Coaching for TEDx Talks Will Help You Be a Great TEDx Speaker
TEDx talks are an incredible opportunity! They let you create a platform, and can help you reach literally thousands of people.
That’s both a blessing and a curse: Suddenly, you can really show your stuff. But you can also fall flat on your face. On video. In front of a huge national audience.
How can you make sure your TEDx talk shines? The answer (spoiler alert!) is TEDx coaching.
My Coaching for TEDx Talks has helped dozens of speakers make successful TEDMED, TEDx, and Ted-style conference presentations:
- Their topics have ranged from local investing to the heroism of humility to what happens (and doesn’t happen) in emergency rooms, and beyond.
- I’ve taken them from initial idea to polished presentations.
- We’ve worked together on everything from outlines to images to how to own the stage
I can guide you through that journey, too!
What Will Your TEDx Coaching Look Like?
That depends on where you are in your journey, and what kind of help you need.
Which of these categories best describes you?
- I have an idea, but I’m just starting to develop it.
- I have a talk that’s almost ready to pitch.
- I’ve actually been out there pitching my talk.
- My talk is booked. I NEED HELP FAST!!
While some coaches only work on delivery, and some writers know how to organize a talk but not how to make it “sing” onstage, I help you with every aspect of preparing, practicing, and delivering your TEDx talk. I’m able to do that because of my background as a speechwriter, a performer, and a seasoned public speaker coach who’s worked with hundreds of clients.
In addition, I’m an expert on managing fear, building your stage presence, and connecting with your audience.
And as a certified practitioner of both MBTI personality theory and Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0), I have special tools to help you understand yourself as a public speaker, and leverage the solid base of your existing communications strengths and skills.
