"What you Dream is what you DO - so Dream BIG!"
Delighted to welcome for the 1st of the ALL NEW for 2023 "The Good Listening To Show: Stories of Distinction & Genius" the wonderful, wise and inspiring serial entrepreneur and polymath David Hieatt.
David writes wonderful copy on LinkedIn and Twitter and as co-founder of the global Community "The DO Lectures" - Curated gatherings that will inspire you to DO - he reaches an extremely large audience indeed:
"DO exists to help you get from where you are now to where you could be. Our talks will help you make that journey. There is gold here. Stories with heart, ideas and insight. These talks can be your mentor. Some have been watched over 150 million times.
The stories shared at DO always bear witness to what’s happening in the world at large. They are told by some of the most progressive DOers and disruptors of our times. But even so they don’t paint perfect pictures. They are raw, honest and vulnerable. Human. Like us all.
And they are free. No advertising, no sponsorships, no hidden agendas. Just incredible, inspiring talks.
The idea is a simple one. We gather together the world’s great DOers, disruptors and changemakers, have them share their hearts and stories, and encourage others to go and DO amazing things too.
It’s been an incredible journey, and over the years many great mavericks and masters have stepped foot on the DO stage to tell their tales. From craftsmen to technologists, digital entrepreneurs to food champions. All are challengers of thought. Provokers of debate. Firestarters, risk-takers and gamechangers.
But most of all they are human. And we challenge them as we challenge you. We ask them to give the talk of their lives. One they haven’t done before. One that makes them open up and be vulnerable. That shares pain as well as progress. Heart and hope, as well as ideas and insight.
So, not easy. But then, our speakers have never settled for easy"
