Our origin.

(How we got this idea. Pun intended).

In 2009 after Ruth Milligan founded the first TEDxColumbus, she went looking for someone who could help coach her next round of speakers in content framing and storytelling. When she came up dry, she founded Articulation.

Since 2009, we have coached over 400 speakers in the TED-style, both on stages with official TEDx licenses and private-label events we organize for our clients.
