TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, is an annual conference which features speakers who approach ideas from various disciplines.
TEDx is a program created by TED so that communities and organizations all around the world can organize similar events which have the same mission: ideas worth spreading.
What’s amazing about these TEDx speakers is that you can actually book them for your own event.
Here are three speakers which will spark conversation, connect and share knowledge with your audience.
Inspiring TEDx Speakers
John is a four-time all-American collegiate track athlete, two-times Olympic Trials Qualifier and a United States Army Gulf War veteran. Unfortunately, due to an injury, he had his left leg amputated.
Thanks to his determination and great ambition, only 27 months after his surgery, John was qualified to become a member of the Paralympic swim team.
Four years after this achievement, he learned how to run on a prosthesis and made it into the history books by winning the long jump silver medal in Sydney, Australia.
The challenges and struggles he went through helped him learn a lot about change management, competitive advantage and resilience. John has the ability to take these lessons and make them relatable to business leaders and college sports associations.
His speech is dynamic, authentic and engaging, which is why John manages to inspire and capture the audience’s attention with humor, enthusiasm, and emotion.
