This episode kicks off with an awesome guest. Nathan Eckel hosts Be The Talk. Here is a section of his site that describes the show
Behind My Talk
My journey to the TEDx stage was accomplished in under 6 months. Although some speakers are invited, I applied like the vast majority – and am so glad I did.
The process of applying to speak allowed me to craft and refine not only my message, but also my application. After a dozen attempts (11 NOs!) I was accepted for an onsite interview, which turned out to be an invitation to join the lineup of TEDxHarrisburg 2017*. I was surprised to learn that I would be closing the event, despite the far greater reputation of the other speakers, including a megabestselling author and a senior official in the US cabinet.
Reflecting on the success of the event, the relative difficulty of finding events within the narrow application window, and hearing stories of colleagues and friends whose applications were not accepted caused me to realize the need to create an archive – one that is available On Demand 7 Days a Week, 100% FREE. (Plus, you can listen 2x or 3x speed if you like!)
