We've all seen a TED talk we really love. Maybe it changed your life in some way, made you laugh, made you cry, or made you think differently about your own future. As a speaker, it has probably crossed your mind that you would like to give your own TED talk. But how? What would you say? Do you have an idea worth spreading? On today's episode, I interview Julia Mines, a TED speaker coach who has worked with speakers to improve their talks and share something memorable. We talk about the mistakes TED speakers make, how much practice and prep it takes to make your talk impressive, where TED speakers fail, how to make your talk stage-ready, and how to look for the stories in your own life that are worth telling. Julia offers speech coaching and you can find her here. If you'd like to watch my two TEDx talks, you can find them here and here. If getting to the TED stage is on your list of goals, you've come to the right place.
