Speaking at TEDx Charlotte this week. Watch online, if you can’t attend!

Who doesn’t love a TED Talk? It’s been called “the ultimate brain spa.”

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Today, TED talks have been viewed over a billion times online.

Delivering a TEDx talk with Neale Bayly

TEDx Charlotte is organized by a local team of volunteers. I’m over the moon to be presenting a TEDx talk with my buddy Neale Bayly this Friday, February 21 in Charlotte. This TEDx event’s theme is Unexpected: Converging Contradictions.

Neale and I will talk about “Chance Encounters that Changed Our Lives.”

About Neale Bayly

Neale is a Philanthropic Adventure Motorcyclist. If you are at all connected to motorcycling, you’ve seen Neale’s work with America’s top motorcycle magazines and web sites. Assignments send him all over the world to ride, test and report back on the best that a two-wheeled lifestyle offers. Neale and I teamed up to cover the  2012 and 2013 GS Trophy trials at the BMW Performance Center in Greenville, SC. Neale shoots the pictures, I write the stories.

His 2013 reality series “Neale Bayly Rides” made its debut on Speed Channel (now Fox Sports). The TV series showed Neale’s philanthropic side to the world. It documented a charity ride that he captained through the wilds of Peru, which culminated at a remote mountain orphanage which his charity, Wellspring International Outreach, supports. Like me, Neale lives in Charlotte, NC. He is a devoted father to his two sons, Luke and Patrick.

Here’s a video to acquaint you with this big-hearted friend and now co-presenter at TEDx Charlotte.

Thoughts on Self-Care and Re-launching Your Life

If you are in a helping profession, (including a full-time parent) here's a Professional Quality of Life Scale (self-assessment) that will help you gauge your "Compassion Satisfaction," your "Burnout" and your "Secondary Traumatic Stress." The occupational therapists found it to be a useful tool.


  1. How cool is that…. and a great opportunity for both Neale and Tamela to let others know about their contributions…

  2. Ah, Thank you, Bill. I have YOU to thank for introducing me to Neale in the first place. The motorcycling world wouldn’t be the same without your lifetime of contributions.
