With the right idea, fifteen minutes is all you need to change the world.

That's the vision behind TED talks. Find an idea worth spreading, distill it down into a compelling fifteen minute speech - and you have a TED talk.

Of course, only a few people each year are invited to the main TED conference. But the TED organization allows local groups to organize their own TED conferences, called "TEDx events." Speakers at TEDx events have the opportunity to reach a large local audience, and have their talk published online to impact a worldwide audience.

As a behavioral health professional, your wellspring of mental health insight and knowledge gives you a unique opportunity to give an incredible TEDx talk. By taking the TEDx stage, you might inspire your audience, share important psychological truths and supercharge your own career.

And in this presentation, you'll learn how to make it happen. Taught by Dr. Daniel Wendler, a two-time TEDx speaker whose TEDx talks have been viewed by over half a million people online, you'll learn strategies for getting invited to a TEDx stage, figuring out your "big idea", and delivering a talk of a lifetime.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand how to develop a TEDx idea that is individual, universal, and simple
• Can find TEDx speaking opportunities in my area and determine which are a good fit for me
• Am able to prepare a TEDx application that makes a strong case for my talk.
