The Ted-Talk Style
Inspired by the global success of TED Talks, the forum is modeled after this style of speaking. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation devoted to spreading ideas—usually in the form of short, powerful talks. These talks tend to stray from the standard PowerPoint-guided keynote toward a more engaging, distilled experience that communicates the best part of these ideas.
