Get ready to give your best Talk!

Here is a list of talks that give tips on how to give a great presentation, talk or speech.
First comes first.
A great talk talks about an IDEA. A message.
So the script comes first. Forget Powerpoint and Prezi and start with pen and paper. Think of the main message or idea you want to deliver and work around that. This main message should guide your script. From beginning to end, a TEDTalk is one thing, like an article for a magazine. You don't start saying good morning everyone, you don't start thanking the organizers for the invitation. Your first sentence is already part of your message. And the last sentence should be a strong way to make people remember what your main message is all about.

How I beat stage fright
Humanity's fine-tuned sense of fear served us well as a young species, giving us laser focus to avoid being eaten by competing beasts. But it's less wonderful when that same visceral, body-hijacking sense of fear kicks in in front of 20 folk-music fans at a Tuesday night open-mic.
Why I live in mortal dread of public speaking
Megan Washington is one of Australia's premier singer/songwriters. And, since childhood, she has had a stutter. In this bold and personal talk, she reveals how she copes with this speech impediment-from avoiding the letter combination "st" to tricking her brain by changing her words at the last minute to, yes, singing the things she has to say rather than speaking them.
