Talk like TED

Tuesday 1 October 2019 (7 – 9.30 pm)


We are all familiar with TED talks: Inspiring, succinct, passionate presentations of a good idea. Maybe you have thought about someday giving a talk like that. 

In this workshop you will work on your "idea worth spreading". How do you make your idea come to life? How do you transform your idea into a talk? What are the elements that characterise a TED-like talk and how do you apply these? An experienced TEDx speaking coach will show you all the tips and tricks. We will use some examples to work on a TEDx-worthy result.
