Talk Like TED [Book]

Book Overview: Ideas are the currency of the twenty-first century. In order to succeed, you need to be able to sell your ideas persuasively. This ability is the single greatest skill that will help you accomplish your dreams. TED Talks have redefined the elements of a successful presentation and become the gold standard for public speaking. TED―which stands for technology, entertainment, and design―brings together the world’s leading thinkers. These are the presentations that set the world on fire, and the techniques that top TED speakers use will make any presentation more dynamic, fire up any team, and give anyone the confidence to overcome their fear of public speaking.

Quotes from Book! Buy from Amazon!

“When you deliver a presentation, your goal should not be to ‘deliver a presentation.’ It should be to inspire your audience, to move them, and to encourage them to dream bigger.  You cannot move people if they don’t think you’re real.  You’ll never convince your audience of anything if they don’t trust, admire, and genuinely like you.” ~ Carmine Gallo, Talk Like TED

“Creativity is often misunderstood.  People often think of it in terms of artistic work – unbridled, unguided effort that leads to beautiful effect.  If you look deeper, however, you’ll find that some of the most inspiring art forms – haikus, sonatas, religious paintings – are fraught with constraints.” ~ Marissa Mayer, via Talk Like TED

“Authentic happiness can only come from the long-term cultivation of wisdom, altruism, and compassion and from the complete eradication of mental toxins, such as hatred, grasping, and ignorance.” ~ Matthieu Richard, via Talk Like TED

“Ask yourself, ‘What makes my heart sing?’  Your passion is not a passing interest or even a hobby.  A passion is something that is intensely meaningful and core to your identity.  Once you identify what your passion is, can you say it influences your daily activities?  Can you incorporate it into what you do professionally?” ~ Carmine Gallo, Talk Like TED
