10 Ways to Prepare for a TED Style Talk

Give a TED-style talk that gets a lot of views

  • Arrange and re-arranged your message onto the 9-up format - same size as sticky notes, until you are happy with the flow.
  • Solicit feedback from effective presenters that you trust to give honest, unfiltered feedback on your narrative and slides.
  • Rehearse with a great (honest) communicator -  a coach that is not afraid to speak up.
  • Make sure you articulate each point clearly.  Your audience should understand what’s magnificent about your big idea.
  • Practice with a clock counting up the minutes, to know how much you're over. Only then trim it down.
  • Once you're within the timeframe, practice with a clock counting down. Know roughly where you should be at 6, 12 and 18 minutes.
  • Be noteworthy. Let your coach jot down what you say well and what you don’t. 
  • Don’t be camera shy. Talk to the camera like there are humans on the other side of it. Practice by videotaping yourself.
  • Do one more FULL timed rehearsal right before you walk on stage.
  • Pick two natural places you could stop in your talk, then demarcate those as possible endings. You can then stop at your first ending point if you run over your time.

Key Ideas

A TED Talk is 18 minutes long

TED curator Chris Anderson explains:

The 18-minute length works much like the way Twitter forces people to be disciplined in what they write. By forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18, you get them to really think about what they want to say. What is the key point they want to communicate? It has a clarifying effect. It brings discipline.”

Unleash the master within

Passion leads to mastery and mastery forms the foundation of an extraordinary presentation.
You cannot inspire others unless you are inspired yourself. Persuade and inspire your listeners. Express an enthusiastic, passionate, and meaningful connection to your topic.

Tell stories

Stories connect us. Stories stimulate and engage the human brain. It helps the speaker connect with the audience and make the audience more agreeable with the speaker's point of view.

8 more ideas

You don’t care enough about the audience

Most people think they are the most important player in a presentation. They are wrong. The audience, the listeners, the people watching the presenter are the most important players.

The Words and the Design

The work on the presentation slides should be clear, crisp, concise, with fewer words and more visually striking simple imagery.

Long sentences and tiny words going through the whole slide are not advisable.

Lack of Practice

Invest your time practicing thoughtfully and getting in a zone where you are a natural.

An effortless-looking presentation makes the audience love it, even though you have toiled hard to make it look effortless.
