I assist influencers to deliver messages that matter for the good of humanity.
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.
Interest in TED-style talks has permeated meetings and conferences everywhere, and with that, Hayley’s practice has broadened from TEDx speakers and speaking professionals to include anyone from any field with a good idea to present in a short or TED-style talk. If you want to use speaking to build your platform and gain visibility, you must be prepared to adapt to and embrace these changes.
An NSA member since 2002, Hayley provides keynotes and trainings on the Art of the Short Talk, as well as coaching services to individual speakers and events as a whole. Hayley was the designated Speaker Coach for six TEDxNASA events, and has had three talks rise to TED.com. NSA member Bruce Turkel's was selected as a TEDx Editor Pick of the Week in April 2014. Expert on Distinction Scott McKain says Hayley's popular Minibuk, Donʼt Tank Your TED Talk: 12 Mistakes Professional Speakers Make "should be used as a guide, for all speakers, for all talks."
