Book Presentation: How To Deliver A Great Ted Talk by Akash Karia

Book Abstract


In the business world, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Talks have gained legendary status. They are delivered at two annual conferences where the world’s most engaging thinkers and doers are challenged to expound on “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Each TED Talk lasts for 18 minutes and plays to a global audience. Every year, the TED Prize ($1 million in 2012) is given to the best TED Talk. More than 1,500 TED Talks are now available online.

So, if you’ve got 18 minutes to change the world for the better, how do you do it? After analyzing hundreds of memorable TED Talks in fine detail, it has been seen the most inspiring presentations follow the same basic formula:

While you may or may not get the chance to give a TED Talk during your career, following this formula for the presentations you do give makes sense. Doing so will make your message sticky, effective and memorable – not bad results to enjoy whatever the setting.

“The perfect TED Talk is simple, concrete, credible, contains an element of unexpectedness, arouses audience emotions and uses stories to drive home the message. If you follow the guidelines and tools, I guarantee that your audience will have no choice but to be wrapped up in your speeches and presentations. You will have everything you need to make your very next presentation a roaring SUCCESS!”

Summary of How To Deliver A Great Ted Talk (Akash Karia)

S: Simple

Boil your presentation down to one core message which encapsulates the idea you’re trying to put across or what you want people to remember. Then keep repeating this message throughout your presentation as a mantra. Make your core message so obvious even a child could understand it and then use techniques to enhance its impact.

To keep your presentation message as simple as possible, there are six elements you should work at:

Taking each of these points in turn:

1. Find and clarify a concise core message

The first step in preparing an effective TED message is to figure out what your core message is. You only have 18 minutes to work with so you have to clarify what is the single core message you want to get across to the audience. It needs to be something you’re passionate about.

So how do you figure out what your core message should be? Perhaps it will already be obvious to you but if it’s not, think about how you would answer this question:

If the audience was to forget everything else I said, what is the one idea I would want them to remember?
