TED Talks

TED Talks

are some of the most inspirational stories and informative speeches on the net. Use these excellent public speaking videos to inspire you to overcome your fear of public speaking.

I thought you might enjoy the TED Commandments which set the scene for what you'll find on the site.

Some Of My Favorites

I like all sorts of speakers so don't expect any patterns in my choices.

What I do value are presentations that inspire me, or which have new information or a new perspective on an old issue and above all talks that make me laugh (or at least smile a bit).

I really hope you enjoy these and that you love public speaking at least a bit more after watching them.
