Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.

My guest this week is also known as The Pitch Whisperer, and shares the lessons learned from his award-winning sales career at Conde Nast. Through his “Better Selling Through Storytelling,” sessions he shows companies’ sales teams how to become irresistible so they are magnetic to their ideal clients.  He has a best-selling book by the same name and is also the host of “The Successful Pitch” podcast, which is heard in over 60 countries. He has been interviewed by Larry King and appeared on TV as an expert on “How to Ask for What You Want And Get A Yes.”

Please welcome John Livesay
