Rich Mulholland, is the founder of Missing Link, a presentation powerhouse celebrating 22 years of saving the world from boring presentations by empowering ordinary presenters to give kick ass presentations. Missing Link recognizes the problem of people being bored to tears, as an audience member in a presentation, a conference, a meeting, or even reading an email you’re not supposed to be included in. Why? Because the message being delivered is either misguided, misinterpreted, or just plain boring – and we hate it. Missing Link wants to help you create memorability, and slay boredom from annual results, launches and keynotes to communicating on the ground.
Rich was a rock and roadie turned entrepreneur and has written three books Legacide, Boredom Slayer, and Story Seller. Rich is also a global public speaker that in 2019 alone spoke in 26 countries on 6 continents.
Mike and Rich cover a ton of great stuff in this episode like narrowing the gap between your expertise and where your customers are, what prevents people from becoming entrepreneurs, how punk rock music influenced his business mindset, thoughts on life purpose, holding friends accountable, overcoming humiliation, your role as a paid speaker, how to choose a speaking topic and why you need to be ready, why you don’t need to be an expert to give a great speech, the importance of resetting your audience, the power of online presentations to engage with audiences, the future potential of virtual reality and augmented reality for online presentations, and much more.
