Welcome to the ultimate Masterclass designed for professionals like you to speak craft and deliver a compelling talk and secure your place on the coveted TEDx stage!

Are you ready to elevate your speaking skills, share your ideas on a global platform, and make a lasting impact? This Masterclass is not just about crafting a compelling TEDx talk; it’s your comprehensive guide to reach the TEDx stage. 

Learn from real-life strategies that have propelled me, a two-time TEDx speaker and executive coach, onto the TEDx stage and gain insights into the tangible steps to make your TEDx dream a reality.

Not too long ago, until 2018, I suffered from terrible stage fright. Today, as of February 2024, I am a two-time TEDx speaker. 

My Journey to the TEDx stage

It was sometime in December 2021 that I decided to become a TEDx speaker. That was an easy decision. Figuring out the path was another ballgame altogether!

A TED talk isn’t just like any other talk. It needs to have certain elements. The speaker needs to demonstrate certain qualities. I know people who have taken years to write their TED talk, some of whom are still writing. Being a writer and speaker, I was able to work out this part fairly quickly. 

It was the next step that stumped me – how to reach the stage and put yourself in a position to stand atop the red carpet?
I researched and researched but drew a blank. While a lot of literature – and quite a few coaches –claimed to help with the first bit, I couldn’t find a single source of help for that crucial last mile. For someone who neither had ‘connections’ nor wanted to go through the so-called ‘PR Agents’ to reach that stage, there seemed to be nothing that could help.

So, I decided to help myself by figuring out my own way.

After some days, I had something I could call a plan on paper.

When January 2022 dawned, I started actioning out the plan. I started getting responses – mostly unfavourable – but responses nevertheless. The plan was working!
Based on the responses, I refined my plan and pitch and set out on the path again. The reactions were even faster this time, and some were favourable. By the beginning of February, I was in discussions; by the end of the month, the audition process had begun. By March, I had a confirmation, and by April 2022, I was on the red carpet.

The girl who once was very scared of the stage became a TEDx speaker. In less than four months of setting her sight on it. 

I created my own path in the maze of confusion and ambiguity.

And then life went on as usual. Except that some of my coaching clients started enquiring about the road to the TEDx stage,  which I shared transparently.
Then one of my clients enquired – ‘Do you think it will work again, or was it luck?’

I paused. I knew it was a lot of smart work rather than luck. But I also believe the proof of the pudding is in the eating. And I had no evidence to reply to the query.

‘I will get back to you on that,’ I said instead. 
That was in September 2023. And I decided to follow the previous path I had created again. To be able to provide an honest reply. 

And in November 2023, I became a TEDx speaker. Again. Within less than two months.
There was no doubt in my mind that my path worked.

If it worked for me, it will work for you. 
I have decided to show you how.

In this one-of-a-kind masterclass.

Marble Surface

Q: Is there a limit to the number of participants?

Yes. To ensure maximum interaction, engagement and optimum attention, we have limited the number of slots in the Masterclass to 10 participants only.

Q: I want to give my TEDx talk in a non-English language. Will this Masterclass be suitable for me?

Given the universal messaging of the TEDx talk, this Masterclass will be in English. TED also mandates the use of English in some form in the TEDx talk. If you want to deliver your talk in a local language, then this wouldn’t be a suitable platform for you.

Q: Will recordings of the Masterclass be available if I miss a day for some reason?

Owing to the nature of the Masterclass and the information shared therein, no recordings or replays will be made available to participants. You need to log in for two hours each for all three days to be able to take benefit of the session.

Q: Will you put me in touch with TEDx organizers or guarantee placement on the TEDx stage?

No. I am a coach, and my role is to show you the most effective path to achieve your goal. You will have a concrete roadmap to reach the TEDx stage and need to implement the roadmap on your own. If you are looking for someone to introduce you to TED or TEDx organizers,

“Rock the Stage: Your Blueprint to TEDx Triumph” is not the right platform or forum for you.

Q: Are there any refunds or money-back guarantees?

This Masterclass is one of its kind, enabling attendees to generate a step-by-step roadmap to reach the TEDx stage. Owing to the nature of knowledge, insights and templates shared in the session, there would be no refunds or money-back for the session once you have registered.

Marble Surface

Q: What if I don’t have a specific topic for my TEDx talk yet?

That’s perfectly fine! The Masterclass includes sessions to help you explore and identify compelling topics that align with your passion and expertise. You’ll leave with a draft of your TEDx talk and clarity on the message you want to share.

Q: How long is the Masterclass, and what’s the schedule?

“Rock the Stage” is an immersive experience spread over 6 hours in three days, covering three key elements - Elements of a Good TEDx Talk, Creating a Draft Outline and Sample TEDx Talk, and Action Steps to Reach the TEDx Stage. It is scheduled from 5-7 pm IST from 1st-3rd March 2024.

Q: Will there be feedback opportunities on my TEDx talk draft?

The Masterclass will be interactive with Q&A sessions. You will have a compelling and refined outline ready for the TEDx stage at the end of the Masterclass. I will take up two 1-2 drafts of participants to provide feedback and take questions from all. Since it’s a group format, personalized feedback for all will not be possible.
