Neil Gordon – Communications Expert

Sound Matters episode #088 features Tom’s compelling conversation with communications expert and speaker coach, Neil Gordon. Neil’s message is valuable far beyond those who work as professional speakers. Neil knows how to simply, yet effectively hit at the heart of the communication process that truly lands with audiences, regardless of messaging. Neil’s core message stresses Why Content Is About Empowerment, Not Information… In this in-depth conversation, I ask Neil to take us through his professional career path and process to arrive at the place where he’s able to influence and impact his clients so profoundly. No matter your specific profession, we’re all in the communications business. So listen carefully to this fascinating, and very transparent discussion with one of today’s leading communicators as we dig into some more marketing and motivation “sound matters”…
