How To Deliver a TED Talk: Secrets of the World’s Most Inspiring Presentations

Select Your Topic

  • Your goal is to sow a single seed of inspiration that either awakens your audience’s consciousness or persuades them to take action. You want to tell an amazing story so ask yourself what is the greatest lesson you have ever learned, and what is the greatest joy or misery you have ever experienced? Also consider your life’s mission if you have one. With your central idea in hand, you work backwards to build your narrative. If you have the greatest lesson theme, the story is how and when you learned it. Look for a hero that may have helped.
  • People have four deep routed needs. The first is the need for love and belonging, which comes from social interaction, experiencing nature, or completing a task. Second is your desire and self-interest. A lot of the what’s-in-it-for-me part of life comes from the first list. Third we have personal development. Recipes for setting and achieving goals fit here. Overcoming failure is also a feature of many talks. Finally, make an enemy of the status quo, and build a positive promise for tomorrow. Whatever you pick, focus like a laser on the topic.
