12: How To Stand Out With Speaking And Be “Non-Obvious” with Rohit Bhargava

What connects a panelist at marketing  conferences to attorneys in the courtroom?  Rohit Bhargava’s experiences taught him to craft a powerful story with highly targeted subject matter in order to stand out from the pack and be “non-obvious” with his speaking.  Rohit believes the deconstruction of complex ideas into more accessible speech has a creative value for marketers and attorneys alike.

Rohit’s Background:

Rohit Bhargava is a keynote speaker, best-selling author, and professor at Georgetown University who empowers his audiences to think about how they can leave a lasting impression with their own speaking.  With a degree in English, Rohit taught himself to do computer programming which indirectly led to his first job in the marketing industry.  As he progressed in marketing, he began attending conferences and speaking on panels where he realized that he was more memorable and effective as a speaker when he abandoned the conversational tropes and voiced substantial opinions not necessarily in keeping with typical sentiment.  Building from that, Rohit has done numerous keynote speaking engagements, including a TEDx talk and he has written 5 best-selling business books.

Topics Touched On:

  • Speaking powerfully to your audience; establishing credibility through vulnerability
  • Value of merging creative and technical thinking for marketing and legal purposes
  • Being a lifelong learner and learning things “you shouldn’t know”
  • Connecting the ideas of reputation and personal brand
