"How To Deliver A TED Talk" is a complete guide for creating presentations that inspire others through your story. Based on intensive study of the most popular TEDTalks, this step-by-step playbook shows you how to select your topic, craft your narrative, master your delivery, and refine your design.
Готовим спикеров к выступлению на Sport Talks (https://www.facebook.com/events/56892...). Формат выступлений похож на TED, потому пересматриваем и вдохновляемся самыми интересными лекциями, а параллельно анализируем. Книга How to deliver a TED talk - отличный помощник. Автор проанализировал самые просматриваемые лекции и попытался найти общие моменты. Ну и кроме того, когда бы я еще узнал, что, оказывается, фото на весь экран без текста называется «метод Година», слово/фраза крупным кеглем на весь или большую часть экрана на однотонном фоне - «метод Такахаши», а их комбинирование - «метод Лессига».
Короткое резюме: - Представление модератором нельзя отпускать на самотек. Важно обсуждать - что и как будет сказано в анонсе. - Тема - Лучше всего работает вопрос – какой главный урок мне преподала моя стихия/страсть? (Из десяти самых просматриваемых TED talks семь посвящены тому, чтобы вдохновить людей на изменения. Остальные три – способствуют межличностным или общественным изменениям). - Лучшее начало - личная история, шокирующее заявление, сильный вопрос - В лекции должен быть сюжет. Возможные сценарии: модель «ситуация в прошлом – сложность/барьер – решение и выход из ситуации» или модель «ситуация сейчас – желаемая ситуация – решение – результат». Важно чередование статистики, данных, цифр с емоциональными историями - Завершение. Дать понять, что финал близок через более короткие фразы. Заканчивайте пожеланием, вопросом, призывом к действию. - Язык - представляем себе разговор на кухне с другом, используем простые, лаконичные фразы («языком шестиклассника»), избегаем жаргона, терминологии. - Юмор: шутим над собой и избегаем старых шуток и бородатых анекдотов. - Презентация: минимум слайдов, используем их как тр��мплин и место приземления, остальную часть лекции – «парим», привлекая максимум внимания аудитории
TED is, as they explain it, "a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading." Originally created to explore ideas in Technology, Entertainment, and Design (hence the TED), the organization hosts two main conferences each year that bring together a large number of idea-makers and wonderful speakers. This text explains the TED format in terms that any speaker can use to improve their presentations. The text is an easy, quick read with tons of public speaking tips, tricks, and hints. The basics are covered in separate chapters and within the chapters are sub-headings for different components. One of the things I really appreciated about the text was its easy to use format: if you wanted to learn about transitions, you could simply turn to the chapter on transitions and get very useful information. If you want information on creating a stunning conclusion, well then, turn to the chapter on conclusions. The book also includes relatable examples with sufficient context and text to make the example understandable. Of course the book always sends the reader back to TED talks, but then they are some of the best examples of excellent speaking around.
This is a book I would recommend to my first-year Speech students as a basic text on excellent presentations.
After randomly spotting this on Amazon, I purchased this for my Kindle, hoping to learn some techniques useful in launching the leadership and networking sections of our new Becoming a Pharmacist course.
At just over 100 pages and using 14 short chapters, the book is a quick read. I made liberal use of the highlighting function in Kindle. The book was a good balance of new information specific to TED Talks and reminders on presenting in general. The author says that he's studied the top TED Talks and his advice is based on those.
The chapter on content was especially helpful in setting the stage, reminding us to "sow a single seed of inspiration" and describing the four human needs that our presentations can address.
I also liked the section on constructing catchphrases and their defining characteristics e.g. Simon Sinek's "People don't by what you do, they buy why you do it". This was probably one of the most powerful messages in the book. The power of good introductions was also a strong section. So many introductions are ineffective bio reads. I'll definitely be thinking about catchphrases and introductions more!
The book's reference to existing TED Talks helped to drive its messages home. Plan some time to view some of the mentioned Talks to see the advice in action.
Simple book, with simple methods and techniques to use. Good to remind yourself how to tailor a pitch for a particular audience. Not an easy read if you have already gone through other communication books, as it only presents straightforward concepts.

Thanks Jeremey Donovan!! After reading your book, my high school Humanities students gave a TEDx Talk in our Texas Hill Country community on "What Does It Means to be Human?" During our planning, I referred many times to your cogent advice on delivery, design, and prepping for the stage. Each student's presentation was creatively different and spoke volumes about their research, passions, and individual life journeys. For many it was their first opportunity to speak on a stage; for others, it was an opportunity to hone their skills. Thank you for sharing your knowledge as well as inspiring others to share their ideas. I highly recommend your work to those who are preparing to speak before any group, whether large or small.
Es un excelente libro, es preciso y conciso, me gustó mucho la forma de explicar los "pasos a seguir" para dar una buena charla pero siempre dejando libertad al lector para manejar la situación con autonomía y creatividad.
Es un libro corto y fácil de leer, personalmente se lo recomiendo a cualquier persona que intente mejorar sus habilidades hablando en público independientemente de si quieren o no dar una charla Ted.
Además de servir como bases para una presentación frente a un grupo numeroso, también es fácil aterrizar los consejos y lecciones a una presentación de trabajo en línea o una conferencia virtual. En el día a día, se agradece una presentación estructurada y fluida.
Muy digerible y comprensible, el narrador desglosa perfectamente cada punto y lo mejor: la síntesis de lo importante al final de cada capítulo.
Nice little book with lots of tips on how to deliver an engaging and effective talk. Nothing groundbreaking here, but the book is certainly a useful tool for anyone who speaks in public. My three stars is probably due to the fact that books with lists and butler points don’t lend themselves as well to an audio book.
This book gives awesome tips and ideas on how to deliver a TED talk. There are several people who are speakers on some way or the other, whereas not that everyone are successful. The primary reason is anyone who has a worthy idea spreading should not only stop there, but needs to know how these worthy ideas can be delivered to the audience in an inspiring way. By this, it doesn't mean how the speaker inspires the audience whereas how the content what he tries to deliver reaches and inspires them. Anything to start with, should have a passion. As a speaker, we who try to inspire others should have a passion towards what we think to deliver and should believe in it. Let your idea bring even a small change but if it is worthy and we have a passion towards it, then it can inspire others too. Even though TED is for people from technology, entertainment and design, it is not restricted to this circle alone. Rather it is categorized under what sort of persona you are, either an educator, or an entertainer or the change agent. Almost every personas gets covered under these 3 categories. One tip that can really help you to be a good TED talker is, when you have an idea worth spreading, don't just keep insisting it and stop there, rather make it an actionable outcome response where-in the listeners can take some action that they can really feel the change either in their personal level or in social level. As a TED speaker we need to first have a better understanding on what idea we are about to deliver to others and this is the key of success. Love, desire and self interest and betterment towards self development are the essential things that makes you connect with your audience. There are further lots and lots of tips covered in this book that helps us to fine tune not only as a TED speaker, but in general this may help us in any place wherever we wish to share our ideas and keep it crystal clear and short and sweet and can ensure people to listen to what we speak. Language and humor adds up to the delivery part. The last but not the least, when we keep ourselves satisfied within the comfort environment and tap ourselves rating whatever we delivered is the best, we are restricted to keep it to the same level. Rather if we put our ideas in a feedback rich environment, we will get more ideas to improve through these feedbacks and for sure we can move ahead delivering better than the best ones. First and last we need to understand, that whatever we are trying to deliver is not to market ourselves nor our products, rather it is worthy ideas that we would like to share with. When our ideas are worthy sharing and inspiring, we can see the change in the world as what we expect. I recommend this book to everyone.
I am fascinated with TED. While it is not a specific goal to actually deliver a speech there, I certainly would not mind doing so. :) I've stumbled across this title several times in the last month or two. Today I wanted to read, but nothing to weighty. This fit the bill.
The summary is that this is a 112-page (I read the Kindle version) script for Toastmasters!
Early on I had good vibes as some of the things Donovan described are exactly like what we learn in Toastmasters. Then he began breaking out the references. Frankly, he copped some of Craig Valentine's material (of vice versa).
One is not going to go from the couch to TED from having read this book. But those who do present at TED use the material presented here. I expected Donovan to recommend joining Toastmasters for practice; he didn't, but he did lead the needy to the organization.
The Kindle version had some odd formatting, but nothing that impeded comprehension. "Once" was spelled "One", and the lack of hyphens was bothersome.
A solid easy read that has good information, although nothing new to a seasoned Toastmaster, I suspect.
I didn't discover TED Talks until recently, but I really enjoy them. They're the best of the classes, motivational speeches and ideas that I've seen - they take me back to a motivational speech on leadership I enjoyed in high school and an education conference I attended that had a fantastic science presention, so really they're just a lot of fun.
Even though I'll never have a reason to deliver a talk myself, I was looking for something to read and this book grabbed my attention.
I actually enjoyed it quite a bit, there is a lot of good stuff in here. It really is a "how-to" guide for delivering a TED talk, but you'll also pick up pointers for general speeches, communication and writing. You're not going to become an expert ready to give a talk overnight with this book, but if you're already going to be giving one, I would personally make sure to read this first.
I found the section on body language and what to do with your hands to be interesting, as well as the sections on good introductions (no quotes!).
Thanks to NetGalley for providing a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
As far as titles go, this one caught my attention immediately: How to Deliver a TED Talk: Secrets of The World’s Most Inspiring Presentations. The fact is, I have on multiple occasions been inspired by watching TED talks online. I have been impressed at the way the presenters are able to eloquently bring the audience into their story and care deeply about whatever the topic is that they are covering. I decided to read this book not because I hold any desire to ever present a TED talk, but because I do have to speak in front of groups on a regular basis and was interested in picking up some pointers from the experts. I received quite a bit more by the end of the book. As author Jeremy Donovan points out, one doesn’t become a better public speaker solely by reading books about it and studying others doing it, one has to practice doing it. However – there are common threads in the best delivered TED talks that can be incorporated into anyone’s presentations. Donovan does an excellent job of breaking these concepts down and giving readers a lot to consider when designing their next presentation.
Very short, but rather practical guidance into the world of powerful presentations. The book is useful not only for those who deliver the presentations, but as well for those who organize professional events and conferences, where you need to introduce speakers from the stage. Being a member of Toastmasters I was familiar with many tips and i should say that it won't help you to improve your presentational skills, but i'm sure that the book will be helpful in writing the content of presentations, building its structure and in choosing intriguing titles. And all these recommendations will be nothing without constant practice!
Being the analytical engineer that I was trained to be in college, this book resonates perfectly me as I recognize that speaking is as much more of an art than it is just spitting out facts and logic. However, as the author suggests, an outline is key and universal to every great TED Talk. Using the body metaphor to describe a speech, the "spine" is the idea worth spreading, the "ribs" are the premises, and the "flesh" are the proofs. The structured layering of both premises and proofs in speaking with the artistic vision of the speaker seems to be the recipe for all great TED Talks.
The number one fear in the world is not of the supernatural, involve clowns in sewers or cameos from creepy dolls. For some, this fear, is one worse than death - I'm talking of course, about Public Speaking... Most of us can remember our first ever speech; mine was in Year 7 on 'Space' and even to this day I can remember the sleepless night before and feel chills as I stepped up to speak. Needless to say, we all survived, and were better for it. Donovan's book is a practical guide and lays out what TED's top engaging speakers employ; the most important being to enjoy the experience!
I don't think the author has presented at TED, but the book has lots of examples from TED talks. The information is good although basic. If you have a big speech coming up and need a short book to point you in the right direction this book would be prefect. If you are an experienced speaker looking for advice from the masters, you will not find much in this book you do not already know.
Các bài thuyết trình trên Ted thực sự rất hay và mang những ý tưởng đáng lan tỏa. Tác giả phân tích rất kĩ các điều tạo nên 1 bài thuyết trình hay trên Ted. Khổ nỗi tôi lật qua lật lại mãi mới đọc hết hơn 100 điều để làm nên bài thuyết trình hứng khởi và chỉ nhớ vài điều. Sách thích hợp cho ai hay thuyết trình.
This book didn't have a lot to say about presenting that wasn't already intuitive or easy to glean if you're already a Ted talk fan. It is also not endorsed by Ted; I think it would have greatly benefitted from some insider knowledge. It was an easy read and not bad ideas, just kind of boring.
This was a great no-nonsense book that drives a point home I appreciate: Don’t give a talk to boost your career or biz, be living your life with such purpose and passion that you’re invited to speak, or if not, you’d be too busy and happy to notice.
Other takeaways: - people most likely to speak: business guru, explorer, social entrepreneur, personal guru, activist, authority - topics that connect: need for belonging, self interest, self-actualization, hope for future - only talk about things you care about- find a new audience if you need to buy maintain your message - show up to give vs get - give human examples and stories to illustrate points - the journey is the reward - focus on your defining moment and if it’s dark be sure to go back to the light- a hero’s journey - keep catchphrase 3-12 words - book rec: 8 to be great: the eight traits successful people have in common by Richard St. John - provide clear markers of transition like pauses to let points sink in - offer the premise and proof of your statements and assertions - adopt the tone of a passionate 1:1 conversationalist - scale nonverbal hand gestures to fill the room (!) - look people in one eye at a time, left pupil for emotional plea and right for logical (revered sides of the brain) - slides: avoid video and image rich with no or simple text - if you must show videos show short ones of decreasing duration to give the impression of momentum - craft intro that shows you’re a credible guide not a superhuman, intro should be focused on your why, match tone of intro w tone of speech - 4 attributes of viral videos: surprise, cute, creative, emotional
