Thought Leader Growth | Todd Cherches

Overcoming being an introvert to become an effective speaker and author.

An interview with Todd Cherches about starting out working for various TV studios and growing into a speaker, author, and consultant.

Today’s guest is Todd Cherches, the founder of Big Blue Gumball, a consulting firm specializing in leadership development, management training, team building, public speaking and coaching. Todd is a TEDx speaker and the author of VisuaLeadership!

Todd shares his story of the winding road that took him from his dream of working at TV studios to becoming a thought leader. We explore the challenges introverts face and how to grow as a speaker and trainer. Todd explains how his book was born from ten years of notes and 2000 pages of content. He shares valuable advice for getting your idea on the page and hitting a deadline.

Three Key Takeaways from the Interview:

  • When opportunities present themselves, thought leaders need to jump on them even if they feel out of their comfort zone.
  • Introverted thought leaders can be excellent speakers with time and practice.
  • Getting a book written on your thought leadership will require dedicated time to write without distraction.
