Book for the next course in Manchester on 21 September

Public speaking can be stressful and scary, so it is not surprising that many people avoid it. The problem is that this does nothing for their confidence, career and ability to win support for their ideas.

But if you’re ready to learn the techniques used by TED speakers and are willing to do some practice, you will become a highly effective public speaker.

Join us in Manchester to learn the mindset and methods used by TED speakers. Start the journey towards becoming a TED Talk Style Speaker.

Course Summary

We believe business presentations should be more like talks we love to watch at TED.com. That’s why we have created the TED Talk Style Presentation course to help the next generation of leaders learn and practice the key principles of TED style public speaking.

You will learn the speechwriting secrets of TED speakers and a repeatable framework that will boost your impact in meetings, conference presentations and when your pitching ideas.

The course is led by Professional Speechwriter and TEDx speaker coach, Craig Millar. He will share with you the methods he uses when helping leaders from the world of sport, academia and business to develop inspiring, TED style talks.

If you want to make peace with public speaking, get yourself on the right track and take your leadership impact to the next level, there is no better way to do it.

What will I learn?

You’ll learn how to:

  • Better understand your strengths and style as a speaker
  • Plan and structure your talk like a TED speaker
  • Manage your public speaking nerves, self-doubts and the temptation to be ‘average’
  • Positive body language habits and how to cut out any bad habits
  • How to use your voice to best effect
  • Find creative ways to make your message memorable
Will I get to practise my public speaking?

Yes, there will be several opportunities to practise giving short talks (2 – 4 minutes) in front of a small supportive group.

You’ll get encouragement and feedback from the course leader and other participants as you practice applying the methods of TED Talk Style Presentation.

Can introverts become inspiring speakers?

Absolutely yes! Introverts* have a range of advantages that can help them become highly effective public speakers.

Although the popular image of a great public speaker is a charismatic extrovert, the reality is that many of the great speakers in history have been introverts.

Public speaking advantages held by introverts may include a greater propensity to:

  • Rehearse thoroughly
  • Think deeply about their most important message
  • Write down and bring some structure their talk
What are the benefits to my organisation?

Many would say the ability to share ideas in a way that inspires is the number one trait associated with senior leadership. It creates the passion, energy and enthusiasm to make things happen.
