Check out these questions from our recent TEDx Q & I webinar

Check out below some of the questions we discussed during the TEDx webinar earlier this week!

This week's webinar was not my TEDx training; rather, a separate event to share as many insights as possible about anything related to TEDx and becoming a TEDx speaker.

Of course I dove into some tips on becoming a TEDx speaker and criteria to get selected, but becoming a TEDx speaker is it's own training.

Disclaimer: Other than being a TEDx speaker, former TEDx event organizer and a TEDx speaker coach, I have no affiliation with the TED organization. I am not compensated in any way by TED or any TEDx event. I am simply sharing my experiences with TEDx events and TEDx speakers to provide insights that might help others who are aspiring to be on the TEDx stage ... like you?

  • What's the biggest mistake speakers make when 'pitching' a TEDx talk?

  • What's the specific process for getting selected?

  • What's the difference between presenting for TEDx and one of your paid professional presentations?
