On Thursday, July 9th friends of the Legacy community had the opportunity to hear from Saleema Vellani as she shared her “10 Tips to Land Your Spot on a TEDx Stage!” In addition to her ten tips, Saleema shared an honest truth about the challenges in applying for a position on a TEDx stage and the importance of learning from our failures. A highlight moment of the discussion was the idea that “TEDx talks are not about being a professional or public speaker, it’s about having a great idea that matters.”
