These are the official guidelines from TED on how to prepare your talk. Chew them over one at a time and let them sit with you until each one triggers new ideas. These tips are given to all TED Conference and TEDx speakers as they prepare their TEDTalks. They will help speakers craft talks that will have a profound impact on your audience.
Dream big. Strive to create the best talk you have ever given. Reveal something new/never seen before. Do something the audience will remember forever. Share an idea that could change the world.
Show us the real you. Share your passions, your dreams … and also your fears. Be vulnerable. Speak of failure as well as success.
Make the complex plain. Don’t try to dazzle intellectually. Don’t speak in abstractions. Explain! Give examples. Tell stories. Be specific.
Connect with people’s emotions. Make us laugh! Make us cry!
Don’t flaunt your ego. Don’t boast. It’s the surest way to switch everyone off.
No selling from the stage! Unless we have specifically asked you to, do not talk about your company or organization. And don’t even think about pitching your products or services or asking for funding from stage.
Don’t read your talk.
End your talk on time. Doing otherwise is to steal time from the people that follow you. We won’t allow it.
Rehearse your talk in front of a trusted friend … for timing, for clarity, for impact.
TEDxSereneMeadows isn’t a typical conference. The TEDx audience has high expectations of the speakers; the TEDx speaker team works with speakers well in advance of the conference to help shape a presentation that will succeed on the TEDx stage. TEDxSereneMeadows is the place to give the talk of your life.
Speakers will be required to work with our curation team and rehearse 3 months before the date of the talk. We would also require the speaker to be available to our conference, media, press & curation teams 2-3 days prior to the event date for multiple events and rehearsal schedules.
