Tips from TED: Making your pitches and debriefs unforgettable

No matter if you have unique experience or a hot new methodology: if your pitches sound the same as everyone else’s, or the details of your approach are obscured in science, you won’t win the project. One solution: learn from the wildly successful TED Talks format. You can communicate your idea or proposal compellingly in a short time using humour, inspiration and proven story structures – and have the client holding their breath to hear the end of your pitch.

In this session learn how to apply TED’s powerful storytelling techniques and structures, the core essentials that every pitch needs to have – ensuring you create a compelling narrative throughout your pitch that your audience can easily follow and engage with. TEDx techniques can transform not just pitches and creds presentations, but also debriefs – tying together insights, data and personal stories to create unforgettable impact.
