How to Deliver a Ted Talk

I have never been shy about public speaking as long as I feel passionate about the topic and have a bit of time to prepare.  I found this description of How to Deliver a Ted Talk to be very helpful and inspiring!

Greg and I presenting at OMSI last summer

1.       Frame Your Story
According to Anderson, conceptualizing and framing is the most vital part of the preparation. Great TED talkers frame their talk as a story as if taking people on a journey. They follow a narrative structure that loosely follows a detective story where the speaker ignites the interest by presenting a vexing problem and describing the search for a solution. There’s an “a-ha” moment that comes around the conclusion. Click Here to read the whole article.
