Part "idea whisperer," part message strategist, and part presentation coach, Tamsen Webster helps people and organizations like Verizon, State Street Bank, Ericsson, Johnson & Johnson, and Disney find and communicate the power of their ideas. She is the Executive Producer of TEDxCambridge, one of the oldest and largest locally organized “TED talk” events in the world. In former lives, she worked in both agencies and at nonprofits heading up brand, marketing, and fundraising communication strategy, along with a brief but enduring turn as a change management consultant. She was a reluctant marathoner...twice; is a winning ballroom dancer (in her mind); and everything she knows about people, speaking, and change, she learned at Weight Watchers. True story.

Find the Red Thread: Don’t just manage change. Master it.

In business, every day is filled with changes and challenges we can't see coming. But no matter the size of the change, or how little we can do to stop it, we still want to feel in control. The question is: How?

Starting with a little-known detail of a well-known myth, this keynote is about a simple but powerful way your audience can go beyond managing change to mastering it.

Through eye-opening examples from business and life, your audience will learn:

  • Why change is so unsettling and why typical approaches to “change management” too often go wrong
  • An actionable model for mastering change at both at the individual and organizational levels
  • What the “Red Thread” is, and how to find their own

 

Change the World in 18 Minutes or Less: An insider’s guide to the lessons of TED

With time and attention spans constantly dwindling, your leaders and teams need to change thinking and behavior -- quickly.

As it turns out, the secrets for how are right in front of us: TED talks. Those short 3- to 18-minute talks that, when successful, permanently change how you see the world.

This highly engaging session is a TED-talk insider’s tour through how to create change when time and attention are at a premium:

  • The secret story within the most popular TED talks...and the most effective business communications and brands
  • How and why people say “no” to change, and how to get a “yes” instead
  • A “TED template” your audience can use right away to turn ideas into action

 

Tune in, Turn On, Stand Out: Strategic speaking for [Your Industry]

Note: This talk is always customized to how your particular industry can most benefit from speaking as a form of thought leadership.

This often feels like a world of diminishing returns: new ideas don’t stay new for long, clients and customers have shorter and shorter attentions spans, and yet the need to differentiate — and convert — is as strong as ever.

Is the answer really some magical new product or process? No. The channels may have changed, but humans haven’t. There’s still nothing that beats the effectiveness -- and ROI -- of face-to-face time with your prospects.

In this practical, but empowering, session, your audience will learn:

  • How and where strategic speaking best fits into your brand strategy
  • How to find the right topics, messages, and experts in your organization
  • Three simple tools for using a strategic program to achieve your business goals
