How to Land & Slay Your TEDx Talk

It's your time to slay that stage! Speaking from the iconic TEDx stage is one of the best ways to increase your visibility, gain more credibility for your thought leadership, land more lucrative speaking gigs, and possibly even land a book agent! TEDx can be a game-changer & ticket to success!

But your odds of landing a TEDx talk are lower than your odds of getting into Harvard... with 100 to 300 applications per TEDx event, and typically only 5 to 6 speaking spots, according to Forbes! That puts your odds of landing a TEDx talk at 2% to 5% - meaning that 95 out of 100 people (or more!) who apply are rejected. Luckily for you, I have landed two TEDx talks AND graduated from Harvard University... So I know something about beating these daunting odds, and I can help you do it, too! 

It can be a mistake to try to go it alone... I hired a TEDx coach after my first TEDx talk to be sure my second talk would have a better shot of going viral! I'm now at almost 100,000 views, which puts my talk in the top 2% of all TEDx talks globally. I'm now represented by an international speakers' bureau, and command a five-figure speaking fee! 


Let me help you beat the odds and become one of the few who gets to speak on the iconic, life-changing TEDx stage - because the world needs to hear YOUR message and YOUR voice! My mission is to help diversify the TEDx stage, and the TEDx coaching world! We need more brilliant women thought leaders, especially women of color, on those stages!

Take it from my client Lauren Schmidt, who will deliver her TEDx talk in September 2023: "Working with Lisa been nothing short of absolutely amazing.... I can tell you after working with her 100% unequivocally it was the best decision I could’ve made. She helped me put my message into words, and I couldn't have asked for a better gift!"


It's your time to achieve this bucket list dream - Let's go!!!! 

There are a few fun ways to work with me on your TEDx talk in fall 2023! 


OPTION 1: If you really want to land a TEDx talk in 2023 or 2024 - this is for you! 

I am currently offering private TEDx coaching on How to Land & Slay Your TEDx Talk* for THREE (3) additional women only! (All other private TEDx coaching spots are already taken). If giving a life-changing TEDx talk is on your bucket list, let’s do this!!!!















*If you really want to land & slay a TEDx talk in 2023 or 2024, this is for you!


TEDx is your chance to change the world in 18 minutes or less….

I have delivered TWO TEDx talks, and my second TEDx talk has more than 90,000 views within a few months – putting it in the top 2% of all TEDx talks globally! (Only 1.97% of TEDx talks get more than 10,000 views!). I’m proud of the fact that my talk is on track to garner 100,000+ views soon. It is exciting to touch so many lives!Delivering two TEDx talks also helped me land representation by an international speakers’ bureau, where I now command a five-figure speaking fee! Let’s tackle your TEDx & speaking goals as well… I’m here to support you on the journey!

We'll walk through the whole process together, including:

  • How to find & refine your transformational IWS (Idea Worth Spreading); 

  • How to hand-select TEDx events to apply to where you are more likely to be accepted (and this matters when your odds of getting accepted are under 5%!);

  • How to further maximize your odds with an outstanding application;

  • How to craft your talk to captivate your audience, share your world-changing message, and have the best shot of potentially going viral! 


You'll be ready to deliver your best TEDx talk, which will now be part of your legacy! 


In this 1-on-1 exclusive coaching process: 


  • I'll help you select at least 3 TEDx events to apply to that are a good match for you to help you up your odds of being selected;

  • Help you with your application so you clearly articulate your Idea Worth Spreading, craft a catchy talk title that will make people more likely to click and watch & nail your application video;

  • Help you craft, edit and refine the talk once you are accepted so it will be memorable, inspiring, world-changing, and more likely to “go viral”;

  • Help you make your plan for rehearsing the talk, including memorizing your 10 to 18 minute talk, so you can absolutely slay that TEDx stage;

  • AND we’ll work together on your comprehensive promotional plan to be sure your talk gets more views once it goes live! We want the world to continue to learn from your IWS (Idea Worth Spreading), and to grow your credibility and platform as a thought leader! Let’s get you into that top 2% of TEDx talk globally as well! 

Here's how it works: 

  • These sessions can be scheduled either as one 90-minute session per month OR two 45-minute sessions per month, according to your preference and at your convenience, over a six-month period anytime in the next year (through September 30, 2024).

  • You can also accelerate your coaching timeline if you wish, and schedule two 90-minute sessions per month for 3 months, if you would rather accomplish the work in a shorter timeframe or if you are applying to or speaking at a TEDx event happening within the next 3 to 4 months.

  • Unlimited Voxer support is available as well during my weekly business hours.

  • AND I'll help you with your TEDx applications, talk outline, draft talk, rehearsal schedule, promotional plan, - everything from landing the talk to slaying it on that stage!

I'm with you every step of the way! 

HERE is what one of my private TEDx coaching clients had to say about working with me: 


Working with Lisa been nothing short of absolutely amazing.... I can tell you after working with her 100% unequivocally it was the best decision I could’ve made. She helped me put my message into words, and I couldn't have asked for a better gift! This talk will be one of the biggest pieces of marketing material I have, just really encapsulating what I wanted to share with the world, and that came from working with Lisa.

What I've created with her is something I'm so proud of! I can literally look at this talk and say that is the absolute best I could have done, and I’m so proud to put it into the world. 

I know this is something I want to share with people I’m working with, for future speaking engagements, for partners I want to collaborate with.... I know now, hey if you want to know what I stand for and who I am, watch this talk! And that is because of my work with Lisa. I’m so blown away by the end result, and I’m so excited about standing up there to give this talk. This was a beautiful journey that I took with Lisa! 

If anyone is going through this process with a TEDx talk, thinking that they want to do this, please do yourself a favor. It will be a favor to yourself to work with her! I just looked back at what I had written pre-Lisa, and think that would have been a shame if I had given that talk! Now I could not be prouder to share my TEDx talk, and that was because of the clarity, the confidence, the construction of the talk that I worked on with Lisa. There really is an art to this! She becomes your champion - she champions you! 

She’s so much fun to work with - there’s really no one better.
