Your 1-2-1 coaching package for TED speaking success

You’ve got a big talk coming up, maybe even a TED or TEDx talk and this is not one that you want to leave to chance.  If that’s you, you’re in the right place. The Ginger team are experts in helping you craft the talk that will raise your profile and expertly showcase your work.

Why take 1-2-1 TED Talk Coaching?

You can of course design a great talk without the help of an expert. But here are some really good reasons why you’d want to use Ginger:

1Clearing up the confusion

If you’re like 90% of our clients, you probably feel uncertain or confused about your message, or how to get it across in the space of time you have available. This is normal. But you don’t want to stay there. A trained pair of Ginger ears will quickly and skillfully help you to declutter your message and figure out what you really want to say.

2 The ‘I THINK I’m better than I really am’ Trap

I’m sure you’ve sat in the audience listening to a speaker who’s not quite as good as they think they are. They’ve fallen in love with their speech, but haven’t made the audience do the same. It’s scarily easy to do that as a speaker, because you are too close to your material to know what really works. But the consequences are horrendous – you are self-satisfied, but the audience aren’t. To avoid this trap it takes the skilled eye of an experienced coach to be brutally honest about your impact.

3 The ‘I’m ACTUALLY better than I think I am’ Trap

On the other side of the spectrum many speakers lack confidence in their ideas and stories. This is a major hindrance to your visibility in your industry as you’re less likely to put yourself forward to speak at events. It’s our job to encourage you and point out the parts of your speech content that will really impress. We release your confidence so that you can write not one great speech, but great talks and presentations forever more.

4 purple We make YOU brilliant

We’re interested in helping you to develop your ideas, rather than imposing ones on you that don’t feel right. Ginger’s training team are not only experienced speakers and TEDx coaches, but they are all skilful coaches who listen carefully to find the talk that you really want to give.

5We’ll stretch you.

We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t encourage you to take more risks with your speaking. This is what brings greater connection to your audience and makes your talk or presentation more successful. We’ll stretch you to show more emotion, to be more authentic, to tell better stories and to use the whole range of your personality to wow your audience. You’ll get absolute honesty from your Ginger coach, in a way that builds your confidence.

6Faster and Better

Don’t struggle and procrastinate with your speech preparation. Your Ginger TED coach will cut through all of the stickiness and difficulty around speech writing and give you speed and certainty. The process will not only help you prepare this speech faster, but it will also benefit your future speech writing.

Book your 1-2-1 speaker coaching package now and you’ll get:

  • The entire World Class Speech Making Series

To make the most of your coaching sessions, you’ll work through the online training, formulate your ideas and then test them out in your coaching sessions. This makes for a high-impact series of coaching conversations.

  • TED Coaching session 1: Discovering your idea worth spreading 30min call

    Your coach will help you to spot the idea to frame your talk around. It may not take you 30 minutes, but this is the average. Bring along a few ideas and your coach will brainstorm with you to find the most powerful angle and wording to represent your idea.

  • TED Coaching session 2 & 3: Shaping your talk journey 2 x 30 min calls or 1 x 60 min

    Next, shape up your idea into a powerful journey for your audience. Using the training from the online videos, you’ll be ready to bring your work to your coach and get their advice on structure, stories, key language, talk timings, editing your ideas and anything else that’s relevant.

  • TED Coaching session 4: Confidence, power & impact 30mins

    Once your talk is nearing completion, it’s time to work on your personal power and confidence as a speaker. As relevant, we’ll help you with your nerves, body language (via skype), memory and personal expression.

  • TED Coaching session 5: We’ll watch, analyse and give you detailed recommendations on your talk of up to 20 minutes 60 mins

    Finally it’s time for your dry run. You’ll either record yourself, or speak live via skype. We’ll spend an hour watching your talk and giving you feedback on it. We’ll show you which parts have power and where you still need to hone your message or your delivery of it.

NB: this is a typical plan for 1-2-1 TED talk coaching. However, everyone’s process is slightly different and because of the flexible nature of 1-2-1 speech coaching you can spend more time on certain areas of your TED style talk if needed.

Important Details

Coaching Location

Unless agreed with your coach, 1-2-1 coaching takes place via skype. This allows us to work across the globe and allows us to help more speakers. We also have coaches who host clients at their premises in London – Notting Hill and Stoke Newington (subject to availability). If that’s of particular interest to you, please let us know when you book.

Your Coach

Once you book and give us your details, we’ll assign the best coach for you based on their availability and your background. If you know our team and would like to request a specific coach, please mention it upon booking.

Booking your sessions

Once you’re booked in, we’ll put you in touch with your coach to arrange your 5 x 1-2-1 sessions. You can do this in whatever timeframe works for you, but we’d recommend you take 2 months to complete the whole coaching package, including the online course.

Please book as far in advance as possible and allow approx. 2 weeks between enrolling and booking your first session, so that you can start the online content.

Your TED Coaching Package:

As mentioned above, the recommended package is the following, although you can tailor elements to suit your needs. Please discuss this with your coach on your first call:

  • TED Coaching session 1: Discovering your idea worth spreading (30min call)
  • TED Coaching session 2 & 3: Shaping your talk journey (2 x 30 min calls or 1 x 60 min)
  • TED Coaching session 4: Confidence, power & impact (30mins)
  • TED Coaching session 5: We’ll watch, analyse and give you detailed recommendations on your talk of up to 20 minutes (60 mins)

Making the most of your TED Coaching

To make the most of your time with your coach we recommend you come to your sessions highly prepared and ready for action. With all good public speaking we recommend you ‘jump into the action’ rather than clearing your throat and the same goes for your coaching time. There is no need to do too much introducing or explaining, just get straight in there.

This will ensure you get the very best value for money.

Do I have to skype?

Our 1-2-1 sessions are typically delivered over Skype, but if you can’t or don’t want to use Skype, we can use another platform, or you can dial your coach’s phone number. Ideally you will have a webcam link so your coach can see you and the physical aspects of your communication.

Further 1-2-1 sessions

If you find that your 5 coaching sessions aren’t enough, you can book follow-up sessions at a discount price. Please let your coach know if this is your situation.
