All right. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my passion and to my love and, according to my wife, my mistress in life.
Seven years ago, I embarked on a journey to analyze 5,000 public speakers from all over the world — amateurs and professionals — in order to distill and understand what makes a good speaker good, what makes a great speaker great, and what makes an outstanding speaker outstanding. The result: 110 core skills, with loads of sub skills.
So what does it look like? It looks like this: These are the 110 core skills and the equation is simple. The more of them you fulfill the greater you are.
Now, 110 skills that’s quite a tad too many to go through in one TED talk; don’t you agree?
