The above video is my TEDx PeachTree speech (below is the written form) on how any of us can be make change happen in our lives. I wanted to empower the audience with lessons learned about influence through my grassroots social change efforts. Most importantly, any of us can create change. We don’t need heroes to save us. We can choose to become influential in our core networks, and change our worlds.
A few weeks ago, I blogged about needing to make ideas more palatable. Well, this afternoon I have an opportunity to strut my stuff at TEDxPeachtree. I’ll be speaking about how we don’t need heroes, and that anyone can use influence to affect societal change (you can watch via livestream at 3:05 this afternoon). I have been preparing this speech for months now. With good reason… More than 5000 people are expected to watch the event in person and via livestream. LiveYourTalk Founder and Speaking Coach Jill Foster has been working with me to maximize this opportunity.
