What’s the one greatest skill that can help you achieve your dream or goal?
The ability to persuade. To sell your idea.
“Why care ? The future is not a place you go to. It’s a place you get to create! With your ideas”.
- Nancy Duarte, TEDx speaker
In this three hour-workshop, you will learn:
  • The key elements that all the very best TED Talks have in common. These are the keys that drive people to view these speeches again and again.
  • A few secrets about how they made magic happen, so you can start to apply that same magic in your own speaking.
  • How your speech concept might meet the “TED” standard. We’ll invite several speakers from the audience to test out their concepts for the entire audience and your coach to let you know whether your idea has potential to engage and inspire an audience for 18 minutes, the standard length of a TED Talk. So please come prepared to share your message in 60 seconds.
  • And you’ll learn by watching and analyzing video clips of selected TED talks, so you can feel how these same speaking approaches are used to deliver memorable messages that matter to their audiences.

Who should attend this workshop to deliver an idea worth spreading:

  • Entrepreneurs and visionaries who have a personal and passionate connection to an idea worth spreading that is bigger than their company or organization.
  • Anyone who wants to take the next step to deliver a compelling message at a TEDx event, annual industry or major company meeting or other venue, to make a difference for your audience, your company, yourself.
  • You have special insight into trends that will affect the future of your industry and ultimately how people will communicate, entertain, design, connect, decide, buy, learn, and make the world safer, more humane place.
What is your story? Will it make a difference in the world? Are you ready to spread your idea? If not now, when?
