ATTENTION THOUGHT LEADERS
A TEDx Talk To Skyrocket
Your Influence, Income & Impact!
Dear Thought Leaders,
Imagine if you could get instant credibility with your audience?
Good news. You can. This is all possible from achieving your own TEDx talk. It is why a TEDx is so valuable, it all starts with your decision to make it happen and doing the (right) work to get it booked!
If you've ever wondered how others achieve TEDx and why can't it be you?
Here's the secret...
The reality is many are overwhelmed with all the things they could do, they are unable to carve out the time needed amoung everthing else they have going on. If they do make the time, then it's not clear where to start, what is the best use of their time or what is the next step to take?
After all this, if they are actually doing consistent work to make it happen, they can still repeatedly get passed over by someone who has cracked the code to get on the TEDx stage. Someone with some "insider" knowledge or hacks (like I have gained). As well as my own TEDx, I have interviewed many other TEDx speakers, TEDx organisers and helped people around the world apply what it takes to get on the "red dot".
Every month, there are up to two hundred TEDx events all over the world, so your opportunity is there. This also means lots of these events are closing their speaker applications within the coming months as well. If you are interested in doing a TEDx Talk in the next six to twelve months from now, this message is for you!
*If you wanted to do one before that, this is your reality check, chances are you've already missed out on that event (Don't let another one slip past you).
Make no mistake, it is hard to get accepted, event organisers are usually overwhelmed with applications, but I believe everyone has the opportunity to do a TEDx talk (if they choose). You just need:
Don't take it all on alone, lets talk (below).

Interested in achieving your own TEDx talk ?
If not now, when?
Obviously there is always an exception to the rule, maybe a TEDx organiser will "discover you" *note - this is rare! If you don't find your own solution to getting on that TEDx stage, months (and years) will fly and the reality is it may never happen unless you stop for a minute to make your stand. A lot of people I speak to have put a TED-style talk on their bucket list as something that they put off for the future...
This can be a long process even when your doing everything you can, timing is never perfect, but the best time to begin is always today (no matter how small the action - deciding to speak to me is one!).
If your anything like me, you will not want to wait around for the rare chance of a TEDx event reaching out to you "someday". Why wait, there will always be "reasons" you can tell yourself, a better idea, more experience, more time to rehearse, more breathing room. Just know these reasons or more accurately excuses will always be there. Start to get the benefits of giving this talk sooner rather than later.
There is another way.
Some key question's on my clients minds...
"What is my idea worth sharing or is my idea worth sharing?"
This is why I have dedicated an entire training module specifically to this, it is why it is constantly reviewed through the process and you are always able to "bounce" your potential adjustments or new versions of your idea to me and the community. The TEDx is a specifc platform and there are some idea's that will fly and some that just don't fit this stage - We have you covered so you don't waste your opportunity with an organiser.
"I need the right connections, can you help?"
I have an ever growing list of organisers that I have interviewed and built a relationship with. These full raw video interview's are exclusively part of the TalkXcelerator program. Every organiser and event is different. To make sure you get some specific "insider" information to increase your chances I guarantee at least one interview specifically arranged, recorded and added to our members "vault" from the list you create as part of the TalkXcelerator process. We also cover the right way of contacting and connecting with decision makers inside the training modules.
Many clients come to me unclear in what it takes to make onto the Red Spot, the best IDEA or how to best share their idea, not moving forward and frustrated with the time that's passing without getting any closer to TEDx. They are not sure exactly what their event organsier want's from them and how to stand out from the pack. Ultimately a lack of clarity in the whole process of being able to land a TEDx talk!
I've been working on this very problem since 2015, firstly through my own experience to secure a TEDx talk, then once completed, others started asking me...
"Adam, so how do you get a TEDx talk?"
I began offering advice. At that point I only had my own experience to go on, so I started researching again, now speaking to other TEDx speakers and TEDx organisers. In 2018 I began testing the findings, the strategy, insights, processes, hacks in a more systematic way helping clients through my TalkXcelerator process to accelerate their chances. I recently created a masterclass "How To" resource that you can watch below...
You might be wondering who exactly I am at this point?
As a two-time bestselling author, coach and TEDx speaker. I host the top-ranked podcast 'Amplify Your Mission' (formerly 'Awaken Your Alpha') interviewing the world’s elite in over 500 episodes since 2014. My first solo book 'Awaken Your Alpha - Tales & Tactics To Thrive' became an international bestseller off the back of my TEDx talk in October 2018.
I'm a former teacher and international pole-vaulter who was attempting to reach the Olympics in 2008 when all this was cut short by a freak accident. During the following two years on crutches, dealing with the realisation I would never compete again, I hit rock bottom. I rebuilt my dreams and identity, eventually fighting back and refocusing to help others achieve, regardless of their own obstacles.
As a coach and mentor, I cultivate the mindset needed for fulfilment while supporting action and accountability to enhance your legacy. As a keynote speaker, I gave the TEDx talk Awaken Your Alpha, How to Rise Up.
I have since been featured on...
Originally from West Sussex in the south of England, I recently achieved a lifelong dream, moving my young family to the United States.
My experience on the RED SPOT has helped make all this a reality.
I did my first TEDx talk in 2016 that led to speaking on stage at multiple industry events, hosting Hollwood redcarpets, international travel, paid keynotes, landing the right clients and all using a simple click to watch a couple of minutes of my TEDx talk. My talk even lead to publishing a bestselling book in late 2018 based on my TEDx talk (which I then used to promote the book as well).
TEDx is such a powerful platform and such a milestone in many people's lives (including mine). I felt called to help others share their message in this way.
I love it!
If a normal bloke from England can get his ideas onto the TEDx stage, there is no reason you can't get there (a lot quicker) too.
It took me years to achieve my talk, but I have since created The TalkXcelerator Program and want to share my thousands of hours of expertise with you.
Now, you can secure your own talk on the red spot!
Inside the TalkXcelerator, you'll find 10 modules of in-depth video training lessons along with LIVE Q&A meetings and specific action steps week by week. You get pdfs, worksheets, templates, a closed community of others actively on the TalkX hunt and access to "insider" interviews/resources specific to your needs. You'll gain crucial feedback at key stages of your TalkX journey to avoid procrastination and keep things moving for you!
"Words can't contain my excitement, it's official I'm now a TEDx Speaker.
Massive thanks go to Adam Lewis Walker for spurring me on when I doubted it would ever happen. Before starting on this journey with Adam, I knew about TEDx talks, knew people that had done but didn’t know how to go about getting one for myself I came into the process to work with Adam as he has been there and done it and got the t-shirt with regards to securing his and others TEDx talks.
What I liked most about the process, is that you can go very much at your pace, but you are set weekly accountability tasks to keep you on point and to keep moving forward on this journey. You have access to the material long after you have finished, so if you wanted a better understanding of something you could go back at any time and visit that particular section. What I liked most of all during the process where the regular Q&A calls (competition, reassurance, a different perspective that you may have not thought about). What I appreciated about Adam was his attention to detail and his attentiveness to your individual needs. For example, during the process when you need to go on the hunt for your talk, he asked which events you would like to have more insider knowledge about if he was able to speak to them.
I am a TEDx Speaker as a result of doing Adam’s TalkXcelerator course.
Within a few weeks of starting, I was confident and now had a clear path towards being on the TEDx stage in the coming year. Not forgetting that by week 5 of doing the course I was able to secure a place as guest of honour at an upcoming TEDx in addition to them wanting me to give a TEDx talk at their next event!
I would highly recommend this course to others, because (I know this sounds cliche) it will open up so many doors and the opportunities, as a result, are endless. My final point and most poignant of all - he gets access to TEDx organisers, including your area, finds out exactly what they are after for this year and as just important the subtle things that turns them off an application!

"I’m so excited I booked my TEDx Talk!
I have been working with Adam for about 8 weeks now. I have been showing up doing all the work. If it wasn’t for all that support, the accountability, believing in me I would not have been here - I’m forever grateful"
NOW as TEDx Speaker in 2021 (during the pandemic):
"I just wanted to take a moment and to say thank you so much for all that you've done for me these past seven months.
Helping me create my speech, helping me deliver my speech, helping give me the proper components because at the virtual conference yesterday I can tell you that based on the feedback I killed the speech, I killed it with compassion, I killed it with gestures and I killed it with my message.
I just wanted to give you a call and just let you know thank you so much for helping me, not giving up on me and helping me through this process. I really truly appreciate you, our friendship and what we are able to create together. I just wanted to share that with you, thank you, thank you, thank you, I absolutely adore you.”
Teen Confidence Expert and Bestselling Author (CA, USA)
"My TEDx talk has passed 170,000 views and counting.
I had always wanted to be a TEDx speaker, I assumed it was just a matter of applying and waiting for the responses. I learned on the course it is much more detailed than that. There are specific formats, things you are expected to know as a speaker and things you are expected not to do!
I would have failed miserably if I had not taken Adam’s course.
Adam is a tremendous teacher who is really committed to his students. He gives a lot of attention, extra time, interest and clearly knows the process. I remember the exciting news when my application for a TEDx talk was accepted. I really owe Adam big time for this. He helped me to know how to present all aspects of the talk including the application.
There were some real bonuses to the course, Adam conducted interview's with some actual TEDx organizers (specific to each student) so we could see what they wanted from us. Things I wouldn't have thought about on my own. He interviewed the organizers of the event I secured my talk at so I had a great idea of what they looked for in an application!
Adam reviewed and modified my pitch. So I was really confident that I had a good application which was not the case earlier in the course. This is an amazing program, I got the help I needed from Adam. Anyone who is interested in a TEDx talk and learning how to prepare for it, this is the way to go.
Take the course, eliminate the doubts, there is stuff here you won’t get from anybody else!
Thanks again Adam"

Why is a TEDx Talk so valuable?
Many see it as a major public relations win and they'd be right! The TED platform has grown exponentially along with its popularity and many famous thought leaders have given their talk. Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Simon Sinek, David Blaine, Sir Ken Robinson and many more. Who wouldn't want to join that list?
Not suprisingly, it turns out that many people do want to give a TEDx talk and here's why...
"In the last three decades TED talks have become cultural phenomenon and an increasingly important credential for those in business and entertainment"
Fortunately the TED and TEDx stage isn’t just for famous people. Many of the most popular talks were delivered by people who were relatively unknown before their talks went viral. Unless your a TED geek like me, no one really differentiate's between TED and TEDx talks when it comes to credibility and association with the TED brand. Yes I want to do a TED talk one day, but it is A LOT harder to get on that stage and the main extra return in comparisson to TEDx would be to feed an ego!
Get your idea out there. Compared to books, blog posts, interviews and media coverage, the TEDx talk blows them all out of the water. It only takes is 10-18 minutes of you on that famous red spot to bring you and your idea to the next level. A TEDx talk is the best thing you can do for yourself.
It positions you as an expert. Does a future business partner or client want to know more about what you do? Shoot them your talk link. Include it in your email signature so when someone reaches out to you to work with you, they already see you as an expert and understand what your all about.
Build your personal brand. With the huge size and credibility of the platform it’s an incredibly powerful way to build a brand. Feature it and the link on all your social media profiles
Delivering a great TEDx talk might be even more valuable for your career than making your book a Best Seller, since so many people watch great TEDx talks on YouTube. If it is great, it might well be seen on YouTube by hundreds of thousands of people all around the world – promoting you and your message for years to come.
Use it as your speaker reel. oIf you follow the steps in finding the right TEDx event you will get a highly polished and professional video of your performance. TED never pays any of it's speakers, they understand you get a lot from the exposure and it is an investment in your future. That video alone is worth your investment of time and resources.
The social proof alone can bring you more business. It has had a financial impact for me. Each person's experience is different in exactly what it can bring, but a TEDx talk is definately one of the most valuable assets that a ambitious professional can have.
Authors and aspiring authors. Want to write a book or your next book? Doing a TEDx talk can be a major boost to book sales, landing a publisher and gaining support for turning your ideas into a bestseller.
Credibility. Imagine someone Googling your name and the first thing they see is a TEDx talk with thousands of views. It changes peoples perception.

"Before the program I was a little confused about how to get a TEDx (talk) how to apply for one...
With Adam's guidance and support each week, it really gave me the confidence that you can actually go out there and do a TEDx... I got through the process where these people (TEDx event organizers) actually wanted to work with me, they wanted me to be on their TEDx stage. I wouldn't be where I am now had it been for going through the process...
I highly recommend doing it. Adam is legit, he supports you all the way through and through. The follow-up and the accountability you need to get your first TEDx talk.
