You don’t have to be a thought leader to deliver an unforgettable speech that will galvanize and transform your listeners, as well as entertain them.  What you do need is the alchemy behind the magic that is found in every TED Talk.

The nonprofit TED – Technology, Entertainment, Design – started in 1984 as a vehicle devoted to “ideas worth spreading.” It began as a conference bringing together thought leaders and luminaries from around the world, challenging them “to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).” Its popularity exploded and gave rise to numerous TED events throughout the world

In 2007, TED began posting videos of these talks on www.TED.com.  The most inspiring talks quickly went viral.. You can access 1400 videos ranging from jaw-dropping to pervasive, ingenious, funny, beautiful, courageous…

Based on intensive study of the most popular TED Talks by a self-described “public speaking super-nerd,”  How To Deliver a TED Talk is a step-by-step playbook that shows how to select your topic, craft your narrative, master your delivery, and refine your design.  This is the complete guide to delivering stellar speeches and creating presentations that will inspire others.
