About
Cesar Cervantes

Jokes are how I connected with my dad.

I was always a natural performer, and I was in theater very young.

When I was in theater classes in high school, I'd always figure out a way to make the scene funny, even if it wasn't supposed to be funny.

It was a natural transition when I heard that there was an open mic in my hometown.

That was the first time I'd been on stage with the intention of just making people laugh.

I thought it went great…

Looking back on it, I was doing all the cliché things.

I was doing what I thought the audience wanted…

Rather than being true to my own voice.

Because I had no idea what that was yet.

Regardless, I fell in love with comedy and pursued it as a career, connecting with people through jokes all around America.

About 10 years into my comedy career, I began feeling constrained by the medium…

I struggled to go deeper with my audience.

I couldn’t shake the feeling of being stifled creatively by my medium.

So, I started teaching theater.

This transition allowed me to connect with people's stories and messages,

To help them express that on stage.

This caused me to realize that public speaking is what I enjoy most,

This caused me to realize that public speaking is what I enjoy most,

I decided to shift from entertainment to transformation.

I started studying TEDx Talks…

I would watch and re-watch all of my favorite talks:

Talks from Simon Sinek, Brian Stevenson, Brené Brown, and Mel Robbins.

I invested thousands of dollars into my education and development to grow as much as possible with my passion for speaking on stage.

Then, something happened that changed my life.

I finally landed my first TEDx Talk.

Humble enough to realize I needed support in crafting the talk itself,

I hired a public speaking coach who helped me understand the form and structure of my talk.

As you can probably guess, just like my first stand-up gig…

I made a bunch of mistakes in my first talk.

Like not practicing it enough in front of live crowds.

But the one thing I’m proud of is that I still promoted it once it was out there.

After my second talk, I started to get the hang of it.

When you understand what TEDx is looking for and how all the rules and regulations work… It’s a bit like having a blueprint.

WHEN MY THIRD TEDx TALK WENT LIVE… MY HEART PULLED ME IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

I realized I’d accidentally become an expert in how to land and deliver great TEDx Talks.

So naturally, people started asking for my help landing their TEDx Talks.

And every single one used my system and landed a successful talk.

Then it all hit me.

I had mastered something.

And it wasn’t just helping people “land” their TEDx Talks.

It was helping people find their true voice.

IN 2020, I LAUNCHED MY TEDx MENTORSHIP PROGRAM.

It went better than I thought it would…

Since then, we’ve helped over 200 clients land and deliver great TEDx Talks.

We’ve developed the only program that will keep working with you until you land your talk.

That’s how much we believe in our process.

Ready for another challenge in 2022, I took my speechwriting to another level.

After all the success of our client's TEDx Talks, people started asking us if we could help write their keynote speeches, signature talks, and presentations.

So, we launched our speechwriting services and have had the opportunity to craft some amazing speeches for our clients.

And as a result, the team has grown.

So has my family...

My wife and I now have two beautiful children together.

So, I’ve had lots of great dad joke opportunities…

Jokes are how I connect with my kids.

If you take anything from my story, I hope it’s this:

Life is an adventure, a constant journey to keep listening to your heart and its call.

When you listen to that call and answer it, magic happens.

My life has changed because I had the courage to stand up on a stage and speak.

The forms of speaking have changed over the years…

Mastering the art and science of public speaking has been my life's work.

It has all led me here.

To my purpose:

Helping you amplify your life's work and passions through speaking from the head and the heart.

Thanks for stopping by.
