Established in 2014, FRESH represents the next generation shaping 21st century thinking – and action – with fresh ideas and groundbreaking work.

From ideas
to action

Our speakers don’t just share great ideas, but compel people to action. From an ER doctor igniting violence prevention work in Brooklyn, to a YouTube influencer demystifying the transgender experience, to a mother and engineer who designed a birthing kit impacting 1 million lives across the globe, our speakers provide perspectives you’ve never heard, and deliver catalytic talks to generate true awe – and impact.

Thought leadership,

We’re uncovering the brilliant new leaders who are shaping the 21st century. For too long, speakers have derived authority from fancy titles, overhyped books, and relationships formed within elite institutions and events. This outdated and homogenous culture not only breeds boredom and myopic thinking, but also reinforces structural inequalities. It’s time to ensure that all great speakers have a place at the podium.

We’re an “if not us, who?” kind of crew. Our small but mighty team is made up of award-winning writers, TED speakers, and facilitators. We have curated and coached for over a dozen high profile institutions across the globe, like The Obama Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Sundance Institute, and have coached many main stage TED speakers, with cumulative views exceeding 50 million.
