Today, I’m sharing a very special episode with you. This week we’re looking back and listening in on a virtual book signing I did with the amazing Mari Carmen Pizarro about my book, The Influential Voice.


Mari Carmen is the Founder of Whole Leadership Systems, a boutique consulting firm dedicated to developing High Performing Executives and Leaders. She has over 25 years of experience in Human Resources Leadership and High Performance Science and is an expert at integrating emotional intelligence, influence, and inspirational leadership. 


A seasoned Keynote and TEDx speaker, Mari Carmen captivates audiences all over the world, bridging the multicultural and diversity gaps with her content. 


It was truly an honor to spend an evening with her, and with many of you, discussing The Influential Voice, and I can’t wait for you to hear our conversation again now.


In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • Why it is crucial to say what you mean and the practice of choosing your words carefully
  • One of Mari’s favorite sections of my book and one of mine
  • How Mari is acting as an influential voice in the world and where she believes this influence begins
  • What it means to be an influencer and the responsibility that comes with that
  • Becoming conscious of your power and influence
