208. How To Be A Better Podcast Host and Have Stronger Conversations

The role of a podcast host is an important one. You are the conductor, the leader, the guide and the facilitator. All those roles can often feel like a bit too many boots to fill. So, how do we keep a good conversation flowing? One that is engaging and enlightening that your listeners and guests will love?

Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast 

where each week Ronsley Vaz, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explores why you should start a podcast; build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more.

If you’re thinking about starting a podcast or simply looking for a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you.

This week Ronsley gets vulnerable with his guest Barry Magliarditi. Barry is the CEO, director and Peak Performance Coach of Game Changers. Game Changers is the place to go for highly driven business owners who want to create change in their business and life through mastering their inner and outer game. 

In 2003, Barry started his first business at age 18 with a Kitchen and Renovation Company. As the business grew, so did his turnover. Before he knew it, he had a staff of 15, a factory and a multi-million dollar brand.

Barry earned some of the most coveted accolades in the thought leadership space. He was awarded the 30 Under 30, 2015 Telstra Business Award as well as the Australian Coach of the Year, 2016 at the Invia Innovation and Excellence in Business Coaching in Australia.

As a way to share his expertise, Barry now hosts the hugely successful podcast, The Comeback Game Podcast. This show aims to inspire entrepreneurs around the world to keep on changing the game.

In this episode, Ronsley and Barry explore the power of vulnerability and the ways you can use that openness to supercharge a conversation. They also discuss the concept of authenticity and why you should bring a little ALF to your conversations.
