Event description


If you had the opportunity to deliver one speech that put you on the map for good, what would you talk about?

Join Alex Merry, speaker coach and Curator of TEDxClapham* who has flown to New York from London for one night only to showcase his formula for landing major speaking gigs.

Alex used public speaking to turn a small London start-up he was co-running into an award-winning, 250-person strong company raising over £12.5 million along the way.

Attendees will walk away from the event with the tools that will assist them in:

  • Identifying and developing a relevant, informative and lucrative idea

  • Learning how to build a substantial speaking portfolio

  • Understanding the right (and wrong way) to approach and pitch event organizers

  • Landing international speaking gigs

  • The right way to present to and engage your audience

Alex will share his insights not just as a speaker coach that has worked with globally recognised business leaders, best-selling authors, philanthropists, a member of the special forces and former world champion boxer, but also as someone who gives experts the opportunity to speak on the TEDxClapham stage.

When he's not helping the people land gigs on the big stage, Alex is advising them on writing and delivering talks that build brands, raise finance, increase sales, start movements, lobby governments and transform businesses, creating globally recognised industry leaders along the way.

Done right, speeches change lives but don't just take his word for it.

"Thanks to Alex, my talk was the 5th most watched TEDx talk of 2016 and is now in the top 100 most-watched TEDx talks of all time. That one speech has given me valuable connections from around the world." Roger Frampton, Model and Movement Coach.

“If you are looking to accelerate your business, brand or cause through public speaking, Alex is the guy to do just that.” Brian Rose, CEO, London Real.

"So it seems like you taught me well and that I have got the hang of this speaking thing, I got a bloody standing ovation yesterday. Apparently, it was the first standing ovation they’ve ever had!" Whitney Iles, CEO of Project 507.

At this one-off masterclass, Alex will be showcasing his formula for landing speaking engagements that get you noticed globally, regardless of whether you're a first-time speaker or seasoned speaker that wants better results.
