Speaking Human-First

22-05-2023 • 2 mins

So, you’ve got a world-changing idea. A new way to think about an intractable problem. A framework for understanding people, the planet, or, maybe, the space between our ears.

But getting that idea heard? Well, that’s a challenge.

It’s especially challenging for big thinkers and subject-matter experts. For people like you(!), who are passionate about their ideas but perhaps, less experienced in getting others excited about them.

I’m Mary Knox Miller, and I have over 20 years of experience in communicating ideas. Originally trained as a photojournalist and videographer, I’ve traveled across the globe to document realities from all walks of life. I’ve interviewed world-renowned practitioners and researchers, placing their humanity front and center.

More recently, I’ve been partnering with socially impact-driven leaders on the frontlines of change. I’ve helped academics, researchers, advocates, and practitioners translate their complex ideas into simple concepts. Then, I watch in awe as they connect with their audience.

What do they have in common?

They’ve learned to speak human-first.

They don’t only communicate what they know. They infuse ideas with personal stories while acknowledging the dignity of all life experiences. They craft messages that mean something to the people who hear them.

On my new podcast, Speaking Human-First, I interview thought leaders from across industries and disciplines. I explore all the ways they’ve bridged the gap between solo thinker and public persona – without losing their sense of self.

I uncover specific strategies you can use to communicate your own world-changing ideas. We’ll look at techniques like metaphor, explore the origins of crystal-clear ideas, and think about how to show up in ways that play to our strengths.

My goal is simple. I want to embolden every listener to speak up and contribute to the human cause.

Join me as I learn alongside thought leaders across industries and disciplines by subscribing to Speaking Human-First wherever you listen to podcasts.

And if you know someone with a world-changing idea, encourage them to give it a listen!
