Meet The Team: Lizzie Bentley-Bowers

LIZZIE BENTLEY-BOWERS
Founder, The Causeway


ABOUT LIZZIE:

Lizzie is a BIG fan of TEDx and got ridiculously excited when she heard a TEDx event was coming to Tunbridge Wells in 2015. After enjoying the first TEDxRTW as a member of the audience Lizzie, was keen to get involved. She was a brilliant speaker coach for our June 2016 and 2017 events and is now Chair for our forthcoming 2019 event.

By day, Lizzie is a professional coach and a proud governor of Oakley School. When not trying (and usually failing) to keep up with her two boys, you’ll likely find her reading or baking something wonderful.

Choosing a favourite TEDx RTW talk is too hard, but here are a couple of Lizzie's favourites from around the world.
