Welcome to another very exciting Episode  of "The Good Listening To" Podcast with me Chris Grimes!

Please welcome to the "GLT Clearing" one of my very favorite people: The adorable, the lovely - the energetic power house - the vivacious - the eccentric  - the truly barking and bananas - the roller-coaster that IS:  Actress Kim Hicks!

Kim Hicks is 7th Generation Actress, Bristolian - "One Woman Show" specialist - and a very, very natural raconteur...

"Once the Genie is out of the bottle - it's quite difficult to get the cork back in!"

Chortle!

What a great laugh was had by us both!

Kim and I also have the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in common, where we both trained as Actors.

A lovely, rich and energising conversation indeed!

You can also "Watch/Listen" to Kim's time in The GLT "Clearing" here:

So - thanks for listening! 

"The Good Listening To" Podcast is the series that features "The Clearing":  Where all good Questions come to be asked and all good Stories come to be told!

Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing - and with Stories rather than Music!

There are some lovely juicy storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:

The Clearing itself - A Tree (where we get to "shake your tree to see which storytelling apples fall out, in the form of a lovely storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1") - some Alchemy - some Gold - and finally a Cake with a Cherry on Top!

Also think about William Shakespeare - and about Jaques in "As You Like It" in particular:

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages..."

And as my Guest in the Podcast:  Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story!

Who are you? What's your story? And what 'life-lessons-learned-along-the-way' would you like to share with us? And just to get bit "existential on yo ass" too (!) what would you like your legacy to be?  How would you most like to be remembered?

And all my guests have at least 2 things in common: They are all Creative individuals  - and all with an interesting story to be told!

If you'd like to find out more, then please do check out my websites www.secondcurve.uk + www.instantwit.co.uk - and there's also a dedicated "Good Listening To" Facebook Group c/o the link above.

Plus if you'd be interested in the experience of being given "a damn good listening to" yourself, or you'd like to explore the idea of some Personal Impact Coaching from me CG - to help level-up your confidence, communication, and personal impact c/o my online Coaching proposition: The Second Curve "Zoom Room" - then, by all means, do get in touch via any of the usual social media channels (see above) or you can email me at [email protected]
