Leadership & Communication Insights

Dear ,

Welcome to the new edition of the Insights.

The feature article in this newsletter is about Self-Leadership. I present you seven metrics and strategies, with inspirations from Jerry Seinfeld, Warren Buffett and many more.  

I am traveling quite extensively over the next weeks for various keynotes in European cities, and it would be great to catch up with you there.

Also very excited to announce that I will be speaking again at a TEDx event this spring. More news to come and via Social Media channels

Because the last event was sold out, I am hosting another version of my most advanced speaking master class, called “The Inspirational Presenter”. It will be on April 15th in Brussels. See details below. Would be great to meet you there!

Check out as well the articles in the section "Links worth clicking". On top of some impactful articles and resources I have added a link to a hilarious video called "The Expert" which I highly recommend. 

Wishing you a great start of the week!

Kind regards,

Lars Sudmann

Featured Article: Seven metrics for Self-leadership

Jerry Seinfeld was once asked what his advice for aspiring comedians was. His answer? "Don’t break the chain. Write comedy EVERY SINGLE DAY, even if it is just one single line." The same holds true for all of our efforts and plans. My recommendation: Pick one thing you want to focus on and do something every single day. More metrics and strategies in this new post here:

Do you want to inspire others? Do you want to take your leadership skills to the next level? Then this masterclass is for you.

It is the highest-level session and most advanced masterclass that I offer.

Highlights and Flow of the Day

  • How great speakers inspire
  • What are the patterns of inspiration
  • The 5 H of inspiration for your next presentation:
  • Head: How to appeal to the head and present wow data. Learn how to “dance with data” and present complexity in an appealing way.
  • Heart: How to appeal to the “heart.” Advanced storytelling techniques, visual story development and more.
  • Humor: Learn the patterns of humor and how they can be applied: Yes, also you can include humour in your speech, but it has nothing to do with telling jokes. Did you know that humour, inspiration and presentation success are highly correlated? Read this analysis here.
  • Heavy Duty: Inspirational Presenters link their topics to the big picture. Learn strategies on how to do that in the most engaging way.
  • Hand: We get inspired if things get done, if people get moving. Learn strategies to bring action to your presentation.
