Recipe for a GREAT TEDx Terry Talk

Each application looks different


Sift equal parts interesting concept and strong speaking ability. Add 2 teaspoons confidence in yourself and stir until you see bits of your personality visible throughout your mixture. Sprinkle a pinch of humour and excitement and then re-mix your mixture ensuring all ingredients are well combined. Remove all irritating speaking mannerisms, and pour your batter into a pan prepared with an excellent speaking voice, a reasonable speaking speed and minimal use of notes.

Once done, send your application to TEDx Terry Talks 2009 by September 15th 2009.
