Podcast Ep. 98: Be Normal, Not Common with Travis Thomas

travis-thomas-liveyesand-claimthestage-public-speaking-podcastYou’ve heard “normal is boring.” On today’s episode, find out why that’s not actually the case! A must-hear for all public speakers of any level.

Speakers often mistake their “norm” as a commonality that they share with many other speakers. In reality, your “norm” is actually your unique DNA. Every speaker has their own unique story/journey and learning how to tell it is absolutely crucial in today’s public speaking environment.

On today’s show, I interview Travis Thomas, a professional public speaker and seasoned improv performer. Travis has performed in front of thousands of people and trained dozens of organizations like the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, US Soccer, Gatorade, PepsiCo., and Under Armour.

On this episode, you’ll learn how:

  • being “normal” can actually be the key to your success
  • to use your story to create a connection with the audience
  • to use trust, vulnerability, and authenticity to be a better public speaker
