How to successfully utilize TEDx to build your personal and organizational and relational capital
How to Successfully Apply or Be Invited to Give Your TEDx Talk

- Determination to Communicate Your Best Ideas From Stage
NGOs, NonProfits, and Volunteer Run Organizations do some of the most rewarding work for amazing causes. Unfortunately, they can be under funded, and resources are usually stretched to the breaking point.
Conversely, in more established charities, politics and precedent can discourage the impact of newer leaders and initiatives.
Establishing yourself as a thought leader outside the walls of your charity is one tool that innovators use to leverage the vehicle of TEDx – and raise everyone in their organization by going outside the walls to spread the impact of the ideas behind your charity.
This course will give you options to get either invited – or accepted – to make your ideas heard on the TEDx stage. It features several examples from the 300+ case studies of BeTheTalk podcast, several are from the non-profit world.

Single-use plastics like cups, bags, bottles and straws contribute to the eight million tons of non-biodegradable plastic that we send to the ocean each year, where it works its way up the food chain and onto our plates. Recent studies have found microplastics in fish, sea salt, and drinking water, and some chemicals in these plastics have been linked to obesity, infertility and even cancer. Is better recycling or using compostable plastics the solution? Not exactly.
Learn the simple steps you can take to break your single-use plastic habit and change the world.
Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff is the Executive Director of 5 Gyres Institute, the ocean conservation non-profit that first discovered plastic microbeads in 2012 and campaigned for a successful federal ban in 2015.
Eight million tons. That’s a lot of plastic to swallow, and a lot of straws to bear even if you’re the world’s oceans (yes, who knew we use 300 million plastic straws a day?). Or rather, especially if you’re the ocean, according to the startling data that Lia Colabello delivers in this talk on the global marine crisis of plastic pollution.
But Colabello doesn’t just sound alarms (though those come through loud and clear), but she offers hopeful solutions based on innovative development of single-use plastics/resins that are marine degradable.
A native of Hawaii and lifetime surfer, Lia Colabello grew up loving the water, a love that continued at the University of Southern California, where she earned degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Anthropology, and played for the Women’s Varsity Water Polo Team.
After college, she worked around the world in the sports industry, managing projects with the PGA TOUR, NFL and the World Surf League. She earned an MBA at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, specializing in the international non-profit sector.
She’s worked for the Surfrider Foundation and for SecondWave Recycling and now advocates for reducing plastic pollution with 5Gyre from her home in Charleston, SC.
Since the dawn of Homo sapiens, animals have satiated our species’ desire for meat. But with our growing population and global demand for animal products increasing, raising such huge numbers of animals for food poses serious challenges.
But, what if we could have our meat and eat it too? Enter clean meat—real meat, grown without animals—which has now moved from science fiction to science fact. Paul Shapiro serves as the vice president of policy for The Humane Society of the United States, the world’s largest animal protection organization.
In 1995, Shapiro founded Compassion Over Killing as a high school club, building it into a national organization over the next decade. An inductee into the Animal Rights Hall of Fame, Shapiro has published dozens of articles about animal welfare in publications ranging from daily newspapers to academic journals.
He’s also the author of a forthcoming book on the clean meat movement (Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
