Get to an idea worth spreading with a masterclass with Cyndi Stivers ’78, Encourager-in-Chief, TED Residency.

Storytelling is an ancient human tradition — it can transform the way people engage with you and your ideas. But how do you get to an idea that’s worth sharing? What makes your idea—and the way you present yourself—stand out? Join us for a hands-on workshop that will lead you through the process of defining — and refining — one precious, unique, and valuable concept that has the power to inspire audiences.

Cyndi Stivers, an idea incubator at TED headquarters in New York, started out in hot-type newspapers while still a Barnard undergrad and has since shepherded media startups and reinvigorated venerable brands on nearly every platform, including magazines, television, radio and online, right back to the early days of the consumer internet. From 1995 to 2005, while in charge of North American operations for London-based Time Out Group Ltd., she led the creation of Time Out magazines, guidebooks and websites for New York and Chicago. She served on the Barnard College Board of Trustees from 2005 until this year and won the College’s Women of Achievement Award in 2013.
