How to Build C-Suite Connections:  Five Steps to Creating a Show             

I meet many people who want to sell their speaking and consulting services to businesses.  The hard part, for many, is how to reach the decision-makers at the top.  Many try writing books, blogging, speaking for free, holding webinars, creating video content, and a variety of other things to provide value. It all works, to some extent, but I have found the most valuable way for me to network is through interviewing on my show.  The interesting thing is, I initially had and still have no intention of using it for anything other than learning about some very fascinating people.  However, because my show has been so successful, people often ask me how I created it.  Therefore, I would like to share some of the things needed to create a show.

Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant, Stuff You Should Know Guys, Discuss Dr. Diane Hamilton’s Book

I am a huge fan of Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant who do a podcast called Stuff You Should Know from HowStuffWorks.com.  On a recent podcast, they mentioned my book, The Online Student’s User Manual.  For those of you who have read my book, you may have noticed they wrote a nice review that I included on the back where they stated:

“Here’s something you should know—Dr. Hamilton has provided the most comprehensive ‘soup to nuts’ book about online education on the planet. It’s a real hand-holder to get you started, guide you to a degree and beyond into the workforce.”  Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant  “Stuff You Should Know” Podcast

I try to listen to all of their podcasts. They recently did an excellent one about octupuses (and yes, that is one way you can say it according to their report).  I recommend listening to all of their podcasts though.  They are extremely informative as well as fun and creative.  You can hear the mention of my book at the 34:34  mark on one of their recent podcasts by clicking here.

Inventions: Good Intentions Gone Bad

In my entrepreneurial and foresight classes I teach, we often talk about how some seemingly wonderful or harmless inventions have unintended results.  I often refer my students to a “Stuff You Should Know” podcast about Agent Orange.  If you are  creating a product or idea, have you considered all future consequences.  I highly recommend reading Jacob Silverman’s article at:  http://www.howstuffworks.com/agent-orange.htm.
