TEDx: Moving Mountains
by Grace W. Ueng, CEO of Savvy Growth
I was recently asked to participate in a TEDx themed “Moving Mountains.”
My TED Talk “If there’s a mountain, Climb It!” discusses “10 Steps to reach the top” – lessons learned from climbers of the 7 Summits who also start companies successfully. How one informs the other. From my experiences in serving on management teams of five tech ventures + advising over seventy Savvy clients, I overlay my TED Talk with these reminders:
- You miss every shot you don’t take
- Failure is a good thing
- Speak the future now
- Power of Visualization
- Channel Fear to your advantage
- Bias for action
- Enjoy the journey
Attempting to follow just a few of the TED Talk rules was good reminder of just how very hard it is to compose & present a sticky story…in well under 18 minutes.
I will certainly keep in mind my lessons learned in coaching executives on their talks!
