I teach people and organizations how to sell ideas: Executive Producer, TEDxCambridge. Former lives in agencies and nonprofits heading up brand, marketing, and fundraising communication strategy. Retired Weight Watches leader, reluctant marathoner.
So you want to give a TED (or TEDx talk). Maybe it's on your bucket list. Maybe it will help you build a platform for you, your business, or how you want to change the world.
The challenge: What will you talk about? What important and interesting idea is uniquely yours? What idea can you, and only you, share?
As the Executive Producer of TEDxCambridge, the oldest and one of the largest TEDx events in the world, I help our speakers (and others like them) articulate "ideas worth spreading."
Whether you want you want a quick thumbs up or thumbs down on your idea, or a more in-depth discussion about what you can do to make your idea TEDx-worthy, I can help you find the idea that will be most powerful for you.
Tired of being stuck in the small rooms giving away your best content for free? Feel like you have content that's worthy of a larger stage? I can help you figure out how to take your breakout session talk (and speaking skills) to the main stage...and even the keynote stage.
I'm a professional presentation coach AND veteran professional speaker...who also happens to have 20 years of experience as a marketer and is also the Executive Producer of TEDxCambridge, the oldest and one of the largest TEDx events in the world.
What does that mean for you? I understand all sides of the challenge: how to find the right talk that not only suits you and your goals but also the goals of event producers and meeting planners.
Talk to me if:
- You want a quick take on whether or not your topic is already main stage- or keynote-worthy
- You want help figuring out how to turn your experience and knowledge into main stage or keynote talk
- You want to build a strategy for how to use your speaking to achieve your personal or organizational goals
