Rendering The Unspoken: my recent TED talk

Last week, I delivered another TED talk, this time at TEDxBAW, or otherwise known as TEDxBayArea Women. The conference organizational theme was women entrepreneurs around the globe, and there were many fascinating and inspirational talks throughout the day, by both men and women from many countries. I hope you enjoy it.  After the compulsory nerves leading up to it, I did too. And I met some terrific people who are working so hard to change the world.

    I viewed your new TEDtalk while hanging-out at a very crowded Starbucks,
    earbuds in, volume cranked. I laughed out loud so many times, that I noticed
    I had created a considerable curiosity factor amongst the other patrons.
    I couldn’t help myself. Liza — funny, funny, FUNNY stuff! A thoroughly delightful
    experience. I could feel a couple discreetly peering over my shoulder, and
    when the blank screen with the word “sex” appeared — and stayed, it seemed, for
    a very long time — I began to sweat.

    Your performance was fluid, calm, and very self-assured. (How do you do that?!)
    If you wanted, I’m certain you could do stand-up. A wonderfully poignant
    denouement as well. Bravo! Well done. (Just the process of preparing and
    performing the talk would make a great pilot for your TV series.)

    • Thanks, Rob! I practiced so much, such that I didn’t feel to terribly nervous. And I enjoy making people laugh! Not sure about the opening music…not my choice, but hey, can’t complain. There were some great talks that day, and really nice folks all around.
