"I can't believe my great luck in finding Devin Marks. He guided me every step of the way in crafting a TED talk that succeeded beyond my wildest expectations—it's now been seen on TED.com by more than 1.5 million people, in less than seven days time!

But much more important is Devin's warmth, joy in coaching, and obvious talent for helping people envision new possibilities for themselves."

The Back Story...

Dr. Robert Waldinger’s TEDx Talk (What makes a good life?) is an all-time success. Approaching 48 million views it is a legendary TOP 10 talk — for the most views of any TED or TEDx talk. His book (The Good Life) is an international, award winning bestseller.

But before all that... He was a respected (little known) Harvard researcher. He’d never even watched a TED Talk. He was also a “one and done” author who hated the writing process. He didn’t even have an active social media account or website.

Devin worked with him — almost daily — on message clarity and delivery refinement. Later he suggested a co-author collaboration to launch an ongoing education campaign.
