Your Idea Worth Spreading: How to Build and Pitch Your TEDx Idea

Presenter: Marie Incontrera, CEO and Founder of Incontrera Consulting

"I'd love to give a TEDx talk! It's on my bucket list."

This is what many people say to me when I tell them that I'm a TEDx speaker, or that I coach and place TEDx speakers.

Over the last three decades, TED talks (and TEDx talks) have become a cultural phenomenon. Being a TED/TEDx speaker brings unparalleled brand awareness and credibility to your brand, business, and expertise. Simon Sinek, Brene Brown, and Mel Robbins were all ordinary people who stepped onto a red circle and became some of the world's most renowned thinkers.

Are you unsure of what your TED-style idea is? Or perhaps, are you unsure of what you need to successfully apply to an event? This webinar will bring you through my proven step-by-step process to find and hone your idea, and to develop your application materials so that you can dramatically increase your chances of success and get onto a TEDx stage. It's the same process that I use with my clients and I have a 100% success rate in getting them placed.
