TRANSFORMATIONAL TALKS

FOR GLOBAL CHANGEMAKERS
A 6 week guided challenge to produce and film a  powerful transformational talk

Are you creating positive change in the world?  
Are you trying to change archaic practices, disrupt static and stagnant industries, or carry a positive message about a re-imagined future?   

If you are a Changemaker, you'll know that being able to deliver a transformational talk is an essential tool in creating influence and impact, and changing hearts and minds!

A transformational talk is not like others.  It's not about selling from the stage.  It's not about pumping up the room (although it can!).  It's about sharing deep knowledge, dropping a new thought into someone's mind like a pebble in a pool, that ripples outwards and changes the surface beyond recognition. It's about an idea that's rooted in something worth sharing with the world. 

And it's one of the hardest talks to do well. 

If you would like an experience with like-minded Changemakers, to write and deliver the best possible transformational talk you can, in a great supportive environment where you can overcome your fear of public speaking, this is the Challenge for you!​

HOW DOES IT WORK?


  • Over a 6 week period, you will develop your keynote talk, using the system that has supported many successful TED speakers over the last 10 years
  • Each week the key steps to take to develop your talk will be outlined in a  60 min WEBINAR.  You can share your progress, and all your ups and downs with fellow Changemakers!
  • You'll receive WEEKLY EMAILS with guidance, top hints and tips to help you through each stage
  • We will hear from other EXPERTS in their specialist fields to help you; voice coaches, performance specialists, speech writers and trainers who know just how to help you engage with the audience
  • We have a private Facebook group in which you can share your progress and experience with like-minded colleagues
  • At the end of the 6 week course, you get to deliver your keynote talk with your colleagues in a PRESTIGIOUS LOCATION where it will be filmed for all to see (and you to use)!
  • AND BEST OF ALL? If you've been too NERVOUS or WORRIED about speaking, you'll be with a great group of supportive colleagues who are there to help you SHINE!

Some of our first Challengers!

  • At our first Challenge in July this year, we had a wide variety of talks including:
  • The Power of Pregnancy by Bumps in the Boardroom CEO Lisa Barnwell
    How to be a Compassionate Communicator by Kavitha Chahel
    Project Planet Clean Up by environmental solutionologist Nicola Peel
    Accelerating The Shift To A Better Business World by sustainability specialist Fred Patterson
    How your Subconscious Shapes Your Reality by social impact specialist Heidi Fisher
    How Business Can be the Catalyst for a Better Future by Jenny Andersson
    How to be a Gamechanger by business consultant Laura Morrison

HERE'S WHAT PREVIOUS SPEAKERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE.......

WHAT'S IN EACH MODULE?


  • WEEK 1: PURPOSE
  • Week 2: structure 
  • Week 3: storytelling
  • week 4: VISUALS 
  • week 5: PERFORMANCE
  • WEEK 6: FINAL FRONTIER

All great stories have a brilliant start, a compelling middle, and a dramatic conclusion!
As we start to organise the STYLE and CONTENT for your talk, we also start working here on creating a COMPELLING START and a grandstand FINISH. 
You'll learn how to make sure you capture the attention of the audience at the START, and how to ensure you FINISH your talk and leave the audience entranced.
This is often a good week to book your 1-2-1 with Jenny Andersson as it's around now that confusion creeps in about how much to put in and how much to leave out!

"Since taking over at TED in 2001, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted short talks can be key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, sharing knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and change and audience's worldview."

Let us help you create your signature short talk!  Getting your key message into just 18 minutes is a massive challenge! One hour is SO much easier.  It focuses the mind, helps you clarify your whole business message, and is a powerful tool to help you create change.
