Session: How to Craft a TedX Talk
That Matters Enough To Get Five Million Views
“What message do you have that matters? Not the message you think people need to hear, but the one that your audiences gobbles up as if they’ve been starving for it? What’s the one discovery you’ve made that leaves audiences feeling empowered and in control of their futures? These were some of the questions I asked myself to craft my second TedX Talk. Once I determined the message that mattered, I used my TED consultant’s advice to craft the story that would reach a young global audience.”
In this session, Marianna will walk us through these steps so you too can start preparing your 5-million-view TedX talk.
What do you see as one of the most significant challenges facing the professional speaking community as we look to the future?
“I believe one challenge is going to be to combine speaking while delivering a creative audience experience. I think more and more, audiences don’t want to just hear what a speaker has to offer, they want to arrive at it through their own discovery. And that means, as Elvis said: “A little less conversation, a little more action please.”
