Torin Perez: Speech Topics


① INCLUSIVE LEADER | ② STORYTELLING | ③ AUTHENTICALLY YOU | ④ LEAVING A LEGACY | ⑤ PERSONAL POWER | ⑥ FAILING GRATEFULLY

① What it takes to become an inclusive leader


Inclusion is great for business, but it’s also essential for living our best work lives. Torin believes that you can play a part in building workplace inclusion, and become an inclusive leader regardless of your rank, title or role. In this engaging keynote, Torin shares stories, psychology, inspiration and actionable strategies to help you on your way to becoming the best inclusive leader you can be.

② The keys to unlocking your storytelling ability


Through quieting the inner voice that questions if you are good enough and learning how to communicate effectively using a few simple story types, you will receive Torin’s blueprint to finding the power of your unique voice. Using insights from his experience as a public speaker and what he’s learned from providing guidance and coaching to TED Residents whose talks have collectively received over 12 million views on TED.com, Torin gives you the keys to unlock your storytelling ability.

③ How to be authentically you


If we don’t consciously stop to think about who we are and who we want to become, the endless influences vying to shape how we think, what we do, and how we feel about ourselves will create our reality for us. By identifying the kind of work you find fulfilling, gaining an understanding of the inevitable challenges to living with authenticity, and defining the personal and professional brand values you want to live by, you will walk away with the sense of courage necessary to be authentically you.

④ Leaving a legacy by finding the heart of your work


“Age is irrelevant; it’s what you do with you life that matters.” These are the words of Torin’s mentor, Frances Hesselbein, who has been widely admired as one of the world’s greatest leaders for decades. Inspired by these words and Frances’s recipe for living a meaningful life, Torin shares lessons you can learn from as you align yourself with a mission to work towards and add to your living legacy every day.

⑤ How to tap into your authentic personal power


Through visualizing a clear picture of what your authentic personal power will help you achieve, to facing the unavoidable doubts that creep in along the way, Torin will show you how to claim your personal power and communicate with confidence every day. In this playful session featuring dynamic audience participation and real actionable takeaways, come ready to give 100% and take away much more.

⑥ Failing gratefully


You say you want to grow, but you don’t want to experience failure. This is a paralyzing paradox for companies and people who don’t realize that failure is almost guaranteed when you are trying to do something new. As a person whose work was born out of a failure that shaped his philosophy on what it means to fail gratefully, the insights and stories Torin shares will inspire you to be more daring, resilient and grateful as you strive, succeed, fail, and fail again.
