  • How to prepare your TEDx talk in the TED style.

  • In this video, we are going to help you organize your idea,

  • build and sequence your TEDx talk

  • and then encourage you to rehearse and practice it

  • to fit in the TED format.

  • So, let's get started.

  • You likely have a gallery of work you want to bring to TEDx

  • but they only have room for one of your big dreaming masterpieces.

  • So, here are some questions to help you collect

  • and organize these bountiful thoughts.

  • What is your core idea and point of view?

  • Giving context why your audience should care.

  • What gives you license to talk about it?

  • Making a personal connection, displaying your experience

  • and the real you, not your ego.

  • What three main points can you distill to support

  • and reveal insight against your idea? --proof for the left side of the brain --

  • And what stories can you tell to resonate

  • your idea and evoke emotion? -- for the right side of the brain --

  • And lastly, what is your call to action to inspire your audience?

  • Now, you have ingredients for a masterpiece,

  • so, let's sequence it into a TEDx talk.

  • You first will need a strong opening hook to grab their attention.

  • (Video) Dan Pink: I need to make a confession at the outset here.

  • A little over 20 years ago, I did something that I regret,

  • something that I'm not particularly proud of.

  • Something that in many ways, I wish no one would ever know.

  • But, that here, I feel kind of obliged to reveal.

  • In the late 1980s, in a moment of youthful indiscretion, I went to law school.

  • You want to order your points to flow naturally for you and the audience.

  • (Video) Bryan Stevenson: It's interesting, this question of the death penalty.

  • In many ways, we've been taught to think that the real question is:

  • do people deserve to die for the crimes they've committed?

  • And that's a very sensible question.

  • But there's another way of thinking about where we are in our identity.

  • The other way of thinking about it is not

  • do people deserve to die for the crimes they commit?,

  • but do we deserve to kill?

  • Then you want to trash those points that really don't matter.

  • Lastly, craft a great closing story with a call to action.

  • (Video) Susan Cain: Just occasionally, I hope you'll open up your suitcases

  • for other people to see because the world needs you

  • and it needs the things you carry.

  • So I wish you the best of all possible journeys

  • and the courage to speak softly.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Then add your images, which will help you tighten transitions

  • and augment stories to get you to 18 minutes or less.

  • In the third phase of preparing your talk, you must plan on your calendar

  • to rehearse and practice for several weeks

  • in front of real audiencies and several different ones if possible.

  • Then, make sure to visit and rehearse at the event venue

  • practicing with your sides and the clicker,

  • and hopefully, a confidence monitor, the video screen in front of you.

  • And then lastly, while we've incorporated it in this video,

  • make sure to live and breathe all of the TED commandments.

  • Brought to you by the team at TEDx Columbus.
