087: Paul Tomes - On the Power of the Metaphor
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.

[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
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.
