This is Part Four  of  a long ‘perfect storm’ trip. Originally it was just a trip to the big European radio convention to speak.  Then research and strategic meetings were scheduled days before and after.  And then another big research meeting in Mexico.  So this trip is almost three weeks long.  It starts in Spain and then moves to Paris, Milan, Slovenia, back to Paris, and on to Mexico.

Paris

This is Day Ten of my 20 day trip. Look at those eyes.  I am presenting research to two morning teams in Paris.

Alexis, one of my Paris morning shows.  Just 23, first time morning host, and really really eager to be great and win.  He is watching a second by second graph of how listeners react to one of his segments.

Alexis, 24 hours later at lunch (with Sylvain, who translates for me).  This lunch was all coaching, turning the torture of the day before into a clear plan for improving and growing his show.
