In this episode of Connection Loop, we are proud to share our conversation with Ryan Conlan. Speaking with Dubb founder Ruben Dua, Ryan shares insights and advice related to making disabilities a superpower. Some of the insights exchanged in this episode include the following:

  • Opportunities to become a TEDx speaker can come from anywhere. For Ryan, he was able to leverage a professor’s advice to gain a spot at a local TEDx event.
  • While there is often shame about a condition like dyslexia, Ryan found the courage to speak about it. He dug into the research around dyslexia and felt like it was something that needed to be discussed.
  • If you are interested in becoming a TEDx speaker, it’s worth your time to give it a try. This is especially so if you have a topic or idea that you think is worth sharing.
  • Recognize that through hard work, you can actually change your brain. If there is an obstacle that is in front of you, don’t undervalue hard work.
  • Self-reflecting is an extremely important process. It can deliver some game-changing insights that can help you achieve your goals.

Ultimately, we’re confident that you will enjoy this discussion. Whether you want to learn how to become a TEDx speaker or simply want to gather some helpful tips on self-improvement, this conversation is for you.

Ryan Conlan is an associate account strategist at Google and most recently completed a TEDx Talk on dyslexia.
