Podcast Guest Registration

Welcome to This Moved Me! First of all – THANK YOU so much for your willingness to jump in and join me on this adventure! I am thrilled to have you as a guest on This Moved Me – and I cannot wait to dig into our conversation about the art of public speaking and how we can create more talks that move the world.

If you're on this page it's because we have time on the books. Awesome! Once you have a recording date scheduled, please do these five simple things:

1 – Fill out this form which will give us important information about who you are, your particular expertise (beyond what we might know already) – and your social media profile so that we can share you and your podcast with our network once it's ready to be put out into the world.  It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.  Thank you!

2 – Send us a headshot for us to use in promoting the podcast to sally-at-thismovedme.com.

3 – Look over the conversation FLOW so you feel prepared. I use this as a general “guide” in the conversation, but I love it when we veer off course and discover new conversations that are spontaneous!

4 – Be ready with a “This Moved Me Moment” – something that has moved you recently… perhaps a song, a talk you saw, a news story, a movie, a conversation… and we'll talk about it for a just a moment and look at HOW and WHY it moved you.  Fun to find new creative pieces – but also another opportunity to look at the art of moving our audiences.


5 – Please read the promotion expectations and agreement at the bottom of this page. We both want people to hear this interview – and the best and most effective way to do that is for both of us to share it widely and frequently! This agreement will help explain what we do, and what we expect you to do, as well. Thank you!

Some questions that will help you prepare for our conversation if you'd like:

  • Your story as a speaker – what is your background?, how did you come to speaking?  Was it something you always felt came to you naturally, or have you had to work at it?
  • Biggest challenge you face as a speaker – and (how) do you work on that?
  • Greatest strength as a speaker – how do you think this strength was developed?
  •  I believe a good talk can change the world… so what is your purpose as a speaker?  What are you trying to do with it?  (And if you’re not doing that now, what do you want to do as a speaker [to change the world]?)
  • Best talk you’ve ever heard, and why:  [Or, a favorite talk – and why]:
  • A lesson you’ve learned the hard way about speaking: a mistake, humbling, embarrassing, or entertaining moment!
  • Favorite story from a moment as a speaker: (maybe one of those moments that affirmed your purpose?)

General This Moved Me Podcast flow… (We may not get to all of this – and if the conversation flows to other things, that’s totally fine by me! Remember to think in STORY.)

  • Chit-Chat/Sound Check – I press record and jump right in, and edit in an intro later. I prefer a more casual, conversational entrance in, rather than a stinted hand off. Cool?
  • Your story as a speaker – How did you get to this point that we're talking now?
  • We'll dig into 2 or 3 ideas that sit in the intersection between your expertise and the This Moved Me audience…
  • The “Coaches Corner” – What is something you're working on, trying to get better at in terms of the art of public speaking? [This might get cut, depending on the time.]
  • FINALLY: a  THIS MOVED ME Moment (will always end with this)
  • Outro: THANKS!  

Also, here are some simple hints for making the recording sound as professional as possible, whether on the phone or via computer.  (You probably know all of these, but just in case…)  

1 – Turn off all beepy/noisy things on your devices!  Sometimes I forget that my email is on and “ba-ding!” – everyone suddenly knows I got an email!  🙂  I close out ALL of my programs, except for Skype…

2 – No typing on the computer while we talk. This seems obvious, but it’s surprisingly loud in the recording.

3 – Feel free to take notes or mess with your hair anything visual. As of now, I don't do a visual recording, even on Skype – it's just an audio one  – so no worries about wearing your pj’s or putting on that calming facial masque I know you’ve been wanting to use… oh wait, that note’s for me…hahaha…

4 -Most importantly – Just be yourself and have fun!
