Lessons from the TEDx Stage.

Jade Harrell recently delivered a TEDxGatewayArch presentation. Coaching her was a privilege, and . . .


In this interview we discuss the preparation, delivery, and other aspects of this career changing “Speaking Opportunity.”

Speaking Opportunities are Business, Career, and Leadership Opportunities!”

Standing on the round red carpet, spotlights on you, and a filled auditorium ranks at the top of those Speaking Opportunities!”

TEDxGateway Arch held their latest event, Ripple Effect, on October 27th, 2017. TEDx are local venues of the famous TED Talks.

Fourteen individuals worked extremely hard to prepare for this ‘once in a lifetime opportunity.’ Their investment in time and energy paid off.

It was my honor to coach Jade Harrell, the charismatic creator and executive producer of RareGem Productions, a positive media production and creative consultation company. She took her passion, communications; added knowledge and technique and owned the stage!
