Todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Mr Martin Shervington, who is a bit different to what you would expect him to be.
If you think of an expert in Google +, who knows more about the product than it seems Google do themselves you would probably think of a teckie guy, mad hair, glasses…you get the idea.
You wouldn’t think of someone that loves writing comedy with a psychological twist, and likes nothing more than jumping up on stage and wowing the crowds with a few well placed rib ticklers.
Even studying at the San Francisco Comedy College for six months to fine tune his craft
Well that is the type of guy that we have on the show today, who started his life in Wales, and now fly’s around the world supporting his clients, who in the main fail to grasp the power of Google+
He teaches the processes that make this platform potentially the most under utilised area of the web today.
He uses his studies in psychology to create a blueprint for us to follow to understand how organisations like Google use psychology and how we…the internet uses don’t, but should.
He is a man who Guy Kawasaki states is “one of the most clever and hard working people you’ll find.”
So where does he believe his true talents lie?
Being an engaging and informative public speaker, executive coach, business consultant and marketing psychologist, standup comedian or windsurfing trainer.
Yep, you didn’t see that last one coming did you!
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Mr Martin Shervington.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Martin Shervington such as:
How surfing is a great metaphor for success, as it teaches persistence, commitment, focus, skill and a myriad of other things that we need to demonstrate everyday.
How he loves to build in “play” to his work and make things a game. It is then that everything appears to come together the most and he enjoys it most.
How he didn’t understand how google works at first, until he understood that it is an ecosystem that is changing the world.
When given the chance to become either Facebook supremo Mark Zuckerberg or comedian legend Billy Connolly he chose…….you’ll have to listen to find out.
How he would describe the success that he has achieved at this point of his life as “Happiness”
