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
Is your favourite Ted Talk on this list? If not, let me know what I’m missing out on!
