‘How to be relevant’ with Mark Levy

Mark Levy interviewed me recently about ‘keeping your head when others are losing theirs’ and although a great privilege, I needed to turn the tables on Mark as he is one of the smartest people I know!

Mark explained to me that he was giving a big talk on ‘Relevancy’ and during 11 years of the show, it was clear to me that this was a great unexplored topic!

So what are the different forms of relevancy and how do you ensure when speaking to others, selling or marketing to them that you truly understand what is relevant to them? Such that you get into their mindset?

Mark is a brilliant conversationalist, consultant to global brands, iconic TV shows and individuals like Simon Sinek. He has written for the New York Times, is a multiple author, Hall of Fame Consultant, educator and speaker. He also creates magic tricks and shows including co-creating ‘Chamber Magic’ that has run for over two decades and is New York’s highest rated live-show, even higher on TripAdvisor than Hamilton.

Join us as we explore Mark’s unique take on ‘relevancy’ and how to get more relevant in order to succeed in today’s world.
