Celebrating another great TEDxNewBedford

Last Friday we hosted TEDxNewBedford 2016 in New Bedford, Massachusetts.  It was an amazing event!  It included:
  • Sixteen AMAZING live speakers and three pre-recorded talks from across the country.
  • Local food vendors including a food truck 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 200 scholarships!
  • Over 1,000 people showed up!
  • Seven hours of fun, new ideas and inspiration.
  • 4 IDEAS WORTH SHARING VIDEOS created by local high school students.
  • 2 Artists installed an New Bedford inspired installation on the stage
  • And we even made the Mayor of New Bedford, Mayor Jon Mitchell dance on stage, AGAIN!

THE CORE TEAM FOR TEDxNewBedford 2016!

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.

 Have a great weekend,
