TED Style Presentations

I enjoy making presentations and think that’s something I’m good at doing. I haven’t, however, made a TED-style presentation before and I don’t expect to make one in the foreseeable future either. However, I am interested in all kinds of presentation styles, types, and formats.

If you’ve watched any of the TED talks you’ll know what I mean by ‘TED-style presentation’. And if you’ve watched both old and new talks then you’ll know how that style (and the overall presentation format) has changed over the years.

So what is the TED presentation style and format? Presentation Zen’s Garr Reynolds can tell you, complete with a copy of ‘The TED Commandments’ that have been sent to speakers almost like a style/philosophy guide for making presentations at TED. If you’re a fan of TED, make sure you check it out.
