TED talks have changed people’s expectations—not just about what makes for a great idea, but how to talk about one. And those expectations? They’re fast becoming what your managers, colleagues, staff, and customers expect from your marketing and sales presentations, too. The problem is, even if you got some training on how to give a presentation (and that’s rare), you probably never got training on how to put one together in the first place. But while TED talks are changing the future of communications—and fast—the principles that make great TED talks great can teach us how our presentations can, and will, change as well.
