Need A Guest Speaker?

There seems to be a lot of interest in my story of how I brought TEDxTauranga to Tauranga.

I’ve told this story to these groups so far:

  1. BOP National Speakers Group / Apr 2016
  2. Project Management Institute / Apr 2016
  3. Otumoetai Lions / Jul 2016
  4. Otumoetai Rotary / July 2016
  5. Cherrywood Probus / Aug 2016
  6. Mens Breakfast @ St Columba Church / Sep 2016
  7. Bob Owens Retirement Village / Mar 2019

And I have a few more bookings in my calendar, but I’d like more. Can you help?

There is a small amount of political content in my story (but I can remove it if you like). I leave it to the host to mention my ambitions at the end if they so choose, or sometimes in comes up during the questions at the end.

My talk is entitled: “Find out how to motivate a team of 24 to donate 3000 hours of their time to run a full day event that changes peoples lives

My intro:
Sheldon is best known in Tauranga for bringing TEDxTauranga to our city. The event is now in its 4th year, run by unpaid volunteers and had 1010 people in the audience in the 2015 event. Previous to that Sheldon brought Tauranga StartUp Weekend to the city (now in it’s 5th year). In that event entrepreneurs can go from an idea scribbled on a scrap of paper to a company with co-founders, investors, customers and a product within 54 hours. By day, Sheldon provides marketing advice to clients and has done so since 2009. In that time he has earnt an MBA from Waikato University and has helped raise 3 young boys 6, 4, 2 years old with his wife. Sheldon has recently discovered his purpose in life. It is to connect people together.

Here’s a video of my 5 minute version of my story that I presented at the Priority One AGM.

Do you belong to a community group with members in the Otumoetai/Pyes Pa ward that would like to hear my story?
