HAYLEY FOSTER Crafting Your Short Talk for a BIG Impact - TEDx Expert!

Hayley Foster, the Short Talk Expert™, has coached hundreds of TEDx presenters – CEOs, novices, educators, artists and astronauts – and over a hundred talks by speaking professionals. Her experience as one of the original TEDx organizers yielded a proprietary process for crafting original, compelling core messages that matter. Many of her distinguished clients agree, crafting and delivering a TEDx talk was the single best contribution to their professional development in years.
