I was walking on my treadmill today watching some of the speakers on Ted Talks. The speakers were all not only interesting in what they said, but were all accomplished speakers. They all were standing in front of a large audience without a lectern or notes and using Power Point in an interesting and useful way.
It occurred to me that we could all use these speakers as examples of “How to Give a Speech.”
I watched three speakers this morning and they all did a great job. There may be some Ted speakers who are less accomplished, but the ones I’ve seen have been good.
Give www.Ted.com a try and see what you can learn.
