My Five Favourite Ted Talks Of All Time
I really love Ted Talks. I have the Ted app on my mobile, and watch talks while I do the washing up. I watch them on Netflix in the evenings (now that I’ve finished Orange Is The New Black). I find them informative and inspiring and challenging and often more entertaining than TV’s latest offerings.
Here are my five favourite Ted Talks of all time…
1. Amy Cuddy: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are
I made my sister do the poses in this video before her first ever job interview, and she got the job. When her friend applied for a job at the same place, she told him about the poses – and he got the job too! This stuff really works, and I think everyone should watch this video. Repeatedly.
2. Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?
This talk absolutely blew my mind. Ken Robinson is an amazing speaker who entertains as well as informs. I have recommended this talk to so many people since watching it, and re-watched it even more times myself. I love it. And he makes a valid point!
3. Rita Pierson: Every Kid Needs a Champion
4. Brene Brown – The Power of Vulnerability
5. Susan Cain – The Power of Introverts

I think it would be hard for me to list my top 5 as just about all Ted Talks have a great message to deliver. Here are 5 that I have watched more than once. Zak Ebrahim - His father was a terrorist. This talk is about how he, despite being groomed to follow in his father's footsteps, chose not to. For me, the underlying message is that people have a choice; it is up to them who they become. http://www.ted.com/talks/zak_ebrahim_i_am_the_son_of_a_terrorist_here_s_how_i_chose_peace David Epstein - I was pointed to this Ted Talk by a friend. Something I have never had to do a lot of in the past is present to an audience. I wanted to take inspiration from as many sources as I can because frankly, I find most peoples presentations dull; consisting of walls of words on a screen which are often read from by the presenter. I wanted to see examples of a presentation where the presenter was doing the talking, not the Powerpoint/Keynote. Here is such a Talk. http://www.ted.com/talks/david_epstein_are_athletes_really_getting_faster_better_stronger Arthur Benjamin - MatheMagic - Just a bit of fun. :-) http://www.ted.com/talks/arthur_benjamin_does_mathemagic Hannah Fry - The Mathematics of Love - This one came up on my phone when I pressed "surprise me". Perhaps a touchy subject for some people, but I found the talk interesting all the same. http://www.ted.com/talks/hannah_fry_the_mathematics_of_love James Lyne - Everyday cybercrime - and what you can do about it - Something that has always been of a concern to me. This will prove what I said about me being a bit of a nerd! :-) http://www.ted.com/talks/james_lyne_everyday_cybercrime_and_what_you_can_do_about_it
