“Audience journey is basically in any kind of presentation, or conversation or speech. It's the moment by moment, emotional, mental journey that the audience takes, while listening to what you're delivering. So, it's the actual in inner exploration, the path they take from where they are, when they come in, to the conversation, or the presentation or the speech to where they are when you finish. It's that path.”

“I took them on a journey themselves from when I didn't know what they don't know, to where I found out what they want to know. So, they came with me on that journey. So, part of it was the delivery and the way I styled it, but I think also, you know, I think I spoke to and about a huge part of the world and something that they're all feeling and going through.”
