HOW TO GIVE A GREAT TED TALK
Here's my advice and some tips for giving a superb TED Lecture... You'll have to see if I followed my own advice in the video below...
Time yourself before the event if you can (with pauses for rapturous applause and uncontrollable laughter)- because often, at TED events they have a timer and will stop you after 18 minutes.
If you can ask the organisers to mic the audience, that'd be great, then the video of you speaking won't seem quiet when they're actually laughing - like mine below.
Tell the audience right at the start what you're going to say, then say it, then sum up what you said at the end
4) AVOID DEATH BY POWERPOINT
Don't have more than five words on any of your main slides
5) YOUR BREATHING
Be conscious of your breathing when you go on, so you slow it down and become centred
Smile when you go on the stage... It'll make you feel better and your audience relax.
All just my opinion of course! Wishing you a great talk...I'm sure you'll shine!

"Shed. I’ve never met a character like him. He pitched up in a shiny satin suit and made us squirm, blush and whaddyaknow, think! His can-do attitude and tenacity is an example to us all, even if our own work is quite far removed from Designer Beavers and Pubix Cubes. He’s also incredibly enthusiastic, getting involved with every stage of the event from planning it to judging the competition. We weren’t quite sure what our clients would make of it all but they were thoroughly entertained and, like Shed’s products, the evening has certainly proved to be a talking point."
