In the second episode of this two-part series, we cover tips on how to find the RIGHT kind of TEDx event for your goals.

I also share essential differences between a TEDx talk and a keynote speech or other kinds of presentation. From how to craft a compelling Big Idea to specific guidance on brainstorming, this episode will be an excellent companion as you craft your TED talk – as well as help you get on the TED or TEDx stage.

Building on last week’s episode dedicated to helping you set yourself and your application up for a more likely Hell Yes, this second episode rounds out the TEDx preparation.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The best way to find TEDx events that are still happening live, especially after the pandemic 

  • What to look for in a TEDx event to make sure you have a video you are excited to share everywhere 

  • Why every TEDx event is NOT created equal and how to match the opportunity with your personal goals for speaking 

  • An excellent starting formula for crafting your Big Idea – even as it will likely evolve as you go through the prep process 

  • How to reveal and choose the best content for your TEDx application and, eventually, talk content 

  • What I mean by the Magic Mix of Content and why it’s so important as you craft your TED talk

Listen to this episode along with part 1 and be completely prepared from searching for your event all the way through crafting your TEDx talk once you get your Hell Yes!
