Women on the Stage is a powerful 8-week program designed to get you from dreaming about giving a talk to delivering one on stage. Tabby has helped hundreds of women discover their passion, craft their talk, and prepare to deliver their message to the world.
For Years I had a dream of Speaking at a TEDx Event
And I went through many stages with that dream:
Feeling not ready, but sure it would happen “some day”
Overwhelmed and unsure of where to start
Unsure of what my message was, even though I felt called to speak
Watching other friends give their talk, and then contending with my own feelings as their careers took off
Afraid if I tried, I would just spin my wheels and not get anywhere
Frustrated that I couldn’t get the whole of my message into 18 minutes or less
Until I finally decided enough was enough.
It was time to stop playing small.
“Before I took Tabby’s course, I was frustrated with not having my voice heard or respected to the degree I desired. Now that I have spoken on a much larger stage, I have more leverage. I’ve also grown a powerful network of influential women to keep my momentum going."
— Dr. Sarita Jackson, TEDxDelthorneWomen
“I can’t say enough positive amazing things about Tabby Biddle who coached me on my TEDx talk. She has a gift and ability to both support your mission and help you to be in a place that is empowering and authentic when you walk out on that stage.”
- Julia Huffman, TEDxFargo
One of my superpowers is helping women changemakers gain clarity, direction and focus.
I have helped hundreds of women prepare to deliver their message to the world. Stop dreaming about giving your talk, and let’s start doing it.
This 8-Week, Online Group Program Focuses On:
✔ Clarity on your Idea & Your “Big Why”
✔ Storytelling & How to Break Through Visibility Issues
✔ Writing Your Captivating Talk & Making Impact
✔ Getting Selected as a Speaker
✔ Mastering your Delivery and Enjoying Yourself on Stage
You’ll Walk Away With:
A crystal clear talk idea
knowledge of the art & science behind great storytelling
A full draft of your talk
Confidence as a public speaker
Tools to master delivery and Ace it on Stage
A strategy for getting selected as a speaker
All of this, plus a community of women changemakers to keep your momentum going.
“Working with Tabby was the catalyst that got me booked on the TEDx stage. She cuts through the weeds to get to the heart of your message.”
- Sonali Fiske, TEDxDelthorneWomen
“If you are in any way interested in doing a TEDx talk, Tabby Biddle is the woman to work with!”
- Dr. Juliana Morris
Women on the Stage is for you if:
✔ You’re an aspiring changemaker who knows you have a message to share with the world (even if you’re not clear on what that is)
✔ You’ve watched others on stage and felt an internal voice say, “You could do that one day”
✔ You want to make more social impact, but you keep kicking the can down the road because “you’re not ready.”
✔ You want to have your voice heard, catapult your career to the next level, get more speaking gigs, and expand your professional influence
“When I had a last-minute invitation to do a TEDx talk, I needed help turning a difficult, deeply personal narrative to a relatable and impactful talk. Tabby gave me the confidence to take risks and really be myself on stage. To date, my talk has more than 350,000 views and more than 350 supportive, positive comments.”
- Keely Herron, TEDxJacksonHole
“In working with Tabby, I learned a great deal about risk-taking, managing self-doubt and the power of a community. Tabby’s role in my life as a mentor has helped me build so much confidence as a leader. I couldn’t have done this without her.”
— Margo Tirado, TEDxGrantPark
