The Wind in the Wildfire – why Alex Baisley is about to take off!
There was a slight tremor in his hand as Alex Baisley walked on stage. I could relate. Speaking in front of a thousand people would be easier than speaking in front to this room. It was late in the afternoon on Saturday Jan. 29th and Alex had just been asked to address the Evolutionary Business Council in the final slot of the day. In the audience were some of the most influential speakers in the world – people like Harrison Klein, Shawne Duperon, Joe Noonan, Jennifer Hough, Charmaine Hammond, Tad Hargrave and Scott Schilling, just to name a few.
For 20 minutes Alex transfixed the room with his east-coast accent and brilliant wit while he told the story of the two barbers. The result was so moving that when Alex finished, some of the top influencers in the world leaped to their feet in one of the most enthusiastic standing ovations I have ever seen.
Google Alex Baisley and you’ll see that speakers from all over are now chatting about him in their social media, blogging about him and creating buzz all over. The best example of this is that colleague Tad Hargrave (who has a huge following of his own – you want to check this guy out!) filmed the talk and posted it on his blog http://marketingforhippies.com/alex-baisley-and-the-two-barbers/ (GREAT blog by the way. Follow his RSS!)
