How I Prepared For My First TedX Talk
The theme of the TedX event was Rethinking Relationships. My idea worth sharing was that students with mediocre grades shouldn't be looked down upon instead mediocrity in school could be an indicator that the child may be destined for leadership. My talk would be entitled C-student to the C-suite. Basically, I would be asking everyone to rethink the relationship we have with grades and what that tells us about a child since I had been an average student and made it to the C-suite I was the perfect one to dive into this topic. After two months, many phone calls, thank you notes and pleading, I was officially told that I had been selected for TedXBocaRaton. Yay!!!!! I was elated and right away I sat down to draft my talk.
