TED Talks and TEDx Talks are still very popular and a great way to share your knowledge with the world.

Learn how to be more comfortable, confident and in control during presentations or speeches.

Here are 5 Strategies for Crushing Your Next TED or TEDx Talk …

1) Create a unique hook or title.

When you start your TED talk, you want to begin with the end in mind. You want to create something that people would want to watch in the future. A title that is a hook is one that you can use to reel them in. Look at other TED talks and notice which titles are most intriguing. Create titles that have mystery. Create titles that reveal something about you or your audience. Chances are, you are using this opportunity as a platform. You’re using this opportunity to create more business or web traffic. This stage of creating your hook or title is not to be treated lightly. It will allow you to reach more people, long-term.

2) Develop 3 to 5 Main Ideas. That’s it.

Audiences can really only remember 3 to 5 main ideas. If that is the case, we need to develop our talks around it. This also helps us to pair down ideas from the world of everything we know. This actually makes the process easier because we can focus on just a handful of court ideas that support our title.

3) Add Stories and Examples for Each Idea

Stories are the currency of life. This is how we communicate with each other. This is how we connect with each other. This is how we make sense of the world and how we pass on important information. Most people leave stories out of their speeches and this is a mistake. Think about some of the best stories and examples you can include. These can be about you or they can be about others. Speeches work best when you reveal something about yourself. Try your best not to hold back.  But, as my friend, leadership expert and author Sylvia Lafair says “Opening your heart is not spilling your guts.”  Share but don’t over-share.

4) Connect With Your Authenticity

One of the things that makes TED talks stand out is when people share their authentic self. How can you best do this? This means revealing your fears, your insecurities, and even your secrets. Reveal who you really are. Act out your stories. Use dialogue. Paint a very vivid picture and allow yourself to show real emotion.

5) Practice, Practice and Practice Again

You’ve heard that practice makes perfect… and whoever told you that is right. If you wanted to become a great athlete or even an athlete that is respectable, you would practice. The best way to practice is with a video recording device. Take your phone or your WebCam and hit record. What you will notice is what works well as what needs to be improved. This is very important data. Make sure to watch closely and adjust both.


Last thoughts…

When it comes down to it, don’t keep your gifts inside of you.  Share them with the world. This is an opportunity to help other people and make the world a better place. Some of the best TED talks embody those ideas. Create something that can live on for years to come and something your family members and yourself can be proud of.
