5 Common TEDX Mistakes cover thumbnail

If you’re reading this, chances are you have either been invited to speak at a TEDx conference or are applying to speak at one. If it’s the former, congratulations! If it’s the latter, I applaud your ambition.

As you probably know, TEDx conferences are independently organized by local communities in the spirit of the TED organization, and under their strict rules.

Giving a TEDx talk has the potential to launch your career and springboard you to new heights. The TED brand carries weight, power, and cache.

I know, because my talk “How to Magically Connect with Anyone” received over 500,000 views in its first few months. It became the most popular TEDx talk ever given by a magician. It now holds over 1 million views. That talk – originally delivered to only 80 high school students in Manchester, CT – has landed me speaking inquiries all over the world, featured magazine articles, podcast interviews, and allowed me to increase my speaking fees by 2-3x.

But it isn’t enough just to give a TEDx talk. There are literally hundreds of new TEDx talks uploaded to YouTube every single day. That means yours has to be INCREDIBLE just to get noticed.

In this eBook I will introduce you to 5 Common TEDx Mistakes. Just avoiding these issues will help you and your talk stand out.

    What a generously-spirited article Brian – knowing your character perhaps more than many first-time acquaintances, I’m not surprised at this! Good for you and, lucky for us! Thanks.
