In her TEDxNCHLondon talk, Lara Holliday, the founder and CEO of Tide Risers, re-defines the term Emprise to inspire us as individuals to adopt a more effective approach to activism. In this talk, Lara also describes her journey of building Tide Risers, a community of women working together to lift each other up personally and professionally, mirroring the movement of a rising tide. With her personal experiences, Lara explores the theme ‘Activism in the Modern Day’ by giving four guiding principles of Emprise to make the road to justice and equity a more resilient and sustainable one. After a 20+ year career spanning corporate, government, and non-profit leadership roles, Lara Holliday founded Tide Risers in 2016 to create a deliberate community for women leaders working to amplify their impact. Tide Risers now connects hundreds of women across the United States and the United Kingdom who benefit from the personal and professional advancement of the Tide Risers coaching curriculum. Lara will deliver her TedXNCHLondon talk entitled “Find Your Emprise to Uplevel Your Impact”. Lara’s concept of Emprise charts a course for a life that brings fulfillment on personal and professional levels and enables activism that is integral to our everyday actions, enabling long-term, sustainable societal change. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
