SpeakerNet News Intensives

Maximizing the Impact
of Short-Format (TED) Talks

The Program:

TED — or short-format — talks are so popular now, major corporate and association meetings are going to this model. They can fit more speakers into their program, and if one is a dud they haven’t lost a whole hour.

But if you’re used to 45–60 minutes, how do you make a compelling talk in a fraction of that time? You don’t just talk faster! Nor do you try to whittle down your impactful 25-minute story to 15 minutes.

There’s a reason so few professional speakers are invited to be on the TED and TEDx program. You’ll learn why. And you’ll also learn how to approach the organizers so you’ll be more likely to get invited.

There are ways you can ensure your presentation is still powerful, funny, and memorable. You will learn the key ideas from these legacy teleseminars.
