Making Conversations Count


Episode 24

We reflect on how this business man helped his poorly mother solve a household challenge which led to a career of making conversations about ideas count

We will all eventually lose our parents. Sadly, it’s a part of life.

Not many of us have to suffer that loss at the tender age of just six.

We couldn’t think of a nicer guy to help us with our goal of making conversations about ideas count.

Truly, if anyone can hold a conversation about ideas, it’s Nik Venios of the Ideas Agency.

Did you know that NASA has a genius test?

During this episode, you’ll find out all about this, and the fascinating stats surrounding it.

Not least fascinating is the surprising revelation about the age group that tops the score board!

There’s also something called a conversation safari.

That’s a new one on our very own ‘Conversation Queen’ Wendy Harris!

Yet, it makes perfect sense to get people in your team to have a purposeful conversation to solve the problems that are in actual fact, great gifts.

With references to luminaires like Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Edison this episode is loaded with really interesting insights and valuable conversations surrounding ideas.

We learn how we need creatives to navigate the opportunities waiting for us.

Nik also talks about the Ideas Academy.

Let us know if you find it interesting!

Nik’s Mum was poorly when he was 6 years old and he would figure out ways to help her, which leads us to Nik’s conversation that counts.

NASA, it seems you missed a trick with our Nik!
