Kate Nichols & Ann-MarieANN-MARIE SUPPORTS TED:

The TED Fellows program brings young innovators from around the world into the TED community in order to amplify the impact of their projects and activities.

SupporTED Collaboratorium for TED in New Orleans
Ann-Marie was an AdvocateCoach for TED Fellows at the New Orleans TED Collaboratorium in April, 2011.  She continues to be affiliated with TEDFellows in a coaching capacity. She loves it!


“Working with Ann-Marie has been a joy. Each conversation we have, I lay before her a tangle of goals, commitments, and problems.  Over the course of our talk, we loosen the knotted mess, shake out the bits and pieces that have gotten stuck inside, and set about unraveling. Ann-Marie uses difficult questions, insightful listening, and deep belly laughs to help me identify the fixed pieces and the ones with flexibility. Whether or not we’re able to untie each knot by the end of our session, I always leave with an understanding of how to approach what I need to do with more grace and ease.”

“Ann Marie was my advocate at a unique coaching workshop – a supporTED Collaboratorium. With 7 other coaches in the room, Ann Marie intuitively, through years of experience and empathy, was able to create a sphere of safety and uplifting support for me. From the first conversation with her, I felt connection and grounded wisdom.”
