What I learned leading TEDxNewBedford


Last Friday we hosted TEDxNewBedford in New Bedford, Massachusetts.  It was an amazing event! 

It included:

  • Seventeen AMAZING live speakers and three pre-recorded talks from across the country.
  • Five local food vendors who served hundreds of meals to those in attendance.
  • Over 20 volunteers who worked the stage, backstage, aisles and lobby to ensure everything ran smoothly.
  • People crowded the theatre and food court as we live-streamed happenings on stage into our lobby and dining area.
  • Thanks to our partners, we awarded over 150 scholarships!
  • Over 1,000 people showed up!
  • Seven hours of fun, new ideas and inspiration.
  • Thematic backdrops assembled with over 1,500 postcards.
  • And we even made the Mayor of New Bedford, Mayor Jon Mitchell dance on stage!

During seven months of planning and production, I learned a few things  about what it means to lead a team towards the best possible outcome. I want to share those learnings with you--so you can apply them in your projects and with your own teams:

I'm enclosing a worksheet which can help you with this exercise. Three Key Elements of Leadership.pdf

Let me know how you did with this exercise. Send me an email or leave a comment in social media, I can't wait to hear how you are leading your teams. Want to set up a time to connect and explore how I can help you hone these skills? Book time to speak.
