Dallas, TX — Dec 02, 2013 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) — That a Girl & Friends Speakers Agency is pleased to announce that three of the agency’s speakers — Tammy Kling, Thelma Wells, and Bethany Williams — have been selected to speak at the inaugural TEDx TurtleCreekWomen event in Dallas on December 6, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Winspear Opera House.

“TEDx is an international event featuring some of the most powerful minds in the world on subjects that challenge our thinking and touch our hearts,” said speaker Thelma Wells. “To be a part of this worldwide arena is humbling and empowering.  We are very excited that three professionals represented by That a Girl & Friends Speakers Agency were selected to present.”

Thelma Wells will be among 15 other speakers at the event who will tie their message to the TEDWomen’s theme of “Invented Here”.  The TEDx conference is providing general guidelines for the independently-organized group of TurtleCreekWomen to hold a speaking event on different topics concerning women around the Turtle Creek area in Dallas and beyond. That a Girl & Friends Speakers Agency has the three speakers of Tammy Kling, Thelma Wells, and Bethany Williams at this event. TEDx is a program that pushes ideas worth spreading with the TurtleCreekWomen event pushing ideas about women.

“I also am always eager to participate in events that aim to propel women forward in their personal lives, and their salaries and their careers,” explained That a Girl Speaker Bethany Williams. “I’ll be speaking on what holds us back at work-with a very interesting twist that I’m not revealing before the talk.”

Thelma Wells gave more insight into what her speech was about, even revealing an acronym that was to be later explained at the event. “I will be speaking about the four letters E. Y. E. S. and relating them to the necessity of returning to the safe place of creating watching communities all over the world.”

Tammy Kling has a more personal message to deliver at this event. “I’m speaking about how words change lives,” said Kling. “The words you speak – can save someone’s life. Maybe even your own.”

This TEDx event by the TurtleCreekWomen will highlight how each of us, especially women, have the ability to be successful in our personal, business, and community worlds. As a new TEDx licensee TurtleCreekWomen is limited to 100 tickets at 100 dollars each to the live inaugural event on Dec. 6, 2013.
