This Moved Me stage

How much time does it take to prepare for a talk? The basic answer is: A LOT. and, MORE THAN YOU THINK . and, DEPENDS ON HOW GOOD YOU WANT TO FEEL WALKING INTO YOUR TALK. BUT, MORE. IT TAKES MORE. Perhaps this is not the message you’d like to get about this. I mean, we are all trying to find short-cuts in our work to save TIME and …

MMM On a Memorizing Trick

It’s Mini Moved Me day! Today I want to talk with you about a little memorizing trick I use when I’m trying to get the content of my talk to move from my head and really sink into my body. Whether you are refreshing a talk you haven’t done in awhile, or you are currently building a talk and aren’t delivering it yet – there’s a simple trick you …

TMM Rob Bell plain blog image

That word – TIME – is tricky for “productive“ and “busy“ people. But the thing is that we cannot produce something NEW – bring new insight (aka, WISDOM BOMBS) – without it. This is part three in a four-part series about what I learned sitting in the audience of the talented Rob Bell. Check out parts one (on space) and two (on resonance) here. That’s the only word that seems fitting …

IT COMES TO YOU!   When I was in grad school, finishing up my Master’s …

MMM Creative Process Part One

How many of you have gotten STUCK before?! Struggled with making the new?!  Felt at a creative loss?! Felt tired, bored, uninspired, alone!? Ugh, yes. Me too. A few months ago, I got a wonderful question from my friend (well, I like to think we’re “friends” – do Twitter-friends count?) Grant,  who asked how he, as a pastor and frequent speaker with a demanding schedule, stays inspired, energized, creative. …

About This Moved Me


This Moved Me is a podcast and blog about the art of public speaking. As a speaker and presentation coach, there's nothing I love more than to dig into how we can move an audience. Because I believe that a good talk can move the world. If you do too - you're in the right place! If you want to create a talk that will move the world - welcome! And if you want to join in the conversation on how we can do this more and better - I'm so glad you're here. Learn more →

Connect with other speakers and creatives who are creating talks that move the world.
