Episode 035 Can You Be Too Thoughtful? with Nigel Risner

Nigel Risner is a motivational speaking who uses humor and real-life examples to guide professionals through adversity and change.

His memorable title of Zookeeper is part of his storytelling talent to help people in the workplace understand communication styles based on fun, animal characteristics. In his popular book, It’s a Zoo Around Here, the four communication styles described as lion, elephant, monkey and dolphin show how teams can benefit from the diversity of team members.

He’s a former president of the London Chapter of Professional Speakers Association, has been named Speaker of the Year by the Academy of Chief Executives, Vistage and Footdown, and is a Companion of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.
