TED Speakers For Your 2017 Event

by Maddie Donnelly
TED Talk Speakers on Leadership, Business, Technology
We are proud to represent many repeat TED speakers who deliver extraordinary talks on achieving what may seem impossible—whether it’s groundbreaking leadership, physical endurance, technological breakthroughs, or savvy business know-how. Take a look:

Four-star General Stanley McChrystal is the former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan. Wired magazine said that “to hear McChrystal talk about leadership is like hearing Steve Jobs talk about innovation.”

12 people have been on the moon, and 5,000 have climbed Everest, but polar explorer Ben Saunders is the only person to ever successfully complete the 1,800-mile trek unsupported from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back. He is a three-time TED speaker whose talks focus on his belief that “No one else is an authority on your potential.”

Peter Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation, co-founder of Singularity University, and author of the best-selling book Abundance, is a dynamic speaker who shows his audience how to drive and incentivize breakthrough thinking in order to achieve clear, measurable results.

And we’re very pleased to be working with many TEDx speakers who are gaining more and more notoriety on the market:

Dex Torricke-Barton is the former head of communications at SpaceX, former executive communications manager at Facebook (and Mark Zuckerberg’s personal speechwriter), and a former executive speechwriter at Google. He has an arsenal of jaw-dropping anecdotes that illustrate lessons about moving to the middle of change to access opportunity, understanding connectivity as a universal force, and embracing the emergence of a global generation.

Salim Ismail is the former VP of Yahoo! and a best-selling author who now leads Singularity University. He focuses on “educating, inspiring, and empowering a new generation of leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges.”

Mitch Joel has been called upon by Google to explain digital marketing to Silicon Valley’s top executives. He is an expert at coaching brands on how to innovate and meet the needs of today’s wired consumer—with digital experiences.
