In this episode of the Boomtank Business Show, I interview Soness Stevens a leading, international TED Talk Coach living in Japan. Her Japanese clients have a 100% acceptance rate to TED and TEDx talks in Japan. Her global clients have a crazy high TED and Tedx talk acceptance rate of 85% for talks around the world. This interview is for those of you interested in public speaking and perhaps even, giving your own TED or Tedx talk.
Ted speakers are chosen if they offer a unique perspective an/or fresh new idea to the world. Soness says Chris Anderson, largely viewed as the founder of TED Talks, believes “Everyone has an idea worth spreading.” What’s yours? In this interview, Soness takes you through the “5 Wise Why’s” to figure that out. This is highly valuable TED Talk coaching. We cover a lot of ground.
Keep in mind, TED Talks are not here to build your brand and business. They are not a pitch. They exist solely to promote ideas. That said, an understandable byproduct of giving a TED Talk is the resulting launch effect it can have for you, your brand, your business and potentially your speaker career, if that’s a focus for you.

The roadmap outlines TED Talk essentials, because speaking for TED begins with the TED application process. Soness says plan one year in advance for speaking at TED, since the most successful TED speakers practice their talk an average of 200 times before giving it. Terrific interview!
