TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. There is no Ted, Theodore, or Teddy Bear that will teach you how to give a TED Talk if you email him.
TED Talks are limited to 18 minutes. This is long enough to be serious but short enough to hold people’s attention. A coach will show you how to put your information in this framework when you learn how to give a TED style Talk of your own.
The short answer is “no.” TED will pay your expenses involved in traveling to give your talk, but you will not be paid for your talk specifically. But if you actually get to give a TED Talk, the value of your reputation and your credentials skyrocket. The dollar amount wrapped up in that kind of boost speaks for itself.
They offer a number of pieces of advice. One that stands out is, “Don’t replicate past TED Talks.” Of course, a Moxie has coaches that have taught TEDx speakers across numerous events and will take you deeper than general tips on how to give a TED style Talk.
Perfect! That’s exactly why we teach how to give TED style talks. We don’t expect you to run right out and apply to give a TED Talk. Our expert coaches will train you to give all your talks in the TED style based on their experience from training TEDx speakers. Whether you keep that knowledge to impress in the boardroom and corporate events or try to take it to the red circle is up to you. You can also learn by watching some of our favorite TED speakers.
