Live In Your Listener's Brain: An Evening with Helen Zaltzman

All of Helen Zaltzman’s possessions are in a storage unit in suburban London. She has lived out of a suitcase for the past two years and counting. But really, it doesn’t matter, because she has a cosy residence inside the brains of listeners all around the world.

Drawing on twelve years of podcasting experience, Helen will talk about ways to speak on mic to make your audience feel like they’re right there with you; how and why to have fun with your subject matter while still taking it seriously; and how to build a relationship with your listeners to the point where they let you live rent-free in their brains.

This event is free! We encourage you to RSVP. Refreshments provided.
