How to Deliver a Great TED Talk: Presentation Secrets of the World’s Best Speakers

How to Deliver a Great TED Talk: Presentation Secrets of the World’s Best Speakers
"How to Deliver a Great TED talk" is a complete public speaking system for delivering highly effective presentations and speeches.

If you’ve watched TED talks before, you’ve no doubt been inspired and electrified by speeches by figures such as Sir Ken Robinson, Jill Bolte Taylor, Simon Sinek and Dan Pink.

What makes these TED talks so inspiring?

What is the secret formula for creating a successful TED talk?

And how can you use this formula to deliver your own powerful TED talk (or any other presentation or speech, for that matter)?

If you follow the guidelines and tools How to Deliver a Great TED Talk (previously published as "How to Deliver the Perfect TED Talk"), I guarantee that your audience will have no choice but to be wrapped up in your speeches and presentations.

I studied more than 200 of the most inspiring TED talks, analyzed each one line by line and discovered the common elements that make them successful.

This book is the result of my intensive research. In it, you’ll discover tools that will help make you twice the speaker you are today in half the time.

This book is also based on the work of bestselling authors Chip and Dan Heath. In their groundbreaking book, Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath revealed six simple principles for creating memorable messages.

In this book, I have taken Chip and Dan’s work and applied it to creating powerfully persuasive presentations. I use their SUCCESS framework and draw on examples from TED talks to show how the success principles can be applied to public speaking.

More specifically, you will learn how to:
Craft a repeatable power phrase
• Utlize the ABC-C speech structure
Use rhetorical devices to spice up your speech
• Create an attention-grabbing opening
Build the body of your presentation/speech
• Craft a compelling closing
Use statistics to grab attention
• Create a wow-moment
Bring your characters to life
• Use analogies, metaphors and similes
Turn your stories into mental movies
• Build your credibility with the speech introduction
Add internal credibility to your presentation
• Build an emotional connection with your audience
Use compelling visuals
• Use PowerPoint the right way
• Arouse your audience's curiosity
Use Sir Ken Robinson and Dan Pink's techniques for adding humor to a speech
• Use rhetorical questions to hook your audience into your presentation
Use the five C's of storytelling to create spell-binding stories
• Deliver dynamic TED talk (or any other presentation or speech)

Whether you are scheduled to deliver a TED talk, a business presentation or a motivational or inspiring speech, this book will teach you the techniques used by some of the world's most powerful public speakers.

Learn the art of public speaking and persuasion by studying the speeches of inspiring speakers such as Anthony Robbins, Sir Ken Robinson, Mike Rowe and Dr. Jill Taylor.

Shorten your learning curve and learn the public speaking secrets most speakers never discover.

  1. Philip D. Mann

    As an accomplished Toastmaster, and instructor and committee member of TEDxYouth@FortWorth, I can say that this book hits all of key points to developing and delivering a dynamic and memorable TED Talk. A TED Talk is not a high school speech, it is not a business presentation, and it is certainly not bland and impersonal. Speaking at a TED event is about building a deep connection with the audience by tying in personal, relatable experiences and stories to a single core message; this book covers how to do that and more, but with nothing wasted on ineffective or irrelevant (for a TED Talk) speech writing. While not a general speech primer, “How to Deliver the Perfect TED Talk . . .” fulfills its purpose, and is a fantastic supplement for any skilled speaker wanting to step-up to TED….

    Why can some speakers grab the attention of an audience and keep them spellbound throughout their entire presentation, but most fall flat on their faces and are quickly forgotten?Akash Karia answers this, and many more questions in his terrific new book, How to Deliver the Perfect TED Talk. Akash has captured the best ideas, tools, and processes used by some of the best speakers and presenters in the world. He has distilled them in to a step-by-step, easy-to-read guide that will help you discover, develop, and deliver presentations which help you stand out from the crowd.Actually, the title is slightly misleading in one sense – these ideas aren’t limited to TED Talks. They can be used for any type of presentation, whether a 5-minute talk at a networking event, a 20-minute presentation at a local Rotary or Chamber meeting, or a one-hour keynote speech.Although there are dozens of ideas you can immediately implement into your speech, three that jump out right away are:1) Creating an A…

    I was impressed with the range and extent of the very practical techniques and strategies that Akash Karia shares in this book. Through his extensive research he is able to provide lots of clear examples of exactly how to use them which makes a real difference if you are unfamiliar with the techniques. Although it is directed at those preparing to give a TED talk it has step by step processes that can be used by anyone who wants to improve their presenting. Whether you are a presentation novice or a seasoned speaker there is something in this book for you.Cath DaleyPresentation Specialist and Public Speaking Coach….

    I was thinking about writing a book on presentation skills but it looks Like Akash has beaten me too it. I’ve read a lot of other people’s stuff on this topic but gotta say, he’s really honed it down to something succinct and readable,and obviously the next step in smart presentation is to work with someone who can coach you in these skills….

    I do many presentations every week. the format of this book was well organized, and easy to read. Many useful tips that can be applied immediatly to any presenter of all leverls….

  7. Nazeesh Admani

    As a university student who has to give presentations almost once a month, this book helped me a great deal. I implemented the techniques suggested by Akash Karia in almost all of my presentations and found they worked really well with my audience. It was an easy read which allowed me to follow it thoroughly. Other books I’ve come across bore me enough to put me to sleep before I begin my presentation. This however, shortens and simplifies everything for you. It genuinely teaches you how to prepare a talk, enjoy doing it and make it successful. A definite recommendation….

  8. Essiejay

    I especially appreciate this book (and the other books by Akash Karia) because they make sense to an ordinary person like me who has to do presentations for their job. The language and steps are all well laid out for someone who does not speak at level of those who do the speech circuit, but for someone who is required to do these presentations at the pleasure of management. They were not part of my original job description so I needed a mentor I could relate to and understand. The information relates to any presenter and can benefit any level of speaker. I am pleased with how much better I am doing at it after following these helpful guidelines….
