Bolstered by a theme of community empowerment, emblazoned as ‘Two Hands’, those taking the stage will offer a unique tale of mammoth success (or failure) or a trend-setting idea poised to affect real, positive change. And audience members will be there to witness all of it. TEDxCasey will also be held over three sessions, one in the afternoon with a focus on youth, and two on the main stage later in the evening. To be held on 28 April 2019 in Bunjil Place’s magnificent theatre.

Update from the TEDxCasey Curation Team

It is only one month to go before TEDxCasey hits the stages at Bunjil Place so don’t miss out.

Our main stage speakers have been hard at work developing their talks and with another month to polish them to a high sheen they are going to awe, inspire and amaze you!

Our session one speakers are no less inspiring.

In fact they may be even more inspiring given their ages ranging between 15 and 18 years old.   

The curation team have had the pleasure of working with these wonderful young people to help them turn their ideas into talks worthy of the TEDx Stage. 

This is a free session so book now. We only have 200 places for this session.

Mediation Institute

Mediation Institute

Mediation Institute is on a mission to end family violence and abusive workplace behaviour. It’s a big job, so we’re hard at work training and supporting dispute resolution professionals throughout Australia and the world. Mediation, at it’s best, is a process where people involved in disputes are empowered to solve their own problems, rather than relying on lawyers and judges to make decisions about their lives for them.

Visit www.mediationinstitute.edu.au to find out more about this sponsor.

We believe completely in the power of talking, sharing points of views and exploring differences in a respectful way.

When a common understanding and a shared vision is established, the magic of collaboration can happen. Collaboration can transform disputes into new opportunities and bring different people together to change the world (for the better).

That is why we are passionate supporters of TED and TEDx.

The team at Mediation Institute are working against the tide of prejudice, intolerance and disrespect that gets too much attention by helping to bring to the TEDx stage the visionaries in our community with ideas worth spreading.

We are proud to sponsor and support the very first TEDxCasey and support the “Two Hands” theme which for us talks about practical applications and collaboration.

Clearly Talking

Clearly Talking helps aspiring speakers to become inspiring

We are honoured to be assisting TEDxCasey in preparing this talented group of speakers give their talks at this year’s TEDxCasey event. Congratulations to everyone selected – you were up against a tough field and good luck as you share your ideas on this amazing platform.

Clearly Talking helping people communicate for over twelve years.

Public speaking is often cited as people’s number one fear so it’s reasonable to feel nervous about having to give a presentation in front of colleagues or speak at a conference. We are not naturally equipped to be speakers; in fact some of our human instincts can work against this.

Everyone has something worth sharing –
but it don’t always seem like that
Everyone has something interesting to say –
but it doesn’t always sound like that
Everyone has something in their heart to give –
but it doesn’t always feel like that

Business owners and professionals are often excellent at what they do but lack the ability to communicate this with passion and enthusiasm to an audience. The key is to identify and share your passion for your subject and communicate that effectively with your audience. 

In addition to physical aspects of public speaking, like breath control, speech writing, posture and projection, we believe that being more authentic is a fundamental skill all presenters must learn.

To achieve this we work on three key areas:

Your Values:                   having a good understanding of the intangible things in life that are important to you

Your Strengths:            knowing what you’re good at and how these align with your values

Your Emotions:             understanding how to connect with other people and persuade them that you are worth believing.

To be a good speaker, you need all three to be working well for you.
