IDEAS THAT IGNITE is a comprehensive, high performance live coaching program for industry experts, creatives and innovators who are ready to land a TEDx talk and deliver it with intriguing insights, captivating stories, and an ignitable takeaway.
STOP DENYING YOUR FUTURE AUDIENCE OF YOUR IDEA WORTH SPREADING
You don’t need to have years of previous speaking experience, a published book, or to have name recognition to speak on the stages of TED or TEDx.
LET'S CRAFT YOUR IDEA, SHARE IT TO THE WORLD, AND CREATE AN ASSEST THAT WILL IGNITE YOUR BRAND LIKE NO OTHER
The truth is TEDx curators need YOU just as much as you need THEM!
And yes, you probably already have the experience and idea inside of you, but are unsure how to craft it in the way that is going to make your IDEA stand OUT to organizers, and IGNITE the minds of listeners.
You may have seen a memorable TED or TEDx talk and asked yourself…
How Does One Get on a TEDx Stage?
Am I qualified to give a TEDx talk?
What kind of ideas are organizers looking for?
How do I choose an idea to pitch, and how do I present it with conviction, connection and clarity?
What can I do to leverage my talk as an asset for my personal brand?
The process of finding, booking and speaking at TEDx events can sometimes be confusing, and many people don’t even know about the current opportunities. This can be even more demoralizing if you’ve applied before, only to have your application denied.
Fortunately, there is a better way forward!

The TEDx process and specifically being coached through it helped me to create an asset that will continue to not just make me money as a business owner, but impact a lot of people. I'm also writing a book right now on embodiment and I'm telling stories from the TEDx Talk in the book, so the opportunities that come from that talk just keeps on giving. I think what's important to remember is like doing a TEDx talk - you're, you're doing it for the long-term benefit of yourself, but also of the people that you serve"

"I had been doing a lot of storytelling at bars and theaters and those things, but Dawn helped me to see that these same stories can be converted in some way to work within corporate settings for corporate retreats for key notes and those things.
These, these things can be very lucrative as a storyteller and podcaster. Since, since working with her course, I've been able to, to secure six figure deals with some of the clients that I've worked with, I've been able to work on major projects with, with notable names, and a lot of that is attributed to Dawn showing that, that these things are possible."
