We first met Keelan at the Corporate Podcasting Summit in 2006, where he presented a case study with client and IT services provider Keene. It was a fascinating look at the using podcasts of people’s unscripted stories (in this instance, experienced sales staff talking about their successes and misadventures) forcorporate training. He’s a good storyteller himself, and is gifted at asking the questions that draw out interesting tales from the people he records. Learn more and see examples here.
