Best Of: Changing the World One Talk at a Time with Devin Thorpe - 227

The Speaking Club: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking

If you’re anything like me at the moment, you may feel torn between wanting to be a global citizen and keep up with the news, and wanting to forget about it all and bury your head in the sand. Our world is facing multiple challenges and at a time when we should be joining together to overcome them, we seem more divided than ever. All of this can make you feel helpless and hopeless.  That’s why I wanted to bring this show back to the top.  Devin Thorpe believes that we do have hope and one person can make a difference. He has a huge mission and a big message because of a promise he made to himself at the age of 11.   After spending many years in a corporate career within the finance function, he pivoted after taking a long hard look at his life, and set out on a new path.  Today, Devin speaks all over the world, sharing his mission and training companies on crowd funding and corporate social responsibility. He is also a regular writer for Forbes magazine and a podcast host.  In this ‘best of’ episode he shares how he got into paid speaking, how it enables him to fulfill his mission and what he does to put his talks together. We also consider how Devin uses humour in his writing and speaking to increase the impact of his message.  Enjoy! What you’ll learn:     How losing something you care about can be a catalyst for a bigger life.     Why it’s important to be conscious of our bias in life.     How Corporate Social Responsibility can increase profitability.     Why it’s good to be polarising to increase the impact of your message and reach the right people.     How Devin transitioned from Finance to paid speaking.     Devin’s process for creating his talks.     Why it’s important to watch yourself back as a speaker to improve your craft.     How you can tell if you’re a good speaker.     Why you should always make it easy for people to give you money.

The Chris Voss Show Podcast – Superpowers for Good: The Skills You Can Master to Leave Your Mark on the World by Devin Thorpe

The Chris Voss Show

Superpowers for Good: The Skills You Can Master to Leave Your Mark on the World by Devin ThorpeOver the past decade, author Devin Thorpe interviewed more than 1,200 people-including Bill Gates-for his podcast. Hundreds of times, he asked, "what is your superpower?" The answers have been so inspiring, he's written this book.He continues his podcast, seeking inspiration from changemakers. (Visit http: //superpowers4good.com.) The focus will be the lessons you can learn from them. Are they superheroes? They are no more superheroes than patience or optimism are literal superpowers.For the past decade, Devin worked to align his journalistic writing-much of it for Forbes-with the principles of solutions-oriented journalism, which focuses on repeatable efforts that provide measurable relief to social and environmental problems. This dogma holds that there are no heroes, examining the processes and tools rather than the people wielding them.Repeatedly, however, Devin found the people were essential to the processes. How do you remove Bill Gates from a story about the Gates Foundation? He isn't a savior. He isn't a Marvel superhero. But there are things you can learn from him.You can also learn powerful and vital lessons from the BIPOC women featured in the book who have been-and will be-guests on the podcast. With this book, the exploration of superpowers you can use to change the world is just beginning.
