Guest Speaker: Liz Dewing
Liz graduated with an unusual BSc with dual majors in Computer Science and English. She enjoyed a similarly paradoxical career working in diverse roles from IT, to Behavioural Analysis, to Project Management within Corporates and SME’s before moving into Independent Consulting in 2015.
Her final 12 years with Old Mutual South Africa provided exposure to Strategy Formulation and Execution, as well as Project Offices and Change Management. Liz’s grasp of multiple disciplines means she gets to grips with complex situations rapidly – particularly across the technical divide between Business and IT. She is a Professional Facilitator as well as being a published Author, Speech Writer and Public Speaking Coach.
Liz has coached 3 Speakers for TEDx Cape Town Women Events in 2018 and 2019
Crafting your TED Talk
TED Talks are an extraordinary opportunity to deliver bold new ideas onto the World Stage. Whilst the physical event you speak at may be local and modest, once your talk is loaded onto that TED website your potential audience is the connected population of the entire planet. Doing justice to an opportunity of that scale in a talk of 18 minutes or less requires intense focus and diligent craft…but there are some universal keys to getting it right.
In this workshop I will share insights from my experience as a TEDx Speaker Coach to help you understand how to craft a talk worthy of the TED platform.
