Here's What's Included

This video is all about finding TEDx speaking opportunities, either through TED itself or on Google using SpeakerFlow’s Intel Engine.

This four-part lessons includes videos breaking down the TEDx application process including when and where to submit your application. It also explains how to craft an application that showcases your idea in a way that matches the theme of the event.

In these two videos, we break down TED’s request for speakers to have an “idea worth spreading.” We also explain how to narrow down your idea and position it in a way that makes audience members view it differently or take action.

In this lesson, we outline everything you need to know when planning your pitch to the TEDx event speaker selection committee. This includes how to introduce your “idea worth spreading” and make your pitch stand out from those of other applicants.

This video breaks down best practices for recording your pitch to TEDx event organizers including where to film, what to wear, and how to make your recording authentic but professional and polished.

In this lesson, get a “heads up” about the six most common mistakes TEDx applicants make, from the length of their pitch to the depth of details included in it, so you can avoid them during your own applications.

You have your “idea worth spreading,” but how do you build that into something more for your callback audition? In this lesson, learn how as well as how to craft a callback “reel” that’s personal but not promotional.

This lesson is all about the importance of calls to action. Here, we explain how to narrow down the three biggest takeaways from your “idea worth spreading” and include them in your callback audition in a way that catches audience members’ attention. 

In this video, we summarize when and where to record your callback audition as well as how to review your recording as objectively as possible (so you can course correct).

Besides the audition itself, every callback includes a 5-10 minute Q&A with the speaker selection committee. In this lesson, learn how to prepare for this session and, in doing so, stand out from other applicants.

Once you’ve been selected as a TEDx speaker, the next step is event preparation. In this two-part video lesson, learn the biggest differentiators between good and bad TEDx speakers, how to avoid common TEDx speech mistakes, and how to begin writing a killer Talk of your own.

Another well-known tool of a great TEDx speaker is visual aids. This video highlights the value of high-quality slides and how to use them to reinforce the main idea and takeaways of your TEDx Talk.

In this lesson, we cover how to make your speaking material “come to life” and spark a connection between you and the audience by building emotionality into your TEDx Talk.

No TEDx Talk is complete without data to support your arguments. In this video, we explain when to work supporting numbers and statistics into your presentation without overcomplicating it or muddling your main message.

The phrase “practice makes perfect” may be a bit of a cliche, but it’s true. In this lesson, we outline tricks to help you memorize your TEDx Talk along with ways to segue from one part of it to the next. We also touch on the importance of recording yourself so you can improve as you practice.

After practicing solo, the next stage is practicing for a small group. This video explains how and where to practice in front of a live audience and why in-person practice matters pre-TEDx Talk. 

Before your TEDx Talk is performed live, it’s vital that you get feedback. In this video, we discuss the importance of this step, who you should rely on to review your Talk, and why you should consider hiring a TEDx coach for final notes.

What good is booking a speaking gigs if you can’t turn it into something more in the long run? Here, learn how you can turn a TEDx talk into further opportunities, starting with the way you manage contacts in your customer relationshop management (CRM) system.

It’s no secret that, in any expert business, using a CTM is key, but how do you know which CRM is right for you? In this lesson, learn more about choosing a CRM and how it fits into your existng workflow for booking TEDx events.

This video is all about prospecting, specifically prospecting for TEDx events using SpeakerFlow’s Intel Engine. With this tool, you can find speaking opportunities in minutes instead of hours, TEDx ones included.

One of our biggest mantras here at SpeakerFlow is the importance of “S.Y.S.T.E.M.S.” (i.e. the people, processes, and technology that help you Save Some Time, Energy, Money, and Stress). In this lesson, learn how to use two SpeakerFlow tools – the Intel Engine and our CRM – to make TEDx application and event preparation as easy as possible.
