Nick Gray is the energetic CEO and founder of Museum Hack, a company that runs renegade tours at top museums across the USA.
I first met Nick over two years ago when I had him as a guest on my first podcast, and since then, Museum Hack has EXPLODED.
Nick is now lauded as the guy who has made museums fun, and has built a lucrative business in the process.
In this episode, we discuss how Nick and his Museum Hack tour guides make their tours so engaging, especially when museums are often perceived as being very very boring. And this is important because perhaps YOU have to present ‘boring’ or detailed information at work — in which case, Nick shares ways in which you can turn it into a compelling presentation.
Oh, and he also shares his tips for ‘hacking’ your own museum experience — no tour guide required!
There is a lot we can learn from the success of Museum Hack, so, I hope you enjoy.
