Roundtable Discussion on TEDx Talks

Updated: Jan 28, 2022

You may well wonder what a TEDx talk has to do with Feng Shui. It's a fair question. Read on! I'm 65 and fully visible. At 49, I was afraid of turning 50 and becoming invisible.

Inspired by heroes like Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Queen Elizabeth, Cicely Tyson, and Jane Fonda, my aha moment and greatest achievement came writing and delivering a talk on Women, Aging and Visibility, which lives on, to give voice to my experience on how society deems women invisible after a certain age and this is something we can change now and forever so our younger sisters never feel their light go out. I, like my heroes, am a living example. At 49, I ran my first of six triathlons, at 54, I learned to surf, at 58, I married the love of my life, and at 65, I gave my first TEDx talk. Running my own management technology consulting company for 12 years, I became Vice President of JP Morgan Chase at 50 before retiring at 62 to start Everyday Feng Shui. Featured in interviews, hosting courses and talks, and working with clients globally, this fulfills my mission of using Feng Shui and my experience to inspire all women (and men) to step into their power and greatness and live a life of beauty, grace, dignity, and impact at any age! If you have ever wondered how people land a TEDx talk or would like to be someone who lands a TEDx talk that changes your life as it did mine, the upcoming Round Table is for you!

Join me along with my dear mentor, Tricia Brouk, and sister speaker, Keiya Rayne, on this expert Round Table where we'll discuss:

  • What is a TED talk?

  • How do you get chosen?

  • How to calm your nerves on the big day?

  • What makes an exceptional TED talk?

  • How do you prepare and so much more!

Plus, you will have the opportunity to ask our expert panel anything. I promise it will be enlightening and entertaining!

This event has now ended, but I invite you to stay tuned for future events by subscribing to my newsletter.

To learn more and get in on all the fun, register HERE. And finally, in preparation for the Round Table, I was a guest on our host, Dr. Karen Litzy's podcast, Healthy Wealthy Smart, where we spoke about my experience getting on to the TEDx stage, being mistaken for the comedienne Kate McKinnon, what my advice is to my younger self, and much more. Take a listen and enjoy!

I hope to see you tomorrow! With love and blessings, Kate
