Is there a TED-style talk in you? Now Talk on Purpose!
Congratulations to the 40 graduates of Slow School's "Is there a TED-style talk in you?" program, including our 12 most recent grads from Victoria's Department of Health and Human Services.

This program has proven to be nothing short of life-changing for participants.

It’s helped them advance their speaking skills and confidently share their stories in front of a live audience. It’s helped them reconnect with what truly matters, to uncover the deepest reasons behind what they do - their purpose. As a result, some participants have started brand new businesses, others have found renewed passion for their work, and yet others have injected their old business with a new-found sense of purpose and vision.

You can check out some of our amazing past talks on Slow School's YouTube channel.

Clarity of purpose is what this program offers. That’s why we’ve decided to rename it Talk on Purpose and introduce a condensed four-day course that will see you unearthing, crafting and sharing your own talk (yes, still TED-style) in just four days. We hope that you’ll join us and be one of the first to experience this new revolutionary program for change-makers.

Please note that there’s only one public program being held in Melbourne for the remainder of this year, so if you’re serious about doing it, now’s your chance.

Check out the course details here and call Carolyn on 0412 806 950 if you have any questions.
