs https://peppermintfish.com/ Be A Bigger Fish podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/feed/id1447019043 www.voquinexus.com

036 The Rising Power of Audio

035 Beyond the Rainbow

Neil Reavey knows what it is like to have to hide the real Neil from colleagues in order to fit in with “the norm”. As a young gay man going into a career in science, he experienced discrimination in various forms. That led to him feeling pressured into “covering” in order to be accepted, like when he would mug up on the latest football (soccer) news in order to be able to join in with the blokey banter at work. So when the chance came to take an active role in helping change the work environment so that other people from the LGBTQ+ community taking up careers in science do not have to put up with the same iniquities he had suffered, Neil was ready to step up to the challenge. Even though taking up a key position in the Proud Science Alliance took him into leadership situations and to levels very different from those presented by his scientific job. In this episode Neil talks with Paul about his early experiences, and his desire to bring about permanent change in the workplace, and how what the Proud Science Alliance is doing is making sure organisations don’t just garner a bit of good PR by sticking a rainbow on their logo, but that meaningful and sustainable change occurs. The views and opinions Neil shares in this podcast are entirely his own and were not given as a representation of any of the companies mentioned in the podcast. 35 mins 22 secs https://www.proudsciencealliance.org/ https://www.voquinexus.com Contact Paul at paul.gisby@voquinexus.com

032 Why do experts struggle to tell stories? Part 1

We have interviewed many experts. Most of them excellent. They know their stuff and what they want to pass on to others. But, frequently when we ask them to illustrate a point with a story they struggle to come up with a concrete real example. Why is this? In this two-part episode, we explore possible explanations and ways that we use to get around it. 14mins 36 secs

031 Ways to kick start your brain

Ever had that piece of work that you just can't get started on? You keep putting it off, and putting it off, knowing that you need to get down to it, but your brain is just stalled on this one. Well, we definitely have had that problem. But the good news is there are ways to overcome these hurdles, whether it's employing a new "toy" or changing your location it can be done, and we're happy to share what's worked for us.

030 The Comms Company turbo-charging leadership communications

Not long after Lynne Ashcroft-Griffiths set up AG Communications, she and her team realised that if they were to help their clients make their leadership communications really fly, they needed to offer more than just the creation of great content and upgrading leaders’ communication skills. They needed to help leaders in all aspects of their leadership development; because the most effective leadership communications are delivered by people who are all round strong leaders. Nine years on, AG Comms has established a reputation across a diverse spread of business sectors for being a partner of choice to help individuals and organisations with their leadership and communications journeys. In this episode of Talking Leaders, I spoke with Lynne and two members of her team, Katie Humes and Hugh Stuart-Buttle to find out more about the range of expertise AG Comms offers, such as Business Psychology, Creative Media production, HR Business partnering, Organisational Culture management and Change management to mention just a few. We also talked about the AG Leaders Club, an exciting new venture where individual leaders as well as whole organisations are able to access the full range of AG Comms’s expertise and experience to continually advance and upgrade their leadership skills. 26 mins 17 secs https://www.agcommunications.co.uk/ www.voquinexus.com

027 Is the way you sound when you speak enhancing or damaging your leadership presence? Speaking to Influence Part III

In Speaking to Influence, Laura Sicola defines three key elements of developing a strong leadership voice: Verbal (what you say), Vocal (how you say it) and Visual (how you look). In the third extract of my conversation with Laura, we take a look at Vocal, including avoiding ‘vocal fry’, the dreaded “up-speak” and why watching and listening to recordings of yourself is so important. 21 mins 51 secs For more infohttp://vocalimpactproductions.com/ Voquinexus, we get you heard www.voquinexus.com
