I’ve read just about every article on how to give a good TED Talk, and I’ve watched every TED talk about giving a TED Talk. I’ve been involved with numerous TEDx productions, including TEDxUNLV, TEDxLA, and TEDxUCIrvine, and I’ve also helped coach a number of people who have given TEDx talks, including Brian MacMahon and Daniel Midson-Short. Being on stage, as well as having experience backstage has given me a first-hand look into the process of creation, tweaking, fine-tuning, rehearsing, and everything else that goes into preparing for the big TEDx performance.
