What is a TED-type talk?

  • TED style talks are simple and concise. .... The aim is to keep the audience on the edge of their seats wanting more, not wishing the speaker would  hurry up and finish.
  • TED style talks take the listener on a journey with a narrative style. A good speaker will have the listeners following along in their footsteps, and allow the audience to feel what the speaker felt whilst on that journey.
  • TED style talks tell a story, the best ones evoke the imagination of the audience and allow them to experience the talk with salient sights, sounds, textures, tastes or even smells (think of how you can bring your talk to life by using sensory anchors).
