Since my breakup in September, I have vowed to take every opportunity that has come my way and work myself silly to achieve all the things I’ve always wanted to do.
Becoming a published author on Huffington Post ticked a massive box on my bucket list but there was one equally as big thing I wanted to do and that was talk at a TEDx conference and well… it’s happening!
I am so excited to tell you all that I will be speaking at TEDx Bollington on the 16th June about how social media can be used to encourage face to face conversations about taboo subjects.
That might sound a bit long but the short title of the piece is ‘You’re Not Alone’ and that perfectly summarises what I work to make everyone one of my followers on here and on social media feel, that you’re not alone.
I have chosen to share the lows of my life online in the most public of ways but have got such strength and confidence from doing so, as well as helping others and I am so passionate about educating other people to use social media in this way too which is what I’ll be speaking about during my TEDx talk.
I am one of a fantastic lineup of 8 speakers and the theme of the event is ‘The Art of Connection’ and all 8 of us will be speaking about totally different topics but all surrounding this theme, so it really is set to be a fantastic few hours.
If you’re local, tickets will go on sale mid-February and I’ll share the link to buy tickets once I have them but if you can’t make the event, my talk will be streamed online for you to watch wherever you are and it really would mean the world if you could tune in.
I am so so excited for the whole TEDx experience and i’m in the planning and early rehearsal stages now, so I can’t wait for everything to come.
Thank you for the support on here and online because it always means the worlds and really is the inspiration behind this talk.
