Live Business Video Interviews on #Blab in April 2016 . [Updated]

Introducing another great series of Blab interviews with a group of people I know well and respect.

Many I have been connected to over the last ten years , several I have met , all are friends

Topics .. real world practical advice from people at the top of their game

Blabbing for Britain \ DontStreamandDrive \Taking Care of your Inbox \ The Participant Principle \ Thryyve Social Media Engagement Show \ Wiltshire Business Club \ Promoting your Blog Posts \Content Curation \New Software Launch

Blabbing for Britain with Jon reaches show 21 . Join us for video chat in a relaxed atmosphere 7th April 10:00 AM

We discuss everything under the sun and are joined by people from around the globe

Blab is about getting involved , networking , chatting with people from around the globe.

Blab is ideal for interviews , group discussions , tuition and promoting your cause

When we started our aim was to explore Blab ourselves , to promote a site we both enjoy using and encourage people to join us on camera .

We are succeeding

Over the weeks we have made many new friends around the globe and met up on video with people we have known online for years but never spoken to directly.

Blab is more than a video chat site , there is a real sense of community.

#DontStreamAndDrive 8th April 10:00 AM

DontStreamAndDriveDaytclap

SgtTCS says

‘2016 is reportedly the year of livestreaming video. The rise in the number of platforms that facilitate this service has seen a rapid increase in live video.

Driving is a complex operation and needs your full concentration all the time. Livestreaming video has spread into the world of driving. Motorists are livestreaming video as they drive, interacting with comments and essentially taking their focus from where it should be.

The consequences can be fatal. #DontStreamAndDrive day has been set up to encourage the livestream community to pledge to never stream and drive, to encourage others not to and to never watch a broadcast where the host is driving.

Please support me on April 8th.’ You can help by clicking here THUNDERCLAP

Jon and I will be Blabbing for the cause on Friday

Handling Presentation Nerves with Simon Raybould 12th April 7:00 PM

Simon and I have been good friends for over 10 years and he is the author of ‘Presentation Genius’

In our last Blab we covered presenting in general , this time Simon is focusing on ‘Handling Presentation Nerves’ which is something the majority of presenters feel before (and possibly during) a LIVE presentation .

We hope to have as much fun on this Blab as we did the previous one
.
Simon says

‘I started life as a research scientist: I looked at the causes of childhood leukaemia. After 24 years as a researcher I gradually became more interested in how science is communicated (or not) because what people act on is very different from what researchers *know*. Then I got more and more into understanding how *anything* was communicated, not just science. I’ve also worked as a lighting designer for dance companies, written a few books and plays, been a teacher, been a fire-eater and other things I’ve forgotten….. :)’

‘Take Control of Your Inbox’ … ‘Manage Your Email More Effectively’ April 18 5:00 PM

Clare Evans (author of Time Management for Dummies) and I will be exploring the above topic and welcome your questions.

Are you constantly checking your inbox for new messages throughout the day?

Are you tempted to go and read new email when you hear that alert go?

Emails can be a great time waster and provide a constant distraction throughout the day. If you’re going to make the most of your day then one way to increase your productivity is to limit the amount of time you spend on emails and use the time that you do more effectively.

Cendrine and Steven chat with Martin W Smith about Content Curation April 26th 8:00 PM

After our amazing chat with Kelly Hungerford in March , Cendrine and I are now looking forward to chatting with Martin W Smith.

WHAT BENEFITS HAS CURATION BROUGHT YOU?

Beyond the numbers, content curation creates connection and learning. I’ve learned more from Ana Cristina Pratas, Brian Yanish, Jan Gordon, Cendrine, Kelly Hungerford, Karen Dietz, Malek and others than attending expensive conferences, reading preaching white papers or listening to self-serving podcasts.

Being a member of the “curator community” is one of the biggest perks.

Curation is more of a journey than a destination for me. I read something every day I want to STOP THE WORLD and share (lol). I’m honestly all in all the time and that stance is important and why my tribe grows.

Conversation with Michael Szerencsy 27th April 2016 5:00 PM

I cannot say too much at this stage as Michael prepares for the launch of the software , however I will say I have used the Alpha version whilst watching the T20 cricket .. and it rocks !!
