How do I record a TED-like Talk?
The most watched talks are usually built around a great story, and free of sales pitches. Ideas are worth sharing. Include a story! They’re really important; they make ideas and important concepts stick.
- Open with a greeting, introduce yourself, highlight your big idea.
- Dive into the short story
- Connect it with your main idea: explain the status quo and why it’s a problem. Explore the ‘promised land’ with as much detail and clarity as possible.
- Close with a simple, practical, next step, a call to take action.
Avoid putting a light source (like a window) behind you.
Ensure that your wall or background is neat and clear of distractions.
Don’t record against a blank wall – it gives the impression that you may be boring.
Record when things are quiet.
Use a timer.
Most important: practice your talk several times before you give it! This will give you the confidence to avoid looking at your notes the whole time.
