Slideshare of the Day: Talk Like TED by Carmine Gallo


The Professional Communication and Presentation reboot is well under way! I bought my copy of Pamela Slim’s Body of Work today and plan on spending the weekend devouring this text. Another book on my must-read list this year is Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds by Carmine Gallo. The TED model of presenting will continue to be a staple of how we discuss delivery in PCP. I’ve talked about the TED commandments before; these are the ten unofficial rules all TEDsters follow and their purpose is to help support TED’s mission, to find amazing people with amazing ideas and then spread them. Gallo’s book uncovers the nine qualities that TEDsters possess. In today’s Slideshare, a promotional tool for Talk Like TED, Gallo breaks down the qualities into three categories that define a successful TED talk: Emotional, Novel, and Memorable. In addition to swooning over the design, I particularly love how Gallo focuses on passion and storytelling as the core elements each TEDster needs to convey and communicate emotion, to help the audience feel what he or she feels about the subject at hand. Check out the rest of the deck below:
