Whether you’re a climber or a writer, or in business and need to speak in public as part of your job (or all of the above!) it’s worth listening to Andy’s humorous and dry insights.

Andy discusses:

  • the economics of earning a living as a public speaker

  • the process of writing, editing and self-criticism
  • speaking and presenting in public: taking people on a journey
  • how trends and changes in technology affect authors
  • moving from traditional publishing to self-publishing
  • and there’s plenty more in the interview to make you think – and to make you laugh.
