On Location from TEDx Delray Beach Roving Reporting Coverage
Last week, WebmasterRadio.FM producer Brasco reported from a TEDx Event in Delray Beach, Florida. Unlike the TEDTalks events that you may be familiar with, TEDx events are coordinated independently, and stated on the TED website "each event is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level."
We spoke with some of the organizers that helped make the event possible:
We learned What It Takes to Put Together Your Own TedX Event with TedX Event Organizer Becky Woodbridge. We learned Why Delray Beach Was a Good Fit for a TEDx Event as speaker Karen Grainger, the interim President for the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce.
We talked Relationship Selling and Self-Directed Performance Improvement with Jim Cathcart, author of The Acorn Principle, and Relationship Selling, and The Eight Competencies of Relationship Selling: How to Reach the Top 1 Percent in Just 15 Extra Minutes a Day.
International Motivational Speaker and Author Joachim De Posada previewed his upcoming book Keep Your Eye on the Marshmallow: Gain Focus and Resilience-And Come Out Ahead.
We talked about Seven Simple Steps to Profitable Communications with Bruce Turkel, member of the Board of Directors at The Miami Foundation and the author of Building Brand Value: Seven Simple Steps to Profitable Communications.
Finally, Heisman Trophy Winner and Former NFL All Star running Back Ricky Williams discusses how in spite of his football fame, felt a void in his life that only the search for consciousness fulfilled. He also describes how he does not lying to others by feeling humble for his accomplishments.
