Podcast Interview

I had the pleasure of recording a podcast with Kym Dakin of Voice Into Learning, LLC in July.  She interviewed me about my book on communication styles and how I apply my approach in consulting with businesses and organizations.  Kym was great to talk with as a fellow communication professional.

The recording (click here) is posted on the Association for Consulting Expertise website, which features ACE members talking about their work.
