Would you like to do a TEDx talk?
This is Rise Wilson’s YouTube video that forever and a day can be visited by hundreds, thousands and millions of viewers who subscribe to YouTube.
Rise Wilson is the founder of The Laundromat Project – How Making Art is a Practice Space for Becoming A Change Agent. Ms. Wilson also happens to be my niece.
You should really consider it.
Why? Because when you give a really good TEDx talk, it’s not uncommon for the video of your talk to be seen on YouTube by hundreds of thousands of people all around the world.
Imagine someone Googling your name and the first thing they see is a TEDx talk with more than 300,000 views. That’s credibility!
But of course, there’s a lot you need to know to make this happen.
First, most TEDx organizers are flooded with applications from far more would-be speakers than they can accept. Plus, many only accept those based on very narrow criteria, such as being associated with a given university.
Second, the quality of the video you’ll get from your TEDx talk varies dramatically depending on the organizer – which is a huge problem, since coming away with a really compelling, well-edited video on YouTube is the biggest payoff of your talk. A not-so great video might be worse than none at all.
