ABOUT TED / TEDx
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.”
As a TEDx speaker coach since 2010, I have helped over 70 world-renowned speakers (best-selling authors, TED prize winners, renowned scientists, designers, architects, Nobel, Pulitzer, Polk and MacArthur prize winners) to tell their stories.
