Write your own Ted Talk.

Here is a really fun exercise to start to flesh out your ‘Why?’ and get connected to just how passionate you are about it. What about your ‘Why?’ has already made itself known in your life? What story is ready to be told?

Sagina has offered some wonderful Ted Talks to inspire you by some amazing female speakers;

Brene Brown, ‘The power of vulnerability’ Chimamanda Ngozi, ‘We should all be feminists’ Sheryl Sandberg, ‘Why we have too few women leaders’ Arianna Huffington, ‘How to succeed, get more sleep’

The end result will be that you have now fleshed out your ‘Why?’. Hold yourself accountable by sharing this talk with a friend, reading it out loud or making a video for social media. If you have the belief and confidence, submit it to Ted or Ted X local and see what happens. Who knows, you might end up on a Ted Talk stage in the not so distant future.

Download and use our interactive worksheets digitally or print them out if preferred.
