On this show we explored the art of business communication with poet Bob Hill. Fascinating conversation that turned up some rather interesting insights on business communication.
Bob started The Mighty Pen in 2011 in order to encourage people of all ages, cultures and abilities to share in the joy of writing creatively.
As a writing facilitator Bob works for different organisations on a consultancy basis providing writing and poetry workshops. These organisations include the National Trust, youth theatre groups, reminiscence groups, Libraries and museums.
Bob also hosts corporate workshops where employees and managers can learn better communication skills by creating their own poetry and short stories.
Bob has published two anthologies of poetry; ‘The Stand Up Poet’ and ‘Jack Hughes is Dead’ and is currently working on a third anthology planned to be available as part of the commemorations of WWI.
As well a writer and workshop facilitator Bob also performs at festivals and spoken word events and has worked alongside John Cooper Clarke, with whom he swapped dietary tips, and John Hegley, with whom he discussed favourite pens. Bob is a regular contributor to The Claudian Review and and is the editor of Poetica Icognita; both online writing and poetry journals.
As a former DJ and music promoter Bob now also runs several poetry and spoken word events in the south of England including ‘Talking Loud and Telling Stories’ in Bournemouth and ‘Beatnik Boulevard’ in Banbury.
When not writing poetry or doing other literary stuff Bob will be found sampling Laphroig whisky and listening to 1980s jangly guitar music whilst pretending he could still be Morrissey.
In this little 2:58 second snippet Bob gives us an insight into how poetry works inside business. Fascinating.
Bob tell us how businesses have improved their meetings since being trained in this 0:54 second clip.
