About my TED Talk

About my TED Talk

Being able to inspire people was so exciting to me.

I had already started seeing the impact that was possible through my podcast and I had just started speaking from the stage which was a whole different experience.

I felt like doing a TED Talk could have an enormous impact and reach people who may not listen to podcasts.

It wasn’t long after I really started to give this consideration that TEDx UCSD reached out to me and asked me to apply to speak.

Their theme was “rebooting your life” and this was the perfect forum to tell my car accident story as well as discuss the science of altruism.

I was so excited!

Then, COVID happened and I got an email of course that the TED event was being shut down.

I was so bummed but things always happen for a reason.

Some months later, I was told that we were going to be the first virtual TED event although all the speakers had only two weeks to write and film their talks!

Below is my talk and I’m honored to share it with you

I have to admit it is pretty wild seeing twenty years of your life condensed into 11 minutes and those were a pretty crazy two weeks but I’m happy with how it turned out and hope that you enjoy it and gain something valuable as well:

Clients and Rave Reviews

"I recently had the privilege of hearing Dr. Richard Shuster speak at an event.

What I really appreciated was his ability to connect with the audience and explain what could be so complex is such simple ways that made sense! Knowing that the content was researched and evidence-based was a game-changer for me.

Dr. Shuster’s energy was bounding and his humor binding! He comes alive in front of his audiences delivering impactful messages, backed with the science in the most meaningful of ways.

Thank you, Dr. Shuster for sharing your experience and stories with us.

We left feeling informed and entertained!”

– Sajel Bellon Ed.D., RP., CTSS

“Dr. Shuster has researched what it means to experience and overcome fear.

In fact, you can actually track your fear.

Looking at instances that cause fear, the feelings and thoughts you experience, and the actions you take, will help you better understand your fear.

With this in mind, Dr. Shuster wants us to know that we can rewire our approach.

And it all starts with the mindset, how we speak to ourselves and the language we surround ourselves with.

Our brain is wired to connect to things that are familiar and when we focus on something our brain will get us there.

Start by unfollowing the negativity (yes, even negative people on your social media) so you can start focusing on the positive messages.”

– Amanda Nachman, Motivational Speaker and CEO of College Magazine

“Dr. Shuster is awesome to work with from an event producer’s point of view.

He’s flexible,

he’s prepared,

he’s on point,

and he connects with the crowd.

On a personal level I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Shuster across the country on numerous occasions including my own personal event in Chicago.

He’s an amazing presenter and his content is always evolving and he’s always on point.”

– Carey Smolensky, President/CEO of CSP Worldwide Event Management
