TEDTalk speeches communicate ideas in short, powerful presentations. In this intensive 9-session workshop, you will utilize our unique formula for creating a 5-12 minute talk that will convey a powerful idea and inspire the audience to think differently.

As TED puts it on their website, their events involve “carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.”

In this 10 session workshop we will cover:

  • Choosing a powerful idea.
  • The structure of a TED-style Talk.
  • A Powerful Beginning and Ending
  • Owning the Stage
  • The Visuals
    Using slides, demonstrations, verbal imagery, etc., to add meaning to your talk.
  • How to Practice

You will present your speech, or segments from it, frequently during the workshop session and receive constructive feedback from the coaches and fellow participants.

Presentations will be given at the final session, open to friends and family.
