Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking

“Ants shape each other’s behavior by exchanging chemicals. We do it by standing in front of each other, peering into each other’s eyes, waving our hands and emitting strange sounds from our mouths. Human-to-human”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking

“First there is the 10-second war: can you do something in your first moments on stage to ensure people’s eager attention while you set up your talk topic? Second is the 1-minute war: can you then use that first minute to ensure that they’re committed to coming on the full talk journey with you?”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
