For as long as he can remember, author, entrepreneur and Hall Of Fame speaker Michael Aun has been breaking unwritten rules. Decades before the now-common conference closing video montage, he created his ‘visual extravaganza’ for his audiences using 35mm photos. He was the first Toastmasters International Speech Contestant to NOT speak at the lectern. And years before it was popular, he purchased his own wireless lapel microphone for his speaking engagements. Today he talks with Mark and Darren about thinking ahead and being innovative, while sharing solid ideas to make us all unforgettable!
