8 Ted Talks That Teach Public Speaking (INFOGRAPHIC)

by . January 13th, 2015

Few things can inspire potential investors and employees quite like a well-delivered speech. Unfortunately, most of us are terrible at them. Here’s how to cope.

Whether it’s because of fear or some hard-to-displace quirk of personality, many entreps — heck, most people — dread the idea of having to address a crowd in the flesh. It’s one of the most common fears there is. Reaching out to thousands or even millions might  not be the biggest deal for most of us, but talking to a much smaller group of people that’s physically right in front of you can be intimidating.

Fortunately, some of the best public speakers on the TED circuit have a ton of ideas to spare.
