About this event

Debbie Millman has been hosting her popular, award-winning podcast for over sixteen years and has interviewed some of the world’s most creative and inventive artists, designers, musicians, writers, performers and more. In her upcoming book Why Design Matters: Conversations with the World’s Most Creative People, you will see examples of her masterful and engaging interview skills.

In this first ever webinar, learn how to interview with soul, stamina and scintillation.

Takeaways include:

  • how to start the interview and immediately put your interviewee at ease
  • how to ask original, never-asked-before questions
  • how to listen
  • how to research your interviewees
  • how any good conversation is like a game of billiards
  • how to approach difficult topics
  • how much is too much
  • how to leave the audience satisfied with what they’ve heard

Along with this webinar of interviewing best practices, join Debbie for a Q&A about her upcoming book Why Design Matters: Conversations with the World’s Most Creative People and get a sneak peak on how it was done.
