“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
“We discovered this when we invited the Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman to TED. Known as the father of behavioral economics, he’s an extraordinary thinker with a toolkit of ideas that can change any worldview. We had originally asked him to speak in the traditional TED way. No lectern. Just stand on the stage, with some note cards if need be, and give the talk. But in rehearsal, it was clear that he was uncomfortable. He hadn’t been able to fully memorize the talk and so kept pausing and glancing down awkwardly to catch himself up. Finally I said to him, “Danny, you’ve given thousands of talks in your time. How are you most comfortable speaking?” He said he liked to put his computer on a lectern so that he could refer to his notes more readily. We tried that, and he relaxed immediately. But he was also looking down at the screen a little too much. The deal we struck was to give him the lectern in return for looking out at the audience as much as he could. And that’s exactly what he did. His excellent talk did not come across as a recited or read speech at all. It felt connected. And he said everything he wanted to say, with no awkwardness.”

“Presentation literacy isn’t an optional extra for the few. It’s a core skill for the twenty-first century.”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
“Your number-one mission as a speaker is to take something that matters deeply to you and to rebuild it inside the minds of your listeners. We’ll call that something an idea.”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
“V dnešní propojené době bychom toto vznešené umění měli vzkřísit a udělat z něj čtvrtou základní dovednost: čtení, psaní, počítání … a rétorika.”

“Není náhoda, že v kostele můžeme slyšet každý týden kázání, které obsahuje tytéž věci stále dokola, jen pokaždé trochu jinak. Je-li důležitá myšlenka zabalena v čerstvém příběhu a dobře podána, může z ní být skvělá řeč.”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
“Když se amerického prezidenta Woodrowa Wilsona jednou zeptali, jak dlouho mu trvá příprava projevu, odpověděl: To záleží na jeho délce. Jedná-li se o desetiminutovou řeč, trvá mi to celé dva týdny. Pokud má projev trvat půl hodiny, zabere mi příprava týden. A pokud mohu mluvit tak dlouho, jak chci, nepotřebuji vůbec žádnou přípravu. Jsem vždy připraven.”

“Je pozoruhodné, že nejméně jedna třetina těch nejsledovanějších přednášek, které kdy na TEDu zazněly, slajdy vůbec nevyužívají.”

“At a conference, people don’t come to a talk to be sold to. As soon as they understand that might be your agenda, they will flee to the safety of their email inbox. It’s”
Chris J. Anderson, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
“We live in an era where the best way to make a dent on the world may no longer be to write a letter to the editor or publish a book. It may be simply to stand up and say something . . . because both the words and the passion with which they are delivered can now spread across the world at warp speed.”
Chris Anderson, TED TALKS: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
“rehearsing the transitions is especially important. The audience needs to hear in your voice when you’re doubling down on an idea, versus when you’re changing subjects.”
