Our latest podcast episode on How to Own the Room (available on all podcast platforms) is an interview with Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton about their experiences with public speaking. We cover confidence, stress, preconceptions that women face as speakers, handling judgement and criticism and more. For a behind-the-scenes take on the episode, plus all the notes and advice from the interview including my notes and advice, you can sign up for a Cut-Out-and-Keep takeaway guide here. I designed this PDF as something people can download and hang on to (as a digital file or as a print-out) so that if they’re listening to the podcast while they’re out and about (or even — God forbid — running, as many people seem to be when they’re listening to this podcast) they have all the notes saved and written down in advance. Enjoy!
Very excited to feature Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton on the How to Own the Room podcast. They were open, funny, candid and surprisingly charming. I was expecting some frostiness at some point but there was none — until my final question about whether Hillary is thinking of running in the 2020 election… Check out the podcast on iTunes and all podcast platforms: “Are you owning your individuality? Hillary and Chelsea Clinton talk to Viv Groskop about our narrow notions of what female speech and power should be – and how they must be expanded. They discuss The Book of Gutsy Women (co-authored by the Clintons), plus pant suits, press bullying, Greta Thunberg and Hillary’s very first public speaking “trial by fire”.”
When the dog bites, when the bee stings, don’t feel bad, just listen to Julie Andrews on the How to Own the Room podcast! This was an extraordinary encounter with a woman whose iconic voice has not changed in seventy years… I loved meeting her and was thrilled by her humility and resilience. Listen to the podcast on iTunes and all podcast platforms: “Have you done your homework? Actress, singer and writer Julie Andrews tells Viv Groskop that you never know when something quite wonderful might happen – so be prepared. She talks being inspired by the excellence of others, being flattened by a helicopter – and how discipline is the foundation that leaves her free to fly.”
