John Bates: Developing your TED Message

Have you considered the immense value it could bring you as a leader if you were able to communicate your message and the message of your organization in a TED Style format?

As a leader you know that being a leader is no longer about barking out orders from behind a closed door. Leaders today must become masterful communicators and storytellers who can do far better than spitting out data. Today’s leaders must be able to emotionally engage not only their own organization but also potential business partners and customers.

But how can you do that, particularly if speaking is completely unfamiliar ground?  

Well stay tuned because our esteemed guest is a master at showing you exactly how to do just that!

John Bates's WHY is to bring out what is awesome inside every person, so it can live in the world and make a real difference.

John’s background was a founder, co-founder or very early stage employee at Internet related startup companies like BIGWORDS.com - which flamed out in the dotcom bomb, or Goldstar.com ... is still rocking and rolling.

John would always end up with the title Evangelist. He has raised several hundred million dollars with his various teams, in Silicon Valley and beyond.

Today, he trains and coaches the NASA Astronauts, top leaders at Johnson & Johnson, Accenture and more in leadership communication. He's one of the most prolific TED Format trainers in the world. What’s most interesting is that John Bates completely and totally blew it the first time on the TED Stage.
