Speaking at Ted??!!
Posted by Amy Wilson on January 26, 2010
OK, here’s how it happened:
Somehow, Meg suckered me into going to TedActive (read: Meg generously offered to take me with her after busting her butt to apply and get accepted). Then, she dared me to submit a TedYou talk (read: Meg inspired me to show some balls and come up with a submission). I canvassed my set of personal stories and settled on my favorite love story (read: my husband is the funniest thing I have going for me).
So, now I need to figure out how to give a 5 minute talk (in the desert) that engages, surprises, entertains, and most importantly convinces people to talk to me and Meg throughout the rest of the conference. I am re-reading “How to get your point across in 30 seconds or less” to help with the process, but I’m thinking I need something that’s more story-telling oriented and less *pointy*. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
