Speaker A:

Welcome to Presentation Skills Q and A. I am Martin.

Speaker A:

Lynnsko.

Speaker A:

Hi, Karina.

Speaker B:

Hi, Martin.

Speaker B:

How are you today?

Speaker A:

I'm fine.

Speaker A:

And yourself?

Speaker A:

Did I pronounce your name right, Karina?

Speaker B:

Yes, you did but your own name there?

Speaker A:

Yes, Mortin is English and Mortin in Swedish and yeah, your last name?

Speaker A:

My last name.

Speaker A:

Lindeskog in English or Lindeskog in Swedish?

Speaker B:

Now it was clear and distinct and that it should be I have thought about

Speaker B:

something now we are starting to shake hands again are you doing that, Martin?

Speaker A:

This elbow thing or what not could be a bit complicated so I do that but I also

Speaker A:

thinking about so called the Risk or sanitized and you could wash your hands and whatnot but

Speaker A:

it is a gesture and symbolic thing to shake hands.

Speaker A:

To greet and say your name and listen especially to answer your partner's name that

Speaker A:

you meet and greet yeah.

Speaker B:

I'm doing that good because I want to talk about this that it starts with the

Speaker B:

first handshake and when you say your name of course it depends on the situation and so on

Speaker B:

but it's important that you say hello properly and I think it's more important than we think

Speaker B:

so this elbow thing maybe it makes the meeting you have the meeting from another ankle if you

Speaker B:

say so because we tell you we tell the other person who we really are when we shake hands

Speaker B:

and say our.

Speaker A:

Names so that's interesting.

Speaker A:

So do you have any advice or tips when you do

Speaker A:

that? At the same time it's multitasking in a way to

Speaker A:

bow manually and look in the eyes and shake hands and say your name it's plenty of things

Speaker A:

I mean we do it naturally and almost automatically but still it's lots of.

Speaker B:

Things going on exactly and that's why we don't think about it but it's fantastic

Speaker B:

if we say our names a little bit slower than we pronounce it more clearly and we

Speaker B:

distinction and that increases your confidence when we do that I must talk about a person

Speaker B:

named Dr. Laura Cicola who I really admire she's founder of a Vocal Impact production and

Speaker B:

she used to say that this is regarding executive presence for example.

Speaker B:

That how you sound your voice with your breath.

Speaker B:

Pauses.

Speaker B:

Phrasing tempo and so on that shows the

Speaker B:

outcome of your communication.

Speaker B:

Person to person so the handshake and to say

Speaker B:

your name properly that makes the outcome what you're going to have for conversation with

Speaker B:

this person and she also says that if you want to sound like a leader with confidence.

Speaker B:

Start by saying your name right I think that makes you get a lot of thoughts and you're you

Speaker B:

know that you are on the same level as.

Speaker A:

The person in front of you depending on the situation.

Speaker A:

The language and so on you could pronounce it in different ways and you could do it in order

Speaker A:

to counterpart to understand it yes.

Speaker A:

I remember that from america.

Speaker A:

When I said my last name, Lindescogg, that was pretty hard for them to get because it's

Speaker A:

different sounds and letters that we have.

Speaker A:

Exactly.

Speaker B:

And we are going to put a link to her doctor, Dora Sela, because I think that is

Speaker B:

nice for our listeners to also take part of her, for example, her Ted Talk.

Speaker B:

So I can really recommend it.

Speaker A:

Great.

Speaker B:

Yeah. And then, of course, we want feedback, isn't it so, Martin?

Speaker B:

We want feedback.

Speaker A:

That's true.

Speaker A:

Constructive feedback in different ways.

Speaker A:

So then I could send you an email.

Speaker B:

Yes, they can send an email info at pip new.

Speaker B:

Info at pip.

Speaker B:

New.

Speaker A:

Yes. And another way also of doing it is so called a feedback loop, according to

Speaker A:

the Podcast 20 initiative.

Speaker A:

So if you download a new podcast app like

Speaker A:

Fountain, you could send a digital telegram with a note with your feedback and input

Speaker A:

questions and whatnot.

Speaker A:

And also a small token of appreciation.

Speaker A:

Like, if you think our content is worth something, then you could send a small micro

Speaker A:

payment called Satushi to us.

Speaker B:

That sounds nice.

Speaker B:

That sounds terrific.

Speaker B:

Feedback loop, you said?

Speaker A:

Yeah.

Speaker B:

Good.

Speaker A:

I will link to that also at value four, value info.

Speaker A:

Very explain this concept called feedback loop.

Speaker B:

Okay, well, thank you.

Speaker B:

Speaker A:

Yes, I say the same.

Speaker A:
