I have been very blessed to work with some incredible speakers, leaders, and trailblazers on their TED talks. 

I'm PROUD to be the Speaker Coach for TEDx Cardiff by the Sea in San Diego County. 

TED is a unique format that, for me, is a natural signature style. The IDEA DRIVEN talk has captivated the world - and now, with over 1 billion views, TED has truly made a huge impact on the world!

If you want to create a TED worthy talk, or if you want to land on a TED stage yourself, let's connect!
