Cricket umpire, snooker player, and jazz musician are all titles I’d love to have associated with my name but in my case I can primarily claim four:
- marketing consultant
- radio announcer
I’m part of this podcast because even though I have spent the past 15 years as a marketer and keynote speaker, radio has remained in my blood; I was warned it would when I started at 5MU shortly out of high school.
Steve Davis on radio and podcasting
I love that communicating through sound alone is a restriction that can prompt presenters and listeners to use their imaginations.
Sadly, I find the majestic medium of radio too drab and predictable these days, which is why I became an avid podcast listener back in 2006 and hardly ever listen to broadcast media these days.
I realise I have just raised the bar for our podcast by making these comments public but that is no different than Peter Goers writing a review of one of my Adelaide Fringe productions in the early 90s only to have his own productions critiqued by me years later for Five AA.
Such is life, especially in our beloved Adelaide.
The other lives of Steve Davis
In my day job, I run Talked About Marketing where I work with organisations to develop better marketing content, present workshops on social media and communication, deliver keynote speeches, and help nurture (or produce) effective writing.
I also head up Baristador Coffee, a small, top-shelf coffee service for espresso aficionados in Australia, especially those drinkers who like double roast and seek out FLAVOUR ahead of CAFFEINE. You can read more about it and even join our next group roasting here.
Apart from following our podcast on twitter, you are welcome to follow my personal account @stevedavis through which I comment on wine, coffee, marketing, Adelaide, skepticism, and parenting – although not necessarily in that order.
