ROAD TO THE RED CIRCLE

Join us for an action-packed three-day speaker training experience in Santa Barbara, California on February 16th, 17th and 18th, 2018.

The best speakers are memorable for a reason. Think of the last TED Talk you have watched or that Keynote presentation you keep thinking about. The great news is that you can learn the same techniques and tools those master presenters use every day and put those strategies to work immediately!

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SPEAKING IN FRONT OF:

  • thousands of attendees at a high stakes event?

  • ten people at board meetings?
  • one person in an elevator?

If you are, you’re in the right place! This workshop will significantly improve your communication and leadership skills whenever you are in front of an audience.

THE EVENT IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO:

  • enhance every aspect of your speaking skills from content to performance
  • use tools and techniques you can apply every day
  • explore the power of the short form talk
  • increase your confidence
  • make the best first impressions
  • captivate an audience
  • change people’s lives
  • find your core idea
  • create your own TED-style talk
  • speak without notes every time
  • use the art of story telling
  • learn the business of speaking
  • discover your personal brand
  • increase your speaking opportunities
  • become a thought leader in your field

INTERESTED?

Imagine being armed with a completely new level of knowledge and set of skills that you can put to use right away.
If you join us at our annual Road to the Red Circle Workshop, this will be true for you.

  • I thought I had public speaking down pat. I’ve addressed audiences all over the world ranging from 62 to 1000 people. But going into that red circle at TEDx, and connecting with a vastly diverse audience on an idea that can be shared around the world is like moving to another planet. Kymberlee made that move effortless and exciting. As a former Green Beret, I have followed a lot of quality leaders and coaches, and I would follow Kymberlee anywhere… Especially into the red circle.

HOW WILL WE BE SPENDING OUR TIME AT THE WORKSHOP?

The experience will take place at the Narrative Loft on February 16th through 18th, 2018. Day 1 will begin at 10am and end at 5:00pm. Day 2 will begin at 10am and end at 5:00pm. Day 3 will begin at 10am and end at 2:00pm. You will learn how to prep for your talk, how to work through fear and anxiety, how to create a compelling story to open any talk you may give, how to find and deliver your core idea, how to close any talk, how to enhance your performance skills, how to handle situations when something goes wrong, how to practice, and much much more.

WHO ARE THE SPEAKERS AT THIS WORKSHOP?

KYMBERLEE WEIL, SPEAKING STRATEGIST AND HOST

Kymberlee is obsessed with the art of speaking. She has coached over 100 TEDx speakers on all aspects of their presentations from content to performance and everything in-between. She has grown up with TED, attending the annual TED event for 13 years in a row and she has produced multiple TEDx conferences as well. Kymberlee is a professional speaker herself, often speaking about her unique approach to overcoming obstacles. In her athletic pursuits, she is a CrossFitter and is a Fourth Dan Black Belt, the Master level in the Korean Martial Art, Hapkido. Using strategies learned in sports, Kymberlee’s passion is teaching breakthrough thinking to enable everyone she works with to achieve their peak performance.


ALAN IRWIN, LIVE PERFORMANCE SPECIALIST

Alan knows how to work a stage and captivate a room. He has been improvising for 26 years, and teaching improv for most of that. He’s used that experience when speaking on a wide variety of topics including infrared technology and robotics; crisis intervention and suicide prevention; and his personal interests such as cheese making and geek culture. His ability to take complex subjects and make them both accessible and fun has been his secret weapon, and it has served him well in speaking engagements all over the world.


SANDI ZABARSKY, CONTENT COACH

Sandi has the rare ability to find the pearl in the oyster every time as it relates to developing an effective speech. With an extensive background in English and Speech, she helps speakers shift through multiple ideas and funnel them into a compelling talk that has great transitions and flows well. She has worked with many TEDx speakers to help them hone their ideas worth spreading and write a talk that has lasting impact. Her passion is playing with language and she loves nothing better than supporting writers and bloggers in their quest to deliver the perfect message.

  • Giving a TED talk was incredibly rewarding, and one big reason was Kymberlee. She really knows the craft of storytelling, and she was willing to make sure I was telling the story I needed to tell. I was not always easy to work with, but she was patient when patience was needed and she was assertive when that’s what was needed. I trusted Kymberlee because I knew that she would be both honest and kind. About a week before the event, I was ready to pull out because I was feeling so anxious. Kymberlee was not phased — she listened to my rant, smiled with empathy and then got me refocused where I needed to be. So, here’s the bottom line — if you have the chance to get on the TED stage, do it! If you have the chance to have Kymberlee as your coach, definitely do it! Working with her was an incredibly worthwhile investment. I know that the final result was greatly enhanced by her expertise and her commitment.

READY TO JOIN US?

YES. YES I AM!
  • “As someone who has limited experience with public speaking and who is not very comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people, I was nervous about delivering a TEDx talk to my school community. Kymberlee, however, helped me get to a place where I not only felt comfortable speaking to a room of hundreds of people but confident as well. Kymberlee was instrumental in guiding me through the articulation of my idea and provided specific, honest feedback throughout the entire process. With Kymberlee’s invaluable insight, I was able to give my talk with assurance and clarity.”

  • “Kymberlee, well, this was the first time I’ve ever been coached as you know. Twenty+ years of paid public speaking, and you’re the first. You made me look into each thought for its deeper meaning, made me stretch for a title that would motivate, made me aware of the length of each story as it threads to the moral. For all of this, thanks. Quite an experience, this.”
