What’s in it for me? Learn the secrets to presenting like a pro.
If you have a great idea, how do you share it with the world? Every day we are bombarded with information, so for any one idea to really shine, it needs to be pushed hard by the person who owns it. In other words, you have to sell it.
In Talk Like TED, author Carmine Gallo reveals the presentation secrets of some of the world’s most influential public speakers. Having analyzed over 500 popular talks presented at TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conferences, Gallo identifies the three common features that, he argues, distinguish those talks from the rest.
In all of the talks, the content of the presentations was novel; the speakers managed to connect emotionally to their audience; and the content was presented in a way that made it easy to remember.
You’ll learn how to connect emotionally with an audience, make your presentations more memorable and weave stories into your talk. Also, you’ll find out why passion is essential to making your talk persuasive, and why you should make sure your subject stimulates more than one of our five senses.
Finally, you’ll learn a number of bread-and-butter tips on how to structure your presentation to make it stick in your audience’s memories.
