Paul Tomes is back! This it the third time I’ve had Paul on the show with me, because… well, I love to listen to Paul talk. :) And, because he has wonderful stories to tell and ideas to share with us! He sent me an email a few weeks back and shared a story with me – and I thought – there is so much good stuff in here, we gotta share it with my movers (that’s you!). So, sit back, take a listen – and enjoy a story by Paul about the power of the metaphor in moving your audience.

Show highlights: On the Power of the Metaphor

[Tweet ""What business are we in for this presentation? In the business of change." @PaulJTomes on @ThisMovedMe"]

Today's show is all about a story that Paul shares of a coaching moment with one of Paul's speakers. This story was inspired by the movie

As It Is in Heaven - a Swedish film from 2004

that moved Paul greatly.  And then, he used the inspiration from that movie to create an inspiring moment for a speaker.

I always enjoy talking with Paul - and sharing his insight here with you. We didn't get to a This Moved Me Moment so we could focus on his story - so tune in next week for more of our regular TMM Moments!

And - THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS!

Dr. Nick Morgan (a guest on This Moved Me) created the Presentation Prep Course. It's like having Nick coach you - which is no small thing! Nick is the ultimate pro - and I myself have walked through this course. It's so incredibly helpful and full of insight and tools. If you are prepping for a presentation and can't afford the costly hours of hiring someone live - check out this e-course!

And, I cannot forget the editing geniuses at We Edit Podcasts! They are so on the ball.  Just last week I hadn't heard from my editor - which was strange - and so I sent an email expressing my concern. I got a phone call back from the FOUNDER, assuring me all was well. That's what I call service. Please trust me - I have saved so many hours by having these folks take on the nit-picky task of editing my shows for me. If you have a podcast - or want to create a podcast - this is sooooo worth it.
