It’s Day Fifteen of my Twenty-One Tools post series! Today, you can download the W4 Form for Successful TED -TEDx Talks by Sam Horn
Did you know there are over 2800 TED Talks posted on the TED Talks website? I did. That’s mostly because I have watched a lot of them. And, I do mean A LOT. It never feels like I’m wasting time mindlessly staring a screen when I am binging on TED Talks. So much to learn, so little time! But, what about if you are the one doing the presenting? Surely presenting a TED Talk is not nearly as easy as watching one. That’s true and that’s where this little tool will definitely be an important one to add to your toolbox. Especially if planning and delivering successful TED Talks is in your future.
Today’s download is from Sam Horn, a TEDx speaker and author of the book Got Your Attention: How to Create Intrigue and Connect with Anyone. It’s an important read for anyone who needs to make a favourable impression and win over an audience during a pitch, a presentation or a simple one on one meeting. Her tools are designed to get you on point and keep you there. The W4 form in this download is one of many tools in her book.
Here is a clip of Sam delivering her own TEDx talk
