On the seven types of intelligence and why our education system only looks at two of these types. Things need to change. Barbara is the founder of OnYourFeet.ie, a presentations training company based in Dublin with clients across Ireland and the UK. Barbara has a natural talent for helping people to stand up and speak with confidence and influence, while still remaining true to their own personality and presenting style. As a presentations coach she works with a vast variety of people - young and old, senior executives to new hires and students, educated to uneducated. She has found that regardless of age, title, experience or education, many people consider themselves to be ?stupid? ? when in actual fact they have a particular type of ?intelligence? that is not always recognised. This is the topic she explores in her talk. Despite having no third level qualifications and leaving school with very average results, she has developed her own innate intelligence and is a mentor and coach to companies and clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 executives.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTallaght, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTallaght event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
