  1. I love the TED talk with Jamie Oliver. There is no doubt that he is very passionate about his topic. He used his slides to create emotion and surprise. I loved it when he tipped the wheelbarrow of sugar onto the stage to give some meaning to the numbers.

    • Richard – Thanks for the recommendation. Jamie certainly is passionate about his topic. I agree, his slides and the stories he told tap at the emotions and it certainly is making me think about the food I’m putting in my mouth. And isn’t that the point of a strong presentation, to move us to action. Thank for sharing Richard!

  2. Here’s my favorite TED Talk – the one that got the standing ovation at TEDx Maastricht:

    “Doing the Impossible, Swallowing the Sword, Cutting Through Fear”


    • Thanks for recommending the TED talk, Dan! I’m a little scared to watch it! But I’ll cut through the fear and watch it anyway!
