TED:Talks. How to walk like a ‘Ted Talker’

Talk Like Ted

I watched countless Ted Talks throughout my University career which were extremely beneficial, from marketing to psychology to one of the last Ted’s I remember watching was Kevin Bacon’s six degrees of separation. The six degrees of separation talk was offered in a digital marketing lecture to help us better understand how we are all connected, especially digitally.

My interest in Ted Talks grew and they become a several-a-week occurrence for me to view.

Talk Like Ted

I purchased a book recently to help massage my desire of Ted Talks farther. Talk Like Ted by Carmine Gello offers a 9 chapter insight into how one may improve their public speaking technique. The book tells individuals how to be:

  • Emotional
  • A storyteller
  • A conversationist
  • A teacher
  • A sensitive comedian
  • How to abide by the 18-minute rule
  • To be a Vincent Van Gogh with words
  • Stay within your knowledgable boundaries

The book also offers insight into how storytelling can create an emotional rapport between you and your listeners.

I found this book really interesting and also I feel this book will help me greatly post-university within my professional career.

If you do not have the time to read the full book I would suggest reading a 20-minute summary from the good people at Joosr. Talk like Ted can also be downloaded as part of a free trial here.

As much as I enjoyed the book I also really enjoy videos explaining six degrees of separation, watch the video below, I found it really interesting.
