What Makes a Great Speaker Great?

Another great TEDx talk from David JP Phillips, discussing the 110 techniques of communication and public speaking


Communicating is something that we all do every day of our lives - with friends, family, work colleagues and acquaintances - and usually something we don't give a second thought too. But 75% of people in the world claim to fear public speaking more than death itself! What is it about public speaking that people fear so - and what are the tools and techniques that we can all employ to help us become better at addressing groups of people?

David JP Phillips has spent 7 years studying 5000 speakers, amateurs and professionals in order for the first time in history to detail every single skill a communicator from stage or in a presentation uses in order to deliver their message. This TEDx talk gives you the very most important ones to bring with you to your next presentation or even everyday communication! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
