Book Review of “How to give the perfect TED talk”- Presentation Secrets of the World’s Best Speakers by Akash Karia
This book gives you the SUCCESs checklist for creating a presentation of impact just like some of the most powerful TED talks.
The corner stones of the book are:
Keep it Simple
Illuminate the Unexpected
Concentrate your message
Make it Credible
Share your self through Stories.
It is a simplified model of the TED commandments, but is a powerful model that can be used in every single presentation scenario especially in the business context for getting your idea across and making it stick. Beneath the cornerstones is a wonderful road map that will allow even a simple novice to compile, construct, write and deliver a powerful life changing talk.
As a TED speaker trainer, I highly recommend this to book to anyone aspiring to deliver at this level.
