My Journey To The TEDx Stage – New Bedford

Posted by in Entrepreneurs

My goal for 2018 is to do more public speaking and that includes being on stage for TEDx New Bedford 2018.

Before I go to far, let me share what a TEDx event is:

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The want was there, now I needed to learn how I could do that, what it would take to do that.

I found and reached out to Dolores Hirschmann the organizer for the TEDx New Bedford event. We spoke on the phone and she gave me advice and things I’d need to do to give myself the best chance to get on stage for the 2018 event.

Her biggest advice?

I needed to DO MORE PUBLIC SPEAKING! :)

With that information in my head, I accepted an invite to speak at a Social Media Master Event in Bahrain. It will be my first public speaking gig, and Thankfully with the awesome help of Dolores, my presentation will go well and be a success.

As part of my TEDx journey I wanted to be a part of the 2017 even on November 11th. Be backstage, meet the speakers, just be part of the energy.

To start here is what Dolores had to say about the November event:

“This year’s event is all about the first step. How do you begin a community? How do we become big players in our world? How do we discover new health possibilities? These are just some of the ideas our speakers will explore.”

 

The Event Details:

New Bedford, Mass.Zeiterion Performing Arts Center and TEDxNewBedford welcome professionals, students and the casually curious to TEDxNewBedford: Begin on Saturday, November 11, from 1:00 to 8:00 p.m.
