  • I'm so sorry guys. I have to -- find another --

  • I was supposed to give this talk

  • on how to give the perfect TED Talk.

  • And then they put me last.

  • So everyone's already gone.

  • Andve no other ideas worth spreading --

  • (Laughter)

  • So, luckily Gant provided us with some books.

  • Let's see, "The Outside Leaf". No.

  • "The Century of Columbus". No.

  • Okey, you know what? Screw it!

  • I'm sure many of you, guys, will give TED Talks again in the future.

  • And you know, for the rest of you it turns out

  • you don't really have to have done anything to give a TED Talk.

  • 'Cause they asked me. (Laughter)

  • So you never really know.

  • So I'm just gonna give some advice

  • on how to give the perfect TED Talk.

  • For those of you that went today,

  • you guys were OK.

  • (Laughter)

  • But, you guys -- there's things that you have to learn, so --

  • Alright, I've to get the evil clicker here.

  • (Laughter)

  • The first thing that you wanna do

  • is connect with your audience, right?

  • So there are a number of ways to do that.

  • One is ask a question

  • that will engage the audience,

  • a sort of mind game, so I could --

  • Oh, my TED Talk, my sample TED Talk,

  • is about TED Talks, cause I like to be better. So --

  • (Laughter)

  • So my talk is about TED Talks and I wanna engage you.

  • So I might say something like,

  • I want you all to imagine

  • that you are sitting in a TED Talk.

  • (Laughter)

  • You feel that connection?

  • (Laughter)

  • Or you could give a personal anecdote.

  • That's another great way of connecting.

  • So I could say something like,

  • my grandfather's name was TED.

  • (Laughter)

  • Now we are connected.

  • (Applause)

  • Now you have to move into your actual talk.

  • You might think you need a transition here. You don't!

  • Distract your audience with a modern minimalist slide.

  • (Laughter)

  • And then ask a question that you're probably not gonna answer.

  • What is TED?

  • (Laughter)

  • You'll find when you give the talks that pauses

  • are often more powerful than the words themselves.

  • (Laughter)

  • Okay, great! (Laughter)

  • Now the next thing that you need to think about when giving your TED Talks

  • are the graphics that you wanna use.

  • This are very, very important.

  • There are a few different types of graphics

  • that you can use.

  • Abstract Computer Generated Images. (Laughter)

  • These are wonderful.

  • These will make the audience think that you are brilliant.

  • (Laughter)

  • Even though you may have looked up "awesome brain image" on Google images.

  • (Laughter)

  • The audience will actually believe that you had something to do with this.

  • While the image is up there you could talk about

  • anything from the sandwich you had for lunch to

  • your secret love of country music,

  • and the audience will believe that whatever you're saying is brilliant

  • because of the veins on the screen. (Laughter)

  • Another thing that you can do is use

  • a moderately funny cartoon that slightly relates to your topic.

  • This is to entertain the audience if you are not funny --

  • I should probably just move on.

  • This is the most important part of your TED Talk.

  • Impressive charts. (Laughter)

  • Now --

  • (Laughter)

  • (Applause)

  • Now I wanna make sure you guys know.

  • It doesn't matter what the chart says.

  • As long it's 3D and in many different colors, it works! OK?

  • Now, as you see this is a chart about

  • reasons people watch TED Talks.

  • While the chart's up there I'm just gonna throw out some buzz words

  • that you should probably use while the charts are up there.

  • Lab, research assistant, data.

  • (Laughter)

  • All great buzz words.

  • Better than a chart is ... another chart!

  • (Laughter)

  • Now it's good to use -- if you use a --

  • (Laughter)

  • If you use a pie graph it's good to use another

  • different type of graph.

  • As you can see this is a bar graph.

  • Again 3D, colorful, all good things.

  • Now, at this point in a TED Talk

  • you're probably gonna get tired of listening to the person,

  • unless you are beautiful.

  • So it's probably good to use a video.

  • So here we have a video of what a TED Talk might look like in the year 2050.

  • Consciousness. What is it?

  • We don't know.

  • I'm really looking forward to it.

  • The entire conference will be an hour long. It'll be great.

  • Now we've reached the end of the TED Talk.

  • And it doesn't matter if you've imparted any wisdom at all

  • on the audience

  • because you'll end with an abstract statement

  • and come down to the front of the stage and say,

  • "TED is... You"

  • (Laughter)

  • Thank you.

  • (Laughter) (Applause)

I'm so sorry guys. I have to -- find another --
