I’m absolutely thrilled to be speaking at TEDxOxnard. The theme of code switching is central to my topic of finding meaning in madness, and it’s also something I continually practice.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 03, 2021
TEDx speaker and empowerment consultant Pierce J. Brooks announced today that he will be speaking in participation of the TEDxOxnard event on March 20, 2021 at 2 p.m. The speech, titled, “Finding Meaning in Madness”, is Brooks’ second TEDx appearance and a follow-up to his “Playing the Game of Social Pressure” talk at TEDxResedaBlvd in 2020. Brooks is among an incredible lineup of speakers and artists scheduled to take the stage hosted at Pacifica High School in Oxnard, CA. Tickets are available through their website on a suggested donation basis starting at $20 for this live-streamed occasion. Other featured speakers include: Brian Rosario, Catherine Aguilar, Dr. Lorri Santamaria, Melinda Wells and Rabbi Michael Lotker.
Through guest appearances and commentary on numerous expert podcasts such as Keep Moving Forward with Katy Galli, The Open Mic Podcast with Brett Allan and The Light Inside with Jeffrey Besecker, Brooks has proven himself as a prominent thought leader for self-help and teambuilding, earning acclaim from professional sports figures, including NBA commentator Chris Broussard, Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon and Emmy Award winning prominent activist & CNN Contributor Van Jones.
“I got to hear Pierce speak at a TEDx event and he was phenomenal. If you want to find the road that you deserve to be on, you have to watch his talk. It’ll lift you up. It’ll make you feel less alone,” said Dr. Mark Goulston, author and CNN Contributor.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be speaking at TEDxOxnard,” said Brooks. “The theme of code switching is central to my topic of finding meaning in madness, and it’s also something I continually practice. In just the past year, I have expanded Empowered Storytellers beyond public speaking into 1-on-1 and corporate coaching and have plans for a slate of empowerment-focused content in Q3 of this year.”
Staying in line with the TEDxOxnard theme of “Code Switching,” Brooks’ latest speech is about defining our own personalized madness and how we can find meaning in it using his Uncover, Discover, Recover signature framework to glean inspiration and clarity after trauma.
