PROGRAM OUTCOMES:

  • Clarify your cornerstone IDEA
  • A stage-ready talk (we will coach you on slides, styling, etc)
  • Create your pitch to present to event organizers 
  • Create a script and coach the speaker in creating their application video
  • We will research, apply and follow up on TEDx applications on your behalf

PROGRAM DETAILS:

  • Private meetings between you, your team and me (45-60 minutes each) (as needed or up to 6). Virtually using zoom or in person. 
  • Online learning platform to help you in the exploration process (one module a week for 12 weeks)
  • An online PRIVATE Facebook group for brainstorming and working on your talk
  • We will research, apply and follow up to TEDx stages around the world on your behalf. In our experience, it takes about 6 months of consistently applying to events before you land your stage.  

FAQ:

  • How long does it take to get ready to apply to speak?
    • PREPARING THE PITCH can take anything from a couple of weeks to 3 months to get your idea ready to pitch (depends on the client's commitment & time availability) and this happens privately with me designing the best angle to explore
  • How long until I get selected to speak?
    • PITCHING: once we begin to pitch, we do so consistently week after week submitting your IDEA to 2-4 events depending on events accepting applications. We have seen clients take as little as a month or so to get selected all the way to 9 months
  • Are there better times of the year to apply to speak?

SEASONS: TEDx events (at least the ones we are looking to pitch to) tend to have a long runway. They will open applications about 6 months before the event takes place and they will close applications about 3 months before the event takes place in order to prepare speakers.
