Hey there. Yeah, you. Did I hear you whisper ‘My dream is to do a TEDx talk one day’? You may have thought no one heard you, but I did. Even for seasoned professional speakers, the thought of doing a TEDx talk is scary and kind of a big deal. You’re putting your ideas out into the world and inevitably you start thinking ‘Can I do this? Am I good enough? Is my idea TEDx worthy’, Will people judge me?’
Or maybe you’ve already sent in an application and weren’t selected, are not quite sure why, and have pushed that dream WAY to the back burner.
Why is a TEDx talk seen as the ‘holy grail’ for speakers, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and industry experts?
Because making it to the TEDx stage has become a way to build credibility in one’s work and can continue to have an impact long after you’ve left the stage through TED’s online platform. Many careers have been elevated through a TED or TEDx talk (Simon Simonek, Brene’ Brown, etc) and gives the speaker a platform to put out a call to action like no other.
I want to demystify the process of getting to the TEDx stage and to show you that it IS possible.
How do I know? I was invited to give 4 TEDx talks in just over two years
