Length: 12 minutes, 23 seconds

Turner has a knack “for finding that connection between a message and some kind of visual representation of that, some example or visual metaphor for a message so that people can hold onto it and remember it.” During this episode, we discuss how living life — having a variety of life experiences — can help you find your superpower, as well as provide a variety of true-to-you stories you can use to illustrate your points.

“I’ve seen wonderful presentations with painting and drawing,” he says. Look for “whatever that thing is that may not be related to your topic directly, but which gives you enthusiasm and energy, develop that and you will find ways to find those connections and your analogies and your metaphors will resonate with the audience, because it’s coming from a genuine place in you as a person.”

Joe M. Turner’s Big Tip: “Get some experience in theater. I think some time on stage as an actor is a benefit for everyone. Everyone should have that experience.”
