Michelle Enjoli Beato of Atlanta has been selected as a speaker for the inaugural Tedx event in Southampton, England Nov. 11, 2020, at the Mayflower Theatre. Beato was chosen out of over 100 applicants to be one of 12 speakers for the event and is one of only two selected from the United States.
TEDx Southampton will offer thought leaders, communities and individuals an opportunity to make their mark, give back and foster a positive outcome for themselves, the attendees and the wider audience.
“We’re thrilled to be staging this unique event to create some positivity and hope during this current difficult period for the UK,” said Lee Peck, License Holder and Co-Curator of Tedx Southampton. “TEDx is an incredible platform and I feel this would give people an opportunity to make their mark, give back and foster a really positive outcome for themselves, the attendees and the wider audience.”
The theme of the event will be centered around human to human connection and will include a focus on innovation, connectedness and untapping personal potential. This theme is timely given the current state of affairs and Beato’s inspiration behind her new company, Connect.
Connect is a coaching business dedicated to helping others learn how to connect to further their careers. Additionally, the company works with leaders to help them connect within teams to increase productivity and engagement. “I realized there was a gap in communication, understanding and real connection among multicultural and multigenerational employees and leaders at companies,” said Beato, founder of Connect. “I want to help students, professionals, leaders and entrepreneurs acquire the skills necessary for them to excel in an everchanging business environment.”
As a bilingual keynote speaker and career mentor, Beato’s entire career has been based on human to human connection and believes this opportunity is another example of how she can encourage others to use their unique stories to navigate their professional path to success. “While a degree and experience are important, it’s the soft skills that create opportunities, and I’m a testament to that,” said Beato.
