“Wow! It would be fun do to a TEDx Talk!”

Have you ever thought that?

How long afterward did it take for you to get scared?

We understand:

  • Speaking on a subject you’re passionate about can be lots of fun.
  • Doing something you’ve never done before can be intimidating.
  • And how do you get started, anyway?

So we created a program that will let you lean into the fun part of a TEDx Talk in a safe, supportive environment. At the end of the four weeks, you’ll have created and delivered a five-minute mini-TEDx Talk.

Elaine Bennett is an award-winning speechwriter; Marie Incontrera is an expert at content development and positioning. Between the two of us, we’ve written TEDx talks, organized TEDx events, and spoken on TEDx stages.

If you’ve got an idea for a talk you want to give once the world opens up again, now’s the time to start developing it. Live events may be at a standstill, but most organizers are planning TEDx events for the future. In fact, there’s never been a been a better time to be working on your TEDx idea.

If you just want to find out what it feels like to deliver a talk on your favorite subject—this is a great way to keep your mind active and have some fun, too.

And if you just want to hang out with a bunch of clever, intellectually curious people, grab a virtual cocktail and join us in the TEDx Happy Hour.

How it works

We’ll start with three live, in-person sessions (yes, on Zoom). Marie will lead the first, showing you how to narrow your ideas to a TEDx–appropriate focus.

Elaine will lead the second session, demonstrating how her Story Safari™ technique can help you find the stories that only you can tell.

The third session will be a live Q&A call with both of us,

During the following two or three weeks (depending on the number of participants), the TEDx Happy Hour goes into full swing, as you and your fellow speakers take the floor to deliver your 5-minute talks to the group, earning supportive and undoubtedly thunderous applause. You’ll also get the chance to hear feedback on your idea.

Plus, you’ll have access to a private Facebook group to brainstorm your ideas and get additional support and feedback.

And look at all you’ll accomplish!
  • begin to articulate your TEDx idea
  • speak in front of a group
  • become more adept at finding ideas
  • discover how to make those ideas your own
  • get feedback on your idea
  • exercise your mind in new ways
  • have some fun with new people

Working with us both on these skills would normally start at $2500. As a one-time-only special offer, the investment for the inaugural TEDx Happy Hour is just $197. It will never be this affordable again.

Register today—we kick off on May 6 at 5:30 PM EST.
