Teresa Moon

When Teresa Moon was a university student, public speaking made her physically ill. Now she is an internationally recognized seminar speaker, education consultant, author, and leadership coach. Teresa is founding President and CEO of the Institute for Cultural Communicators, where ordinary students become extraordinary leaders. Each year, she travels globally, leading conferences to train students, teachers, and parents to become “cultural communicators” who can impact culture through relevant communication and authentic leadership. Her Tennessee home doubles as the Institute’s Training Center, accommodating dozens of high school and college students at a time in leadership residencies. Teresa’s students have been invited to speak on tens of thousands of platforms to influence audiences for Christ – including the White House, Congress, the G8 Summit, the United Nations and churches, schools and heads of state in more than twenty nations.
