Communication is a Gift | Nick Kinder | TEDxStMaryCSSchool


In order to create lasting change, we must learn to communicate in a way that engages others to understand our vision and ultimately inspire them to into action. The problem is, this kind of communication is not taught in schools or in business. It’s not something that most feel comfortable doing. We have to learn how to clearly articulate our message and share it using story. These may be the tools of change-makers, but anyone can use them. At any time. For any kind of communication. And they may just be the solution to our epidemic of poor communication. A keynote speaker, communication coach, and eternal entrepreneur, Nick is passionate about innovation and communication. A former actor, teacher, and comedian, Nick was the founding partner, creative director, and speaker coach at engine communication + events. In 2013, Nick opened his own coaching practice Kindler & Company, focusing on developing the communication and speaking skills of leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists and academics. He then joined TEDxToronto as a coach, eventually taking on the role Director of Programming. Nick is currently a partner and co-founder of Talk Boutique, a speaker development, speaker representation, and event curation company helping leaders communicate their ideas and innovation so it’s understood and embraced by the world. Nick is also the Head of Programming for SingularityU Canada, a global learning and innovation community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges and build an abundant future for all. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
