Why does your company need TED-style presentations?
I was sitting in the front row of a national conference where I'd trained 6 featured speakers who had zero speaking experience, each coming off the stage with rounds of applause and standing ovations when the highly respected, head of a century-old tech company finished his presentation. From behind me, a voice failed to whisper, "That was boring!"
With whiplash speed, the speaker tried to see who had said that, rushed off stage embarrassed and furious.
He later came to me asking for training. He knew even with 20 years of confident presentation experience in the boardroom, the TED-style stage became a bored-room.
Every word impacts.
Ideas are the currency of the 21st century, how are you getting your ideas across?
How much is it worth to you to convey your idea with impact?
You can have innovative ideas, but if you can’t move people to act, ideas become worthless.
