EP378: Andrea Driessen - The Secrets To Improving Your Communication Skills

“I am just obsessed with helping people get results, because otherwise why are we reaching out to the community?”
- Andrea Driessen

The first port of call when looking for a business to support our needs is often a quick Google search. The words, pictures and videos on that business website influence our decisions long before we ever meet the person behind the site.

Despite this, many of us don’t put much stock in how we are talking about ourselves and what we do online, or in person.

Andrea Driessen, a TEDx speaker and award-winning author, is this episode’s featured guest. She has spent her career challenging people to think differently about the ways they engage with others. Taking businesses from being all about the individual to all about the services they can provide to their clients.

If you are struggling to write about yourself, create videos about what you do, or find it hard to talk to people in a concise and engaging way, then this is the episode to get you thinking differently about how to communicate the why of your business.
