[Podcast] How Do You Show Up? with Kevin Carroll

I had the surprise pleasure of meeting Kevin Carroll last month when he gave his PATH to Professional Presentations to an auditorium full of students at SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design), where he plays his favorite role -- that of "Katalyst."

I guess I'm a bit out of the loop because, although I had heard of him and I knew he had been a HOW Design Live speaker in the past, I have to admit, I didn’t really know who he was.

But now I understand why the line to see his presentation was out the door.

So of course I followed up with him and invited him to be on the podcast.  

I had no idea where this conversation would go -- and it went somewhere I hadn’t imagined. We talked about:

  • how to connect with the whole room (especially the people in the way back) when you speak to groups
  • how to turn your attendees into storytellers who carry your message beyond the presentation.
  • how to blur the lines between work and play
  • the difference between “owning a business” and “having a business”
  • how Kevin's own business shifted when he found the way he works best
  • and most important, how to show up, despite the distractions of technology and life 

    Kevin is all about connecting with people -- he’s not the “sage from the stage.’  He practices what he preaches, which makes him an excellent (and very generous) networker and collaborator.  

    Here's my favorite quote from our conversation:

    “Always be in beta, always improving, always updating.”
