Description

Want to give your TED/x talk, spread your solutions, and change the world?

Do you have: "Ideas Worth Spreading"?

You have probably seen the buzz from friends or colleagues who have given a TED talk.  

But they probably did not take the time to share with you HOW they prepared, or the backstory of their journey.

Knowing the context is so important because it helps us personalize our own strategy.

TEDx speaker, emcee, sponsor, and volunteer Nathan Eckel sure wishes he had the benefit of a course before he spent well over 1000 hours serving as a volunteer, and sponsor, then decided to apply himself - at completely different organizations.

After a dozen attempts he was not only accepted, but was chosen over a 20M bestselling author to CLOSE the event.

Based on his personal experience, and interviews with over 300 TEDx presenters, Nathan brings tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm to fledgeling TEDx speakers.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). 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. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Nathan has helped hundreds of TEDx presenters get on the TEDx stage and he can help you, too!

Do you believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world?
