Andrew Deighton

So Who is WendyWoo? Your host, Wendy Harris

 

The Making Conversations Count Podcast host Wendy Harris is the owner of telemarketing training company WAG Associates and Best-Selling Author of the “Making Conversations Count – How to sell over the phone” book.

Wendy LOVES conversations. So much so, it’s her career. Wendy has worked in the sales and communication industry for over 30 years, and now spends her time training others to make their conversations count.

Wendy has been branded as the Queen of Conversation and thrives from speaking to people from all walks of life.

Connect with Wendy on LinkedIn.

It has become clear since the conception of the show that entrepreneurs and business owners alike are eager to hear the insights shared by guest. With experts sharing their own ‘How to’ win in business, it doesn’t always have to be their given topic of expertise either and can be mindset, money or health or all of the above. 

Every guest brings a fresh perspective and leaves listeners and host alike inspired to take action.

Helping Aspiring Entrepreneurs with ‘How to’

 

This show is the perfect opportunity to capitalize on the wide network of business professionals Wendy has built over her career, and record these stories with the aim to help aspiring entrepreneurs. Each person brings a unique take on this topic, opening up the conversation naturally to share both successes and failures.

Highlighting the importance of conversation and communication in the show, Wendy has clear and infectious excitement towards these stories.

Being an entrepreneur is a leap of faith, daunting and not for the faint-hearted. But by hearing other people’s stories, we hope to reduce that fear. By sharing the moments we fear as a failure before a breakthrough we can truly help others. This makes success stories more accessible.

Knowing that business leaders who are now at the top of their game lead real, human lives, with regret, knock-backs, and joy along the way is an encouragement to try it yourself.

Every episode leaves listeners with at least one ‘How to’ do or make a start but don’t be surprised if you take lots of notes as guests turn on their masterclass mode.

 

Wendy’s Reasoning: Why host a Podcast?

 

As Wendy is a professional conversationalist, a podcast seemed a natural step.

The show is based on asking each guest to bring with them a memory of one conversation that created a pivotal moment for them. Whether that’s their personal life or career, it’s something that has influenced a change to help them get to where they are today.

This is an opportunity to record and share influential conversations for others to listen to and take in. Wendy wanted to create a podcast that gave her the opportunity to talk to business-leaders from all industries and learn about their lives first-hand, whilst making it ‘work’!

Love what you do & you’ll never work a day!

Wendy’s inquisitive nature makes for a great interviewer, asking the right questions to delve deep. The magic in these conversations is that every guest shares their pivotal conversation LIVE.

Wendy specifically asks not to be told before they record – it leads to fascinating conversations on the most surprising topics. No subject is taboo and we are extremely proud to be trusted with these conversations.
