How to Talk Like TED
Wednesday, May 4, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM
Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience’s worldview. Done right, a talk can be more powerful and evocative than any other medium. In this program, Chris Anderson, TED curator and master of the short talk, explains how to achieve the miracle of powerful public speaking.
This conversation marks the publication of Chris Anderson’s TED TALKS: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking in which he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken Robinson, Amy Cuddy, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Salman Khan, Dan Gilbert, Mary Roach, Matt Ridley, and dozens more—everything from how to craft your talk’s content to how you can be most effective on stage. The book is a new manual for truly effective communication in the twenty-first century and a must-read for anyone who is ready to communicate their ideas to create change.
