“It’s terrific to be interviews by someone who has spent so much time and thought in preparing what turned out to be a great conversation. Marc read our entire book (and apparently hundreds of other business books) and then thoughtfully picked topics to discuss with us. It was an engaging conversation for us, the authors, and we hope for the listeners, too. Highly recommend!”

Again thank you. Two things particularly stood out from our interview. First, was your research and the depth of your questions. You took the time to study my book and ask the most informative questions. The second was your kindness and consideration especially when my wife got ill and we had to postpone the first interview.

Author of "Entrepreneur To Millionaire”

“What is great about being on Marc Kramer’s show is his knowledge, preparations, and depth of questions. First of all, Marc actually read my book and could map it into his existing knowledge of being a business guru and business book author. Second, his preparation of sending me the 15-20 questions before the event he would like to cover. That allowed me time to prepare and add layers to the answers. And finally, his depth of questions, pulling from different chapters some of the most complex points to uncover with his audience.”

“Marc’s business acumen and inquisitive mind are a perfect combination for podcasts. He asks the question that are on most listeners minds, and the ones they don’t think go ask.”

In a sea of podcasts, Marc's Best Business Minds brings in thought leaders who are actually making a difference. Why are they making a difference? Because they share their experiences from the trenches. You can't get that kind of real insight from people who think about business.

RYAN FOLAND

From start to finish, Marc's professional approach made being a guest on his Best Business Podcast easy. The questions were deeper than surface level, and as a result, we got through a lot of material. His live audience was interactive, and I received multiple follow-ups from those who attended. It's definitely a show I would refer my friends to.

DR LAURA SICOLA

Author of "Speaking to Influence"

Marc is the perfect interview host: he thoroughly did his homework and read my whole book beforehand so he knew EXACTLY what he wanted to ask for the benefit of his specific audience. His questions were intentional but his style was still conversational, and he found just the right balance between sticking to his intended questions and giving me some latitude as the guest -- even as I shifted gears a few times to have the Zoom audience participate in a few quick exercises to illustrate some points. We had a great time and audience feedback during and after made it abundantly clear that they did too. Have a chance to listen in? Do it. Have a chance to be a guest on his show? By all means, do that too!

LAURA HUANG

Coming on to the Best Business Minds podcast to speak with Marc was a pleasure. Marc prepared excellent questions that were both insightful and thought-provoking. It was clear that Marc had read my book and other research in advance, carefully directing the flow of questions and topics, while also allowing for free-flowing conversation at times. Taken together, this was a highly enjoyable interview – not only for me, but also, I expect, for Marc’s followers and podcast listeners.
