On Thursday, July 9th friends of the Legacy community had the opportunity to hear from Saleema Vellani as she shared her “10 Tips to Land Your Spot on a TEDx Stage!” In addition to her ten tips, Saleema shared an honest truth about the challenges in applying for a position on a TEDx stage and the importance of learning from our failures. A highlight moment of the discussion was the idea that “TEDx talks are not about being a professional or public speaker, it’s about having a great idea that matters.”

Resources from Saleema:

  • If you’ve decided you want to get on the TEDx stage, Saleema recently launched a self-paced course that short circuits the process of figuring everything out and shows you HOW to actually get a TEDx Talk.
  • Saleema is launching her book’s crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on August 3rd. Feel free to sign up for updates and be part of the exciting journey!
