" Your Legacy is Every Life You Have Touched."

— Oprah Winfrey


Since I began Successful Speaker Now in September 2011, I have been involved in coaching TEDx speakers. To date, I have coached more than 135 TEDx related speakers from around the world. I am one of the most experienced TEDx coaches in Europe. American comedian and coach Greg Shapiro introduced me to Jim Stolze, the founder of TEDx in The Netherlands who later invited me in to coach TEDx Amsterdam in 2012. The rest is history.

Here are some of the TEDx events I have coached speakers for:

There is nothing like working with a speaker for several weeks to create and refine their speech and delivery and to see them get up on the stage and nail the speech and connect with the audience. I am always as nervous as the speaker, holding my breath with each sentence delivered, high fiving myself silently when the hit the marks we practiced. It is also remarkable to see myself in every speaker and in every speech with gestures, words and imagery offered by me. It is a great kick to see them successful and proud of their performances.

These are just some of the speakers I have coached over the last 9 years. I am honored to work with these visionary people to bring their ideas out into the world. They also remember me through the years because for some, this TEDx talk launched their businesses and careers. They trusted me to bring them and their stories up to the level to make the greatest impact. 

I truly was "the TEDx speaker's best friend" for a period of time - and they remember. 

What is my TEDx Legacy?

I have been blessed to be able to help hundreds of speakers from all walks of life and professions to develop their unique stories about their ideas worth sharing and ideas worth doing. A little secret of this speaker coach: There are glimpses of me and my heart in every single TEDx talk I have ever coached a speaker for. Now, THAT is a legacy...
