I’m reading a book every 2-3 weeks and I thought of sharing that with any that might be interested. I’ve started reading Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds a couple of days ago and without being so much of a TED material myself, I have to say that I understood what makes a TED talk stand out, at least in theory:

  1. Unleash the Master Within
  2. Master the Art of Storytelling
  3. Have a Conversation
  4. Teach Me Something New
  5. Deliver Jaw-Dropping Moments
  6. Lighten Up
  7. Stick to the 18-Minute Rule
  8. Paint a Mental Picture with Multisensory Experiences
  9. Stay in Your Lane

That’s it, 9 rules to follow and I will become TED material :) Read it and you’ll become one too.
