Your "Big Idea"
Follow our strategies and use our speech templates to write the right talk for the right audience that will impact them the way you want. And once your speech is ready, you will get personalized feedback on your delivery.
What's a throughline? Think of it as the thesis of your talk. It's what you want your audience to have an unambiguous understanding of. All talks must have one and in week 2 you'll write yours.
This week you will develop the body of your speech. This is where you build the problem you're solving, the solutions and ultimately your vision.
Close with Power
This week you will write the close of your speech. This is the mic drop moment. The call to action. Where it all comes together and your throughline is fully realized.
Once the rest of your speech is written, now you'll write your intro. You'll bring an attention getter right out of the gate that leads them toward your vision.
TEDx Application & Presentation
