Chris Anderson: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking

Wednesday 18th May 2016 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Chris Anderson, the president and head curator of TED, joins us to share his insights into how to make an exceptional public speech and keep any audience engaged. Trained as a journalist after graduating from Oxford University, Anderson launched more than 100 successful magazines and websites before turning his attention to TED, which he and his non-profit organization acquired in 2001. Famous for its powerful series of talks from such speakers as Sir Ken Robinson, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert and Brene Brown, TED's mission to 'spread ideas' has inspired many around the world.

 

On the occasion of the release of Anderson's new book TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking, he will be sharing his key techniques on how to give a first-class presentation, as well as letting us in on pitfalls to avoid. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the most prominent public speakers in the world, as well as ask him your questions on how to better improve your own presentations.

The evening will be chaired by journalist and author Cathy Rentzenbrink.

 

Nobody in the world better understands the art and science of public speaking than Chris Anderson. He is absolutely the best person to have written this book. - Elizabeth Gilbert
